In this video, we’re going to talk all about the thyroid. There are two primary types of thyroid issues—hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. “Hypo” means that your thyroid is not producing enough hormones. “Hyper” means that your thyroid is producing too many hormones. Hypothyroidism is related to Hashimoto’s disease about 90% of the time. Hyperthyroidism is related to Graves’ disease about 80% of the time. Hypothyroidism occurs 8x more in women. Hyperthyroidism is 8.5x more likely in women between 40 and 60 years of age. Women who have recently given birth are at a higher risk of developing Hashimoto’s or hypothyroidism. The risk of developing Graves’ disease is also 7x more likely after giving birth. This suggests that estrogen is involved. Estrogen blocks the conversion of T4 to T3 (these are vital thyroid hormones). When testing T3 and T4 levels, it’s best to do what’s called a free T4/T3 test—this is far more accurate than other tests. TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) is actually a pituitary hormone. Normal levels of this hormone are between 0.45 and 2.5. However, some consider levels between 0.4 and 5.0 to be normal. T4 is the inactive thyroid hormone, and T3 is the active form. The conversion must take place to use this hormone. Some thyroid hormone replacements are the inactive form—which isn’t helpful unless your body can do the conversion. These are the best remedies for hypothyroid issues: • Selenium • Zinc • Vitamin D • Sea kelp • Bile salts These are the best remedies for hyperthyroid issues: • Vitamin D • Vitamin B1 Dr. Eric Berg DC Bio: Dr. Berg, age 56, is a chiropractor who specializes in Healthy Ketosis & Intermittent Fasting.
