Are you all set for March Madness?

hormonesWhat is “March Madness”? Well, Wikipedia says:

March Madness may refer to:

~ The main part of the breeding season of the European hare.

~ Events surrounding the single-elimination Division I college basketball tournaments performed each spring in the United States. The main tournaments involved are the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship and the NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship. The tournaments’ nickname, “March Madness”, originated in the 20th century and was later adopted by the media.

~ And also: the month of the government of Canada’s fiscal year end (March 31), when departments traditionally rush to spend the remainder of their budgets in order that they not experience budget reductions the next year. This usage was apparently the origin of the uses for basketball.

But mostly, it’s all about the basketball.Lots of basketball. It is the ultimate NCAA championship tournament with tons of games and it’s happening right now.

I know, some of you are shocked that I know anything about that. Ha! Anyway, I was a cheerleader and they are way more intelligent than you some of you think. {wink}

So in the interest of being “good sports” all this month, we are hosting our own marathon series, a type of “March Madness” with lots of extra free stuff on what more appropriate topic than… hormones!

(Get it? Madness… hormones… I’m on a sports pun roll tonight I think. Rolling right along…)

In keeping with the “March Madness” theme, it’s again the perfect time to toss out to you another FREE video segment of some of our most requested teaching on the Endocrine System!

Today, the clip is from the series, “Hormones and a Happy, Healthy YOU!” This is from our study on the chemical system of the body with the adrenal hormones.

The adrenal glands or related hormones are primarily our system to handle stress in the body. Stress is defined here at The Picture of Health as “an increased demand for your resources.” You can see this “stress” hormone involvement at all ages and again, it’s actually the beginning stages of the medical diagnosis for “Syndrome X” or Insulin Resistance Syndrome, but leads to a whole host of other major, life-threatening diseases

It’s more than stress… it’s the first sign of many serious deficiencies and diseases.

(By the way, if you still haven’t taken the FREE Health Quiz on the top left corner of our site… now is a great time to do that. We call it “The Wake Up Call” pop-quiz for a reason!)

This is an excerpt from our “Series 1 – Nutrition and Wellness Essentials,” a 14-week course, taught live in The Picture of Health classroom and soon-to-be available through our Products & Resources tab.

For much more teaching on these and many other hormone considerations, you want to get our teaching Series 1, Module 2 – The Endocrine System. You can plug into some of the excellent teaching on these individual topics on our Products and Resources Page (coming soon so please check back in a couple days for the new reveal of the updated site!).

Make plans to join us weekly for new articles, coaching, and stay tuned for more in the series, ““Hormones and a Happy, Healthy YOU!” all month long.

Believe. Choose. ACTIVATE. Achieve. (Repeat.)
