Thyroid health and adrenal function go and in hand. The way you handle stress has a direct effect on both these two glands.
Chronic stress – the norm’ in the 21 century – results in increased adrenaline and cortisol (stress hormones) being produced by your adrenal glands. Elevated cortisol has a negative impact on thyroid function, and so much more in fact.
When stress becomes long lasting, the flood of stress chemicals produced by your adrenal glands interfere with your thyroid hormones, contributing to many health issues like obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and crazy blood sugar levels.
