Suicide
Warning Signs

~
PCOS Lady:
I have had 1st hand experience talking with the Suicide.org representative… Highly knowledgeable on military issues as well as suicide issues…
~ Military present and past in a suicide scenario are to call this place and talk to a rep… The civilian people and law are not to do anything until this place is called and they direct them!
* Point: Many military people are deemed suicidal but reality is they are having PTSD issues!!!!!
~ This is a misdiagnosis that can hurt that person later! Which is the reason to call this place ASAP!
~
I changed the suicide diagnosis on the man i had Durable Power of Attorney and Advance Health Directive over to withdrawal symptoms from his powerful psych drugs… Depakote, Clonezapam, etc…
~ He has their number handy…

Thank you.
~
Suicide Warning Signs:
~
~ Appearing depressed or sad most of the time.
(Untreated depression is the number one cause for suicide.)
~ Talking or writing about death or suicide.
~ Withdrawing from family and friends.
~ Feeling hopeless.
~ Feeling helpless.
~ Feeling strong anger or rage.
~ Feeling trapped — like there is no way out of a situation.
~ Experiencing dramatic mood changes.
~ Abusing drugs or alcohol.
~ Exhibiting a change in personality.
~ Acting impulsively.
~ Losing interest in most activities.
~ Experiencing a change in sleeping habits.
~ Experiencing a change in eating habits.
~ Losing interest in most activities.
~ Performing poorly at work or in school.
~ Giving away prized possessions.
~ Writing a will.
~ Feeling excessive guilt or shame.
~ Acting recklessly.
~
It should be noted that some people who die by suicide do not show any suicide warning signs.
~
But about 75 percent of those who die by suicide do exhibit some suicide warning signs, so we need to be aware of what the suicide warning signs are and try to spot them in people. If we do see someone exhibiting suicide warning signs, we need to do everything that we can to help them.
~
If you or someone you know exhibits several of the suicide warning signs listed above, immediate action is required, so please read the information on the home page of this website and take action.
~
Always take suicide warning signs seriously.

Thank you,

Blood Test May ID Suicide Risk
http://www.medpagetoday.com/theguptaguide/psychiatry/41160
~ Med Page Today … Blood Test May ID Suicide Risk … In a cohort of 42 bipolar patients, the nine who had a dramatic shift from no suicidal thoughts to strong suicidal ideation also had marked increases in levels of SAT1 (spermidine/spermine N1–acetyltransferase 1), as well as other RNA biomarkers, Alexander B. Niculescu III, MD, PhD, director of the Laboratory of Neurophenomics at the Institute of Psychiatric Research at the Indiana University School of Medicine, and colleagues reported online in Molecular Psychiatry.
~ Earlier this year, researchers from the Massachusetts General Hospital found that bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, and major depressive disorder share common genetic underpinnings — despite having different symptoms and disease courses.
~ A meta-analysis from Italian researchers found that lithium lowered suicide risk in those with mood disorders.

Iodine (the good and dificiencies)

Posted in MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:48 pm by PCOSLady

Iodine
~
Iodine is a chemical element found in trace amounts in humans and is vital to the function of the thyroid gland. The function of iodine in the body is in the synthesis of thyroid hormones: thyronine T4 and triiodothyronine T3, which aid in growth and development.
~
Thyroid hormones stimulate basal rate of metabolism, oxygen consumption and heat production. Most of your body’s organ symptoms are directly or indirectly influenced by thyroid hormones.
~
Iodine Deficiency Symptoms
~
What is iodine deficiency?
Iodine is an element that is needed for the production of thyroid hormone. The body does not make iodine, so it is an essential part of your diet. Iodine is found in various foods.
~
Common symptoms that can occur with prolonged iodine deficiency include:

~
~ Constipation
~ Depressed mood
~ Dry skin
~ Fatigue
~ Goiter (enlargement of the thyroid, creating a mass in the neck)
~ Increased sensitivity to cold
~ Menstrual cycle abnormalities
~ Protrusion of the eyes
~ Thickening of the skin
~ Thinning and brittleness of the hair and nails
~ Unintended weight gain
~ Weakness
~
Serious symptoms that might indicate a life-threatening condition,
In some cases, iodine deficiency can be life threatening. Seek immediate medical care (call 911) if you, or someone you are with, have any of these life-threatening symptoms including:
~
~ Being a danger to oneself or others, including threatening, irrational or suicidal behavior
~ Bleeding while pregnant
~ Change in level of consciousness or alertness, such as passing out or unresponsiveness
~ Change in mental status or behavior change, such as confusion, delirium, lethargy, hallucinations or delusions
~ Chest pain, chest tightness, chest pressure, palpitations
~ Respiratory or breathing problems, such as shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, labored breathing, wheezing, not breathing, or choking

Male Adrenal Fatigue

Male Adrenal Fatigue

Finding the Middle of the Road…

Burnt out? Refuel!

Stressed is an understatement. You’re always exhausted, but you can’t sleep. Plus, you ache all over, you’re losing muscle mass and you’re on edge all the time. You try to relax but nothing seems to be helping. Make a pit stop and refuel your hormones.
~
Adrenal Fatigue Treatment
~
Male adrenal fatigue and stress go hand in hand. The adrenal glands, which are two triangle-shaped glands found above the kidneys, are responsible for regulating a man’s reaction to stress. The chief adrenal hormone used to manage stress is cortisol. The adrenal glands emit cortisol in response to stress, low blood sugar, excitement, and during exercise. Under normal circumstances, the adrenal glands emit the highest amount of cortisol within the first hours of waking and slowly decrease production as the day progresses. When stress is not properly managed or when it becomes extreme, the ability for the adrenal glands to function optimally is compromised.
~
What is Male Adrenal Fatigue?
~
If a man’s stress level remains excessive for a prolonged length of time, the adrenal glands respond by producing the adrenal hormone cortisol continually. This over-exertion taxes the adrenal glands to the point where the glands are unable to produce the necessary levels of cortisol to keep up with the demand; and subsequently these drastically diminished levels of cortisol eventually lead to adrenal fatigue in men. This hormone imbalance induced fatigue affects all the other hormones in the body, producing a chain-like reaction.
~
While attempting to maintain high cortisol production to manage the chronic stress levels, the adrenal glands are unable to maintain the production of other necessary hormones. One such hormone, referred to as DHEA or dehydroepiandrosterone, is developed from progesterone. DHEA is vital to maintaining the balance of hormones in your body and low amounts of this important hormone contribute to male adrenal fatigue symptoms.
~
The Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue in Men
~
~ Mid-day fatigue
~ Difficulty falling asleep
~ Emerging allergies
~ Sensitivity to chemicals
~ Anxiety
~ Increased susceptibility to infections
~ Reduced stress tolerance
~ Weakened immune function
~ Inability to sleep through the night
~ Depression
~ Aching joints
~ Diminished sex drive
~ A tendency to feel cold (many individuals and doctors often misdiagnose hypothyroidism)
~ Craving for salt and sweets
~ Erectile dysfunction
~ Loss of muscle mass and strength
~
Adrenal Fatigue Treatment: The Steps to Natural Hormone Balance for Men
~
BodyLogicMD’s bioidentical hormone doctors have successfully helped men suffering from adrenal fatigue with a customized regimen. The first step of adrenal fatigue treatement is complete comprehensive saliva testing to determine your cortisol levels and the amount being produced. Adding natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy when necessary and supplementing with a good multi- vitamin, in addition to vitamins B, C, magnesium and others are a natural next step. Additionally, Ortho Molecular’s Adren-All is recommended to help sustain adrenal function.
~
It is best to avoid hydrogenated fats, excessive caffeine, refined carbohydrates, alcohol and sugar. Instead, we suggest men eat a diet that includes quality protein with regular meals of high nutritional value. Getting eight hours of sleep every night is essential to give the adrenals an opportunity to repair overnight. Furthermore, taking time to evaluate daily and situational stressors and practice stress management with gentle exercise, meditation or yoga can be a very beneficial addition to your customized regimen.
~
Men no longer need to suffer the symptoms of male adrenal fatigue; many of our patients have found the solution for adrenal fatigue treatment is an integrated approach of bioidentical hormone therapy combined with proper nutrition and fitness.
