Signs of Low Testosterone ( and yes woman have this too)

Low Testosterone Symptoms are real for both men and women.

Low sex drive, low sex performance, hair loss, fatigue, muscle loss, increased body fat, mood disorders, fogginess, sleep problems. Low T is also linked to obesity, diabetes, atherosclerosis , male breasts and hot flashes .

.

In men it is known as Andropause and is the equivalent to women's menopause when their sex hormones decrease.

.

If your in your 90's not such a big deal to have these symptoms, however, if you are in your 30's, 40's, 50' even your 60's its not ok. Beginning around the age of 30, hormones start to drop by 1% to 3% each year, contributing to a litany of symptoms and a slow, steady deterioration in health..

.

With low T, Men Tend to be more estrogenic ( belly out front, man boobs) and women tend to get more androgenic ( facial hair, oily, acne)

.

Are you consuming enough FAT?

.

Why? Because hormones are made from FAT. If your fat consumption is not adequate for your body your hormones will also be low. ( want to know how much fat you should be consuming, check out my nutrition plan option)

.

So what can you do?

.

Run a lab test.

Test Options:

  • DUTCH TEST, Salvia Test or Blood Test

Find out where your Testosterone levels should and ought to be.

Just because hormones decline with age doesn't mean we also have to settle for low hormone levels. 

.

Why I added Nutrition Coaching into my Practice?

Why I added Nutrition Coaching into my Practice?

Part of addressing the root cause, is investigating ones DIET.

.

Even health food can cause us to gain weight! WHAT?😩

.

For most of my years I was able to maintain a steady weight, than came changes, moving countries, moving into a new city,  new home which all was great, BUT I UNDERESTIMATED the power of what STRESS can do to the body. ESPECIALLY when you IGNORE symptoms. Your body was designed to give you signals, which are in the form of symptoms. 

.

I discovered that my hormones were imbalanced, I had HPA dysfunction  (what is known amongst circles is adrenal fatigue), insulin resistant ( your body stores this as fat) and my gut needed to be eradicated from pathogens😲 By ignoring the physical symptoms my body was desperately trying to tell me I ran my system into the DITCH!

.

I also found myself weighing more than I was comfortable with and we all have that set point which makes us comfortable.

.

So, what did I do? Yes, I took to more exercise and cut calories.... after being Paleo, Keto and doing lots of intermittent fasting and fasting I drove myself completely off the rails, not mention I was starving.

.

So, I decided to add in Nutrition Coaching into my practice to learn the science and APPLICATION ( sounds sorta silly but this is a big missing component these days).

.

What I discovered was, that there is a way to restore your metabolism and also rebuild your hormone profile while addressing the root causes with Nutrition that allows your body to heal. AND this is where the magic all happens!

.

So what does this mean?

.

It means that once you heal your metabolism, getting it fired back to where it is supposed to be, you can finally start achieving your body composition goals of not only becoming a happier, healthier you BUT also see some FAT LOSS.

.

Ever been in a position like me where you have tried to exercise, I mean seriously working your butt off,  ate clean whole foods and still not lost weight? And in fact gained weight? 

.

Yah, me to! And I can totally relate and tell you that it totally SUXKS! Talk about being frustrated😡.

.

The thing is you are fighting against your body, and no matter how hard you try using this above technique AND CUT CALORIES you will lose every time. HUH?

.

If this resonates with you, I would be happy to help you on your journey.🤗

What is Functional Diagnostic Nutrition?

Screen Shot 2018-05-18 at 10.05.51 AM.png

 

What kinda Work do I do

As a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner, I identify the root causes of conditions and health complaints. 🤓

I address the main pillars of health including, hormone, immune system, digestion, detoxification, energy production and the nervous system. 💯

I look to identify internal and external stressors that are causing malfunction and metabolic inefficiencies within your body.

This approach is meant to focus in on restoring proper function vs chasing symptoms.

I use diagnostic labs to identify underlying root causes.

Some common related symptoms that I commonly work with but not limited to:

• allergies

• acne, rosacea and other skin disorders

• blood sugar problems

• headaches, brain fog

• insomnia

• indigestion, bloating * fatigue, leathery

• inflammation, achy joints and muscles

• low sex drive, irregularly menstrual cycles, PMS

• depression and anxiety

• weight gain, weight loss

* food sensitivities

* anxiety, insomnia

I seek to uncover the root cause that is compromising normal function.

All sessions are conducted in a virtual setting making it easy to address your health concerns from the comfort of your home.
