[NaturalNews] Thyroid hormones regulate other hormones, including the adrenal glands’ adrenaline production. Thyroid gland hormones also influence cellular metabolism, digestion, libido, and overall energy.
There are three maladies involving the thyroid. Not everyone knows he or she has a thyroid issue even while exhibiting low energy or the inability to lose weight. One is an autoimmune disease and the other two are conditions.
The disease is known as Hashimoto’s disease, which actually slowly destroys the thyroid while potentially creating both conditions. In addition to both conditions alternating with Hashimoto’s disease, a swollen thyroid or goiter which becomes evident.
The two conditions are hypothyroidism, not enough hormone production or utlization, and the other is hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid that causes too much hormone production.
Hypothyroidism is the more common condition with its symptoms of low energy, fatigue, low libido, overweight problems and sensitivity to cold.
Hyperthyroidism can lead to nervousness, restlessness, manic behavior, and difficulty concentrating. Goiter and weight loss can also manifest. Pre-Nazi Germany used sodium fluoride to reduce the excessive hormone production of hyperthyroid patients.
Now, fluoride is in over 75 percent of USA’s public water supplies, to keep American citizens dumb and docile with decreased thyroid hormone production.
It’s a good idea to eliminate the possibility of Hashimoto’s disease before pursuing hypothyroid solutions because the solutions for hypothyroidism are actually dangerous for those with Hashimoto’s disease.
Hypothyroidism signs and remedies
Hypothyroidism may be the most common hormonal deficiency in the Western world. It can even occur when the thyroid does produce enough thyroid hormones that are not utilized properly. That’s known as thyroid hormone resistance, which produces the same symptoms as hypothyroidism.
Many who think they have fibromyalgia may simply have one of these two manifestations of hypothyroidism. According to Dr. John Lowe, conventional testing can fall short of diagnosing hypothyroidism, especially for those with thyroid hormone resistance.
