Adrenal, Thyroid, Liver, and Gut Troubles

by Debbie Twoney on May 26, 2014

I would like to discuss the importance of not only the adrenal glands but the thyroid, liver and your gut as well. All of these organs are so important when considering a pregnancy and for your overall health.

An important organ during pregnancy is the adrenal gland. The adrenal is in charge of energy production and also making the base of hormones. Adrenal insufficiency is a chief cause of chronic fatigue and also allergies, especially asthma. If the mother has adrenal insufficiency while she is pregnant, her body will rob the baby’s adrenal glands so it can run more efficiently. Thereby, the baby will be born with adrenal insufficiency and more than likely also have allergies and asthma. Low adrenal function in the mother can also cause her to be overdue or even have a prolonged labor due to low estrogen levels during the pregnancy.

Feeding the adrenal is easy. It needs to have Super B™, 1 tablespoon of Cod liver, flaxseed, or primrose oil, or some other form of omega oil such as, Omegagize3 and Trace minerals daily in order to build the hormones it makes or create the energy hormones for the body to function. The adrenal loves the essential oils of nutmeg, clove, Endoflex® and EN-R-GEE® from Young Living. Using these oils in conjunction with the adrenal balance in the “Ultimate Balance” book helps the Adrenal Gland increase its energy and its functions.  

I want to remind you to support your adrenal glands.  When your adrenal is healthy it can make the estrogen to support you during menopause and you won’t have to store estrogen to use up during that time.  Storing estrogen causes estrogen dominancy to occur.  In so doing, you might say it is saving for a rainy day. The adrenal is the major gland to make estrogen and if it is low-functioning it wants estrogen to draw on when a woman goes into menopause. It is imperative that we feed our body enough omega oils, B vitamins and trace minerals so the adrenal can carry out its functions. Reduce stress, and do emotional release techniques if necessary to assist the adrenal so it doesn’t have to run on high all the time.

We need to clean out any excess estrogens in the body.  Be aware that you will probably get sick on this, so I would recommend doing the colon and liver cleanse first. While doing the Master Cleanse, mix ½ tablespoon of Prenolone Cream with 5 drops of  Progessence™ Plus.   Rub this mixture all over your skin. Especially make sure that you cover your breasts, thighs, and hips with it. Use the entire tube up in a week to ten days. Repeat for 4 months. If you are doing the Master cleanse with this cleanse it will take less time.

How does cleaning the colon assist the thyroid gland?

Most of us struggle with our thyroid issues, because our current medical system does not offer a sustainable solution apart from giving us a pill.  Most medical doctors don’t know about getting off gluten, or perhaps taking vitamin B12 injections. These are good starting points, but they don't address holistically the root cause of our disease. 

There are many things that affect the thyroid; the main problem is in your gut and it’s in your liver.  The health of your gut and the health of your liver are directly linked to your thyroid health.  Once you fix your digestive issues, you will experience a surge of energy, weight loss, and clarity of mind, enthusiasm and clear skin. Depression and anxiety will start going away. You have to have a well-functioning thyroid in order to balance your hormones. 

How do you know if you have digestive issues or if you have a digestive system that really needs your help?  Well, if you are experiencing things like bloating, gas, constipation, burping, loose stool or diarrhea, or acid reflux, you have a problem.  In more serious cases, you might be having Celiac disease or Crohn’s disease, or IBS.  You crave certain foods like sweets and salt and chocolate, and starches.  You will feel like the day and the meal doesn’t feel complete without them.  If you are experiencing any of these, it's pretty clear that your gut needs your help.  How important is it?   Let's just say it this way; you will never be able to manage your thyroid health without you having a healthy gut and healthy liver. 

 You first need to know that 90% of thyroid conditions are autoimmune diseases.  If you are suffering from hypothyroidism, you are very likely having Hashimoto’s disease, even though you might not have been diagnosed with it by your doctor.  What an autoimmune disease really means is that your own immune system is self-destroying your thyroid.  Because of that destructive attack, the thyroid slows down, and this is the reason why you are feeling so bad.

What you also need to know is this; that the immune system lives in your gut. You will never have a healthy immune system or a healthy thyroid if you’re feeling bloated, constipated, and have many different food cravings.  It’s key to know that the gut is lined with what's called the gut associated lymphoid tissue, but it is the headquarters for your immune system.  If you are experiencing any of the digestive issues that I described, your immune system is most certainly suppressed at this point. 

 The second reason to have a healthy gut is to be able to properly convert the inactive T4 (thyroid hormone) to the active T3 form.  The third reason is that our gut is responsible for the absorption of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.  Most people with thyroid conditions are deficient in many micronutrients like vitamins D and B12, selenium, and iron, just to name a few.  Most people reach out for the simplest solution, which is, of course, supplements.  Here's a problem, when you are experiencing digestive issues, the supplements are not even getting properly absorbed by your gut.  So, you are literally paying for very expensive pee and poop.  Also when we absorb the vitamins and minerals properly, we will feel so much more satisfied with our meals much more quickly and therefore we will eat far less. 

The gut is called a second brain by those in the know, because it can operate completely independently of the brain, and exchanges information back and forth with it.  Did you know that serotonin, which is the “happiness hormone” is 95% percent produced in the gut and not in the brain?  When we experience digestive issues that second brain takes a beating too.  Therefore, it affects our mood and our memory.  So many people experience digestive issues mainly due to food intolerances, meaning that you are eating food that is not agreeing with you, which is creating havoc in your gut.  Another issue can be candida, which is a nasty yeast overgrowth in the gut.  It could be the use of antibiotics in the past that killed the good bacteria in the gut and left the bad, causing huge dysbiosis, which means an imbalance of bacteria in the colon.

What about your liver?  Why is having a healthy liver is so important to thyroid health?  You see, hormones and toxins are metabolized in the liver.  They are excreted through our GI tract.  Remember that the majority of thyroid hormones are converted into the active form in the liver.  This means that your inactive T4 gets converted to the active T3 there.  T3 is the hormone that gives you all your energy, clarity of mind, and metabolism; in other words, losing weight and getting the hormones to the ovaries so they can do their functions.  Therefore, if your liver is sluggish, you are not converting T4 or Synthroid to T3 effectively. 

There are protocols to support the pituitary gland, thyroid and adrenal gland. “Taming the Dragon Within” is my book that talks all about the glands involved in women’s hormones and how to keep them healthy and in balance. I want to remind you to support your adrenal glands.  When your adrenal is healthy it can make the estrogen to support you during menopause and you won’t have to store estrogen to use up during that time.  Storing estrogen causes estrogen dominancy to occur.  In so doing, you might say it is saving for a rainy day. The adrenal is the major gland to make estrogen and if it is low-functioning it wants estrogen to draw on when a woman goes into menopause. It is imperative that we feed our body enough omega oils, B vitamins and trace minerals so the adrenal can carry out its functions.

There are many things that affect the thyroid:

 I want you to know that this is huge, really huge, because no doctor will tell you this; why is it happening and how to fix it.  The problem is in your gut and it’s in your liver.  The health of your gut and the health of your liver are directly linked to your thyroid health.  Once you fix your digestive issues, you will experience a surge of energy, weight loss, and clarity of mind, enthusiasm and clear skin and depression and anxiety will start going away. You have to have well functioning thyroid in order to balance your hormones.

It is important to address all of these—the adrenals, thyroid, liver and the gut to be sure any troubles you may have in becoming pregnant or having a healthy pregnancy are resolved.
