Oral Contraceptives: A Risk Factor to Gallbladder Disorders

Written by Lauren Hayden. Posted in All, Detoxification, Digestive Support, Educational Series, Endocrine Support, Nutritional Support

Share

Gallbladder disease affects an estimated 20 million Americans and is now the leading surgical procedure in the United States (Hoffman, 2014). Research as far back as 1975 reported on the necessity of administering Vitamin B6 to prevent excretion of tryptophan metabolites resulting from use of oral contraceptives in woman. More than 99 percent of women age 15-44 have used some form of contraceptive (Guttmacher, 2014) and oral contraceptives account for an estimated 17 percent, about 10 million American woman. Recent studies now link oral contraceptives as the leading risk factor in gallbladder disease in woman who have ever used oral contraceptives. Nutritional scientists identify vitamin B6 deficiencies as the principle cause of gallbladder disorders associated with oral contraceptive use. Supplementation with live source B6 is essential for the prevention of gallbladder disorders and disease in woman taking oral contraceptives.

GLUTEN FREE STAMP

Are you ready to begin your journey toward radiant health and wellness this holiday season and continue throughout the New Year?

Health and nutrition experts agree that adopting a gluten free lifestyle is not just a fad, it is a necessity. Research on the ill effects of gluten is overwhelming. The Center for Disease Control considers gluten a public health threat responsible for most childhood allergies citing over 75 percent of all grain products are made from wheat (CDC, 2013). Gluten is becoming easier to avoid, as escalating public request for gluten free choices are emerging. Hopefully we will soon see fresh gluten free bread and pizza at Whole Foods, college campuses and on restaurant menus as this new lifestyle trend becomes contagious.

Nutrition and Detoxification Therapies for the Treatment of Thyroid Disease

Written by Lauren Hayden. Posted in All, Detoxification, Endocrine Support, Nutritional Support, Uncategorized

Introduction

The World Health Organization recognizes diseases of the endocrine system as being part of a worldwide disease epidemic (Sears, 2011). It is not uncommon for teenagers to be diagnosed with thyroid disorders. Environmental toxicity has only recently, in 2013, been confirmed as a leading cause of thyroid and many other diseases. Research demonstrates that endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC) alter proper thyroid function via multiple mechanisms resulting in autoimmune disease. This development explains why conventional and holistic treatments for hormone replacement therapies in autoimmune diseases including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Graves Disease have not been effective and often result in surgical removal of the gland or treatment with radioactive iodine. Research now shows that the thyroid gland is being over stimulated in a chronic positive feedback mechanism because the thyroid hormones are not reaching or being received and utilized by the target cell receptors to perform their programmed function.
