Thyroid Gland

The thyroid gland is part of the glandular or endocrine system. The English medical term derives from the Greek words: thyreos meaning “shield” and eidos meaning “form”.

The thyroid gland is located at the front of the neck. It is slightly heavier in women than in men and gets bigger during pregnancy.

The thyroid gland secretes the hormone “thyroxine” directly into the bloodstream. Thyroxine is also called “thyroid hormone”. Thyroxine is an iodine-containing compound. In fact, the thyroid gland itself is mostly made up of the mineral iodine and is therefore vital and necessary for optimal thyroid health and function.

The function of the thyroid gland includes: regulation of normal body growth during infancy and childhood, regulation of metabolism, regulation of body temperature, maintenance of skeletal maturation; and the regulation of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. These above functions are dependent on thyroxine or thyroid hormone.

The thyroid gland in most Americans is sluggish, if not downright inactive. This is especially true of American women. The inactive or underactive thyroid gland plays a major role in the modern American obesity epidemic, especially in women, due to the fact that an underactive or inactive thyroid gland impairs metabolism and therefore body heat which depends on burning fat converted from sugar.

Pathologies of the thyroid gland include: hypothyroidism, goiter, thyroid cancer and thyroiditis, to name a few. The lack of iodine plays a major role in the development of these diseases or pathologies.

Many women who suffer from thyroid problems seek medical help from doctors who prescribe thyroid-damaging pharmaceutical drugs that contain thyroid tracers that contain radiation to irradiate and kill the thyroid gland entirely. With western allopathic medicine, their motto is, if you can’t fix it, destroy it or delete it.

As the thyroid gland in the body corresponds to the fifth chakra (throat chakra), imbalance of the fifth chakra also plays a role in thyroid problems. A chakra is a “wheel” or “vortex” that cannot be seen with the physical eye and is totally energy based. There are a total of seven major chakras located in certain organs of the body and the fifth chakra is located in the throat region. The color of the fifth chakra is light blue and blue, so any gemstone of that color (or even purple or violet) can help balance or correct imbalances in that particular chakra.

Blue colored stones include: blue lace agate, angelite, chrysocola, celestite, azurite, and lapis lazuli. These stones can be placed directly on the thyroid gland for a few minutes to help correct any imbalances in this chakra.

You know it’s very weird in the sense that the thyroid gland in addition to responding to the color blue also responds to the color purple and the main mineral of the thyroid gland is iodine, a term derived from the Greek word ioeides meaning ” purple.”

Iodine is a blue-black solid that becomes a purple vapor when heated. Therefore, the thyroid gland responds to blue and purple.

It amazes me how a single mineral such as iodine can cause some of the most horrific illnesses in your health. Did you know that cretinism (which includes drawfism, mental retardation, gross tongue, and muscle incoordination) is the result of thyroid deficiency? Midgets (dwarfs) are the direct result of a lack of iodine in the mother’s body during pregnancy. The same goes for mental retardation. Both of these conditions can be prevented by sufficient amounts of iodine in the body.

And have you ever seen anyone with a goiter? It looks like a big tumor on the neck. Goiter is simply the result of severe iodine deficiency and can be reversed with adequate amounts of iodine in the daily diet.

Great natural sources of iodine include: white oak bark, black walnut hulls, watercress, chickweed, and seaweed, especially seaweed, which includes Nori, Dulse, Kelp, Irish Moss, Iceland Moss, Bladderwrack, Spirulina, Chlorella, Hiziki, Arame, Wakame, Red Sea Algae and Blue-Green Algae to name a few. In fact, seaweed is the best food for humans because it provides us with all the nutrients we need for optimal health. You don’t have to eat fish as a source of iodine. Fish are rich in iodine because what do fish eat? Answer: Seaweed! And what is seaweed rich in? Answer: IODINE! So leave the fish alone and let them live and just do like the fish and eat algae to get your natural iodine.

Iodized salt as a source of iodine? I do not think so! Although iodized salt may have reduced the incidence of cretinism in the United States, it has played a major role in the development of high blood pressure in this country. Thus, cretinism was replaced by arterial hypertension.

Instead of using iodized salt under the banner of sodium chloride (white table salt), it’s much better (and safer) to use sea salt (available at health food stores).

Additionally, magnets can greatly help with thyroid problems by stimulating the thyroid gland. Just place a magnet on the thyroid gland for a few hours and the thyroid will wake up. This technique alone will reverse thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland).

If you are pregnant, it is essential that you get adequate amounts of iodine.

Iodine is essential for anyone trying to lose weight (fat), naturally.

I have concocted an Iodine Phosphate Formula and a Thyroid Formula which are both high in natural iodine and contain the finest seaweeds and sea grasses providing very high amounts of natural iodine. Seaweed not only provides iodine, but it has a mucilaginous and bulking effect in the colon which aids in colon cleansing and stool formation, and most importantly, suppresses hunger (or appetite), which the obese people need to lose weight.

So in closing, just remember that: (1) every thyroid condition can be reversed or cured with natural iodine, and (2) pharmaceutical grade synthetic iodine is toxic and can be fatal.
