Hormonal imbalance And Stress Related Illnesses
Hormones are chemical messengers that are released from endocrine glands. These messages communicate to tissues and organs and have a direct effect on growth and development, mood, reproduction and sexual function.
Signs of hormonal imbalance are fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritability, inability to deal with stress, being ‘sensitive”, weight gain in some, body temperature irregularities, poor sleeping patterns, low libido, sweating, cravings and digestive problems.
Most hormonal imbalance comes from a form of stress. Treating stress-related disorders is what Dr.Fox mostly works with via correcting adrenal function, resetting circadian rhythm and correcting hormonal imbalance via acupuncture, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes, diet, and nutritional supplementation.

Sleep Science Lecture And Relaxation/Yoga Nidra
Whilst our bodies are dependent on the rejuvenating effects of quality sleep, nearly half of the Australian adult population report having two or more sleep-related problems. Sleep has been discovered to be so vital for health that shift work is now being considered a carcinogen.
Sleep is an essential biological need. It maintains many physiological processes, including cognition, mood, and tissue repair and affects almost every type of tissue and system in the body – from the brain, heart, and lungs to metabolism, immune function, mood, and disease resistance.
Research shows that a chronic lack of sleep, or getting poor quality sleep, increases the risk of disorders including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic pain, stroke, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s, depression, and obesity.
This lecture covers the topics of: Circadian Rythum, brain waves frequencies and how they affect deep sleep, what occurs during the stages of sleep, issues with sleep, and how to enhance quality sleep.

Stress is one of the major causes of hormonal imbalance, fatigue and mood disorder. Stressors that negatively impact adrenal function such as mental, physical, psycho/ spiritual, nutritional and environmental stress all impact hormonal balance. Other disruptors of the endocrine system are poor diet, nutritional imbalance, insomnia and chemical disruptors such as certain chemicals, plastics and heavy metals.
