New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Hormones Out of Balance….This is Why!?
okay so today we’re going to talk about hormone and balance okay now just to make this very complex subject very simple the endocrine system as a whole is basically the superior communication system it has various glands that make and send hormones through the blood and hormones our communications so they’re sent received and they transmit back in kind of a circuit there it’s called feedback loops so that when the information gets back then the gland can stop sending that message if there’s any type of problem along this pathway hormones can actually go up or go down so we call that hyper or hypo so if it’s too much in the thyroid it’d be a condition called hyperthyroidism if it’s too low it’ll be hypothyroid and it happens with pretty much all the different hormones okay they’re very sensitive to the environment especially chemicals chemicals in our food medications pesticides insecticides toxins because a lot of those chemicals in the environment are called endocrine disruptors and that’s because the glands and hormones a lot of them are made from fat and so a lot of chemicals are fat soluble so they kind of get stuck in there the receptors and they block it and they disrupt the normal flow of communication in the body also there are other things especially like with the adrenal hormones that are very sensitive to stresses emotional stresses losses physical stresses trauma surgery that can alter the adrenal gland as far as estrogen goes the ovary is very sensitive to things in our food especially hormones so if you’re consuming commercial dairy for example that has hormones and has other chemicals growth hormones it can be greatly influenced also birth control pills hormonal replacement therapy back in the 50s there was something called des diethylstilbestrol and that was a very powerful estrogen that was supposed to prevent miscarriages until they found out 30 years later it causes miscarriages okay so create a lot of problems of they kept it on the market for ten years later and for giving it to animals and of course that you were eating the animals so if you were born before 1979 you probably were exposed to it and it creates a lot of problems with our own body GMO foods has the herbicide called glyphosate which also creates a lot of problems within our endocrine system as well when you go through menopause you have this backup organ to the ovaries which is the adrenal glands and if the adrenal glands are not functioning if they’re weak and if they’re stressed if they’re fatigued going through menopause then it can’t act as a backup to the ovaries because the adrenal glands make the same hormones in the ovaries and they’re meant to back it up not in the same amounts that you actually have when you’re not in menopause but the fact is if that backup does not occur then you get symptoms of deficiencies or sometimes even excess amounts of hormones because estrogen works with progesterone so I don’t wanna get into that complexity but I just want to let you know there’s a lot of things that can interfere with the gland and so when dealing with either a hyper or hypo hormone a lot of times that you can get lost in the forest you have to take a bird’s-eye view and look at the whole scene and I recommend support the gland not the hormone because the hormone is just a communication it does what the gland tells it to do so a lot of people kind of ignore the gland itself and they don’t actually support like the adrenal gland for example they’re trying to manipulate the end product down here in the chain of events the thyroid is usually secondary to other things because you have the situation where the thyroid produces hormones but they’re inactive they’re t4 they don’t really do anything unless they’re activated through the liver and gallbladder and the kidney so 80% of thyroid hormone t4 it has to be converted into an active form t3 through that those two things mainly the liver and gallbladder but about 20% through the kidney so if you have a fatty liver or a cirrhosis of the litter or inflammatory State of the liver hepatitis or you a gallbladder or you’re missing bile or if you have any problem in that area boom tharra problem hypo also if you have too much estrogen okay say you have a hyper estrogen situation that could actually inhibit the thyroid hormone or you’re taking birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy or consuming a lot of soy which can mimic estrogen that can inhibit thyroid function if you have Hashimoto’s which is really not a classic thyroid problem it’s an autoimmune it’s an immune problem that just so happens to be attacking a thyroid that’s a completely different situation you have networks of antioxidants that is made by your body and also you can take them from get them from the food and so you have this constant battle of your own cells killing off microbes making things to kill off microbes and foreign pathogens and so those are like hydrogen peroxide for example that would be one of them your body makes it to kill off these microbes well if there’s a breakdown in the antioxidant system of your body and maybe you’re not consuming enough from the diet as well that alone can cause a buildup of hydrogen peroxide and that can damage your thyroid and in which case you have to restore that system again to actually kind of counter that now I have individual videos on each thing so you can look that up and I’m just kind of giving you an overview of what can happen but so it’s really rare to have a primary thyroid it’s usually secondary from something else okay when you go to the doctor always dig in and find out what causes the problem ask them like what could be underneath this don’t just buy well things just happen for no reason and you just have to be very unlucky try to find out what causes it especially if they want to treat it because a lot of times they treat it they treat a secondary problem and they leave the primary problem alone they don’t look at it and then you never get better all right let’s get to testosterone and I’m gonna mainly focus on females for this okay what you need to know about testosterone is that if a woman has too much testosterone and we’re going to call it androgen many times that can come from not necessarily being exposed to in urgence but basically having too much insulin okay it’s more dietary from too many carbs or too too much frequent eating so you might think well wow I’m like am I getting antigen from the from the outside from something no no it’s being converted from another hormone so that’s what makes things very confusing the other thing you need to know is that your adrenal glands in addition to the ovary makes testosterone so if you have a hyperactive adrenal gland from some reason that alone could spike your androgens as well okay so now let’s take it back to cortisol let’s just kind of cover if you have too much cortisol you’re gonna get belly fat allergies diabetes because high cortisol breaks down protein your own body and your body will start making more sugar as well and you’re gonna basically either turn your own muscle protein into sugar or your liver is gonna make more sugar because cortisol is called a glucocorticoid it’s a hormone that makes glucose so this alone can spike insulin you can become diabetic just from having high cortisol or even taking prednisone which is a medication of a synthetic version of cortisol racing mind where you’re thinking analyzing things 24/7 that happens and eventually you start having memory loss when that happens so it keeps you kind of in a flight or fight mode high blood pressure high cholesterol probably from the chain reaction from the high insulin and then we have low vitamin D levels how many people have low vitamin D I mean it’s like across the board round-faced or rosacea which is kind of a red cheek situation low tolerance to stress you can also have all sorts of immune problems with white blood cells but I don’t want to keep it simple alright hypo low cortisol here are the symptoms poor immune system virus is coming out of remission weight loss you start losing weight okay you might say wow that’s a great thing but it’s probably not because you’re not gonna actually be healthy it’s not the healthiest wait yeah you your skin becomes a little bit darker like you get a tan again not this is not healthy vitiligo which is those little white spots or a loss of pigment on the on the skin because cortisol does influence the melanin salt cravings you’re going to be losing a lot of salt if you don’t have enough cortisol and also enough adrenal hormones there’s other hormones involved so you’re gonna be basically taking all the salt all the time and you actually need it estrogen hypo that means low estrogen depression dry skin zero libido hot flashes night sweats poor memory insomnia vaginal dryness other than that you’re perfectly fine then we have a hyper estrogen state that’s too much we call that estrogen dominance breast tenderness would be one symptom enlarged breasts fibrocystic breasts which are cysts in the breast or cysts in the ovary and this is why sea kelp what works for that because the iodine helps to regulate and lower excess amounts of estrogen fluid retention heavy cycles okay excessive bleeding then you get anemia from that heavy cramping weight gain in lower part of your body the hips the butt in the thighs saddlebags PMS again other than that you’re good to go I would probably avoid dairy if you have any problems with the ovary it’s probably gonna help you especially if you have a fibroid for example now if you’re going through menopause and you have estrogen problems you should probably support the adrenal because that’s the backup organ with that and then if you’re on birth control pills just realize that can be a contributing factor and you really want to do organic non-gmo because of the chemicals involved so you have to eat really clean if you have this problem here now as far as the thyroid goes if you’re a hypo not enough thyroid you’re gonna be tired depressed dry skin dry hair loss of eyebrows okay associate in the outer part I don’t think I have a problem with that okay brittle hair hot flashes night sweats weight gain all over not in any location because the thyroid hormone innervates pretty much every single cell and it increases mitochondria which control the metabolism that’s why you’re gonna have a slow metabolism and that’s why you kind of gain weight everywhere cuz everything kind of sluggish constipation that’s hypo high burn too much thyroid excess sweating nervous you’re hyper hyper 8 you have these protruding eyeballs insomnia your cycle goes away and you lose weight ok now let’s talk about testosterone in women by the way hypo hair loss decreased sex drive depression fatigue and you can see fatigue is kind of a common thread with everything and this is why when people are fatigued you really have to look at the whole thing because you can be fatigued from so many things loss of just drive your get-up-and-go mojo has gone and left the building vaginal dryness weight gain okay hyper too much testosterone okay again this is probably coming from high levels of insulin or could be coming from an overactive adrenal but you can have hair loss acne deeper voice facial hair polycystic ovarian syndrome okay so I just wanted to kind of give you an overview of what can happen to the endocrine system some of the symptoms with high too much or too little of a hormone okay so now that you kind of have a summary it’s a little complex but the real important thing to do before you start diving down and taking remedies and supplements for any of this you have to get your basic eating corrected you have to clean up your eating to the point where you’re not doing any chemicals in your food that it’s not no longer toxic you eat very very healthy foods and I have a video down below of what to eat but get that in first for a while and then see if enemies are still there alright thanks for watching so I want to know about what you think about this video so please comment below and tell me what you think

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about hormone imbalance. The endocrine system is the superior communication system. It has various glands that makes and send hormones through the blood and hormones are the communications. Any type of problem along the communication pathway could cause hormones to go up(hyper) or down(hypo). Hormones are very sensitive to the environment especially chemicals, medications, pesticides, insecticides, toxins, etc. Chemicals in the environment are called endocrine disruptors. When dealing with either hypo or hyper hormone, support the gland and not the hormone.
Adrenal Hormones Sensitivity: Stress, Emotional Stress, Loses, Physical Stress, Trauma, Surgery
Estrogen: Things that are food, commercial dairy that has hormones, birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, menopause
Thyroid: 80% of the thyroid hormone (T4) has to be converted into an active form (T3) through liver, gallbladder and 20% on the kidney.
