The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped small structure that sits on our neck.
It produces thyroid hormones that are crucial for life.
THYROID HORMONES CONTROL OUR;
* METABOLIC RATE,
* HEART BEAT,
* EFFORT TOLERANCE,
* MEMORY AND CONCENTRATION,
* BODY FLUID,
* BLOOD PRESSURE,
* BOWEL MOVEMENT,
* SENSITIVITY TO HEAT OR COLD,
* MOOD STABILITY,
* SKIN QUALITY,
* HAIR QUALITY,
* NAIL QUALITY,
* MENSTRUAL CYCLE,
* BLEEDING VOLUME EACH MENSTRUATION,
* SEX DRIVE,
* ENERGY LEVEL,
AND MANY MORE.
SEX DRIVE is also controlled by cortisol, a hormone that is produced when we are stressed.
HIGH CORTISOL causes high blood pressure, high insulin, and high blood sugar and it Encourages fat storage.
HIGH CORTISOL suppresses our sex drive, increases alertness, and promotes the breakdown of our protein in the muscle.
It causes muscle wasting and also causes striae (Stretch Marks) on the skin.
Cortisol is naturally high in the dawn, a phenomenon called the ‘dawn phenomenon’ that happens a few hours before you wake up.
The high Cortisol suppresses the sleep hormones (Melatonin) and wakes us up in the morning.
So we naturally have slightly high blood pressure and blood sugar in the early morning. Then the cortisol level will fluctuate in the day, and go to the lowest level at night, so we will feel relaxed, melatonin ( sleep hormone) will rise and hence we’ll get a good sleep.
IF YOU HAVE LOW SEX DRIVE, low blood pressure, sensitivity to cold, hair loss, dry and dull skin, losing eyelashes and eyebrows, difficulty in weight loss, fatigue, depression, anxiety, feeling down and tired.
GET YOUR THYROID HORMONE CHECKED.
Thyroid hormones are often normal during the early stage of the disease, which causes many of us to be wrongly treated as having depression and anxiety
HOWEVER, changing your lifestyle can go a long way to improve your Health.
