Are Your Thyroid Levels Low?

When a police officer conducts a sobriety test, he’s not practicing medicine. This is in spite of the fact that he performs a neurological exam and makes a “diagnosis” based on his findings. Why is this not practicing medicine?

An excess of certain chemicals in the body manifests outwardly. Poor balance, slurred speech, droopy eyelids, dilated pupils, certain odors, bloodshot eyes, and erratic driving are all clues to a chemical being in excess inside the body. Not rocket science to figure it out.

Similarly, if there are deficiencies of hormones or nutrients in the body, this is reflected outwardly. If thyroid hormone is not adequate, the signs are as blatant as they are if someone is under the influence of a drug. Thyroid hormone allows us to produce energy. As thyroid levels fall, the body does not have the energy for self-healing. The integrity of hair/skin/nails decline. As glucose is not burned for energy, blood sugar rises. This is reflected by skin tags and tiny red moles (cherry hemangiomas). Excess blood sugar and cooler body temps from low thyroid allows critter overgrowth, especially Candida yeast (Thrush/jock itch/vaginal yeast/diaper rash). This Candida overgrowth can manifest as a variety of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Hair loss from scalp and eyebrows indicates low thyroid levels. Candida overgrowth in the thyroid gland itself can cause neck swelling. Skin gets rough and dry (hyperkeratosis), especially at heels, knees, elbows, and knuckles. The tongue swells and presses against the teeth creating “scalloping” along the edges of the tongue. As thyroid levels go down, you produce more insulin in an effort to control blood sugar. This increase in insulin makes you store more belly fat. Sooooooo, if you’re intelligent enough to tell if someone is drunk, you can tell if they are hypothyroid.
