Why you need to care about your thyroid!
Over the last week, we’ve been talking about our thyroids. We’ve talked about what happens when you produce too much thyroid hormone and when you produce too little.
We’ve learned that the thyroid is a bit like Goldilocks – you want to make sure that you get the balance just right.
You might be thinking, “well, Le’Nise, neither of those apply to me, so why do I need to care about my thyroid?”.
Your thyroid controls your body’s metabolism and energy (that’s pretty important, right?), however nothing in our body works in isolation. Research shows that imbalances in our progesterone & estrogen levels can have an effect on our thyroid hormone production and vice versa.
Taking care of your hormone health (with sleep, a balanced diet, stress reduction, regular emptying of the bowels and lots of physical movement) isn’t just about caring for reproductive hormones – your thyroid and stress hormones will also benefit too!
