Overweight and obesity are increasing at an alarming rate in he United States. Increases in obesity and overweight have occurred across virtually all ethnic, racial and socioeconomic populations and all age groups. The combined prevalence of overweight and obesity is 70.7 percent according to the CDC
Overall, over two-thirds of all adults are overweight or obese. Over three hundred thousand preventable deaths occur each year as complications of being overweight. Being overweight increases risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and many types of cancer. In fact, a weight gain of twenty pounds or more from age 18 through midlife can double a woman’s risk of breast cancer.

Cleansing and detoxification of the colon is a popular topic. When combined with the poor digestion of most people who don’t eat a good diet, many people feel stopped up and feel lousy. If you’re going to do a cleanse or detox, do it safely and in a timely fashion. We present three different ways you can do a cleanse over a weekend. They’re all effective. They all work. They don’t require any unusual herbs or time at a spa.
There are several dietary supplements that can help during a cleanse; A probiotic with a prebiotic, both soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, and if you eat during the cleanse, a broad-spectrum digestive enzyme.
The American Medical Association has stated that all Americans should supplement. More specifically, Dr. Wilson believes that no one can get optimal nutrition from foods alone. To supplement properly, you must know what your body needs as well as what supplements are actually giving you what your body needs. Dr. Wilson has spoken to audiences of thousands on this topic and can help you to design a personalized program for your optimal health.
Did you know that skin is the largest organ in your body? That means that not only does your skin keep the inside in and the outside out, but the skin also performs vital functions like producing Vitamin D to help keep your bones healthy and strong. “Across the skin” (topically) is also a great way to deliver medicines.
In addition, strong healthy skin will make you look and feel younger. Proper daily skin care is essential and easy once you know what to do. Did you know that each night that you do not remove your make-up can age your skin as much as 21 days? Do you know the importance of using SPF daily in your skin care regimen? That skin care must be from the inside as well as the outside?
Not all skin care is created equal and not everyone needs the same skin care regimen. Proper daily skin care will decrease lines and wrinkles, increase hydration, and make the skin feel and act younger. All this will happen without expensive or painful surgery. Complete our free skin care evaluation to determine the age of your skin based on your daily habits as well as exploring the optimal skin care regimen for you. Also ask if you qualify for discounts on S.A.M.M. (skin analyzing magnify machine) to find the perfect regimen for you.
Dr Wilson also helps to keep your skin smooth and wrinkle free with treatments of Botox and Dysport.
There has been controversy on the topic of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for the last 15 years. Negative attitudes have dominated the media since 2002. Combine this with the fact that the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study that was halted eight years ago because of health risks, hormonal therapy options caused a confusion for women trying to make an informed decisions on their health.
Lets shed a little light on the confusion. First, the WHI study and the subsequent media reports about HRT are based on Commercial HRT only. They are based on findings about the combination of conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone (called PremPro). Thus, when you hear about HRT in the news, this is what they are referring to.
There are alternatives. Over-the-counter, there are products containing phytoestrogens, and topical products containing low-dose progesterone. These will provide temporary relief in PMS, perimenopausal, and menopausal symptoms. Long-term benefits and improved health can be achieved through Bio-Equivalent Hormone Replacement Therapy, a prescription alternative.
What is Bioidentical (Bio-equivalent) Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-equivalent Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a prescription alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy (conjugated estrogens, medroxyprogesterone, etc.). Bioidentical medications are plant-derived, and chemically changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what your body would naturally produce. BHRT is customizeable; in other words, it can be adjusted to fit your needs, unlike conventional HRT, which has a few standard dosage strengths.
What are the goals of BHRT?
Alleviate symptoms caused by the natural decrease in hormone production in the body
Reestablish the individual’s hormonal balance
Provide protective benefits that were originally provided by the body’s naturally occurring hormones
What are the benefits of BHRT?
BHRT offers a number of health-related benefits:
Helps in the prevention of Osteoporosis and restoration of bone strength
Protection against heart disease and stroke
Reduced hot flashes and reduced vaginal dryness
Muscle mass and strength are better maintained
Improvement in cholesterol levels
Risk of depression reduced
Reduced risk of breast and endometrial cancer
Prevention of senility and Alzheimer’s Disease
Mood, concentration, and memory become better
Far fewer unwanted effects than synthetic hormones
Are you always tired, no matter how much sleep you get? Do you feel like your brain is in a fog? Are you cold when others aren’t? Do you find that you can’t lose or keep weight off despite dieting? You may be suffering from a thyroid deficiency, or hypothyroidism. We can help.
Your thyroid gland is the master control gland of your body and your metabolism. If it is underactive, you will feel like you are constantly dragging.
If you have low thyroid hormones, you are suffering from a thyroid deficiency, or hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is extremely common, but often goes undetected because standard blood tests miss the majority of low thyroid patients. According to Dr Daryl Turner, up to 60% of those with an under active thyroid may have labs that are in the “normal range”. Specifically, many labs still use an outdated range for thyroid hormones.
Another important factor is that less than 80% of thyroid hormone is in the blood, most is in the muscle and in the brain and nervous system. For this reason, blood tests may reveal only a small part of the picture and for appropriate candidates, a reflex test know as Thyroflex is a much needed addition to standard testing and evaluation
Even when a patient is diagnosed with hypothyroidism, most doctors treat the disorder improperly or suboptimally with T4-only medications such as Synthroid, Levoxyl, or Levothyroxine. This treatment can cause the patient’s lab results to look “normal” while the patient still feels exhausted or cannot lose weight.
Proper thyroid hormone levels aren’t important only for your energy and metabolism. A number of health conditions are shown to be caused or associated with low tissue thyroid levels, including diabetes, insulin resistance, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, PMS, autoimmune disease, iron deficiency, chronic stress, and chronic pain.
Fortunately, there is hope, and you can feel better. Dr. Wilson is specially trained to recognize and treat many under active thyroid disorders. By using cutting-edge testing and integrative treatment solutions, we can help you regain the bounce in your step and feel like yourself again.
What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?
Fatigue and an inability to lose weight are two symptoms commonly experienced by most hypothyroid patients. But there is a wide range of symptoms that occur when the metabolism slows down due to low thyroid hormones.
Sensitivity to cold
Muscle or joint aches
Brain fog, including poor memory and poor concentration
Brittle hair and nails
Shortness of breath (often called “air hunger”)
Sensitivity to cold
Significantly calloused heels
Chronic yeast infections
Low libido (sex drive)
What tests do I need?
The TSH (or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is the test that most doctors use to screen for hypothyroidism. But this test actually measures how well the pituitary is “talking” to the thyroid gland, rather than measuring actual thyroid hormones or, more importantly, the level of thyroid activity in the body . Patients are often frustrated because their TSH test results are “normal,” and their physicians tell them nothing is wrong. This standard testing does not catch 80% of patients who have low thyroid hormone levels. Contact us today so that you can get the proper testing to evaluate the optimal approach for you
Are you tired of feeling tired? Do you still feel sluggish even after a good night’s rest? Many of us go through our daily activities feeling stressed, overwhelmed, fatigued, irritable, and experiencing mental fog. These symptoms could indicate that your adrenal glands may not be performing well enough to keep your body functioning at a healthy level. A person diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, as well as, women experiencing perimenopause and menopause, can be particularly susceptible to adrenal imbalances.
Many health experts (including Dr. James Wilson, a prominent naturopath whose entire practice has been devoted to Adrenal Fatigue) believe approximately 80% of the population suffer from some level of adrenal insufficiency, yet are only diagnosed when an extreme deficiency (Addison’s disease) or overproduction (Cushing’s disease) of the adrenal hormones are found while performing routine blood work. This means that many people are trying to manage their lives and daily activities with malfunctioning adrenal glands, which goes undetected, not meeting the level of severity to diagnose disease. When your adrenal glands are being stressed, an inflammatory response can occur throughout the entire body.
What Are Adrenal Glands?
The adrenal (suprarenal) glands sit directly on top of your kidneys. They produce more than 150 different hormones which include adrenaline (epinephrine), cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and many more. Cortisol is the most important anti-stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Cortisol, otherwise known as the “fight or flight” hormone, is secreted within the body when a major stressor occurs or a threat of impending harm is experienced.
Major functions of the adrenal glands which protect our bodies include:
normalizes blood sugar
provides anti-inflammatory response
regulates immune system
balances blood pressure
improves tolerance of stress
What Causes Adrenal Fatigue?
In today’s world, every day life can be downright stressful! Adrenal dysfunction is common and many of us move through life not feeling as good as we could. Here are some common causes and triggers we encounter which can cause adrenal fatigue.
Imagine starting to run as fast as you can down a local street. After a few hundreds yards (or feet!), you will begin to tire and be unable to run as fast as you could when you started. If your adrenal is constantly stressed by all of the bad (and good) things of life, it is no longer able to keep up with the demand for hormones and the output of these hormones is actually decreased. This can impact your well being in many ways.
What Are the Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue?
Symptoms of adrenal fatigue can progress very slowly and are often ignored, until a stressful event such as illness or an accident occurs, causing symptoms to worsen.
Symptoms you may be experiencing indicating poor adrenal function could be:
Inability to handle stress
Decreased sex drive
Chronic or worsening fatigue, not relieved by adequate sleep or rest
Exhausted after exercise (feeling wiped out)
Dizzy when standing (low blood pressure)

Inability to tolerate thyroid replacement therapy
How Is Adrenal Fatigue Diagnosed?
The ACTH stimulation test is most commonly used for diagnosing adrenal insufficiency. This is done by measuring the levels of cortisol in your blood and urine before and after receiving an injection containing a synthetic form of adrenocorticotropic hormone(ACTH). This is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol.This is a complicated and potentially dangerous test that is performed only at major medical centers. Dr James Wilson has found that a presumptive diagnosis can be made without such extensive testing and that diagnosis can be easily be made in many cases through simple outpatient testing.
