Natural Adrenal and Thyroid Support
Modern lifestyles have caused more frequent adrenal and thyroid function disorders.

Many of our patients have been told their thyroid was functioning normally after just one blood test. However, a single test cannot always provide an accurate result. Several tests can have better results, including some you can do at home. Additionally, there are natural treatments you can try before medication.

Thyroid issues and adrenal issues are linked, so treatment should focus on both. The adrenal glands are the master stress glands in the body that rarely rest. Some doctors claim adrenal exhaustion does not occur, but we believe it does. The term describes when adrenal glands are no longer able to function properly after being over-stimulated. The positive news is, your adrenal functions may be improved, and the proper diet and lifestyle can return energy. The adrenal glands use cortisol, with levels varying throughout the day, like stress levels do, too.

We can provide adrenal testing with more accuracy, showing your cortisol levels and how they vary during the day if needed. Additionally, we review nutrient levels, lifestyle factors, infections, and hormonal imbalances, which could have an impact on your adrenal functions.

Ever Been Told You Have a ‘Normal’ Thyroid?

Normally a thyroid test only looks at the pituitary hormone Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). The pituitary gland produces the hormone which stimulates the thyroid gland to produce T4, an inactive thyroid hormone. The liver converts this into an active thyroid hormone called T3.

It is common for TSH levels to show up within the referenced range, resulting in a ‘normal’ test result. There are more factors to consider for a more accurate result because a TSH test alone can overlook subtle thyroid function changes and not be found until disease occurs. That is why we offer comprehensive thyroid tests.

Nutrient imbalances and autoimmune antibodies may cause subtle thyroid function changes, including low levels of zinc, iodine, or selenium – although these areas are not usually checked when the TSH test result is ‘normal.’ Thyroid issues can also come from intense stress, infections, or illness. It is important that you find thyroid conditions early for the best successful recovery.

Are You Often Overwhelmed or Fatigued?

The hormones produced by your adrenal glands assist with coping with stress, but they can become ‘fatigued’ when under chronic long-term stress. This is referred to as adrenal fatigue, but many consider it the wrong term as the glands are able to respond to stress, just unable to maintain a high function for extended periods. Therefore, you may continue functioning during a stressful day but crash afterward. Over time this can cause your immune system to reduce, and increase the frequency of illness. Not only could this result in being bedridden, but you may also continue feeling fatigued no matter how much sleep you get.

When this occurs, it takes more support to regain energy and be sure that no other conditions are present, such as anemia, chronic viral infections, thyroid problems, or others.

How To Tell If I Have Issues With Adrenal Glands?

During our initial consultation, we assess adrenal functions. This includes pathology testing and symptom analysis, or more specialized testing of adrenal functions based on your situation. One of these tests is a 24-hour salivary adrenal function test, which may be done at home.

Additionally, we consider nutritional sufficiency as this is important for brain function and energy levels, along with other areas such as digestive health, nervous system function, stress support, immune function, hormonal and thyroid function.

Addressing The Underlying Cause

During the consultation, we do a full case study on your present health and your history, including testing if needed. We may request additional specialized thyroid and adrenal testing to determine if there are deeper levels of imbalance. We always try to help with natural support through supplements, dietary and herbal methods first.
