Bogged Down by Fatigue Or Outright Exhaustion?

07/12/2017 - 7:07pm

Have you checked your adrenals? As a physician, I am frequently reminded of just how fragile our bodies are to fall ill. At the same time, I am amazed at our ability to recover once the root cause is detected and corrected. A concerned husband recently asked if I would meet with his wife, Patty. “Normally a fun-loving woman, fully engaged in life, she had become listless, moody, thrown ‘out-of-sorts’ by petty things for months now.” She had seen her primary care physician who diagnosed depression and placed her on an antidepressant. When she entered my office, she fell into a chair as if she w...

Weight Loss Struggles?

Let’s take a closer look at your thyroid...beyond the routine screening tests! When Ms. M. L., a 45-year-old mother of two, came to The Renewal Point for a consult, she asked if I could help her with a frustrating problem. “I’m so depressed and fatigued that I don’t feel like stepping outside my house. I feel cold all the time. I’ve gained twenty pounds around my middle in the last few months and haven’t changed anything. I exercise, eat well, and take supplements. What do you think is going on?  I have all the symptoms of Hypothyroidism, yet my doctor tells me my lab tests are all normal...

What Every Woman Should Know About The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Estrogens

04/26/2017 - 3:06pm

 “The ‘facts’ that most women and clinicians consider in making the decision to use or not to use hormone replacement therapy are frequently wrong or incorrectly applied,” says Professor Robert D. Langer, one of the principle investigators for the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) Study. (1) For instance, have you or your doctor considered balancing the Estrone levels and, more importantly, their inflammatory and carcinogenic forms? When Charlotte P. came to The Renewal Point, she was “frustrated and scared.” At only 55 years-old, with three children, she felt like she was falling apart. “E...

Can Balancing Testosterone Improve Mental Function in Women?

03/25/2017 - 1:19pm

When you think about testosterone, do you consider it for brain health in women and wonder about the power of balancing it? At age 53, Laura had it all together: two kids in college, married to the love of her life, and a successful real estate practice. Then menopause struck, and her world came tumbling down: sleep disturbance left her tired throughout most of the day with little energy for practically anything. Hot flashes were a constant bother, and she became irritated over even the most minor disturbance. As her desire for sex and love diminished to almost nothing, it caused marital probl...

Karenia Hysteria - It's Not Just Dead Fish

02/22/2017 - 12:20pm

How Harmful Algal Blooms Affect Humans “What’s going on with me?” I woke up several mornings ago, with a swimmy-like headache, ringing in the ears, dizziness, extreme fatigue, brain fog and muscular weakness. While I generally wake up full of ‘vim and vigor,’ it felt like I had been run over by a Mack truck. “A virus,” I first thought. But, there was no fever and the symptoms felt strangely familiar to the ones my wife and I experienced from black mold toxicity ten years ago. “There is no black mold in our new home,” I reassured myself. That same morning, our medical office phone began ringing...

12/21/2016 - 1:45pm

It's time to lose fat AND get your 'Mojo' back! Just what is visceral fat and why is it so dangerous? Most people think of fat as something we would rather have less of than more, but nevertheless, relatively harmless. However, did you know that those fats which are stored around your organs, called visceral fats, are actually deadly, and could contribute to: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, depression, cancer, sleep disorders, sexual dysfunction and many other evil maladies.

Letter to Santa ~ 'Tis the Season to Get Healthy!

11/30/2016 - 1:45pm

Dear Santa, I don’t know if you can remember me or not. It’s been ‘several years’ since I have written you – Susan McPherson from Sarasota, Florida, AKA Susie Lee Herndon from Stuttgart, Arkansas back then. First, I want to apologize for not staying in touch. I guess the transition from a little girl to a college student then to a married woman with a family of my own has kept me preoccupied. Back then, my Christmas wish list was pretty simple: A talking Crissy doll, a pink Free Spirit bike, and a Mr. Potato Head would have made my day. Life back then seemed much more carefree. Suffice it to s...

Are You Suffering in Silence? Let's Talk About Sex (or lack thereof)...

10/26/2016 - 4:01pm

"My libido has gone down so much", "I'm not reaching orgasm", "Sex is painful"...these are just a few of the statements we commonly hear from new patients at The Renewal Point.             Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) affects 48.2% of women but many of us have never heard of it.[i]  We constantly hear of Viagra and Erectile Dysfunction through TV commercials and magazine ads, yet a healthy sex life is just as important for women and as it is for men.  And, while it's proven that women don't think about sex as much as men, it c...

Is Your Money Going Down the Drain?

10/03/2016 - 12:54pm

With your skin being the largest organ of your body, it certainly justifies putting a fair amount of time and money into it ~ but unsafe, ineffective, and wrong products are big money wasters for a lot of people. We find that skin health money wasters fall into these 4 categories: 1) Harmful Products: Too many products out there today contain harsh chemicals and irritants.  And, while they may provide a quick fix, they are only going to make your skin and body suffer in the long run.  This means more and more treatments and money to repair the skin down the road. 2) Ineffective Produ...
