Natural Thyroid Hormone Optimization
The thyroid gland governs the body's metabolism and development through the production of thyroid hormones. These hormones set our body's metabolic rate, the rate at which our body's cells produce and utilize energy. If your thyroid gland was removed, and you were not given supplemental thyroid, then you might live one year. You would unwind like a toy soldier on Christmas morning and your body would go to room temperature. The thyroid hormones are essential for life.
If the thyroid hormone is not properly assimilated into the cell, it is never used and your body runs at a lower energy level. Insufficient thyroid hormone leads to growth failure by delaying bone growth and bone maturation.
