Let's talk about adaptogens.
I've been getting lots of questions on the topic of adrenal health lately, especially during the recent Thyroid Yoga trainings I led. Before we dive into adaptogenic herbs, let's talk about the relationship between the thyroid and adrenal glands. Nurturing the thyroid without giving the same TLC to the adrenals is one of the mistakes that many of my clients have made.
I can relate and can remember when I felt everything but "good." In fact, it was often a struggle to get out of bed. My legs felt heavy and my brain was a foggy cloud that couldn't remember formulas I needed to pass my biomechanics exams. But somehow, with all the effort in the world, I graduated with honors in biomedical engineering. Sadly, that meant I was constantly pulling all-nighters and fueling with late-night pizza binges.
No wonder my body was fighting me. It took years to find balance for my body, and I did my own research to learn the link between the adrenals and the thyroid. Adaptogens became the icing on the cake.
