Besides controlling metabolism, the thyroid gland plays a vital role in the functioning of the brain, maintaining the strength of the skeletal system and regulating the body’s temperature. It’s proper functioning is essential for a healthy pregnancy as the hormones it secretes regulate the growth and development of a baby.
Most people experiencing thyroid issues struggle with an under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism). Certain individuals however experience over-activity of the thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
As nearly every imbalance in the body, the disorder of the thyroid gland can be healed naturally. Below are two simple steps that constitute its healing.
The answer to all thyroid issues is organic iodine, the mineral of which the gland is mainly composed of. The type of iodine the thyroid gland requires is that made by nature, not the type synthesised by man in a laboratory. Inorganic iodine can be very toxic to our body. Seaweeds such as seamoss/irish moss, bladderwreck, chlorella, blue-green alge and dulse as well as land herbs such as black walnut hull, chickweed, and white oak bark will greatly nourish your thyroid gland with natural bioavailable iodine, which in turn will normalize, regulate, and balance the function of the thyroid gland. This will bring back proper metabolism and allow your body to normalize its weight.
The Throat Chakra or 5th Chakra (also known as Visuddha in Sanskrit) is the energy center that governs the thyroid gland. Any disturbance of energy flow in that chakra will negatively impact the gland’s function. Because the throat chakra deals with communication and self-expression, any imbalance in those areas of your life will throw the thyroid function out of balance. The solution is to, of course, express yourself fully. Whether it is an artistic expression of dancing, painting, and singing, or simply speaking our truth and freely communicating our needs and desires, it will powerfully impact the thyroid function and bring about healing.
Because we are physical and spiritual beings, every health ailment should be approached in a holistic manner focusing on the physical and energy body at the same time.
