There is a push to make DHEA illegal. If you have a low DHEA level, you are probably headed towards health problems. Therefore, you must address the low level by establishing a healthy lifestyle. DHEA supports healthy brain function, helps with arthritis, and boosts the immune system. Find out more in this video! Please leave a comment below this video and we will be sure to respond!

It's free and very enlightening. CORTISOL Low cortisol is when one has either a stress event (including losses). This could trigger alopecia (an autoimmune condition). It could be both high and low cortisol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66ujydlh40A HIGH ESTROGEN This can also effect the hair by lowering the thyroid function. High estrogen blocks thyroid function. This could happen during the pregnancy when estrogen is spiked. However, right after the pregnancy, the estrogen drops and this can increase androgen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZDUoRjQWyw INSULIN Increase insulin can trigger the increase of androgens, which turns into DHT effecting the hair. High androgens can cause PCOD, but its high insulin that causing that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTjDi2ZO0n8 MENOPAUSE At menopause, estrogen drops, but not as low as testosterone, so the ratio makes testosterone higher; this converts to DHT, thus effecting hair. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4uojf4y72Q THYROID Having a slow thyroid can effect hair. But most thyroid issues are secondary which means it's really not a thyroid problem itself. If the gallbladder is a problem, then T4 will not convert to T3. Also if estrogen is high, the thyroid will be inhibited. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3z9pNBFnpM TESTOSTERONE If testosterone is high, it can turn into DHT thereby blocking the growth of hair. Or, the lower amounts of estrogen can make the testosterone appear to be too high.

Hormones are secreted by various glands and organs including your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and pancreas. The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if one or more is even slightly imbalanced it can cause widespread, major health problems.

Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
 
31:07
http://drhedberg.com/natural-hormone-replacement-therapy-for-women/ Learn everything you need to know about Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women including all of your options, symptoms, best testing methods and much, much more. Dr. Nikolas Hedberg discusses natural hormone replacement for women. Dr. Hedberg is a board-certified naturopathic physician and is board-certified in nutrition. He works with many women with hormone imbalances, thyroid problems, adrenal gland imbalances, and what we would call sex or reproductive hormone imbalances. This video also discusses hormone replacement therapy. This is a popular topic. Dr. Hedberg also discusses Adrenal imbalances, which are extremely common in our society today because we’re overworked and overstressed. If you do have low progesterone, progesterone replacement can provide some good benefits, someone may notice their mood gets better. Then these issues with estrogen, like uterine fibroids, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast, where there is usually too much estrogen, progesterone will help to balance that. Progesterone does facilitate the thyroid, so some women will notice improvements in their metabolism, their body temperature, better sleep. That’s because progesterone has an overall calming effect on the brain, on the nervous system. It helps to calm women down. That’s why a lot of women like to take it at night to sleep better, better blood sugar metabolism. It really helps with many of the menopausal symptoms, especially hot flashes. It’s a natural diuretic, so if you’re holding a lot of water, it can help there. Progesterone really helps to build bone. Estrogen helps to maintain the quality of the bone and testosterone makes sure that the bone is very rigid and very hard. So you need a healthy balance of all three of those. Then, if you’re still cycling, progesterone can help with PMS. Your body makes actually three different types of estrogen, estrone, estrodiol and estriol. This is about the actual percentages that your body makes. Premarin is primarily estrone. Estrace is 100% estradiol. Note For the Hearing Impaired: This video contains accurate Closed Captions.

How to Naturally Balance Your Hormones with Essential Oils
 
04:16
For more info: https://draxe.com/10-ways-balance-hormones-naturally/?utm_campaign=Youtube-May-2015&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=hormones In today’s video I’m going to talk about how essential oils can naturally balance your hormones. I will talk about specific oils that can benefit progesterone balance, estrogen balance, thyroid issues, and naturally boost low testosterone. The three main essential oils we will cover are clary sage, thyme oil, and sandalwood oil. Clary sage’s biggest benefit is that it helps balance estrogen in the body. If you have infertility or estrogen-induced cancer, clary sage helps balance your estrogen levels and hormones. Thyme oil benefits the body by producing more progesterone, which helps balance the body’s hormones. Finally, sandalwood oil helps balance testosterone levels in both men and women. A few additional essential oils that help balance the body’s hormones are rose oil, lavender oil, and chamomile oil. And for thyroid issues, one of the best essential oils to use is frankincense oil.

Pine Pollen: Nature's Safe Hormone Source HRT, DHEA, Natural T
 
04:44
http://www.Markusnews.com Forget unsafe steroids and hormone replacement therapy and testosterone shots- nature has something much better- pine pollen. A complete protein and energy source, pine pollen is a true superfood. Pine pollen is a great all natural hormone source for those not wanting to take steroids. Great for aldosterone, DHEA, libido, sex drive, SOD (superoxide dismutase) so obviously its good for natural bodybuilders, vegan, muscle, energy for the gym, working out, a natural source of testosterone, helps with collagen, elastin, great for breast health and getting rid of xenoetstrogens and estrogen. You could say this was nature's natural steroid. http://www.MarkusNews.com Pine Pollen is very nutritionally dense. It contains over 200 natural nutrients, minerals and vitamins. It can be used for long periods of time without any toxic effects. One of the attributes of this tonic medicine is that it is adaptogenic meaning that it will cater to exactly what your body needs and treat areas that are in distress. Pine pollen is a whole food and has many medicinal properties and effects most of the entire body. It will increase your energy level and your mental integrity. Whatever nutritional regimen you follow, you will quickly discover that Pine Pollen is a super food and one that will greatly benefit you. Pine Pollen “a great anti-aging substance” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3345248/ Abstract The present paper was designed to investigate the effect of pine pollen against aging in human diploid fibroblast 2BS cells and in an accelerated aging model, which was established by subcutaneous injections with D-galactose daily for 8 weeks in C57BL/6J mice. Pine pollen, 1 mg/mL and 2 mg/mL, is proved to delay the replicative senescence of 2BS cells as evidenced by enhanced cell proliferation, decreased SA-β-Gal activity, and reversed expression of senescence-associated molecular markers, such as p53, p21Waf1, p16INK4a, PTEN, and p27Kip1 in late PD cells. Besides, pine pollen reversed D-galactose-induced aging effects in neural activity and inflammatory cytokine levels, as indicated by improved memory latency time and reduced error rate in step-down test and decreased concentrations of IL-6 and TNF-α in model mice. Pine pollen inhibited D-galactose-induced increment of AGEs levels thus reversed the aging phenotypes in model mice. Furthermore, the declined antioxidant activity was obviously reversed upon pine pollen treatment, which may account for its inhibitory effect on nonenzymatic glycation, NEG, in vivo. Our finding presents pine pollen as an attractive agent with potential to retard aging and attenuate age-related diseases in humans. Probably the most crucial antioxidant the body makes https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3671475 Abstract Unconjugated vitamin D and its metabolites were investigated in the pollen of Pinus nigra Ar. and Pinus sylvestris L. by TLC, HPLC and competitive radiochemical determination of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol, 25-OHD3. It was found that vitamin D, D2, D3, was present in the pollen in amounts about 2 micrograms/10 g and 25-OHD3, 24,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol, 24,25- OH, 2D3, and 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol, 1,25-OH, 2D3, between 0.1 and 3 micrograms/10 g of pollen, dependent on pollen species and methods. Will restore healthy levels of testosterone http://en.cnki.com.cn/Article_en/CJFDTOTAL-DBLY200709030.htm The recent research on chemical components and pharmacological function of pine pollen is summarized.Results show that pine pollen contains protein,aminophenol,mineral,vitamin,enzyme,coenzyme,fattiness,flavone,nucleic acid,monosaccharides,amylose and phospholipid,etc.Furthermore,pine pollen has many pharmacological functions,including anti tiredness,anti-senility,liver protection,improvement of cardio-cerebral blood vessel and sexual function,and so on.Meanwhile,the exploitation and utilization prospects are given. It helps regenerate the body’s …tissues..bones.. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19148883 These results suggest that the pine pollen might be beneficial in the treatment of chronic inflammatory disorders. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19107823 https://www.hindawi.com/journals/omcl/2012/750963/abs/ http://www.naturalnews.com/Infographic-Benefits-of-Pine-Pollen.html http://www.consciouslifestylemag.com/about-us-2/ Our Raw Vegan Health Cookbook: http://www.HealthyCookbook.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/markus.rothkranz.7 Videos and articles: http://www.MarkusNews.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/markusandcara/ Markus Rothkranz website: http://www.MarkusRothkranz.com Markus Products: http://www.HealAnything.com Markus Products: http://www.MarkusProducts.com German website: http://www.MarkusRothkranz.de

PCOS-related acne and your diet
 
17:17
It's my birthday. I figured the timing was perfect to show you what two days of going out with friends -- eating and drinking the wrong stuff in moderate amounts -- has done to my face. This video is NOT a diet, so aside from some big generalizations, you won't get much in the way of specific diet advice. Every BODY is different. You have to do what's best for yours! I talk about diet, but do not advocate any specific dietary plan. I think that most the people who do that on YouTube are probably only doing so for personal or monetary gain. Instead, please talk to a medical professional about what kind of diet will work best for you on your PCOS journey. My best advice in this piece is the following... 1) Go see a hormone doctor (endocrinologist) if you suspect you have PCOS or any other hormone disorder. 2) Watch your carbs. Try to get them from fruit or veg instead of grain products, sugary drinks, or alcoholic beverages. Women with PCOS have a difficult time with refined carbohydrates and they can cause lots of problems...even if you only use them as treats a few times a year! I generally do not eat for weight loss. Instead, I eat what makes me feel good! I focus on healthy proteins and fats and I get most of my carbohydrates from the fruits, veggies, and legumes in my diet. I mostly avoid grains and grain products...except on my birthday! LOL I am willing to live with some zits a couple times a year so I can live a little and feel "normal". I'm not a fitness guru and I don't want to live a life that's 100% fun-food free. I'm more of an "everything in moderation" kind of gal. Plus, I usually feel like I'm having a "sugar hangover", by the end of my fun, so I am pretty happy to go back to my relatively clean diet afterwards. This video message is more for the younger girls with PCOS who haven't had the self-revelation that diet can cause some of these reactions in their hormonally hyper-sensitive bodies. If this is you, please do yourself a favor: try the two tips above. They can be real game changers for you, your skin, your weight, and any hair loss you're experiencing as a result of your PCOS. (A good endocrinologist can work with your OB/GYN to help you in your TTC efforts, too!) One more thing: I touched on this briefly in the video, but it's a very common issue with women with PCOS to have symptoms of hypothyroidism, as well. What's more perplexing is that most of these women test in the "subclinical" range on their thyroid screenings, meaning that the results read in the normal range in spite of symptoms. Consider adding an iodine supplement to your vitamin regiment (though be sure to ask your endocrinologist, first). This is a cheap way to help your thyroid and can give relief to some women with this set of issues. Medications I am on, for what it's worth and because it might be helpful reference for others: PCOS Related: - Metformin (Glucophage) 500 mg ER x4 / day: which, if I'm not mistaken, is the maintenance dose for T2D, but since I don't have that, it is being prescribed "off-label", but this is common for PCOS - Spironolactone (Aldactone) 50 mg 1x: this is a common androgen blocker; it is a cheap diuretic commonly used to treat high blood pressure, but is commonly prescribed "off-label" to block excess androgens in women with PCOS and some transitioning trans women, as I mentioned in the video - 120 µg of etonogestrel (a progestin); I did ultimately decide to disclose this here, in case anyone was curious or wanted to compare my treatment to theirs; please just remember that this is VERY individual and that you should see your doctor before you mess with your hormones! - 15 µg of ethinyl estradiol (an estrogen); You can probably tell this is a lower dose than what a trans woman would take...and this is because I am cis-female and do make some of my own hormone in modest amounts. :) - DHEA supplement from my doctor; this is the building block of many sex hormones, such as androgens and estrogens. In this case, my doctor has me taking this so I will (hopefully) make more of my own girly hormones. Non-PCOS related: - Zyrtek - Vitamin D - Iodine - Coconut Oil That's all, folks! :D PS: My hair in this video is Brittaney by Envy in Creamed Coffee: http://cysterwigs.com/products/brittaney-by-envy-alan-eaton
