The Hormone Elixir

THE "PAUSE" BLOG


"My Purpose in life is to make my "Third Act" of life AWESOME."

"My God-given purpose is to teach what I have learned to others."



Hormone Hack - Maca (The Hormone Elixer) Many may be wondering why I didn't tell you about the menopause elixir earlier. Because Maca is a hit and miss, some of my clients have a life-changing experience when they use Maca, and others have negative experiences. Maca grows underground and looks like a turnip. Maca is a cruciferous vegetable so beware if you have sensitivities to cruciferous vegetables. HORMONE OPTIMIZER Maca has been shown to help with all three hormone levels of The Hormone Abyss.

  • The Ovarian Hormones,

  • The Thyroid Hormones.

  • The Adrenal Hormones.

What makes it a powerful hormone optimizer are the sterols it possesses. Sterols are biochemically related to our hormones, especially our ovarian hormones, estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Maca is estrogenic, but unlike the phytoestrogens found in soy, Maca does not mimic the ovarian hormones. But the sterols in Maca may increase the body's production of all ovarian hormones. Since Maca, most of the time, improves the symptoms of estrogen dominance; it appears to elevate progesterone more than estradiol. Where Maca causes a problem, it's because it stimulates estrogen production more than progesterone. But...I have found that adding Maca later in the HOPE program when inflammation has been reduced, it becomes more of a hormone balancer than a hormone im-balancer. SEX DRIVE IMPROVER Maca is known to enhance sexual desire and performance. Therefore, it has the nickname "Nature's Viagra." The chemical within Maca that is responsible for this is called endocannabinoid. This chemical stimulates the pleasure parts of our brain. In one study, the researchers found that Maca increased libido in women and aided a woman's ability to achieve orgasm.

ENERGY BOOSTER In ancient times, Maca was used to boost stamina and strength in a warrior before a battle. Many nutritionists often call Maca Peruvian Ginseng. I find using Maca at 3 PM helps relieve the mid-afternoon thyroid dip in energy.

MICROBIOME FOOD Maca is also great for your gut, which we cleanse, heal and restore in Phase Two of The HOPE Protocol. MACA is good for the gut because it is an excellent prebiotic. Maca is high in fiber that feeds the "good" bacteria.

HUNGER CONTROL

Maca's fibers are also an excellent satiation tool, which can reduce hunger. I find Maca to be especially helpful in taming the mid-afternoon between-meal hunger spike. Maca is also high in protein, so when you add Maca to a Protable Meal, which is already high in protein, your hunger will be reduced. As you have probably already discovered, protein is excellent at reducing cravings.

LIVER DETOXER

Maca also helps with liver detoxification because it contains sulfur. Sulfur is needed to make the mother of all antioxidants, glutathione. There is no better liver detoxifier than glutathione.

Do not take Maca if you suffer from hyperthyroid or estrogen-sensitive conditions, like estrogen receptor-positive breast, ovarian or uterine cancers, endometriosis, and uterine fibroids.

We use powder and begin with a teaspoon daily with breakfast for a week, and we always take it with food. If you prefer to use a capsule, I haven't seen any problems with them. Do not take Maca on an empty stomach.

If we have no adverse side effects after a week, we increase our intake to two teaspoons or two capsules. Below I have placed Amazon links is the Maca powder and capsules. We followed the directions on the bottle.

Do not take any supplement without first talking to your healthcare practitioner.
