Toxins Magnify Thyroid Struggles

One of the key factors that helps induce weight gain and reduces the ease with which you can lose weight is the issue of environmental toxins, chemicals in food and water, and toxins from low-grade infections (like Candida or bacterial overgrowth). This issue is always made worse if your internal plumbing systems are not up to the challenge (constipation, irritable bowel, liver issues, lymph stagnation, chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, etc.).

Some chemicals like perchlorate, chlorine, and fluoride can directly bind to your thyroid gland and reduce iodine uptake. Many other chemicals, especially the fat-soluble ones, can bind to thyroid cell membranes and participate in thyroid inflammation and thyroid autoantibody production.

Fat-soluble chemicals can readily cross your blood brain barrier and interfere with how your brain senses any hormone level, including thyroid. Endotoxins from infections (lipopolysaccharides or LPS) directly interact in the Thyroid Releasing Hormone (TRH) region of your hypothalamus gland and intentionally turn down TRH production interfering with thyroid hormone production. Endotoxins also make you hungry by elevating your stomach's hunger signal, ghrelin.

Your liver, which is your main detoxification organ, is particularly sensitive to toxic excess. Because T4 is converted to T3 on cell membranes of your liver, fat-soluble toxins readily interfere with thyroid hormone activation by your liver. One of the reasons Thyroid Helper works so well is because it helps your liver cope with this type of toxic stress, while providing the nutrients that your liver needs to perform the T4 to T3 conversion. Additional liver nutrients may be needed, such as those in Daily Detoxify, to help your liver clear toxins more efficiently while simultaneously protecting liver cells.*

If you are trying to lose weight, you must keep detox systems working well as toxins will be released from stored fat as weight is lost. These toxins can crash your thyroid long before you get to your goal weight if you don't take care to ensure they are smoothly flowing out of your body.

Extra soluble fiber is needed to bind on to these toxins as they are excreted in your bile. Such fiber also helps bowel regularity and helps reduce food cravings. We have two excellent soluble fiber supplements that are easy to mix, taste good, and have no sweeteners of any kind (Fiber Helper). Fiber helps regularity, but if you are constipated then you may need Motility Helper, a colon cleansing supplement that helps move the bowels. No progress on thyroid issues occurs if you are constipated.*

Other supplements that are helpful for those in a toxic rut include Daily Detoxify (the best liver support supplement), high quality Chlorella (a great binder of fat-soluble toxic waste), and Immune Plus (arabinogalactan for congested lymph - excess mucous, shoulder stiffness, etc.).*

In order to make sustained thyroid improvement, it is vital to keep detoxification and internal plumbing flowing in a healthy way.
