All this talk about thyroid and nobody is talking about this. Listen, if you remove these stressors, you will watch your health improve. What am I talking about? I am talking about your thyroid specifically I recently found out by going to the doctor that I had adrenal fatigue. Now this may surprise some of you because I live a pretty healthy lifestyle. But I do stay pretty darn busy and I have quite a lot of stress. I’m sure you can relate. Stress takes a toll on the adrenals. And this has consequences for your thyroid as well as your immune system. Now the following 11 emotional and physical stressors can cause an alarm sound in your body and your adrenals to react by pumping out those stress hormones. Number one is emotional abuse. Death of a loved one, financial difficulties, family & relationship conflict, pressure at work, trauma, gut dysfunction, over-exercise, chronic infections, blood sugar swings and much more. So basically inflammation from your adrenal stress causes the receptor cells from your thyroid hormones to become less sensitive leading to symptoms of hypothyroidism It’s kind of like how your body becomes insensitive to insulin if you have diabetes. What’s interesting about this, and you might not know, is that when you test for thyroid dysfunction, and have the labs come back They could come back completely normal because the hormones are at regular levels in your blood, but they are not being received by all of your cells. So today, I have a juice recipe for you that will help you normalize blood sugar levels and relieve cortisol levels. In fact, one of the ingredients is ashwaganda. It’s actually in our Organifi Green Juice and it has been shown to lower stress levels by up to 26 percent. Here’s the juice recipe:. You’re going to love this. It’s creamy. It’s delicious. It’s decadent. It’s one of my favorite recipes. We have one jicama, we have five ribs of celery. And we’re going to use a pinch of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of ashwagandha or one scoop of Organifi. We have two carrots. We have 1-2 raw sweet potatoes. So I want you to juice all the veggies. And then at the end, you’re going to put your ashwagandha, cinnamon in. Stir it up and you’ll have your creamy delicious juice recipe to go. Great around the holidays! Stay tuned for more on thyroid health in the following weeks.
