The thyroid is a vital gland with impacts on every system of the body. Dr. Paul Eck, a brilliant biochemist who was a pioneer in mineral balancing, referred to thyroid hormones as the spark plugs of the body. This is because they ignite the “fuel” in the mitochondria of every cell, providing biochemical energy for the body to perform all of it’s functions. An imbalance in the thyroid therefore affects every area of the body, including digestion, metabolism, cardiovascular functioning, sleep & sexual functioning, and mental health.
The thyroid gland is associated with the fifth energy center, often called the throat center, which is located in the middle of the neck near the Adam’s apple. The throat center has to do with expression in the world, creativity, and the ability to display one’s abilities and talents. We can relate this to energy levels being a key factor to being expressive and creative, as thyroid hormones contribute to “sparks” of inspiration and help provide the cellular energy needed to be in creative flow. Try composing a beautiful song, writing a book, producing a brilliant business idea, or playing an inspired game of a sport when you’re exhausted due to an under-performing thyroid. On the other hand, blocked expression in the world, perhaps due to traumas or instilled beliefs, can actually contribute to issues with the thyroid, throat, tonsils, and neck. This is an example why development science is far beyond a nutritional and detoxification program; it works on the mental, emotional, and subtler levels as well.
Most people have imbalanced thyroid glands today. Some causes are:
A complete development program easily corrects most hypo-/hyper- thyroid conditions, hashimoto’s/autoimmune thyroids, and other conditions. This is accomplished through:
In addition, a product often used to restore and nourish the thyroid is Thyrocomplex. This hormone-free formula contains copious amounts of iodine (900mcg/capsule from Atlantic kelp), low-temperature freeze-dried thyroid glandular, and some freeze-dried adrenal/pituitary/spleen glandular.
