A Naturopathic Approach to Seasonal Allergies


After a crazy winter, most of us are all welcoming the nice weather of spring. But many allergy sufferers may not be so excited. As the trees and flowers bloom, their pollen becomes a major source of allergies, which can present symptoms like itchy eyes and throat, runny and clogged nose, and, in some cases, an annoying cough due to post-nasal drip. What Are Allergies? In simple terms, an allergy is an over-reactive response of the immune system to certain substances that are foreign to our bodies, called allergens. We acquire our allergies throughout our life, and some people are more susceptible than others. One must have at least one contact with a substance to become allergic to it. Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with an annual cost in excess of $18 billion.1 Conventional allergy treatment attempts to block the immune response, or in...

Signs & Symptoms of a Low Thyroid


The thyroid is a small gland located in the neck and is responsible for producing hormones that regulate the rate at which our cells utilize the fuel that we take in from our diet. These thyroid hormones can have a major impact on how we feel on a daily basis. A dysfunction in this gland can lead to a wide array of negative signs and symptoms.

The following are a few signs & symptoms of low thyroid production (hypothyroidism):

* weight gain
* puffy face
* depression
* decreased sexual interest
* constipation
* cold intolerance
* headaches
* cold hands and feet
* brittle nails
* swollen legs, feet, hands or abdomen
* rough dry skin
* insomnia
* menstrual irregularities
* fatigue

Thyroid hormones can have a major impact on how we feel on a daily basis.

TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is actually not a thyroid hormone but a pituitary hormone that does exactly what the name implies; it stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones.

The 2 Markers You SHOULD Look At On Your Lipid Panel Results


High cholesterol is a sign that the body's hormones are not in balance. To treat the symptom (the high blood cholesterol), most physicians will resort to statin drugs to actually poison the liver's ability to produce cholesterol....not only can this worsen hormone imbalances, but it can greatly increase the person's risk of developing other more serious diseases. Total cholesterol levels up to 300 were not considered important until there were pharmaceutical drugs available to lower the levels. In my practice I will first and foremost treat the cause of the cholesterol as a problem of nutrition and a problem of hormone imbalance. So, when looking at the results of a lipid panel I tell patients to pretty much disregard the total cholesterol and primarily look at just the following 2 markers: 1) Triglycerides – these are fats in the blood that the liver will manufacture when you take in more sugar, carbohydrates and starches...
