#7: Replenishing and Revitalizing the Endocrine System

45 Day Total Body Detox 2024

By Stephanie Ray, ND, BCN

Higher exposure to products that contain phthalates lowered testosterone levels in a group of 2,000 men, women, and children.  Phthalates are in hundreds of products, such as vinyl flooring, lubricating oils, and personal-care products like soaps, shampoos, and hair sprays. Phthalates are a group of chemicals often called plasticizers, and they disrupt hormone balance in all living things. 

When an adult has environmental toxins, it takes its toll on essential endocrine function. Lady Passion® and Red Rooster® are unique in their ability to support and balance female/male hormones respectively and enhance immune function. Consumed daily, the effects will accumulate, replenishing libido and nourishing the body and spirit. 

Healthy Endocrine System

The endocrine system makes testosterone in men and progesterone and estrogen in women. A woman can determine that all is well when she maintains a 28-day menstrual cycle; bleeding for 5 days with bright red blood. For men, energy reserves and creativity begin with an erection in the morning showing your body's zest for life. 

There is a basic principle to supporting a healthy endocrine system: Stock the wood and stoke the fire. To do this we need kidney yin and kidney yang tonics. You can look at yin as the wood to stoke the yang fire. Kidney yang tonics create heat in the "lower burner" and are intensely energizing. 

Male Energy & Endocrine Support

Red Rooster® is a traditional Chinese kidney yang tonic for men useful for supporting endocrine regulation, a healthy prostate, and a healthy adrenal system at times of high stress. Red Rooster® has a powerful pro-sexual effect that amplifies the masculine side of a person increasing stamina, staying power, positive psychological function, and focus. This formula is fiery and deeply energizing. 

Red Rooster Health Benefits

  • Supports a healthy male endocrine system*
  • Supports immune function*
  • Restores energy*
  • Improves focus*
  • Supports libido*
  • Boosts athletic performance* 

Keeping the prostate healthy with good circulation is important for male vitality. At low doses, Red Rooster supports the male endocrine system. Taken at higher doses, such as 4 - 6 droppers, it acts as a pro-sexual enhancer. 

Note: Women can take Red Rooster to increase naturally occurring testosterone which is especially important after giving birth as it drops significantly, ie. "postpartum blues", or prior to intense exercise.  

Red Rooster is contraindicated in individuals with high blood pressure or conditions that produce excess heat in the body, such as flu or cold. Do not use during pregnancy or while nursing. 

Female Energy & Endocrine Support

Lady Passion® is a traditional Chinese kidney yang tonic for women supporting endocrine function, hormone regulation, and a healthy adrenal system. Lady Passion® is for use when stress triggers signs of depletion such as deep fatigue, cold hands and feet, lower back pain, or weakness at the back of the knees. Lady Passion® increases the female sex drive, supports healthy blood flow, and has a moistening effect. It gladdens the heart, ignites internal fire, and opens receptivity.* 

Lady Passion Health Benefits

  • Supports a healthy female endocrine system*
  • Supports immune function*
  • Restores energy*
  • Improves focus*
  • Supports libido* 

Lady Passion®, at low doses, supports a healthy endocrine system. With higher intake, such as 4 - 6 droppers before a "special event", it instigates a distinct and often profound warming of the lower valley. The herbs in Lady Passion® connect the heart to the genitals, increasing sensation, thus lengthening and deepening orgasms. 

Note: Men may take Lady Passion to enhance their receptive side.
