Why So Many Thyroid Problems ?

Have you noticed recently how many of your friends and family have been diagnosed by a health care practitioner (usually a medical doctor) as being Thyroid deficient or unbalanced. It seems that recently everyone has thyroid imbalance for one reason or another. Is this really possible or is it just the diagnosis "du jour" as it were. A good question that I will try to answer below:

First I do believe that we are seeing an increasing level of thyroid toxicity that will not be fixed by simply prescribing the current pharmaceuticals that are recommended in the treatment of thyroid condition and taking them for the rest of a lifetime. Below I will highlight what I feel are the causes and then follow with solutions.

1. Increased toxicity in our environment. This comes from endogenous and exogenous sources. Endogenous issues would include things like breakdown products from cellular metabolism, catabolism and digestion. Exogenous issues would include things like pesticides, environmental toxins and contaminants, cleaning and antimicrobial products, hormones used in food production etc

2. Increased stress on our body system. These stresses come in three main types. Emotional/mental, nutritional/chemical and structural

3. Increased use of medications and pharmaceutical rememdies which unbalance the thyroid/hormone system even further.

To be continued ... Have not finished yet
