That’s what host Christi Cass is trying to promote in her Sexy Summit, how to stay sexy when we’re in a constant fight or flight process in our stressed-out environment. I even mentioned that Viagra fails women because men don’t bother with foreplay. And in a stressed-out world, readily accessible pornography and sex hook-up apps on smart phones further erode romance.
On the physical level, we talked about minerals and how they play a huge part in the rehabilitation of our hormones. The three major hormone systems in the body: adrenals, thyroid and sex hormones, I refer to as a three-legged stool. When one of the legs of the stool is shortened, it automatically affects the other two.
The standard treatment for thyroid, even for natural medicine practitioners, is to give thyroid replacement therapy. It may be the more natural form of Armour thyroid, but it’s still treating with hormones instead of treating the reason the thyroid became weakened in the first place. In my experience, most low thyroid conditions are caused by mineral deficiency. Treating with ReMag and ReMyte, you have the nine minerals necessary for the creation, conversion, activation and transport of thyroid hormones: These include: iodine, selenium, zinc, molybdenum, boron, copper, chromium, manganese and magnesium.
It’s usually agreed that the most common reasons for adrenal fatigue and dysfunction are poor diet, mineral deficiency, intense emotional stress, chronic inflammation and an underactive thyroid. But what’s causing the inflammation and underactive thyroid, and what diet is feeding into the problem? I say it’s magnesium deficiency and yeast toxins that cause inflammation in the body.
Diet, antibiotics and cortisol from acute and chronic emotional stress causes yeast overgrowth. There are 178 different yeast toxins that are produced by yeast in their life cycle. These toxins are absorbed into the bloodstream and lead to a chronic inflammatory state that can cause arthritis, chronic fatigue and pain. Magnesium (ReMag) and molybdenum (in ReMyte) help detoxify yeast toxins. Certain yeast toxins can directly block thyroid, adrenal and sex hormone function. The best anti-inflammatory agent available to the body is magnesium. When magnesium is depleted because of being overused, adrenal fatigue symptoms continue unabated.
The treatment for adrenal fatigue begins with sodium, which is vitally important for proper adrenal function. If your adrenal glands are weak or depleted as indicated by exhaustion, low blood pressure and chronic stress, there is a combined sodium and magnesium depletion. If you start taking large doses of magnesium without replacing sodium, you may feel even worse. I recommend 1/8-1/4 tsp of sea salt in every pint of drinking water. How much water? Half your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of water.
