Healing Your Thyroid Naturally

"Mucus is the root of all diseases - Dr. Sebi"
The thyroid gland is a vital butterfly-shaped organ that is located at the base of the neck, in the front of your throat. This small organ has these big functions:
- The thyroid gland acts as a hormonal gland that plays a major role in the metabolism control, growth and maturation in the human body by constantly releasing hormones into the bloodstream. It also regulates other bodily functions such as breathing.
- Heart rate
- Body weight
- Body temperature
- Muscle strength
- Menstrual cycles
- Cholesterol levels and
- Peripheral and central nervous system.
As you can see this little organ is a big of a deal, but what causes the thyroid to malfunction? Well, this can be a few things, according to the American Thyroid Association iodine deficiency can lead to enlargement of the thyroid and hypothyroidism. But that is not all, sugar also has a tremendous influence on your thyroid dysfunction:
- Causing Inflammation
- Irregular stress hormones
- Digestive problems; dysbiosis/infections
- Provoking autoimmunity
Sugar feeds the “bad” bacteria within the intestines, ultimately increasing the amount of the bad bacteria. As the number of bad bacteria increases, there is a decrease in the production of the T3 hormone, which is the active thyroid hormone in the intestines as well. The bad bacteria release endotoxins, which leads to leaky gut. This consequence has been said to lead to many thyroid dysfunctions and several autoimmune disorders.
Usually, the thyroid can malfunction due to three main reasons:
- Too little production of thyroid hormones.
- Too much thyroid hormone is produced.
- Extra flesh collects around the thyroid.
Hypothyroidism is a type of malfunctioning thyroid disorder. Hypothyroidism is a disorder that causes the thyroid to under perform. There are multiple potential causes of hypothyroidism, however, he most common cause of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune disorder.
Normally our body’s immune system protects us by attacking foreign invaders such as bacteria, virus or fungi. Regarding persons with autoimmune hypothyroidism disorder, their immune systems attacks normal tissues of the thyroid gland, thinking it is a foreign invader. The attacks cause the thyroid hormone that produces cells to malfunction and inhibit the gland’s ability to synthesize thyroid hormone. Due to the lack of production, there are not enough cells to meet the body’s need for the thyroid hormone.
The most common type of autoimmune hypothyroidism is called Hashimoto’s Disease, which causes the thyroid to shrink.
Another cause of a malfunctioning thyroid is inflammation, called thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s disease and viral infections can occasionally cause thyroiditis. In the case of a viral infection, the thyroid gland may release its entire supply of stored hormone at once into the blood. In turn, this causes the thyroid to become over-active (or, hyperthyroidism) for a short amount of time. After all the thyroid hormone is released, then the thyroid becomes under-active. Fortunately, about 75% of patients who suffer from viral thyroiditis regain proper thyroid function. Approximately 25%, however, are left with permanent hypothyroidism, but this is according to medical research.
Other causes of hypothyroidism include:
- Partial or complete removal of the thyroid
- Imbalance iodine levels
- Radioactive therapy
- Born without a thyroid
- Medication-induced thyroid issues
- Dysfunction of the pituitary gland
- Deficiencies of vitamin A, magnesium, iron
- Pregnancy among others.
So what is the solution?
As you may know, the food you eat may be mineral deficient and not just that may be producing too much mucus in the body and causing inflammation and not just in your thyroid but in other organs.
The Sea moss and Bladder-wrack mix is great for the thyroid because it is high in fiber, and offer 92 minerals – loaded with sulfur compounds, iodine, bromine, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, magnesium phosphorus, potassium, selenium, pectin, those in the brown family supply large amount of algin as well. Sea moss contains a wide range of essential nutrients including enzymes, nucleic acids, amino acids, trace elements and vitamin A, B, C, D, E and K complexes.
Sea moss addresses the bones (osteoporosis, arthritis) because of the content of calcium phosphate salt, form a major insoluble organic component of the bone, so intake of this salt can aid bone integrity and keep teeth strong and healthy.
Sea moss assist thyroid glands because it contains a significant amount of iodine, the thyroid glands exhibit a requirement for this atom group, and thus it is required for proper gland function, iodine plays an important role in our abilities to fight diseases. Germs can gain access to the blood through cuts in the skin, nasal membranes, and throat passages or via intestinal tract. Iodine has a limited anti-microbial role, as blood circulates through the body it passes through the thyroid gland, iodine is secreted into the bloodstream through the thyroid, where it kills weaker germs.
New Life client, Ms. Patricia Hanna started using Sea moss about four years ago. She was placed on medication for her thyroid condition 32 years prior to starting New Life products. Ms. Hanna took 3 doses of the Sea moss daily from August 2014 to October 2014. She went for blood tests in February 2015 and said: “Everything came out perfect.” Ms. Hanna came off of the mediation August 2014 and has not taken any more medication since she started taking the Sea moss. She was told by doctors that she would have to be on medication for her life, but from August 2014, she has not been on medication of any sort. Ms. Hanna also went on to say that when she was born she was “the sickest one in the family.” She was born without a gallbladder and her digestive system was not formed properly when she was born. Now, Ms. Hanna stated she can probably say that she is the healthiest one in the family. It is indeed amazing how your thyroid can be balanced once you put the nutrients that are lacking, so let’s take a look at some more foods that you can consume to support your thyroid:
Best foods for improving thyroid functions:
- All types of Seaweed/ Sea vegetables
- Brazil nuts
- Olive oil
- Whole grain food products
Always remember that the quality of food is very important for overall health. For more information feel free to contact us.
