The thyroid gland, often only referred to as the thyroid, is a vital part of the human body. This gland is responsible for releasing certain hormones that have an effect on growth and metabolism. The thyroid works by releasing certain hormones directly into the blood circulatory system for particular functions. This gland can be found in the front section of your neck. It has a shape that is similar to a butterfly, with the left and right sides being connected by a small amount of tissue, formed like a strip, at the center of the neck. The two most essential hormones that are produced and released into the bloodstream by the thyroid, as reported by PubMed Health, includes Triiodothyronine, also simply known as T3, and Tetraiodothyronine, also simply known as T4 or Thyroxine. In addition to these two hormones, the thyroid also produced another hormone known as Calcitonin.
The human body is quite complex and problems can arise at any time. The thyroid itself is prone to develop certain disorders that affects either its function or its structure. Since the thyroid gland is stimulated by hormones that are released by the hypothalamus of the brain and the pituitary gland, issues that arise with these parts of the body can also have an adverse effect on the thyroid gland’s function. The American Thyroid Association reports that at least 12% of all American citizens develops some type of thyroid condition at some point in their lives. This equates to approximately 20 million Americans suffering from some type of thyroid disease. Still, as much as 60% of individuals who have developed a thyroid disease are not aware that they are suffering from the particular condition they have developed. It is also important to note that women are up to eight times at a higher risk of developing a thyroid problem than men.
Types Of Thyroid Disorders
A large number of thyroid disorders and diseases have been identified by medical experts. While the most commonly referred to problems with the thyroid include an underactive and an overactive thyroid, it is important to consider the fact that these problems are most often caused by an underlying thyroid disorder. Let’s consider the most commonly diagnosed thyroid disorders.
In medical terms, this disease is often referred to as chronic lymphatic thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s Disease is known to be the most common disease that causes hypothyroidism, also known as an underactive thyroid. This disease is the result of the body’s immune system attacking the thyroid gland; thus affecting its ability to produce an adequate amount of hormones. People with Hashimoto’s Disease may experience symptoms such as fatigue, constipation, dry skin, thinning hair, a puffy face, intolerance to colder weather and an enlarged thyroid. Women often also find that they have irregular menstruation.
This disease is quite the opposite of Hashimoto’s Disease. While Hashimoto’s Disease is known to cause an underactive thyroid, Grave’s Disease causes the thyroid gland to become overactive. An overactive thyroid is also known as hyperthyroidism. Grave’s Disease is also classified as an autoimmune disorder and also occurs when the immune system starts to attack the thyroid gland mistakenly. In this case, however, hormone production within the thyroid gland is increased. This thyroid disease is most common in people who smoke and stress a lot. Pregnant women are also at a higher risk of developing Grave’s Disease. Symptoms of Grave’s Disease may include anxiety, fatigue, irritability, excessive sweating, sleeping problems, diarrhea, an enlarged thyroid, vision problems, hand tremors and an irregular heartbeat. Similar to Hashimoto’s Disease, Grave’s Disease can also lead to changes in a woman’s menstrual cycle.
Bioresonance therapy has been proven to be a potentially effective option for treating certain thyroid problems, including those that causes the thyroid to become overactive and underactive. Bioresonance therapy is used in two stages to treat thyroid conditions and diseases. Firstly, stress factors that are detected that may be causing issues with the affected patient’s thyroid gland is treated. Once these stress factors have been treated successfully, a second phase of treatment is initiated that consists of a stabilizing therapeutic program. In addition, a particular therapy system, known as Sissi Karz, can also be utilized through bioresonance therapy. The Sizzi Karz therapy system focuses on searching for a particular frequency, and then treating the mandibular joint and certain nutrient points within the patient’s body. Each patient needs to go through a process where the therapist that is conducting the bioresonance therapy searches for the most appropriate input and output point for the applicators that is used during the therapy.
Thyroid disorders are a common condition that affect over 20 million adults within the United States. These diseases often causes the immune system to attack the thyroid gland, which then leads to an overactive or an underactive thyroid gland. Bioresonance therapy have recently been proven as an effective option for treating these disorders without causing severe side-effects to develop in the treated patient.
