Regulating Your Thyroid
I used to take three different thyroid pills to help me get through the day, plus adrenal pills because of severe fatigue. Then Dr. Greg tested me and found I had been misdiagnosed. He put me on the right supplements to handle what my body had been depleted in and for the first time in a long time I slept a full night without interruption, I could feel my body muscles relax and melt into the bed. I now sleep soundly for 8-10 hours every night whereas before I would get about 5-7 hours of broken sleep at best.
Without Dr. Greg finally discovering my underlying condition, I would still be struggling with severe fatigue and taking thyroid pills every 1-2 hours to "keep going" throughout the day. I am now living a happier, more energetic life and feel more alive and "here." My gratitude to Dr. Greg —LG
Back in August 2007 my TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) was at a level of 22.39, well above anything anyone could ever consider close to "normal." I was so tired I could hardly be up for an hour, my hair was falling out, weight gain in excess of 20 pounds. But why was my thyroid not responding when my body was making enough TSH to run ten healthy thyroids?
I chose to stick with Dr. Greg’s nutrition plan and am so glad I did. He worked out exactly what my thyroid needed to restore its health and balance, naturally. As of January 2008 my TSH is down to 2.81. Now I have energy, my hair is growing back, and I’m working on shedding those extra pounds. Nutrition is not a quick fix for our health problems, but it is a permanent one. I encourage all to feed your body with nutrition instead of poisoning it with prescriptions. Be patient, it will work. —HH
Many people understand that their thyroid is important for controlling their energy levels and body weight. But did you know that your thyroid plays a part in nearly every body process? When it is out of balance, so are you.
Although you can find people with thyroids on overdrive, more commonly people have underactive ones—producing too little thyroid hormone.
The classic signs of a sluggish thyroid gland include weight gain, lethargy, poor quality hair and nails, hair loss, dry skin, fatigue, cold hands and feet, and constipation—these symptoms are well known.
But, did you know that depression, heart disease, high cholesterol, fluid retention, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menopausal symptoms, low libido, muscle and joint pains, irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune disease, memory problems, and poor stamina could also arise from a problem with your thyroid?
New studies suggest a very high incidence of borderline and undetected hypothyroidism in the United States. Physicians often miss a thyroid problem since they rely on just one or a few traditional tests, which are commonly misunderstood and misinterpreted.
Most physicians believe that if your TSH value is within the range of "normal," your thyroid is fine. But more and more physicians are discovering that the TSH value is grossly unreliable for diagnosing hypothyroidism.
And the TSH range for "normal" keeps changing! No one TSH value is "normal" for every person, of every age, at every cycle of the day or month. Want to know more? Click here.
The truth is that the same factors contributing to high rates of obesity, cancer and diabetes are wreaking havoc on your thyroid: sugar, processed foods, stress, environmental toxins, and lack of exercise are heavy contributors.
The good news is that there is a solution.
First we correctly assess the health status of your thyroid in relation to any symptoms—then we correct the exact source of thyroid stress.
