Regular movement is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.
Getting regular exercise has been shown to reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, improve insulin sensitivity, increase bone density, and more. At the same time, if you have any type of thyroid condition, it’s important not to overdo it.
Today I’m discussing the risks of overtraining and specific considerations for those with thyroid conditions.
In this episode, you’ll learn about:
- The protective effects of exercise
- How overtraining negatively impacts the immune system
- How exercise affects the Th1/Th2 balance
- Why exercise can make us more susceptible to infections
- How overtraining can lead to adrenal insufficiency
- Figuring out how much exercise is too much
- Why I believe overtraining was a factor in my development of Graves’ Disease
- Special considerations for exercising when you have a thyroid condition
As always, I hope you find this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
