The Thyroid


The thyroid is a very important endocrine gland. Problems with the thyroid gland are extremely common. It has been estimated that as many as one and a half billion people in the world are at risk for thyroid problems. Hypothyroid (low thyroid function) is the most common thyroid malfunction, but it is also possible to have a hyperactive thyroid gland. We'll address both.


Hypothyroid
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

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.

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, it 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
