Are you waking up tired? Constantly drained? Lack mental clarity? Having emotions associated with depression or irritability? Cold sensitivity? Suffer from hair loss? Cant lose the weight? Have dry, scaly skin? Suffer from frequent headaches? Get recurrent infections? If so, it’s time to look into your thyroid.
The thyroid gland sits at the front of the neck like a butterfly just below the larynx. The thyroid gland releases hormones into the bloodstream to control your metabolism, which why it is often called the “metabolism gland” and is also the primary way your body uses energy.
The thyroid gland’s main function is the production and secretion of a group of critical hormones. When working properly, the growth rate and metabolism of the body’s cells controls and regulates how the body produces and releases energy from foods.
Whether or not a thyroid gland is overactive or not producing enough hormones, some disorders can stem from this. Common thyroid diseases include:
Nourishing the gland before these disruptions occur and/or helping the thyroid rebalance itself naturally is very attainable.
A great first step is to eliminate endocrine disruptors from your lifestyle. Many include:
Bisphenol A (BPA) — used to make polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins, which are found in many plastic products including food storage containers
Dioxins — produced as a byproduct in herbicide production and paper bleaching, they are also released into the environment during waste burning and wildfires
Perchlorate — a by-product of aerospace, weapon, and pharmaceutical industries found in drinking water and fireworks
Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) — used widely in industrial applications, such as firefighting foams and non-stick pan, paper, and textile coatings
Phthalates — used to make plastics more flexible, they are also found in some food packaging, cosmetics, children’s toys, and medical devices
Phytoestrogens — naturally occurring substances in plants that have hormone-like activity, such as genistein and daidzein that are in soy products, like tofu or soy milk
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) — used to make flame retardants for household products such as furniture foam and carpets
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) — used to make electrical equipment like transformers, and in hydraulic fluids, heat transfer fluids, lubricants, and plasticizers
Triclosan — may be found in some anti-microbial and personal care products, like liquid body wash
Balancing your body’s pH is critical. If your body’s pH is out of range, minerals like iodine, selenium, zinc, and copper will not be absorbed even with supplementation. This can be a hinderance when it comes to supplementation.
I work closely with clients to help balance their pH levels. This is fundamentally important when it comes to supplementation therapies. You can buy pH testing strips right off Amazon. I recommend this brand.
Testing your urine and saliva TWO hours AFTER eating (fast the two hours) will give you a best reading of how slow/fast your digestion is running. Again, working with a practitioner is a great way to learn how to balance this.
The next step is to start nourishing the gland with the nutrients required for its function. I recommend the supplement: Thyro Complete.
Thyro Complete is a dietary supplement to support healthy thyroid function and physiology.

A thyroid glandular formulation that blends hypothalamus, pituitary and thyroxine-free thyroid glandular tissue with the most clinically significant nutrients and branded, clinically supported extracts of ashwagandha and forskohlli for optimal thyroid health.
Glandular tissue, when applied to support a specific organ, can provide balance for multiple factors, including nucleic acids and organ-specific enzymes, which help promote the growth and maintenance of organs and glands.
This formula contains glandular tissue that relates directly to the thyroid and higher level glands which dictate the function and activity of the thyroid gland, including the pituitary and hypothalamus.
Iodine (ThorvinTM) is a deep water exclusive Icelandic kelp, Thorvin’s Laminaria digitata is higher in total nutrients, particularly iodine, potassium, and specific amino acids. A highly bioavailable form, Thorvin’s Asco Iodine content averages 780 parts per million (ppm), the highest on the market.
Zinc (TRACCSTM) is essential for the conversion of T4 to T3 and also lends itself to the integrity and functionality of the T3 receptor itself.
Selenium (AlbionTM) is required for thyroid hormone production, activation and metabolism. It is an essential component of deiodinase enzymes which convert T4 to T3.
Copper (TRACCSTM) plays an important role in the production of thyroid hormone and also acts as an antagonist to Zinc, helping to promote a balanced mineral profile.
L-Tyrosine is a building block for the production of thyroid hormone. Thyroxine is a tyrosine-based hormone, which is also comprised of iodine.
SensorilAshwagandha: Recent studies have indicated that in addition to the support provided by Sensoril® for healthy cortisol levels (which will in turn support a healthy level of T3 hormone) it may also support T4 production directly. (1)
Coleus Forskohlii (ForsLeanBrand) Extract: Supports
thyroid function directly and also supports lean body mass
through ergogenic activity. It stimulates AMP (adenosine monophosphate), which then stimulates metabolism for greater fat burning.
Stop masking symptoms and start taking the steps to HEAL your body. I help individuals all over the country regain their health.
