Brain chemicals covertly direct female hormones, but their effects on behaviors, emotions, cognitive abilities and relationships can make us vulnerable. The more we become aware and understand these vulnerabilities, the more we can transform them to actually empower us… Marwa Azab has been interested in human behavior and why we do what we do since she was a child. Her interest compelled her to complete two advanced degrees in Psychology and a PhD in Neuroscience. She has been teaching in the Psychology, Biology and Human Development departments, presenting to various audiences ranging from first graders to seniors and is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post. Her approach to understanding any human behavior—or misbehavior—is unique because it is Gestalt. This interdisciplinary background allows her to intersect fields and come up with innovative ways to understand “why we do what we do”. She is a firm believer that it is at these intersection foci that creativity and novelty find fertile grounds. She practices this holistic approach in individual and group life-coaching.

Here are the 9 most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance that can negatively affect you. If you suspect that you have any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor immediately! The rhythm of life, with all its stresses and environmental problems, doesn’t let you fully take care of your physical health. Despite this fact, your body and the way you look may be sending you signals about major health concerns that need to be dealt with. We all want to look our best but this doesn’t necessarily have to involve overpriced salon services, cosmetics or exercise. Your own hormones can “speak” for themselves. The development of the human body greatly depends on the function of hormones. These tiny signaling molecules are responsible for our mood, emotions, behavior and even our looks. TIMESTAMPS Acne 1:07 Excess weight 1:47 Fatigue 2:32 Sweating 3:16 Dark circles under the eyes 3:53 Depression 4:39 Breast changes 5:24 Hair loss 5:59 Unwanted hair 6:37 SUMMARY - Outbreaks of acne can be the result of improper skin care, an unbalanced diet, or your menstrual cycle. However, if acne has become a consistent foe, it’s probably a symptom of a hormonal disorder. - Many people struggle with their weight their whole lives, resisting food cravings and doing exercise; others are thin without any particular effort. Hormone-related problems are most likely to be the culprit of this injustice. - Always feeling tired despite no changes in your habits or environment is a much more serious problem known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which can be a result of hormones that are off balance. - If you have fluctuations in your body temperature, the issue could be both neurological and hormonal. Again, contact a health professional if you feel like you’re experiencing these symptoms. - Chronic insomnia may be the result of testosterone insufficiency in men and progesterone insufficiency in women. The good news is that sleep deficiency due to hormonal imbalance can be cured! - Depression can be another symptom of fluctuating hormone levels. Anxiety and depression can occur just before a woman’s menstrual cycle, during pregnancy, and during menopause. If you’re having more frequent panic attacks and anxiety, talk to an endocrinologist. - Low levels of estrogen can make breast tissue less dense whereas excessively high levels of this hormone can cause lumps or cysts. If you notice any changes in your breasts or you feel any lumps in your breast tissue, consult a doctor immediately. - Excessive hair loss is one of the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Take control of your eyesight and headaches. Worsening vision and frequent headaches may signalize instability in the pituitary gland, the hormone epicenter. Don’t just give up and blame it on stress and hard work. Get yourself checked out! Taking care of your health should be top priority. Know your body and listen to the signals it’s sending to you so that you can be in tip-top shape.

Emotions And Their Effects On The Body http://drthomaslodi.com Emotions and their effects on the body are very real and can be very dangerous in terms of your health. So, how do emotions influence your health both positively as well as negatively? To best illustrate this, let me show you below an example of this. There are 2 systems in our body that control the way the body works, the nervous system which is the brain and also the peripheral nerves. The 2nd is the endocrine system which is the hormone system. These are both primary control mechanisms of the body which manage a great deal of the organ and cellular functioning. These 2 systems actually link with each other at a place in the brain called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus launches chemicals that stimulate the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is frequently referred to as a master gland of the body. As the master gland of the body, the pituitary gland informs the ovaries, testis, thyroid as well as adrenal glands what to do. Now, why don't we picture this, two thirty year old ladies become roommates. This was an outcome of one of them running an ad. It ends up they truly like each other and they get along effectively. And, within one to two months, they learn they are menstruating at the same time. Now, these ladies did not plan this, they really did not think or speak about it, it simply occurred. That's the power of the neuroendocrine axis. It's very subtle however it is an extremely real thing. We know that positive emotions promote our natural killer cells. Natural killer cells are lymphocytes which are a certain type of leukocyte. They eliminate cancer and virally infected cells and cells that have intracellular parasites. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKTjY73tu_19pvnSRPnACwXLsjiYo0FaY https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYu61175aI-xV-U4_vtGE5A/videos

Hank begins teaching you about your endocrine system by explaining how it uses glands to produce hormones. These hormones are either amino-acid based and water soluble, or steroidal and lipid-soluble, and may target many types of cells or just turn on specific ones.

Hormones are released by the endocrine glands. They move in our blood and influence the nervous system impacting behaviors and body functions such as emotions, reproduction system, hunger, moods etc. They are messengers and pass on messages from the brain to the body organs. Every gland produces a specific type of hormone which has a specific set of functions to perform in various organs.

Ever heard of dopamine? There's a good chance of hearing people talk about this chemical. It's typically known as the "feel good" neurotransmitter primarily because of its link to pleasure and reward responses. It's the chemical behind that's behind our dreams and deepest secrets. So what is Dopamine? Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that's synthesized in some regions of the brain from L-Dopa. Essentially, we produce this chemical when we consume foods that contain amino acids including tyrosine and phenylalanine. It's important to note that some symptoms are likely to occur when a person's levels become too high or low. High dopamine levels can lead to schizophrenia and cocaine addiction while low levels are associated with Parkinson's disease. But the big question is, "what are the effects of dopamine?" Join us as we explore just about everything you need to know! • Dopamine Boosts the Anticipation of Pleasure First off, whenever we come across a rewarding stimulus, the brain releases more dopamine and this pushes us to seek out the fun or pleasurable activity. For the most part, pleasurable experiences or moments like sex, games, eating tasty foods and even drugs can stimulate the release of dopamine. It's however important to note that dopamine doesn't mediate pleasure; instead, it enhances the expectation of pleasure in humans. The bottom line; you enjoy most of these pleasurable activities because of dopamine. • Dopamine Improves Memory and Learning The effect of dopamine in the brain helps with memory and learning. Essentially, dopamine is crucial for long-term memory storage and retrieval. What's more, this neurotransmitter reminds you of important events especially those that have motivational significance. It's also good to point out that Dopamine plays a big role in working memory; that's the capacity to use information from short-term memory to guide your actions. • Dopamine Increases Your Drive Also known as the "motivation molecule," dopamine gives us the motivational as well as the internal drive to do things. As we know, we usually do things because we find them to be worth it or rewarding. What you should know is that dopamine is the chemical that's responsible for your reward-seeking behavior — your drive is as a result of high dopamine levels. On the flip side, people with low levels of this neurotransmitter are less likely to work for things and care less about the rewards that come afterward. • Dopamine Controls Movement It's also good to point out that dopamine plays an essential role in movement. How? Well, the basal ganglia (largest and most important sources of dopamine in the brain) is the biggest factor that comes into play here — it actually controls movement. For the most part, the basal ganglia require high levels of dopamine to function optimally — this is just how it works. If limited amounts of dopamine reach the basal ganglia, several different voluntary motions may become uncoordinated — this is especially common in Parkinson's disease. • Dopamine Increase Wakefulness As humans, we're more likely to stay awake when we have higher levels of dopamine in the brain — this is precisely why you're always active during the day. On the flip side, dopamine levels fall during the night, and melatonin takes over; as you probably guessed, this chemical makes you sleepy! • Dopamine Processes Pain Besides its role in increasing your urge for exciting experiences, dopamine is also released when you come across unfavorable or sad events — more like when you have an epic argument with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Finally, you should be aware that dopamine has a link to addiction. Essentially, excessive intake of drugs can decrease dopaminergic function and eventually increase addiction to drugs. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

Given an inherent subjective nature, emotions have long been a nearly impenetrable topic for scientific research. Affective neuroscientist Jaak Panksepp explains a modern approach to emotions, and how taking seriously the emotions of other animals might soon improve the lives of millions. Jaak Panksepp introduced the concept of Affective Neuroscience in 1990, consisting of an overarching vision of how mammalian brains generate experienced affective states in animals, as effective models for fathoming the primal evolutionary sources of emotional feelings in human beings. This work has implications for further developments in Biological Psychiatry, ranging from an understanding of the underlying brain disorders, to new therapeutic strategies. Panksepp is a Ph.D. Professor and Baily Endowed Chair of Animal Well-Being Science, College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University. His scientific contributions include more than 400 papers devoted to the study of basic emotional and motivational processes of the mammalian brain. He has conducted extensive research on brain and bodily mechanisms of feeding and energy-balance regulation, sleep physiology, and most importantly the study of emotional processes, including associated feelings states, in other animals. This talk was given November 9, 2013 in Seattle at TEDxRainier, a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2011/04/13/Steve_Jones_Nature_Nurture_or_Neither Evolutionary biologist Steve Jones notes that genes responsible for circulating testosterone in men are also to blame for most violent and criminal behavior. He argues, however, that the environment in which a person is raised plays an equal role. ----- Many people see their fate as rather like a cake, which can be sliced into a piece called Nature -- what you are born with: your DNA -- and another known as Nurture --the way you live. Life -- genetics --alas, is not so simple; to separate those ingredients one would have to unbake the cake, which is impossible.The UK's Professor Steve Jones is keenly interested in understanding diversity, the role of natural selection and the nature of genetic differences between species. His research has led him to study the ecological genetics of snails, fruit flies and humans. In more recent years however, with information on the genetics of human populations expanding, Jones' interests have moved more towards human genetics. In this talk, the award-winning science writer discusses everything from the genetics of the royal family and the Siamese cat to what happens to those who eat too much cake and whether genes might indeed influence our chance of becoming obese.Jones was guest of the CSIRO in Canberra. - Australian Broadcasting Corporation Professor Steve Jones is Emeritus Professor of Human Genetics at the University College London. He has written a number of popular books on genetics and evolution, including "The Language of the Genes", "Y: The Descent of Men" and "Darwin's island". Jones has won the Rhone-Poulenc book prize and the Yorkshire Post first book prize in 1994; and the BP Natural World Book Prize in 1999. He was awarded the Royal Society Faraday Medal for public understanding of science in 1997 and the Institute of Biology Charter medal in 2003. More recently, he won the 2009 Zoological Society of London/Thomson Reuters Award for Communicating Zoology, for his book "Coral: A Pessimist in Paradise".

WELLING’S SIDE. SORRY ABOUT THAT, BUT I HAD SOME SORT OF TECHNICAL ISSUE, AND I COULDN’T RECORD THE VIDEO. Dr. Lisa Welling is a tenured Associate Professor at Oakland University, US, and head of The Welling Research Lab there. She was awarded the Oakland University New Investigator Research Excellence Award in 2015, and the Oakland University Outstanding Graduate Mentor Award in 2018. She currently serves on the Editorial Boards for the journals Evolutionary Psychological Science, Evolutionary Psychology, and Adaptive Human Behavior and Physiology. She is particularly interested in how hormones affect different aspects of our behavior, including mate choice, preferences, and sexual behavior. In this episode, we talk about behavioral endocrinology (the way hormones affect our behavior), and evolutionary psychology. We start by going through some basic concepts about endocrinology. Then we go through some differences between men and women in sexual and mating behavior. We finish up with a discussion about how to integrate Evolutionary Psychology and Social Psychology, and also the importance of the former in today’s context.

All images/videos by Alila Medical Media are for information purposes ONLY and are NOT intended to replace professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Serotonin, or 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), is a neurotransmitter involved in many brain and body functions and is commonly known as the substance of well-being and happiness. Serotonin is produced in specialized neurons found mostly in the Raphe nuclei located along the midline of the brainstem. The axons of these neurons form extensive serotonergic pathways that reach almost every part of the central nervous system, including the cerebellum and the spinal cord. This is why it’s not surprising that serotonin is implicated in a vast array of brain functions, including sleep and wake cycle, appetite, mood regulation, memory and learning, temperature control, … among others. Serotonin is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan and is stored in small vesicles within the nerve terminal. When a serotonergic neuron is stimulated, serotonin is released into the synaptic cleft where it binds to and activates serotonin-receptors on the postsynaptic neuron. Serotonin action is then TERMINATED via removal of its molecules from the synaptic space. This is accomplished through a special protein called serotonin-transporter. Low levels of serotonin in the brain have been associated with depressive disorders and current treatments for depression aim to increase these levels. The most commonly prescribed medications, called “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors”, or SSRIs, act by blocking serotonin reuptake by the transmitting neurons. This results in elevated levels of serotonin in the synaptic space and its prolonged action on the receiving neuron. The SSRIs have developed into the drugs of choice because they produce fewer side effects thanks to their selective action on serotonin alone and no other neurotransmitters. Unfortunately, because serotonin is involved in a wide range of brain functions, the side effects remain significant and may progress to a potentially dangerous condition known as "serotonin syndrome". This syndrome is generally caused by a combination of two or more drugs used to raise the serotonin levels in the brain. If the medications are not discontinued, the condition may become fatal. Nonpharmacologic methods of raising brain serotonin have shown promising results in recent studies. It has been suggested that positive mood induction, either self-induced or due to psychotherapy, correlates with INCREASED serotonin synthesis in the brain. The interaction between serotonin synthesis and mood may therefore be 2-way, with serotonin influencing mood and mood influencing serotonin. Other methods include exposure to bright light and tryptophan-rich diets. To note, however, that serotonin-rich food such as bananas would NOT work because serotonin, unlike tryptophan, can NOT cross the blood brain barrier. Finally, although it sounds like a cliché, physical exercise maybe the most effective and safest way of improving mood. Several studies suggest that serotonin levels are increased with vigorous physical activity and that these elevated levels are maintained for several days after the exercise.

How to boost testosterone naturally? There are many misconceptions when it comes to testosterone. Some people connect it with aggressive behavior; some believe that the more testosterone a man has, the more “macho” he is. In any case, there are men who want to have as much testosterone in their system as possible. Luckily, it's not that difficult. TIMESTAMPS: Try weight lifting and exercising 1:25 Keep stress and cortisol levels to a minimum 2:27 Follow a balanced diet rich in proteins, carbs, and fat 3:05 Get enough sunlight or take a vitamin D supplement 3:59 Get enough restful sleep 4:47 Take mineral and vitamin supplements 5:33 Take natural testosterone boosters 6:16 Lead a healthy lifestyle, and avoid estrogen-like compounds 6:53 Review your medications 7:36 Lose weight 8:07 #hightestosterone #hormones #lowtestosterone Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - As you know, exercising regularly can help you avoid many diseases connected with a sedentary lifestyle. Surprisingly, it will also boost testosterone levels! - The level of testosterone in your body depends on how stressed you are. Here is the connection: if you're suffering from long-term stress, the level of cortisol (a stress hormone) goes up. The higher the level of cortisol, the lower the level of testosterone. - According to one famous saying, you are what you eat. Interestingly, your testosterone level also depends on what you eat. Both severe dieting and overeating can disrupt testosterone production. - The importance of vitamin D has come to light in recent years. It’s no wonder, as it has a lot of advantages and health benefits. For example, it works as a natural booster of testosterone. - Getting the proper amount of high-quality sleep is a necessary condition for increasing testosterone levels. Sure, everybody has their own perfect sleep duration. But a 2011 study into the effect that one week of sleep restriction had on the testosterone levels of healthy young men showed interesting results. - Certain vitamins and supplements can also boost the production of testosterone. For example, magnesium supplements will restore the levels of testosterone if the cause of the drop is a deficiency of this mineral. - There are also herbs and spices that can effectively boost your testosterone level. The best ones are ashwagandha and ginger. - Testosterone levels can be negatively affected by estrogen-like chemicals. If you’re overexposed to parabens, BPA, and some chemicals often found in plastic, try to reduce this exposure to a minimum. - When your doctor prescribes medicine, you can be sure that it’ll help you deal with a particular health condition. Unfortunately, medications are a pretty common reason for low testosterone levels. - According to several studies, there's a connection between how much a man weighs and his testosterone levels. Men who are a bit on the heavy side have less testosterone than those whose weight is within the norms.
