There is an epidemic growing in America of people with thyroid and adrenal deficiency.
I see it more and more in the dental practice with patients living with jaw clenching, headaches, depression, difficulty concentrating, weight gain, constipation, arthritis, and muscle and joint pain.
All these can be signs of low adrenal and thyroid function. Your medical lab tests can even be in the normal range but your cells and tissues are resistant to the hormones your body is making.
This resistance to the hormones can be inherited or the result of environmental toxins. Fluoride exposure is extremely damaging to your thyroid hormone function because it substitutes for the iodine that is used to make your thyroid hormone, thyrosine.
Other environmental toxins include: cigarettes, allergens, viruses, bacteria, aspartame, gluten, EMF, excess sugar, and many other factors.
There are functional and complementary medical doctors that specialize in treating these kinds of conditions and you do not have to put up with these conditions. Go to www.getrealthyroid.com or watch the many YouTube videos online, for free, on the thyroid, adrenals and your health. Recommended reading: “Hypothyroidism: Type 2” by Mark Starr, MD.
