Many men, women and children experience symptoms of over-active bladder, but as we age, it seems to get worse for some! People don't realize how foods, stress, hormones, and pathogens can irritate and damage the bladder causing urgency issues.

1) Foods:  Some food sensitivities manifest as frequent urination. It could be wheat, dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, or even a vegetable like cauliflower. Some people are sensitive to the sulfur/cabbage family of vegetables. Also, coffee and teas are very dehydrating and a natural diuretic. Herbal teas have grasses and herbs in them that can be part of the problem. The best thing to do is an elimination diet. Start with some of the most inflammatory foods such as wheat, dairy, soy and sugar. Then, see if the frequency lessens.  Listen to your body and keep a journal to see how your body reacts to certain foods and beverages you consume. Support from a nutritional counselor is beneficial as well to find out more about your sensitivities....

Certified Nutritional Counselor Lee Rossano, of Lake Orion's Advanced Nutritional Solutions, has found that Adrenal Fatigue is becoming more common, with many physicians ignoring the adrenals.

"As a result," she says, "it is not generally treated until in the final stages of failure, such as with the emergence of Addison's Disease. Patients arrive feeling overwhelmed by their lives and edgy, irritable, depressed or anxious, unaware that the adrenals are the culprit. Possible root causes could include viruses, out-of-balance sex hormones and diets high in processed foods."

I was always so driven and motivated until one day I wasn’t. Getting out of bed felt like my greatest task of the day and I wondered if I would ever have my drive and energy back. Until I healed my adrenals, no amount of coffee or caffeine would provide the energy I was used to. I began to implement relaxing activities into my nighttime routine, started eating a whole foods diet and taking my personalized supplemen...

Inflammation

Dr. William Davis’ book ‘Wheat Belly’ explains what happen in your body when you eat gluten. Your body reacts with inflammatory markers such as elevated LDL cholesterol, and antibodies on the thyroid.

Other signs of gluten intolerance are:

  • Bloating and Gas

  • Diarrhea, Constipation and Smelly Feces

  • Abdominal Pains

  • Headaches

  • Feeling Tired

  • Skin Problems

  • Depression

  • Iron deficiency

  • Anxiety

  • Autoimmune conditions

  • Joint and muscle pains

  • Brain fog

  • Numbness in legs or arms

  • Interferes with absorption of nutrients

Glandular Functions

The number one gland in the body that is affected by gluten is the Thyroid. In recent years wheat has been bio-engineered to contain much more gluten according to Dr Davis. Some experts link the higher gluten content in the GMO wheat to Hashimoto’s and Graves disease. Gluten has also been linked to thyroid nodules. When the thyroid is stressed the other glands react like the adrenals. TO muc...

In order to lose weight and to keep it off you have to ‘Flip the Switch’ - moving your body from a state of fat storage to fat loss. We all want to get rid of that stubborn belly fat and now we can! Over the last 16 years I have heard many clients complain of weight loss issues and I have found a breakthrough in weight loss due to two important hormones – Leptin and Ghrelin. The more out of balance these hormones are the more difficult it will be to lose weight.

Bad Hormone

Ghrelin is the hormone responsible for making you hungry. You can blame Ghrelin for the hunger pangs, late night munchies and mid-day snacks. Not to mention Ghrelin is released whenever the body senses a stressful situation – which is why many people can find themselves stress/emotional eating.  The more stress the more cortisol is produced which ultimately leads to adrenal fatigue! When you focus on lowering Ghrelin it will help reduce hunger and cravings and release stored body fat. 

Good Hormone

Leptin acts as a...
