Hypothyroidism

Water fluoridation, at levels 20 times lower than EPA standards, increases hypothyroidism

By Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) Water fluoridation may cause hypothyroidism at levels dramatically lower than the maximum level allowed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), according to a new study conducted by researchers from the University of Kent and published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, a British Medical Journal (BMJ) publication.

Drinking fluoridated water can lead to hypothyroidism, depression and obesity, study finds

By Benson: (NaturalNews) Drinking water that's been artificially fluoridated with synthetic fluoride chemicals has been shown in a new peer-reviewed study to increase the risk of underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, by 30 percent or more.

Researchers from the University of Kent in the UK, publishing their work in the Journal of Epidemiological & Community Health, found that people who consume fluoridated water are much more likely than people who don't to suffer from a sluggish thyroid, a chronic health condition that often results in depression and obesity.

By Wilson: (NaturalNews) The tables are finally starting to turn in regard to the perception that the world has of water fluoridation following the release of at least two reputable studies over the past three years documenting the adverse health effects caused by the chemical.

Researchers from the University of Kent, a public research university based in the United Kingdom, conducted the latest and considerably groundbreaking study on the health effects potentially caused by adding fluoride to the public's water.

Foods and supplements that heal the thyroid

By Edwards: (NaturalNews) Fresh, raw, organic produce heals. Produce heals everything. Other than that, foods high in iodine and foods that are high in selenium are known to aid thyroid function.

The thyroid gland requires iodine to function. Iodine taken by itself or ingested through fortified salt can be problematic. Good food sources include: meat, seafood, yogurt, milk, and eggs, but there are vegan sources as well.

Avoid hypothyroidism by avoiding the causes

By Edwards: (NaturalNews) There are many pathways available for the regulation of the production and conversion of thyroid hormones. Consequently, there are a lot of opportunities for things to go wrong. A healthy thyroid relies on many factors, including, but not limited to, a healthy endocrine system, stable hormone levels, healthy and balanced gut flora, a healthy liver, properly functioning adrenals, healthy kidneys, and clean, healthy blood.

Do you suffer from hypothyroidism? How to tell if your thyroid is slow

By Edwards: (NaturalNews) There are various testing methods for poor thyroid function, but the testing is problematic. Most physicians use outdated reference ranges when testing thyroid function. Also, studies have demonstrated that standard thyroid tests do not correlate well with tissue thyroid levels, which causes inaccurate diagnoses.

Most physicians and endocrinologists believe TSH is the best indicator of the thyroid function of an individual. However, someone can suffer from a significantly slow thyroid despite having a normal TSH, free T3, and free T4.

Warning signs of iodine deficiency


Iodine is a trace element that the body needs for the production of thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland combines iodine with tyrosine, an amino acid, to manufacture the thyroid hormones. These hormones are needed for maintaining normal and healthy metabolism in all cells in the body. Consequently, a lack of iodine in one's dietary intake could result in numerous thyroid-related health conditions and symptoms.
