The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck, just above your collarbone. It is one of your endocrine glands, which make hormones. Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in your body. These
include how fast you burn calories and how fast your heartbeats. All of these activities are your body's metabolism. Thyroid hormones are two hormones produced and released by the thyroid gland, namely triiodothyronine (T 3 ) and thyroxine (T 4 ). They are tyrosine-based hormones that are primarily responsible for the regulation of metabolism.
What is thyroidism?
Thyroid problems include
Hypothyroidism - when your thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormones
Hyperthyroidism - when your thyroid gland makes more thyroid hormones than your body needs
Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which an overactive thyroid gland is producing an excessive amount of thyroid hormones that circulate in the blood. ("Hyper" means "over" in Greek). Thyroid hormones include thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). T3 is actually the most active thyroid hormone. Much of the T4 is converted to T3 in the bloodstream.
- Functioning adenoma and toxic multinodular goiter (TMNG)
- Excessive intake of thyroid hormones Abnormal secretion of TSH
- Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland)
- Excessive iodine intake
- Graves disease
Common symptoms of hyperthyroidism include
- weight loss despite an increased appetite,
- rapid heart rate,
- intolerance to heat, and
- frequent bowel movements.
Hypothyroidism occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones
- Autoimmune disease
- Over-response to hyperthyroidism treatment
- Thyroid surgery
- Congenital disease.
- Pituitary disorder pregnancy.
- Iodine deficiency.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism
- Increased sensitivity to cold
- Dry skin
- Weight gain
- Puffy face
- Muscle weakness
- Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness
- Heavier than normal or irregular menstrual periods
- Thinning hair
- Slowed heart rate
The conflict linked to the right lobe of the thyroid relates to an “ingoing morsel” and to “not being fast enough to catch a morsel”. Such a “morsel” concerns, for example, a job, a position, a promotion, a contract, a business, or a purchase one strongly desires but is too slow to “grab”. The expected “morsel” could also relate to a person one is too slow to “catch” or “get a hold of”.
The conflict linked to the left lobe of the thyroid relates to an “outgoing morsel” and to “not being fast enough to eliminate a morsel” (originally, the feces morsel). This could be a term paper, any kind of goods, foul stocks or a person (tenant, employee, business partner) one was too slow to “get rid of”. An apology or a proposal that was expressed too late can also evoke this type of “morsel” conflict.
The biological purpose of the cell increase is to improve the secretion of thyroxine so that the individual becomes faster to catch the desired morsel (right half of the thyroid) or to get rid of an undesired morsel (left half of the thyroid). This causes an overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism. Because of the enhanced thyroxine production, persons with an overactive thyroid are often overexcited, nervous, irritable, and have trouble sleeping.
People who are driven to “get things done”, who have professions and activities that involve competition (business managers, sales agents, vendors, athletes and sports competitors), who are under deadline pressure (journalists, manufacturers) or constant pressure to “keep up” (working two jobs, single mothers) are more susceptible to experience the conflict. Children and adolescents suffer thyroid-conflicts when they are pushed by a parent, teacher, or coach (“You are too slow!”).
Constitutional medicine is given to the patient suffering which helps to improve the function of thyroid gland naturally. Homeopathy remedy helps the body to stimulate the thyroid gland to overcome deficiency or excess on its own. Eventually, it also reduces dependency on artificial hormonal supply.
