Do you have hormonal imbalances?
Deficiencies? Now, hormonal deficiencies can be expressed in many ways. In guys it
might be they just don’t have the drive that they had, or they’re tired, or
they’re having trouble below the waist with performance. In women it might be
moodiness, it might be weight gain, it might be low energy. All these things
have to do with hormones and hormones balance. Not only sex hormones, but
hormones having to do with thyroid, with adrenal glands, with neurotransmitters; as
we talked about in another one. These things are all made out of protein and
they’re made by enzymes which are made out of protein. One of the most common
things I see in people who have low protein diets, i.e. vegans and vegetarians
is that they have crashed hormones, their testosterone, estrogen, progesterone,
sometimes cortisol, DHEA, they’re low, and they’re tired, and they don’t have enough
protein. Thyroid hormone is very, very common as a protein deficiency. Like many, many people. Thyroid hormone isn’t really a protein, but it is made out of an amino
acid that comes from a protein. I daily see people in my office where I
look at the amino acid that is made into thyroid hormone, it’s called tyrosine and they are hypothyroid, their thyroids are low, and
their tyrosine level is way low and also their iodine level is low, and I
give them essential amino acids, make sure their proteins are coming in, they
rebuild their amino acid, the tyrosine, and we give them some extra
iodine, and while they may be on thyroid hormone for four to six months they then
start making their own thyroid hormone because the deficiency is fixed and then
they don’t need outside hormone. So if you have a hormone imbalance or
deficiency you’re probably protein deficient
