Healthy Hormones Part 2

Adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism are often confused because they have similar symptoms. They are linked and often if you have problems with one you will also have problems with another.

Adrenal fatigue:

  • Fatigue – debilitating
  • Wired but tired – really tired but can’t sleep or relax.
  • Weight gain – with adrenals it is around the stomach from cortisol
  • Craving sugar and carbs to have energy and craving salt.
  • Reliance on caffeine to get going
  • Inability to wind down and relax your brain
  • Insomnia – no deep REM sleep – can’t go to sleep or can go to sleep and not stay asleep.
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Inability to handle stress.

Hypothyroidism (low thyroid):

  • Fatigue
  • Feeling cold – hands, feet, nose
  • Depression
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain – all over the body not just stomach like adrenal fatigue
  • Dry skin
  • Constipation
  • Infertility
  • Decreased sex drive

The difference between adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism are:

  • Weight gain – adrenal around stomach and hypothyroid whole body.
  • Bowel – hypothyroid has constipation – not adrenals.
  • Skin – hypothyroidism has dry skin – not adrenals
  • Hypothyroidism affects the heart and circulation. Slows the heart rate and the blood pressure rises to circulate the blood around the body

Hypothyroidism impacts mental health with low mood, memory loss and extreme fatigue. BOOK NOW.

In 2007 Oprah had a medical doctor on her show who said that low thyroid in women was most likely due to unexpressed emotions. There was a lot of controversy about the show but apparently the doctor was correct.

The thyroid affects the area of the body around the throat. This is known as the way we express ourselves – our will, our inner strength, our dreams, our innermost heartfelt desires.

Many of our clients benefit from sessions to uncover trapped emotions and clarify their values and desires in life. We know that as well as treating the physical aspects of hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue we also need to address the mental and emotional needs.
