Hormone Balance and Thyroid Health in Women

EvexiPEL is Hormone Replacement Therapy Evolved

A healthy thyroid is important for overall wellness in women. A dysfunctional thyroid can cause serious health effects that can lower quality of life and drive the progression of many chronic illnesses. Between the sexes, thyroid issues disproportionately affect women.

In this article, we will explore what the thyroid is, why the gland is critical for health, what can go wrong with the thyroid, and how women affected by issues with the thyroid can reclaim their health with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

What Is the Thyroid?

The thyroid is a gland that sits at the front of the neck.

The two main hormones produced by the thyroid gland critical for health are:

  • Triiodothyronine (T3).
  • Thyroxine (T4).

The vast majority of thyroid hormone in circulation is T4, the inactive version of thyroid hormone. In healthy women, T4 is converted into T3, the active form of thyroid hormone. T3 is up to four times more active than T4.

In the body, T3 performs several functions that include:

  • Heart rate normalization.
  • Body temperature regulation.
  • Normal metabolism.
  • Healthy tissue development.

What Are the Symptoms of a Dysfunctional Thyroid in Women?

Throughout the course of a woman’s lifetime, she statistically has a 1 in 8 chance of developing a condition caused by a dysfunctional thyroid.

The two main types of thyroid dysfunction are:

  • Hypothyroidism (too little thyroid hormone).
  • Hyperthyroidism (too much thyroid hormone).

Each type of thyroid disorder carries its own set of negative health effects.

The symptoms of hypothyroidism in women include:

  • Undesired weight gain.
  • Cognitive defects (difficulty thinking and performing tasks).
  • Chronic fatigue.
  • Cold sensitivity.
  • Depression and anxiety.

Symptoms of hyperthyroidism in women can include:

Heat sensitivity.

What Self-Directed Therapies Can Women Use to Restore Thyroid Function?

Rather than immediately reaching for pills, women with thyroid disorders have several options to naturally and safely restore thyroid levels. In some cases, medication may be necessary, but several alternative strategies should first be considered:

  • Eliminating processed foods (especially added sugars) in favor of whole foods. The Paleo or Whole 30 diets are good places to start.
  • Supplementing with selenium. The thyroid has the single greatest concentration of selenium among all organs and glands in the body, which it requires for optimal function. Many people do not get enough selenium in their diets.
  • Include more probiotics in your diet. Examples of excellent probiotics include kombucha, kefir, yogurts, and sauerkraut.
  • Hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones.

What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Women?

Research in the last fifty years has uncovered the complex role that estrogen and progesterone, the primary female sex hormones, play in overall health.

As women age, estrogen levels steadily decline, ultimately leading to menopause. This process is natural but comes with many unpleasant and often dangerous symptoms.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women replaces estrogen levels using all-natural estrogen sourced through plants that are distributed by small “hormone pellets” inserted under the skin.

How May BHRT Be an Effective Therapy for Women With Thyroid Disorders?

The link between estrogen and thyroid function in women has been well-documented by clinical research. In women with thyroid dysfunctions, estrogen levels are often low.

As a result, the symptoms associated with thyroid disorder (such as depression, chronic fatigue, and insomnia) may in part be due to estrogen deficiency. Therapy with bioidentical estrogen may alleviate these symptoms in women.
