Some stress is healthy – but chronic stress can wreck havoc on your body. Cortisol levels can really mess with your adrenals and thyroid -causing your whole system to be off. I am not a doctor or health care professional, but I am my own best advocate for my personal health. Shhhh -I am also kind of a science geek so I enjoy doing my own research and digging in when I feel there’s a problem. I was asked by a friend to share what I am doing to support my adrenals & thyroid – so I thought I’d share it here on my blog.
It starts with eating healthy whole foods as much as possible -we do the best we can here -it’s so not perfect. Also reducing your toxic burden helps too -all those synthetic chemicals we are exposed to or apply to ourselves daily. We try in myriad ways to reduce them in our home and lives. Those two steps are big conversations in and of themselves!
I use essential oils daily to support my health and well-being. I make up a mix of my own in a roller bottle that I apply daily. It’s a blend that may support healthy function of your adrenals & thyroid. There are no magic bullets, but I opt to be proactive -plus I think it smells really nice <side benefit>. I roll it on my neck every morning where I have half my thyroid left.
So here is my special recipe for adrenal & thyroid support:
An empty glass roller bottle (I get them on Amazon)
Fill the rest of the bottle up with carrier oil -I like Leven Rose Organic Jojoba (on Amazon too) -but you can use your favorite.
Pop on the roller ball top, shake gently to blend and apply daily.
I find it to be a wonderful support – if you decide to try it let me know what you think!
If you use other oils for this purpose I’d love to hear about what you are using -please comment. We all learn from each other and find what is best for us as individuals.
