The Thyroid gland is one of the most sensitive organs in the body. It is responsible in keeping every cell burning at 98.6 degrees. It is the thermostat regulator of the body.

The Thyroid vs. Adrenals Diagnosis


Most thyroid conditions are diagnosed from hormone blood tests (TSH, T3, T4, etc). What many people don’t understand and your doctor is not trained to explain, is that if the adrenal glands are not working properly, your thyroid cannot convert T3 to T4 and you show up as a thyroid case, when actually the problems is adrenal stress or exhaustion. To test the adrenals a blood cortisol test can be ordered, or a much less expensive way is the Ross Health and Stress test. Once the adrenals get stronger with the natural herbal kidney cleanse called Renocom, so the thyroid and adrenals will start working, and all your symptoms will go away. Yea! Follow the other cleanses listed in under Miracles.

The THYROID & the Iodine Skin Test

There is a strong link between the thyroid and the adrenals. One is usually weak first and then weakens the other. Some people diagnosed with low thyroid do not respond to any thyroid medications because of weak adrenals. The health practitioner must the adrenals not just the thyroid for a complete BodyBestTM analysis.

Classic symptoms of low thyroid include: cold hands and feet, constipation, dry skin, psoriasis, ring of the ears, depression, menstrual problems, weight gain, headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision, arthritis, hair loss, irritability, poor memory or concentration, low sex drive, constipation, heat and/or cold intolerance (adrenal fatigue can do this too), acne, carpal tunnel syndrome, panic attacks and other complaints. Further research shows thyroid hormone levels can also cause depression, anxiety and even more serious “mental” illness.

Some of these complaints overlap with stressed adrenals. Low thyroid or low adrenals can cause the other or a person may have both conditions. It is difficult to know via symptoms alone whether adrenal, thyroid, or both organs are not functioning properly.

What's Your Problem?


The quickest and simplest way to check your thyroid is the "Barnes Test." With a digital thermometer you take your axillary (arm pit) temperature upon awakening before you get up. The test we do is taking the temperature five times and taking an average of the temperatures, which should be 98.2 or higher. Forms and thermometers are available at Ross Wellness Center.

The standard testing procedure is a complete "thyroid blood test” which includes the following:

T3 (triiodothyronine), T4 (thyroxine), TSH, Reverse T3, and anti-thyroid antibodies.

TSH is the thyroid stimulating hormone from your pituitary. Your thyroid produces T4, which must be converted into T3 to get into your cells to turn your energy. Ts is the most potent and active form of your thyroid hormone—four times more active at the cellular level than T4. Sometimes T4 is, however, converted into Reverse T3, instead of T3. This can lead to fatigue and many other complaints. Likewise the body may be making antibodies to thyroid hormones. The problem with all these blood tests is that they do not tell you what is really happening inside your cells, especially inside the liver, kidneys, and brain. You must continue to find solutions to your health problem.

What if you take medications and don’t feel better?


or

Your tests are normal yet you don’t “FEEL” normal?


What then?


Understand, one of the key problems is 80% of T3 is made, not in the thyroid gland, but in other cells of the body, and is therefore not detectable with standard blood tests. Unfortunately this means that current blood testing for “thyroid or thyroid metabolism” is approximately 80% unreliable! It also means that most people with thyroid hormone metabolism deficiency may not be getting the treatment they deserve to have in order to have a happy healthy life.

Note mercury or fluoride can replace the iodine in thyroid hormone. We do not recommend that you do not use fluoride products, such as toothpaste, do not drink fluoridated water or do not receive fluoride dental treatments if you have thyroid problems. Your thyroid cannot work with these minerals taken into your body.

We have found that stomach problems like a hiatal hernia, acid reflex, and GIRD are a vagus nerve disorder that can cause thyroid problems as well, which can be corrected with the BodyBestTM technique.

FOODS


Certain foods have a strong anti-thyroid effect in susceptible people. These foods include soy, cabbage, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, mustard greens, turnips, kale, spinach, peaches and pears, wheat (gluten), and any allergy.

Sulfa drugs and antihistamines can worsen any Thyroid condition.

Various nutrients are needed for proper thyroid functioning. This includes iodine, the amino acid tyrosine (which is now also available in the active, coenzyme form, N-acetyl-L-tyrosine), potassium, selenium, zinc, manganese, B-complex, essential fatty acids, and Vitamin A. The symptom survey and assist in nutritional imbalances.

Everyone knows that if you are anemic, you probably need more iron. Also if your thyroid needs iodine to make the thyroid hormone, thyroxin.

You do have the opportunity to be well.

Adrenal Stress Test


Everyone with low energy, over weight, a Thyroid condition or other health problems should do the Iodine Skin Test and Adrenal Stress test. This will end the vicious cycle of chronic health problems, often caused by stressed adrenal glands and/or thyroid gland problems. Correcting these very important endocrine glands will assist many people with pain and fatigue and return you to a happy, healthy life.
