We all know that the thyroid secretes important hormones to regulate the metabolic rate but did you know that this small gland affects virtually all the systems of the human body?
The functions of the thyroid is not limited to producing hormones. It plays key role in the digestive, skeletal, and circulatory system, just to name a few. This report outline the profound effects of the thyroid gland to overall health!
Have you ever wondered how can the thyroid, such a small butterfly shaped gland be responsible of so many negative symptoms that affect your entire metabolism? This happens because the thyroid functions are interconnected with each system in the organism. If the thyroid doesn’t work well, neither do you and you can’t possibly feel well.
Thyroid disease has been on the rise for the past few decades, yet many thyroid dysfunctions are not correctly diagnosed or are diagnosed too late. The thyroid hormone is found in each cell of your body and this is a major reason many experts believe the conventional way of diagnosing thyroid illnesses is not precise: measuring TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) exclusively from blood doesn’t reflect the intracellular level of the hormone. Additionally, the thyroid gland and the hormones it is utilizing don’t exist in isolation inside the organism. This is why it is necessary to evaluate the functional relationships between the thyroid and various other organs, glands and systems.
