Listen up – if you want another well informed, evidence based take on what is going on with your health – this interview is a must listen to. Excess adrenaline – adrenaline dominance is at the root cause of autoimmune issues, PMDD and even school killings. Dr. Michael Platt will explain how estrogen dominance is a major factor and he will tell you once and for all that our progesterone deficiency from the excess xenoestrogens in our environment are behind everything that ails us. And, by the way, Dr. Platt concurred with my seminal work on learning how to live with the menstrual rhythm. Just like everything else in life – there is a time to give and a time to receive.

Dr. Michael Platt: Is Adrenal Dominance Behind “Incurable” Conditions?
The Liberty Beacon Media Network
Excess adrenaline is a little known area that has tremendous affects on so many areas of our health that we have been told are incurable. ADHD, fibromyalgia, anger, depression, interstitial cystitis, insomnia, RLS, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and severe PMS. Did you know that adrenaline is the reason some women vomit during all nine months of their pregnancy? Or is the cause behind addictive behaviors? Excess adrenaline also causes insomnia – tossing and turning and grinding teeth at night – and is even behind weight gain while sleeping. And it is often the cause of bed-wetting in children.
Dr. Platt has been board-certified in internal medicine from 1972-2009. He began his career as an internist with Kaiser in Richmond, California, one of the nation’s first HMO’s. The Kaiser philosophy of care, at that time, was preventive medicine, not managed care. He then moved to Los Angeles to join Ross-Loos, which was the nation’s first HMO – all patient procedures, lab fees, prescriptions, etc. were covered, and doctors were allowed one hour with each patient. When insurance companies took over the management of HMO’s, the whole approach to patient care changed.
Subsequently he worked with a traditional medical group, and then became a hospitalist with a number of acute care facilities in Los Angeles. In the late 1970’s, he turned his attention to convalescent home medicine. He developed insight into health problems associated with aging, which reinforced his passion for preventive medicine to prevent physical decline and illness. For a period of almost 20 years, he served as medical director for over 30 nursing homes in Los Angeles, CA.
In 1981, following the premature death of his mother from breast cancer, he discovered that keeping hormones in balance might be a key to wellness, a concept he says, that was not taught in medical school. He learned everything he could about hormones, and in 1995 he opened an office in Palm Desert, California, to focus on a natural hormone approach to wellness. Since that time, he has placed his attention on the causation of illness, and has developed a protocol to eliminate or alleviate disabling conditions such as ADD, ADHD, fibromyalgia, menopausal migraines, osteoporosis, restless leg syndrome, weight challenges and more. The protocol includes natural hormones, nutritional guidance, and supplements.
He wrote “The Platt Protocol for Hormone Balancing” – a wellness manual for physicians.
And his latest book is “Adrenaline Dominance.”
