What comes to your mind when I say “Anti-aging, or Menopause?” 

Chances are you have a negative bias thought pattern or the thought instantly arrives on how you are fearful of these two milestones in a womens life.  

Could the growing epidemic of chronic illnesses such as  autoimmune disease, chron’s disease or anxiety/depression be an expression of cultural patterning? 

Many women have been socialized to believe that their sensuality is wrong, their emotions are inappropriate, and their physical body is shameful or to be hidden - let alone feeling invisible as they age. 

What if you were presented the applied science to PROVE that your inner and outer ecosystem of beliefs and biological health are areas you can shift so that you can instantly step into a brighter, beautiful, and richer life - more than you could have ever believed? 

 

Well, you all know I’m here with you to radically shift the conversation of beauty and wellness as we awaken and move and choose a new reality - and that’s what we’re here to explore today with my guest Dr Martinez - and if you’re a outlier, you’ll really want to tap into this episode.  

 

 

 

 

What you’ll learn:

What is biocognitive science?

Cave Consciousness - how our terrains are changing via attachments, relationships, and our view of how things will happen in our world. 
How “breaking bread” with family is bringing back our family cultures through rituals post-Covid

Mission/Vision creates a cultural language, but usually, it inherits productivity and stress. The CEO sets up the policy/perception for what is communicated.  What are the archetypes you are playing out in your life?

80/20 rule - How Biocognition brings the far-out “woo woo” and reductionist framing (genetics) into balance.

Longevity is culturally learned, and the causes of health are inherited 

How our immune system is not just a protector, but it responds to the cultural premises we learn to perceive the world. 

The cost of a hypervigilant nervous system and how to “teach to unlearn” the event that caused it to be held in the body. 

The chemicals produced from a hot flash cause women shame, which activates inflammation 

South American menopausal women use the word “shame” when having a hot flash - releasing interleukins 2 inflammation. 

Asia sees menopause as their “second spring” and they see themselves as becoming a role model to younger women and great wisdom. 

The 3 main ways that cultures will would us through bio-symbolic words that trigger an immune reaction. 

SHAME:   (honor is the antidote) - hot from embarrassment
BETRAYAL:   (  loyalty is the  antidote) - hot from anger
ABANDONMENT: (commitment is the antidote) - cold and constricting

Within 15 minutes the IGA’s Immune boosters increase by going back and pulling in a memory from the past that created joy and happiness.  

Assertiveness takes to decision. Know and help others know the boundaries. 

Bio-information is measured with molecules that causes inflammation. 

 

The power of ritual versus regimes

Negative beliefs send neurologic and immune signals to the body that create the inflammatory response and inhibit healing. 

How the cultural perception of time duration affects longevity 

___

About Dr. Martinez

Dr. Martinez is a clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in how cultural beliefs affect health and longevity. He proposes, based on credible research, that longevity is learned and the causes of health are inherited. 

He has studied healthy centenarians worldwide and found that only 20% can be attributed to genetics - the rest is related to how they live and the cultural beliefs they share. 

He is the author of the bestselling book, The MindBody Code: How to Change the Beliefs that Limit Your Health, Longevity, and Success  - which teaches his theory and practice of biocognitive science to the general public.

In this incredible episode, Dr. Martinez joins us to explore how epigenetics, beliefs, and consciousness may be the path to a long and well-lived life in today’s transitioning world. 

And of course, we also will get a refreshing perspective on how women can take back their power as they age.

(Corneo-what?)  The “First Do No Harm” Approach to Anti-Aging 

One aspect of Evoq’s skin philosophy stems from the research from Professor Albert Kligman who  is widely regarded as the father of cosmeceuticals, yet he was also well known for his pioneering work on corneotherapy.   

Corneotherapy is the care and treatment of the stratum corneum, the skin’s topmost layer and its principal barrier defence.  The stratum corneum is responsible for environmental protection while preventing water loss through the skin.  

An event that occurs on its surface can initiate a domino effect that sends ripples throughout the rest of the skin.  It is well-established that the skin contains entire sets of barrier defence systems – all interconnected, co-regulated, and interdependent – like cogwheels in a machine.  If one barrier function is compromised, other systems are also affected.  

As such, we treat it with respect by recommending a slower approach to skin correction.  We do not promote aggressive modalities or radical procedures that shock the skin into a temporary state of repair to restore appearance (such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or improper use of lasers).  

Corneotherapy takes the science of cosmeceuticals one step further. It could be argued that corneotherapy is the skin care concept of the future.  It’s where science meets beauty.  Another way of thinking of it is that it provides the link between dermatology and cosmetics.

An understanding of the role of the stratum corneum is key to the principles of corneotherapy. Essentially skin cannot be corrected if the stratum corneum is not in equilibrium. Many clinicians use treatments on their clients without first ascertaining the level of cellular damage or the condition of the bi-layers of the skin.  This can result in expensive, repeat treatments that do not obtain the desired results or may even fail completely.

Corneotherapy approaches skin care differently.  Before any treatment or products are prescribed, a thorough examination of the condition of the bi-layers of the skin is undertaken. It is important during this process not to upset the acid mantle, but rather give it what it needs to maintain harmony. 

Then, and only then, can you give it the ‘super food’ via advanced pure products, that it needs.

Corneotherapy treatment is centred on recovery of the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum, once seen as a layer of ‘dead’ cells whose sole function was to provide an impermeable barrier, has suddenly come ‘alive’.  While the stratum corneum consists of cells not capable of dividing and multiplying, it is far from being static tissue. Rather, it is dynamic and complex. 

When the skin’s barrier is disrupted, it is no longer protected from environmental stressors and pollution and loses its ability to protect and defend itself. If perfumes, emulsifiers and mineral oils are added to skin care products, the skin can quickly become further compromised.

Among the obviously harmful substances are surfactants, emulsifiers, preservatives and allergenic perfume substances.

 

Kligman had a clever way of describing corneotherapy as being like an “outside- in” therapy, where “outside” is the stratum corneum and “in” are the therapeutic effects starting in the stratum corneum and working their way into the deeper layers.

As Dr Kligman once said: “Whenever you see inflamed skin, regardless of its cause, it means that the stratum corneum is leaky and permeable. But, if you repair the stratum corneum, that tells the underlying tissues that they don’t have to keep reacting like there’s danger in the environment.”  

At Evoq - I couldn’t agree more and believe we have developed a unique and effective range of treatments and products to restore balance to the stratum corneum and promote ongoing healthy, energetic balanced skin.

Corneotherapy and Aging

“A curious thing about ageing is that everyone knows what it looks like, but no one seems to know what it is.”

The skin barrier

Maintaining a healthy and functioning barrier provides overall protection against dehydration, the penetration of germs, allergens, irritants, oxidative stress, and excessive ultra violet radiation. Application of products based on the theories of corneotherapy supports a gradual healing of any inflammation and other conditions that impair the barrier function. As stated earlier, there is a lessening of the cell function in aging skin. Nevertheless, we know that we can make both external and internal adjustments to alter the affects of the aging process. This indeed supports cell functioning and repair with improved immune response and rebuilding of the skin barrier.

Supportive regenerating ingredients – outside to inside therapy

Skin care products should be formulated with mimetic agents that compliment the skin. The dermal membrane structure in the barrier layers of the stratum corneum consists of ceramides, cholesterol and palmitic acid.6 They are naturally found in the skin bilayers that are responsible for maintaining the natural moisturizing factors (NMF) and continued regenerating of a strong skin defence. A resilient barrier increases the probability that the underlying skin structures are able to function correctly. Based on the research of Professor A. Kligman, moisturizing substances may contribute to stabilising the skin barrier leading to greater results.6 He called it Corneotherapy: “outside to inside” therapy.

“Whenever you see inflamed skin, regardless of cause, the stratum corneum is leaky and permeable. But, if you repair the stratum corneum, that tells the underlying tissues that they don’t have to keep reacting like there’s danger in the environment.” 

Skin requires supporting substances for regeneration. In ageing skin this becomes a key factor in compensating for the biological changes that occur within the cells during each phase of aging. A key to corneotherapy is to recognize and eliminate substances that can inhibit/interfere with this regeneration process.

It's the worst!  Watching your hair slide down the shower drain or clumping up on your brush is a horrible feeling, especially for women!

Our hair is connected to our identity, our youth, and our health.

While it’s natural for some women to experience hair loss at certain times in their menstrual cycles or times of the year, hair loss is also caused by specific health conditions including a thyroid imbalance.

So the question here is....

Why does a thyroid imbalance cause thinning hair?

Your hair normally grows in a healthy cyclical pattern with most of the hair follicles growing while only a small number are “resting.”

With a thyroid imbalance, this cycle can be thrown off, resulting in more hair follicles “resting” than growing — and more hair falling out.

Hair loss is a very common symptom of a thyroid imbalance.

But thyroid imbalances often arise slowly and remain unnoticed by women and their doctors in the early phases.

Even with a lab test, your doctor may say everything is fine with your thyroid, even though you strongly suspect that something is wrong.

This is because standard labs have a very wide range for what is “normal” in terms of thyroid test results.

So how do you know if your hair loss is connected to a thyroid disorder?

So here are 5 signs and symptoms your hair loss is connected to a thyroid disorder

1. Thinning eyebrows

Hypothyroidism - which is an underactive thyroid  often causes general hair loss as well as thinning of the outer third of the eyebrows.

We don’t know exactly why the eyebrow is targeted in thyroid disorders, but this is a good indicator that your thyroid hormones may be low.

2. Hair that is brittle, dry, and breaking easily.

Dry, brittle hair is also connected to low thyroid function. And research published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism finds that thyroid hormones increase growth and color in hair.

Low thyroid hormone can lead to the early release of the hair shaft and root, as well as premature gray or white hair.

3. Feeling exhausted all the time, even after 8 hours of sleep.

The thyroid is the master of our metabolism, so it affects the way we use and store energy.

With low thyroid hormone, metabolism slows down. This can often lead to persistent fatigue as well as weight gain

4. Puffiness in the face

Many people with hypothyroidism have an excess of a compound called mucin.

Mucin is part of our connective tissue and is present in blood vessels and cells all over the body. It absorbs water and may cause excess water retention in an individual with an underactive thyroid imbalance.

5. Yellowing of the palms of your hands. Yellowing of the skin on your hands can happen with a thyroid imbalance due a build-up of carotene in your blood. Hypothyroidism can slow the conversion of carotene to vitamin A.

If you think your hair loss might be connected to a thyroid imbalance, begin supporting your thyroid — and your hair — naturally.

Adaptogens are the safest and best way to help the body cope with stress.  Other products like CBD can also help.

I loved this hormone supporting episode with Dr. Anna Garret, who is here help Savvy Sisters like us - bring more Harmony to our Hormones!  I think we hit it all on stress, mindfulness, perimenopause, and bioidentical hormone confusion -and safety.  Like Anna, I’m incredibly motivated in helping women better grasp and understand how hormone imbalances and menopause affect our physical and mental health.  

Like with most things, it’s critical to connect our own dots so we can understand the relationship between our hormones and time of life. Did you know 70% of women experience Estrogen Dominance at some point in their lives and 90% don’t realize that’s what they have it?  Or that estrogen therapy decreases hip fracture by 55%?

 

I know you’ve talked to “experts” about your symptoms, but always end up feeling more confused than when you started. Dive in with Anna and I as we talk about great lifestyle tips and how it’s never too early or late to start addressing our stress, sleep and lifestyle to support a quality of life we all wish for.

Did you know that by interacting with the receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD CAN actually alleviate many conditions women navigate every day: mood swings, cramps, anxiety, stress, breast tenderness, bloating, fatigue, cravings… and hormone imbalance!

In one study, they found that the effects of CBD on plasma prolactin, growth hormones, and cortisol, CBD helped to regulate cortisol secretion!

In another study, researchers said:  cannabinoid exposure could have profound effects on the function of the reproductive system, lactation, metabolism, and the endocrine stress axis.” 

Hemp is naturally packed with omega fatty acids and high in gamma-linolenic acid which is known to help regulate hormones. 

Our hormones are more imbalanced now than ever before, because of the food we eat and our modern environment impacting hormones, libido, and mood.

SO  HOW CBD OIL CAN AFFECT PMS SYMPTOMS

When it comes to reducing the common symptoms of PMS, evidence for the use of CBD is much stronger. 

(And more positive!)

Inflammation is the primary driver behind the pain and discomfort many women experience around the start of their period. And there are several studies that show CBD has a positive effect on reducing systemic inflammation.

CBD Oil may also be able to help reduce those mood swings, irritability, and anxiety that make getting our periods that difficult to endure.

CBD has been shown to act on various receptors in the brain to produce calming, restful, and anti-anxiety effects in animal models. And while we can’t directly translate the results of animal studies to humans, research like this can give us an idea of how CBD might affect our own moods.

Keeping the endocannabinoid system balanced is essential. 

I believe in taking CBD every day for this reason, just as you would a multivitamin. 

But....I also suggest Working to uncover the underlying cause of why you’re experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance in the first place will be so much more valuable than stopping at simply masking the symptoms.

And once you know why those symptoms are happening, you’ll be more empowered to make the lifestyle changes required to help resolve those symptoms at the root.

Today’s energetic discussion is with Tom Paladino and Scalar Energy and how we can help beam some high vibing healing to our HORMONES!

SO DOPE! The time of energy healing is NOW, and this process is proving, just that.

Listen to Tom and my first interview where we discussed the foundation of Scalar energy, but today we’ll go deeper on exactly how this unique process can help heal our health - and our hormones.

Tom and I discuss how his female Hormone Program is designed to assemble female hormones inside each cell of your body, and how reducing pathogens directly affects our hormones, which are directly linked to hair loss.

Aging is due to the lack of hormones, so this is a no brainer ladies. Could it really be the “pill” weave been looking for? Ok, I’ll call it the beam of LIGHT we have been looking for, and its been underneath our nose all this time!

Schools are organised in precisely the exact same way in the least nations around the globe. The school or the educational institutions can allow the child to learn new abilities and learn how to interact with folks of different social backgrounds paper writings. Pupils have to be granted the opportunity. So, rather than simply enjoying the roles, they finally have the opportunity to take the duties of the true world. Many students decide to study at a community college so as to finish the initial two decades of prerequisite courses. It's extremely standard for American students to switch majors earlier or later in their undergraduate studies.

Innovation is remarkable when it occurs which is why it is known as innovation. It cannot be a goal because I feel it is a natural outcome of several circumstances. It cannot be a grade. No matter your opinion if you believe innovation is falling with hardly any hope or you have got the optimistic mindset which the moment is now you're pushing for invention.

Make sure to stay to the end, and we’ll be giving an incredible free opportunity for your to increase your hormonal health.

Did you know that hugging can boost oxytocin and energizing testosterone levels?

Or that regular intercourse with someone you love and feel connected to is one of the BEST things you can do to preserve brain health and prevent dementia?

You’ll be blown away by this episode as we discuss healthy intimacy = hormonal health & vital longevity.

Dr. Lyndsey Berkson is one of the most fabulous, smart, and strong guests we’ve hosted on the Awaken Beauty show.

Dr. Berkson is an incredible female voice that is trumpeting truth and clarity for thousands of women as well as to Practitioners in the medical field around cutting edge truths on hormones, connectivity and removing toxicity in our everyday lives.

I’ve followed Dr. Lindsey’s research for many years and she’s influenced my business ethos behind my organic salon after reading the pioneered book at its time: “The Hormone Deception.” I’ve discussed many times about the importance of how not just the levels of our hormones, but how the conversation of our hormones help us function and age optimally - or dysfunction and break us down.

As infants, we require physical touch to ensure healthy development and brain maturation. Adults also require intimacy and connection to be mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically healthy. Sadly, the truth is so many of us feel alone and disconnected (hello technology).

Get this ...a loving hug can increase oxytocin and decrease cortisol, deep conversations can be neuroprotective, and a true friend (in-person) connection can alter not just our emotional life but our biology.

Join the round table of women as we dive into the role between intimacy, environmental castration and how to save your endocrine system.

About Linsdey:
My guest is Dr. Lindsey Berkson has been a leader in functional medicine and women’s health care for decades. She was a scholar at an estrogen think tank at Tulane University where she worked with the top scientists that have discovered how hormones function and dysfunction.

Lindsey is now a professor and mentor for physicians, pharmacists and other health care professionals within continuing education courses on hormones, gastroenterology (and the gut-hormone connection), nutrition and the environment.

Dr. Berkson has authored 21 books and hosts The Dr. Berkson’s Best Health Radio. She had breast cancer 24 years ago and has made “remission” her “mission”. Dr. Berkson now specializes, with science-based functional medicine tools, in working with breast cancer survivors to do the same.

It’s important to understand how the human body processes CBD. Essentially, our body breaks CBD down through metabolization, just like other oral drugs by entering the digestive tract. Here, they absorb through the stomach lining into the hepatic portal system.
