[00:35] Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness

  • Get Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0977668312/benazadi-2o
  • People don't realize that men and women have identical hormones.
  • Platt’s mom died of breast cancer. The fact that she died of breast cancer means she had a problem with progesterone, which is the hormone that protects women from breast cancer.
  • She had a lot of fat around her waist, nowhere else. The only thing that puts on fat around the middle is insulin.
  • So, Dr. Platt thought that maybe there was a connection between progesterone and insulin. When Dr. Platt started using progesterone cream, he never got sleepy again while driving.
  • Eventually, Dr. Platt opened a wellness clinic to help people with their hormones.
  • “Adrenaline is probably the number one cause of weight gain.” -Dr. Platt

[03:25] What Exactly Adrenaline Is and How It Works In The Body

  • Adrenaline is both a hormone as well as a neurotransmitter.
  • Fibromyalgia is caused by excess adrenaline. When people have fibromyalgia, one of the main things they complain about is fatigue.
  • When someone has a lot of adrenaline, they keep their muscles tense. When you keep muscle tense, you use up a tremendous amount of energy.
  • Part of the fatigue when it comes to your adrenaline is due to just keeping muscle tense.
  • Another reason people get a lot of fatigue with adrenaline is that it prevents them from sleeping.
  • People with too much adrenaline are also low in the thyroid, which can contribute to fatigue.

[08:35] What’s The Correlation Between People With ADHD and People With High Levels of Adrenaline?

  • What's nice about adrenaline is that it is a neurotransmitter; it gives people intelligence.
  • As a neurotransmitter, it enhances what's called creativity.
  • The most intelligent, successful creative people in the world have a lot of adrenaline.
  • There are literally millions and millions of people that have been diagnosed with ADHD.
  • ADHD is all about adrenaline. The most intelligent, successful creative people in the world have ADHD; it's not bad.
  • Also, ADHD is not a learning disorder; it’s an interest disorder. If people are interested and they have ADHD, they'll focus. If they're not interested, they will not focus.

[15:00] Will A Keto Lifestyle Help Reduce Adrenaline In The Body?

  • The brain requires two different fuels to function: glucose and ketones.
  • By providing ketones to the brain and glucose, you can get a significant drop in the release of adrenaline within 24 hours.
  • Road rage is caused by adrenaline. You can get rid of road rage in just 24 hours.
  • Ketones will balance out adrenaline.
  • When it comes to adrenaline, Dr. Platt recommends that people eat something before going to sleep.

[19:20] Dr. Platt Reveals Some Major Signs That You Have Too Much Adrenaline

  • Adrenaline peaks during the night.
  • People with high adrenaline are quick to anger because adrenaline is an anger hormone.
  • Also, they will have cold hands and cold feet.
  • Adrenaline is a survival hormone. As a survival hormone, it cuts off blood supply to certain areas of the body that are not needed for survival.
  • Also, adrenaline cuts off blood supply to the intestines.
  • People with a lot of adrenaline will almost always have tension to the back of the neck.

[28:35] There Are A Few Strategies You Can Use To Lower Adrenaline Levels

  • The best way of tapering down adrenaline is eating correctly.
  • Ketones are a great way to lower adrenaline. Also, glucose from vegetables will be useful as well.
  • Progesterone will block adrenaline.
  • However, if somebody already has insulin resistance and takes progesterone, it will increase the insulin resistance in the brain.

[32:00] Not Many Doctors Are Talking About Adrenaline - Dr. Platt Gives His Thoughts

  • Big Pharma controls medicine. They control what doctors learn in medical school and the medical boards that control the FDA.
  • You have an entity that controls medicine that has no interest in people being healthy.
  • Big Pharma doesn’t want doctors to know how to get people well.
  • Doctors get no training in hormones.

[34:00] Progesterone Cream Can Help With Adrenaline, Here’s How To Use It

  • The back of the neck is a great place to put progesterone cream.
  • There’s a type of headache called occipital neuritis. This causes excruciating headaches, and it is always mistaken for migraines.
  • This type of headache is only caused by excess adrenaline cranial pressure.
  • Sadly, there's so much that doctors don’t realize.
  • You can get rid of ADHD with progesterone cream.

[38:00] Endogenous Depression Can Go Away When You Lower Adrenaline Levels

  • There's a type of depression called endogenous depression.
  • This is depression comes from within. People will get depressed, but they don't know why they're depressed.
  • The most common cause of endogenous depression is the internalization of anger. Adrenaline is the anger hormone.
  • Lowering anger levels will make the depression go away.

[41:45] It’s Time To Take Your Health Into Your Own Hands

  • People have to become proactive if they really want to be healthy.
  • You can’t depend on the medical system that has no interest in people being healthy.
  • Take control of your own body!
  • It’s time to get well and stop relying on traditional medicine to solve your problems.

[44:55] Dr. Platt Has Recommendations For Boosting Your Immune System

  • The whole approach to COVID has to be the immune system.
  • One of the most effective ways of dealing with COVID is a high dose of vitamin D.
  • We can't convert sunlight to vitamin D anymore.
  • Platt recommends vitamin D in powder form.
  • Also, 10,000 units of vitamin D prevents sunburn.
  • Overall, the government should be talking about metabolic health, not pushing a vaccine.
