Production of the thyroid hormones


Thyroid Issues

When the thyroid function is low, the metabolic rate diminishes.
Symptoms of low thyroid include dry skin, fatigue, loss of sexual desire, lowered body temperature, and weight gain. Several factors may contribute to low thyroid.

General Indications
Overweight - Need for more sleep - Lack of motivation - Constipation - Balding or thinning of hair - Brittle nails - Muscle cramps
Hands or feet that tend to crack or peel - Asthma, or being out of breath with just a little exertion - Irregular or prolonged or painful periods
Low libido - Low blood pressure - Low blood sugar - Hives or acne

Thyroid Support
Loaded with nutrients that offer support and stimulation to the many activities of the thyroid gland.

II. Hyperthyoid

While hypothyroidism is still a problem for millions of Americans, there also appears to be an increasing number of cases of hyperthyroid function. Hyperthryoid simply means that the thyroid is overproducing thyroid hormones. There can be a number of causes for this, but the most common cause is Graves disease, which is an autoimmune condition. Overproduction of the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) from the pituitary can also be a cause. There are other, less common, causes as well.

General Indications
Having trouble putting on weight (often thin, wiry people)
Nervousness - Diarrhea - Difficulty falling asleep even when tired
Sweating a lot and disliking heat - Hand tremors - Protrusion of eyeballs.

Call you health care professional to check quantities etc.
This condition may be serious and should also be monitored by a M.D.

Our Suggestion

(see products details first)



Nourishes the structural and immune systems by stimulating blood flow and eliminating toxins through a variety of actions. Its primary herbs-schizonepeta, lonicera and forsythia-promote the removal of toxins and may help improve an overall feeling of well-being.
A rich source of organic iodine needed by both over- and under-active thyroid glands.
An underactive thyroid can produce fatigue, obesity and mental disturbances such as schizophrenia.
Vital for cellular energy, cardiovascular health and longevity. Co-Q10 contributes to the health of the heart, kidneys, liver and pancreas. It is also known for its antioxidant properties and for its support of already-normal-range blood pressure levels.
Adrenal Support
Adrenals produce hormones that you can't live without, including sex hormones and cortisol which helps you respond to stress and has many other important functions. With adrenal gland disorders, your glands make too much or not enough hormones.


III. T1, T3, T4
The thyroid, located at the base of the neck, secretes two hormones which help regulate the body's metabolic ratethyroxin (T4) and tri-iodothyronine (T3). T4 and T3 are released in about a 4:1 ratio (4 times more T4 than T3).
T4 is converted to T3 in peripheral tissues, particularly the liver, so liver malfunction can affect thyroid function.
The enzyme required for this conversion needs selenium-a mineral deficient in many diets.

T1 General Indications
Fatigue - Depression - Low self esteem - Suicidal tendencies
Various mental disorders

A Wise Approach To Weight Loss

By Dr. Dale Peterson

An effective weight control action plan should involve making wise food and beverage choices, eating less, exercising more, avoiding crash or fad diets, eliminating drugs that can trigger weight gain, correcting vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and, if they are present, addressing insulin resistance, thyroid challenges, and sleep disturbances.

Steps should be taken to effectively manage stress and foods that are associated with addictive behavior should be avoided.
The wisest beverage choice is pure water (with a pH of 7.2 or 7.4).
The diet should be colorful and comprised of foods that would remain palatable at room temperature.

Refined sugars should be eliminated completely, processed salt, flours, and grains should be limited.

Organic grains and legumes, which are high in fiber, should be included, as should oils such as coconut oil for ex.
Meat portions should be limited to four ounces per meal and the foods eaten should be varied from day to day.
A number of strategies have been used to lessen the amount of food eaten. Some include using smaller dishes, chewing food thoroughly before swallowing, and keeping food out of sight when not preparing a meal.

Dishing up food away from the table and discarding rather than eating any that remains at the end of the meal is often helpful. The tendency to "clean it up" because there is not enough left over to save for later must be avoided. Throwing it into the trash is a much wiser and healthier approach than throwing it into your body.

Since what is considered a standard portion size has increased significantly over the past few decades consider splitting a meal or planning in advance to take home part of your meal when eating out.

When making dietary changes it is important to consider only those that you believe you can maintain indefinitely. This means that you should not resort to fad diets or crash diet programs. Short (one to three day) fasts can be helpful to get back on track if you feel that a weight reduction program has stalled. An approach that has worked well for many is a lemonade fast. The recipe is the juice of one organic lemon in twenty ounces of water sweetened to taste with pure maple syrup (typically 1 to 2 tablespoons). The lemonade tends to prevent fatigue or sinking spells during the fast.

Getting your body moving for twenty to thirty minutes each day is important not because you will burn a specific number of calories but because doing so will improve your metabolism over the next 24 hours. It has been shown performing physical activity for five hours a week provides the maximum benefit in controlling weight.

Building muscles is also beneficial as energy is expended in the process of muscle repair and growth. Evidence now suggests than lifting weights once or at most twice weekly produces the best results. Up to six muscle groups can be worked per session, so up to twelve muscle groups may be worked per week. Using a weight that brings about complete muscle fatigue within 8 to 10 repetitions brings about the greatest gain in muscle strength over time.

Giving your body comprehensive nutritional support is critical to weight maintenance. When your body is receiving optimum amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids you will not experience the pica-like cravings.

Specific fats support weight loss and maintenance of an optimum body weight. These are omega-3 oils, such as those extracted from cold water fish, and medium chain triglycerides, which are found in food products such as coconut oil. Two fish oil capsules (Marine Lipids) should be taken twice daily. Coconut oil may be used in frying or used in the place of margarine in many recipes.

It is possible to win the Battle of the Bulge. It must, however, be viewed as a prolonged battle rather than a brief skirmish. Winston Churchill put it like this: Never, never, never give up!
