Have you been gaining weight with no real explanation? Are you always cold? These are only some of the common symptoms of thyroid issues. People with incorrect thyroid levels often feel tired constantly, it seems like everything they eat affects them somehow, and depression and anxiety are always lurking.
You’ve likely heard of some of these conditions - Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, Graves’ disease, and Goiter. You may even know a person that suffers from one of them as well.
It’s important to understand that just because you have a thyroid issue doesn’t mean that you’ll forever be living on medications. There are healthy and natural alternatives that will provide you with the relief that you need to enjoy your life once again.
Let’s Take A Look At The Role Your Thyroid Plays In Your Body
The thyroid plays an essential role in your metabolism. It helps with your body’s growth and development by regulating the body functions and giving it the energy that it needs to function correctly. A healthy thyroid gland produces the exact amount of hormones that your body needs to function properly and when it doesn’t get the right amount, your body’s temperature is affected, as well as the function of your brain, heart, and muscles.
Your thyroid can produce too much or not enough of these hormones. Both result in many health-related problems, such as Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism - resulting in fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, dry skin, depression, menstrual irregularities, and gastrointestinal symptoms, sleep, and cognition issues. So, whether your thyroid produces too much or not enough hormones, they both interrupt the proper function of your body.
Living your life feeling this way it’s necessary.
Taking medications for the rest of your life is necessary either. Uncovering the underlying cause of your thyroid issue will help to find the best course of treatment - naturally. Our bodies are amazing, and when given the right conditions, it can reduce and eliminate the symptoms you have. What we eat doesn’t only keep us from getting sick. It can also help to manage your current conditions and improve them as well. Eliminating foods that trigger your symptoms, adding foods that reduce inflammation, and getting your blood flowing will ultimately lead you to feel more like yourself once again.
