A person who had serious medical conditions asked for an advice by a MD called Erika Schwartz. She saw his treatments as well as his medicines and decided to talk to his cardiologists because she wanted to suggest him a completely different therapy.
The patient had a very advanced eczema with an unbearable itching, low thyroid levels, decreased testosterone, excess of weight as well as sleeping disorders.
Eventually, the cardiologist didn’t agree to change the medicines for the eczema so the patient decided to try and find another cardiologist. This one decided to increase the level of the thyroid hormones and stopped the medicines used against cholesterol.
The hormones which were corrected were the ones that managed to keep the level of cholesterol low in this patient naturally.
The thyroid gland is the one which produces thyroid hormones. This endocrine gland is shaped like a butterfly and is positioned in the lower front of our neck.
There are 2 thyroid hormones called triiodothyronine and thyroxine or also called T3 and T4. T4 goes into our organs through our bloodstream since it is turned into active T3 in our cells. It has the ability to provide energy and regulate our metabolism, but it’s also extremely important for our whole body because all of our organs function optimally because of it.
When our thyroid is underactive, the condition which appears is called hypothyroidism. Then, the gland doesn’t produce enough hormones and can’t regulate all of the functions in our body it should.
It causes the appearance of Hashimoto’s disease which is autoimmune. During this disease, the thyroid becomes attacked by the immune system itself.
Numerous symptoms can show it like: poor reflexes, body temperature irregularities, dry skin, fatigue, feeling cold, brittle nails, weight gain, hair loss, brain fog, depression, mood swings, etc.
Other diseases can also be provoked by these symptoms and that’s why doctors often mistake thyroid imbalance disbalance as a potential cause.
The conventional test which shows the amount of a pituitary hormone, TS, in the blood isn’t very reliable as it doesn’t show the correct amount of T3 or T4 in our blood.
Numerous patients with these symptoms have already had many of the symptoms, but their TSH result was normal. Their doctor prescribes medicines for other conditions and then they suffer from various side-effects.
In order for a better diagnose, the doctor should examine the levels of T3 and T4 individually.T4 should turn into active T3 while T3 enters our cells so that it can perform the regulation of the function of our body organs and that’s the most essential thing of all.
According to Dr. Schwartz, the treatment should include exercise, diet, supplements and hormones. She regards the body as a whole and that’s why her approach has amazing results.
The ability of our thyroid to function well is extremely important. If we don’t get enough oxygen, our brain won’t function well, nor we’ll have other processes that will function well.
Today, we live in a stressful world and a very toxic environment. That’s why, we need to change our everyday habits as well as our nutrition. One thing that is very dangerous for our thyroid gland are toxins, fungi and bacteria. Unfortunately, nowadays, our food is abundant in mycotoxins.
It also contains plenty of sugar which only spreads the mold in our body.
When the thyroid is overactive, the condition which appears is called hyperthyroidism. It can cause sudden weight loss or irregular or rapid heartbeat.
Because of this imbalance of the hormones, we must make some important changes in our lifestyle. Try to have a diet that will be rich in raw foods, have healthy relationships, exercise regularly and of course, reduce stress!
Another important thing is to drink plenty of water, sleep well and get the proper amount of sun. Your body will always tell you right. Try to use natural treatments which don’t cause any side-effects.
All of these things will help you boost your levels of energy, decrease the process of aging and improve your complete health. The key is to restart your thyroid using the proper nutrients!
