PCOS Lady:
This woman spent 30 years of her life to tell you the truths(s) on why you get sick and are sick! I feel everyone needs to know the factual truth(s)… I hope you gain a new knowledge on the medical industry and why certain things are not done, exposed, the red tape, the road blocks we encounter, etc…
~ I will keep adding to this post as i research her findings…
~ QUESTION your doctor(s)…
~ SYMPTOMS COUNT!!!!!
~
FACT:
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease control nearly 100 MILLION Americans are infected with internal parasites like pinworms, whipworms, and tapeworms just to name a few… many of which are passed from their pets to their owners.
~
Are Parasites Making YOU Sick?
~
* Do you suffer with a list of mysterious aches, pains and illnesses?
* Does your doctor brush off your concerns… or doesn’t seem to have answers?
* Are you taking prescription drugs for a condition… but see little benefit?
* Are you frustrated that your doctor treats the PAIN… instead of playing detective to eliminate the ROOT CAUSE of your ongoing discomfort?
* Has your doctor ever ONCE discussed parasites or toxins with you?
~
Because here’s the thing:
Just because modern medicine has decided to IGNORE the problem of parasites and environmental toxins doesn’t mean they’re not invading our bodies and making us sick.
~
Your body has been trying to rid itself of parasites and pollutants your entire life!
You’ve even seen the signs:
Your body makes stones… mucous secretions… toxic dumpsites. It uses swelling… inflammation… cysts… tumours… mystery pain… headaches… diarrhea… constipation… poor digestion… weight gain… water retention… eczema… psoriasis… warts… acne… insomnia… extreme fatigue… PMS… bad breath… unusual body odour… cramps… stomach pains… joint pain… and the list goes on!
~
At first, when you’re younger, these symptoms are a nuisance. You might just feel a bit ‘off.’ Maybe your doctor has even told you these things are ‘normal’ and ‘of little concern.’
~
But as time progresses, and your body has more and more trouble fighting off the invaders, you begin to feel really sick.
~
Your list of seemingly unconnected symptoms begin to snowball. And your health issues start to get serious. Really serious.
~
What has your body been trying to tell you?

Look At Some Of Dr. Clark’s Other Parasite Discoveries:
~
* Those sick with colds are ALWAYS polluted with mycotoxins (the extremely toxic substances made by food molds)!
* Everyone with cancer has the human intestinal fluke in their liver – but no one else does!
* Everyone with diabetes has the pancreatic fluke of cattle in their pancreas – but few others do.
* Everyone with environmental illness tested positive for Fasciola (sheep liver fluke) in their liver!

* Everyone with asthma tested positive for Ascaris in their lungs!
… And the list goes on and on.

Dr. Hulda Clark Uncovered A Startling Truth:
There Are Only 2 Real Health Problems:
That’s right, according to Dr. Clark, no matter how long and confusing your list of symptoms may be…
… From joint pain to chronic inflammation to irritable bowel syndrome or eczema…
~
Your issues of pain and illness can typically be traced back to 2 problems:
* Parasites and/or Pollution. *
~
And during her 30 years of clinical research and patient study, she concluded:
~
• If you can get rid of the parasites from your body…
• And if you can prevent them from re-invading by eliminating pollution and toxins from your environment…

~
… Then you can rid your body of disease and pain and restore health!
~
Sound crazy? Not convinced parasites could be at the root of your chronic pain issues?
I must tell you, I wasn’t a believer to start, either. Beyond discussions of hand washing to prevent colds and the spread of e-coli, when do we EVER talk about parasites?
(Outside of deworming our pets???)
~
But, in fact, Dr. Clark found that every person suffering with a ‘mysterious illness’ or ‘incurable pain’ was ALWAYS infected with some parasite or pollutant!
~
Including those suffering with joint pain, arthritis and inflammation!
~
In fact, she found that all her patients suffering with joint pain (in any form) were typically infected with as many as 4 specific types of worms!
~
And she found that exposure to three specific toxins as well as certain solvents in your home environment made you vulnerable to these parasites by lowering your body’s immunity and allowing the tiny larvae to infest and live within your muscles and joints…
… While opening the door for invasion by other parasites, bacteria and viruses, too!

Stop Being Held Hostage By Your Doctor
~
Dr. Clark said it best…
~
“Since the beginning of time, the sick have been held hostage by doctors and healers who surround themselves with mystery as they use herbs, chemicals and all manners of mysterious remedies to ‘cure’ and help the sick recover…
… And this mystery is used to justify the extraordinary costs of your diagnosis and healing.”

~
Dr. Clark was actually advised to patent her medical inventions.
She never did. Instead, she believed that her knowledge should be readily, freely available to whomever needed it.
She was on a mission to bring the world out of the dark ages of medicine and illness. And to learn the true causes of infection and disease.
She was keen to usher in a new age of disease-free living.
And so, to continue her legacy, I believe…

Dr. Clark Was Falsely And Unjustly Accused,
In My Opinion, Of Being A ‘Quack’
Dr. Clark was harassed.
Arrested.
(Jailed at the age of 71, and held without bail for more than 2 weeks!)
And then finally driven out of the country into Mexico, where she fled and continued to practice against all odds.
~
Why? Well, you can probably guess…
~
Her natural cures and remedies, in many cases, eliminate the need for drugs and doctors.
So this idealistic woman who had spent 30 years of her life doing private clinical research and treating patients found herself pitted against the deep, angry pockets of medical associations, pharmaceutical companies and government cronies…
… Who were all trying to silence her.
It wasn’t a fair fight.
~
And even now that Dr. Clark is gone (she died in September 2009), there is STILL an insidious public relations machine that continues to pump out slanderous information, painting her as a quack and fraud of monstrous proportions.

Thanksgiving Morning Entrapment
~
Thursday, November 24, 2011

At 03:20, Companies 49 (Milmont), 43 (Holmes), and 62 (Vauclain) were dispatched to the 1000 block of Girard Ave for a reported vehicle into a pole. While en route, 70-7 confirmed they had two subjects heavily trapped and requested units to expedite. Upon arrival, Medic Ridley-7 requested the driver to be removed first. Crew from Rescue 43 popped the driver’s door and moved to the passenger’s side to begin the door pop on the that side. Upon arrival of Rescue 62, they were instructed by 43 Command to start roof removal along with the crew from Rescue 43. After roof removal was completed, EMS ascertained that the driver’s leg was entangled and the crew from 62 handled the driver’s removal.
~
43’s crew continued to work on the extrication of the passenger, who was heavily pinned due to the impact on the passengers side with a large tree. Crews from 43 popped the passengers door and made a third door in an attempt to gain better access to the victim. Due to the intrusion of the dash, firewall and rocker area, attempts were severely hindered. The tow truck was positioned to pull the vehicle from the tree for the crew to gain better access, but this proved unsuccessful due to a telephone pole and guide wire. 62’s crew utilized a ram from the center console area and 43’s crew utilized a spreader under the hinge area to gain enough room to safely disentangle the passenger’s legs.
~
All rescue operations were coordinated with Medic Ridley-7 and Ambulance 70. EMS was able to stabilize both victims throughout the extrication process and transport to a local trauma center. The Company was in service for approximately 1 hour and fifteen minutes to extricate both victims.

Lupus: Mimics PCOS, MS

Posted in LUPUS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:31 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady: The Revolution TV show touched on Lupus today… Toni Braxton was diagnosed with Lupus in 1988… Lupus is extremely hard to diagnose… Took four years for her…

Lupus
By Mayo Clinic staff
~
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
~
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many but not all cases of lupus.
~
The most common signs and symptoms include:
~
~ Fatigue and fever
~ Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
~ *Butterfly-shaped rash on the face that covers the cheeks and bridge of the nose
~ Skin lesions that appear or worsen with sun exposure
~ Fingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
~ Shortness of breath
~ Chest pain
~ Dry eyes
~ Headaches, confusion, memory loss
~
When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you develop an unexplained rash, ongoing fever, persistent aching or fatigue.

Hypopituitarism Pituitary Insufficiency

Posted in FATIGUE, RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:18 pm by PCOSLady

Hypopituitarism Pituitary Insufficiency
~
Pituitary insufficiency post is important since many people are having radiation, brain surgery, etc… today… You may not be told of the long after effects that can occur in you!
~ … My close friend had a deadly cancer removed from his sinus cavity (under eye) a few years ago… The fatigue and pituitary symptoms started two years ago… The symptoms are now progressing real quick! He was up 24/7 now he just wants or has to sleep like 24/7…
~
Hypopituitarism
~
Pituitary Insufficiency
~
Hypopituitarism is a condition in which the pituitary gland does not produce normal amounts of some or all of its hormones.
~
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
~
The pituitary gland is a small structure that is located just below the brain. It is attached by a stalk to the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that controls its function.
~
The hormones released by the pituitary gland (and their functions) are:
~
~ Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) — stimulates the adrenal gland to release cortisol; cortisol helps to maintain blood pressure and blood sugar
~ Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) — controls water loss by the kidneys
~ Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) — controls sexual function and fertility in males and females
~ Growth hormone (GH) — stimulates growth of tissues and bone
~ Luteinizing hormone (LH) — controls sexual function and fertility in males and females
~ Oxytocin — stimulates the uterus to contract during labor and the breasts to release milk
~ Prolactin — stimulates female breast development and milk production
~ Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) — stimulates the thyroid gland to release hormones that affect the body’s metabolism
~
In hypopituitarism, there is a lack of one or more pituitary hormones. Lack of the hormone leads to loss of function in the gland or organ that it controls. For example, no TSH leads to loss of function in the thyroid gland.
~
Hypopituitarism may be caused by:
~
~ Brain surgery
~ Brain tumor
~ Head trauma
~ Infections of the brain and the tissues that support the brain
~ Radiation
~ Stroke
~ Subarachnoid hemorrhage (from a burst aneurysm)
~ Tumors of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus
~
Occasionally, hypopituitarism is due to uncommon immune system or metabolic diseases, such as:
~
~ Hemochromatosis
~ Histiocytosis X
~ Lymphocytic hypophysitis
~ Sarcoidosis
~
Hypopituitarism is also a rare complication after pregnancy, a condition called Sheehan’s syndrome.
~
Symptoms
~
~ Abdominal pain
~ Decreased appetite
~ Decreased sexual interest (in men)
~ Failure to release milk (in women)
~ Fatigue
~ Headache
~ Infertility (in women)
~ Lack of sex drive (in women)
~ Loss of armpit or pubic hair
~ Loss of body or facial hair (in men)
~ Low blood pressure
~ Sensitivity to cold
~ Short height (less than 5 feet) if onset is during a growth period
~ Slowed growth and sexual development (in children)
~ Stopping of menstrual periods (in women)
~ Vision problems
~ Weakness
~ Weight loss
~
Note: Symptoms may develop slowly and may vary greatly, depending upon:

~
~ The number of hormones that are missing and the organs they affect
~ The severity of the disorder
~
Other symptoms that may occur with this disease:
~
~ Face swelling
~ Hair loss
~ Hoarseness or changing voice
~ Joint stiffness
~ Weight gain (unintentional)
~
Signs and tests
~
To diagnose hypopituitarism, there must be low hormone levels due to a problem with the pituitary gland. The diagnosis must also rule out diseases of the organ that is affected by this hormone.
~
Tests include:
~
~ Brain CT scan
~ Pituitary MRI
~ Serum ACTH
~ Serum cortisol
~ Serum estradiol (estrogen)
~ Serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
~ Serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)
~ Serum luteinizing hormone (LH)
~ Serum testosterone level
~ Serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
~ Thyroid hormone (T4)
~
Levels of a pituitary hormone may be high in the bloodstream if you have a pituitary tumor that is producing too much of that hormone. The tumor may crush other cells of the pituitary, leading to low levels of other hormones.

Male Adrenal Fatigue

Posted in FATIGUE, RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , at 11:52 pm by PCOSLady

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.

Tests for Adrenal Fatigue You Can Do At Home
~
In Dr. Wilson’s book, Adrenal Fatigue , he lists 3 tests you can do at home to help determine if you have Adrenal Fatigue (or Burned Out Adrenals, as Dr. S calls it). This might be helpful for those who can’t afford a Cortisol test.
~
Test #1: Iris Contraction Test
Equipment required: chair, small flashlight, mirror, a watch (with a second hand), and a dark room.
~
In a darkened room, sit in a chair in front of a mirror. Holding the flashlight at the side of your head, shine it across one eye (not into the eye). Watch what happens in the mirror.
~
You should see your pupil contract immediately after the light hits the eye. The pupil will normally stay contracted, but if you have adrenal fatigue, the pupil won’t be able to hold its contraction and will dilate. This dilation will take place within 2 minutes and last for about 30-45 seconds before it contracts again. Time how long the dilation lasts and record it along with the date. Retest monthly as it serves as an indicator of recovery.
~
Test #2: Blood Pressure Test
If your blood pressure drops when you stand up from a lying position, this almost always indicates low adrenals. This can be measured with a blood pressure gauge (a sphygmomanometer), which you can buy at a drug store. Make sure to purchase the type that doesn’t require a stethoscope to take your blood pressure.
~
Make sure to do this test when you are well hydrated or it could give you a false positive. Lie down quietly for about 10 minutes, then take your blood pressure (while still lying down). Then stand up and measure your blood pressure immediately upon standing. Normally blood pressure will rise 10-20mmHg from standing up. If your blood pressure drops, you likely have adrenal fatigue. The more severe the drop, the more severe the adrenal fatigue.
~
* Test #3: Sergent’s White Line
This is only present in about 40% of people with Adrenal Fatigue, but if the test is positive, it’s a “slam dunk” confirmation.
~
With a ballpoint pen, take the cap end of the pen and lightly stroke the skin on your abdomen, making a mark about 6″ long. Within a few seconds, a line should appear. In a normal reaction, the mark is initially white, but reddens within a few seconds. If you have Adrenal Fatigue, the line will stay white for about 2 minutes and will also widen.
