View Full Version : DHEA naturally
04-16-2008, 03:42 AM
I just had a lot of blood work completed and it was all pretty good except my DHEA levels are extremely low. My doctor said I cannot supplement with DHEA since my mother had estrogen-precursor breast cancer and therefore there is a relation that will increase my chances of getting it and even more so if I supplement with DHEA. I've been trying to recover from severe pain (myofascial pain) and severe chronic fatigue (as well as anxiety and insomnia which resulted from the chronicity & severity of the pain). I feel the low DHEA levels are playing a large part in my debilitating fatigue and I am wondering how the raw food diet and any other ways can help to bring up my levels? Anyone know about this?

DHEA is synthesized from linolenic acid, which is found in wild leafy greans (like wild dandelions and wild grasses), flax seeds, pumpkin seeds and walnuts. Try boosting your flax intake and see if that helps.
Also, the machinery in your body that converts linolenic acid into DHEA could be not working efficiently. In that case, try some cleanses for your liver and colon. Or you could take a vegetarian DHEA supplement. But try the ground raw flax seeds first. They truly are miracle workers.
DHEA is also produced during deep meditation. See Centerpointe.com for more on this, and I've been discussing the technology with Raven recently, in the Personal Growth area: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=39951

What kind of blood test do you get to check these levels? I should ask for one.
