Thyroid and Adrenal health
Are you tired for no reason, having trouble getting up in morning, depending on coffee to keep you going, feeling run down and stressed, craving salty or sweet snacks, hair loss, feeling the cold easily, experiencing low libido, difficulty loosing weight, dry skin and hair?
If you answered yes to one of more of these questions you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue and/or thyroid dysfunction. Adrenalin and cortisol dictate how we respond to stress and also affect our bodies ability to gain and lose weight.
Our stress hormones are part of the hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal axis (HPA) which can get out of balance. We liken this to an orchestra where if the conductor is not functioning well, then the musicians play out of tune.
In assessing and treating a woman with adrenal and/or thyroid issues we consider the following using herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle modifications.
- Testing for and identifying any dysfunction in your hormonal profile
- Stress management
- Restoration and nourishment of the adrenal and thyroid glands
- Healthy eating for adrenal and thyroid health
We are experienced in working with thyroid related fertility issues include autoimmune thyroid disease.
