123RF-Healthy-Thyroid-1Low thyroid (also called hypothyroidism) are common problems that affect many Americans. It is estimated that over 30 million Americans suffer from a thyroid disorder. Unfortunately, at least half of all Americans have not been diagnosed.

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck which regulates many bodily functions. Women in their mid-thirties are particularly susceptible to a thyroid disorder.

The thyroid creates thyroid hormone (TH) which controls areas like the metabolism, body’s temperature and heartbeat. When the thyroid becomes under-active, (hypothyroid) it produces too little TH. The cause of thyroid problems can be any number of reasons: stress, environment, autoimmune attack, pregnancy, diet deficiencies, etc.
