Episode Description

Are you always on the run? Feeling like stress is causing chaos and miscommunications? Do you know hormones do not work smoothly together when survival is the only instinct in charge? If you want to feel ease instead of overwhelming stress, you’ll want to hear Dr. Lu as she discusses the role of the adrenal glands in our survival instinct and its affect on how we push through, or relax and enjoy, each and every day. She will also talk about the critical thyroid gland and why nearly 80% of Americans may have a dysfunction in this gland. Sex and sex hormones may also be in chaos, she says, which affects us in the bedroom as well as in every other area of our lives. But all of us can function at our very best, even under stress, and life can truly be lived with joy, love and peace. Dr. Lu will share her time-tested secrets and simple nutritional strategies to awaken, cleanse and nourish this natural balance, helping everyone to live a vibrant life at any age.

Genes raise the gun and environmental factors pull the trigger. These are turbulent times in human history: we live in a time of revolutionary changes, advances, insights, and discoveries. We also live in a time of unprecedented stress and a multitude of environmental alterations, both of which influence the way our physical, mental, and emotional body grow and age. As a result, our key systems, including the neuroendocrine, immune, digestive, cardiovascular, and metabolic systems, are all enduring less than optimal functionality. Chronic diseases are becoming the norm of our society. Dr. Lu will discuss in lay terms how stress and toxins influence the function of the whole body, mechanisms our body has adapted to meet the demands of this new environment, and essential strategies that can save our lives and help our bodies return to vibrant living. Once we discover the root sources of disease and health, we can follow a simple path towards abundant health, peace, and clarity.
