Low Thyroid Levels And Real Food Vitamins
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Low thyroid levels where the needed hormones to keep our body balanced and functioning well, can affect us in drastic ways. Real food derived vitamins can help. Before you get to the point where your doctor advises drug therapy, you might want to try some easy to get and healthy remedies, which will benefit other body systems as well.

Low Thyroid Hormone Symptoms

Symptoms of low thyroid levels are various, and some will be more prominent for some people than others. These symptoms can be mistaken for depression, anxiety, and general nutritional deficiency. Typical symptoms are:

  • dry skin, hair and nails
  • hair loss
  • easy weight gain
  • fatigue
  • depression
  • loss of interest in intimacy
  • sore muscles and joints
  • constant infections

These are merely a few, and it is easy to understand that these conditions can be understood as an isolated situation, as opposed to an endocrine deficiency. Especially if your thyroid hormone blood test comes back as “low normal”. A medical doctor is not going to treat this, as their approach is to prescribe a lab made thyroid hormone, which you'd have to take for the rest of your life. Your hormone levels would have to be a marked low for this prescription.

And yet, some medical doctors who specialize in the treatment of the thyroid do not recommend drugs at all for recovering thyroid levels. They recommend iodine therapy and other nutrients that assist the thyroid gland in producing the hormones it needs.

The Thyroid Gland And Your Immune System

The thyroid gland is part of your immune system. If it is not functioning up to par, then it follows that your immune system will be struggling. This chronic activity will tire you out. Your zest for life in general can be compromised. This is one reason why you may sound depressed when you described your feelings. Anxiety and insecurities may manifest, as you no longer have the assertive energy you need to meet life's challenges.

How You Can Solve This Problem With Real Food Vitamins

Real food vitamins are whole food supplements that are made from foods, rather than chemically imitated in a lab. In most cases, they are assembled with care, and the labels should reflect that they do NOT contain unnecessary ingredients or fillers. The top brands will also exclude common allergens from their products since many people with less able immune systems want to avoid the following:

  • wheat
  • gluten
  • soy
  • corn
  • yeast
  • sugar
  • artificial sweeteners
  • food colorings
  • MSG
  • waxes

What Does The Thyroid Need To Get Going?

Iodine is crucial to the thyroid gland. Especially if radiation levels are up, you would want your thyroid to be well stocked with this mineral, because if it is not, it will quickly absorb the prevelent radioactive iodine.

But, even if this happens, the radioactivity will dissipate and you can still stock up on healthy iodine for your thyroid receptors.

Selenium is another essential mineral that supports the manufacture of thyroid hormones. Similar to many other minerals, selenium levels in the soil of the agri-business nations has been depleted by the use of chemical fertilizers and lack of field rotation. The foods that we would normally get our mineral from do not have the supply that we need.

An Easy Solution To This Problem

A real food vitamin combination for thyroid support is inexpensive and easy to order on line. I always look for a vitamin that is designed by a medical doctor who reveals a true understanding of body chemistry and nutrition. I make sure the product is at least eighty per cent free of the contaminants mentioned above, and I always try a product for at least three months.

(The body needs time to improve with a new nutrient routine, so it is a waste of money to buy something then decide a week later that it is not working. )

I hope this has helped you understand low thyroid levels and real food vitamins. To your health!
