Brain degeneration and sleep

There has been an explosion in research on brain function; and, it is largely due to this rising number of Dementia and Alzheimer’s victims. New discoveries about the powerful effects of nutrients, amino acids, bio-flavinoids, and herbs are being published frequently. We now understand how bad guts, diets, adrenals, and blood sugar lead to inflammation and degeneration of the brain.  Improving our diet and exercise and decreasing stress, coupled with supplementing with specific nutrients, can put the brakes on brain inflammation and degeneration. By supporting the thyroid, we also support the brain. An unsupported thyroid almost guarantees some form of brain degeneration.

When the brain degenerates, the common symptoms include fatigue, brain fog, depression, and insomnia. Insomnia is associated with so many bodily breakdowns because almost all diseases lead to adrenal stress. Some insomniacs will never respond to sleep medications or natural remedies. The reason is that the root cause is not being addressed. Only by looking at a comprehensive history and examination which may include blood, saliva, and stool analysis can the right course of treatment begin.

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.

Sweet potatoes, kale, broccoli, sunflower seeds, black beans, squash, cabbage, and almonds are foods we should eat daily for optimum health. Foods that should be avoided include fried foods, processed foods, junk foods, sodas (especially those containing corn syrup and “diet” ingredients). Take one day a week, for yourself, to do nothing but have fun.

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.

Hypothyroidism treated with prescription thyroid hormones is rarely successful. There are numerous reasons why the thyroid is under active including a sluggish pituitary gland, poor gut function, and immune dysregulation. It would surprise most people to know the most common
cause of Hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s Disease, an Autoimmune Disorder that destroys the thyroid. This means that a person’s immune system against foreign invaders tagged its own tissue for termination. Sadly, the traditional medical system doesn’t test for autoimmunity because the only treatment (steroids) is worse than the disease. So the thyroid is treated symptomatically to temporarily reduce symptoms while the autoimmune attack continues to destroy the thyroid. Nutritionally supporting the thyroid is important because many body systems can become impaired due to poor thyroid function.

(1) DO look at the labels and know which poison additives to avoid.

(2) DO shop the outer ring of the store where the healthier foods are located.

(3) DO go to the vegetable section and get as many different colored foods as possible. They each have different anti-oxidant qualities.
