Thyroid Health Thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland in front of the neck that makes hormones that control the way your body’s use of energy. The thyroid gland is regulated by the pituitary gland, which releases a hormone called TSH(thyroid stimulating hormone). This TSH stimulates the production of T4 and T3 hormones. T3 drives our metabolic functions. Pituitary glandTSHThyroid GlandT4T3
Signs & Symptoms: Thyroid Imbalance Common Signs: Fatigue, sleeping more than usual Brittle hair & nails, hair loss, thinning eyebrows Unusual weight gain or difficulty loosing weight Constipation Diminished libido Difficulty tolerating cold, low body temperature Forgetful, fuzzy-minded, mood swings Muscle aches, numbness/tingling in hands.
Metabolism: Thyroid & Weight Gain Reduced thyroid function thyroid’s ability to produce or use this hormone. This results in slowed metabolism. Women are especially prone to thyroid issues /weight gain because the thyroid is linked to our neurotransmitters, reproductive hormones, and adrenal glands
Common Iodine Deficiency Iodine deficiency is a huge health problem a) 96% of patients tested at David Brownstein’s, MD office (West Bloomfield, MI) show signs of moderate to severe iodine deficiency. b) World Health Organization (WHO) says 72% of the world’s population is affected by an iodine deficiency disorder. c) Our diets are lacking sufficient amounts of iodine and levels have fallen by approximately 50% over the last 30 years. d) Iodine deficiency has been linked to Goiters, Hashimoto and Grave’s disease, hypothyroidism, fibroids in the breast, uterine or ovaries, breast and prostate cancer, mental retardation, autoimmune disorders and so much more.
Iodine: Powerful Detoxifying Effect Exposure to toxic substances can be the underlying cause of thyroid disorders, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, breast & prostate cancer and other health issues. • Toxic Halogen Exposure • bromides from carbonated drinks, medications, and bakery products; • fluorides from tap water, toothpaste, medications • chlorides from artificial sweeteners, swimming pools, and detergents • perchlorate from farming practices, medications and jet fuel production If you are iodine deficient, and add iodine, you detoxify all these toxins. Iodine eliminates these substances as well as mercury and other heavy metals from the body.
Laboratory Testing for Iodine Levels This test is recommended before iodine intake. Once the iodine deficiency is determined, iodine supplementation can be started. Kit: Collect a 24-hour Urine Iodine Loading Test 1. First morning urine is discarded 2. Take 50mg of Iodoral R (iodine/iodide) with a glass of water 3. Collect 24-hour urine. Include the first morning sample at the end of the 24-hour collection. 4. Send the sample to the 24-hour urine for evaluation of iodine status to Hakala Labs. Research has shown that 90% excretion (45mg iodine) of a 50mg iodine loading test indicates iodine sufficient state. Below 90% =deficiency state.
Iodine Dosage Guidelines Iodoral 12.5 mg (5mg iodine / 7.5 mg iodide): 1-4 tablets daily based on test results. Selenium 250 mcg every other day, to prevent thyroid storm or side effects. YOU MAY NEED TO ADD EXTRA VITAMIN SUPPORT Super B – B vitamins are particularly important during times of stress. Also vitamin B6 & B12 Reduces attack on thyroid gland by immune system--Bombay Health Journal Super C to support detoxification Possible Side Effects of Iodoral Metallic taste, increased salivation, sneezing, headache, acne, feeling overstressed, burnout, depression, eye strain, and rapid heart rate. Overall, the benefits outweigh the minimal side effects. Dosage can be adjusted, based on your thyroid test levels to eliminate side effects long term. Consult with your healthcare provider.

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) The causes of PMS are not clear, but several factors may be involved. Changes in hormones during the menstrual cycle seem to be an important cause. These changing hormone levels may affect some women more than others. Nutritional behavior has an impact Chemical changes in the brain may also be involved. Stress and emotional problems, such as depression, do not seem to cause PMS, but they may make it worse.
PMS Symptoms Symptoms vary from woman to woman Acne Swollen or tender breasts Feeling tired Trouble sleeping Upset stomach, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea Headache or backache Appetite changes or food cravings Joint or muscle pain Trouble with concentration or memory Tension, irritability, mood swings, or crying spells; anxiety or depression

Candida: Yeast Challenges Most yeast infections are caused by a type of yeast called Candida albicans. A healthy vagina has many bacteria and a small number of yeast cells. The most common bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus, help keep other organisms-like the yeast-under control. When something happens to change the balance of these organisms, yeast can grow too much and cause symptoms: Taking antibiotics sometimes causes this imbalance. High estrogen levels caused by pregnancy or hormone therapy, can also cause it. Certain health problems, like diabetes or HIV infection. ---WebMD

Important of Co-Q10 How does it work?• Each cell in the body needs a source of energy to survive, so cells break down sugars, fats, and amino acids to make energy. Small enclosures within cells that make this energy are called mitochondria. CoQ10 exists naturally in our mitochondria and carries electrons involved in energy metabolism. • CoQ10 is essential in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the basic energy molecule of each cell.• In the bloodstream, CoQ10 is mainly transported by lipoproteins such as LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein). It is thought that CoQ10 is one of the first antioxidants to be depleted when LDL is subjected to oxidation. • Because of this, CoQ-10 an important nutrient that prevents the oxidation of lipoproteins, and potentially reducing the risk of arteries from forming plaques and getting damaged. In healthy individuals, it is found in high concentrations in the heart, kidneys, and liver.
Benefits of Co-Q10 What can it help with? High blood pressure (Hypertension)Preliminary research suggests that CoQ-10 causes small decreases in blood pressure (primarily systolic, the top number). Low blood levels of CoQ-10 have been found in people with hypertension, although it is not clear yet if CoQ-10 "deficiency" is a cause of high blood pressure. Age-related Macular DegenerationEarly studies suggest that acetyl-L-carnitine, omega-3 fatty acids, and CoQ-10 may help age-related macular degeneration. Alzheimer's DiseaseEarly studies on this process suggest that CoQ-10 supplements may slow down, but not cure, dementia in people plagued by this disease. More studies are sure to come. Reversing muscle damage from cholesterol lowering drugsIndividuals on statin type drugs such as Lipitor and others, may want to supplement with CoQ-10 as these statins decrease blood CoQ-10 levels, by interfering with the synthesis of CoQ-10 in the body. Scientists strongly suspect CoQ-10 deficiency may partially or fully contribute to development of muscle damage in people on statin type cholesterol lowering drugs.
Importance of Omega 3 Fatty Acids Research shows strong evidence that the omega 3 EPA and DHA can boost heart health and lower triglycerides. Thought to play an important role in reducing inflammation throughout the body-in the blood vessels, the joints and elsewhere Study show a correlation between the consumption of Omega 3 and reduced stiffness in the joints The evidence is preliminary, but some research suggests that omega-3s may help protect against Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Recent studies have also evaluated whether the omega-3 supplement DHA can slow the decline seen in those with Alzheimer's dementia or in age-associated memory impairment.
