NDtv does the Thyroid: Anatomy, Physiology & Symptoms
Clinical Thyroid imbalance - usually under-activity, or Hypothyroidism - is very common in today's population. And if you consider the sub-clinical or borderline Hypothyroid cases, the commonality skyrockets. It's sometimes tricky to pinpoint because the symptoms can be vague, low-grade, slow-onset, and generalized. But once you identify it as a Thyroid concern and make the necessary changes, patients' health does a 180.
Patients have told me it feels like a switch has been turned ON once their Thyroid regulates with some Naturopathic re-balancing. It is a super important gland to have functioning optimally, because it plays a role in so many central processes of the body like metabolism, body temperature and digestion.
