The thyroid gland is part of the glandular or endocrine system. The English medical term derives from the Greek words: thyreos meaning "shield" and eidos meaning "form".
The thyroid gland is located at the front of the neck. It is slightly heavier in women than in men and gets bigger during pregnancy.
The thyroid gland secretes the hormone "thyroxine" directly into the bloodstream. Thyroxine is also called “thyroid hormone”. Thyroxine is a compound that contains iodine. In fact, the thyroid gland itself is primarily made up of the mineral iodine and therefore is vital and necessary for optimal thyroid health and function.
The function of the thyroid gland includes: regulation of normal body growth in infancy and childhood, regulation of metabolism, regulation of body temperature, maintenance of skeletal maturation; and the regulation of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. These above functions depend on thyroxine or thyroid hormone.
The thyroid gland in most Americans is sluggish or even totally inactive. This is especially true of American women. The inactive or underactive thyroid gland plays a major role in the modern American epidemic of obesity, especially in women, as an underactive or inactive thyroid gland impairs metabolism and therefore body heat which depends on the burning of fat converted from sugar.
Pathologies of the thyroid gland include: hypothyroidism, goiter, thyroid cancer, and thyroiditis to name a few. The lack of iodine plays a major role in the development of these diseases or pathologies.
Many women who suffer from thyroid problems seek medical help from doctors who prescribe them pharmaceutical drugs harmful to the thyroid with thyroid tracers on them mixed with radiation in order to radiate out and completely kill the thyroid gland. With Western Allopathic Medicine, their motto is, if you can't fix it, destroy it or remove it.
As the thyroid gland in the body corresponds to the fifth chakra (throat chakra), the imbalance of the fifth chakra also plays a role in thyroid problems. A chakra is a "wheel" or "vortex" that cannot be seen with the physical eye and is totally energy based. There are a total of seven major chakras located at certain organs of the body and the fifth chakra is located at the throat level. The color of the fifth chakra is light blue and blue, so any gemstone in that color (or even purple or purple) can help balance or correct imbalances in that particular chakra.
Blue colored stones include: blue lace agate, angelite, chrysocolla, celestite, azurite, and lapis lazuli. These stones can be placed directly on the thyroid gland for a few minutes to help correct any imbalance in this chakra.
You know it's very weird in the sense that the thyroid gland besides responding to the color blue, also responds to the color purple and the main mineral in the thyroid gland is iodine which is a term derived from the Greek word ioeides meaning "purple."
Iodine is a bluish-black solid that turns a purple vapor when heated. Therefore, the thyroid gland responds to blue and purple.
It is amazing to me how a single mineral such as iodine can cause some of the most horrible diseases. Did you know that cretinism (which includes drawfism, mental retardation, wide tongue, and muscle incoordination) is the result of a thyroid deficiency? Dwarfs (dwarfs) are a direct result of a lack of iodine in the mother's body during pregnancy. The same goes for mental retardation. Both of these conditions can be prevented by getting sufficient amounts of iodine in the body.
And have you ever seen someone with a goiter? It looks like a big tumor on the neck. Goiter is simply the result of severe iodine deficiency and can be reversed with adequate amounts of iodine in the daily diet.
Great natural sources of iodine include: white oak bark, black walnut shells, watercress, chickweed, and marine weeds, especially marine weeds, which include nori, dulse, kelp, Irish moss, Icelandic moss, bladderwrack, spirulina, chlorella, hiziki, Arame, Wakame, red seaweed and blue green algae for to name a few. In fact, sea grass is the most powerful and best food for humans because it provides us with all of the nutrients we need for optimal health. You don't have to eat fish as a source of iodine. Fish are rich in iodine because what do fish eat? Answer: algae! And what is sea grass rich in? Answer: IODINE! So leave the fish alone and let them live and just do like fish and eat sea herbs to get your natural iodine.
Iodized salt as a source of iodine? I do not think so! Although iodized salt may have reduced the incidence of cretinism in the United States, it has played a role in the development of high blood pressure in this country. Thus, cretinism was replaced by high blood pressure.
Instead of using iodized salt under the banner of sodium chloride (white table salt), it is better (and safer) to use sea salt (available at stores in Canada). natural foods).
Additionally, magnets can greatly help in thyroid problems by stimulating the thyroid gland. Simply place a magnet on the thyroid gland for a few hours and the thyroid will restart. This technique alone will reverse thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland).
If you are pregnant it is essential that you get adequate amounts of iodine.
Iodine is essential for anyone trying to lose weight (fat), naturally.
I have concocted an Iodine Phosphate Formula and a Thyroid Formula which are both high in natural iodine and contain the best herbs and sea herbs providing very high amounts of natural iodine. Not only do sea weeds provide iodine, but they have a mucilaginous and swelling effect in the colon which helps cleanse the colon and aids in stool formation, and most importantly, suppresses hunger (or hunger). 39; appetite), which is what obese people need to lose weight.
So to finish, just remember that: (1) every thyroid condition can be reversed or cured with natural iodine, and (2) pharmaceutical grade synthetic iodine is toxic and can break down. 39; prove fatal.
