From cholesterol in the diet and cholesterol manufactured in the liver originates many of the major hormones that fuel the human endocrine system.
Cholesterol is essential for the body's production of pregnenolone, progesterone, cortisol, DHEA, testosterone, estrone, estradiol and estriol.
Most people when asked about cholesterol simply equate it to heart disease yet they don't realize that cholesterol is actually vital for human life.
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
* decreased sexual interest
* cold intolerance
* cold hands and feet
* brittle nails
* swollen legs, feet, hands or abdomen
* rough dry skin
* menstrual irregularities
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.

In a few short weeks our kids will hopefully be going back to school and I’m sure most parents are concerned with keeping their little ones and bigger ones healthy.

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder in the United States. It primarily affects those over the age of 60 but it can also occur in people in their 40's and 50's, or even younger.

In my practice, treating osteoarthritis is a multi-step process that includes acupuncture, physical medicine, dietary modifications based upon food sensitivity testing and dietary supplementation. This month’s theme is joint health and we are offering 10% off the following joint related products.
