Our thyroid produces thyroid hormones that influence every cell, tissue, and organ in our bodies. These hormones regulate out metabolism, organ function, heart rate, cholesterol, body weight, energy, muscle contraction, relaxation, skin, and hair texture. It also affects our bowel function, fertility, menstrual regularity, memory, mood, and other bodily processes.
Symptoms related to hypothyroidism:
•Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
•Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
•Extremely dry skin and hair loss
•Irregular menses, heavy menstrual bleeding
•Poor memory, depression, decreased libido, constipation, and slower mental processes
When the thyroid gland is unable to produce enough thyroid hormones called thyroxine as seen in the majority of my patients, they experience thyroid dysfunction. This is usually caused stressors in their life. When you are stressed the hormone estrogen rises, the cells become resistant to thyroxin and on a cellular level the body is not able to use the thyroxin. These cells become resistant and have to go back to the glands to rebalance. This can cause a depletion in iodine and hence we then experience thyroid disorder.
Working with both men and women to correct the internal balance is something I have extensive experience with. By combing Homeopathy, Nutrition, Herbs and Supplements the body is able to correct its imbalance and stabilize thyroid function!
