The adrenal glands secrete hormones such as DHEA, Cortisol, Estrogen, and Testosterone that are essential to health & wellness and have a significant impact on total body function. As a person ages, the adrenal glands become the major source of sex hormones in both women and men. Whether addressing thyroid health or an age-related decline in the sex hormones, evaluating the level of adrenal function will allow for more accurate patient diagnosis and treatment.
Sometimes called natural hormones or human identical hormones, biologically identical hormones are derived from plants, such as the wild yam or soybean plant, and are chemically and functionally identical to human hormones. The wild yam is rich in precursor molecules that can be converted in the laboratory into estrogens and other hormones whose molecular structure is the same as those produced in the human body. Biologically identical hormones produce the same physiologic responses in the body as endogenous hormones (those made by the body). Substances that are most similar to what our body produces naturally support human functioning without increased risk of allergic reactions and sensitivities.
Produced from cholesterol by way of pregnenolone, DHEA is an androgen that is
metabolized to form androstenedione, which begets testosterone which begets estradiol
and then estrone, and finally, estriol.
A woman’s estrogen levels fluctuate throughout her monthly cycle and throughout her life. The
unique pattern of fluctuation for each woman, means that each woman’s body/mind/emotions
reacts differently to the deficiencies and excesses that occur.
Among the first steps in determining the proper course of therapy for is to check your hormone levels using urine, blood, or saliva tests. Knowing whether hormone levels are within the optimal range, in combination with symptoms, will help optimize treatment. If you are still cycling, testing is best done on day 21.
Melatonin is best known as a sleep hormone because of its action controlling the circadian cycle.But melatonin also has antioxidant properties, and may have an important anti-aging role. Theability to tolerate inflammation, in whatever form, is a key to healthy aging. A new study showsthat melatonin can restore the ability of important cell components to withstand the effects ofinflammatory stress. This is a distinct anti-aging effect on cells.
Osmotic proliferant solutions are the most commonly used proliferants and include dextrose and glycerin. These are injected and cause a higher osmotic (concentrated) gradient outside of the cells than inside of the cells. This causes cells to lose water and break.
Cortisone: The major natural glucocorticoid made by the adrenal cortex. High levels are often associated with puffiness, high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Hydrocortisone is produced by the adrenal glands. Hydrocortisone helps boost the immune system to assist in recovery from infections, illness, or stress. Hydrocortisone may be beneficial in treating autoimmune disorders such as Crohn’s, multiple sclerosis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis.
