Catabolic Is Defined As Destructive Metabolism
Easy to Learn and Easy to Benefit From
Cortisol is the major catabolic
steroid of the adrenal glands. Catabolic means "destructive
metabolism". Cortisol is made from cholesterol, which converts into
pregnenolone, which converts to progesterone which converts to cortisol.††† Thatís about all the technical info
youíll need to understand this page.
The amount of cortisol your body produces is also affected Ė heavily affected -- by stress and diseases. Cortisol is absolutely required for your bodyís metabolism to function, particularly energy metabolism, cardiac maintenance, muscle function, and suppressing inflammations. Large amounts of cortisol are produced in the presence of stress.
The word Ďstressí refers
to both positive stress (eustress) and negative stress (distress). Most of the
time, our use of the word stress is actually meant to convey distress.† Few of us use the word for fear of people
mistakenly believing that distress refers to matters more serious than most of
our daily aggravations.† All negative
stress is distress, and you can bet that distress means definitively promoting
a state away from health, balance, and ease.†
It is the precise cause and definition of the word disease (dis-ease).
†often resulting in injury and/or loss of muscle mass from over training.

Without a doubt, from both allopathic and naturopathic viewpoints, there has never been, nor will they likely ever be, a more instant, more powerful, or more long-lasting shortcut to excellent, balanced health than the instaneously helpful, useful tools of relaxation (stress management) and particular forms of music. Never has been, nor will there likely ever be, a more useful, powerful weapon in the war against aging poorly.
Letís be very clear: Dr. Cohen does not heal you,† your other doctors donít heal you; even the technology and the healthy, powerful natural remedies and the many effective machines that are part of Dr. Cohenís expertiseÖ none of these wonderful tools actually heal you:† in every case, they merely encourage your body to do what it is naturally designed for: to heal itself in a balanced, natural, healthful way.
You have many tools at your disposal.† Using more of them adds time to your life, puts more cash back in your pocket,† reduces your aggravation, & promotes happier healthier living.
†††† As you may have noticed, Dr. Cohen spends too much time with each patient, charges less than his peers and is so busy helping people to help themselves, such as providing dozens of free follow-ups to every Bodyscan, that heíll never get wealthy from his practice. ††When a community is fortunate enough to have this kind of dedication, the intelligent person makes use of that resource.†† Live longer, live better.††††††† That is Dr. Cohenís philosophy and practice.
quality and quantity to your life.††
Does it get any better than that?
