Anger – Can it be my hormones?

Mention the word “hormones” and it immediately conjures up the image of a woman who is out of sorts.  However, men and women have identical hormones and both sexes are prone to the same hormonal imbalances.  Imbalance of certain hormones can certainly lead to problems with anger issues.

There are different types of anger.  What I will be addressing is uncontrollable anger, road-rage anger, unreasonable anger, and short-fuse type anger; the kind of anger causing people to wind-up in “anger management” classes.

This kind of anger is strictly related to hormones.  It is the type of anger that never improves until hormonal balance is achieved.

The primary hormone associated with anger is adrenaline, A.K.A. the “fight-or-flight hormone”.  This is the hormone that causes rage, the hyperactivity of ADHD, “restless leg syndrome”, converts ADHD into a bipolar disorder, causes people to get into drugs and alcohol, and is also a strong contributor to fibromyalgia.

The increase in adrenaline is a by-product of the body’s survival instinct.  It occurs in response to hypoglycemia caused by an over-production of insulin.  This sets up a cascade of various hormones to be released, which can ultimately result in adrenaline-induced anger.

Although the hormonal mechanisms involved are very complex, the treatment is simple.  The purpose of this article is to make the reader aware that there is a strong hormonal aspect to anger.  For those who might be interested, the book called “The Miracle of Bio-Identical Hormones” provides insight into this area and provides the mechanism where people can obtain relief in a short amount of time.

The interesting facet to this is that adrenaline, the major hormone involved in creating anger, has been essentially ignored.  At the same time, the primary hormone that can relieve hyperadrenalism, namely natural bio-identical progesterone, has also been unappreciated.  I have had patients who have eliminated ADHD in 24 hours, restless leg syndrome in about 5 days, severe fibromyalgia in as little as 3 days, etc.

For even more definitive information, I have also written a book called “Adrenaline Dominance”,  that is the definitive book with regard to excess adrenaline. Aside from providing the brain with the correct fuel, such as green vegetables and coconut oil, the other missing ingredient to reducing adrenaline, as previously mentioned, is the correct amount and dosage of progesterone cream. The book is available on Amazon, or on my website:

If you do go to my website, you can also order Platt Pro 5%, an all-natural pharmaceutical grade of progesterone cream that provides 50 mg per pump. It is the strongest progesterone cream that is available without a prescription. Click on the Platt Pro 5% icon and you will be able to download a protocol for its use as well as an information sheet on progesterone.

I have also written a wellness manual for healthcare practitioners that carefully explains how to lower adrenaline levels.  For those of you who have problems with adrenaline excess, I do consultations via, Skype, phone, or in office.

For those of you who are spouses of mates with hyperadrenalism, would it not be a luxury to eliminate having to walk on eggshells?

About Platt Wellness

My entire professional life has been devoted to getting patients well. However, my approach to wellness has been considered outside the standard of care by experts for the medical review board. Their concern was that I treated the underlying cause of a patient’s problem and weaned them off their synthetic medications. Instead of changing my approach to wellness, I have surrendered my license but I still have my M.D. My board-certification in internal medicine was taken from me by the American Board of Internal Medicine for failure to do a pelvic exam on a woman I treated for stress incontinence. How does one fight the mentality of doctors inhabiting medical boards? The medical system is a huge business. Unfortunately, it is not the business of wellness; it thrives on disease and illness. It is not only drug companies, but also hospitals¸ people who make medical equipment, certain doctors, etc. This is why they do not allow preventive medicine in this country. The medical boards I came up against are there basically to enforce the business of medicine. I have always wanted to change health care in this country, but in order to do so the consumer has to be educated, as do doctors who wish to change their approach to medicine. Please read the information that will be forthcoming in future blogs and through my online webinars for both the general public and for M.D.'s , naturopaths and others in the medical/health field. I have written a manual for doctors based on my 20 plus years of experience in bio-identical hormone therapy. My book, "The Miracle of Bio-identical Hormones" has won four national book awards, and has a worldwide circulation. I am also concentrating on educating the public to the role of bio-identical hormones in overall health, not just for women but also for men and, in some cases, children. Balanced hormones are part of the key to wellness and play an important role in the overall mechanics of the body. Wishing you hormonal balance! Sincerely, Michael E. Platt, M.D.
