Adrenal and Thyroid Health: Navigating Your Clients to Calmer Waters
This five-hour self-study with audio/video modules, handouts and resources is being offered to health and wellness professionals who want to integrate traditional health education with whole-body health and healing.
The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system and produce hormones that impact our metabolic processes. These hormones regulate electrolyte balance, blood sugar, blood pressure, digestion and more. Adrenal function plays a big role in the effectiveness of thyroid hormones. A variety of things can cause the thyroid signaling system to become unhinged. This can include unhealthy lifestyle choices, poor nutrition, stress and environmental influences, to name a few. In this course, health educators will learn signs and symptoms of adrenal and thyroid imbalances. They will be provided a roadmap on how to assist their clients on which blood tests provide a holistic view, how to recognize lifestyle habits and influences that can impact adrenal and thyroid health. They will also be armed with information that will allow them to provide guidance to support their client in creating optimal health and well-being in a complementary and alternative approach.
