Isn’t it frustrating to be stuck behind a tractor on an open stretch of road? You want to go faster, but are unable to speed up.
Most of us wish our metabolism would “speed up” so we would have the energy to do the things we want to do. The thyroid gland, located in your neck, regulates your metabolism. It is also related to all of the other hormones. (Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, Cortisol, Insulin, Leptin and DHEA.)
We learned earlier that Leptin is the “Satiety Hormone” – the one responsible for telling our brain to shut the appetite off because we are full. However, Leptin is produced in the fat cells themselves, so as we accumulate fat, there is more and more Leptin trying to send this message to our brains. Our brains become “immune”, so to speak, to this message, so it gets ignored.
What is causing this over-abundance of Leptin? Rapid weight gain. What is causing that?
Here is a list that will probably contain some of your very favorite foods: Sugars and sweeteners, fried and processed foods, sodas, bread, and too much alcohol or caffeine – to name a few. Find a way to cut down on those things and help your metabolism do its job.
In this episode you will discover:
- Thyroid health: check your eyebrows!
- 40-day reset program – it does a body good!
- Move more, sit less.
- “You weren’t born with a medication deficiency.”
- Hormones – signaling molecules with a message.
Most of us are familiar with an overactive immune response and too much inflammation. It results in common conditions like allergies or arthritis. What few people understand is that hidden inflammation running amok is at the root of ALL CHRONIC ILLNESSES WE EXPERIENCE.
Conditions like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, depression, and cancer. We may feel healthy, but if this inflammation is raging inside of us, we are in trouble.
Just because you look healthy on the outside, does not mean that you ARE healthy on the inside. Common treatments such as anti-inflammatory drugs and steroids can be useful for acute problems, but they interfere with the body’s own immune response and can lead to serious and deadly side effects.
