STUCK? You might be getting to much Cortisol

STUCK? You might be getting to much Cortisol


Cortisol is a steroid hormone that regulates a wide range of processes throughout the body, including metabolism and the immune response. It also has a very important role in helping the body respond to stress.
If you are stuck in your weight loss journey it might be because of stress.

What happens if I have too much cortisol?

Some things that might happen to you…

  • rapid weight gain mainly in the face, chest and¬† the tummy with slender arms and legs
  • a flushed and round face
  • high blood pressure
  • osteoporosis
  • skin changes (bruises and purple stretch marks)
  • muscle weakness
  • mood swings, which show as anxiety, depression or irritability
  • increased thirst and frequency of urination.

High cortisol levels over a prolonged time can also cause lack of sex drive and, in women, periods can become irregular, less frequent or stop altogether

In addition, there has been a long-standing association between raised or impaired regulation of cortisol levels and a number of psychiatric conditions such as anxiety and depression. However, the significance of this is not yet clearly understood but i did live this.

I had extreme adrenal fatigue and it came from high amounts of stress for years without rest. I had a lot of trauma in my late teen and i dealt with it be becoming a workaholic and I am a recovering people pleaser as well. It was a long road to recovery, but I finally feel like me again and I would love to help you achieve this too.Please feel free to contact me for coaching
