Used to strengthen the thyroid gland. Thyroid can be under or over-active. Dr. Olarsch reports that thyroid related health problems are at epidemic stage.
Dr. Olarsch stresses that seeing a naturopathic doctor is the best way to accurately determine if the thyroid is the culprit. He finds the following symptoms are common: Tires easily (fatigue, rundown, sleepy), feels cold often, headaches, poor sex drive, depression, can't loose weight, joints ache (often whole body feels achy), dry skin, droopy eyes, and cold hands, feet, nose & buttocks.
Physiology: The thyroid hormones thyroxin (T4) and Tri-iodothyronine (T3), regulate growth and metabolism. Glandular concentrates from healthy glands have been found beneficial for growth, repair and balance of weak or malfunctioning glands because they contain naturally occurring minerals, vitamins, raw enzymes, nucleo-proteins (RNA/DNA sometimes called protomorphogens) and tissue-activating proteins specific to that particular gland. Thyro Complex contains thyroxin-free thyroid concentrate along with raw adrenal, pituitary and spleen concentrates which work synergistically to support the thyroid and normalize its function as part of the delicate endocrine system. Kelp is included as a rich source of organic iodine. Iodine aids in the development and function of the thyroid and is an integral part of thyroxin. Iodine deficiency leads to enlargement of the thyroid gland known as goiter and hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism may afflict as much as 40% of the American population. The ramifications of abnormally low thyroid function extend throughout the body resulting in lowered cellular metabolism with symptoms such as low energy levels, dry hair and skin, constipation, weight gain, goiter, mental dullness, slurred speech and clumsiness. Hands and feet are generally cold and may feel numb or tingly.
Hyperthyroidism is primarily seen in young adult females. One of the early symptoms of this condition is diarrhea. Other symptoms include nervousness, irritability, fatigue, weakness, weight loss, insomnia, fluctuating moods, tremor of the hands, abnormal perspiration, heat intolerance, rapid pulse and neurotic potential. All body processes speed up and nutrients are used up at a greater rate. Dietary intake of all nutrients should be increased until the condition can be normalized.
Indications: Thyro Complex may be used for normalization of either the hypo or hyper functioning thyroid.
