woman on scale(NaturalHealth365) Sitting on top of each kidney, the adrenals are responsible for producing four main hormones – catecholamines, aldosterone, cortisol and androgens – which help to deal with everything from stressful situations, digestion, gender traits to blood pressure regulation. Gaining weight usually involves overactive adrenals but, this can be avoided, even reversed, without the need for surgery or extreme diets.

Don’t become a victim of adrenal stress. Most people, living in the ‘modern’ world, are being hurt by nutritional deficiencies and too many environmental toxins. But, the fact remains, you CAN naturally restore hormonal function, lose weight and avoid years of suffering. Want to learn more? Don’t miss the next NaturalNews Talk Hour.

The costs associated with obesity are staggering

In January 2012, according to a study published in the Journal of Health Economics, the estimated annual healthcare costs of obesity-related illnesses were calculated to be $190.2 billion or nearly 21% of annual medical spending in the United States. By the way, childhood obesity alone is responsible for $14 billion in direct medical costs.

Lead author John Cawley, a Professor in the Department of Policy Analysis and Management, and the Department of Economics, at Cornell University, said:

“Obesity raises the risk of cancer, stroke, heart attack and diabetes. For any type of surgery, there are complications with anesthesia, with healing [for the obese]. … Obesity raises the costs of treating almost any medical condition. It adds up very quickly.”

The problem here is that economists are great at calculating numbers and conventional medicine is great at ‘identifying’ or ‘treating’ disease – but the obesity epidemic remains unresolved. Even if you’re NOT obese – this is a problem that affects all of us because obesity raises Medicaid costs – which results in higher taxes for society.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Dr. Christianson and Jonathan Landsman take a closer look at how to solve the obesity epidemic by improving hormone function and, specifically, adrenal health.

The 3 BIGGEST myths associated with adrenal health

Myth #1: Your adrenals are “fatigued.” More accurately, we need to understand that emotional and physical stress can cause insomnia, anxiety, weight gain, heart disease and adrenal stress – not fatigue. In truth, the adrenal glands work with several other glands, in what’s called the HPA (Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal) axis – which helps to regulate our energy levels and metabolism.

When our hormones are in balance – we feel great. But, hormonal imbalances usually occur due to work-related issues; eating too many processed foods, EMF pollution plus poor sleeping habits – which lead to chronic inflammation, weight gain and disease.

Myth #2: Your adrenal glands need a drug. If that were true, then adrenal ‘fatigue’ – often diagnosed due to low cortisol levels – would simply be fixed by taking some herbs and cortisol pills. But, in most cases, health-related problems are NOT resolved this way.

Besides a more natural diet, one of the best ways to restore adrenal function is to get 30 to 60 minutes of sunlight exposure – every day. Limit your exposure to artificial lights (i.e. computers or T.V.) – especially 1 – 2 hours before bedtime.

Myth #3: Adrenal stress is just part of life. Put nicely, that’s a bunch of baloney! A healthy diet is one of the best ways to effectively restore hormonal balance and eliminate the threat of stress-related disorders.

Oddly enough, just the simple act of thoroughly chewing your food can have a tremendous ability to calm the nervous system. And, on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Christianson will reveal how to achieve optimal hormonal function.

    Thanks for the show Jonathan. I learn something new and helpful every week

  • Logan Nagei

    This was a show that doctors needed to listen to. Since they are trained in a cultural and traditional way they have no idea what contributes to weight gain. It isn’t as simple as telling patients to eat less.

    It’s clear that those seeking to shed some pounds need more that a simple statement. Overweight individuals themselves are not seeing much results, so the advice on the show was right on.

  • Sherri O’Neil

    Weight loss needs a new approach. It was good to hear validated methods to shed the pounds. Thanks for a really important and informative show.
