Pregnenolone Hormone Testing

lrg_pr31

What if I told you there was a “fountain of youth” supplement that promotes mood and memory and improves energy levels?  Well, there is and it is called pregnenolone.  Pregnenolone is known as the mother hormone because it helps to make DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, and like those hormones, its levels decline with age.  By the age of 75, most people’s production of pregnenolone has dropped by 65% compared to when they were 35.  Pregnenolone is extremely important for memory, so it is often replaced.  Like DHEA, pregnenolone can be obtained without a prescription in the United States, however patients should be encouraged not to take it unless they have sub-optimal pregnenolone blood levels.  Pregnenolone balances the nervous system, increases resistance to stress, improves physical and mental energy, enhances nerve transmission and memory, and reduces pain and inflammation!  Yes, it does all of those things!  Pregnenolone is used in the treatment of arthritis, depression, memory loss, fatigue, and moodiness. You can have too much pregnenolone, just like any other hormone, and too much causes acne and drowsiness.

For those who want to start the upcoming new year with more energy, vitality, and optimum health, I am offering Pregnenolone Hormone testing at a special rate.  Optimum Health Options uses Quest Diagnostics as our lab service provider, so you can have this done at your local Quest Diagnostics!  The usual price is $129, but until the end of the year, I am offering this testing for $109!

DHEA and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

75026

People with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) often feel so tired that they cannot do even half of their normal daily activities. The feeling does not go away, even with more rest. Twice as many women as men are diagnosed with CFS, and it is more common in people over age 40. It may last a month, a couple of years, or many years. Sometimes symptoms come and go.

Although researchers are not sure what causes CFS, there are ways to manage symptoms so you can still do the things you enjoy.

One way is by using a supplement known as DHEA, a hormone produced by the body that may improve energy levels. Your body uses DHEA to make testosterone and estrogen. It is truly a hormone rather than a supplement.

DHEA levels normally decline with age. Patients often feel much better when their DHEA levels are brought to the mid-normal range consistent with a 29 year old.

As too high a level can cause acne or darkening of facial hair, it is good to have the blood levels monitored by a Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Wellness Coach. Many products have no effect on raising low blood levels (i.e., do not contain DHEA as they claim), so the brand pictured above is recommended.

For adult males above the age of 19, the recommended daily dosage of DHEA is 50 mg, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. For females above the age of 19, the recommended daily dosage is 25 mg. The center recommends that females with anorexia and adrenal insufficiency take 50 mg of the hormone daily.

Will you give DHEA a trial to see if it improves your energy levels?
