Hypothyroidism is defined as an underactive thyroid. That means that it doesn’t make enough of the hormones it naturally produces to keep your body running normally. An underactive thyroid upsets the normal balance of chemical reactions in your body. That can cause a number of health problems, such as obesity, joint pain, infertility, and heart disease. Women are actually more likely to have this condition, especially those older than 60. When thyroid hormone levels are too low, the body’s processes start slowing down. As a result, you may begin feeling colder, more tired, constipated, or even depressed. Let’s look at a natural form of hypothyroid treatment!
Misalignments in the spine affect the brain’s ability to regulate the functions of the body. As a result, structural problems can play a role in hypothyroidism. This is why chiropractic care is a great, natural form of hypothyroid treatment! A recent study reports a 34-year-old woman who presented to a chiropractic office. She had low back pain, hip pain, upper back pain, and digestive problems. In addition, she presented with secondary hypothyroidism. She had been suffering from this condition for years! So she began chiropractic care with the goal of improving her body’s function. After 8 months of care, her pain and IBS improved significantly! Additionally, her thyroid was working so well that she had to come off of her medications in order for it to properly regulate.
Adjustments given to the cervical spine and occiput bones improve the function of the thyroid. This is because interference between the nervous system and the thyroid is removed. At Alive Chiropractic, we have seen amazing results with patients who have been able to come off of or avoid altogether taking thyroid regulating medication. This is because we use the most advanced technique and technology in chiropractic care, in order to properly support your body’s nervous system.
