“Adrenaline” and “cortisol” are the two hormones that regulate the sympathetic nervous system in response to stress, and they directly influence mood, energy, sleep, and mental functioning.

5 Ways to Build Strong Bones (Without Dairy): Dr. Randolph Explains... March 23, 2017

Bone is living tissue with complex nutritional needs. This living tissue is also constantly being regenerated. Cells called "osteoclasts" break down the bone tissue, and the "osteoblast" cells build it up again.

Bones can eventually become so fragile and porous that even bending over or coughing may cause a fracture. More...

Wait -- what is Menopause again? Menopause, famously known as “The Change,” marks the end of the reproductive years, typically around age 51. A woman is “officially” in Menopause once two thresholds are met: (1) she has not had a period for at least twelve months, and (2) her bloodwork reflects a permanent down-shift in hormone levels.

Can Progesterone Protect YOU from Heart Disease? February 09, 2017

You may have heard that after women enter menopause, their risk of heart disease rises sharply. Why? Mainstream medical thinking has pointed to the significant drop in estrogen as a possible cause for an increase in LDL (sometime called the "bad" cholesterol) and drop in HDL (the "good cholesterol). For many years it was believed that estrogen was the key to heart health -- but newer research shows that estrogen...

Do YOU Have Estrogen Dominance? Find Out with Our Self-Assessment January 18, 2017

One of the most common (yet severely underdiagnosed) types of hormone imbalance is "estrogen dominance." Dr. Randolph and our clinical team firmly believe that estrogen dominance is an unrecognized epidemic in modern life! In women, estrogen and progesterone operate like sides of a seesaw, shifting up and down during a woman's monthly cycle. When progesterone gets low, that "side" of the seesaw hits the ground, and negative symptoms arise: weight gain, poor sleep, fatigue,...
