Helping the Elderly (and us Caretakers) Sleep

Posted on Updated on

As our population lives longer than ever before, many of us are becoming caretakers for our elderly.

As the brain ages, sleep lightens. When enough sleep is missed, the brain can become over stimulated. Then it becomes even more difficult to get needed rest.

In desperation, most of us tend to reach for either pharmaceutical drugs or natural remedies to help us sleep.

Some elderly people get overstimulated by that which should calm them down. It can be the first dose or an over accumulation of medications or supplements that they haven’t completely metabolized. Read the rest of this entry »

Amino Acids to Balance the Brain

Posted on Updated on

Can you balance your brain with nutrition? Well, science says yes. Our brains need specific nutrients for proper functioning. And malfunctioning brains need more.

At the center of the brain lies the maestro—the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus orchestrates the symphony of hormones produced by the neuro-immune-endocrine system. These “hormones” control all of your body’s functioning—digestion, detoxification, growth, repair, sleep, sex drive, reproduction, stress response, metabolism, body composition, immunity, healing, cognition, learning and memory.

The hypothalamus also controls the amino acids that the rest of the brain uses to function. And most people do not get the proper nutrition to supply the brain with what it needs for optimal function. That’s one of the reasons antidepressants, anti-anxiety and memory enhancing drugs are so commonly prescribed today. Read the rest of this entry »

Tap into your Genetic Potential

Posted on

So you think you’re stuck with what you’re born with? Not so.

Our genetic potential has barely been tapped. Most of us only use about 30% of our DNA. What do I mean by that? Well, when scientists finally decoded DNA in 2000 they found that less than one third of our genetic material was being expressed. The rest they called junk. We have since found out that the rest of the “unexpressed DNA” is not junk.

Think of holiday lights taken out of storage. A tangled mess you plug in and only 1/3 of the lights are on. Now with a little work, you can disentangle the lights and figure out which bulb needs tightening or replaced and viola, they all work. Well, same with our DNA. The secret is how to tap into to our highest potential. Read the rest of this entry »

The Male Brain and Hormones

Posted on

Is Male Behavior affected by Hormones?

Of course! Any woman knows that. Men are as affected by their hormones as we women are affected by ours. Yet it takes a study from Cambridge University to prove to the world of powerful men that indeed, their behavior is affected by hormones.

What’s most interesting is that this recent study looked at not male athletic or sexual performance, but how testosterone levels affect financial decisions.

In today’s world where the alpha male is not judged as much by his brawn but by his brains (or at least his ability to make money), these findings are quite significant. The study found that the higher the morning levels of testosterone were, the more money made that day. Read the rest of this entry »

Four Books

Posted on Updated on

Guest Writer: Melissa

Did you know Deborah has written four books and has more within her?

Her work of historical fiction would surprise you in the accuracy of events. Inspired by all six senses, she dreamt and heard details anthropologists were just discovering. She credits this to divine inspiration from very busy and talkative spirits. All fiction writers have argumentative characters that tell us how how to behave. But it’s a little more pressing when they are hanging around you in a way you can sense.

That book is the delightful “LoveDance“. You will never look at christian history the same way again.

How Hormones Control Everything

Posted on Updated on

 



In this introduction to the power of hormones, we first learn how east meets west in Deborah’s DMAR pyramid of health. But then we see how powerful hormones are, you just need to understand where they fit in.

The Nuero-immune-endocrine system, mentioned at the top of the pyramid, describes your full set of hormones – all controlled by the hypothalamus! But what is it?

It’s a long word so let’s break it down. The nuero part has to do with your brain. (IE the stuff Nueroscience explores) There are lots of hormones that influence your brain, and even how you think! Are you hungry? Maybe your leptin is at play.

The immune system we are all too familiar with, but did you know part of its system involves hormones? The adrenal glands have their say, which is why you often get sick when you’re stressed!

And last but certainly not least is the endocrine system itself. The word might not be as familiar as the first two, but the endocrine system produces all the famous hormones, like the ones related to sex steroids, mood, metabolism, and sleep. If you’ve heard of melatonin you have heard of one of the products of the endocrine system.

If you have already watched the video it’s worth another glance to understand how huge our hormones are.

We have so many different kinds of hormones at work, dancing with your DNA for your health!

Healing Transformations

Posted on Updated on

2017 started off with a bang. So much change in so short a time. When change happens this quickly it can cause physical symptoms.

You might notice changes in sleep patterns. You may experience anxiety or depression, foggy thinking, low energy. You may experience the stress of some crazy events in the world.

What was once true seems to shifting. Everything changes. Are you ready for a big transformation?

In 1997 I decided to leave conventional medicine and go out on my own to start my own integrative health care practice. It’s been a journey and now I have come full circle. Ironic, since I named my practice—Full Circle Family Health. I wanted to get back to the root of health care, to be able to practice the art of healing, to use my scientific training to become a medical detective, to uncover the root of dis-ease, to find alternative therapies when allopathic medicine could not heal or was not the patient’s choice. And I did. I created a holistic health care practice that focused on individualized therapy for each patient by merging the science of medicine with the art of healing. Read the rest of this entry »
