Thyroid Health Program: Part 1

Thyroid Health Program: Part 1
Physiology & Pathology of the Thyroid Gland

Your thyroid gland is located at the seat of the throat chakra, as described in Ayurvedic Science, and is associated with Kidney Yang in Chinese Medicine.  Physiologically, your thyroid gland affects energy production in every cell of your body.  Overactivity as well as underactivity of the thyroid gland can contribute to fatigue, insomnia, and a variety of metabolic problems that cause an array of symptoms.  Emotionally, an underfunctioning thyroid gland can contribute to depression, apathy, and dull emotions; an overfunctioning thyroid gland can contribute to mania, impulsiveness, and nervousness.  Psychospiritually, the thyroid gland is associated with personal power, your unique voice and ability to express yourself, and will to achieve or fulfill your goals.  In order to heal your thyroid gland on a physical, emotional, and/or psychospiritual level, it is important to understand how the thyroid gland works, the nutrition it requires to stay well, the chemicals in our environment that can disrupt thyroid function, and how to pinpoint the cause of an overfunctioning or underfunctioning thyroid.
