In From Fatigued To Fantastic, Dr. Teitelbaum explains that most patients symptoms seem to come from decreased energy production or increased energy needs with secondary or suppression of the hypothalamus-our bodies master gland, controlling the activity of most other glands in the body.
The hypothalamus gland controls sleep, hormonal function, autonomic function (blood pressure, pulse, sweating) and temperature regulation. Treatment requires optimizing energy production and eliminating the things that are draining your energy. This is called the SHIN protocol, which stands for four main treatment areas:
- Hormonal deficiencies
- Nutritional deficiencies
As you read this book, you’ll find questions at the end of most chapters. Answer the questions and check off the appropriate numbers on the SHIN Treatment Worksheet. When you are done reading the book, you will have a treatment protocol tailored to your specific case.
