Based on Dr. Turner ND’s The Hormone Diet which was recently awarded the 69th on The CBC Top Selling Books of the Decade for Canada’s 150 and The New York Times Bestseller, The Supercharged Hormone Diet, #29 of 36 coveted spots on The US News Best Diets List and has been on the list for several years running now.
Our individualized wellness treatment paradigm is based on Dr. Turner ND’s New York Times Bestselling books. We begin the process of restoring the foundation of your health and hormonal balance using the philosophies of The Hormone Diet and The Supercharged Hormone Diet, and by tackling the five most common hormonal imbalances that disrupt our health and aging:
- Excess insulin
- Excess cortisol
- Excess harmful estrogen
- Chronic inflammation (not a hormone but it impacts all our hormones)
- Low/sluggish thyroid activity (hypothyroidism)
Why these five imbalances?
Although insulin plays an essential role in healthy body function, an excess of it will certainly make you fat, hungry and constantly experiencing cravings. Too much insulin not only encourages your body to store unused glucose as fat, but it also blocks the use of stored fat as an energy source. For these reasons, an abnormally high insulin level makes losing fat, especially around the abdomen, next to impossible. Similarly, an imbalance of cortisol can become extremely destructive to your metabolism, body composition and wellness – it disrupts sleep, suppresses the thyroid and causes belly fat, even if you are otherwise thin. Chronic inflammation has recently become recognized as the root cause of obesity and unhealthy aging, often leading to digestive disorders, allergies, autoimmune disease, arthritis, asthma, eczema, acne, abdominal fat, headaches, depression and sinus disorders. Toxic estrogen either from the environment or internally produced by our body is now recognized as a primary cause of obesity and cancer in both men and women. Lastly, an imbalance of any one of these will impede thyroid hormone activity – the master of your metabolic rate, energy, cholesterol balance, weight loss, digestion, fertility and healthy skin, hair and nails.
In Clear Medicine Wellness, you will address the major causes of hormone imbalance, including:
- Poor digestion and liver function (thyroid hormones activate here)
- Sleep deprivation and stress (both cause high cortisol, which suppresses thyroid)
- Food sensitivities (gluten and other allergens cause thyroid hormone disruption)
- Excess toxic estrogen – a factor for men (any male with belly fat) and women (with PMS, bloating, excess body fat)
- Blood sugar and insulin imbalance
- Nutrient deficiencies (vitamin D3, iodine, etc.)
- Body pH Imbalance (an acidic pH influences how your hormones work)
- The wrong workout (Did you know the wrong workout can suppress your thyroid hormone and increase cortisol for 24 hours after your workout session? This is not the optimal desired effect you are looking for from your exercise efforts!)
Our treatment approach has helped thousands of patients optimize their hormones, improve their body composition and restore total health.
