Functions of the thyroid

(8) Moods and emotions – hypothyroidism causes adrenal weakness and as a result the adrenal don’t have healthy communication with the part of the brain called hypothalamus/pituitary/adrenal (HPA) axis. With poor HPA functoin, fat doesn’t burn resulting in weight gain. Also serotonin and dopamine aren’t produced in proper ratios resulting in depression, anxiety, and lethargy.

(9) Proper stomach acidity – proper stomach acid prevents reflux and heartburn because you can completely digest your food. Poorly digested food lingers in gut and rots up into the esophagus causing heartburn. HCL or hydrochloric acid is what prevents gut rot and prevents bad guys such as parasites, viruses, and bacteria from dominating the digestive system and making you miserable. In hypothyroid states, the hormone gastrin decreases which leads to loss of HCL production.

(10) liver detoxificaton – when thyroid function is low, the liver enzymes that detoxify just don’t mature leading to poor waste detoxification and waste clearance.

(11) growth hormones -growth hormones (GH) regenerate cells and tissues (even in adults). Growth hormones are released from the pituitary when more growth or more cells are needed. Thyroid hormones are necessary for GH to make insulin like growth factor (IGF-1) and finish the task of growing or creating new cells.

Stay tuned for part 7 as thyroid functions continues….

In 1912, a German publication delineated the first Autoimmune Disease ever, Hashimoto’s Disease, named after the Japanese physician who first described it. Since that time, Autoimmune Diseases, which were once rare, are accelerating at a disturbing rate. Why does an immune system turn on the person and attack HIM or HER instead of the toxic invader. Why does the body tag its own tissue as an enemy? In functional medicine, we believe that the stresses of modern life, especially in America, have led to this near catastrophic plague that traditional medicine has no answer for. To the best of our knowledge today, once your body identifies its own cells as foreign, then it is there for life. The treatment is to support the immune system with healthy doses of Vitamin D, Glutathionne, Super Oxicide Dismutase, and all the other known immune boosting supplements. Reducing stress is also a lifestyle necessity for all Autoimmune patients. Stress comes in many forms (psychological, environmental, nutritional, etc.). 20% of Americans have Autoimmune Diseases and 75% of those are women. 90% of Hypothyroid patients are Autoimmune.

Eat 3-5 servings of both vegetables and fruits each day and avoid the 3 white poisons – sugar, white flour, and salt. It is estimated that, regardless of
who “wins” the health care coverage battle, the sick care costs in America will bankrupt the country. The solution to this crisis is to reduce stress, clean up the diets, and exercise properly. It sounds so simple but it is not. America is a stressed out society more than any in history. Our food sources contain less and less nutritional value and we exercise less than most civilizations in history.

Instead of aerobics for a warm up routine, perform the following stretches to start your exercise routine: side bends, squats, toes touches, horizontal arms, vertical arms, shoulder shrugs, head rotations, head tilts, waist circles, arm circles and waist circles. Start slow and gradually increase the speed and range with each repetition. Do 10 of each and you will prevent injury while getting a better workout.
