5 Foods That Destroy Your Hormones and Skin
 
04:06
Once we leave the teenage years, we may think acne is a thing of the past. But later in life, an imbalance of hormones can shake things up and acne takes center stage again. An endocrine imbalance is the culprit responsible for triggering hormonal acne. Women in mid-cycle and/or right before their periods are easy prey. These are the two times a month when estrogen and testosterone spike. These two hormones can accumulate if not properly detoxed. And when estrogen dominates, the complexion is fertile ground where inflamed skin and acne can thrive. Luckily there is a natural solution that may provide relief. The first step is to pay attention to your diet. The food you ingest can disrupt your hormones which in turns, produces inflammation. But on the flip side, the right kinds of food can balance hormones and soothe your skin. In today’s video we’ll examine the foods which work for and against your hormones. Foods to Avoid 1. Soy Soy has been on the suspect list of instigating acne. If you think you are sensitive to soy, try eliminating it from your diet and see if your condition improves. It contains phytoestrogens which can create a hormonal imbalance. 2. Dairy Excess dairy consumption can contribute to a surplus of hormones that can lead to acne. Dairy is also a primary cause for leaky guy syndrome. 3. Gluten Like dairy, Gluten can disrupt hormones. It can create intestinal inflammation and produce a domino effect of health issues. 4. Caffeine Caffeine is a kick-starter for millions every morning. Yet it often comes with a tradeoff. It can take its toll on your skin’s immune response. A steady combination of coffee and tea can strip away many essential vitamins which are essential to maintaining a vibrant complexion. 5. Canola, Sunflower, Safflower and Vegetable Oil If you have acne-prone skin, put these oils on your radar as ones to avoid. They have certain nutrients that can ignite a fire storm on your complexion, especially during peak estrogen days. The Best Foods for Your Complexion 1. Avocados Avocados contain a substance that can bring hormone levels back under control. Adding avocados to your diet can be a natural defense system to ward off inflammation. 2. Turmeric Another spice you may already have in your kitchen cabinets is Turmeric. Besides its natural ability to reduce inflammation, pain and swelling, it’s also a remedy for your skin. 3. Chia Seeds One of the highest sources of omega-3’s in nature can be found in this gluten-free grain. These little marvels can stabilize blood sugar, improve insulin sensitivity and keep blood pressure spikes in check. 4. Cinnamon In your spice rack, you may already have a secret weapon. Cinnamon. This aromatic spice contains anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help regulate hormones. 5. Pomegranates Mood swings can be tempered by eating Pomegranates. They produce the same estrogens that female ovaries do. They also are rich in anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. -------------------------------------------------------- Disclaimer: The materials and the information contained on Natural Cures channel are provided for general and educational purposes only and do not constitute any legal, medical or other professional advice on any subject matter.

Coffee, Caffeine and The Adrenal Fatigue Connection
 
14:23
Coffee, Caffeine and The Adrenal Fatigue Connection Schedule a FREE Consult: http://www.justinhealth.com/free-consultation In this video, Dr. Justin Marchegiani tackles the connection between coffee and caffeine to your adrenal fatigue condition. Can coffee cause adrenal fatigue? Should you avoid caffeine? Coffee consumption can be like a double edge sword for most people. Caffeine and coffee can stimulate your thyroid, adrenals to make more cortisol, and adrenaline which can have performance-enhancing benefits. While on the same side caffeine can weaken already dysfunctional adrenal glands driving anxiety, fatigue, and poor sleep. Coffee and caffeine can have cognitive and fat burning benefits while at the same time it may also contain toxins that can put additional stress on an individual’s already overburdened liver. In this video Dr. Justin reviews who may benefit from coffee and who should stay away from it. Dr. Justin also reviews compounds you can add to the coffee to lessen the negative effects of caffeine and enhance its benefits. ===================================== Gluten Video Series: http://www.justinhealth.com/gluten-video-series Thyroid Hormone Balance Video Series: http://www.justinhealth.com/thyroid-hormone-balance Female Hormone Balance Video Series: http://www.justinhealth.com/female-hormone-balance ===================================== ***Click below to SUBSCRIBE for more Videos http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=justinhealth ===================================== Dr. Justin Marchegiani Email: office@justinhealth.com Newsletter: http://www.justinhealth.com/newsletter Google +: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/115880353981241082117/115880353981241082117/ Visit us at: http://www.JustInHealth.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/justinhealthwellnessclinic Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/just_in_health Linked In: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/dr-justin-marchegiani/56/804/50a/ -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "GI Issues — Malabsorption, Infection & Inflammation in the Eye and Joint | Dr. J Live Q & A" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGf7F1Xi6po -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Is Coffee Bad for You?
 
05:11
For more info: https://draxe.com/coffee-nutrition-facts/?utm_campaign=Youtube-Jan-2015&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=coffee One of the most common questions I’ve been getting recently is, “Is coffee bad for you?” The answer is, yes … and no. Coffee is beneficial because it contains massive amounts of antioxidants, which help slow the aging process and protect you from free radical damage. Coffee also helps stimulate the liver and increases circulation, helping blood flow to the brain. Coffee can be harmful in some ways because of the amount of caffeine it contains. The caffeine in coffee can overstimulate the body, burn out your adrenal glands, and overtax your body. About 80% of people in the world will struggle with thyroid problems or fatigue issues. For this group, I wouldn’t recommend coffee because it will burn out your adrenal glands. However, if you’re generally healthy, then drinking coffee in moderate amounts can be fine, and even good for your health. I wouldn’t recommend drinking coffee past lunch time because it can affect your sleep cycle that night. Depending on the condition of your body, if you’re suffering from an autoimmune disease, coffee can make your disease worse. If you’re pretty healthy, looking for a pick-me-up, or looking for more antioxidants, then coffee can provide you these benefits. When picking out your coffee beans, I would recommend choosing all natural, organic coffee because it’s one of the most highly sprayed plants in the world. Lastly, if you’re looking for a great substitute for coffee, I would suggest drinking matcha green tea because it has great benefits and one-third the amount of caffeine. *This content is strictly the opinion of Dr. Josh Axe, and is for informational and educational purposes only.

This Is What Happens When You Drink a Coffee on an Empty Stomach
 
03:06
You might think drinking coffee in the morning is a great idea. You may even think it’s a great way to get yourself going in the morning. But you’d be surprised to learn that drinking coffee first thing in the morning- especially on an empty stomach- is a terrible idea. Why? Let’s take a look at a few reasons. 1. Stomach Acid Your stomach has hydrochloric acid, which, at the right level, helps your body digest food properly. When your stomach is empty, this acid doesn’t have much to work with, so it can slosh around and hurt your stomach. Drinking a cup of coffee on that empty stomach adds to the problem by putting more acid in your body. Always having too much stomach acid will harm your stomach and digestive tract, leading to problems like heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome, and stomach ulcers. 2. Bad Digestion Having caffeine on an empty stomach ruins digestion, leading to a bloated feeling and other signs of irritable bowel syndrome, like pain and irregularity. How? Caffeine acts like your adrenal glands, which create stress hormones called cortisol and adrenaline. When these hormones flood your body, they raise your heart rate and blood pressure, and your liver starts letting out blood sugar to give energy to muscles so that you can run away. Your digestive system also shuts down to send energy to where it is needed most. 3. Anxiety When you go through your morning on an empty stomach, you lower your brain’s power to properly break down serotonin. Serotonin is the “happy, calm hormone”. When your brain is unable to break down this hormone properly, it causes anxiety and depression. Throwing a cup of coffee on top of that empty stomach causes anxiety by boosting your body’s cortisol and adrenaline levels. That will leave you feeling shaky, nervous, and weak. 4. Dehydration Drinking coffee on empty stomach raises the amount of fluid that your body passes, and can cause dehydration. If you’re like most people, you’ll likely answer to that dehydration by reaching for yet another cup of coffee, making things even worse for yourself. 5. Low Levels of Serotonin Very few people know about this, but coffee will make you feel less hungry. People who drink coffee right away in the morning sometimes end up skipping breakfast. Skipping your first meal of the day can ruin your body’s power to make serotonin, a neurotransmitter in charge of making you feel happy and calm. Also, serotonin is very important for a good night’s sleep. Your body changes serotonin into melatonin at night. Low levels of melatonin usually lead to insomnia problems. If you like drinking coffee, make sure to always have it after breakfast.

Our organism needs adequate foods consumed in right nutrition amounts in order to function at its peak performance. Young women should consume particular hormone balancing foods, in order to control their menstrual cycles and their hormones. These are women that are less active and middle aged women. These foods can be extremely beneficial in dealing with hormones for pre-menopausal women. These hormone balancing nutrients are great for older women who are going through menopause and those who have passed it, because these foods will make them look younger and will prevent the formation of wrinkles. The bodies are not able to produce hormones or maintain a balance of hormones without the foods that are rich in nutrients. Here are 5 foods that are the best to be avoided and 5 essential foods for women. BENEFICIAL 1. YOGURT. Yogurt is ancient and has a large range of health advantages. Yogurt is rich in calcium, that is perfect for strong bones and probiotics that help to increase healthy bacteria in the gut. Vitamin D is also an essential part of balancing hormones and aging gracefully. 2. Fatty Fish. Omega-3 fatty of acids is the most important for the women’s cellular health. They are beneficial because they can prevent diseases and conditions such as including heart disease, hypertension, inflammatory disease, and depression. 3. Vegetables Rich in Antioxidants. Dark leafy greens are rich in antioxidants. Foods that are considered to be essential for proper hormonal balance are: kale, collard greens, spinach, and cilantro. 4. Healing Spices. Herbs and spices are great for keeping youthful, radiant skin. Women should use cinnamon, ginger, and garlic, because they will help them to stabilize their moods, stabilize their hormones, and remain looking young longer. 5. Avocado. Avocados are rich in healthy fat, which help females’ bodies absorb and use key nutrients. Avocados are also in fiber, rich in magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, folic acid, and B-vitamins, which are all essential for balancing hormones. AVOID: 1. SUGAR Sugar is often considered to be the number one enemy. The consumption of sugar is the main reason of obesity and diabetes. It may lead to hormonal imbalance in women. Additionally, it is very bad for the pancreas, the liver and the digestive system generally. Consuming sugar also compromises the nervous system for up to 50%. 2. Alcohol The intake of alcohol harms your organism by dehydrating it and also making your body organs function over time. If you are having hot flashes, you should avoid alcohol. 3. Caffeine Women going through menopause, should avoid caffeine, because it causes hot flashes. It promotes anxiety and nervousness in younger women. Cutting down on caffeine helps in balancing the body without adding a jolt to your system. 4. High-Glycemic Foods The blood sugar plays an important role in the hormone levels, the High glycemic foods can disrupt the balance. Foods such as white bread, sugar and fruit juice to increase insulin levels and change the way estrogen is metabolized. 5. Soy Soy contains phytoestrogen. It often mimics the body’s naturally occurring hormone functions. Also, they may have a negative impact on the thyroid as they suppress its function, and the thyroid needs to stay healthy in order to control the women’s hormones . Thyroid hormones regulate heart rate, balance blood pressure, maintain body temperature and maintain the appropriate metabolic rate for converting food to energy. The excessive soy consumption may have several negative health effects, for instance: infertility, weight gain, mood swings and also muscle loss. As a conclusion, eating the right foods will make your life easier and you will feel great

Testosterone: 3 Ways to Balance Hormones- Thomas DeLauer
 
06:41
Testosterone: 3 Ways to Balance Hormones- Thomas DeLauer… Get more nutrition advice at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com I want to focus on my three favorite compounds; Triulus, Maca and DIM. Tribulus is known as that testosterone booster, but it's so much more than that. Tribulus is derived from an ancient Chinese, and Indian, and Greek herb. It's been used for centuries. It's been used for a long period of time, not to necessarily help boost testosterone, but to help balance out hormones in general. First is Tribulus: Now, where tribulus essentially gets its powerful effect is from something called protodioscin, which is an active component in the tribulus. What this protodioscin does is it helps out our bioavailable free testosterone levels. It helps separate some of the molecules that allow this testosterone to be usable. Then, again, we have to look at the fact that tribulus by itself isn't always great because it can skew some of your hormones and put things out of balance. Next is Maca: What exactly does maca do? You see, maca is known as a hormone modulator. It doesn't necessarily increase any one specific hormone, but it works across all endocrine glands. That means it can help you with your adrenal function. It's going to help you with your thyroid function. It's going to help you with testosterone function, and it can help modulate estrogen as well, so it's doing a lot of things across the board. Maca balances our hormones by working on something called the HPTA, the hypothalamic–pituitary–gonadal axis. It works on brain signaling. Our brain is signaling different endocrine hormones. Rather than taking a specific compound that's working directly on one hormone, maca is working on modulating the brain signals. This allows our body to have that natural skewing of hormones that needs to happen based on activity, based on mood, whatever the case may be. The next compound I want to talk about is DIM: What exactly is DIM? When you look at the cruciferous vegetable, things like broccoli, things like cauliflower, things like bok choy, Swiss chard, anything that's cruciferous, they contain something called indole-3-carbinol. Now, what that IC3 is is basically an expanded version of DIM. There are small amounts of that diindolylmethane within IC3, but the amount of cruciferous vegetables that you would have to eat in order to elicit a positive response like you would get from just taking a DIM supplement is astronomical. You'd have to take a ton. When we look at DIM, it's basically a very concentrated form of the estrogen modulators that you get out of cruciferous vegetables. Let's talk about estrogen for just two seconds. We've got two different kinds of estrogen. We've got 2 hydroxy estrogen and we've got 16 hydroxy estrogen. We want to control the 16 hydroxy estrogen. That's the estrogen that is negative. That's the estrogen that helps you store fat. That's the estrogen that converts that aromatase enzyme, converts testosterone into more fat and more negative properties of estradiol. We want to control that one. The nice thing about DIM is it actually supports the good estrogen, the 2 hydroxy estrogen, and it helps kill off and crush the 16 hydroxy estrogen. What this does is it gets rid of the extra estrogen floating in the bloodstream that would normally be bound to testosterone. Consequently, you free up some of the testosterone so you kill two birds with one stone, not only do you eliminate the water retention, the bloating and potential fat gain from 16 hydroxy estrogen, but you also release some of the free testosterone that can allow you to get those male optimization benefits that you really want, the benefits that are going to help you feel better in the gym, the benefits that are going to help you make better decisions in the kitchen, the benefits that are going to help you in the bedroom, the things that a lot of us guys are always concerned with.

Fasting Effects on Metabolism and Thyroid- Thomas DeLauer
 
05:55
Click Here to Subscribe: http://Bit.ly/ThomasVid Website: http://ThomasDeLauer.com Fasting Effects on Metabolism and Thyroid- Thomas DeLauer… Thyroid Functions: The function of the thyroid gland is to take iodine, found in many foods, and convert it into thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3.) Thyroid cells are the only cells in the body which can absorb iodine - these cells combine iodine and the amino acid tyrosine to make T3 and T4. T4 (Thyroxine) is a prohormone and is inactive - when it is converted into its active form, T3 (Triiodide Thyronine), it can exert its action on the body metabolism in each and every cell in the body.It is released into the bloodstream and is transported throughout the body where it controls metabolism (conversion of oxygen and calories to energy.) Thyroid and Fasting: Many people with thyroid conditions, especially hypothyroidism, are concerned about the way intermittent fasting may affect thyroid function. There is a considerable amount of research examining the impact of fasting on thyroid function, but there is relatively little information regarding the role that intermittent fasting has on the thyroid gland. Most scientific articles include experiments in which a fasting state was created by 10 days or more without food - this is clearly not the same thing as intermittent fasting and is more closely related to starvation. Results from Longer Term Fasting Studies: A 2014 study from the European Journal of Endocrinology and a 2008 study from the journal Thyroid both found that fasting decreases the concentration of T3 thyroid hormone while thyroxine (T4) and free T4 levels stay the same or only decrease slightly - thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) does not increase. Triiodothyronine (T3) is a thyroid hormone that plays vital roles in the body's metabolic rate, heart and digestive functions, muscle control, brain development - it affects almost every physiological process in the body. Thyroxine (T4) is the main hormone secreted into the bloodstream by the thyroid gland. It plays vital roles in digestion, heart and muscle function, brain development and maintenance of bones. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (also known as thyrotropin or TSH) is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine (T4), and then triiodothyronine (T3) which stimulates the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body. What the Studies Mean: Multi-day (near starvation) fasting does change the level of the most active thyroid hormone (T3), but T4 (the precursor to T3) and the hormone used to test for thyroid function (TSH) are unchanged. So, multi-day fasting does affect the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axis, just not on the hormones that affect thyroid function in the body. Fasting changes levels of thyroid-releasing hormone (TRH) and leptin, yet other values are held relatively constant over several days. Fasting and Ramadan: Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan - for one month, they only eat after the sun has set. They follow a pattern of intermittent fasting - fasting for 8 to 12 hours during the day followed by nourishment. A study published in the Journal of Medical Sciences evaluated the effect of Ramadan fasting on serum levels of some hormones among 42 Jordanian healthy male students. The fasting did cause a few changes in blood measurements such as blood glucose, HDL and LDL; however, most markers were unchanged. More importantly, it had no significant effect on T3, T4, or TSH levels - there were slight detectable changes in these values, but they stayed within normal limits.

🏋️‍♂️ The Truth About Exercise: Does It Increase or Decrease Testosterone Levels?
 
08:24
My favorite, clinically proven formula for naturally increasing your testosterone and sex drive: 🤜http://drsam.co/yt/HackTestoLevels You can also watch this video on my channel: http://drsam.co/yt/BestVitaminForED ======================================= 🏋️‍♂️ The Truth About Exercise: Does It Increase or Decrease Testosterone Levels? ======================================= “I’m super confused about working out and exercise… does it increase or decrease testosterone levels? I’ve read mixed information and I think I’m doing something wrong because I’m not gaining any muscle, my belly looks fatter and worst of all, my sex drive is worse and it’s causing problems with my girlfriend. I’ve watched so many of your videos and I’ve applied your advice. I’ve gotten great results with my health. However, I don’t think you’ve ever answers this topic - Please help me Dr. Sam” Actually, I have addressed this question in the past, but not in detail or directly and that’s why I’m bringing this up today. And the truth is that I get a lot of questions about this topic. So the fact is that exercise can increase OR decrease your testosterone levels. It all depends on what you do, when, where, how often and for how long. And thus, you can gain OR lose muscle. Decrease OR increase belly fat. Gain OR lose strength. Increase OR decrease your energy levels. Improve or decline immune system. And you can increase or decrease your sex drive, libido and happiness. When I was younger, I would exercise 5-6x weekly. I would work out for at least an hour. I would lift heavy weights, I’d push hard and go to “failure” on all my exercises. I would also do cardio almost daily - for at least 30 minutes or more. Typically it was the bike, jogging, stairmaster, etc. It was a hard workout and I would always leave the gym feeling exhausted. However, I felt like I had a good, “honest” workout because I gave it my all and pushed as much as I can. I did this for years… The end result - sadly, I looked the same all the time!... I always seemed like I had a cold and I’d get sick often. I never had any energy to do much else -- I was just tired from my workouts. The end result is I looked “skinny-fat”. You know, not muscular or “lean”. It just didn’t look good. I was “puffy” and “squishy” all the time. And sadly, my sex drive was kinda “blah”. Granted, because I was YOUNG, it was still “okay”. However, compared to my friends - it was much lower. Then one day I decided to do a hormone test because I was just curious. Well, guess what -- my testosterone levels were low. Worst of all, my “negative” hormones were “high”... Thus, my hormones were not good, not optimal -- definitely not for a 23 year old man. ...When things should have been much better and I should have had super high testosterone levels. I realized then that without the right hormones - it doesn’t matter what you do, how much you exercise or what you eat -- you’re screwed! This is why steroids are so powerful. They give you “optimal” levels. However, you can make your own“natural steroids” from within, and not have any of the negative side-effects … IF you know what to do and more importantly, what NOT to do. So what does all of this have to do with the original topic of “exercise and increasing or decreasing your testosterone levels”?... Here’s the basic “short cuts” on the “do’s” and “don’ts” DO Lift weights! Keep your workouts short, 45 minutes or less. Workout no more than 4x weekly. Do one workout with heavier weights and lower reps - about 8-10 repetitions. And the next workout higher, about 12-15 reps. One week out of every month, reduce your sets and have easier workouts. DON’TS Eliminate or limit stressful cardio. This means no running, jogging, biking, etc. These all decrease your testosterone and increase stress hormones. Don’t kill yourself every workout, go to failure, pushing hard, etc. When you are “natural” and have “regular” genetics, you can’t push so much, so often… When I ask most people “what’s the opposite of testosterone”, people typically reply back with “estrogen”, the female hormone. However, this is not true. Actually, the opposite of testosterone is the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol does the opposite of testosterone. It decreases muscle and strength, increases belly fat, makes you tired and kills your sex drive. Again, “stress” is bad and the wrong workouts will cause stress on your body. ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

I’ve discussed different reasons for weight-loss resistance in past blogs. Many obstacles have nothing to do with what you eat or how much you exercise. Instead, they involve things like nutritional imbalances, chronic inflammation, metabolic challenges, leaky gut, changes in your microbiome, environmental toxins and your genes.

Why Does Testosterone Decrease | The Truth About How to Boost Testosterone- Thomas DeLauer

Click Here to Subscribe: http://Bit.ly/ThomasVid Get Antler Farms Deer Antler Velvet Here: https://www.antlerfarms.com/deer-antler-velvet-overview.htm Website: http://ThomasDelauer.com Why Does Testosterone Decrease? How Testosterone Declines in Men (Physiologically, HPTA Axis, etc) HPTA = Hypothalamic Pituitary Gonadal Axis This axis produces circulating steroids important for male sexual function, fertility and development. Prostate and penis are steroid sensitive organs impacted by the regulation of the HPTA. This reproductive axis consists of three parts: 1. Hypothalamus -Produces GnRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone) 2. Pituitary Gland -GnRH is sent to the pituitary gland where it stimulates the synthesis and release of gonadotropic hormones LH and FSH. 3. Testis -Gonads carry LH to the testis where they stimulate testosterone production through the testicular Leydig cells -Testosterone is produced by conversion of cholesterol -FSH is crucial for spermatogenesis Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the activated form of testosterone. 2% of testosterone is free or unbound, with the remainder being bound to SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin), albumin- and cortisol-binding globulin. Bioavailable testosterone is the testosterone that is not bound to SHBG. Testosterone and DHT act on organs. -Causes development of secondary sexual characteristics -Inhibit secretion of LH and FSH by the pituitary gland, thus stops further testosterone production = negative feedback loop. -There exist androgen receptors in the pituitary and the hypothalamic neurons that bind to testosterone and signal to stop GnRH release Homeostasis is maintained through this loop - once testosterone stops being produced, this inhibited secretion stops and GnRH again causes LH and FSH release to produce further testosterone. As men age, they undergo hormonal level changes: -Testosterone decrease -LH and FSH increase -Other hormones that decrease: T3, insulin, growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor 1, thyroid stimulating hormone -Also an increase in SHBG -Dihydrotestosterone levels are unchanged -Estrogen levels unchanged As men age, the decrease in testosterone paired with the increase in SHBG leads to a decline in free, or bioavailable, testosterone. These hormonal changes start in the 30s and are well established by the 50s. Levels of testosterone vary greatly between men and not all men will be classified as hypogonadal as they age. What causes these hormone changes? 1. Testicular failure due to a decline in Leydig cell mass 2. Hypothalamic-pituitary system, or secondary hypogonadism failure -Believed not to be due to primary hypogonadism (disease of the testes) due to small increase in LH and decrease in responsiveness of LH and FSH to GnRH 3. Change in androgen receptor site sensitivity One can distinguish between those with pituitary disorders or hypothalamic disease by administering GnRH. Those with pituitary disorders will not respond by producing more LH and FSH whereas those with hypothalamic disorders will respond with increased LH and FSH. Numerous studies have shown a positive impact of healthy, dietary fat intake on testosterone levels in men. Cholesterol is tied to the production of sex hormones. Testosterone is created in the Leydig cells when LH triggers the cells to convert cholesterol into testosterone. Cholesterol is the precursor to pregnenolone, which is the precursor of steroid hormones. Pregnenolone is the precursor of progesterone, which is then converted into testosterone (progesterone is also converted into cortisol and aldosterone.) Consume: fatty fish, olive oil, nuts and avocados. References: 1.

Circulation. 2011;123:e609. ======================================= 🤦‍♂️ #1 Disease That Causes Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Impotence ======================================= The first is hormonal imbalances and lower testosterone levels because of -Higher stress and faster pace lifestyle -Lack of key nutrients due to poor food production - pesticides, hormones in meats, etc. -Low physical activity and higher body fats Hormonal imbalances due to the environment and aging, causes physical symptoms of erectile problems, in addition to “emotional” problems with lowered sex drive, libido and the DESIRE to have sex. Remember, hormones affect you both physically and emotionally. However, there men who have ED, who have a normal sex drive and “desire”, but simply can’t get an erection or have difficulty maintaining it during sex. And in these situations, this tends to be more of a VASCULAR problem due to poor blood flow and circulation. What Causes ED? Remember, In order to achieve an erection, three conditions must occur: the nerves to the penis must be functioning properly the blood circulation to the penis must be adequate there must be a stimulus from the brain If there is something interfering with any or all of these conditions, a full erection will be prevented. #1 Disease That Causes ED There are different diseases that can cause erectile dysfunction. However, today I’m going to quickly discuss the #1 causing disease, which accounts for over 70% of physical-related causes of ED and that’s vascular disease!1,2 Simply stated, vascular diseases affect your blood vessels and restrict blood flow to your heart, brain and in the case of ED -- your penis. In fact, more specifically, atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of your arteries, accounts for almost 60% of ED cases in men over the age of 55!1,3 Erectile Dysfunction - A Sign Of Heart Disease? What’s interesting is that the newest research shows that men with ED typically also have heart problems.5 Thus, ED is a pre-warning sign that you may have a heart attack or stroke in the future because you have a buildup of plaque and calcium in your blood vessels.5 How To Improve Your Blood Flow The older we get, the worse your circulation becomes. This affects your entire body - from head to your two, inside and out. Remember, your blood contains oxygen, youthful hormones and nutrients to feed all of your cells. So you must improve your circulation for better health and longevity and this first starts with improving your lifestyle. This means: Reduce or eliminate fried fats. Eat natural, raw fats - raw nuts and seeds, avocados, extra virgin olive oil, fish oils and similar uncooked fats. Choose wild caught fish and cage-free poultry more often than red meat. Eliminate dairy, sugars and caffeine. Exercise more. If you smoke, quit. Lose extra weight. Eat more soluble fiber. Good sources are fruits, beans, peas, oats and fiber supplements. Manage stress and get more rest. These are the basics and I’m sure you already know most of these suggestions. Lifestyle improvements take time to see the benefits, so please be patient! However, you have to make the changes or else things will only get worse. Faster Results, With Less Effort Your next option if you want faster results with less effort, is to take specific herbs, vitamins and minerals. While also strengthening your vascular system and making your blood vessels and arteries more flexible, to help prevent a heart attack or stroke. This all translates to a healthier heart, mind and of course, better, harder and stronger erections. ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

9 Tips To Help Balance Hormones Naturally
 
01:18
Title: 9 Tips To Help Balance Hormones Naturally When it comes to health, hormones and gut bacteria have a much bigger effect than many people realize. In fact, these two factors can destroy health even if everything else (diet, supplements, etc.) is optimized. Conversely, regulating hormones and fixing gut bacteria can do a lot to boost health, even if not all the other factors are optimal. In fact, there are even studies about using certain hormone reactions to heal brain trauma. Here are the 9 tips to balance hormones naturally. 1)Avoid Harmful Chemicals: Pregnant women often try to use harmful chemicals to get pregnant. This causes hormonal imbalance. 2)Adding Herbs And Plants In Your Diet: Maca works as an adaptogenic herb which means that it adapts to each body’s circumstances and balances hormones. Red Raspberry Leaf increases fertility, prevent miscarriage. Vitex balance the body's hormones by regulating the pituitary. Milk Thistle is a liver cleansing herb. Oatstraw balance the endocrine system or those hormone producing glands. 3)Healthy Fats: This means eating saturated fats and cholesterol to get those short, medium and long-chain fatty acids. Enjoy plenty of fatty saltwater fish, coconut oil, avocados and grass-fed butter – all are amazing sources of essential fatty acids. Healthy fats also benefit you by keeping inflammation levels low, boosting the metabolism and increasing satiety. 4)Exercise: Exercise is a body normalizer. It balances the functions of the organs and keeps the hormones humming along nicely. Exercise also reduces anxiety, encourages quality sleep, curbs insulin levels and alleviates depression. 5)Leptin: Leptin is a protein that's made in the fat cells, circulates in the bloodstream, and goes to the brain. Leptin is the way your fat cells tell your brain that your energy thermostat is set right. 6)Cut Down Coffee: Caffeine strongly affects the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis: the linked system of hypothalamus and pituitary glands in the brain, and the adrenal glands that sit atop the kidneys. The HPA axis influences the body’s ability to manage and deal with stress, both at rest and during activity. Using herbal tea in place of coffee can help balance your hormones. 7)Never Compromise On Your Sleep: Unless you get 7–8 hours of sleep every night, you’re doing your body no favors. A lack of sleep or disturbing your natural circadian rhythm can be one of the worst habits contributing to a hormone imbalance. 8)Get The Right Supplements And Adequate Minerals: Ideally, we could get all of our nutrients from food, properly hydrate from water, and get enough Vitamin D from the sun on a daily basis. We’d get magnesium from the ocean and not get deficient in the first place since we’d be consuming adequate minerals from eating fresh seafood. Since this is rarely the case, supplements can sometimes be needed! I’ve shared the basic supplements that I take before, but certain supplements are especially helpful for hormone balance. 9)Gut Health: When in balance, our hormones can keep us feeling our best, ready to tackle each and every day with vitality. But, even small imbalances in this delicate system can cause our entire body to go haywire, leaving us feeling depleted and out of sorts. The good news is that new research indicates that taking care of your gut health can be the key to hormonal balance throughout your body.

🍾 Why Alcohol Is Killing Your Sex Drive, Lowering Your Testosterone & Making You Fat

My favorite, clinically proven formula for increasing your testosterone and improving your erections: ♂️ http://drsam.co/yt/BestTestoFormula You can also watch this video on my channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbNyVIqZ36s Refferences: 1. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3593480 2. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11912073 3. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11163119 ======================================= 🍾 Why Alcohol Is Killing Your Sex Drive, Lowering Your Testosterone & Making You Fat ======================================= Doc -- how bad is alcohol for my testosterone levels? I mean, I know it’s not good for health, but I don’t drink that much. These days, mainly on the weekends - like 2-3 drinks at the most. Well, maybe more at times (lol). But the reason I ask is because I notice it’s affecting my sex drive and my “hardness”. When I was younger, it wasn’t a problem, but for sure now. Is it the alcohol or just me getting older? Oh, I’m 36 by the way.” First, yes… aging has a lot to do with it because a man’s testosterone starts to drop in his mid 20’s. Since you’re in your mid 30’s at age 36, your testosterone has been slowly lowering for the past decade. However, the alcohol is just making things much worse and causing a FASTER drop in your testosterone levels and thus it’s killing your sex drive making you fatter and basically turning you into a woman! Let me tell you the 3 primary ways it’s doing this: Alcohol is a toxin - both to your body (liver, muscles, etc.) and your mind (neurons, synapses, etc.). As your body tries to metabolize alcohol (ethanol), it lowers the amount of NAD+ inside your liver and testes. This reduces the production of testosterone. The higher the quantity and frequency of alcohol usage, the lower the production of testosterone.1 Alcohol stimulates the brain to release beta-opioid endorphins, which is the reason why you get really relaxed after few beers. Sadly, those endorphins are also notorious for their negative effect on testosterone synthesis.2 Alcohol also causes an increase in your estrogen levels, which signals your testes to produce less testosterone.3 This also causes more belly fat, which indirectly produces even more estrogen. Thus, turning you into a “girly man”. Now, I’m not here to tell you to never drink. This is your life, your body, your future. My suggestion is to reduce the consumption of alcohol whenever possible. And if you’re going to drink, try to avoid beer because it tends to lower your testosterone the most due to the hops in the beer … They are very estrogenic and thus, causing the biggest imbalance between your male and female hormones. And lastly, the older you get, the bigger the problem alcohol is for your testosterone levels, as well as your overall health. But if you want to continue drinking, at the very least - make sure you take testosterone boosting herbs, vitamins and minerals every day, to help undo the damage from the alcohol consumption … especially if you’re over the age of 30. ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

What Does Sugar Do To Your Body? 10 Proven Negative Effects of Sugar
 
05:05
To support our channel and level up your health, check out: Our Fast Weight Loss Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/the-science-of-fast-weight-loss-course Our Better Health Basics Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/food-health-happiness Today, we’re going to be answering the question of what does sugar do to your body and the 10 negative effects of sugar. #1. Sugar can give you wrinkles and adds age to your face Scientists from the Leiden University Medical Centre, in the Netherlands, measured the blood sugar levels of 600 men and women aged between 50 and 70. In fact, for every 1mm/liter increase in blood sugar, the perceived age of that person rose by five months. http://www.research.leiden.edu/news/looking-older-blood-sugar-plays-a-role.html #2. Sugar is Also Associated With Acne Foods ranked high on the Glycemic Index such as sugar and refined carbs have been associated with greater amounts of acne on the face and body according to the latest research. A study of Australian men showed that those who ate a diet with a low glycemic load saw a great reduction in overall acne. It was a small study with only 23 men but is still food for thought. https://www.aad.org/media/news-releases/growing-evidence-suggests-possible-link-between-diet-and-acne #3. Sugary drinks cause an 83% increase in developing type II diabetes In one study of 91,249 women showed those who consumed 1 sugar-sweetened beverage a day had an 83% increased risk of developing type II diabetes compared to those who had only 1 a month. #4. People who eat sugar are at a much higher risk of cancer There has been a direct link seen between breast, and colon cancer with sugar consumption. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0306987783900956 http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/content/6/9/677.short This is likely due to the fact that insulin is one of the key factors behind the growth and multiplication of cells, and sugar spikes insulin to abnormally high levels. #5. Sugar Can Ruin Your Teeth A study by the American Journal of clinical nutrition showed that sugar destroys the healthy bacteria in our mouth. This can cause tooth erosions and may dim that bright smile. http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/78/4/881S.full What about sugar and weight gain? There are 5 proven reason sugar leads to added weight gain... #6. Sugar is the premier definition of empty calories. It has no real nutritional value, no nutrients, no minerals, no proteins, and no fiber. Because of this lack of nutrients… #7. Sugar makes you feel hungry In a study by Yale University, those that consumed sugar had an INCREASED appetite and desire for more food. http://yaledailynews.com/blog/2013/01/15/overeating-linked-to-sugar-consumption/ So not only does sugar fill you with empty calories, it makes you want more of those calories. This process happens because sugar screws up hormonal levels in the body. Which leads to #8. Sugar blocks leptin and raises insulin to supernatural levels Leptin is a hormone in charge of telling us we’re full and need to stop eating. It also tells us we have energy and should go out and use that energy. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18703413 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15111494 Sugar consumption blocks this hormone from doing its job and from reaching the brain. http://nutritionandmetabolism.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1743-7075-2-5 9. Sugar causes belly fat Numerous studies have shown direct links from sugar to increased accumulation of belly fat. Despite knowing all this, it’s hard to stop eating sugar because http://www.jci.org/articles/view/37385 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19248858 #10. Sugar is addictive Similar to drugs like cocaine, scientists have now shown that sugar causes a very similar release of dopamine in the brain. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2235907 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2851032/ Studies on neuroplasticity have shown that drug users have similar behavioral addictions to those addicted to sugar. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3139704/ Point black. Sugar is ADDICTING and comes without the immediate social repercussions of frequent drug use. That’s why it’s so hard to stop eating it. How much should you eat per day? None. There is not a reason to be eating this food in your diet, but only on the rare occasion as a treat. What about fruit? Fruit has fiber, vitamins, minerals, water, and tons of nutrients that refined sugar does not have. http://www.bmj.com/content/347/bmj.f5001 Sticking to whole sources like apples, oranges, and berries are a better idea. What should you do if you can’t stop eating sugar? I think this subject needs to be covered in greater detail, so either next week or sometime soon we will be making a video about breaking sugar addiction if that’s something you guys want.

How to Fix Adrenal Fatigue with 1 Easy Drink- Thomas DeLauer

Learn some of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue, the negative effects and how the adrenal glands function overall. Find out how this issue can affect sleep patterns, workout productivity, weight loss, sex drive and stress levels. Join Celebrity Trainer & Organic Foods Expert, Thomas DeLauer to Learn about how he combats adrenal fatigue with my clients at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com When we're stressed out, our bodies have a natural response, and like you see in many of my other videos, our bodies release that hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is fine and dandy, it does what it's supposed to do; it elevates our blood pressure, and it gets us prepared for that fight or flight response, that adrenaline response, that noradrenaline response. What happens when your adrenal glands stop working effectively? If you've ever woken up in the morning and feel like you just needed a cup coffee, like you just, coffee is what's going to pull you out of that slump, well, that's what it feels like to have adrenal fatigue. So, let's dive in to what you can do. The first one is what I call an adrenal cocktail. This is one of my favorites that I will tell you as someone that has worked in a corporate setting, and also as an entrepreneur myself I know exactly what it's like to slave a lot of hours and beat yourself up all the way to the point of exhaustion. So, I've used this cocktail specifically when I was going through a period of stress. And what you're going to do is you're going to take about four ounces of orange juice. Now, with that four ounces of orange juice you're going to take a quarter teaspoon of what's called cream or tartar. Now, cream of tartar, you may have used it in cooking, you've seen it on the shelves before and nobody ever really knows what to do with it. Now, there's one more thing you're going to add to that cocktail. You're going to add the Himalayan pink salt. The reason you're going to add the Himalayan pink salt is because when you have adrenal fatigue, what happens is your body starts excreting a lot of the natural sodium that you need through your urine. So, when your adrenals are taxed, your body is less efficient at modulating the potassium, the sodium, and the magnesium that it needs to function. So, by adding Himalayan pink salt, you take some of the stress off of the adrenal gland, off of the kidneys, and give them a chance to recover a little bit. Now, the important thing is that you have this adrenal cocktail first thing in the morning. You see, your cortisol levels are already at their highest in the morning, so if you can combat them with this adrenal cocktail, you're going to get a lot more benefit first thing so your body is receptive to it than you would, say later in the day.

Caffeine Burns Fat, Builds Muscle
 
09:43
Here is why you should continue to include caffeine in your diet. Get the references here: http://highintensityhealth.com/caffeine 1) Do Caffeine Drinkers Weigh Less? An analysis of some 18,000 individuals showed that caffeine and coffee users weigh less than those who don’t take any caffeine.[1] 2) Caffeine increases energy expenditure and thermogenesis Using energy to raise body heat is a great way to help burn fat, and caffeine does that well. But that is not all. Caffeine also lowers insulin and glucose, helping users become more metabolically healthy.[2] 3) Caffeine helps you burn more fat during exercise Caffeine has a glycogen-sparing effect, meaning fat will be preferentially used as fuel during exercise. 4) Caffeine breaks up stored fat so it can be burned This is called raising free fatty acids. Caffeine helps the body snip up stored fat so it can be burned inside the mitochondria.[3] 5) Caffeine assists with many aspects of cognition From increases in reaction time to concentration, memory, word recall, and attention span, caffeine helps with it all.[4] 6) Caffeine improves cardiovascular fitness, strength, and power performance Caffeine use before exercise increases work output and cardiovascular fitness without putting you at risk for heart disease, according to researchers in South Korea.[5] 7) Caffeine reduces perceived exertion and blunts the pain response This means that you can really push yourself at the gym, and it doesn’t feel as painful or challenging.[6,7] 8) Swishing caffeine around in your mouth before exercise may increase exercise performance Studies in sprinters have shown that caffeine swished around in the mouth may further enhance athletic performance and reduce the perceived exertion of exercise. Give this a shot.[8] 9) Green Coffee reduces cortisol production Fat cells contain an enzyme called 11β-HSD1, which activates cortisol from its inactive metabolite cortisone. Green coffee, it appears, slows down this enzyme. 10) Super-high doses of caffeine are not needed Scientists in Canada recently revealed that we don’t need super-high doses of caffeine to improve our ability to burn fat and exercise more intensely. Around 100 mg will do

Appetite Control: 3 Ways to Boost Weight Loss - Thomas DeLauer.
 
04:22
Appetite Control | 3 Ways to Boost Weight Loss- Thomas DeLauer… Consulting, Business & Health - http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com 5-HTTP: - 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a chemical that the body makes from tryptophan (an essential amino acid that you get from food). 5-HTP and Appetite - Serotonin is a nervous system messenger, also called a neurotransmitter, with many functions in the body. One of those functions is that it can help to reduce appetite. - In the body, 5–HTP crosses the blood–brain barrier and increases central nervous system (CNS) production of serotonin. - Once the serotonin is produced it reduces or stops the hunger pangs. Two types of serotonin receptors (called 5–HT1B and 5–HT2C) have been specifically recognized as promoting serotonin–induced satiety. (1) Coffee: Chlorogenic Acid (CGA) - Chlorogenic acid is a polyphenol antioxidant found in coffee. - This antioxidant reduces blood glucose and insulin levels after a meal Case Studies: - In one study, it was found that CGA acts to suppress body weight gain and visceral fat accumulation in mice. - Reported that CGA is possibly effective against weight gain and fat accumulation by inhibition of fat absorption and activation of fat metabolism in the liver - Oral administration of CGA (30 and 60 mg/kg/day) for 14 days dramatically reduced the level of hepatic TG in mice - Another study investigated the effect of CGA on altering body fat in high-fat diet (37% calories from fat) induced obese mice - Found that CGA significantly lowered body weight, visceral fat mass and plasma leptin, and insulin levels compared to the high-fat control group - Also lowered lowered triglyceride and cholesterol concentrations. - Chlorogenic acid significantly inhibited fatty acid synthase, while they increased fatty acid beta-oxidation - Results suggested that CGA can improve body weight, lipid metabolism, and obesity-related hormones levels (5) Omega 3’s: - Omega-3 fatty acids may suppress appetite because of their effect on leptin levels. - Leptin is a hormone that affects appetite. When omega-3 fatty acid consumption is increased, leptin decreases, found a 2002 study published by the American Journal of Physiology - Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because your body can't make them. You have to get them from food or supplements. References: 1) 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) | University of Maryland Medical Center. (n.d.).

Chocolate: Benefits vs. Dangers | Is Theobromine Safe? - Thomas DeLauer: Learn the OTHER benefit of Chocolate! I'll teach you more about the foods that work for you at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Click to learn more. Theobromine and Fat Loss: Theobromine is the major alkaloid in cocoa, giving cocoa its bitter taste. Theobromine is the substance responsible for chocolate being toxic to dogs and some other mammals. Humans process theobromine differently, leading the many health benefits rather than toxicity. Cocoa consumption began in the Americas and spread to Europe in the 16th century. It was traditionally used both as food and medicine. Theobromine concentrations are higher in dark chocolate than milk chocolate or white chocolate. Cocoa nibs and cocoa powder have the highest concentrations. It is a substance known as a methylxanthine derivative. Caffeine is also a methylxanthine → caffeine and theobromine are similar in molecular structure. Our affinity for chocolate has to do with the combination of caffeine and theobromine. -A study had participants consume a drink with a capsule of either placebo or a caffeine/theobromine combination similar to that of chocolate. Those that consumed the drink with the caffeine and theobromine reported liking the beverage more. Just like caffeine, theobromine is a stimulant. This is due to their effect on adenosine receptors. These compounds act as adenosine antagonists, taking the place of adenosine on receptors in the brain. Theobromine is about 1/10th as effective as caffeine in the body, so it takes much more theobromine to feel its effects than caffeine. The half-life, the amount of time that it takes for your body to process ½ of a substance, of theobromine is about 6 to 10 hours, longer than that of caffeine. This means that theobromine stays around in the body for a long period of time after consumption. Theobromine is an anti-inflammatory and reduces oxidative stress in the body. It has been found to help with asthma symptoms. Theobromine has been found to increase HDL cholesterol and decrease LDL cholesterol. Theobromine has been found to affect DNA and RNA structure. The full impacts of this are not yet known, but it is hypothesized that this can inhibit or induce gene expression. -Caffeine has been found to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. -Thus theobromine may be effective to treat some diseases and could be used in future drugs Theobromine and Weight Loss: Theobromine may help to speed up weight loss, but not as noticeably as caffeine. As a mild stimulant this can give you the energy to go for a run or hit the gym. As a diuretic, this can help you to empty the contents of your stomach. Also may act to suppress appetite, reducing our likelihood to consume unhealthy foods at moments of temptation. The quantity of theobromine found in chocolate and other foods, such as coffee, are unlikely to be high enough for you to notice any weight loss impact through the above means, especially when compared to caffeine in coffee. However, there are so many other health benefits, and the more all-around healthy you are the more able you are to live an active lifestyle. One of these has to do with insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is the most likely way that theobromine may aid in weight loss. A 2005 study had volunteers consume dark chocolate for 15 days, and then white chocolate. Insulin sensitivity was increased during the dark chocolate period. Improved insulin sensitivity is crucial in weight loss. Can You Have too Much? Studies have found that the positive mood effects of theobromine turn negative when too much is consumed. Dark chocolate has roughly 200 to 300 mg of theobromine per 40 grams, so a typical 50 gram dark chocolate bar can be assumed to be at about 250 to 375 mg of theobromine. One study found 700 mg of theobromine lowered blood pressure, increased how interesting a task seemed and decreased calmness. Another study found that higher levels of theobromine, from 500 mg to 1000 mg, experienced more “dislike” feelings. So, eating one dark chocolate bar will likely lead to positive mood effects, but eating two or more could lead to negative effects. References: 1.

Why is My Blood Sugar So High In The Morning
 
06:56
Get my prediabetes and diabetes type 2 management guide here to control your blood sugar better https://goo.gl/z7bR6y Morning blood sugar readings can sometimes be all over the place. Depending on what you had for dinner or what snacks you had during the evening. What time you took your medicine can play a factor as well. But if you have consistently high blood glucose readings every morning, it could be one of three reasons that we are going to discuss in this video. DAWN PHENOMENON Researchers feel the most common reason for high blood glucose levels in the morning is the dawn phenomenon. The glucose is going up from sources other than digested food. Some of it is produced by the liver from stored starch and fatty acids. Livers that produce too much glucose are one of the main ways diabetes causes high blood glucose levels. Other organs also produce small amounts of glucose. This is called “gluconeogenesis” for those of you who like the technical stuff. Organs produce glucose to keep blood glucose from going too low at night or other times of not eating. From about 2 AM to 8 AM, most people’s bodies produce hormones, including cortisol, glucagon, and epinephrine. All these hormones increase insulin resistance and tell the liver to make more glucose. The idea is to get you enough glucose to get out of bed and start the day. Everyone has a dawn phenomenon. Otherwise they’d be too weak to get breakfast. But in people without diabetes, insulin levels also increase to handle the extra glucose. People with diabetes can’t increase insulin levels that much, so their early morning blood glucose levels can rise dramatically. Experts disagree on how many people have a dawn phenomenon. Estimates range from 3% to 50% of Type 2s and from 25% to 50% of Type 1s. Is dawn phenomenon a serious problem? It can be serious. According to the American Diabetes Association, “Some people with dawn phenomenon find that their glucose continues to rise until they eat in the morning. For others, levels will settle down a few hours after waking, regardless of whether or not they eat.” According to columnist Wil Dubois, the higher your A1C, the more likely you are to have a significant dawn phenomenon. It could be that spending a number of hours each morning out of control is having a significant effect on your overall control. Some people have high glucose levels in the morning because their medicines wear off overnight. This could be true of medicines like insulin, and metformin. If you are taking any long-acting medicine, consider asking your doctor about changing meds, doses, or times THE SOMOGYI EFFECT In some cases, medicine can be too strong. If your glucose goes too low in the night, you could have a rebound high in the morning. This is called the Somogyi effect. If you are waking up high and are suffering pounding headaches, or find your sheets sweat-soaked, the odds are you are having lows in your sleep…You need to visit with your doctor about taking less meds. According to Dubois, the new insulins are much less likely to cause a Somogyi reaction. But because of cost, people are going back to NPH insulin. NPH is cheaper, shorter-acting, and more likely to cause a low, leading to a rebound high in the morning. WANING INSULIN If you take insulin and have been experiencing high blood sugar in the morning, your insulin may simply be wearing off too soon. If this is the case, your doctor can adjust your dosage or change what time you are taking the insulin to prevent high glucose levels. Pinpointing the Cause for Effective Treatment If your blood sugar is fairly even when you go to bed and at 3 a.m. but is higher in the morning, you are probably experiencing dawn phenomenon. If your blood sugar is low at 3 a.m., but high in the morning, you probably suffer from the Somogyi effect. If your blood sugar is elevated at 3 a.m. and then higher still in the morning, you probably have waning insulin. Even if you’ve identified the reason behind your high morning number, never attempt to correct it on your own. Instead, talk with your doctor. Together, you can find a treatment plan that gets you back on track in the morning. How can this situation be corrected? Once you and your doctor determine how your blood sugar levels are behaving at night, he or she can advise you about the changes you need to make to better control them. -Changing the time you take the long-acting insulin in the evening so that its peak action occurs when your blood sugars start rising -Changing the type of insulin you take in the evening -Taking extra insulin overnight -Eating a lighter breakfast -Increasing your morning dose of insulin -Switching to an insulin pump, which can be programmed to release additional insulin in the morning

The Importance of Sleep: 8 Scientific Health Benefits of Sleep + Sleeping Tips

To support our channel and level up your health, check out: Our Fast Weight Loss Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/the-science-of-fast-weight-loss-course Our Better Health Basics Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/food-health-happiness Today we’re going to talk about the importance of sleep and the 10 scientific health benefits of sleep. We’re also going to finish with some proven sleeping tips that will ensure you get a full night’s rest and make sure you get the right amount. 8 health benefits of sleep: 1. Not getting enough sleep is linked to fat 2. Getting the right amount of sleep improves your hormones 3. Good sleep Improves your immune system Another health benefit of sleep is helping you fight off being sick. In a recent study, people who sleep less than 7 hours a night are 3x more likely to develop a cold than those sleeping 8 hours or more. 4. Sleep Helps to Improve Learning In a Swiss University study two groups were introduced to a new language, one right before bed and one during the daytime. The one’s who slept immediately after leaning new material learned the language quicker than those learning in the day time. So studying before bed seems to be a good idea. 5. Sleep lowers the risk of developing depression In a study of twins researchers found that short sleep increased the genetic risk of developing depression. In fact, it has been estimated that 90% of patients with depression also suffer from some from of sleep apnea. 6. People who get more sleep naturally eat less When you don’t get enough sleep, the fluctuations of hormones cause greater cravings and worse appetite control. So if you’re someone who’s trying to lose weight but just can’t stay away from the late night snacks, getting more sleep is something that can probably help. 7. Sleep helps us empathize with others Another strange health benefit of sleep is a better understanding of social cues. One study found that those who are sleep deprived lose the ability to properly recognize expressions of anger and happiness in the faces of others. 8. Sleep improves athletic performance In a study of basketball players, a better night’s rest improved the players reaction times, speed, and, accuracy. In another study of over 2800 women, lack of sleep made them more sluggish and made it difficult to perform tasks that required coordination. Now that we’ve discussed the health benefits of sleep, lets talk about how to get a better nights rest. Here are 5 Sleeping Tips everyone needs to know Sleeping tip #1. Use Black out curtains and duct tape to black out your room Melatonin, also know as the sleep hormone, is raised when the sun goes down to indicate to our bodies that it’s time to rest. The problem is street lights, outlets, and all sorts of other unnatural lights confuse this hormone and trick it into thinking it’s still daytime. Do a complete blackout of your room and you will notice a BIG difference in both quality of sleep and ability to get to sleep. Also, computer screens and phone screens confuse melatonin as well. There are nighttime modes on these devices, but it’s always best to just not use them 1 hour before bedtime. Sleeping tip #2. Have A Routine Humans are habitual creatures and creating a systematic routine will improve sleep. Something as simple as brushing your teeth, reading a book for 15 minutes and immediately going to bed is a habit you can build to make your sleep almost automatic at night. Sleeping tip #3. Use Your Bed for Nothing but Sleep and the occasional… physical activity. Goes with the habit thing, but the moment you hit the bed you want the body to recognize that it’s time to fall asleep. So try not to work on your bed or spend anytime on it when you’re not resting. Sleeping tip #4. Use a pillow between or underneath your legs. This will help to maintain the alignment of your back and improve your posture over time. It will also help those of you suffering with lower back pain. There is not perfect way to sleep, but on your back is probably best as it helps to maintain the alignment of your neck and spine. Sleeping tip #5. Napping is great. A short 20-30 minute nap lowers cortisol levels and is very healthy for the body. So bring back a little bit of your childhood and do a quick cat nap if feeling tired mid day! Our last point is that the right amount of time for optimal sleep benefits is 7-9 hours per night. No less than 7 and no more than 9 is the perfect amount.

What If You Stopped Eating Sugar for 1 Week
 
08:46
Eating too much sugar can seriously affect your health. What will happen to your heart, brain, and skin, if you quit sugar at least for a week? Eating too much sugar leads to weight gain, sharp mood swings, and even addiction. Some nutritionists consider sugar to be even more dangerous than fat, but we still don’t pay enough attention to the amount of sugar we consume every day. What will happen to you if you quit sugar at least for a week? Well, the changes are going to be incredible! We're going to tell you how you'll feel if you stop eating donuts and if it’s even worth the effort. You'll overcome a serious addiction 0:55 Your breath will be better 1:33 You’ll increase your brain power 2:13 You’ll be less likely to have Alzheimer’s disease 2:44 Your skin will look younger 3:11 Your heart will thank you 3:36 You’ll have less bad cholesterol 4:09 You’ll have a much better mood 4:29 You'll finally get a good sleep 5:04 You’ll be less likely to have diabetes 5:35 You'll lower the risk of having cancer 6:03 Your eyesight will be sharper 6:23 You'll lose weight fast 6:50 You'll see your doctor less often 7:22 You'll save a crazy amount of money 7:57 SUMMARY - Studies show (and that might sound shocking) that sugar is actually more addictive than cocaine! Lab rats were given cocaine until they became addicted to it. - Sugar is often linked to the development of numerous lung conditions, so lowering sugar intake results in weakening asthma symptoms. - Studies have shown that sugar hinders such activities as learning and memorizing things. - A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that giving up sugar may result in your acne disappearing. Sugar is inflammatory, and inflammation is known as a cause of acne. - People who eat too much sugar have a much higher risk of having a heart attack. - High sugar intake raises levels of bad cholesterol and blood fats that can clog your blood vessels, leading to severe heart conditions that can be a huge threat to your life. - Studies found that people, who eat very little sugar or none at all, are rarely diagnosed with depression. - You will be very active throughout the day and ready to sleep when the bedtime comes. Your day/night cycle will be more naturally balanced. - When you eat too much glucose, high insulin resistance develops. It means that sugar can’t get into your cells and can get stuck in the bloodstream. - Pancreatic cancer is often linked to high sugar intake. However, the results of the studies haven’t been entirely consistent; it’s better not to take the risk on this one. - Sugar also affects the health of your eyes. Fluctuations of insulin and glucose levels lead to vessel damage and decrease blood supply to your eyes. - When you eat a lot of sugar, especially fructose, you are very likely to overeat. The pancreas is forced to produce more insulin, so other hormones that regulate metabolism, digestion, and weight are neglected. - Your immune system is seriously affected by consumption of large amounts of sugar. You are protected from bacteria and viruses by white blood cells. - Stop eating sugar and spending money on doctors, dentists, those expensive acne concealers and sweet food and drinks that only harm you.
