Hot Flashes and night sweats are thyroid symptoms. The thyroid gland regulates body temperature. The adrenal glands use a hormone called aldosterone, a mineral corticoid, that regulates sodium and potassium levels in the blood stream. Sodium and potassium are also very important in order to regulate blood pressure. The renin / angiotensin system is dependent upon aldosterone. Angiotensin I is converted to Angiotensin II with the substance called renin in the distal renal tubules of the kidneys. This process can only take place when aldosterone are present in the right levels in the blood stream. This is the main system responsible for normal healthy blood pressure. Hot flashes and night sweats are a result of both thyroid and adrenal dysfunction.

With the help of saliva, food is broken down into smaller particles, which increases the surface area for the digestive enzymes to act upon. A lot of a food’s energy and nutrients –as well as its flavors-cannot be released until its cells walls are broken down by chewing
Cholesterol is needed to make:
Low cholesterol levels are related to a significantly increased risk of death from a variety of conditions and situations unrelated to heart disease, including, but not limited to, cancer, suicide, and accidents. You need cholesterol to make brain cells so with a cholesterol level that is too low we see brain hemmorhages, depression, suicide, etc.
Vitamin D is not a vitamin, it is actually a hormone that is made in the epidermal layer (the skin) when the skin is exposed to sunlight. With this in mind, many people who live in the Pacific Northwest or areas with very little sunlight do need Vitamin D supplementation or they need to go to a tanning salon in order to maintain good health.
