PTEN Mutations as a Cause of Constitutive Insulin Sensitivity and Obesity
~
Background
~
Epidemiologic and genetic evidence links type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cancer. The tumor-suppressor phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN) has roles in both cellular growth and metabolic signaling. Germline PTEN mutations cause a cancer-predisposition syndrome, providing an opportunity to study the effect of PTEN haploinsufficiency in humans.

Scientists find insulin sensitivity gene, may lead to new diabetes treatments
~
The PTEN gene encodes for an enzyme that is part of the insulin signalling pathway in the body. It is known to have a role in controlling the body’s metabolism, and to play a part in cell growth. The Oxford team was interested in learning more about this dual role.
~
There is an inherited genetic condition called Cowden syndrome caused by faults in the PTEN gene. It is very rare and is thought to affect perhaps one in 200,000 people, with around 300 people with the condition in the UK. PTEN’s role in cell growth sees people with Cowden syndrome develop many benign polyps in their skin, mouth and bowel, and have a higher risk than the general population of developing breast cancer, thyroid cancer and womb cancer.

Natural Cures for High Testosterone in Women

PCOS Lady:
Remember a high testosterone level like a man in his 30’s is perfect for older women…

I hope you learn more on the topic and find something that works for you! Some doctors do not worry about and do not mention your having a high level… Do your own research! Protect yourself…

NATURAL CURES FOR HIGH TESTOSTERONE IN WOMEN
~
http://www.livestrong.com/article/22748-decrease-testosterone-women-naturally/
~
Women naturally have about one-tenth the amount of testosterone as men, but as they age, testosterone levels can rise. According to Dr. Abraham Kryger with the Monterey Preventive Medical Clinic, by the time a woman reaches 40, she can have testosterone levels approximately half that of a 20-year-old man’s. Although high testosterone levels can have some beneficial side effects such as increased muscle mass and a higher libido, one common side effect many women do not care for is an increased growth of bodily hair. This condition, known as hirsutism, can be extremely annoying and embarrassing, but can easily be treated through a variety of natural remedies.
~
Step 1
~
Take nutritional supplements to lower your testosterone. Diindolylmethane, or DIM, is a natural supplement made from cauliflower and broccoli, and is known to reduce androgens, or male sex hormones (among which is testosterone). Taken daily, 120 mg of DIM should help correct your hormonal balance; 200 mg of Calcium-D-Glucarate, twice daily, may also help to get your hormones back in balance.
Hormones for Hair Loss? Most Highly Trained Physicians in Hormones for Hair Loss in Women. www.BodyLogicMD.com/Hair-Loss-Women
~
Step 2
~
Drink herbal teas or consume them in capsule or tincture form to help you lower your testosterone levels. Perhaps one of the best (and tastiest) herbs for correcting this problem is spearmint. Studies performed at the Suleyman Demirel University in Isparta, Turkey, show that women drinking two cups of spearmint tea for five days significantly lowered their androgen levels. Other herbs known to reduce testosterone levels include black cohosh (20 to 40 mg twice daily), saw palmetto (160 mg twice daily) and chaste tree (20 to 40 mg daily).
~
Step 3
~
Consult an acupuncturist regarding treatment for hirsutism and high testosterone. Although sufficient evidence has not been compiled to determine just how acupuncture can benefit women with high testosterone levels, the University of Maryland Medical Center reports that a small study of women treated with acupuncture for their hirsutism showed a reduction of hair length and density, as well as testosterone levels.

Is treatment for high testosterone / PCOS imperative for females’ health?
~
Asked by R…
~
I’m 19 and I went to the doctor to see what I can do about hair growth on my stomach and chest and my blood test showed that my testosterone was around 17 (normal range for female my age is 0.8 to 7.4). So I’ve been taking some herbal pills given to me by my doctor like aptogen and ovablend and the decrease in my libido makes me want to stop taking it and just pay for electrolysis or something. I’m not worried about PCOS affecting my fertility because at this point I don’t want kids and I can always adopt but is lowering my testosterone crucial to my health in other ways?
~
Best Answer – by Dr Julio
~
Actually the elevated estrogen levels (or so called estrogen dominance) associated with PCOS are more of a long term risk than testosterone. It increases the risk of endometrial cancers, cardiovascular disease/heart attack, and stroke, later in life.
~
Have you had your insulin levels tested? PCOS is often associated with elevated insulin levels, due to something called insulin resistance. The higher level of insulin is believed to be the root cause of the ovary problems (by increasing testosterone levels, and causing the failure of follicles to mature properly, and the elevated estrogen:progesterone ratio). It also puts PCOS sufferers at a higher risk of diabetes later in life. If you haven’t had your insulin levels checked, then I would recommend you do that.
~
One of the most effective treatments I have seen for PCOS is a natural substance called d-chiro-inositol. It is present in certain foods (buck wheat, carob, fig leaf melon, and bitter gourds). It can also be purchased as a food supplement (it is not considered a drug). This food extract has been shown in clinical trials (albeit small scale) to reduce blood glucose levels, and blood pressure, in PCOS sufferers. Many of the women taking it also ovulated normally. This compound is believed to reduce insulin production (too complex to explain how, put simply it reduces the insulin resistance). The dosage used in the studies was 600mg and 1200mg per day for 8 weeks. Both dosages worked equally well as I recall. I personally would put much more faith in this than in ovablend or adaptogen.
~
A couple of notes. 1) You can also buy plain “inositol” as a food supplement, but this is not effective. It comes in 9 different forms, but only one specific one is effective. So it has to be d-chiro inositol.
2) Some brands are natural extracts, whilst others are made synthetically. So check if you want the natural extract specifically.
~
There is also a drug used for diabetes, metformin, that is used to treat PCOS by reducing insulin resistance. But people who have tried both have said that d-chiro inositol is more effective and has less side effects.

Walking Barefoot for Good Health

Posted in NATURAL WELL BEING tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 3:46 pm by PCOSLady

~
Why Walking Barefoot Might Be an Essential Element of Good Health
~
September 20 2012
~
By Dr. Mercola
~
When’s the last time you kicked off your shoes and reveled in the feeling of the Earth under your feet?
~
Been awhile?
~
It may sound hard to believe, but engaging in this simple pleasure could give your health a much-needed boost.
~
Often it is the case that engaging in activities that feel good on an intrinsic level really are good for your health — like the feeling of the afternoon sun warming your bare skin.
~
Walking barefoot outside, with the soles of your feet free to mesh with the surface of the Earth – an activity known as Earthing, or grounding — is another such case.
~
I have been personally intrigued with grounding for nearly seven years and have been seeking to ground myself most of the time.
~
This is a fascinating leading-edge concept, and I would strongly encourage you to carefully read the featured article for more details.
~
You are an Electrical Being, and the Earth’s Surface is Electrically Conductive
~
You are an electrical being — your body regularly produces positive charges, which can oxidize and harm you if it is excessive..
~
The Earth’s surface is electrically conductive; it maintains a negative charge with its free electron supply continually replenished by the global atmospheric electrical circuit.
~
A Review of Earthing Research Shows Significant Benefits
~
In a new article published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health, researchers reviewed the Earthing research, revealing an impressive impact on a variety of health conditions. Most of the studies involved indoor testing methods that simulated being barefoot outdoors. This was found to offer improvements in the following conditions:
~
~ Sleep disturbances, including sleep apnea
~ Chronic muscle and joint pain, and other types of pain
~ Asthmatic and respiratory conditions
~ Rheumatoid arthritis
~ PMS
~ Hypertension
~ Energy levels
~ Stress
~ Immune system activity and response
~ Heart rate variability
~ Primary indicators of osteoporosis
~ Fasting glucose levels among people with diabetes
~
PCOS Lady:
I love walking barefoot! Now i know the health benefits for it… Spiritual people know about grounding and the importance in it… Go barefoot’n!
~
Another invaluable benefit is this: when your body is grounded, researchers write, “its electrical potential becomes equalized with the Earth’s electrical potential through a transfer of electrons from the Earth to the body.” This, in turn, offers an “umbrella” of protection against the electromagnetic fields that are now ubiquitous in our environment. The paper continues:
~
“The study confirms the “umbrella” effect of earthing the body explained by Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman in his lectures on electromagnetism. Feynman said that when the body’s potential is the same as the Earth’s electric potential (and thus grounded), it becomes an extension of the Earth’s gigantic electric system. The Earth’s potential thus becomes the “working agent that cancels, reduces, or pushes away electric fields from the body.”
~
Most of the scientists working in this area now believe that the beneficial effects are mediated through reduction in inflammation and a thinning of the blood. In fact the blood thinning effect is so profound that if you are taking blood thinners it is recommended to immediately consult with your doctor, as most likely your blood thinner will need to be lowered.
~
Two Ways to Make Sure You Stay Grounded
~
The effects of grounding appear to be so profound that researchers suggest health practitioners prescribe outdoor “barefoot sessions” as the weather permits. This is as simple as it sounds – you kick off your shoes and socks and walk barefoot on the grass, the dirt, the sand or whatever “Earth” is available to you. Studies suggest that benefits such as pain relief and stress reduction may occur in just 30-80 minutes of barefoot time a day.
~
This can obviously be a challenge during the winter, or if you live in an urban area without easy access to parks or other barefoot-friendly surfaces, so the other option is to use a grounding or Earthing pad, which allows you to get the benefits of the Earth’s electrons even if you’re indoors, especially when you’re sleeping. I’ve been using one for several months now, especially when I travel by plane, as air travel is a suspected cause of weakening bio-electric currents.
~
So, like access to regular sun exposure, walking barefoot outside is a grossly neglected foundational practice that you can easily correct. In the Journal of Environmental and Public Health, researchers concluded:
~
“Emerging evidence shows that contact with the Earth—whether being outside barefoot or indoors connected to grounded conductive systems—may be a simple, natural, and yet profoundly effective environmental strategy against chronic stress, ANS [autonomic nervous system] dysfunction, inflammation, pain, poor sleep, disturbed HRV [heart rate variability], hypercoagulable blood, and many common health disorders, including cardiovascular disease.
~
The research done to date supports the concept that grounding or earthing the human body may be an essential element in the health equation along with sunshine, clean air and water, nutritious food, and physical activity.”
~
Read the entire article on the site…
~
NOTE
~
PCOS Lady:
Doctors rarely ever tell you to walk barefoot outside! Makes me think and realize they wouldn’t cause we would not be as sick as we are if we did walk outside barefoot grounding ourselves…
~ I remember seeing on TV years ago a man wake up in the am with the bottom half of his arm missing, no blood…
~ The electrical charge in his body blew it off! Cauterized it as well…
~ Sure is something to remember!

MAGNESIUM ~ EPSOM SALTS
~
http://www.ehow.com/how_4887228_epsom-salt-number-of-ways.html
~ EHow …
Increase your magnesium levels in your body by soaking in Epsom salt bath water three times weekly. While it is extremely difficult to get enough magnesium in our systems through our diets, it is readily absorbs into our systems through our skin. Magnesium is needed by our bodies for many functions; however, a doctor should be consulted prior to extensive use, particularly for those with kidney problems. Magnesium works to activate many other enzymes our body needs.
~
Magnesium is useful in the treatment of asthma, COPD, fibromyalgia, ADD, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, angina, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, fatigue, kidney stones, migraine and tension headaches, complications due to pregnancy and premenstrual syndrome. Our bodies cannot properly use serotonin without the assistance of magnesium. Serotonin is a natural chemical created within the brain responsible for feelings of well being and relaxation. So maybe there is something to that saying “Calgon take me away”?

Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/12/17/magnesium-benefits.aspx?e_cid=20121217_DNL_art_1
~ Dr Mercola … Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined… A number of studies have previously shown magnesium can benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke. But its role in human health appears to be far more complex than previously thought, and—like vitamin D—its benefits may be more far-reaching than we’ve imagined. GreenMedInfo.com‘s database project has indexed over 100 health benefits of magnesium so far, including therapeutic benefits for: Fibromyalgia, Cardiovascular disease, Atrial fibrillation, Migraine, Type 2 diabetes, Aging, Premenstrual syndrome, Mortality… As you age: Age — older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption… Diabetes, especially if it’s poorly controlled, leading increased magnesium loss in urine…

FUNGAL INFECTIONS
~
http://www.bettermedicine.com/article/fungal-infections
~
What are fungal infections?
~
Fungal infections are infections caused by a fungus, a type of microorganism. Two common causes of fungal infections are a fungus called tinea and yeast infections caused by the fungus Candida albicans.
~
Some very common types of fungal infections caused by tinea include:
~
~ Athlete’s foot
~ Jock itch
~ Ringworm
~
Common yeast infections, also called candida and candidiasis, can infect other areas of the body including:
~
~ Digestive tract (gastroenteritis)
~ Lungs
~ Mouth (oral thrush)
~ Vagina (vaginal yeast infection, vaginal thrush)
~
In most cases, fungal infections are treatable in generally healthy people. However, these infections are more likely to occur and can be more difficult to treat in people with weakened immune systems due to such conditions as HIV/AIDS, diabetes, or taking steroid medications or chemotherapy. In these cases, complications of fungal infections may become life threatening.
~
Recurring fungal infections can also be a symptom of a serious, undiagnosed, underlying disease, such as HIV/AIDS or diabetes. Seek prompt medical care for recurring fungal infections including vaginal yeast infections.
~
What are the symptoms of fungal infections?
~
Symptoms of fungal infections differ depending on the type and severity of the infection, the area of the body affected, and individual factors…. Read more about fungal infections symptoms
What causes fungal infections?

Different types of fungus cause a variety of fungal infections:… Read more about fungal infections causes at the site page…
~
PCOS Lady:
Fungal Arthritis is something to consider, especially if medication(s) are not helping you…
~
How are fungal infections treated?
~
Treatment of fungal infections begins with seeking regular medical care throughout your life. Regular medical care allows your health care professional to assess your risks of developing fungal infections and promptly order diagnostic testing for fungal infections and underlying conditions as needed. These measures greatly increase the chances of diagnosing and treating underlying causes of fungal infections in their earliest stages…. Read more about fungal infections treatments at the site…

INFECTIONS OF THE INTERNAL ORGANS

~ Something to consider here especially for those with asthma…
~
I would add also if you have a weakened immune system, are sick or have burned the hairs in your nose at some point…
~
http://www.janssen-cilag.com/bgdisplay.jhtml?itemname=fungal_symptoms
~
INFECTIONS OF THE INTERNAL ORGANS
~
Most internal infections are caused by the invasion of Aspergillus. The spores of this so-called ‘invasive’ fungus are found everywhere. They are breathed in and enter the body via the bronchi. A systemic infection with Aspergillus can be life threatening. Fortunately, not everyone is infected; it mainly affects people with damaged bronchi or those who have a weakened resistance.
~
If fungal spores are breathed in, different symptoms may appear:
~
~ Asthma, caused by an allergy for the fungus. These are occupational diseases that affect farmers, pigeon flyers, beer brewers, etc…
~ A fungal ball. This happens to people who suffered a pulmonary disease that left a ‘hole’ in the lung, e.g. tuberculosis. In this hole, the spores can grow into a fungal ball. In many cases, the patient will not be bothered by it, but sometimes this fungal ball causes other diseases.
~ Lung growth. In people with a seriously weakened resistance, the fungus can grow into the lungs and finally even into the blood vessels which can be fatal. Doctors will undoubtedly try to stop the growth of the fungus with medication but treatment is not always effective.

The human race is the unwitting participant in a massive science experiment, as presented in this masterful new documentary by Jeffrey Smith. Smith is one of the world’s leading authorities on the health dangers of genetically engineered (GE) foods.
~
The film expands on his second book, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods.
~
As a consumer advocate against GE foods, Smith’s authority is unrivaled. His meticulous research has documented how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials.
~
The health of the environment in peril. Smith has made this information widely available via his Institute for Responsible Technology website, one of the most comprehensive sources of GE health information on the Internet.

Story at-a-glance
The health dangers of genetically engineered (GE) foods are masterfully presented in this documentary by Jeffrey Smith, one of the world’s leading authorities on GE foods
~
Americans get sick more often than Europeans or people from any other industrialized nation, and scientific evidence suggests a significant factor may be the genetic engineering of our food supply
~
Despite claims by government regulators and the food industry that GE foods are safe, scientific studies continue to show the opposite; GE foods have been linked with allergies, reproductive problems and infertility, birth defects, bizarre mutations, cancer, and now an unidentified mystery organism causing an epidemic of livestock deaths, “Sudden Death Syndrome”
~
GE foods trigger immune attack because they appear to your body as foreign invaders rather than food; this immune response can lead to chronic inflammation, which in turn raises your risk for multiple additional health problems
~
The two main types of GE foods are herbicide-tolerant crops and pesticide-producing crops; both are imprecise processes that are riddled with unexpected consequences, such as hundreds to thousands of genetic mutations that have unknown effects on human health
~
How Can the Wealthiest Industrialized Nation be the Sickest?
~
Americans get sick more often than Europeans or people from any other industrialized nation. Since the mid-1990s, the number of Americans suffering from at least three chronic illnesses nearly doubled. Life expectancy has decreased and infant mortality has increased. Illnesses once rare are now common, with some approaching epidemic levels. For example:
~
Autism now affects one in 88 children (CDC1), compared to one in 25,000 in the mid-1970s
~
Type 2 diabetes rates in the U.S. increased by 176 percent between 1980 and 2010
~
Celiac disease is four times more common now than 60 years ago
~
Alzheimer’s disease is rising at alarming rates. It’s estimated that 5.4 million Americans (one in eight older Americans) now has Alzheimer’s disease, and nearly half of those age 85 and older have it; AD rates have doubled since 1980
~
~ New infectious diseases are increasing in number, according to a 2008 study
~
~ In his documentary, Jeffrey Smith makes a convincing argument that one of the primary forces driving these illnesses is America’s changing food supply. And one of the most profound changes is genetically engineered food. Proving GE food is causing Americans to be sick is a tall order, but the evidence presented in this film is very compelling and should not be ignored.
