“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 [...]

As many of my readers understand, I would like to change healthcare in this country. In order to accomplish this, I feel that it is important that healthcare providers be given an alternative approach to how they practice medicine.  This blog is dedicated to those providers who are frustrated with the present system. The doctor practicing today can no longer afford to ignore bio-identical hormone replacement therapy(BHRT). Many patients are demanding BHRT, and if it is not provided by their health care practitioner, they will seek care elsewhere. Very often, in order to meet this demand, practitioners will attend [...]

The Health Consequences of Too Much Adrenaline

March 22nd, 2012|Categories: Hey Doc|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Hey Doc… You have referred to problems related to excess adrenaline in a number of your columns.  Why is this important and what can be done about it?                                                                                                                 -J.T. In Indian Wells- Dear J.T., Adrenaline is an extremely important hormone – it gives people energy and as a neurotransmitter it gives people intelligence.  For people that are “right-brained” (creative), adrenaline enhances their creativity and allows them to be intuitive, have premonitions or déjà-vu experiences – i.e. to have the same powers as clairvoyants and psychics. The most intelligent and successful people in the world – for example the [...]

Hey Doc Series/ Interstitial Cystitis

February 4th, 2012|Categories: Hey Doc|Tags: , , , |

Hey Doc… I am a 42 year old woman with a chronic interstitial cystitis.  I have been told that they do not know the cause of this condition or how to cure it.  I am on a drug called Elmiron that gives me very little relief. Help! M.J.B. in Indio- -------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear M.J.B., Your condition is fairly common – they estimate 750,000 to 1,000,000 women have this condition. You are correct in saying they do not know the cause or the cure. This is a condition that is manifested by a gnawing discomfort in the bladder that is persistent and [...]

Hormonal Balance Is Important For Both Sexes!

Every system in the body, at any age, is controlled by hormones. Accordingly, at any age, hormones can be out of balance and this factor can give rise to certain symptoms, or,moreseriously, certain conditions. In spite of their importance to our health, doctors receive relatively little information about hormones during their training. Instead, emphasis is placed on using prescription drugs to treat the symptoms of disease rather than getting hormones into balance to eliminate the problem. To demonstrate how pervasive hormonal imbalance is, two columns will be presented. One will represent the symptoms that can occur, and the next [...]
