Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC, Certified Gluten Specialist, and Director of Vital Health, Inc. outlines what tests and factors need to be considered when diagnosing thyroid function and how inflammation levels in the body play a key role. The thyroid is a powerful gland located on the front part of the neck below the Adam’s apple. The gland produces thyroid hormones, which regulate body metabolism. Thyroid hormones are important in regulating body energy, the body’s use of other hormones and vitamins, and the growth and maturation of body tissues. Getting proper diagnosis and treatment for proper thyroid function is challenging since the thyroid affects and is in-turn affected by so many critical parts of the body.
Most people do not realize that the small butterfly shaped gland in their neck is responsible for producing a hormone receptor that connects with every cell in the human body. This means that if the thyroid gland, or the hormones it produces are not working right, they can suffer from a host of symptoms, began Dr. Griffin.
