Imagine you are rushing to catch the plane and suddenly the strap of your handbag breaks…..….. the contents of your life are scattered everywhere, exposed in the bright lights of the airport hall.
You bend down and as fast as you can, you pick up your car keys and mobile phone first,then your tissues, jewels, scribbled notes, lip stick, moisturizer…. then you rush off to catch the plane… there is no time to take an inventory to see if you have lost anything precious.
The stuff of nightmares, right?
And yet this same thing happens daily in many of the clients I see.
Take Lindsay my 43 year old client for instance.
She came to me for help because ‘she felt completely undone’.
These were some (but not all) of her symptoms:
- Low blood pressure,
- Deafness in one ear,
- Recurrent infections,
- Muscle and joint aches and pains
- Dry and flaky skin
- Poor circulation and intolerance to heat and cold.
- No libido
When we looked at Lindsay’s live and dried blood under the microscope, it became clear that Lindsay’s thyroid was the culprit.
Her life had ‘fallen apart’ because her thyroid wasn’t functioning properly.
It was working well enough to remain under the radar with the medical tests, and the way I run my tests is completely different.
Statistics show that 80% of Tasmanians have some sort of thyroid disorder….
Have a look around, that is 8 out of every 10 people you know!
It could even be you.
I don’t want you to suffer like Lindsay, so I would like you to check out this list of symptoms that indicate thyroid trouble.
- Weight gain/loss,
- Mood swings,
- Panic attacks,
- Mental sluggishness,
- Difficulty concentrating,
- Tumors and cysts of all kinds,
- High cholesterol levels,
- Menstrual problems,
- Blood sugar disorders,
- Carpal tunnel syndrome,
- Poor circulation,
- Cold hands and feet,
- Poor tolerance for changes in temperature,
- Fluid retention,
- Hair loss,
- Heart enlargement,
- Brittle nails or hair,
- Slow heart rate, even in non-athletes,
- Dry or flaky skin,
- Muscle weakness,
- Joint aches or pains.
As you can see, the thyroid is absolutely critical to the smooth functioning of your life!
Looking at the list above, it is easy to see that if your thyroid is like your favourite handbag.
You rely on it to keep your most trusty items safe and close to your heart.
But if you don’t look after it, and keep stuffing your handbag with more and more items, without giving it a good clean out every now and then, there might come a time that the strap will break, or a seam will burst.
You will know about it, because suddenly it will feel as if your body has been taken over by an alien.
And that’s if you are lucky.
You still have time to turn the tide around.
If you can relate to some, or all of the above symptoms, its time to take your thyroid under the loop.
Your thyroid needs iodine to function well.
From iodine and tyrosine (an amino acid) it makes T4, and your body will break that down into T3, which is the more active thyroid hormone.
Thyroid hormones are critical to life.
Every cell of your body depends upon them for metabolic regulation, and to create energy inside the cells.
These thyroid hormones regulate the rate at which our bodies burn fats and carbohydrates, and help control the temperature, they influence your heart rate and help regulate protein production.
Can you see now how your thyroid plays an essential role in keeping your energies humming, keeping your weight healthy, and how it looks after your general wellbeing?
Even a small abnormality in your thyroid function can cause the wheels to fall off the cart.
You never know when that could happen.
But it will most likely be at a time when you can least afford it!
So it’s important that you take good care of your thyroid today, now that I have brought it to your attention.
And here is another interesting observation I have made over the years.
A thyroid issue can push you into co-dependency.
Co-dependency basically means that you can’t be happy unless everyone around you is happy.
This usually affects my female clients, whereas with men a thyroid dysfunction can make them withdraw or act uncooperative.
If you can relate to any part of this story, and you have been to the Dr and all your medical tests come back normal, it could still be your thyroid.
Blood tests for thyroid issues are not very sophisticated.
At our facilities, I do a range of very specific tests that will shed a different light on your thyroid (as well as adrenals and other hormone producing glands).
Lindsay had to take very specific supplements that fitted her bill perfectly and she is now walking around with a healthy glow, because she is healed from the inside out.
Lindsay had to boost her mineral levels by eating a lot healthy unprocessed salt.
She also needed to supplement with colloidal iodine and enzymes, and a good probiotic to heal her gut.
All these products are found in the Ultimate Vitality Boost, a package we created after seeing thousands of clients suffer with the same issues.
She had to drastically cut down her carbohydrate intake, and increase her good fats, like coconut oil. (The thyroid loves good fats).
And, last but not least, Lindsay began to supplement with Activator, which is a completely balanced supplement, not only including vitamins and minerals, but also a full range of important amino acids, which had been lacking in her body for so long.
We have seen athletes recover quickly by supplementing with Activator and Lindsay was no different.
