    I go for my new blood tests next year that will. determine if I still have thyroid problems or not? The last blood tests concluded everything was fine, however at present I don't feel fine, so there probably is some thyroid or metabolic issues with me. Whatever the result I've noticed I can't tolerate thyroid meds and will have to go natural when I treat it, I've heard you can go to good holistic doctors or use acupuncture. I've used acupuncture before for stress and its lovely, instant relief. So I'm assuming acupuncture would also be helpful for treating hypothyroidism as it restores balance and harmony to the body. The Chinese are smart people.

    Instructions for lower high cortisol level

    1 Take a hot bath with Epsom salts before bed. This will help to relax and prepare you for sleep.
    2 Ask your partner for a foot massage. Sometimes busy brains mean that there is too much energy being spent in the upper part of your body. A relaxing foot massage helps redistribute that energy to other parts of the body.
    3 Turn off the television. Often watching the news and other informative shows can stimulate fear and tension, two emotions which start the secretion of cortisol. Read a book instead to help calm and relax you into a state of pleasure.
    4 Use calming essential oils, such as lavender and vanilla. Aromatherapy stimulates the senses and relaxes the body.
    5 Listen to relaxing music that calms your mind and helps you "veg out" as you drift off to

    Gee that was a while ago since I posted this question. for the reply though, my adrenal levels with a simple blood test has tested out to be very normal according to the doctor. And I'm not taking any thyroid meds either and feeling fine, but since I've tested for hashimotos in the past I have to have a regular blood test for thyroid every six months and I'm due to have it done next month. Hopefully it will be okay since I feel good.
