Understand more about the chemistry of your moods, learn about defining your Endo-type, and listen to their natural methods for getting back to feeling good!

Segment 1: Hormone Imbalance and How It Leads You to Feel Fat, Fuzzy or Frazzled
Describing what they believe to be an "epidemic," Dr. Rich Shames and Karilee Shames, Ph.D., R.N., talk about the many low-level, but persistent, medical issues that are plaguing modern humans, but which don’t seem to be showing up on usual medical test results. Issues such as insomnia, dry skin, jumpiness, irritability, sluggishness, overweight and exhaustion, they say, can result from imbalances of sex, adrenal and thyroid imbalances. They and their book aims to empower the medical consumer in this area.

Segment 2: How Hormones Affect Emotions for Both Men and Women
Describing the three "endo-types," the Drs. Shames illustrate how depression, fuzzy thinking, post-partum depression, difficult menopause, and a host of other emotions result from hormone imbalance. How to move from "Fat, Fuzzy or Frazzled" to "Fit, Focused and Fabulous"!

Segment 3: Stress and Environmental Pollution Affect Hormones

Drawing on a Segment 1, our guests talk about the effects of t.v. news and violent movies on our hormone-producing glands, most notably, the Adrenal glands. A discussion of recommended solutions, such as psychotherapy, vitamins, nutraceuticals, meditation and table salt–all playing a part in restoring a person’s hormone balance in our hormone-challenging world.
