Thyroid and adrenals issues are huge in today’s society…thyroid

Many will claim that thyroid is underdiagnosed and missed by the various conventional tests, i.e., TSH, T3, and T4.

Causing everything from:

  • depression
  • mental fog
  • fatigue
  • weight gain
  • cancer
  • cholesterol issues
  • ADHD
  • and a huge number of other issues

While this may be true, there are all kinds of issues that may cause thyroid issues…

  • Liver dysfunction
  • Adrenal dysfunction
  • Poor glutathione
  • Poor gut function

to name a few…

In alternative medicine, you never treat the thyroid or adrenal independently, always together.  Let’s look at one of the reasons why…

Your thyroid produces 4 times as much T4 as it does T3 BUT the T3 is 4 times more powerful.

But the 80% of the conversion of T4 into T3 (which is needed for every cell of the body AND the brain) happens in the liver…if the liver isn’t functioning properly, the conversion isn’t happening!!

Next, if the adrenals are either hypo or hyper, then they interfere with the enzymes that do the conversion.

Simple to see, how just these two issues can hugely impact on the levels of T3 and T4.
