Your “Endocrine Type” is Part of Your Unique Healing Equation
Why your unique body type plays an essential role in healing breast cancer
Your Endocrine Dominance, in combination with several more factors we will cover in other blogs, makes you unique.
You can dial in and better understand how to create healing in your body by learning about your Endocrine dominance. While the concept of Endocrine dominance seems complete and accurate in and of itself, it still is only one part of the puzzle to your healing equation. I have found that Endocrine dominance is another key but not a single solution to healing. While the information on this topic is growing by leaps and bounds, we still need to take into account the other factors, you will discover as you read my blogs, to get a true picture of how one should design their lifestyle supporting their unique healing equation in a way that no single focused program can.
In viewing diet intake from the perspective of our endocrine glands, we learn some very important foods to avoid. We all have one gland that is particularly sensitive and needs to be treated extra special. If we eat foods that overstimulate our key energy endocrine gland, the gland eventually becomes exhausted. The metabolic rate slows down and we gain weight according to our endocrine type. Pituitary types should avoid dairy products. Adrenal types do best if they minimize red meat, salt, and cheese. Thyroid types should avoid a high-complex-carbohydrate diet and go to a high-protein, moderate-fat, and low-carbohydrate diet. Gonadal types do best if they minimize saturated fats and spicy foods.
The four main endocrine glands we need to assess for most to least dominant are the adrenal, thyroid, gonadal (ovaries/female or testes/male), and pituitary glands. The endocrine system approach helps to point out which organ system needs to be fed for optimal functioning and healthy weight stabilization. One way to recognize your type is to look at your body shape.
Needs of Pituitary, Adrenal, Thyroid, and Gonadal Types
Pituitary types tend to have a large head in relationship to their body. They tend to be creative and intellectual and to like dairy products. Their weight tends to accumulate all over rather than in specific areas. It’s important for Pituitary types to avoid dairy products.
Adrenal types tends to be long, strong, and powerful with a thick, muscular body, broad shoulders and waist, and squarish head and fingers. They are usually warm, outgoing people with strong endurance. Their weight tends to accumulate in their belly and across their shoulders. They have strong digestion and tend to crave meat and salty foods. It’s important for Adrenal types to avoid animal products and salt.
Thyroid types are tall and thin with long fingers. They put on weight around the midsection. They tend to be nervous and to have an erratic flow of energy. It’s important for Thyroid types to avoid diets high in complex carbohydrates and balance out every meal with healthy protein and fat.
Gonadal types (who are mostly women) tend to be pear-shaped with weight on the buttocks and thighs. Their upper bodies are smaller than their lower bodies. They like fatty and spicy foods. They tend to be nurturing, steady, and responsible people. It’s important for GOnadal types to minimize unhealthy fats and foods that are too spicy.
Your Endocrine Dominance is an Important Key to Your Healing Equation
Sorting out the most appropriate diet so that you can heal from breast cancer can be complex and requires looking at all the factors. The most important point to remember is that we are unique individuals and, as such, we best serve ourselves by developing a diet pattern that is unique to our physiology. Understanding your endocrine type and how to apply it to your lifestyle is a major key in healing breast cancer.
There is no one diet for everyone nor one nutrient that will work miracles for everyone. Conscious living means to remain conscious. It implies being your own scientist and entering into a process of trial and error as you finetune your diet. Rediscovering how to eat in a way that best enhances our health, well-being, and joy is a noble endeavor. When we change our diet so that it si optimal for us, it positively influences all our biological systems and every aspect of our health and well-being.
There are three essential questions to remember:
• Am I emotionally stable after eating?
• Do I have increased physical energy after eating?
• Am I craving any foods?
The answers to these questions cannot be obtained from any book. They must come from our own experience. This is a most important key to conscious living.
