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.

If you have wondered if chiropractic natural nutritional approaches can help you, see a chiropractor or chiropractors. Better yet, see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself Dr. Scott Brown.
