Thyroid Gland – Helps in the function of the thyroid gland
The thyroid gland surrounds the windpipe at the base of the neck. It produces a number of hormones, primarily thyroxine, that accelerate the basal metabolic rate and thus directly influence circulation, respiration, and tissue growth and repair. Thyroxine is also essential to sexuality in women, providing a glandular link between the brain and the organs of reproduction. The other principal thyroid hormone is calcitonin, which inhibits the release of calcium from bone and plays a central role in maintaining both calcium balance and strong bones.
Hyperthyroidism, the name given to over-production of thyroxine, causes extreme nervousness and irritability, increased heart rate and blood pressure, weight loss, muscle weakness / tremors, infrequent, scant menstrual periods, sleep disturbances, enlarged thyroid gland, vision problems or eye irritation, and heat sensitivity . Underproduction of thyroxine, or hypothyroidism, results in dry skin, fatigue, frequent, heavy menstrual periods, forgetfulness, weight gain, brittle nails, dry, course skin and hair, and intolerance to cold. Goiter, which is actually an enlarged thyroid, is a sign of thyroid insufficiency.
In infants, hypothyroidism can be devastating, inhibiting physical development and causing irreversible mental retardation. Thyroid gland can be particularly important for women. In normal pregnancy, the thyroid gland hyper secretes. If this fails to happen, the pregnant woman’s teeth may decay, and her skin and nails deteriorate. Raw glandular thyroid is a prudent preventive against these problems. Thyroid hypo activity causes the hot flashes and irritability that affect many women during menopause. Thyroid tissue helps restore the gland to proper function and is helpful for relieving many of the symptoms.
