To understand the many negative effects of an unbalanced hormone ratio -- the most common of which...

Perhaps you or someone you know has suffered from some of the following mild symptoms: fatigue, dry skin, weight gain, cold intolerance, depression, and poor memory. There are so many possible causes for these kinds of problems that it is easy to assume you're "just not getting enough sleep," or that you're "just feeling a little stressed." However, it could be a condition that is all-to-often overlooked: subclinical hypothyroidism (also called "mild...

Does Stress Impact Your Hormone Health? (Hint: It Does!) April 04, 2017

“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. The amount of each hormone your adrenal glands produce is related to the amount of stress you experience.

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. Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone tissue cannot keep up with the removal of old bone tissue. Bones can eventually become so fragile and porous that even bending over or coughing may cause a fracture. More...

Diagnosis: Menopause? Dr. Randolph Explains... March 07, 2017

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. The pituitary gland and the hypothalamus continue to produce hormones during Menopause, and...

But it needs support to function optimally. Balanced hormones and nutritional supplements can provide powerful brain support.Your brain is made up of trillions of nerve cells called neurons.

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,...

Many patients come to us with symptoms of hormone imbalance that also include mid-section weight gain. Estrogen dominance [read more HERE] is a common hormone imbalance that affects both women and men (as early as the 30s for women and the 40s for men) and causes those "love handles" to appear as you age.    Too much estrogen circulating in the body increases body fat, and fatty tissue (which contains an enzyme...
