The thyroid gland is one of the most important regulators of metabolism throughout the body. It is in turn regulated by the master glands of the entire endocrine system, the pituitary and the hypothalamus. The thyroid gland produces hormones from the amino acid tyrosine and iodine known appropriately as thyroid hormones. Using these signals, it can affect practically cell in the body in a wide variety of ways. Clearly it is essential to maintain normal thyroid function if one wishes to be healthy.
Unfortunately, many people suffer from thyroid difficulties. There are two general types of low thyroid function. One is the result of a variety of diseases such as infection or inflammation of the thyroid gland. This type of hypothyroidism can be diagnosed by standard laboratory tests and is usually treated by prescribing the most critical of the four thyroid hormones in drug form.
The second common problem sometimes called “subclinical hypothyroidism,” though this same is misleading. The truth is that the person with this condition does have symptoms of low thyroid function, thus the problem is not subclinical at all. However, standard laboratory tests do not detect any difficulty with the thyroid. Thus the most appropriate name for the condition might be “sublaboratory low thyroid function.” It has also been called Wilson’s syndrome. It is likely that Wilson’s syndrome results from a variety of environmental insults and is not caused directly by any disease. Wilson’s syndrome can manifest as excessive fatigue, inability to concentrate, depression, dry skin and hair loss, obesity, and many other seemingly unrelated problems. When one realizes that thyroid hormones affect every cell in the body, however, it becomes apparent that some problem with thyroid hormones could possibly lead to symptoms anywhere.
The Thyroid Support formula is designed to help maintain healthy thyroid gland metabolism. It is also designed to correct Wilson’s syndrome. This condition can only be diagnosed by a physician knowledgeable in natural medicine, and true disease-induced hypothyroidism must be ruled out first. Anyone who thinks he or she may have a metabolic condition such as persistent obesity that does not respond to diet and exercise therapy should consult with a physician of natural medicine to determine if Wilson’s syndrome might be involved.
