When seeking to overcome low thyroid function and hormonal problems; it is important to start with thoroughly implementing Biochemnordic’s thyroid promoting diet principles, as outlined in our hypothyroid treatment program before using further hormonal support.
But if symptoms are not fully relieved from our thyroid diet, further thyroid support, and/or hormonal support might be useful.
Our thyroid diet guide helps you support your thyroid function with reliable over the counter natural desiccated thyroid supplements (NDT).
Progesterone and pregnenolone
This guide concerns the use of hormonal support more specifically the body’s natural anti-aging and anti-stress hormones called progesterone and pregnenolone.
Both pregnenolone and progesterone have general anti-stress effects and are produced in large amounts in youth! Thus these hormones are also called youth associated hormones. A deficiency of pregnenolone and progesterone are often associated with inflammatory symptoms, hormonal imbalances, stress, and aging.
Therapy with supplements of progesterone and pregnenolone can often help lower stress hormones and stabilize your hormonal balance to a more youthful state where the cells function optimally. Particularly progesterone is important in the case of estrogen dominance.
Increasing thyroid function too quickly can result in unpleasant side effects for some people, especially if they have been hypothyroid for a long time. In order to avoid these symptoms, while correcting the thyroid function, it is often helpful to use progesterone and or pregnenolone to support your body’s natural anti-aging and anti-stress systems, while increasing metabolism.
More details about the indication for progesterone and pregnenolone therapy, and what symptoms supplementation with these natural hormones can help with, is presented in Module 17 of our hypothyroid treatment program.
