We now know that Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) radiation is affecting people’s health. Evidence shows that EMF damage is linked to Autism, low sperm counts, and DNA damage – to name a few (www.explorepub.com). Sources of EMF pollution include cordless phones, wireless phones, wiring in the walls, over and underground cables, lamps, and electrical outlets as well as computers, WI-FI hot spots, wireless printers and on and on. Most animals and humans are incredibly sensitive to even small EMF frequencies. Living cells interpret these exposures as normal cellular activity (heart rate, brain wave, cell division and cell signaling, etc.). But these man made electromagnetic exposures are not normal and have unusual signaling intensities, wave forms, and pulsing patterns detrimental to our health. The insidious thing is that we can’t feel, touch, or detect consciously these EMF’s but it is now clear that our cells are impacted. Sam Milham MD in his book “Dirty Electricity”, states that modern diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes may be triggered by EMF damage.

Some problems now being linked to EMF damage are: increased blood brain barrier permeability, depression, cardiovascular irregularities, DNA damage, hormone disruption, cognitive problems, metabolism changes, Autism, fertility impairment, Sleep Disorders, Immune Disorders, Learning Disorders, mineral deposit disruption, and a host of other neurological conditions. Listen to an interview with Dr. Rau at http://www.electromagnetichealth.org for more.

I strongly suggest that you read as much as you can on how to protect yourself from EMF by googling  – mercola.com – and type in links to his newsletters on the subject of EMF frequencies.

Studies have shown that thyroid hormones have effects on the quantity of systemic Serotonin levels. Serotonin is necessary to feel good and be happy. Thyroid hormones have been shown to increase bio-energetic metabolism in those suffering from major depressive disorder (MDD). Additionally, thyroid hormone activity has been shown to acitivate 5-HT2A serotonin receptors in the brain. This makes you feel good. Thyroid deficiencies lead to increased serotonin turnover (loss) in the brain stem as well as decreased upper brain (cortical) serotonin levels. These deficiencies lead to a global neuro-chemistry imbalance. Serotonin is also a messenger to the pituitary gland to release Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). When the messenger is lost the pituitary produces less TSH.

You see that there are feed back loops between the thyroid and the areas of the brain that produce neurotransmitters – in this case, Serotonin. Please call if you are suffering from MDD, fatigue, thinning eyebrows, brain fog, memory loss, hair loss, or cold hands or feet. It may be your brain/thyroid connection.

“Exposure to Fluoride may lower children’s intelligence” says the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (online Dec. 17,2010). This is the 24th study finding association between lower I.Q and fluoride, but this one has the most teeth because the authors controlled for key confounding variables. In addition the authors found correlation between fluoride and children’s blood health. Everything is pointing in the direction of fluoride being another tobacco scam. Remember when the tobacco industry “thanked us for smoking” with massive funds to “research” the safety of tobacco. See the case against fluoride at – http//fluoridealert.org/caseagainstfluoride.appendices.html -. Fluoride has repeatedly been linked to brain damage.

Other fluoride induced health problems include (1) increased lead absorption (2) disruption of synthesis of collagen (a basic protein building block for connective tissue in the body). (3) lethargy (4) hyperactivity (5) bone fractures and bone cancer (6) low thyroid function (7) decreased immune function (8) sperm damage (9) arthritis and (10) muscle disorders.

In November 2006 the American Dental Association sent out an alert to dentists and parents to “not use fluoridated tap water to make infant formula”. The Center for Disease Control seconded the motion.

Low levels of the thyroid hormone T3 (triiodothyronine) are now believed to be associated with Cardiovascular Disease. Research indicates that T3 levels exert direct and acute effects on the resistance of heart vessels by enhancing endothelial (the lining of the blood vessels) function and the ability of norepinephrine (noradrenaline) to induce vasoconstriction (narrowing of the blood vessels). Studies strongly indicate the primary role of T3 levels on the risk for cardiovascular disease.

Subclinical Hypothyroidism is related to Cardiovascular Disease, and by subclinical we mean that the individual does not have the characteristic symptoms of hypothyroidism – yet. Those with subclinical hypothyroidism have been found to have endothelial dysfunction resulting from and loss of nitiric oxide ( which participates in chemical signaling functions).

At Brown Chiropractic Neurology, we look at health through the windows of the central nervous system (a complete neurological exam) and the metabolic systems (through blood, saliva, stool, etc analysis). So many symptoms mimic so many diseases, and only by a thorough analysis can the root cause be discovered.

When the brain or the thyroid degenerate, the most common symptoms are BRAIN FOG, DEPRESSION and FATIGUE. In our office, we notice when a new patient comes in and “had trouble getting here”, comes in late, has trouble filling out paperwork, and taking their history takes forever. The brain is just not working and the question is why? Science has proven without a doubt that depression stems from decreased frontal lobe activation. The frontal lobe is the ” lobe of humanity” or the lobe of executive function and it separates us from the beasts of the field. There are basically two models for depression: (1) thyroid malfunction and (2) cytokine inflammation leading to decreased nerve conduction. Cytokines are small signaling molecules secreted by glial cells. The majority of depressed patients have a leaky gut and inflammation. The gut is considered the 2nd brain and is responsible for 70% of immune function. Cytokine inflammation caused by abnormal glial cell activity leads to brain fog. Glial cells are the “scaffolding” of the brain, keeping neurons alive. Some thyroid patients will not respond to anti-depressants until inflammatory cytokines and leaky gut are calmed down. With persistent brain fog, healthy glial cell activity must be restored. With gluten (wheat, hops, etc.) exposure, brain fog may last from days to weeks. Gluten exposures will break down the blood brain barrier (BBB) allowing toxins that should normally be screened out to pass into the brain. This is why we recommend all thyroid patients get on a gluten free diet. people suffering  with hypothyroidism will produce less serotonin (the feel good neurotransmitter) so they become depressed. THE CURRENT DRUG MODEL DOES NOTHING TO RAISE THE AMOUNT OF NEUROTRANSMITTER but in functional medicine we can. The drugs’ temporary effects last no more than two years because they burn out. Hashimoto’s disease (autoimmune hypothyroid) triggers blood sugar, gluten, and adrenal problems resulting in inflammatory cytokine activity. Thyroid malfunction also leads to hippocampus degeneration. The hippocampus is a small but important cross road from the primitive limbic system to  the temporal lobe of the brain and is critical in preserving short to long term memory.

If you suffer from brain fog, depression, and fatigue and would like a drug-free approach to solving these problems or you have not responded to standard medical care, we’d like to help.

Thyroid diseases can be associated with gut motility problems. Sometimes these GI symptoms are the only clue of a thyroid disease and they can be the very first symptoms of a thyroid disease. Either hyper- or hypo – thyroidism can impair esophageal motility interfering with peristalsis. Thyroid hormone receptors influence brain activity (neuronal centers) and can contribute to visceral disorders.

After eating, hyperthyroid patients have delayed gastric emptying. Hypothyroidism may also cause a delay in gastric emptying. Diarrhea and malabsorption are usually associated with hyperthyroidism, whereas constipation is usually associated with hypothyroidism. GI transit time and intestinal absorption rates are usually reduced in hypothyroid states.

If you are suffering from low (hypothyroid) or high (hyperthyroid) function and are looking for drug free care, we would like to help.
