Cortisol Hormone

Cortisol Hormone is known as the stress hormone as it helps the body to cope with stress.

Cortisol is released into the bloodstream from the adrenal cortex during the fight, flight and freeze stress-response, and then levels should return to normal once the stress has passed.

But, due to our lives, time management issues, a racing mind and today's stress levels, cortisol can be released at inappropriate times causing imbalances, such as Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, Cushing's Disease and Addison's Disease.

Cortisol is associated with other hormones, such as cholesterol, pregnenolone, progesterone, DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), testosterone, estrogen, growth hormone, insulin, and especially thyroid.

When the body and mind are under chronic stress, pregnenolone, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen are shunted to make more cortisol.

This stealing of hormone power by cortisol depletes and weakens the functions of the other hormones. Then, these fluctuations in cortisol suppresses the thyroid hormone.
