Dr Michael Platt has published a book, "Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness". He examines the role that adrenaline may plan in a number of conditions that are quite often misunderstood, including ADHD, Irritable bowel syndrome, PTSD and Autism. He offers dietary ways to control the over-production of adrenaline.
With a background in diseases that cause pheochromocytoma -- a tumor that causes over-production of adrenaline -- Joyce is eager to discuss with him how to differentiate between pheos and the kind of medically treatable adrenaline dominance that he discusses in his book. Pheos are difficult to diagnose, and they notoriously do not respond to medical treatment. Undiagnosed pheos can be life-threatening if they are not diagnosed and removed, especially during pregnancy. Some pheos can even metastasize. If you have a pheo, it is extremely important to diagnose and remove this dangerous tumor. Pheos are also sometimes called paragangliomas, especially when they occur in the region of the chest or neck. They can occur anywhere from the earlobe to the groin, on either side of the body, along the sympathetic nervous system.

There are more than 20 tiny genetic flaws that can increase one's chance of having a pheo or para. If you know that any of these conditions runs in your family, be sure to get tested for the presence of one of these tumors before embarking on Dr. Platt's treatments. It will be easier to diagnose the pheo-para before this treatment.
PGLNext is a next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel that simultaneously analyzes 10 genes associated with an increased risk of developing paragangliomas and/or pheochromocytomas (PGL/PCC).
Utilizing next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, Ambry Genetics developed a comprehensive testing panel comprised of 10 genes implicated in PGL/PCC susceptibility (MAX, NF1, RET, SDHA, SDHAF2, SDHB, SDHC, SDHD, TMEM127, VHL).
Allen Wilson of the Pheo Paratroopers joins Joyce and Mike to talk about the organization, its mission, and the recent International Conference on Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma.
Pheochromocytomas ("pheos" for short) are hormone-secreting tumors that can provoke that "fight or flight" response that has been protecting us from danger since the saber-toothed tiger. While it is an important response, if there is in fact no danger, the artificial response can cause changes in blood pressure and digestion. If not corrected quickly, this continual jagging of the system can lead to cardiovascular damage.
Pheochromocytomas in the chest or neck are usually called paragangliomas. They occur on the ganglia (bunches of nerves) along the sympathetic nervous sytem.
There are many genetic flaws that can increased the odds of getting a pheo. Families who know they are at risk can do periodic screening to find pheos and paras early, so that they can be treated before cardiovascular damage occurs.
