"Vitamin C is essential for adrenal hormone production, so if you are under stress, increase your vitamin C intake. Most animals have an ability to convert blood sugar into vitamin C to help them to cope with prolonged stress. Humans can't do that; we have to get it from food or pills. Other vitamins that are important for adrenal support are vitamin E (800 units/day); B vitamins, particularly vitamin B6 (50 to 100 mg/day); pantothenic acid (500 mg two to three times a day); and PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid, 300 to 1,500 mg/day)."

"Certain supplements can nourish depleted adrenal glands while encouraging adrenal cortex secretions, which help to maintain optimal hormone balance. In addition to the supplements described in Chapter 5, I designed an Adrenal Boost formula to increase overall energy and decrease fatigue. It is helpful for people who are under stress because it supports the glands that are responsible for energy flow. Anyone whose adrenal system is depressed by stress should also take 7-keto DHEA."

"In fact, by continuing to eat foods that reduce your estrogen load and take supplements that support overall hormone balance, you can positively influence how the estrogen is metabolized in your body. The names for the three most commonly prescribed formulations of bio-identical estrogen are tri-est, bi-est, and estradiol. Tri-est is a combination of the three estrogens you learned about earlier: estrone (El), estradiol (E2), and estriol (E3). Bi-est is a combination of E2 and E3, and estradiol is simple E2."

"It is the only hormone affected by light, temperature, and electromagnetic fields. Melatonin controls the deep and dream phases of your sleep. When your melatonin is low, your sleep is light, you are easily awakened, and you have few, if any, dreams. You may have difficulty falling asleep, and usually there is a real problem falling back to sleep once you are awake. Typically, if your melatonin is low, you will find yourself waking with an anxious feeling in the middle of the night for no good reason."

"This problem occurred with the early studies investigating the potential of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to cause cancer. Many such studies were tainted because it is virtually impossible to enlist women for study who have not taken some form of exogenous hormones?the birth-control pill, the morning-after pill, or HRT—at some point in their lives. Consequently, none of the studies has a clean control group of true "nontakers," with which to compare results. Women who take hormones now are compared with women who have taken hormones in the past. Both situations carry a cancer risk."

"Growth hormone Payback fatigue, if you exert yourself or stay out too late. Mood Problems Depression affects some 20 million Americans, and most depressed Americans are women, perimenopausal or menopausal. We have become a nation with a high population of medicated and sedated women. That is not to say that we haven't greatly improved upon medieval treatments for depression, which included torture and drowning to rid the soul of demons, but I think we can do better. At the turn of the twentieth century, Freud suggested that someday an organic cause would be found to explain depression."

"Indeed, research shows that many women who develop lupus do so a few months after giving birth to a child—a time when hormone levels undergo swift and dramatic changes. Yet the precise ways in which sex hormones influence autoimmune disease remain largely unknown. What researchers do know is that sex hormone balance is a crucial factor in the optimum regulation of immune and inflammatory responses and that hormones such as estrogen that women produce modulate the activity of proteins in our bodies, leading in ways we do not yet fully understand to a more reactive autoimmune response."

"Not even the most dedicated hormone enthusiast would be willing to dose this frequently. For this reason, although bioidentical aldosterone is available from some compounding pharmacies, this is one time I would consider using its synthetic sister, Florinef, or the less potent, natural knockoff, licorice root. Both improve the symptoms of low aldosterone. Both raise Cortisol, which behaves like aldosterone and lowers aldosterone levels. Both raise blood pressure and lower potassium. Florinef effects last all day, and it is generally well tolerated and safely metabolized."

"She was always grumpy, as she put it, always tired, and felt sick much of the time. 4 hormone implants for women are not approved in North America by the FDA. Over the next nine years, her visits to the doctor became ever more frequent, as different parts of her body began to 'play up'. From a healthy, energetic woman who had seldom had the need to see her GP, she appeared to her family and others to have become a hypochondriac. She visited her doctor for problems with her sinuses, her stomach, her bowels, and she saw a consultant for each of these conditions."

"Progesterone, as it naturally occurs, is a reproductive hormone that is dependent upon a healthy corpus luteum and proper levels of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (lutenizing hormone). Chaste tree supports correct corpus luteum function and therefore is pro-progesterone. Oral or topical use of progesterone does nothing for the corpus luteum but only for tissues that respond to that hormone. Use of progesterone for PMS or associated corpus luteum deficiency issues is like putting a new stereo in an old beat up truck; great tunes but still the same old truck."

"When the tariffs began to take their toll on countries within the EU, a truce was reached and the United States was allowed to resume shipping beef, provided it was hormone free. Shortly after the ban was lifted in 1999, EU scientists tested five hundred randomly sampled imported U.S. beef products labeled as hormone-free, and sixty tested positive for hormones, including the hormone diethyl-stilbestrol, a known carcinogen. The positive case of BSE in 2005 hurt the injured U.S. beef export market even more. But the USDA was up to their usual bullying tactics."

"Doctors who turn immediately to hormone replacement therapy, however, rather than take time to consider all the alternatives, are often doing their patients no favours. J had a hysterectomy nearly ten years ago. I did not want my ovaries removed, and went into hospital with a clear idea of what was ahead. Just before my operation, the surgeon chatted to me and said I would not need my ovaries for much longer and it was wiser for me, to avoid ovarian cancer, to have them removed. I can't tell you how sorry I am to have agreed."

"She was not given any kind of analytical tests to discover exactly what her hormone parameters were. Ros accepted the idea of an implant, and the implant itself, without worries or doubts about the judgement of her doctor. The gynaecologist had told her that she would have to be on HRT for the next 20 years, and her doctor had given her a choice. Both these things seemed to mitigate the possibility of any bad consequences or adverse side effects. Ros was given her first implant in the February after her hysterectomy; her second in November. Soon after this, she went on holiday to Malaysia."

"The view expressed throughout the book is that neither doctors nor manufacturers of HRT can realistically give assurances about the safety of hormone replacement therapy to anyone.

"Therefore, this diet does not allow refined or processed foods. Caffeine. Studies have shown that drinking two cups of coffee a day can increase estrogen levels. In a clinical trial involving approximately 500 women between the ages of thirty-six and forty-five, women who consumed more than one cup of coffee a day had significantly higher levels of estrogen during the early follicular phase of their menstrual cycle."

"When a woman begins to menstruate until she is approximately thirty years old, her ratio of estrogen to progesterone is optimal. In this ideal scenario, estrogen does the following for her: • Develops the sex organs and secondary sex characteristics such as breasts and pubic hair. • Maintains the menstrual cycle. • Supports the growth and function of the uterus, specifically creating the lining of the uterus to prepare it for pregnancy. • Stimulates cell growth."

"DHEA is what's for years been called the "junk hormone." In large quantities in our bodies, it converts to both testosterone and estrogen. Most of the studies on almost all of these hormones have been very short-lived, that is six months to a year. So the long-term effects are not well known. The best source of information on hormones is Marc Blackman at the Washington, D.C., Veterans Affairs Medical Center, or Mitchell Harman at the Kronos Longevity Research Institute in Phoenix, Arizona."

"Add in the fact that there is a fast-food restaurant on practically every The Hormones Behind the Headlines Leptin is a hormone that sends messages to the brain to say when we can stop eating-simply put, it calls a halt to hunger pangs. But a new study suggests that something quite common in the typical American diet actually gets in the way of leptin doing its job properly: high triglycerides. According to some compelling research on obese mice, high levels of triglycerides in the blood block this much-welcome "stop eating" signal before it gets to the brain."

"THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM Home to the cells and tissues responsible for the production of hormones, the endocrine system has factored prominently in many theories and discussions about aging. hormone levels measurably change over time and directly influence the activity of most cells in the body. Important hormones that have been shown to decrease with age include insulin, growth hormones, thyroid hormones, DHEA, melatonin, testosterone, estrogen, androgens, and aldosterone."

"These glands tend to control the hormone production and releasing functions of the thyroid by detecting high or low levels of thyroid hormones in the blood and producing hormones themselves that stimulate the thyroid into action. The two main problems associated with thyroid function are hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. In hypothyroidism the gland is producing too little thyroid hormone and in hyperthyroidism it is producing an excess of thyroid hormone."
- John Croft, Health from the Seas: Freedom from Disease (Get the book.)

"The TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test is extremely sensitive to both hypo-and hyperthyroid conditions, often showing even subclinical disorders. Popular prescription thyroid replacement drugs are Synthroid (synthetic thyroid hormone); Armour, Forest Pharmaceuticals (natural thyroid hormone); and Cy-tomel (T3 thyroid fraction). One must be careful not to overdose on thyroid hormone, as it has a fairly long half-life in the body. Thyroid hormone replacement therapy requires the supervision of a knowledgeable endocrinologist."

"Black cohosh can bind to receptor sites without changing hormone levels, but it is not a phytoestrogen. Researchers conducting cell studies have found that black cohosh appears to protect against breast tumor cell growth; it doesn't stimulate tumor growth. So black cohosh is considered safe and effective even for women who are at high risk of developing estrogen-dependent cancers. The dose of black cohosh is 40 mg per day, standardized to contain 2.5 percent triterpene glycosides calculated as 27-deoxyactein. This is the compound and dose used in the many clinical studies."

"The more flavors your taste buds register, the more stimulated the hypothalamus becomes, releasing the hunger-promoting hormone neuropeptide Y. When you taste a lot of flavors at once, the brain releases a lot of neuropeptide Y. Meanwhile, in response to the smell and taste of food, your stomach produces the hormone ghrelin, which also stimulates appetite. It continues to produce this hormone until you eat enough food to literally fill your stomach and stretch the stomach wall."

"Collip, who was looking for evidence of the existence of a new female sex hormone he had reason to believe might exist: I was to go out to the slaughterhouse with a large bucket and bring it back to him as rapidly as possible, filled with the ovaries of freshly slaughtered cows. . . . [Collip] made various extracts of this material and, as I was the youngest member of the academic staff, I was assigned the tedious task of injecting these into female rats and looking for any kind of change produced that could not be ascribed to one of the known hormones of the ovary."

"What researchers do know is that sex hormone balance is a crucial factor in the optimum regulation of immune and inflammatory responses and that hormones such as estrogen that women produce modulate the activity of proteins in our bodies, leading in ways we do not yet fully understand to a more reactive autoimmune response. At the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, researchers have made some headway in explaining how the genetic difference between the sexes plays a role in why women develop multiple sclerosis almost twice as often as men."

"Receptor sites or receptor molecules embedded in the fatty substance of the cell wall are sensitive or receptive to a single type of hormone. Nerve cells contain receptor sites for hormones, but receptor sites are also located on cell walls in the endocrine system, intestinal wall, and other parts of the body. Hormones like thyroid-stimulating hormone, estrogen or testosterone, insulin, and scores of other hormones stimulate specific activities within the cell."

"During perimenopause, symptoms such as menstrual irregularities, breast tenderness, clouded thinking, weight gain, insomnia, and moodiness may appear as a result of altered hormone activity. As the reproductive years wind down, the ovaries don't always produce an egg every month. (A cycle without ovulation is called an anovulatory cycle.) Without ovulation, the ovaries don't produce progesterone, which leaves estrogen unopposed or unbalanced, and this is attributed to many perimenopausal symptoms. Menopause begins for the majority of women in their mid-40s to early 50s; the average age is 51."

"Hot water extracts of European verbena herb have significantly stimulated lutro-pin (luteinizing hormone) secretion from previously LHRH-stimulated (Luteinizing hormone Releasing hormone) pituitary cells [2], whereby the caffeic acid derivatives primarily contribute to this effect. Possibly, the folk medicinal use of the drug as an emmenagogue is related to this action; verbena extracts also increase Follicle-Stimulating hormone (FSH) secretion [2]; further studies are necessary, however, for clarifi- 1 mm Fig. 4: Dehiscent fruit, breaking up into four nutlets. cation."

"Specifically, they cause an abnormal increase in growth hormone during the day and then an abnormal compensatory suppression of the hormone at night, when it most significantly affects growth. The impact on growth hormone is so dramatic that researchers have observed that growth-hormone levels can be used as a marker for whether or not children are taking their medication. If the growth-hormone cycle isn't disrupted, then the children are not taking the medication."

"This enzyme cleaves the bond between the glucuronic acid and estrogen, which means the intact hormone molecule can continue to circulate. Without the beta-glucuronidase attachment, estrogen can't be eliminated, so it is reabsorbed into the bloodstream. It may return to the liver several times before being eliminated. This inefficiency strains the liver, not allowing it to effectively perform its many other tasks. One way to ascertain the efficiency of your estrogen metabolism is with a blood or urine test.
