You obviously understand that the thyroid gland plays a very big role in your overall well being and health if you have been diagnosed with a thyroid condition. Actually, the thyroid gland is the producer of two very important hormones in your body: triiodothyronine and thyroxin. The inadequate or excess production of these two hormones is why people with such problems are seeking natural healing methods to cure their problems in a safe but effective way.
Besides stimulating metabolism, the hormones produced created by the thyroid gland also play a role in boosting the energy of the body, stabilize body temperature, and assists the other organs to function normally, whilst promoting normal development and growth.
One very important element in the creation of the thyroid hormones is iodine, which in the end implies, iodine is indispensible for metabolism. A person suffers from the condition known as hypothyroidism when his/her body fails to produce enough thyroid hormones (TH is usually associated with the metabolic hormone of the body). On the other hand, when the body is producing too much of the hormone, hyperthyroidism sets in.
We can take comfort in the fact that iodine is found in abundance in certain foods, (ground beef, water, milk, iodized salt, and seaweed) as well as in drugs and dietary supplements. Iodine can also be found in bladder wrack and in some Chinese herbal remedies. However, the body also needs selenium in order to use iodine properly. You can have all the required amounts of selenium by eating each day just a couple or three Brazil nuts; selenium can also be bought as a supplement. It may seem that a natural remedy for thyroid conditions does exist after all; in fact, there are several options available!
