Fatigue Treatments Diagnosis

Adrenal Fatigue: diagnosis and treatment is possible.

Adrenal glands are the keepers of physiologic balance so our body can function in a healthy manner. The hormones secreted by the Adrenal glands go to every tissue, gland and organ in the body in direct proportion to the total amount of stress the body senses. The Hypothalamus must sense the stress and signal a response through the Pituitary, but the Adrenal glands must provide the correct response for adaptation to stress. Hence they can affect everything from energy to sleep, weight, and our responses to illnesses and how fast we can recover from an illness. Even in illnesses as common as the Flu, if symptoms linger, low adrenal function must...

Adrenal Fatigue Diet Treatment Diagnosis

The Adrenal Fatigue Diet

Even in the best of times, you need food to survive and be healthy. When your adrenals respond to stress your cell metabolism speeds up, burning many times the number of nutrients normally needed. With adrenal fatigue, the cells have used up much of the body's stored nutrients, creating a nutritional void. Good quality food is the best source for replenishing these nutrients. To learn more specifically about Adrenal fatigue symptoms and dietary recommendations please refer to: Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome by Dr. James Wilson who is a leading expert in this field.I strongly urge patients to first talk to their physicians and be properly tested and diagnosed...

Natural Remedies for Depression. Altering the brain’s chemistry

Depression is one of the most frequent psychological problems encountered in medical practice. Some studies say 13 to 20 percent of American adults exhibit some depressive symptoms.1 The mortality rate among those who are depressed is four times greater than those without depression—major depression accounts for 60 percent of all suicides.2 Yet, despite this professional recognition and the fact that depression is a treatable condition, only about a third of depressed patients receive appropriate intervention.2 While the exact etiology of depression is unknown, numerous factors appear to contribute. These include genetics, life/event sensitization and biochemical changes. Family, twin and adoption studies demonstrate that predisposition toward depression can be inherited....

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, known as a "syndrome" that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis or pneumonia. As the name suggests, its paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep but it is not a readily identifiable entity like measles or a growth on the end of your finger. You may look and act relatively normal with adrenal fatigue and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet...

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in California

Just What are Bio-identical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are manufactured in the lab to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. By contrast, synthetic hormones are intentionally different. Drug companies can’t patent a bioidentical structure, so they invent synthetic hormones that are patentable (Premarin, Prempro, and Provera being the most widely used examples). Though bioidentical hormones have been around for years, most practitioners are unfamiliar with them. There are several branded versions now available for use in the kind of hormone replacement therapy typical of synthetic hormones. This is often a one-size-fits-all dosage regime. Dr. Kohani has had the greatest success with an individualized approach. She begins with laboratory...
