Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck, just above your collarbone. It is one of your endocrine glands, which make hormones. Through the hormones, it produces, the thyroid gland influences almost all of the metabolic processes in your body.
The thyroid’s hormones regulate vital body functions, including:
- Heart rate
- Central and peripheral nervous systems
- Body weight
- Muscle strength
- Menstrual cycles
- Body temperature
- Cholesterol levels
- Much more!
The thyroid uses iodine to produce vital hormones. Thyroxine, also known as T4, is the primary hormone produced by the gland. After delivery via the bloodstream to the body’s tissues, a small portion of the T4 released from the gland is converted to triiodothyronine (T3), which is the most active hormone.
If you have this problem you might have symptoms like weight gain, fragile nails, dry skin, fatigue, hair loss, mood swings and depression too.
The medical director, Erika Schwartz wanted to talk to a cardiologist of an elder patient. This patient addressed her after many futile meds and his symptoms unchanged about a health issue regarding the thyroid. Schwarz even says there is a better way to treat her patients. She considers diet and hormones and all the rest.
Also, she added that when she gives patients special therapy they feel good. If they start to feel good, they easily change diet habits for better and do workouts.
