Rachael Ray – What Happened?

December 8th, 2016|Categories: Uncategorized, Excessive Adrenaline, Weight|

Many people are aware that Rachael Ray has been struggling with weight and other health issues. She is best known as a celebrity chef and daytime talk show host. She is 48 years old and is having symptoms suggestive of the onset of menopause. Evidently she has gone to numerous doctors seeking relief of her issues. These issues include, in addition to excess weight, night sweats and migraines. In reality, Rachael Ray is a classic example of what is wrong with our medical system. I do not know this woman, but I have had many patients with her identical [...]

The “New” Morning Sickness Pill

August 12th, 2015|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Excessive Adrenaline|Tags: |

Many people probably remember thalidomide which was a popular sleeping pill prescribed for pregnant women starting in the 1940's because it was touted to help with morning sickness. It was eventually removed from the market after it had resulted in thousands of babies being born with skeletal abnormalities such as only having hands  without arms attached to their shoulders (a condition called focomyelia). In 1956, a drug was introduced called Bendectin, and again used for morning sickness. It was a combination of two drugs, doxylamine and pyridoxine. Unfortunately, this drug resulted in many, if not more, of the same side effects [...]

Hormonal Weight Loss

May 26th, 2015|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Excessive Adrenaline, Weight|Tags: , , , |

Hormones control every system in the body. Therefore, it stands to reason that they would have a strong influence on weight problems. Along these lines, I will discuss a number of hormones with regard to how they influence weight. This topic is important, because if the underlying cause of why the body is producing fat is not dealt with then it will always be a problem. Those people who diet and exercise and still fail to lose weight can be well-assured that they are dealing with a hormone issue. Those people who are successful in losing weight and then [...]

Adrenal Fatigue – Or Is It?

February 25th, 2015|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Excessive Adrenaline, Adrenal Fatigue|

[The following is another chapter borrowed from my latest book: Adrenaline Dominance] Adrenal fatigue is a diagnosis used mostly in alternative medicine, usually among naturopathic physicians. The diagnosis is based on the theory that the adrenal gland, if under functioning, can fail to produce sufficient quantities of cortisol. Treatment often involves prescribing cortisol in addition to addressing diet, timing of eating, and amount of rest. I have two concerns about this diagnosis and its treatment. First, adrenal fatigue may actually be adrenaline dominance, a condition of adrenal over functioning rather than under functioning. Second, prescribing cortisol for a condition possibly already associated with [...]

Ferguson, Missouri: What Happened?

August 18th, 2014|Categories: Excessive Adrenaline|

Those of you who have followed my blogs should know that I have my own unique way of interpreting events. So please allow me to provide my take on how a young man wound up getting shot six times, including two bullets in the head. In spite of all the media hype and the feelings of the community, I do not feel that this had anything to do with the fact that the young man was black. Instead, I strongly believe that the killing of Michael Brown was related to the release of excess adrenaline. Please keep in mind [...]

Robin Williams: Another Victim of Excess Adrenaline

August 11th, 2014|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Excessive Adrenaline, Wellness|Tags: , , |

It is very frustrating to know that there are thousands of people working in Hollywood who are suffering with problems related to excess adrenaline. This is a hormone that doctors, including psychiatrists, never talk about. Creative people are the one's with the most adrenaline. They suffer for years with adrenaline-induced depression, anxiety, insomnia, alcoholism, drug addiction, rage issues, and so on. They have associated issues with RLS, grinding their teeth, weight gain, IBS, fatigue, and fibromyalgia. How many more deaths will it have to take before creative people become aware that they are dealing with a lifelong problem that often can be [...]

“Adrenaline Dominance”

July 13th, 2014|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Excessive Adrenaline, ADHD/ADD, Wellness|Tags: , , , |

I am pleased to be able to report that my latest book has just been released. It is appropriately named "Adrenaline Dominance", and it should be of interest to many of the readers of my blogs. I say this because the most commonly viewed blogs have been those about conditions associated with excess adrenaline. These include blogs about ADHD, anger, fibromyalgia, insomnia, RLS, interstitial cystitis, drug and alcohol addiction, hormonal weight issues, road rage, IBS, autism, bipolar disorders, PMDD, and even bed-wetting in children. My new book talks about all these conditions and more. It addresses the reason why people [...]

Progesterone: The Anti-aging Hormone

February 18th, 2014|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Breast Cancer Prevention, Excessive Adrenaline, ADHD/ADD, Wellness|Tags: , , , , |

The following is a synopsis of many of the benefits of progesterone, some of which directly contribute to longevity in both sexes. Those benefits that may not promote a longer lifespan can instead lead to a significant improvement in the quality of life. Anti-estrogen Progesterone is best known as the hormone that blocks the detrimental effects of estrogen. In this regard, it helps prevent menstrual cramps, breast tenderness, and PMS in those women who are menstruating. In addition, it eliminates other problems caused by estrogen including asthma and migraine headaches, morning sickness, and, from the standpoint of prolonging life, [...]

The Mis-Treatment of Addiction: Philip Seymour Hoffman

February 5th, 2014|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Excessive Adrenaline|Tags: , , , |

Philip Hoffman died of a heroin overdose at the age of 46. For most of his adult life he acknowledged his problem with addiction, and on multiple occasions he entered various rehab programs to help him deal with this illness. It can certainly be postulated that these programs dealing with alcohol and drug abuse failed to help him for one simple reason: they did not approach his problem from the underlying cause of why he needed drugs and alcohol. Of course, not treating the cause of illness is an inherent part of our medical system. It is a system [...]

The Over-active Bladder

February 13th, 2013|Categories: Excessive Adrenaline|Tags: , , , , , , |

It never ceases to amaze me that our medical system absolutely refuses to acknowledge that the most logical approach to treating a problem is to treat the cause of the problem. They have been promoting the use of using botulinum toxin ( Botox) to treat migraines, and now they are using it to treat women who have a problem with urinary urgency - i.e. those women who when they have to go, they have to go. Interestingly, both urgency, commonly referred to as an over-active bladder, and migraine headaches, often have the same cause. Readers of my blogs already know [...]

My Take on Newtown

December 19th, 2012|Categories: Excessive Adrenaline, ADHD/ADD, Children and Teens|Tags: , , |

I suspect that the final, definitive answer for the Newtown tragedy will not be forthcoming. The only person who might have provided some insight was the mother. Unfortunately, she was the first one who was killed. So what I will be proposing is pure conjecture, based not on fact, but on my understanding of what has been reported about the gunman. Let me start with the fact that he evidently had some type of mental disturbance; the words autism and Asberger's have been quoted. A baby sitter from years ago mentioned he was on some type of psychoactive drugs, [...]

A License to Kill: Prescription Drug Deaths

November 11th, 2012|Categories: Hormonal Balance and Wellness, Excessive Adrenaline|Tags: , , , |

The Los Angeles Times is beginning a series of articles about the large number of people who have died from prescription drugs in the LA area. Their tally did not include drug deaths by suicide, or deaths from drug-related accidents, or from deaths by overdose where people bought prescription drugs on the street.   Right now, prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in this country. Another way of stating this, is that doctors are a major factor in death statistics.   The LA Times article pointed out that the California Medical Review Board has been oblivious to [...]
