ADRENALS
Adrenals
•
Adrenals
Cortisol is key hormone released but not the only
one.
•
Cortisol releases stored sugar when you are
stressed.
•
Abnormal cortisol levels interferes with the immune
system leading to autoimmune issues (such as
Hashimoto’s)
•
High level damages hippocampus: Memory center
in brain
•
High levels inhibit TRH (Thyrotropin Releasing
Hormone) and T4 conversion to T3
•
High level can also lead to leaky gut syndrome,
reduce healing and cause poor digestion
You also need a
working
Nervous System for
all these to work.
Spine health is
critical
