Meet Your Thyroid


It’s only the size of a golf ball, but its impact on your health is far-reaching. From weight issues to fatigue, anxiety to digestion, the thyroid gland plays a huge role in your overall health and wellbeing.

Next week I will share why your initial testing for thyroid function that you got from your GP may not be accurate in determining your thyroid health. Get a sneak preview here.

This week, I want to help you understand how your thyroid works, so you know what can be done to improve its function. Click here to download the image

Now stay with me, because it is a complex process, but it’s really worth understanding: 

The point of explaining this process is there is a lot that goes into having a healthy thyroid and plenty can go wrong along the way. Many people have deficiencies in a lot of the essential nutrients required for a healthy thyroid, which can interfere with the process.

If you are worried about your thyroid health, I would recommend:

  • Cutting down (or out) gluten and dairy products – I often find that gluten and casein can interfere in the thyroid process.
  • Get tested for nutrients essential for a healthy thyroid – iron, iodine, zinc, selenium and vitamin D.
  • Get a blood test – make sure it includes TSH, T4, T3 and if you are under high levels of stress, reverse T3. Also to rule out autoimmune thyroid, I would recommend getting your thyroid antibody levels checked too.

We can help you with all the steps required to get your thyroid back into shape. If you still have some questions, why not call one of our Naturopaths for a FREE 15-minute chat. Book a time now on (02) 4961 4075.

Yours in health,

Peter
