Isn’t a blood test enough?

Unfortunately not. The standard blood tests for assessing thyroid function, only show how much hormone we have in the blood, not how well they are working. You may have adequate levels of thyroid hormones in your blood, but if they aren’t properly working, it won’t matter! Additionally, around 75% of thyroid hormone is stored in the muscle and brain tissue, NOT in the blood, so it can be difficult to see the whole picture when assessing the blood. An example of two of the many functional tests we run would be iodine and Reverse T3. If you have a deficiency of iodine, you will be unable to make thyroid hormone and if you have a high Reverse T3, your thyroid hormone will not be able to work, even if your levels thyroid hormone levels are good. It requires a deeper understanding of the contributing factors to thyroid health and the full picture of functional tests required to get a true picture of how your thyroid hormones are actually working.

What is Body Basal temperature test?

Requires taking your temperature first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. Your temperature must be taken at the same time every day to provide accurate results. These results should taken to and consulted with a trained professional.

What role does the thyroid have in the body?

The thyroid plays a key role in your body. It’s like a conductor, directing every cell in your body, including those in the central nervous system, heart, liver, kidneys, skin, bone and muscles.

Among its most important functions is the control of the rate of metabolism, which of course impacts weight. Thyroid hormones tell every cell in the body how quickly, efficiently and effectively to do their jobs, including how quickly you think, lose weight and detox. Without a well-functioning thyroid gland you may experience a myriad of symptoms, the most common of which include weight gain, fatigue, muscle pain and hair loss.

What is the Thyroid?


lucy_rose December 23, 2019

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped hormonal gland that sits at the front of your throat. It sits just below your Adams apple and has two lobes that rest on either side of your wind pipe.The thyroid is like the conductor at the orchestra; it directs the speed of the rest of the body. It manages your weight, mood, temperature and even your memory! Your thyroid also works closely with your adrenal glands (the stress and energy centers of the body) and the blood sugar system to regulate energy.

Overall, the thyroid gland is responsible for the speed of cellular function, known as metabolism (metabolic and chemical processes) in your body. This includes reflex speed, heart speed, mental speed and many other functions by affecting every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. The thyroid gland is therefore essential for life, growth and development. It works with all the hormones in the body to tell them what to do and how to work!

The hormones that the thyroid gland excretes are called T4, T3, T2, T1 and calcitonin. The thyroid gland manufactures approximately 80% T4, 20% T3 (the quantities and function of T1 and T2 are largely unknown). T3 is five to seven times stronger than T4.
