When you don’t optimally circulate blood through your liver your cells will let you know.
Short on time? Check out my infographic at the end of this email.
Mostly by causing you to have…
- temperature regulation issues
- hair loss
- weight gain
- cellulite formation
- dry skin
- slow workout recovery
- inflamed joints
- increased food and environmental sensitivities
- changes in the periods
These things happen because the “you’re safe” message never comes to back from brain to body.
So cortisol keeps pumping.
Blood sugar increases over time.
Cortisone can’t keep inflammation in check to counter the long term elevated cortisol.
Anxiety and/or depression flare up as the increased liver inflammation transfers to brain inflammation as glutathione, the body’s natural antioxidant, is depleted.
Blood flow to the gut is slowed causing reduced stomach acid, enzymes and digestion suffers.
Parasites, bacteria, mold and other organisms take over the gut and body.
Habits to cope with stress become engrained causing you to consume convenience foods loaded with hormone disrupting chemicals and plastic.
Breathing changes to shallow and short leading to higher blood pressure and heart rate.
Slowly these symptoms of excess cortisol mess with liver, gut, brain and circulatory health.
For some it takes decades while others it’s one trauma to set things off.
Phase two of my hormone imbalance progression theory is when decreased circulation of blood and nutrients mess with organ and cell function.
What happens at this time?
- the liver it’s decreases detox processes and causes increased toxin storage, fatty liver & artery placing
- decreased blood flow to the gut messes with digestion
- key nutrients like amino acids, iron, B12, folate and more are not optimally absorbed
- the decreased gut function leads to constipation, dysbiosis, leaky gut, parasite infections and increased inflammatory estrogen re-absorption in the colon
- increased sugars in blood, scrape the arteries and cause plaque build up
- decreased nitric oxide and production due to poor breathing cause fatigue, high blood pressure and increased heart rate
- brain inflammation due to low glutathione cause anxiety, depression, OCD, ADD and lowered HRV over time
- nerve communication is off with decreased absorption of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride, phosphorus) and ions (magnesium, calcium, iodine)
- increased swelling in the tissues
- increased pain in the joints and muscles
All of these long term circulatory issues have an impact on the cells.
Ion movement as well as communication between cells becomes impaired.
Signs of fatigue and extreme exhaustion develop.
When stress gets to the point it’s affecting the cells it’s time for a major intervention.
On Friday I’ll be talking about phase three of my hormone imbalance progression theory.
Phase three is all about the cells and things like cellular hypothyroidism and insulin resistance.
Here’s to your health,
