“Cortisol helps you respond to the scary effects of your everyday adventures by regulating the levels of other hormones, such as thyroid and estrogen.
Thyroid keeps you energetic, slender, and happy. Without enough thyroid, you feel fatigued, gain weight, go through life in a low mood . . . and libido? Fagettabout it.
Estrogen, which keeps you flush with serotonin, the feel-good neurotransmitter. Estrogen keeps your orgasms toe-curling, your mood stable, your joints lubricated, your sleep and appetite right, your face relatively wrinkle-free. Estrogen keeps the other angels, cortisol and thyroid, in balance.”
