What Causes Problems with Your Thyroid? Get to the Root of your Symptoms in Raleigh
At this point in our history more than 20 MILLION people in the U.S. have some sort of issue with their Thyroid and 60% of those people are not even aware they have any issues. This little butterfly shaped gland that sits in the front of the neck is vital to every cell, organ, and system in the body, along with regulating your metabolism. You can be fit and eat healthy in Raleigh, and somehow still manage to have a thyroid problem.
I am sure you have been told to possibly first look at your diet. For example, iodine is needed to produce thyroid hormones, and you may not be getting enough of it. Or you may have been told to look at gluten since this has been linked to Hashimoto’s disease. JUST SO YOU KNOW, looking at your diet and eating habits is always a good idea. Of course, you will start to feel better from cleaning up your diet. However, this may not permanently solve your problem even if your symptoms lessen.
Did you know that no matter how clean you eat or how organic your food is, that you are ingesting heavy metals into your body. That is right… There is no regulation for heavy metals in your food, even if it is organic. Organic food has to do with pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, etc. With that said, perhaps heavy metals are affecting your thyroid function. Again, we are still guessing what is going on and what the root cause to your thyroid issues.
At this point, you may be thinking about getting a TSH Blood test or have had one, but as a result, doctors are taught to rely on an outdated model of testing TSH and T4, and simply replacing thyroid hormone with medication, never once asking the question of what is causing the dysfunction in the first place. Now, Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Kelly Halderman are experts with thyroid disorders and have explored it from a new perspective, looking at the function of the cells, rather than the gland itself. This means we want to get a whole picture of the body and not just look at something that is less than 2 inches big.
What you need is a truly functional test that will show you if the thyroid hyper regulating, hypo regulating, inflamed, or even toxic. Additionally, you want to see any other aspects of the body that may be contributing in a negative way with your thyroid health. Now I say other aspects of the body because every system and organ is connected to one another, and feeds each other in different ways.
Like I said earlier, the Thyroid’s function is VITAL for every cell, organ, and system in the body. In order to see all the moving parts and get to the root cause of any current or future concerns, then Whole Body Regulation Thermography would be a great tool to use. This tool can help identify your symptoms origin and show you what to start paying attention to even before you experience the symptom.
Even though this advanced version of thermography can determine the function of your brain, entire digestive system, heart, lungs, lymphatic system, breast for women, and prostate for men, the neck region data will give you a lot of insight into thyroid function. See below.
M1 & M2: These points are the Mastoids.
T1 & T2: These points are the Tonsils.
L1, L2, L3, L4: The points are the lymphatic system.
Td1 & Td2: These points are the Thyroid.
Additionally, here are the unique signatures that the thermogram report will tell you about the neck region. Each signature consists of a compilation of data collected during the test that gives you specific patterns of health based on a 200,000-patient study.
There is no reason for you to continue to be a part of the current statistics on any type of cardiovascular disease nor should you wait to see if you will become part of it one day. The 1st step is to understand the concern you may be having and all the potential aspects of the body that may be affecting the thyroid or that your thyroid is affecting. Like I said, all the organs and systems in the body talk to each other and affect one another. Let us figure out any current or future concerns together.
