Erika Scwartz, MD was recently asked for a medical consult by a man who had grave health problems. To be specific, she examined the treatments and medications he used and decided to speak with his cardiology and see if he would approve to totally change his therapy.
The patient had excess weight, low thyroid and testosterone levels, and sleeping disorders which were caused by an eczema which was in advanced stage. After three weeks of trying to reach his cardiologist, she succeeded in the. Nevertheless, he was uncooperative ant told her that she didn’t know science and that he couldn’t talk to her. She told him that they had the identical medical degree, but then he hung up on her.
After this conversation, she decided to change his medication and try something new. She intended to improve his thyroid hormones levels and to stop his medication for the cholesterol.
T3 and T4 are the two thyroid hormones and they are the result of the work of the thyroid gland. These hormones travel thorough the bloodstream. They are responsible for providing energy and regulating the metabolism, but they also have influence on the body in general.
Hypothyroidism is the most common disease which is related to the thyroid and it happens when the gland fails to produce enough hormones necessary for the functions of the body.
Hypothyroidism can happen as a result of a number of external and internal factors. It has various symptoms such as brittle nails, dry skin, hair loss, fatigue, irregular body temperature, weight gain, poor reflexes, feeling cold, mood swings, and brain fog and so on.
Nevertheless, these symptoms can also be manifestations of other ailments or diseases and doctors usually do not think as the thyroid as a possible cause.
Mary Shomon, an expert and author, says that people who have high cholesterol levels or suffer from depression are given medications for that, but no one cares to check their thyroid and see if it is the root cause.
In order to test the thyroid hormones, there should be an appropriate test, since TSH only test the levels of the pituitary hormone in the blood.
Dr. Schwartz states that we all suffer because we treat individual symptoms and we never look inside our body or at the person as a whole.
The levels of the thyroid hormones should be examined individually, and it is very important to know if the T4 is turned into T3 and that T3 enters the cells so that it can control the body organs function.
The treatment that Dr. Schwartz suggested included changing everything, the diet, supplements, exercise and hormones. With her approach, the body is regarded as a whole and it provides excellent results with time.
The thyroid can be influenced by external and internal factors as well. Our environment is so toxic and there have been a great change in our lifestyles, according to Greg Emerson, MD.
The leading toxins are mycotoxins and mold, which happen as a result of several fungi types. We consume foods which are high in sugar, thus allowing for the mold to grow inside our bodies.
Hyperthyroidism or also known as an overactive thyroid is when the gland produces too much hormones. This leads to unexpected weight loss and an irregular or rapid heartbeat.
Nevertheless, hormonal balance can be restored by making several important changes in your lifestyle such as reducing stress, regularly exercise, eating diet which is rich in raw foods, and maintaining healthy relationship.
Dr. Schwartz notes that it is very important to listen to your body and what it is saying. If you properly sleep at night, eat the right food, get the right sun exposure, it will be easier for you to discover natural treatment which is proper.
According to Joseph Mercola, DO, the mindset is most likely responsible for the health and if we want to have excellent health, we need to work on a number of aspects.
