The thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland positioned on the front of the neck, on either side of the windpipe, directly below the “Adam’s apple.”
One’s entire blood supply filters through the thyroid gland once every hour. Any iodine in the blood is kept by the thyroid, which it will use to manufacture hormones.
A thyroid condition that is underactive is called hypothyroidism and is often marked by low iodine levels. It can manifest as a multitude of ailments and may be difficult to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Fatigue, brittle nails, coarse brittle hair, hair loss, headaches, poor short term memory, anxiety or panic attacks, low blood pressure, depression, low libido, pale, dry or coarse skin, high cholesterol, puffy eyes, dry eyes, blurry vision, frequent respiratory infection, decreased perspiration, poor skin tone, tingling hands, sensitivity to cold, weight gain, constipation, hair loss, puffy eye lids, low body temperature, wounds that are slow to heal, infertility, goiter, rheumatic pain, emotional disorders, allergies, missing lower portion of eyebrows, poor sleep, flu-like symptoms, hoarseness, hypersensitivity, and fluid retention are all possible indicators that thyroid secretions may be low. Heredity, viral infection, fluoridated water and some medications can all affect the thyroid adversely.
Nature provides herbs that can naturally support thyroid health, especially for an underactive thyroid, which are found in Thyrohypo - Thyroid Support Tincture:
Dulse contains Iodine a trace element needed for normal thyroid function in order to make thyroid stimulating hormone. Adequate iodine consumption also prevents and in some cases, helps reduce the presence of a goiter.
Oatstraw is very beneficial to the thyroid in many instances. It soothes nerves and depression associated with an underactive thyroid (Hypothyroidism).
Parsley Leaf is recommended to those who suffer from hypothyroidism because it is rich in vitamins, chlorophyll and minerals, including iodine. These are all elements that help combat anemia and fatigue.
Nettle is considered a thyroid tonic.
