Balancing Thyroid Function

 

The thyroid gland has an important role to play in the regulation of body metabolism. The two main thyroid hormones ensure that appropriate metabolic rate of body biochemical activity is maintained.

Over Active Thyroid

When the gland is producing too much of these hormones, the body will burn up food much faster than normal and appetite will increase, but weight will be lost.

A useful mixture would be:

2 parts Bugleweed

1 part Nettles

1 part Valerian

1 part yarrow

 

This should be drunk three times a day over a period of time.

 

Under-active Thyroid

In this condition the opposite is occurring. The body’s basic rate of activity lowers, weight is put on, lethargy and apathy are common, and there is a tendency to deep depression. An appropriate mixture would be:

2 parts Bladderwrack

1 part Damiana (or Kola)

1 part Nettles

1 part Oats

1 part Wormwood

This should be drunk three times a day.
