A Note From the Queen
Wow! This month went by fast. I celebrated my 4? Birthday. (no, I'm not telling you my age)
I just took a weekend class, two weeks ago, on the endocrine system. The class taught me how to balance female hormones. I have attended the first of three classes. I take part two in December. I am reviewing the information from my notes and I wanted to share a little.
The endocrine system is a delicate system that keeps our bodies in balance. Hormones are biochemical messengers measured by nana grams and pica grams. A nana gram is like one salt granule in a tanker ship full of salt. And a pica gram is like a granule of sand in a thousand ships.
This is why it's so important to consume foods that are hormone and pesticide free. Estrogen is fed to cows to fatten them up quickly for slaughter. Pesticides are xenotoxins that become xenohormones and turn into fake estrogen in our bodies. They then block the estrogen receptor cytes.
It's this fake estrogen that can cause estrogen dominance in our bodies. This problem is becoming increasingly more problematic among females especially.
The hormones in animals are stored in their fat, so buy hormone free butter first thing while you are transitioning into eating organic meats and vegetables.
I will be talking about symptoms of estrogen dominance, functions of estrogen and progesterone and HRT (hormone replacement therapy) next month.
We all need support in one way or another. We love to talk, share, and help each other. This is what makes us feel strong, independent, and confident. This is where I am going to post classes, and support groups. Let me know the kinds of classes or support groups you are interested in. For example: Feng Shui, relationships, family, career, beauty, diet, healthy cooking, eating raw, and wine tasting, to name a few. The sky is the limit; we can have anything we want. When you email me your ideas, each of you will receive $5.00 towards any of our one hour services. firstname.lastname@example.org
Second of a two-part series on the sunshine vitamin
A few minutes of sun exposure on a summer day can generate huge quantities of vitamin D in a person's body. A cholesterol-like substance in the skin absorbs ultraviolet (UV) energy and creates vitamin D.
A cascade of chemical reactions turns vitamin D into a surprisingly versatile hormone-one that has long been recognized to help the body absorb calcium from the diet to build strong bones.
Recent work, however, indicates that vitamin D also bolsters muscle strength, insulin action, immune health, and the body's natural defenses against cancer.
However, over the millennia, more and more people moved to high latitudes, where up to half the year, solar-UV exposure isn't enough to fuel vitamin D production in skin.
More recently, justifiable concerns about sunburns and skin cancer have prompted increasing shares of people-even at high latitudes-to wear sun-blocking clothing. Unfortunately, what's good for skin protection is bad for natural vitamin D production.
Vitamin D deficiency and musculoskeletal pain
Preliminary evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency may also be particularly common among patients with inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, and that vitamin D may modulate inflammatory responses.
It's shown that the nutrient fights cancers and diabetes, is the pivotal for a hormone that protects muscle, and inhibits autoimmune disorders from multiple sclerosis and lupus to inflammatory bowel disease.
Vitamin D deficiency causes dull, achy musculoskeletal pain that is incompletely responsive to both pharmacological and manual treatments. The pain may be widespread or confined to a particular area, most commonly the low back and lumbar spine.
The mechanism by which this pain is produced has been clearly elucidated: 1) Vitamin D deficiency causes a reduction in calcium absorption, 2) Production of parathyroid (PTH) hormone is increased to maintain blood calcium levels, 3) PTH results in increased urinary excretion of phosphorus, which leads to hypophosphatemia, 4) Insufficient calcium phosphate results in deposition of unmineralized collagen matrix on the endosteal (inside) and periosteal (outside) of bones 5) When the collagen matrix hydrates and swells, it causes pressure on the sensory-innervated periosteum resulting in pain
Vitamin D and Depression
It appears likely that vitamin D modulates serotonin and melatonin synthesis and metabolism.
Alterations in vitamin D levels appear to explain, at least in part, the adverse psychological effects of sunlight deprivation, such as which occurs in winter.
However, with modern habits and work routines, few of us create these higher doses of vitamin D in our bodies throughout the year. So, we rely on our diets for most of this essential nutrient.
Few foods are naturally rich sources of vitamin D and only a few, such as milk, are supplemented with anything more than meager amounts.
Although vitamin pills can provide much or all of the U.S. recommended daily intake (RDI) of D for children and adults-200 to 600 IU, depending on age-bone and mineral, researchers have lately been recommending that people get much, much more. In fact, some scientists have advised the federal government to boost the vitamin D RDI up to at least 1,000 IU and to bump up the certified-safe limit beyond the current 2,000 IU.
Vitamin D And Color
Vitamin D deficiency reaches epidemic proportions among people over 50. Only about 5 percent of these men and 1 to 3 percent of the women get their RDI for this nutrient from diet alone. Supplement use bumps up the share of older adults getting the RDI to about 35 percent of whites, 17 percent of Hispanics, and roughly 10 percent blacks.
These values are especially troubling since people of color have a harder time making vitamin D naturally. The reason? Their skin's dark pigment filters out much of the sun's ultraviolet light.
It's been shown, over and over, that being obese is a risk factor for vitamin D deficiency. Once vitamin D goes into fat, it doesn't come out well,[body] fat appears to act like a sponge. But the problem can be remedied with a vitamin D supplement.
