CAUTIONS & CONTRAINDICATIONS:
If the thyroid gland is too weak, you may have to add a specific desiccated glandular (protomorphigen).
Where inflammation and bone deterioration is present (as in arthritis, etc.), the thyroid and adrenal glands are always underactive.
Most thyroid medications (especially Synthroid) do not affect T4 to T3 conversion well. Which means the thyroid is always hypoactive even when blood serum levels of TSH’s, T4’s and T3’s appear to be normal (see Wilson’s Syndrome). Taking Synthroid only serves to weaken the thyroid and does nothing to stop bone (calcium) loss.
Blood hormone work is the most inaccurate tool for determining proper thyroid function. Use the Basal Temperature Study (included in the Tools for Healthy Living Section of this workbook) for more accurate indicator of thyroid function.
A great many people have hypo (underactive) thyroids because of congestion (mucus) build-up in the thyroid tissues due to consuming dairy products. Simply detox this congestion out (can take a while...). You may wish to add one or two Lymphatic formulas, the Kidney/Bladder and a Stomach & Bowel formula for optimum results.
TSH’s can reflect either a thyroid or a pituitary problem.
The thyroid gland controls your skeletal and connective tissues (structural system), rate of metabolism and digestion, diaphoresis (sweating), skin, and everything calcium affects, just to name a few of the jobs that the thyroid is responsible for.
