Article Body:
Hypothyroidism (low thyroid)is a hormone imbalance caused when the
thyroid does not produce enough thyroid hormone.

What are the Symptoms of Hypothyroid? The most common are fatigue and
intolerance to cold. If everybody is wearing short sleeves and you are
wearing a jacket, you most likely have a hypothyroid issue. Other common
symptoms are mental instability or depression, muscle weakness and
fatigue, poor memory, lethargy and headaches. Still other symptoms are
deep slow speech, loss of hair, cold hands and feet, constipation, pale
thick skin, brittle nails, and swelling of the face and eyelids. And
finally… excessive and painful menstrual flow, nervousness and
palpitations.

How to Know for Sure?
You can ask your doctor to perform a thyroid test and/or conduct the
following simple self-test at home:

You must first sleep through a full night. (The test will not work if you
have gotten up or gone to the bathroom.) When you are awake but still in
bed, take your temperature in your armpit. Do this and record the
temperatures 3 days in a row. A normal reading would be between 97.8 -
98.2 Fahrenheit. A reading below 97.8 would indicate hypothyroid
activity. (Above 98.2 would indicate hyperthyroid activity.) If you are
menstruating, take your temperature on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th day of the
period.

Causative Influences
Influences which can contribute to Hypothryroidism are malnourishment,
and thyroid and pituitary exhaustion due to excessive caffeine, sugar,
alcohol and other stimulants. Malnourishment, of course, does not mean
lack of food, but rather, a diet of processed, unnatural foods that are
not nourishing. Other environmental factors include the consumption of
fluoridated water, and pesticides and radiation.

Women Take Note
One out of eight women will develop hypothyroid problems in their life.
The condition often manifests between 30 and 50, along with the hormonal
changes taking place then. As soon as you enter this age range, it pays
to stay alert to this issue. By "nipping it in the bud' you can spare
yourself unnecessary suffering. This is why the regular use of a natural
progesterone hormone cream like Prosperin can be very helpful.

Helpful Supplements

1. 2000 - 3000 mg. of kelp each day (kelp is rich in iodine, vitamin B
and folic acid.) and/or
2. L tyrosine, 500 mg. twice daily, taken on an empty stomach, and not
with milk.
3. Raw thyroid glandular - available from your physician.
4. Prosperine for women, Prosperon for men. To learn the value of natural
progesterone creams.
5. 2000 mg. vitamin C, to support the adrenal glands

And as always, avoid stress, rest, enjoy your life, eat a healthy diet,
and do all your disciplines with joy, every moment.

Warmly, Pieternel van Giersbergen.
