In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I asked Dr. Michael Platt to come on the show to discuss all things adrenaline.
Dr. Platt is a board-certified in Internal Medicine and has nearly four decades of experience working with patients in varied clinical settings from medical groups to eldercare medicine to health research. He’s currently the president of Platt Wellness Center in Rancho Mirage, California, where he specializes in bio-identical hormones, hormone balancing and the causation of illness.
We talk about his focus on treating health conditions caused by excess adrenaline, which can include fibromyalgia, autism, ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression, anger, weight gain, and addictions, among others—and how progesterone plays a major role in the solution.
“What people don’t understand is that the primary reason why the body releases adrenaline is to provide fuel to the brain,” says Dr. Platt. “You can see from a survival standpoint, the body always wants to make sure the brain has enough fuel. It’s normal for people to release adrenaline at certain times, but I use the term adrenaline dominance to indicate where those people have excess amounts of adrenaline, to the point that it actually has clinical consequences.”
Our conversation covers an assortment of questions, such as:
- Is adrenal fatigue real?
- Can postpartum depression be eliminated with progesterone?
- Is fibromyalgia pain a build-up of lactic acid in the muscles?
- Is ADHD really about interest, rather than focus?
- Should you be intermittent fasting if you have excess adrenaline?
- Can you control adrenaline by controlling insulin?
- Does blocking adrenaline prevent or eliminate stress?
Listen on to find out some interesting answers to these and many other questions during our discussion.
