The Thyroid Gland

Hey guys, Doctor Christopher Hood, we are in nutritional month. We already went over the general overview, we talked about brain body connection, and we also talked about the gallbladder. Today we’re going to talk about the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is overlooked in both men and women, most people are concerned about it only because it affects the gaining of weight, but the thyroid gland, the pituitary gland and the brain together actually control a lot of metabolic function which is important for health. The reason I bring it up because what happens is the thyroid gland in the neck, if you’re a person that deals with thyroid issuers, what we usually see is that your diet isn’t rich in something called Iodine. Now, Iodine is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones T3 and T4. So, what we’ll see in the production, is if you lack Iodine in your diet, your body doesn’t have what it needs to healthy thyroid hormones. Now people think “well I’m eating Iodized salt” Also known as table salt. You can’t extract it there. Its more used as a preservative. You actually need to take an iodine supplement or you should be eating it in food. If you’re a sushi fan, seaweed paper as a lot of Iodine in it, kelp has iodine in it, beats of Iodine in it, cabbage has Iodine in it. So, there’s different thing you can eat that have Iodine in there. We want that in your diet almost everyday. If you’re just not a fan of any of those things, you can take a supplement called Prolamine Iodine. Prolamine Iodine is a protein Iodine so even with an Iodine allergy you should be fine, but always check with your doctor first. But I just wanted to give you some tad bits on what you can do. If you don’t have it in your body constantly, your body can’t make the hormones. Another tip, if you’re getting choline from the shower through your skin, or in the tap water that you’re drinking it will out compete for Iodine. So, even if you’re taking Iodine and you’re experiencing high levels of choline you want be able to utilize it. Lastly as a chiropractor one big problem is where everyone is developing rounded shoulders and a forward head poster, from everyone being on their phones or working on the computer all day. Understand the thyroid gland in right in your neck, so when your neck started to travel forward, it will actually put compressive force against the nerves that are sending the signal from the brain to the thyroid so the thyroid works properly. So, what we do as chiropractors is that we make sure we get your spine to a normal alignment in your neck. So, the brain and thyroid can communicate properly. If you haven’t been to the  chiropractor and you’re having thyroid issues, please, seek out a chiropractor, go take a look, so your body works the way it’s supposed to work.

I hope you enjoyed, I’m doctor Christopher hood. You have an amazing month, and I’ll talk to you again soon.
