Show Notes:

 

02:17 Dr. Finker’s Journey: When Dr. Finker was a child, she developed a serious case of asthma. The MD put her on theophylline, a form of speed. Her parents found a doctor that treated asthma naturally, with dietary changes. Her asthma disappeared and never returned.

03:24 Mold Sensitivity: If a patient comes to see her with asthma and their significant other also have asthma, they check for mold. When you clean mold with bleach, mycotoxins can escape into the air. Get a professional opinion.

05:29 Fibroids: Fibroids are common. Treatment depends upon location and size. They are related to hormonal imbalances. Dr. Finker does a complete blood and urine hormone workup. Often estrogen is high in comparison to progesterone, creating a state of estrogen dominance. When estrogen levels drop with menopause, often fibroids disappear. Estrogen is a pro-growth hormone.

07:13 Estrogen Dominance: We are swimming in a sea of estrogen. Male sperm counts have gone down significantly and will continue to do so if we do not eliminate endocrine disruptors from our environment. Everyone is not high in estrogen, it is the ratio of estrogen to progesterone. When women are under stress, we tend make cortisol in lieu of progesterone. Most of her patients don’t have enough progesterone to balance the estrogen.

09:59 Reducing Stress: Yoga is one of Dr. Finker’s favorite methods for putting the body into parasympathetic relax mode. Lifestyle changes, journaling, gardening, or tai chi help.

11:01 Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: This is different from fibroids. There is usually cyst formation on the ovaries. It can cause problems with insulin metabolism and blood sugar. It can cause an increase in testosterone levels. Those with higher testosterone levels also tend to have gut bacteria imbalances and yeast overgrowth. Eliminating or markedly decreasing the consumption of grains is helpful in treating PCOS. Fibroids can be seen on an ultrasound as well as cysts on the ovaries in PCOS. About 60% of the time, Dr. Finker finds that patients will have both issues.

14:01 Hair Loss: Prevalence of hair loss in women is increasing. Androgens increase testosterone/DHA and can be increased with high insulin, candida overgrowth, or constipation. With constipation, hormones are being reabsorbed. Stress and not eating enough fats shift hormone ratios.

16:12 Fertility Issues: She looks at all of the hormones. Stress negatively impacts the production of progesterone and this the most common trigger that Dr. Finker sees in her fertility patients.

17:01 Progesterone: It means pro-gestation. Progesterone is needed for gestation. It is a biological check to make sure that women would not conceive under duress.

18:28 Menopause: Taking a high dose of estrogen during menopause may alleviate symptoms, but does not fix the problem. The problem may or may not be low estrogen. Perhaps it is low progesterone or testosterone levels.

19:28 Hormone Testing: Dr. Finker looks at  wole blood hormone levels, sex hormone binding globulins, FSH, LH, progesterone, free testosterone, DHEA, and estradiol. Urine testing shows how the hormones are being broken down. It gives a closer look at ratios. It is a 24 hour collection. She uses Meridian Valley Lab. She looks at both blood and urine tests.

21:14 Controversial Foods: Stay away from food items that are controversial, like soy.  Canola oil is also controversial. Use olive oil. Research shows that GMOs are problematic.  GMOs cause gut imbalances.

26:06 Grains and Sugar: If we can keep our fasting blood glucose at about 85, we will live longer, have fewer health issues, and look younger.  Spiking blood sugar can cause diabetes. Stay away from sugar and grains to maintain blood sugar.

28:09 Common Traits of Successful Patients: Exercise is a common denominator. Ballroom dancing is one of the best things we can do to help preserve our memory as we age. Healthy people in their 70s and 80s have close family and friends. They are exercising and still working. Retired patients tend to be stressed out.

31:11 Blood Sugar Ranges: Blood test ranges are looking for pathology, not maintaining health.

32:14 Raw Honey: In small doses, unprocessed raw honey, has minerals, contains bee pollen, acts like an antioxidant, and is antimicrobial. It is still a sugar, so only consume small amounts. Local raw honey can help with seasonal allergies and asthma.

34:31 Lifestyle Changes: Add a lifestyle change into your daily routine. We have forgotten how to relax. Lifestyle changes are even more important than dietary changes and supplements. Dr. Finker recommends HeartMath. If you have blood sugar issues, you might have a more difficult time achieving the coherent state.

37:58 Dr. Finker’s Favorite Herb or Botanical: Theanine is her favorite supplement. It is for stress management. Most of us respond well to it. It quiets the mind a little and increases cognitive function. Theanine can also improve the body’s immune system, blood sugar and is an antioxidant/anti-cancer.

41:24 Dr. Finker’s Elevator Speech: Gain an understanding of how what we eat effects our bodies. Many of us still do not understand that what we eat can cause us to be sick.
