Vit C – Our Secret weapon to Stress? standard

Studies have shown that per 70kg body weight, unstressed rats produce 1.8-4.9g vitamin C per day, compared with stressed rats which produced 15.2g. In a study of healthy men and women, oral supplementation of 2000mg vitamin C for 3 weeks, reduced histamine levels by 40%.10 High dose vitamin C may be effective in reducing total histamine levels. We also know from studies that stress causes an increase in the need for certain other nutrients, Magnesium and B vitamins. You can’t always turn down the stress but you can turn down the symptoms of stress such as anxiety, fatigue, aches and pains, and grumpiness by making sure you have enough of the nutrients your body needs to deal with the stress.

I read this article in I think it was The rainbow network years ago and it was so well written I have kept it as a handout for those who were interested too. Here it is for you… A NEW DISEASE, A NEW MARKETING OPPORTUNITY Osteoporosis is big news-and big business-these days. As a disease, it emerged out of obscurity only two decades ago to become a concern for women throughout the industrialised world. Advertising campaigns in the media and fact sheets in doctors’ waiting rooms and pharmacies continually warn women of the dangers of disappearing bone mass. The marketing hype announces that one woman in two over the age of 60 is likely to crumble from an osteoporotic fracture ...

Rickets which is a weakening of bone structure is an example of severe D deficiency, however we test and find Vitamin D deficiency in my patients who have problems with their immune system, infections and colds, fatigue, headaches, a history of cancer, low mood, poor sleep and the list goes on.

Good evidence exists that many ...

Kreb’s cycles are a part of your cell’s battery packs and they make energy to fuel your body. When the Kreb’s cycle is blocked, you can’t produce energy very well so your extremely clever body then decides that if you are low on energy you better make some more. So, ...

Why Adrenal Treatment During Menopause standard

The Adrenal glands play the most important role in helping the body transition into menopause, and maintain quality of life after menopause. During and after the menopause transition, the adrenal glands are recruited to increase their contributions of hormones to make up for decreased contribution by the ovaries. Addressing the underlying cause will relieve the additional stress on the adrenal glands, and allow it to assist the body during and after the menopause. Adrenal hormones are important to healthy menstruation, and stress is known to affect the menstrual cycle. The adrenal glands are the only source of testosterone in women, and after the menopause are the only source of the female hormones, estrogen and progesterone. These and other hormones play ...
