#113 Address The Underlying Causes of Fatigue with Dr. Evan Hirsch! show art #113 Address The Underlying Causes of Fatigue with Dr. Evan Hirsch!

How Humans Heal

Fatigue is not the same for everyone who experiences it. It can be a complex web of causes which requires a systematic approach in order to avoid aggravations.    In this episode of How Humans Heal, I discuss helping patients recover from fatigue with Dr. Evan Hirsch, [@EvanHirschMD] a functional medical doctor who experienced Chronic Fatigue himself.     He pushed aside the shame and guilt of not feeling well enough to keep up with his life and practice to identify 33 causes of fatigue. His mission became addressing those 33 causes of fatigue for himself and now...

#112 Get Your Cortisol To Optimal with Dr. Doni! show art #112 Get Your Cortisol To Optimal with Dr. Doni!

How Humans Heal

Is it really that important to have optimal cortisol?     Even if your blood work says your cortisol is in the “normal” range?     And even though you don’t have Addison’s disease or Cushing Syndrome?     Yes! I would say a resounding yes based on all the research I’ve read and thousands of patients I’ve helped.     Having optimal cortisol, as well as adrenaline, levels means…     - You’re sending healthy signals throughout your body, instead of stress signals    - You’re decreasing your risk...

#109 Stroke and Burnout Recovery with Dr. Doni! show art #109 Stroke and Burnout Recovery with Dr. Doni!

How Humans Heal

Both of my parents have experienced a stroke in the past 1.5 years.     And I was not prepared. That’s why I recorded this episode of How Humans Heal – to help you be prepared in case your loved one experiences a stroke.     A stroke is when either blood clot or a bleeding blood vessel decreases blood flow to the brain. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S., but a stroke doesn’t always cause death.     For those who survive a stroke, they are likely to experience decreased mobility and long-term disability, especially when over the...

How Humans Heal

Dr. Sue went from working for an advertising firm in Manhattan, to completely changing her life by becoming a naturopathic doctor.     At the same time, she faced her own chronic health challenges, including Lyme disease and severe migraines. It was by addressing a past trauma that completely changed her health. She finally understood why “she is the way she is” and how to support herself to heal.     If you don’t remember before the age of 7, that is a sign of an early childhood trauma. Working with a shaman, she felt supported to discover the wounds that...

How Humans Heal

I believe it is essential for each of you to know your stress type.    That is one of the five stress types I have identified in my clinical experience and research.     These stress types are based on cortisol levels – measured at four different times of day in urine or saliva – and adrenaline (norepinephrine and epinephrine) levels.     These tests are not done in a standard doctor’s appointment. And they are not covered by insurance. Currently, these tests are available through my office for patients and program participants.    ...

How Humans Heal

After growing up with chronic skin issues, my friend Dr. Trevor Cates [@thespadr] healed her skin by taking a holistic approach. And she found herself wondering – “Why wasn’t holistic medicine presented from the beginning?”    This inspired her to become a naturopathic doctor and to specialize in helping people to understand that our skin is actually a magic mirror!     That is to say, our skin is an outer reflection of our overall health. And the way to help our skin is not just by what we put on it, but by balancing from within.    Common skin...

#105 Taming the Vagus Nerve with Dr. Doni show art #105 Taming the Vagus Nerve with Dr. Doni

How Humans Heal

The vagus nerve is the longest nerve in our bodies, connecting our brain to our digestion and vice versa. It manages signaling for bodily functions, so we don’t have to think about them! It handles digesting food, breathing, heart rate, and more.     Here’s the key, the vagus nerve does all of this as part of (75%) our parasympathetic nervous system. That is our “anti-stress” system.    The opposite of the parasympathetic response is the sympathetic response, which is what we think of as the fight or flight system.    When we are stressed, or exposed...

After growing up with chronic skin issues, my friend Dr. Trevor Cates [@thespadr] healed her skin by taking a holistic approach. And she found herself wondering – “Why wasn’t holistic medicine presented from the beginning?” 

 

This inspired her to become a naturopathic doctor and to specialize in helping people to understand that our skin is actually a magic mirror!  

 

That is to say, our skin is an outer reflection of our overall health. And the way to help our skin is not just by what we put on it, but by balancing from within. 

 

Common skin issues include:  

-Eczema 

-Acne 

-Dry skin 

-Aging skin prematurely 

 

-

 

While so many people and practitioners look at skin as something to cover up, or to use a topical (such as a steroid) to suppress, for Dr. Cates, these symptoms indicate that something is out of balance.  

 

In fact, hormone imbalance is one of the most common causes of skin issues. There are many hormones potentially involved. Not just sex hormones, but also cortisol, thyroid, melatonin, and insulin. Our hormones rule our health in a lot of ways, says Dr. Cates. 

 

 

In this episode, we discuss things you can do to start balancing hormones and healing your skin, including: 

 

-Avoid toxins and fragrance in your personal care products 

 

-Choose organic food 

 

-Get plenty of fiber and nutrients 

 

-Sleep and stress management 

 

 

Dr. Cates reminds us that most of what we put on our skin actually disrupts the pH and microbiome on the skin and contain endocrine disrupting chemicals. On average we use 9 personal care products per day, which can expose us to 126 ingredients that are not well regulated in the U.S.  

 

It is up to us to look for clean products and to make choices to support our health and our skin.

This led her to write her first book, Clean Skin from Within, and to create TheSpaDr skincare line. I have used her skincare line since it became available several years ago. 

 

Now Dr. Cates is focused on helping women to balance their hormones by getting more in harmony with our bodies based on the seasons.  

 

She covers how to do this in detail in her new book - Natural Beauty Reset – which is now available for preorder. And Dr. Cates’ also created a docuseries - Hormones, Health and Harmony - which you can sign up for here: https://www.sd44trk.com/9STNLS/2BGSTD/
