    Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism are thyroid hormone imbalances and very important to know about. check it out at jenbaucom.com #hypothyroidism #hyperthyroidism

    Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism are very different. They are both important thyroid deficiencies to know about and most women with a thyroid disorder fall into these two categories, or Hashimoto’s/Graves Disease.

    What is the Thyroid?

    The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the lower part of the neck. It is in front of your windpipe. The thyroid, in my opinion, is the most important part of your body. It is the control command center. As Mary Shoman states in her book Living Well with Hypothyrodism, “The thyroid’s main purpose is to produce, store, and release two key thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).”  “The T3 and T4 thyroid hormones travel through the bloodstream throughout the body helping cells to convert to oxygen and calories into energy.”

    The thyroid controls everything and plays a huge role in the body and function of our organs. The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the metabolic rate (metabolism and body temperature), and the function of our muscles, skin, heart, liver, kidney, skin and bone development, and brain development.

    It is vital that thyroid hormones are working properly and released into the bloodstream constantly so you have the energy to function on a daily basis. Mind Blown, right? T3 and T4 need to be working together for this conversion. More on the deep logistics of how T3 and T4 work together in another blog post.

     


     

    Hypothyroidism

    Hypothyroidism is having an underactive thyroid which means it is not producing enough of the thyroid hormone your body needs to function properly.  There are more than 3 million US cases per year.

    Underactive Thyroid

    Hypothyroidism is important to know about and differences with hyperthyroidism check it out at jenbaucom.com #hypothyroidism #hyperthyroidism When you have an underactive thyroid, it is SLOW. The thyroid hormones T3 and T4 are very important and when you have this disorder, most women’s bodies have trouble converting the T3.  I never knew anything about it.  I didn’t even know what a thyroid was. That is until I had extreme fatigue for a while, and one day I could barely get up to walk. I knew something was really wrong.  I went to my primary doctor at the time and had blood work drawn.  

    Many weeks later I received a letter in the mail stating my thyroid did not produce enough of the thyroid hormone and I would have to take a pill for the rest of my life. A LETTER. No phone call. Nothing. That was interesting.  Most thyroid medications prescribed by doctors include the Synthetic T4 only Levothyroxine. I took Synthroid for awhile.

    Unfortunately, it stopped working and most of my symptoms remained. When I think back on this, none of them ever went away. Sorry, but a magic pill doesn’t solve everything and we are made to believe it does. Read more about this in my thyroid story below.

    Causes of Hypothyroidism

    The most common cause of Hypothyroidism includes the disorder Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis which is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the immune system creates antibodies that attack the cells in your thyroid gland. This causes chronic thyroid inflammation. There are more than 200,000 US cases per year.

    The other most common cause of hypothyroidism is having an iodine deficiency. Iodine which is found in iodized salt, seaweed, seafood, and other plants is an essential component in the production of thyroid hormones. Iodine is very important for thyroid health, but never in excessive amounts. More on both of these very important topics in an upcoming blog post.

    Pregnancy can also cause hypothyroidism either during or after pregnancy (postpartum hypothyroidism), happening from producing antibodies to their own thyroid gland. This can increase the risk of miscarriage and premature delivery if left untreated during pregnancy. Other causes include a poor diet, Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), pituitary disease, radiation therapy, or some medications used to treat other conditions, such as lithium.

    Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

    There can literally be hundreds of symptoms with Hypothyroidism and some may seem super common, but to anyone that has hypothyroidism, you definitely know they are not normal. The main symptoms include having an enlarged thyroid (Goiter), rapid weight gain, brain fog, extreme fatigue, cold intolerance, hair loss, joint and muscle pain, infertility, irregular menstrual periods, constipation, hair loss, loss of eyebrow hair, dry skin and hair, brittle nails, high cholesterol, hoarseness of throat, arthritis, memory loss, puffy face, and mood swings. Pretty crazy list, right? Some of the symptoms are very common but they are all part of hypothyroidism and it can be overwhelming.

    Treatment

    Hypothyrodism can be treated with thyroid medication, extreme lifestyle changes, exercise, proper nutrition, supplements, and holistic natural treatment.  Finding an exceptional endocrinologist is key for proper diagnosis first. Holistic approaches include medicine with integrative, functional, and naturopath medical professionals. See the blog posts below for some of the best foods and supplements to balance your thyroid and hormones.

    Hyperthyroidism

    Hyperthyroidism is having an overactive thyroid and producing excessive amounts of the thyroid hormone(thyroxine). This can cause many health problems and be quite scary if ignored.

    Overactive Thyroid

    Hyperthyroidism is having an overactive thyroid #hyperthyroidism #overactivethyroid When you have Hyperthyroidism your thyroid glands are working overtime and like a race car. FAST.  It speeds up your metabolism and you can experience a rapid or irregular heartbeat.


     

    Causes of Hyperthyroidism

    There are many causes of Hyperthyroidism and the reason that your thyroid can be producing too much T4. The main cause can be from Graves’ Disease which is an autoimmune disorder in which thyroid antibodies stimulate the thyroid and overproduce the thyroid hormone T4(thyroxine).

    Another cause includes Plummer’s Disease which is an enlargement or swelling of the thyroid gland (goiter) from thyroid nodules or lumps forming. Some nodules can become toxic. Another cause of Hyperthyroidism could be Thyroiditis. This is inflammation occurring in your thyroid which causes excess thyroid hormone to be released into the bloodstream. Sometimes this might happen after pregnancy.

    Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism

    Some symptoms of Hyperthyroidism include enlarged thyroid (goiter), weight loss, bulging eyes, heart palpitations, racing thoughts, heat intolerance, hair loss, soft nails, anxiety, nervousness, depression, mood swings, increased appetite, sweating,  difficulty sleeping, shortness of breath, muscle weakness, lack of focus on tasks, tremors, Irregular menstrual periods and Infertility. 

    Are you experiencing any of these symptoms or either list? If so, many of the symptoms are so common the best practice is to first get tested by a healthcare professional. An exceptional Endocrinologist is the first place to start. If you want to go the holistic route this includes alternative medicine, integrative medicine, functional medicine, or naturopathic approaches.

See you doctor for information related to your own health, medication, etc. See other disclosure for more information.

    Treatment

    Treatment can look a little different with Hyperthyroidism because of the overproduction of the thyroid hormone. Getting the right diagnosis at the beginning for the proper anti-thyroid or beta-blocker medication is crucial, so finding the best endocrinologist or doctor specializing in hyperthyroidism is key. Radioactive iodine treatment and surgery might be other options to slow the production of thyroid hormones.

    Transformations aren’t easy. You have to keep going, and don’t you dare look back. ⁣

    It takes a lot of inner work and persistence. You know when you are ready. It comes from within. A calling. Something is screaming at you to heal. And I finally listened. ⁣

    It is very tricky with a hormone or thyroid deficiency, so best advice I have there is to see your doctor or functional holistic medical professional 1st when you know something is off.⁣

    Hypothyroidism and PCOS were mine. I finally had enough. Brain fog, headaches, weight gain, depression, extreme fatigue, zero motivation and no drive. I was pushed over the edge hanging by a thread. I just decided one day. Fuck this! I’m out. So I just started.⁣

    After figuring out my meds didn’t work anymore, I started with more sleep, more hydration and the correct fitness. Healthy eating choices followed right behind it. Reducing toxins in my home and on my skin was also huge!⁣

    This is just what I did, and in my experience it was the perfect mix. It might be completely different for you. Start with one thing & do what works for you. You will know. Keep being persistent and testing things out.⁣

    It turned me into someone who wasn’t me. I was hiding from life. Withdrawn. Hiding from parties. From fun. From joining clubs, events or becoming popular. I was so shy I walked with my head down.

    In the 3rd IGTV video with my Thyroid Hacks Series I will be discussing eliminating gluten and soy. Why is it crucial?⁣

    Both of them directly affect thyroid function. At least for ME they do. Research Gluten and Soy all you want. YOU know your own body and when it is screaming at you. You are the ONLY one that will know. ⁣

    You know what gives you major inflammation, gas, bloating, fatigue, weight gain and digestion issues. Right? If you don’t, you need to be inside my new program Thyroid Ignite ASAP. ⁣

    You need to log EVERYTHING you put in your mouth. You need to be a tracking machine. I will teach you how.⁣

    Gluten-This is a non-negotiable. It is time to say Ba Bye. You love bread. Donuts. Rye Bread. Pastries.⁣
    You love wheat pasta. I get it. BUT... here is the cool thing sister friend-There IS an alternative food for Everything you love!! Yes there is!!!⁣

    Soy- Fermented Non-GMO Organic Soy products are alright (sometimes) but in moderation. In my opinion, I would avoid ALL Soy. Soy is in absolutely everything. Check all labels or avoid anything processed. Even skincare products can contain soy. ⁣

    What have you experienced with gluten and soy? Tell me!! Spill👇🏻⁣

    Are YOU having low Energy? Are your sleep cycles off lately and you feel your adrenals are maxed out? I got you, girl. ⁣

    I have some of these things going on lately. What can it be? For me👉🏻My monthly cycle & added PMS, not eating 100% clean, and my sleep cycles are whacked out because I am up in the middle of night a lot lately with my sweet dog(and the full moon lol).⁣

    When all these things are going on at the same time, what worked for me is taking a step back and looking at the root cause of each thing, assessing, and writing down everything that I am doing and NOT doing right now. ⁣
    Tips to try👇🏻⁣
    1. Keep a Food Log for a week⁣
    2. Look at Hydration Levels ⁣
    3. Look at stress levels-what is causing the stress and why?⁣
    4. Do I move my body regularly?⁣

    Those 4 things are the most important. Then assess and flip the switch on all of them. #mindsetshift ⁣
    Make a Habits List that you can stick to and start with 1 at a time and make it a non-negotiable. ⁣

    Do you have a thyroid setback or deficiency? Do you experience fatigue? ⁣
    Not having the energy to even get up is scary. I was there. I had to work at it daily and start small. Baby steps is key.⁣

    When you workout or move your body what is your favorite? Walking? Yoga? Pilates? Lifting weights? Tai Chi? ⁣

    Those are all amazing, but do you really enjoy what you are doing? You have to love it. It isn’t something you dread everyday if you truly connect with it. ⁣

    Have you ever tried cycling? I have had a bike since I was little, and never stopped loving it. It’s fun, competitive sometimes and your energy is through the roof!⁣

    Cycling is great for weight + fat loss, daily body movement, extra vitamin D (when outdoors) and so much fun to explore both road and mountain biking. Trails, local rides, charity races... it is a blast!! I am hooked for life!!⁣

    The most fun is either bringing bikes with on a trip or renting bikes the whole time to explore. You see so much on a bike! We have taken our bikes to key west several times or rent them and ride the whole time to check out different hot spots to eat, go to the beach or just hang out locally and ride everywhere! ⁣

    This combo in the am also helps your thyroid and hormones from cravings and spikes in your cortisol. ⁣

    I drink a ton of h2o + lemon first thing(1 .5 liters) then green juice. Next is usually a protein shake with organic protein powder, 1/2 avocado, handful of greens, maca root powder, cacao powder, flax and L-Glutamine. Don’t forget the unsweetened coconut milk(I use water instead of coc milk days) YUM! ⁣

    What’s your breakfast fav👇🏻 spill it⁣

    I love you. ❤️⁣
    There is a lot going on right now in our world and it’s truly overwhelming. All the hate, racism, prejudice and recent horrifying events that took place with George Floyd (may he Rest In Peace) blew me away. It is absolutely unacceptable and should not be tolerated. ⁣

    I know we don’t have all the answers and might not know what to do, but I do know this👇🏻⁣

    I see you. I feel this pain with you. I’m with you. And I’m listening.⁣

    We need to do better now. We need to stop. We need to listen. We need to own our shit that we have no F clue how this feels. We need to educate ourselves. We need to be there. Period.⁣

    It’s not about me. ⁣
    Uplifting each other, being present, showing sympathy, empathy, love, support & encouragement is what needs to happen. ⁣

    Stop. And LISTEN.⁣

    So I’m here. I hear you. I see you. You matter. And I love you. ⁣

    ❤️❤️❤️⁣
