The Metabolism Regulator
The thyroid and its related hormones regulate our metabolism, digestive function, brain function and bone health.
The thyroid can be disrupted in two ways, either becoming overactive (hyperthyroidism) or more commonly underactive (hypothyroidism).
Ensuring the thyroid is functioning optimally is vital for good health and longevity.
There are many factors that can negatively influence healthy thyroid functioning including:
Nutritional deficiencies, adrenal health, inflammation, stress, gut health and immune function
Symptoms of thyroid disfunction include:
Sudden weight gain or loss
Poor memory & foggy brain
Dry hair, prone to falling out
Bloating, flatulence & constipation
Always feeling cold or overheating
Crave sugary starchy food
Severe PMS symptoms
Naturopathic medicine is an excellent tool in addressing the underlying causes of thyroid issues.
