QUICK TIP: Resetting your Thyroid - Dr. Mindy Pelz

QUICK TIP: Resetting your Thyroid

Your thyroid starts to malfunction when you have the perfect storm of three conditions; damage to your nervous system, damage to your gut, and overload of toxins.

In order to get your thyroid functioning again, you to look at the following areas: 

1. Your gut

Once hormones are released by your thyroid they become absorbed in your gut. If the microbiome of you gut is damaged you will not absorb these hormones. This is exactly what is happening to those of you who's thyroid hormones appear normal on a blood test, yet you have all the symptoms of a thyroid problem.

2. You neck curve

There are more thyroid problems today than ever. This is largely due to the changes in spinal curves that are occuring from sitting at computers for hours or being hunched over your smartphone. When your neck curve straightens out, it pinches the nerve at the base of the neck that carries information to the thyroid. Without proper information from the brain, you thyroid will begin to slow down. 

3. You toxic load

Of all the organs of your body, your thyroid is the most suseptible to toxins. Thyroid experts call it the canary in the coalmine. One way you know if your toxic load is high, is when you start to get blood tests showing that your thyroid hormones are off. One of the side effects of the toxic load on your thyroid is that it depletes your body of iodine. The thyroid needs iodine to function normally.

If you think your thyroid is not working correctly here are a few easy steps you can take to bring health back to this vital organ.

1. Take a probiotic to replenish good bacteria in your gut
2. Get an x-ray of your neck so that you know what your curve looks like. 
3. Take a high quality iodine supplement like the Thyroid Reset.
4. Download the EWG App - The Environmental Working Group's searchable database of toxic ingredients in cosmetic and personal care products.
