Cortisol ( a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal gland) is crucial to thyroid function. Cortisol raises blood sugar (glucose) levels when they go too low. Over time, if the blood sugar goes too low it exhausts the adrenals leading to the corruption of thyroid activities. This dip in blood sugar also results in exhaustion of the Hypothalamus/Pituitary/Adrenal (HPA) axis. This HPA axis is controlled by the primitive brain function in the area of survival. Stress in all its many forms (diet, lifestyle, exposure to toxins, etc.) is greater today in America than at any time in history. Stress leads to adrenal failure and adrenal failure leads to thyroid malfunction including functional hypothyroidism (under active thyroid). Over time the loss of both adrenal and thyroid function leads to gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction including infection, inflammation, and dysbiosis. This in turns weakens the thyroid and the adrenals.  You can see that this domino effect can lead to a host of  symptoms that make detective work difficult. So many people with blood sugar and adrenal failure are not being appropriately treated

If you have wondered if chiropractic neurology and functional medicine can help you, see a chiropractor or chiropractors. Better yet, do both and see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself, Dr. Scott Brown.
