Some older man who suffer from thyroid and has a low testosterone came to E. Schwartz (M.D. for medical advice), she knew that he has wrong therapy. He also has problem with overweight and inflammation of the skin eczema.
Dr. Schwartz immediately gave him a therapy for boosting his thyroid hormones and cut off his medications for cholesterol. She corrected the cholesterol levels in a natural way.
The thyroid gland creates 2 thyroid hormones – triodothyronine or T3 and thyroxine or T4. Hypothyroidism is a thyroid gland problem which can be caused by internal and external factors, and lead to Hashimoto’s disease, which is an autoimmune condition when the immune system is attacking the thyroid.
Common symptoms of hypothyroidism are brittle nails, weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, dry skin, mood swings and depression.
There are many people suffering from depression and high cholesterol due to thyroid issues and doctors are still treating them with antidepressants and cholesterol meds. And the test known as thyroid stimulating hormone test (TSH) is not always correct.
This test measures the TSH – pituitary hormone levels in the blood. The pituitary hormone tells the thyroid gland to release the thyroid hormones. This is why the TSH test can’t determine the actual amount of T3 and T4 in the blood.
So if the patient fights the symptoms with the meds, the side effects may be acuter then the primal illness.
And this is happening because the symptoms are treated instead the root cause. A better way is to test the amount of T3 and T4 in the blood independently. We can take control and normalize the thyroid hormone and other hormone levels with a right diet, regular exercise and less stress.
Doctors have created some question to ask yourself and if you answer them honestly, then you are doing the first step in solving the thyroid disorder issue.
Do you eat the right food?
Do you drink the right water?
Do you get enough sleep?
Do you get enough sun?
Do you exercise enough?
Do you get medicines in your food?
If you have problems with sleeping at night, then why is that so?
Do you drink too much water and maybe you wake up because of that?
Do you exercise late?
Do you eat late?
Do you consume unhealthy food often?
Do you sleep with the TV on?
