Understanding Your Thyroid Gland

Your thyroid gland is located at the base of your throat, and among its functions includes regulating your metabolic rate. It consists of two lobes and surrounds your "Adam's apple". It secretes hormones that affect our weight and determine whether we are hot or cold.

It also directly affects our organs such as the heart. When there is an imbalance of how much thyroid hormone is produced, we can either fall in one of two ways: overproduction or underproduction. Thyroid stimulating hormone is responsible for coordinating these hormones.

Hypothyroidism is second only to diabetes mellitus as the most common endocrine disorder in the United States, and its prevalence may be as high as 18 cases per 1,000 persons in the general population. The disorder becomes increasingly common with advancing age, affecting about 2 to 3 percent of older women. Because hypothyroidism is so common, family physicians need to know how to diagnose the disorder and select appropriate thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
What is Hypothyroidism?

Hyperthyroidism: Overproduction
Hyperthyroidism is the result of an overactive thyroid gland, and symptoms include a fast and irregular heart rate, nervousness, anxiety, weight loss, and a fine tremor. President George Bush and his wife Barbara (and even their dog!) were diagnosed with this condition, the common cause of which is known as Graves disease.

Graves' disease occurs because the immune system is somehow altered into stimulating the production of more thyroid hormones. If not controlled, a condition known as exophthalmoses may develop (Thyroid Eye Disease). This is when the eyes seem to bulge out from their sockets.

Treatment can include radioactive iodine, which suppresses the thyroid gland. Medications that can slow the heart rate may also be used. Finally, surgery to remove part of the dysfunctional thyroid gland can also have a successful result.

Scientific researchers are constantly searching for better, safer, and more effective methods of hormone replacement which, along with concerned consumers, encourages the pharmaceutical industry to develop lower dose, natural, bio-identical replacement hormone preparations. Currently, dozens of different brands, delivery systems and dosages are available to choose from. However, because women have such a variety of hormone products at hand, it can be challenging to sort through them all. The similarities and the differences between many of the natural and synthetic hormone preparations.

Imperial Gold Maca adapts to the body's needs and supports hormonal imbalances. It works through the hypothalamus and pituitary to bring about healthy, balanced hormone levels in the body. Black Cohosh, licorice root, don quai and soy products all contain weak plant hormones, (phytoestrogens).  Many women cannot manage their symptoms with these herbs effectively. Yet women feel the effect of Imperial Gold Maca usually within several days to several weeks. The key to effective results is consistent use on a daily basis without missing days.
Imperial Gold Maca
is not a hormone but a staple food herb that feeds the entire endocrine system and can be eaten as often as you would eat  any nutritious vegetable like  broccoli. Imperial Gold Maca allows a men and woman to produce their own hormones naturally .

Hypothyroidism: Underproduction
Hypothyroidism (caused by a under producing thyroid gland) is generally more common than hyperthyroidism, especially in middle-aged women. Hashimoto's disease is the most common form of primary hypothyroidism, with symptoms including lethargy, cold intolerance, fatigue, and hair loss. Viral and bacterial infections can also affect the thyroid gland, but usually temporarily.

People can also get nodules in their thyroid, which are mostly benign, although a physician will need to make sure that it's not cancer, usually by performing a thyroid scan or biopsy. A family history of thyroid cancer or previous neck irradiation will also increase your risk of hypothyroidism. Although generally benign, over time, hypothyroidism, if left untreated can develop into a condition called myxedema, which can result in fatigue, and eventual coma.

If you have hypothyroidism you most likely have a hormonal imbalance, and likely, your doctor may start you on synthetic thyroid hormone pills that you may need to continue for the rest of your life. Periodic blood work will be done to make sure the thyroid is functioning properly. Imperial Gold Maca is different and keeps nourishing the body as a whole and allows the body to rid unwanted conditions naturally and safely through its adaptogenic qualities.

Nationally and internationally recognized clinicians and researchers combine the latest understanding of thyroid physiology and pathophysiology with the most up-to-date clinical knowledge to help clinical endocrinologists and primary care physicians understand and treat a wide variety of thyroid disorders from birth to old age. Topics range from neonatal thyroid screening, thyroid dysfunction during infancy and childhood, peripartum thyroid disorders, and thyroid disease in the elderly to the pathogenesis and treatment of nodular goiter, thyroid cancer, thyrotoxicosis, and hypothyroidism. There are many websites that give lots of information about this condition, but if you take advantage of the latest clinical thinking and of the newest findings of the molecular biology of thyroid hormone action at this link below, you should be well equipped with the correct information particular if your interested in medical viewpoints that are not necessarily natural or herbal.
