Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner
The thyroid is a crucial organ in the human body that has a direct effect on metabolic function and is often overlooked in many weight loss programs. But by harnessing the power of your thyroid and resetting it completely, you can regulate your entire body system and increase your results in your weight loss journey. But what exactly is the thyroid, what does it do, and how can you reset it? See below to find out!
What is the Thyroid, and What Does it Do?
The thyroid is an endocrine gland shaped like a butterfly and located at the base of the front of the neck. The thyroid works on the body by releasing two essential hormones into the bloodstream called triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones impact the body by regulating the metabolism and providing energy for various biological functions. Although these hormones have a focused effect, they actually end up affecting the entire body and greatly assist in overall organ function.
There are numerous health issues linked to the thyroid, but the most common problem is hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is essentially when the thyroid is not producing enough hormones for the body. This illness can result from either internal or external conditions. Common symptoms of hypothyroidism are dry skin, fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, poor reflexes, depression, mood swings, and more. To see if you are suffering from hypothyroidism, make sure to check with your doctor.
Thyroid issues are often hard to diagnose, though, because many of the symptoms overlap with other health issues such as depression or high cholesterol. Thyroid issues can also be challenging to diagnose due to a significant flaw in the testing process in which it actually measures pituitary hormones rather than thyroid hormones directly.
How You Can Improve Thyroid Functioning
The primary way to impact your thyroid functioning is through making lifestyle changes in combination with treatments prescribed by your doctor. By altering your diet and exercise in conjunction with medication or supplements, it targets your thyroid from multiple angles and skyrockets your overall health. The best way to regulate your thyroid with lifestyle factors is by eating an abundance of fruits and vegetables, getting regular exercise, reducing stress, and encouraging healthy relationships with others. Through these simple lifestyle changes, you can begin resetting your thyroid and living a happier and healthier life overall!
