Proven Benefits of Increasing Relaxation

We’re sure you’ve noticed, but over the past few years there's been a huge national focus on mental health. It makes sense, the better off you are mentally, the better you’ll be able to deal with the variables in life. Dr. Wiggy and the rest of the practitioners here aren’t mental health experts. They tend to deal with the whole body and how to reverse engineer health issues that are related to other systems.

Feeling Blue, Irritable and Cross? Low Pregnenolone May Be To Blame

If you’re a patient of ours at Robinhood Integrative Health then you’ve likely noticed all of the MDs here talk about hormones. The reason why is simple.  Americans nationwide suffer from declining hormone levels.   I’ve written about this plenty, but a quick explanation is: environmental factors as well as the natural ravages of age cause our hormone levels to fall.   One of the main hormones you should be concerned with falling low is pregnenolone.  Pregnenolone is considered the body’s “master hormone.”   If you want to read a medical definition of pregnenolone I’ve got you covered.  “Pregnenolone also known as P5, is an endogenous steroid hormone. It is the precursor of the progestogens, mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, androgens, and estrogens, as well as...
