Go From Fatigued to Fantastic
Millions of women each year seek relief for hormonal issues, including hot flashes, night sweats, hormonal migraines, PMS, weight gain, and foggy thinking. These symptoms are lumped together into the hormonal imbalance pigeonhole.
When we experience continual stress, the resulting ongoing secretion of the stress hormone Cortisol from the adrenal glands has a negative impact on the thyroid gland.
The adrenal glands are involved in manufacturing numerous hormones; blood sugar regulation; the regulation of the body's minerals; modulating the immune system; producing and maintaining the body's energy levels in conjunction with the thyroid; and producing stress-monitoring hormones.
The adrenals, considered to be the body's shock absorbers, are the core of the endocrine stress response system. Overtaxed adrenals can lead to hypothyroidism, which has a direct effect on women's hormonal health. The thyroid, which regulates metabolism, may tune down its hormonal activity in an attempt to reverse adrenal overdrive.
The thyroid is hailed as "the master gland" of our complex and interdependent endocrine system. Put another way, it is the spoon that stirs our hormonal soup. It produces several hormones that transport energy into every cell in the body and are vital for feeling happy, warm, and lithe. The gland is also acts as the boss of our metabolism. Which is why symptoms of metabolism include weight gain and fatigue, as well as constipation, depression, low body temperature, sleep disturbances, difficulty concentrating, edema- fluid retention, hair loss, joint aches, and light sensitivity.
One of the major consequences of decreased thyroid function is worsening of heart disease due impairment of muscle contraction and inhibition of pumping strength which eventually can lead to heart failure.
Due to the fact that thyroid hormones directly act on so many parts of the body, it is essential to follow up with proper lab tests if you self-identify a problem.
When you are tested, it is also a good idea to be checked for adrenal fatigue, since those with hypothyroidism often have some level of the condition and it can be difficult to treat the thyroid without assessing both systems.
The good news is that knowledge of proper diagnosis methods, dietary choices, lifestyle modifications and thyroid drug alternatives can help many people reclaim their health.
Would it surprise you to know that there are at least 11 different nutrients involved in the production of thyroid hormone?
We need optimal amounts of all eleven nutrients for this to occur.
Supplements that are REQUIRED for thyroid hormone production include:
• Tyrosine • Iron • Iodine • Zinc • Selenium • Vitamin E • Vitamin B2 • Vitamin B3 • Vitamin B6 • Vitamin C • Vitamin D
At Rejuvii we are offering intravenous (IV) drips that contain most of the above listed vitamins, minerals, and amino acids and are very effective in boosting thyroid hormone production.
Good dietary sources of zinc include seafood (especially oysters), beef, oatmeal, chicken, liver, spinach, nuts and seeds. Copper is mainly found in liver and other organ meats, eggs, yeast, beans, nuts and seeds.
One of the best natural sources of selenium is Brazil nuts, especially ones that have not been shelled.
Tyrosine, an amino acid, is used as a precursor for making thyroid hormone, and a deficiency can contribute to low thyroid function. Low-protein diets can be insufficient for providing adequate tyrosine. Supplementation has therapeutic benefits.
Iodine is also an important building block for thyroid hormone. Good sources include sea fish, sea vegetables and iodized salt.
Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to normal thyroid function as well, so a diet rich in balanced amounts of them is important. Fish and fish oils provide excellent forms of omega-3s as well as vitamin A, which improves thyroid receptor binding and thyroid hormone activity.
Eat high-quality free-range, organic or wild protein. Your plate at lunch and dinner should contain a piece of protein and lots of green vegetables.
Breakfast should be predominantly protein, such as boiled or poached free-range eggs, a protein shake, yogurt with protein powder added, or a chicken breast.
Avoid refined foods at breakfast, including breads and cereals, and concentrated carbohydrates such as instant oatmeal and fruit juices.
The thyroid needs iodine to make thyroid hormones. Iodine-rich foods include beef, lamb, and beef liver (hormone free); eggs; raw nuts and seeds; seafood (such as clams, oysters, sardines, and other saltwater fish), fruits and vegetables, especially green peppers, lettuce, and pineapple. Raisins contain iodine as well. Avoid all soy foods as they contain goitrogens, which cause a decrease in iodine absorption. Use only pure, cold-pressed organic oils, including flaxseed and extra virgin olive oil, Avoid all artificial sweeteners -use only natural sweeteners .
Exercise daily because daily exercises stimulate thyroid gland function and increases tissue sensitivity' to thyroid hormone. Take Ashwaganda and B complex daily, as well as probiotic supplement. Use essential oils such as Frankincense, Lemongrass, and Myrrh. Some women find that nutritional supplements can help thyroid hormone levels normalize quickly without medications.
These are not to be used in place of the thyroid hormone your doctor has prescribed, but in addition to it. There are many great, all natural products on the market that could be used as a supplement.
One of those supplements is Thyrostal by Forest Organics which is all organic, natural supplement that seems to demonstrate a significant improvement in patients with low thyroid function.
