What’s up with my Thyroid??

Thyroid Problems that will not go away??
Do you have difficulty losing weight?
Do you have constipation, dry skin, and puffiness in different areas of your body?
Are you forgetting things consistently?
If so you may have some thyroid imbalances which can be affecting your energy levels, short term memory and overall health and wellness.

Stress and Thyroid-

Stress is rampant in this society; everyone is go-go-going and not stopping. When this is the case, cortisol, the stress hormone, can be elevated. When cortisol is elevated it can affect the thyroid hormones, making them less effective and active.

Stress management is very important for overall health and well-being. So every day take some time to focus on breathing and relaxation. If life’s circumstances have gotten you down check out my new book on Amazon Kindle – ‘Stress Less with Scriptures. A Christian Meditation.’ Also as your stress levels increase, make fun more a priority as well! Find an enjoyable hobby that makes you smile.

Hormones and their effects-

Did you know the use of birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, and even consuming too much commercialized meats (full of hormones) can keep your body from absorbing and converted thyroid hormone?
Aim for more natural approaches to birth control like the use of diaphragms and other barriers methods or even natural family planning.
There are many ways to address menopausal symptoms that do not have to include HRT or hormone replacement therapy. The best thing for hot flashes is avoiding sugars and inflammatory foods. Call me and I can help stop your hot flashes and vaginal dryness, as these symptoms can really put a crimp in your life.

Thyroid Resistance- the stubborn thyroid-

Have you been on thyroid medication for years and years? If so you can be experiencing thyroid resistance, which means that your body is not absorbing the medication that you are taking causing even more low thyroid symptoms such as constipation, hair thinning, dry skin, double chins, swollen eye lids, and ankles, along with the dreaded weight gain.
