Emotions and hormones

                          Emotions and hormones go hand in hand. I would like to share with you a technique developed by HeartMath institute called Cut-Thru. The heart has its own independent nervous system, with at least 40 thousand neurons, called heart brain.  When heart thythms are more coherent, neural and biochemical events occur which affects every organ in the human body. Heart feelings affect bith[…]

Reverse T3 dominance

  Are you suffering from reverse T3 dominance? What if when taking T4 medication your body converts it to mainly reverse T3? Have you thought that emotional distress and trauma can cause it?   Several hormones are secreted by the thyroid. The three most important hormones regarding thyroid disease and cellular function are: total thyroxine T4, known as the storage or inactive form of thyroid hormone, is the hormone most produced by the thyroid. total[…]

Humans are social animals. Social connection is essential for our happiness and health.

  Living in groups is essential for the survival and re-productive success of social species. Social isolation, loneliness are powerful chronic emotional stressors. They are weakening the neuroendocrine and the immune systems and disrupting the neuro-immuno-endocrine communication and as a consequence pathologies can occur. Research shows that social isolation impairs several immunological functions which may cause the increased vulnerability to infections and inflammatory diseases such as neuro inflammation, tumoral processes, or cardiovascular pathologies by lonely[…]

Hashimoto thyroiditis, hypothyroiditis

Thyroid T3 hormone and early life trauma

                          Early life stress (ELS) can induce changes on behavioural and metabolic responses later in life. Stress early in life may cause persistent programming changes on the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis functioning.  Persistent hyperactivation of HPA axis can cause damage. Study investigating whether changes in thyroid hormone metabolism could explain mechanistic links between early life stress. The sample of this study included 80 students[…]
