Medicine World Enterprises, LLC – Stress and Hormones Affect Weight More Than Previously Understood

Medicine World Enterprises, LLC – Stress and Hormones Affect Weight More Than Previously Understood

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

Very few professionals would argue with the proposition that diet and exercise combine to represent the fundamental components of weight management. However, it turns out that two other factors, stress and hormones contribute significantly. They appear to interact and contribute to the ways that most people process food and benefit from exercise. The good news is that both are manageable to a degree that has significant bearing on weight control.

Dr. Veronica Anderson has analyzed data from the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, and other reliable sources. She recognizes that the general categories of food consumption and exercise have multiple subcategories including genetics, hormonal issues, diet quality, sleep, and stress. The public least understands stress and hormones, but they offer everyone the best opportunity to make adjustments.

The way Dr. Veronica describes the connection is that stress is the human body’s natural response to perceived threats. An example she uses is that you suddenly realize your toddler has wandered away from your sight at a park playground. A region of the brain known as the hypothalamus stimulates adrenal glands that release adrenaline and cortisol. The adrenaline raises your heart rate, blood pressure, and energy. It is cortisol, the number one stress hormone, which increases the sugar supply in the bloodstream (leading to weight gain), inhibits the immune system, and suppresses digestion. Other by-products include fear, mood disruptions, and reduced motivation.

In the example, as soon as you notice your child emerge from a play structure, the hormone levels normalize and everything else self regulates once again. However, today’s world has a way of maintaining elevated levels of stress beyond normal parameters. Long-term stress response, even at the relatively low levels we experience in competitive working environments, leads to heart disease, sleep disorders, depression, memory impairment, and weight gain.

Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has increased the problem since it has resulted in a reduction in reimbursements to physicians who deal with these issues. Proactive health care practitioners such as Dr. Veronica advise against taking pills that only mask the symptoms. Rather, she recommends managing stress with her 5 Pillars of Health program that include: 1-Detoxification, 2-Nutrition, 3-Fitness, 4-Nervous System Maintenance, and 5-Hormonal Regulation.

While stress reduction strategies such as meditation, yoga, and other relaxation techniques play a role, Dr. Veronica notes the long-term solutions to uncontrollable weight extend beyond those. She adds, “You cannot just quit your job or get a divorce.” She instructs people that they must learn about the cycle of stress and sustainable methods to break it.

ZICAM® Launches New Kids’ Homeopathic Cold Medicine

(PRWEB) November 20, 2014

In another major expansion of its cold remedy product line, Bridgewater, N.J. based Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. has launched Zicam Kids, a cold product specifically designed to provide symptom relief for children ages 6 – 11. This great tasting grape soft chew delivers safe and effective relief of nasal congestion, runny nose and scratchy throat based on traditional homeopathic practice. As a new form to the pediatric category, these delicious and easy-to-take soft chews mean that parents and kids have a better way to feel better during cold season.

To highlight the new launch, Zicam has introduced a new hero to the pediatric cough/cold aisle, Z-Boy. Z-Boy zooms across the Zicam Kids packaging, representing how every sick kid would rather feel. He is also making appearances on Facebook to spread his tasty message of symptom relief to social media. With cold season fast approaching and parents wanting safe alternatives to traditional OTC medications for children, Zicam Kids couldn’t come at a better time.

It’s estimated that American children suffer three to eight colds per year, and in a recent survey, moms identified runny noses and scratchy throats as the top symptoms they spot when their child is coming down with a cold. “Zicam Kids gives mom or dad a great-tasting option for treating a kid’s cold the minute the symptoms start,” says M’lou Arnett, CEO of Matrixx. “Zicam Kids’ great tasting grape chews are safe and effective, but even better, its zinc based, homeopathic formula won’t cause drowsiness or other side effects that worry parents and can side line kids,” she added.

Zicam Kids is in major drug stores now, and, while supplies last, free samples of Zicam Kids have been placed in various top-selling Zicam RAPIDMELTS ® packages. “With active moms representing a large percentage of our consumers, we thought there would be no better way to introduce Zicam Kids than to include samples in a Zicam product that moms are already using for their own colds” commented Lori Norian, VP of Marketing of Zicam.
