Balance Your Thyroid: Your Shield Against Metabolic Diseases

Did you know your thyroid health is important to preventing metabolic diseases?

Let’s talk about it.

Metabolic diseases cause 70% of the deaths in this country and have increased dramatically in the last few decades. 42% of adult Americans over the age of 20 have metabolic syndrome.

People with Metabolic Syndrome have high triglycerides, high blood pressure, low HDL, insulin resistance, or diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is associated with obesity. So how was your thyroid involved? Thyroid hormone controls metabolic activity by stimulating your mitochondria to produce energy.

Studies have shown that when your thyroid hormone is out of balance, you’re much more likely to develop fatty liver disease. That’s because thyroid hormone helps to modulate the metabolism of glucose and lipids in your liver.

If your thyroid is low functioning, you’re hypothyroid can have an increased risk of developing fatty liver.

Fatty liver is one of the hallmarks of metabolic syndrome. So it’s super important that you keep your thyroid functioning normally.

One of the most amazing things that has happened since helping my patients optimize their hypothalamus function is that it’s improved their thyroid function. 

Optimize your hypothalamus function to improve thyroid function.

And those on thyroid hormone can take less thyroid hormone, sometimes even get off their thyroid hormone with proper hypothalamic support. 

Your hypothalamus controls thyroid hormone production by producing thyroid releasing factor, which then can stimulate the pituitary gland to release thyroid stimulating hormone which tells the thyroid to release T4 which gets converted into T3. It’s T3 that interfaces with the cell and gets the mitochondria to produce more energy.

This communication network is incredibly sensitive.

If the hypothalamus is dysfunctional and not sensitive to thyroid hormone then it will not stimulate the pituitary to produce enough TSH to get the thyroid to make adequate thyroid hormone. 

Many of my patients present with blood work indicating imbalanced TSH, T4, and T3 levels. Normally TSH is high when thyroid hormones T4 and T3 are low or vice versa. TSH is low if T3 and T4 are high. When they’re all low or all high, that’s miscommunication in the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis.

Supporting your hypothalamus with Genesis Gold® helps to improve hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid communication as well as improve thyroid function which helps to reduce the risk of metabolic disorder.

    Hello Deborah, I stumbled upon this and am wondering if this would help balance my wife with Hashimotos condition. I know you mentioned Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, but no one in the USA wants to treat the root cause which is Hashimotos.
