Currently, the United States is gripped by an epidemic. Millions of people are profoundly effected, many suffering needlessly for years. The delicate endocrine system is under attack, in large part from the growing pollution of the air, food, and water. The result is an autoimmune response against our fragile endocrine glands and the organ most severely affected appears to be the thyroid.
Why should we be concerned about our endocrine glands?
The endocrine system not only regulates many of our bodies daily functions like growth, digestion, body temperature, and glucose metabolism, but a hormone released by an endocrine gland can travel throughout the body and change the activity of cells from many other systems. So if the endocrine system is unwell it can profoundly affect the entire body.
It is reported that up to 33 million people in the US could be affected by this epidemic. This constitutes an enormous segment of the population of the United States, and is likely to be at least partially responsible for several other more publicized epidemics we are facing according to Drs Richard and Karilee Shames. These include the diabetes epidemic, especially in children; the high cholesterol epidemic in middle-aged men; the epidemic of severe menopause in midlife women; pandemic depression in all ages of our society; and most certainly the proliferation of obesity in Americans .I hear from many people who simply don t feel well, don t have any energy or on the other hand have felt profoundly ill for many years. What all of these conversations have in common is that their doctors say they are fine and the tests they have taken reveal nothing of concern. According to Drs Shames Most people are not aware that their individual problems of fatigue, depression, and overweight might be due to an undiagnosed borderline low thyroid situation.
Furthermore, nagging persistent related problems can include sinusitis, constipation, eczema, insomnia, dry skin, hair thinning, brittle nails, intolerance to heat or cold, and a host of female difficulties such as infertility, recurrent miscarriage, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, and even bad PMS.The solution to these problems can be easier than one might suspect, even when a wide variety of conventional and alternative interventions may have so far proven less than fully effective. One needs to first receive an accurate diagnosis, then engage in a specific and personalized thyroid-boosting program. This can be done with conventional medicine, alternative medicine, or a combination of the two. In his thirty years of practice, Dr Richard Shames says I ve seen thousands of patients derive tremendous benefit on every level from properly treating what was erroneously thought by their other doctors to be a normal thyroid situation." Many of those who have had conventional blood tests, only to be told their symptoms are imaginary, may find a more accurate verdict with a home saliva test. The hormone health group, canaryclub.org, offers these home hormone tests at a discount from two of America s most respected laboratories. We understand they have the lowest price available. The information from these tests often confirms the patients own awareness that there is indeed something wrong. This in turn can lead to effective treatment -- and ultimately a return to wellness. If you are not feeling well, just not up to par, have unwanted pounds, feel depressed for no apparent reason, are having unexpected and seemingly unwarranted male or female issues don t wait and don t settle for an unsatisfactory diagnosis get properly tested then treated. It is easy, inexpensive and can make the world of difference to your life now!
