Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of your neck. Although it is small, this gland is directly responsible for your metabolism. The thyroid functions to control mood, energy, metabolism, cholesterol balance, brain function, weight loss, and fertility.

Ways your thyroid works:

  • Maintaining the metabolic rate in the body by influencing appetite and the absorption of substances. They allow for the breakdown of glucose, increase absorption in the gut, and allow for the breakdown of fats.
  • Influence the cardiovascular system by increasing the rate of the body’s heartbeat, the rate of breathing, and the consumption of oxygen.
  • Maintain normal sexual function including the libido and a regular menstrual system.

The thyroid gland represents a perfect example of how one’s hormonal system interacts with every other system in the body for optimal health. Virtually every cell in the body has a receptor for thyroid hormone meaning that optimal thyroid hormone levels will affect every aspect of an individual’s health and well being, hence why we consider it the nucleus of our hormones.

Common thyroid symptoms in men and women include:


Hashimotos  (aka Leaky Gut syndrome) is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the tissue of the thyroid gland. Often times this is hereditary, diet and hormone imbalances are also believed to play a role.

Hypothyroidism is a common condition where the thyroid doesn’t create and release enough thyroid hormone into your bloodstream. This makes your metabolism slow down. Also called underactive thyroid, hypothyroidism can make you feel tired, gain weight and be unable to tolerate cold temperatures. The main treatment for hypothyroidism is hormone replacement therapy.

The adrenals are little pyramid-shaped glands that sit on top of your kidneys. These small glands are responsible for the production of many hormones such as cortisol, the stress hormone, and about 20% of your reproductive hormone levels.

When we experience stress, our adrenal glands secrete cortisol to help our bodies manage it. In moderation, this is a normal and healthy response; but in excess, it can cause adrenal fatigue and even gland failure.

Adrenal fatigue, also known as adrenal dysfunction, causes a reverse in the cortisol curve, which creates intense sluggishness during the day. In worse cases, adrenal fatigue can even cause a lack of sleep at night. The immune system is impacted, and the body goes into fight or flight mode. Common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include anxiety, irritability, headaches, hair loss, fatigue, and changes in weight. Although adrenal fatigue is not currently recognized as a medical diagnosis, at Perspective Health we believe it is a key component to hormone optimization. 

Adrenal insufficiency is the medical term applied for conditions in which the adrenal glands do not release adequate amounts of their hormones. Cortisol is often the worst affected hormone.

The symptoms of adrenal insufficiency can include:

In worst-case scenarios, adrenal insufficiency can become a life-threatening adrenal crisis. Speak with one of our qualified Nurse Practitioners to see how we can help you!
