Adrenal/Cortisol

Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by the adrenal glands that triggers the body's fight or flight response. If cortisol levels rise at night, they can disrupt sleep and contribute to anxiety. Many of the supplements listed in this section help to lower cortisol levels.

Individuals within the autism spectrum may have patterns of cortisol fluctuation that disrupt sleep and contribute to anxiety. Also individuals experiencing chronic stress may have also have elevated cortisol levels.

If cortisol levels are chronically elevated, it can disrupt other functions in the brain and interfere over time with neurological development. Exposure to even small amounts of environmental toxins which are endocrine system disruptors (such as PCBs and DDT which are found in Great Lakes fish) during pregnancy can also contribute to elevated cortisol levels and may linked to the development of ADD/ADHD in children as well as contributing to hypothyroidism.

Adrenal stress may lead to thyroid hormone resistance, resulting in symptoms of hypothyroidism. There are many complicated issues in thyroid function, it is tricky to diagnose and treat properly. There is also hyperthyroidism. It is best to work with a trained specialist to diagnose and treat thyroid conditions. For list of supplements specifically beneficial for thyroid disorders, please see Thryoid.
