  • Women are diagnosed as having menopause issues when it is in fact a thyroid one and vice versa. In reality, it’s a combination. There is insufficiency and dysfunction in the entire hypothalamic pituitary adrenal thyroid axis.
  • Both menopause and low thyroid hormone increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and of osteoporosis. That’s why it is important to address symptoms in the early stages before there’s damage to the system.
  • Having good gut health, blood sugar balance, and adrenals can help clients manage their thyroid and their menopause together.
