The thyroid is one of the most amazing and most complex glands in the body. It is largely responsible for our metabolic health and deeply connected with our adrenal gland function, our sex hormone balance, basal body temperature, brain function and our weight. Hypothyroidism has become so common, some doctors are referring to it as an epidemic. This could be for various reasons such our diet and lifestyle, the toxins in our soil and environment and stress. More and more North Americans are being diagnosed with thyroid disease and put on thyroid medication to help correct thyroid hormone imbalances. Many people continue to experience symptoms even while on thyroid medication and there are many possible reasons for this. As well, many people experience symptoms of thyroid imbalances such as constipation or diarrhea, hair loss, lack of energy or anxious energy, cold hands and feet, brain fog, infertility, low body temperature, increased sugar cravings and inability to lose weight.
