3 Drinks To Boost Your Adrenal, Thyroid, & Sex Hormones

three-smoothies

The human body can do some pretty amazing things. There are trillions of cells in each person’s body that all communicate via hormones. Hormones are the messengers, helping you to achieve optimum health. When there’s a hormonal imbalance, however, your health can take a dive.

 

If your hormones aren’t balanced, you can experience weight gain, mood swings, unhealthy cravings, or low energy levels. For example, when you are stressed out you have an overproduction of cortisol, the stress hormone. These hormones can cause headaches, abnormal sleep patterns, and poor digestion. Similarly, it is possible to experience low sex drive if there is an imbalance of sex hormones.

 

Enter healing through food. Rather than immediately resorting to medication, you can use food to help balance your hormones and improve your overall health. Below we have three drinks that can help rebalance hormones for your adrenals, your thyroid, and your sexual health.

 

Adrenals:

If you sleep poorly at night, feel sluggish during the day, get a second wind of energy in the afternoon, and are irritable for no reason, your adrenals could be suffering. While adrenal fatigue is difficult to diagnose, it is fairly common. It happens when your brain and adrenals aren’t communicating like they should. Typically, stress hormones are too high or low when your adrenals are fatigued, so make this drink to give your adrenals some love.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon ashwagandha powder
  • 1 teaspoon rhodiola powder
  • 1 teaspoon holy basil powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions:

  • Place the herbs in a mug and pour 1-2 cups of boiling water over them. Let this steep for about 15 minutes. You can drink warm or pour over ice.

 

Thyroid:

The thyroid, while it is a small gland in the body, is responsible for every cell functioning like it should. It helps cells metabolize, so other things won’t function properly if your thyroid isn’t working like it should. Weight gain, depression, poor digestion, brain fog, or hair loss, are all common symptoms of thyroid problems. Try this drink to boost thyroid health.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon organic virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 2 Brazil nuts
  • 1 avocado, skin removed
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1 cup fresh mixed berries
  • 1 banana, frozen overnight

Instructions:

  • Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender until you get your desired consistency.

 

Sex Hormones:

Low sex drive, depression, anxiety, or weight gain can sometimes be attributed to a hormonal imbalance. Having perfectly balanced estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels is like walking a tightrope. To feel confident about yourself, try drinking this to balance those hormones.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups organic coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon shilajit powder
  • 1 teaspoon mucuna pruriens powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey

Instructions:

  • Blend all of the ingredients in a blender.
  • Pour the blended ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat once the liquid is warm. Sip on this slowly.

    Q: Can chaparral cause the thyroid to become overactive? I went to the Dr's a couple of weeks ago and she stated that my thyroid had become overactive. It was under active which caused me to become over weight. When I had my youngest son about 12 years ago it was very overactive and the Dr's didn't want to attribute it to just having a baby which may have knocked my hormones crazy. Now this Dr wants me to go thru a lot of tests. And I know my recent weight loss of 50 pounds has come from being on an herbal regiment program. I haven't told the Dr what I'm doing and she hasn't asked, so I'm not going to say anything. I also take a multi vitamin which is herb based.

    A:

    We recommend that you take the Thyroid Formula, Iodine Formula, and Electric Greens Combo, all available in our online store. Chaparrall is and herb and will not harm the body.

    Q: I have a client that had her thyroid removed, the doctors have her on 3 grains of the natural...well natural for a pig. Thyroid. She couldn't sleep so they put her on ativan. Which is making her crazy (between you and I) She is still not sleeping and feeling agitated and this drug is causing her anxiety. I feel it has built up in her system and she has to dose down off of it. Do you have anything that would help her sleep? I have already suggested your thyroid blend. However, I didn't know if it could really help her as they removed her thyroid. So perhaps she does need the grains, as her body can no longer produce it on her own. I would really like to get her on natural as possible stuff so we can see what is physical and what we can work on energetically. Right now she feels like an energetic mess. Any suggestions?

    A:

    I RECOMMEND FOR HER (TO INDUCE SLEEP) OUR NERVES FORMULA (6 CAPSULES BEFORE BEDTIME) AND CALMING INSPIRANT. AND BY ALL MEANS SHE NEEDS A NATURAL THYROID FORMULA (I.E. THYRIOD FORMULA AND IODINE PHOSPHATE. IF SHE FEELS LIKE AN ENERGETIC MESS, SOME SERIOUS CHAKRA BALANCING/ALIGNMENT IS NEEDED.

    Q: A friend of mine took her 7 year old daughter to the doctor because she had noticed something rare in her underwear. The doctor informed my friend that her daughter was starting her period. The doctor prescribed her hormones but to really think about it before she started her daughter on the hormones. I suggested to my friend that she shouldn't do it. Which is why I decided to check out this site. I know that now in days a lot of our food is contaminated with hormones. Could that be a reason why her daughter is starting her period at such a young age? Any type of inforamtion would be grately appreciated. 

    A:

    We would recommend for her daughter to drink the Female Health Tea, a cup a day. Nature is taking its course and all you can do now is to get in tune with it.

    Poor diet may be the reason why she is going through puberty at such a young age. It's probably too late to try and stop her period but it is never too late to start eating healthy. She needs to stay away from animal products and processed foods. Her diet should consist of mostly fruits and veggatables.

    Q: I have recently had my whole thyroid gland removed due to cancer. My doctor has put me on Synthroid (150mcg) due to hypothyroid. I've gained about 20-25 lbs and I'm considering in purchasing your weight loss package ($165). However, I would like to know if you would recommend this product for someone like me with this kind of condition? Also, I've had several individuals and doctors tell me that my weight will not come off until my medication is at the right level and my body gets adjusted to the medication. Therefore, any diet and/or medication for weight loss will be ineffective. Please advise.

    A:

    You have a choice to make if you are still planning on taking medication (drugs) while taking herbs. If you are going to take herbs and drugs at the same time you are defeating the purpose. Herbs nourish and cleanse while drugs pollute and toxify. You have a choice to make.

    Q: Sorry to bother you again but you are a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate all your information you give us. I am 44yrs old and have 20 pounds to lose. After I quit taking EHEDRINE I started gaining my weight back. I use to take EPHEDRINE to keep the weight off and no longer am able to order it in my state of Minnesota because it is banned. So I ordered some EPHDRA POWDER in hopes it would do the same for me as the ephedrine did but the ephdra powder doesn't SUPPRESS MY APPETITE like the ephedrine tablets did. I was wondering what I could add to the powder to bring out the appetite suppressant qualities in the ephdra powder. I have tried to brew it with my coffee and that hasn't helped either. I really would like to take this weight off and ephedrine was the only thing that helped me and I pray that your knowledge would help me to lose this excess weight. I bought your thyroid capsules and wondering how long before I will notice any energy difference. (I have a hypothyroid which is probably the cause of the gaining weight but the ephedrine helped me with that also). I pray you can

    A:

    You're giving external factors too much power over you. Things never heal us, only placate us. Truly answers lie within. What did Ephedrine have that God did not put in you? Forget about keeping weight off, instead focus on maintaining your desired weight. Why do you need to suppress your appetite? What you suppress in one area will manifest in another area. Suppression does not heal, only hides things and allows things to grow. Your challenge is to cultivate self discipline and maintain your desired weight. Read my article â€EPHEDRA†under articles. Ephedrine is a damn drug! Drugs don't heal, they only suppress! Nature (Ephedra) takes time! My knowledge cannot help you to lose weight, but only stimulate you into taking control of your own life and health, especially pertaining to weight. Your power lies within! It dos not come from outside of self! The Kingdom of God is WITHIN!

    Q: I need some advice on whether I am taking the right herbs to balance my hormones. I have a mustache and a lot of hair on my face and acne. So I take saw palmetto for that. Also, I had an ovary removed about 2 years ago. Since then I have a problem with vaginal dryness and very low sex drive. I am always moody and irritated by everything. I am currently taking saw palmetto, vitex chaste berry, dong quai, and wild yam root, all in the form of a capsule. Please tell me if this combination is good for me.

    A:

    THE COMBINATION IS GOOD, BUT YOU HAVE A HORMONAL IMBALANCE AND SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON YOUR ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. LOOK INTO OUR TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. YOU ARE PRODUCING MORE MALE-BASED HORMONES THAN FEMALE-BASED HORMONES. READ OUR ARTICLE â€FEMALE HORMONAL REPLACEMENT THERAPYâ€

    Q: I have experienced dramatic hair loss in the last 7 months. The Dr.'s says it's stress. I have since eliminated stress, started working out, detoxing (ionic foot bath), and eliminating the bad foods. I have been known to eat excessively in the past. Im just not sure, if it is not my hormones off track, because of the poor diet, then what. Although, I believe that poor diet leads to any illness now. I would like to find one product that can focus on the bigger picture for me which is complete well being to STOP the hair loss and grow my hair back as thick and strong as it has always been. When the hair loss started I noticed constipation at the same time. The constipation is slowly getting better, but the hair loss really concerns me. I am a model, and my hair is my trademark. Do you know of any reputable naturalpaths in Atlanta? Is there a product of yours that you could suggest?

    A:

    Usually, the hormones are out of balance, usually the ovaries. Hair loss is a sign of degeneracy at the sexual reproductive level. Rebuild the endocrine system. Start by cleansing the body. Start by detoxing (Full Body Detox) followed by performing the Total Woman Cleanse. Also, learn to focus on what you desire (beautiful and healthy hair) and not what you don't want (hair fallout, hair problems). Our Mental Science Manual is good reading for healing with the mind in addition to herbs and other things.
