Well, hearing that would cause some controversy in the medical profession, but, unfortunately it’s true. the thyroid is wrongly blamed.
AND HERE’S WHY.!
The thyroid functions like an organ because it manufactures something. NO other gland does that.
It manufactures a type of “grandmas” soap from potassium, then jells it with pancreatic thyroxine in the liver. This then dissolves excess fat and oils in the system to control your weight. if it manufactures too much you can’t gain weight, and not enough you will gain weight…simple.
Your thyroid does NOT make thyroxine as many believe, the pancreas does this. It originates in the pancreas from glycogen and then travels to the liver where it put’s the finishing touches on it and on then to the thyroid. BUT, this still doesn’t mean you can use it. It all depends on a couple of things. 1. how much glycogen your liver can make and 2. how much potassium is available. The energy can be used from thyroxine to rebuild the thyroid and excess thyroxine (free thyroxine) is used to make the old fashioned soup for metabolism. wonderful isn’t it.
It’s your voice and your breathing that causes the thyroid to work, churn and vibrate thats why it’s so close to your vocal chords. (well I didn’t know that) !!
If your kidneys aren’t eliminating properly the excess thyroxine will go to your stomach and give you nausea. .
LETS NOT FORGET ABOUT IODINE.
If there’s not enough iodine in the diet, the thyroid wont get any as the liver always takes it first. If it doesn’t get enough it will cause carcinoma cells in the organ as it cannot rid the thyroid of old worn out cells (thyro-toxin).
The thyroid gets the blame..again!
SO all this boils down to YOU CANNOT TREAT THE THYROID ALONE as it is dependent on so many other factors. Just taking thyroxine can be more harmful as it is dependent on the total function of the thyroid. If you have low sugars you cannot make glycogen to manufacture thyroxine to start the whole process off.
But that’s another story for later.
