Thyroid Supplements
 
(See Supplements below or Click Here)
 

 
Hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid, is the overproduction of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, and is most commonly caused by the development of Graves' disease,[citation needed] an autoimmune disease in which antibodies are produced which stimulate the thyroid to secrete excessive quantities of thyroid hormones. The disease can result in the formation of a toxic goiter as a result of thyroid growth in response to a lack of negative feedback mechanisms. It presents with symptoms such as a thyroid goiter, protruding eyes (exopthalmos), palpitations, excess sweating, diarrhea, weight loss, muscle weakness and unusual sensitivity to heat. The appetite is often increased.

Beta blockers are used to decrease symptoms of hyperthyroidism such as increased heart rate, tremors, anxiety and heart palpitations, and anti-thyroid drugs are used to decrease the production of thyroid hormones, in particular, in the case of Graves' disease. These medications take several months to take full effect and have side-effects such as skin rash or a drop in white blood cell count, which decreases the ability of the body to fight off infections. These drugs involve frequent dosing (often one pill every 8 hours) and often require frequent doctor visits and blood tests to monitor the treatment, and may sometimes lose effectiveness over time. Due to the side-effects[clarification needed] and inconvenience of such drug regimens, some patients choose to undergo radioactive iodine-131 treatment. Radioactive iodine is administered in order to destroy a proportion of or the entire thyroid gland, since the radioactive iodine is selectively taken up by the gland and gradually destroys the cells of the gland. Alternatively, the gland may be partially or entirely removed surgically, though iodine treatment is usually preferred since the surgery is invasive and carries a risk of damage to the parathyroid glands or the nerves controlling the vocal cords. If the entire thyroid gland is removed, hypothyroidism results.[21]



Hypothyroidism is the underproduction of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4. Hypothyroid disorders may occur as a result of congenital thyroid abnormalities (see congenital hypothyroidism), autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, iodine deficiency (more likely in poorer countries) or the removal of the thyroid following surgery to treat severe hyperthyroidism and/or thyroid cancer. Typical symptoms are abnormal weight gain, tiredness, baldness, cold intolerance, and bradycardia. Hypothyroidism is treated with hormone replacement therapy, such as levothyroxine, which is typically required for the rest of the patient's life. Thyroid hormone treatment is given under the care of a physician and may take a few weeks to become effective.[22]

Negative feedback mechanisms result in growth of the thyroid gland when thyroid hormones are being produced in sufficiently low quantities as a means of increasing the thyroid output; however, where the hypothyroidism is caused by iodine insufficiency, the thyroid is unable to produce T3 and T4 and as a result, the thyroid may continue to grow to form a non-toxic goiter. It is termed non-toxic as it does not produce toxic quantities of thyroid hormones, despite its size.


Thyroid disorders include hyperthyroidism (abnormally increased activity), hypothyroidism (abnormally decreased activity) and thyroid nodules, which are generally benign thyroid neoplasms, but may be thyroid cancers. All these disorders may give rise to goiter, that is, an enlarged thyroid.


 

HYPOTHYROIDISM

INTRODUCTION: About 50% of people with health issues have some sort of endocrine problem. Many have thyroid issues. In primary hypothyroidism, the thyroid is the basic issue. With secondary hypothyroidism, the basic problem is with other glands that affect the thyroid. About 80% of those with thyroid problems are women. American men and women are continually dosed with estrogen or estrogen-like compounds in drugs, food (especially soy), water, and air. Excess estrogen interferes with the conversion of T4 to the active T3. Add to this our exposure to chlorine and fluoride in our water. Both of these block the activity of iodine. Also, most Americans have an iodine deficiency. Many have protein deficiencies. (Many of these concepts are based on research by Dr. Harry Eidenier, Jr., Ph.D.)

DETECTION: This is a combination of looking at symptoms and then tests.

SYMPTOMS: Primary and secondary hypothyroidism have similar symptoms. Symptoms provide about half of the needed information. Look for:

- Morning headaches that wear off during the day.
- Low morning underarm temperature. (Adrenal, pituitary or other issues such as elevated estrogen can also cause this.)
- Depression.
- Dry or brittle hair, or hair that falls out.
- Dry or itching skin.
- Sensitivity to cold. Thyroid is the heater.
- Slow wound healing.
- Joint stiffness.
- Poor circulation.
- Cold or numbness of the hands or feet.
- Loss of the outside portion of the eyebrows.
- Increase in weight even on a low calorie or low carbohydrate diet.
- Reduced initiative.
- Mental confusion.
- Poor memory.
- Ringing in the ears along with decreased blood pressure and/or slow pulse. (This can also be an adrenal problem.)
- Muscle cramps while at rest.
- Catching colds or other infections easily. Difficulty recovering from infections.
- Requiring excessive sleep (more than 8 hours).
- Chronic digestive problems. This is often low stomach acid.
- Edema, especially in the face.
- Constipation.

TESTS: Tests provide about half of the needed information. Out of 100 patients with the above symptoms, about 10 will have genuine (primary) hypothyroidism. The rest will mostly be excessive adrenal (cortisol) output blocking conversion from T4 to active T3, or low pituitary function leading to low thyroid function. Some cases are excess estrogen or low adrenal function.

- TSH. This is the primary test. The healthy range is about 2.0-4.0. With symptoms and a reading above 4.0, this is probably primary hypothyroidism. With symptoms and a score below 2.0, the problem is probably a weak anterior pituitary. If the TSH is between 2.0 and 4.0, look at the T4, T3, and cortisol.

- T4 (thyroxin) should be in the middle or just above the middle of the normal range.

- T3 or T3 uptake should be in the middle or just above the middle of the normal range. If there are symptoms, and the T4 is in the middle or upper part of its range, and the T3 is in the lower part of its range, the person is an under-converter.

- Cortisol from a salivary adrenal stress test. Blood TSH, T4, and T3 may be fine. But if there are symptoms, cortisol may be high because of stress or excess carbohydrates in the diet. If the cortisol is high, the patient is almost certainly making reverse T3 instead of real T3. Reverse T3 is not a functional hormone but it looks like normal T3 on a blood test. This is often treated with T3 and T3 may relieve symptoms. But it may be better treated as a high cortisol issue. At least half of adrenal issues are excess cortisol output!

- Estrogen is best tested from a saliva sample.

- Iodine. Paint a silver dollar size of drugstore tincture of iodine on your skin. If it soaks in quickly (the stain is gone in less than 24 hours), you need iodine unless you have an iodine allergy.

- Basal temperature. The goal is 97.8-98.2.

TREATMENT: Diet should have adequate protein and lots of vegetables. Fewer grains are best for most people. Some fruit. Avoid sugar. Drink reverse osmosis or distilled water and use a shower filter. Use flax oil (3-6 grams a day) or EPA/DHA. Eliminate caffeine and nicotine. Consider Betaine HCl to replace missing stomach acid. Consider digestive enzymes.

Primary hypothyroidism (high TSH) - Biotics GTA and Meda-Stim, 3-6 of each per day. GTA is a thyroid support preparation. Meda-Stim helps convert T4 to T3. These will reduce high TSH 95% of the time. Avoid cabbage family foods and millet.

Weak anterior pituitary (low TSH) - Biotics Thyrostim and Cytozyme PT/HPT. 3-6 of each per day.

Under-converter (low T3) - use Biotics Meda-Stim.

Adrenal - for excess cortisol (reverse T3) use Biotics ADHS, 1 with breakfast and 1 with lunch to lower cortisol. Biotics Meda-Stim, 3-6 per day. This is also a good program for Wilson's Syndrome (Low T3 in the tissues). Consider Biotics Glucobalance. Diet is crucial. Excess carbohydrates will often block progress. If cortisol is low, consider Bezwecken Isocort, 3-6 per day.

Excess Estrogen - Biotics Calcium D-Glucarate (1 twice a day) helps the liver detoxify excess estrogen.

TIME: Symptoms often improve in three weeks or less. If the symptoms and lab values are not improving within 30-45 days, consider natural hormone replacement such as Armour Thyroid or T3. Armour Thyroid contains 4.22 parts of T4 to 1 part of T3. It may take a year for a low basal temperature or TSH to come up. Do not worry too much about a temperature that is slightly low if symptoms are absent. Hormone replacement must be managed carefully and levels must be tested often because excess thyroid hormone can cause osteoporosis and other problems.

Las Vegas I am on two different chemo drugs so my immune system is significantly suppressed. After I spent a week in the hospital with a kidney infection, I started taking Biotics Research Liquid Iodine to fight off infections as they start (sinus or UTI, etc.). I take it in water and rinse away my infection. I haven't had to go to the doctor in 3 years for any illness. My daughter takes it too with the same results. I make sure to take it with probiotics to keep the good bacteria in my system.

Iosol Formula II Iodine - Product Image

Iosol Formula II Iodine

Indications: Thyroid Health Skin Health Metabolism Cardiovascular health Energy Ingredients Ammonium iodine
Ingredients: Ammonium iodine
 
Product Description
Essential trace minerals such as iodine use to have a natural ecosystem supply route to replenish soils of the earth. Iodine came from the ocean. The wind carried iodine over the earth. When it rained trace minerals were deposited and absorbed into the soil. The amount of iodine in the diet varied depending upon the amount of iodine present in the soil in which plants grow or which animal's grazed. Even back as far as the 1930's iodine carried by the wind was depleted when it arrived to the middle of the United States. This region became known as the Goiter Belt. This epidemic forced the U.S. Government to promote iodine as an essential nutrient to be added primarily to salt to combat the terrible disease known as goiter. Iosol originally was named Ioaquasol. Io was for iodine, aqua for water, and sol for solubility. This formula has been in constant use since the early 1940's. Today more nutrition-oriented health care doctors, pharmacies and health-food stores use this formula as a dietary thyroid support. Iosol is often used successfully when other herbs, dulse, kelp and sodium/potassium iodides don't work. Iosol is a high potency iodine and can be used with impunity. Iosol is used in clinics as a dietary food supplement to raise the metabolism and support the thyroid. Iosol is nontoxic and water-soluble. Unlike a sodium or potassium iodide Iosol becomes a free iodine which is much easier to absorb and assimilate. The free iodine is the essential trace element which will help raise your metabolism and restore the electrical balance of the body. Iodine is an essential trace mineral necessary to make hormones which help maintain certain functions of regulating your metabolism.

Iodine & Tyrosine - Product Image

Iodine & Tyrosine

Iodine & Tyrosine, 60 Vegetarian Capsules

Essential mineral and amino acid support for the thyroid gland*

  • key nutrients for thyroid support*
  • also promotes healthy adrenal function*
  • made without flowing agents that can inhibit bioavailability
Product Information
The thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), are produced by the thyroid gland. The major form of thyroid hormone in the blood is thyroxine (T4); in fact, there is generally 20 times more T4 in the blood than T3. The thyroid hormones are essential to the proper development and differentiation of all cells of the human body.* The thyroid hormones regulate the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, affecting how humans use these compounds to produce energy.* Thyroid hormones have important functions in the body; for example, thyroxine supports cardiac output, heart rate, respiratory rate, and basal metabolic rate.*

The thyroid gland cannot produce its hormones without the presence of the amino acid L-tyrosine and the mineral iodine.* Thus, a deficiency of either the amino acid or the mineral or both could contribute to low thyroid hormone levels.* Studies have found L-tyrosine may be beneficial for treating fatigue, a common symptom of low thyroid hormone levels.*

Individuals should be aware that some foods can cause a relative iodine deficiency by binding to iodine, making it inaccessible for thyroid hormone production, although cooking these foods tends to make them less so. Such foods include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, soy, peanuts, pine nuts, turnips, and rutabaga.

Tyrosine is also an important cofactor for adrenal neurotransmitter synthesis, as it is converted In the adrenal glands into dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.*

What about allergies to iodine? The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology has issued a position statement on the rarity of a true iodine allergic reaction. They state that people who react to iodine-containing intravenous contrast material, skin preparations and shell fish are reacting allergically to a component other than the iodine (position statement, Feb. 24, 2004). What are the possible side effects? Dr. Guy Abraham clearly describes the known risk to iodine supplementation and reports that adverse effects are extremely uncommon if not non-existent in the doses in the ranges suggested here. Potential adverse effects related to iodide include: Thyrotoxicosis; iodine-induced goiter; brassy taste; increased salivation; coryza (symptoms of head cold); sneezing; headache; mild acneiform lesions in the seborrheic areas. Since bromine toxicity is common (bromine replaced iodine in breads and other bakery items in the 70's and most people are exposed to high levels), there may be symptoms of bromine detox. Detoxification consists of mobilization, binding and removal. Detoxes should always be monitored; if toxins are being bound and removed it should alleviate detox symptoms. If symptoms occur, reducing the dosage (reduces mobilization) and increasing nutritional support helps (Nutri-West's Total Systemic Detox, Total Liver D-Tox, Complete Glutathione, Complete Omega 3 Essentials or Complete Hi-potency Omega 3 Liquid are all good detox products). As with any other protocol, if any ill effects are suspected, stop taking the product and check with your practitioner. Some claim that the relatively high doses of iodine used in orthoiodosupplementation may lead to hypothyroidism, goiter or other thyroid problems. "This just is not the case. A review of the literature revealed that the organic forms of iodine were involved in most of these complications (editor's note: even though "organic" is usually a good thing, it is not when it comes to the form of iodine supplementation you want). Iodine intake has fallen over 50% in the U.S. over the last 30 years. During this same time, major increases in diabetes, hypertension, obesity, breast and thyroid cancer, and other thyroid disorders, have been reported. It appears to us that iodine deficiency, not iodine excess may be responsible for the increase of these conditions" (Dr. Guy Abraham, MD). Again, utilizing the Iodine Load/Urine Test from Labrix can be helpful, and monitoring lab tests can help to document clinical improvement. Dr. Alan Gaby points out that absence of iodine side effects is most likely correlated to utilizing a comprehensive nutritional program. Suggestions have included nutrients such as vitamin C and magnesium (Nutri-West has C-1000 TR and Aspartic-Mag). See above question for diminishing effects due to bromine detox. What are the drug interactions? Because of the high iodine content of the drug amiodarone, the thyroid gland is effectively saturated, thus preventing further uptake of isotopes of iodine. Supplementing with additional iodine is generally not warranted. Diuretics (like amiloride, spironolactone or triamterene) can raise potassium levels, and again, additional potassium may not be warranted. Are some people especially sensitive to the adverse effects of iodine? Technically it is correct to say that some will be especially sensitive, just as some people are more sensitive to vitamin C therapy. If someone is immune-compromised, or toxic from excess bromine exposure for instance, they may be more susceptible to adverse effects. If there is any question, careful monitoring, individualized doses, proper follow-up visits and lab testing can help minimize adverse effects. What about pregnancy/breast-feeding? There is a good review suggesting iodine supplementation in pregnancy, however, since there are limited studies, we suggest erring on the side of caution and avoiding in pregnancy and breast-feeding. What about supplementing in children? Most studies have not been conducted in children. As with those who are especially sensitive to the adverse effects of iodine, careful monitoring, individualized doses, proper follow-up visits and lab testing can help minimize adverse effects. What if I'm on thyroid meds? Once the body iodine stores are replete, a lower dose or complete cessation of the medication is possible (consult your physician). Lab tests are suggested for monitoring. What if TSH levels go up? Please keep in mind that the need for more iodine symporters (to bring iodine into the cell) during iodine repletion can temporarily raise TSH levels (because TSH functions to increase the symporters). This can occur for up to six months after iodine supplementation, especially when the deficiency was more pronounced and should not be a concern when other lab parameters are normal.

Total Thyroid #2 - Product Image

Total Thyroid #2

Total Thyroid #2 by Nutri-West

Complete thyroid support.
 
Thyroid hormones operate in a complex hormonal environment that includes multiple organs and hormones, along with neurotransmitters such as serotonin. Dr. Winifred Cutler, the biologist, calls this the "Hormonal Symphony." When thyroid hormones are low it affects sex hormones adversely, particularly progesterone, and can lead to estrogen dominance.

Sometimes hypothyroidism is caused by an autoimmune attack on the thyroid, where antibodies destroy important thyroid molecules. This is why it is important, in any thyroid support product, to include nutrition to support homeostasis and regulation of the immune system.

Ashwagandha: In pre-clinical trials, it was revealed that ashwagandha “stimulates thyroidal activity and also enhances the antiperoxidation of hepatic tissue hormone”, and that T-3 and T-4 (thyroxine), both thyroid hormones, were increased by ashwagandha (J Pharm Pharmacol. 1998 Sep;50(9):1065-8; J Ethnopharmacol. 1999 Nov 1;67(2):233- 9.) Ashwagandha has also been found to be a potent antioxidant that prevents lipid peroxidation, and hence damage of thyroid tissue due to oxidation. This can be really important when you consider that Hashimoto’s (autoimmune hypothyroidism) is a condition of antibody production that can be increased during oxidation/ damage of thyroid tissue (Pharmacol Res. 2000 Jun;41(6):663-6.) Ashwagandha “potently inhibits proinflammatory cytokines” (Drug Discov Ther. 2011 Aug;5(4):195-201.) Ashwagandha improves immune system function and leads to improved “haematological, biochemical and immunological parameters” when supplemented (Fish Shellfish Immunol. 2012 Mar 6.) It is believed that ashwagandha may even have neuroprotective benefits (Hum Exp Toxicol. 2005 Mar;24(3):137-47).

Larch Arabinogalactan is commonly used to support the immune system and also to support the thyroid. Larch is composed of greater than 98-percent arabinogalactan, making it an excellent source for this powerfully functional nutrient. It is an excellent source of dietary fiber, and has been approved as such by the FDA. It has been shown to increase the production of short-chain fatty acids, principally butyrate and propionate, and has been shown to decrease the generation and absorption of ammonia. Butyrate is the main fuel for large intestine cells. Evidence also indicates human consumption of larch arabinogalactan has a significant effect on enhancing beneficial gut microflora, specifically increasing Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus (Altern Med Rev. 1999 Apr;4(2):96-103.) In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective four-week clinical trial, arabinogalactan was found to possess immunomodulating properties (Altern Med Rev. 2007 Mar;12(1):25-48.)

Guggul Extract: NIEHS (a division of National Institutes of Health) reported in Feb 2005 that guggul extract (gum) is increasingly being used as a dietary supplement and that “biological effects have been demonstrated on lipid metabolism, thyroid hormone homeostatsis, female reproductive tissues, and endogenous nuclear hormone receptors” (they also reported “anti-inflammatory activity” in pre-clinical trials)

(Masten, SA., PhD. Gum Guggul and Some of Its Steroidal Constituents Feb. 2005. NTP/NIEHS Research Triangle Park, NC).

Guggul supplements are reported to help regulate thyroid function and improve hypothyroidism, according to pre-clinical trial studies (S. Panda et al. Phototherapy Research. January 2005; (Tripathi YB, et al. Thyroid stimulating action of Z- guggulsterone... Planta Med . 1984;50(1):78-80.) Dr. Richard B. Kreider, author of the book "Exercise and Sport Nutrition," also states that guggulsterones, found in guggul, have the ability to increase the output of the thyroid gland and stimulate the conversion of the T4 thyroid hormone into its more active T3 form (Exercise & Sport Nutrition: Principles, Promises, Science, & Recommendations; Richard B. Kreider et al.; 2009.) Increased T3 can help increase metabolism and burn fat. The University of Maryland Medical Center recommends 25 mg of guggulsterones three times daily to lower the high cholesterol levels associated with hypothyroidism.

Exciting research may be able to confirm that guggul naturally regulates a gene receptor called farnesoid X receptor (FSX) which controls metabolism in the liver.

The iodine molecule is needed for the synthesis of the thyroid hormones. In fact, three iodine molecules are added to the thyroid hormone T3 and four iodine molecules are added to T4. The fact that iodine insufficiency is rampant, coupled with the necessity of iodine to produce thyroid hormones contributes to widespread hypothyroidism.

Coleus Forskohlii raises cyclic AMP (which raises metabolism) in many systems, including endocrine tissues such as the thyroid gland by acting at a post-surface receptor site on the thyroid (Ealey PA, et al. (Acta Endocrinol (Copenh). 1985 Mar;108(3):367-71.) This increased metabolic rate is being researched for its effect on thermogenesis, weight management and thyroid function. Cyclic AMP and the chemicals it activates comprise a second messenger system that is responsible for carrying out complex and powerful effects of hormones in the body. The forskolin in coleus forskohlii is believed to stimulate secretion of T3 and T4 in a manner similar to TSH because of its effect on cyclic AMP (Venkateswaran A. et al. J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2004 Dec;89(12):6168-72; Laurberg P.

Forskolin stimulation of thyroid secretion of T4 and T3. FEBS Lett. 1984 May 21;170(2):273-6; Hiraiwa M. Nippon Naibunpi Gakkai Zasshi. 1987 Jan 20;63(1):34-44) and also to stimulate iodine metabolism (iodine is needed to make thyroid hormones) (van Sande J, et al. Forskolin stimulates adenylate cyclase and iodine metabolism in thyroid. FEBS Lett. 1982 Dec 13;150(1):137-41.)

The following abstract points out that iodine is an antioxidant, that mg doses are safe (and effective) and that iodine has an important role in maintaining normal breast tissue as well as supporting the thyroid.

"Iodine deficiency is generally recognized as the most commonly preventable cause of mental retardation and the most common cause of endocrinopathy (goiter and primary hypothyroidism). Iodine deficiency becomes particularly critical in pregnancy due to the consequences for neurological damage during fetal development as well as during lactation. The safety of therapeutic doses of iodine above the established safe upper limit of 1 mg is evident in the lack of toxicity in the Japanese population that consumes 25 times the median intake of iodine consumption in the United States. Japan's population suffers no demonstrable increased incidence of autoimmune thyroiditis or hypothyroidism. Studies using 3-6 mg doses to effectively treat fibrocystic breast disease may reveal an important role for iodine in maintaining normal breast tissue architecture and function. Iodine may also have important antioxidant functions in breast tissue and other tissues that concentrate iodine via the sodium iodide symporter" (Patrick, L. Altern Med Rev. 2008 Jun;13(2):116-27.)

Ginseng has been traditionally used for thyroid support for many years. American Ginseng and Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng) are known as adaptogens and have been utilized traditionally for many years as thyroid support. An adaptogen is defined as an agent that helps to bring the body’s organ systems into homeostasis, whether function is high or low.

Selenium is a mineral that is absolutely essential for proper thyroid function. Selenium is highly concentrated in the thyroid gland, more so than in any other organ in the human body, indicating its role in normal thyroid function. It acts as an antioxidant that protects the thyroid gland, a cofactor nutrient that facilitates the production of thyroid hormone, and as a nutrient that is required to facilitate the conversion of T4 to T3 and also prevent the conversion of T3 into inactive, or reverse T3. Hypothyroidism can arise from many causes, however when the cause is an overabundance of reverse T3 many times the simple solution is providing enough selenium for this conversion.

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is crucial to thyroid hormone production. It is not only needed for thyroid hormone production, the tyrosine molecule is incorporated tight into the thyroid molecule. Tyrosine converts to dopamine and norepinephrine with the help of vitamin B6 and vitamin C. Norepinephrine is a neurotransmitter that can stimulate the hypothalamus and pituitary to activate the production of thyroid hormone (through TRH and TSH).

Yellow Dock is an herb which has practical applications in metabolism function, due to its high content of valuable minerals which affect thyroid health. Yellow Dock is a blood purifier that has a special synergistic function with iodine when it comes to the thyroid gland.

Gotu Kola has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine with many traditional indications. One of the indications for gotu kola is thyroid support. In addition to all of these synergistic herbs and nutrients, Total Thyroid #2 contains a blend of glandular support that ties in multiple organ systems that depend on each other to operate at full speed, including thymus, spleen, pituitary, adrenal and parotid.

Additionally, Total Thyroid #2 is packed full of the vitamins and minerals that together ensure optimal function of the thyroid gland, including: Vitamin B-1, Vitamin B-2, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-12, Vitamin A, beta carotene, Vitamin C, Niacin, Folic acid, Calcium, Manganese, Molybdenum and Zinc.
