Thyroid stress and adrenals

  1. 1. Thyroid Stress and Adrenals VS “Health must be looked at as a systemic natural state” Dr. Bergman
  2. 2. Time Line 25 diagnosed with low thyroid 35 Gall Bladder removed 45 Fibroids & Hysterectomy 55 Breast Cancer Mastectomy Bad Luck Bad Genes or Bad Medical Care
  3. 3. Adrenal /Pituitary / Thyroid / Axis TRH = Thyroid releasing Hormone (Hypothalamus senses T4) TSH = Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (Pituitary) Stress Hypothalamus = corticotrophin-releasing hormone = pituitary = adrenal = Cortisol = TSH
  4. 4. The thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) •Iodine is necessary for the production of T3 and T4 •ratio of T4 to T3 is roughly 20 to 1 • T4 is converted to the active T3 (three to four times more potent than T4) within the Liver, Intestines, Kidneys, Lungs •dietary selenium is essential for T3 production.
  5. 5. Lab Testing: •TSH •Total T4 •T3 uptake (measured unsaturated binding sites for thyroid transport proteins … Estrogen binds to this) •T7 (FTI , Free Thyroxin Index) •Total T3 (Decreased in Hypothyroidism, high bp meds, acute illness, starvation, steroids, anything that affects Thyroid Binding Globulin) [LOW T3 Syndrome] Lab Tests and Missed Things That Affect Them
  6. 6. Thyroid T4 99.9% is bound to TBG (Thyroxine Binding Globuline) T3 99.5% Is Bound to TBG salicylates decrease the binding (aspirin therapy contributes to Hypothyroid) Estrogens bind to TBG •Nutrient Deficiencies, Heavy metal exposure, Adrenal Stress, enzyme deficiencies, chronic illness, Oxidized PUFA’s PUFA’s= canola oil, soy oil, vegetable oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, walnut oil, ect…),Processed food additives
  7. 7. Heart Rate Blood pressure Blood Sugar LDL Cholesterol Cortisol and all Stress Hormones ---------------------------- Gut blood supply Immune system Body Regeneration TSH Decreased Low Thyroid Stress Physical, Chemical, Emotional
  8. 8. Which Body is under stress? 55 yo mom 17 yo daughter Therapy Drug Vs Problem Correction
  9. 9. Stress Physical Chemical Emotional Stress hormones Released TSH decreased Thyroid decreased Digestion decreased Serotonin decreased Prescribed: Thyroxine Anti-acids Antidepressants Sleep Rx Thyroid the Canary in the mine
  10. 10. Adrenals: all derived from cholesterol •Mineralocorticoids •glucocorticoids •sex hormones Adrenals •Estrogens •Progesterone •Testosterone •fights cancer •produces interferon •vital for immune system Adrenals the pharmacy of the body
  11. 11. No clinical findings until 90% of adrenal cortex is destroyed Up to 90% of adrenal insufficiency - women ages 20-50 Cortisol = anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant •Alcohol •Drugs •Foods •Environmental •Stress Progesterone= Protects you from cancer, infection, and autoimmune disorders. Adrenals Sex hormones(menopause in women), whole host of physical, emotional and psychological effects, from sex drive to weight gain
  12. 12. Cortisol Vital Short term vs Deadly Long term Higher and more prolonged levels of circulating cortisol •Impaired cognitive performance •Dampened thyroid function •Blood sugar imbalances •Decreased bone density •Sleep disruption •Decreased muscle mass •Elevated blood pressure •Lowered immune function •Slow wound healing •Increased abdominal fat Cortisol is a life sustaining adrenal hormone : •Blood sugar levels •Fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism •Immune responses •Anti-inflammatory actions •Blood pressure •Heart and blood vessel tone •Central nervous system activation Depression, lupus, migraine, menopause, diabetes, and aging ,MS All have chronically increased production of cortisol
  13. 13. Raises Cortisol •Low Thyroid function •Inflammation •Stress •Tissue Damage •Vaccinations •Toxic foods Lowers Thyroid •Estrogen •High Cortisol •Liver toxicity •Fluoride •Pesticides •Stress •Toxic foods •Medications •vaccinations Lowers Cortisol •Healthy Thyroid •Vegetables •Healthy Water Helps Thyroid •Healthy Gut •Low Cortisol •Healthy food •Healthy water •Low Stress Metabolic Balance Cortisol vs Thyroid ThyroidCortisol
  14. 14. Iodine Iodine is a key component of thyroid hormone Iodine deficiency linked to Breast Cancer Iodine is Mimicked By: Chlorine, fluorine and bromine •halides like iodine, they compete for your iodine receptors. Bromine (40 years ago Iodine was replaced by Bromine): • Banned in UK 1990, Canada 1994 • plastics, pesticides, hot tub treatments, fire retardants, some flours and bakery goods, and even some soft drinks www.ancientpurity.com
  15. 15. Fluoride as a Medical Intervention for Hyperthyroid The use of fluoride as an anti-thyroid treatment beginning in the 1800s linking fluoride ingestion to goiter, a swelling of the thyroid gland resulting from a hypothyroid condition. Up until the 1970s, scientists in Europe prescribed fluoride to reduce the basal metabolism rate in patients with an over- active thyroid gland doses of just 2 to 3 milligrams of fluoride is sufficient to reduce thyroid activity in hyperthyroid patients . . Dose (mg) .353 .173 1.80 Item  12 oz. Coke  8 oz Milk  6 oz. Wheaties Fluoride PPM .98 .72 10   Exceeds "Optimum Dose"  233%
  16. 16. Gluten, GMO, Vaccinations, Neurotoxins, Pesticides and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Gluten and food sensitivities and leaky gut can cause inflammation. Gluten can cause autoimmune responses and is responsible for 30% of Hashimoto's thyroiditis •food particles can then be absorbed into your bloodstream where your body misidentifies them as antigens •The body then produces antibodies against them These antigens are similar to molecules in your thyroid gland. So your body accidentally attacks your thyroid
  17. 17. • Hyperthyroid with bouts of Hypothyroid • from excess iodine or decreased selinium • Diagnosed by anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies in blood • digestive system linked to • autoimmune diseases • lack of beneficial bacteria • diet high in refined foods • protein found in gluten looks very similar to our thyroid Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Grave’s Dis. Autoimmune Disease •Grave’s = iodine supplements/ heal the liver •Vit D suppresses autoimmune system diseases •Liver Health Essential to excrete the extra T4 •Selenium Supplements •Herbs: •Bugleweed – decreases TSH production •Motherwort – Decreases Palpitations and Tachycardia
  18. 18. 2006 report Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA's Standards, the National Research Council (NRC) "several lines of information indicate an effect of fluoride on thyroid function.“ "fluoride exposure in humans is associated with elevated TSH concentrations, increased goiter prevalence, and altered T4 and T3 concentrations" with "similar effects on T4 and T3…reported in experimental animals." •NRC panel recommended "effects of fluoride on various aspects of endocrine function should be examined further, particularly with respect to a possible role in the development of several diseases or mental states in the United States“ "fluoride exposure in humans is associated with elevated TSH concentrations, increased goiter prevalence, and altered T4 and T3 concentrations" with "similar effects on T4 and T3…reported in experimental animals."
  19. 19. fatigue, loss of energy, general lethargy cold intolerance muscle and/or joint pain decreased sweating depression puffiness weight gain coarse or dry skin and hair hair loss sleep apnea carpal tunnel syndrome forgetfulness, impaired memory, inability to concentrate weakness in extremities bradycardia (reduced heart rate) menstrual disturbances decreased appetite impaired fertility constipation fullness in the throat, hoarseness increased risk of heart disease increased "bad" cholesterol (LDL) decreased hearing emotional instability blurred vision mental impairment Symptoms of Hypothyroid

Stress Hormones Catecholamine's Adrenaline, Cortisol
  26. 26. Approximately 90% of the mercury, heavy metals and toxins contained in our bodies gets eliminated through stools Chlorella , Spirulina are algae that has very high levels of chlorophyll Bentonite Clay Absorbs Toxins (don’t take with suppliments)
  27. 27.  juicing removes the indigestible fiber, so nutrients are available to the body in much larger quantities than if the piece of fruit or vegetable was eaten whole.  when you eat a raw carrot, you are only able to assimilate about 1% of the available beta carotene. When a carrot is juiced, removing the fiber, nearly 100% of the beta carotene can be assimilated.
  28. 28. ENZYMES All enzymes are proteins, but not all proteins are enzymes . each chemical reaction in an body requires its own specific enzyme . enzymes can be called an ORGANIC CATALYST and are never changed by their reactions! . Enzyme helpers = COENZYMES or VITAMINS enzymes are named for what they work on enzyme names always end in -ASE Lipase = for fat Lactase = for milk sugars Peptidase, Protease = for protein  Amylase = Starches *Patients with Reflux avoid Protease till Gut is Healed about 30 days
