Inability to deal with stress is a huge factor in hypothyroid and adrenal fatigue.
When you are stressed your adrenal glands, located atop your kidneys, release a surge of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure and boosts energy supplies. These hormones are released in order to help you with stress. This is how your body is supposed to perform in a stressful situation.
BUT…when you are overstressed and have trouble handling stress, you are putting your adrenals into overdrive. If your everyday life is so full of stress and you have the inability to deal with it then you could be putting your body at some serious risk for adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism issues. It’s like your body is at war with itself.
When you’re overstressed your cortisol levels are pretty much ALWAYS high and so is your adrenaline. You are overworking your body and in time your adrenaline and cortisol will be “overdrawn” and spread thin and you’ll start to notice things get a little bumpy and you don’t quite feel right.
Over time, raised cortisol and adrenaline levels will mess with your immunity, digestion, and growth. Your body functions are minimized causing you to be sick more frequently and LONGER, you’ll store more fat and feel overwhelmed all the time, you’ll lose sleep and stress and cortisol will just continue to pump out in your body. You feel like you just “can’t even” anymore. You’re running on empty and feeling super overstressed. You’ll notice that even the smallest thing will stress you out more than it should.
SO, how do you help this inability to deal with stress and making sure your thyroid and adrenal glands are working properly? I’ve found a product that was actually built around the idea of helping with adrenal fatigue and thyroid functioning. It’s called THRIVE and it contains some pretty cool things like holy basil, licorice root, American ginseng, these are just a few of the herbs included in this product. These herbs will help to balance your cortisol and adrenaline levels.
If this is something you feel you may be suffering from and you would like to look further into things, I highly recommend you taking this short quiz to find out what can best help you THRIVE and feel at your best. To take the quiz, click HERE!!
