Conquer The Devil’s Pitchfork: Inflammation, Adrenal Dysfunction And Hormones!

by Dr. Anna Cabeca July 26, 2017


As someone who wants you to continue to live a healthy and energetic life, I know that the nutrients you take in power so much of what you do.

The right nutrients can help you maintain your best overall health as well as boost your energy and metabolism.  But nutrients need to do more than just spunk you up (I mean, caffeine does that, right?).

Conquering The Devil’s Pitchfork

My decades as a physician has taught me that the right nutrients can not only add more zip in your step… but can maximize your health needs to conquer what I call the “Devil’s Pitchfork”.

Are you caught in the Devil’s Pitchfork?


The Devil’s Pitchfork consists of three things that will age you and result in disease:

  • Inflammation – the true root of all disease and truly what “inflamm-ages” us!
  • Adrenal dysfunction – aren’t we all tired of how we feel from our chronic stress? (read one mom’s story of her ongoing fertility challenges caused by stress and hormone imbalance)
  • Hormone imbalances – don’t even get me started! Hormones – these energetic communicators – make or break us…

Years ago, I researched and developed a green superfoods drink called Mighty Maca® Plus. After extensive research – and literally traveling the globe – I developed a formula that truly addresses – and conquers – all 3 components of the Devil’s Pitchfork.

Mighty Maca starts with its unique base of Peruvian maca root. This powerful little root is packed with protein, iron, potassium, arginine, iodine, magnesium, calcium, and fiber! Known as the Peruvian Viagra (oh yes, implying another benefit!)…it has been balancing women’s and men’s hormones for centuries.

30+ powerful ingredients

Along with maca, all 30+ ingredients in Mighty Maca – procured from around the globe for their restorative, health-enhancing qualities – were chosen for their own unique strengths as well as their synergistic health benefits when combined.

  • Maca for adrenal support (balances those stress hormones, too!)
  • Spirulina and chlorella for accelerating your alkalinity (do you know why alkalinity is so important to your health?).
  • Turmeric, Acerola cherries, and Mangosteen to quench inflammation.
  • Milk thistle and Cat’s Claw to help your cells detoxify.
  • Cinnamon, Grape seed extract and Flax seeds to balance blood sugar.
  • Cruciferous vegetables for estrogen metabolism benefits.
  • Plus many more of nature’s most powerful herbs, fruits, and roots to support an optimized diet.

And the maca I use in Mighty Maca Plus is certified organic.

And for the record, Mighty Maca Plus is manufactured in the good ole USA, with incredible quality requirements for ingredients as well as stringent manufacturing processes.

Energizing And Healing

Men love it. Check out my good friend (and the “Nutrition Mythbuster”) Johnny Bowden’s blog on how Johnny Bowden starts every day with Mighty Maca!

And for women, Mighty Maca supports improved hormone balance, and best of all, helping with PMS as well as hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause. This can also help with fertility.

And take it from me (if you don’t believe Johnny!) that Mighty Maca is energizing for all of us women out there focusing on being a mom and/or a business woman. I am both! I own my own business and am the mom of 4 beautiful daughters. I was also the caregiver for my elderly father until he recently passed away.

Stressful Journeys

We women are often the caretakers of children and other family members…we often do not take the time to care for ourselves. Stress is prevalent, and stress can be an incredible enemy to our health and happiness.

I find that when I work with clients, stress is often at the root of their hormone imbalances, whether it presents itself as misery during menopause, or for younger women, causing fertility challenges.

Here’s a lovely story of a young woman’s hope for more children and how Mighty Maca helped her.

Stress and hormone imbalances can impact a woman’s fertility and overall feminine health

As an OB-GYN I have shared many difficult journeys like this. And as a young mother myself, who once had been told I was no longer fertile, I remember the emotional pain of that quite well.

The story is of a 36 year old woman named Nikki. It is a story of self-discovery and self-education. It is the story of the heart-wrenching loss of a newborn, but also, a story of future hope for more children. 

In Nikki’s case Mighty Maca provided overall adrenal support (as an adrenal adaptogen) as well as alkalizing health benefits.

Mighty Maca Supports A Keto-Alkaline® Lifestyle

And maintaining alkalinity is a foundational requirement for a healthier life. If you aren’t familiar with the concept of alkalinity, please read this great overview on what the research says about the health benefits of an alkaline diet.

Do you eat foods supportive of a healthier you?

But alkalinity is only part of the best way to optimize your health. A ketogenic diet is the other piece, and will help you maintain your best health as well as help turn you into a fat burning machine (I love the sound of that, don’t you?).

Yes, a Fat Burning Machine! And So Many Other Health Benefits

For those of you who aren’t familiar with ketogenic principles, and the vast amount of research on its health benefits, download my new ebook, “The Secret Science of Staying Slim, Sane and Sexy After 40“… it’s free. You’ll be introduced to the types of foods that should make up your dinner plate, and will also learn about the importance of intermittent fasting.

Once your read about the Keto-Alkaline Lifestyle you may be surprised at all of the impacts that things other than diet truly have on your overall health!

Mighty Maca can be a great way to kick-start an alkaline you! And that will be your start to conquering the Devil’s Pitchfork! Here’s a special offer for you to try it!
