    Zinc Deficiency Symptoms - 9 WARNING Signs That Your Body Needs Zinc!

    Zinc Deficiency Symptoms - 9 WARNING Signs That Your Body Needs Zinc!

    The complete list of zinc deficiency symptoms. If you have these symptoms they are a warning sign that your body needs more zinc!

    Zinc is an incredibly important nutrient and one that plays an important role in many systems in your body.

    Zinc helps to regulate your immune system, it helps to support thyroid function, it helps with hair growth, energy production, and so much more.

    And while overt gross zinc deficiency is not common in the United States, it is common to have what I refer to has a sub optimal zinc level.

    People who have a sub optimal zinc level may experience some minor symptoms of zinc deficiency and feel better when supplementing with zinc.

    You can help identify zinc deficiency based on how you are feeling or your symptoms.

    Learn more about these symptoms in this video.

    What happened to NP Thyroid? Why it was recalled

    What happened to NP Thyroid? Why it was recalled

    NP thyroid was recently recalled at the end of April due to concerns over the potency of this medication. NP thyroid was one of the remaining few NDT brands left after Nature-throid and WP thyroid were pulled off of the market for reasons last year.

    NP thyroid was recalled due to issues in dosing where it was found to be sub potent. Subpotency means that in certain lots NP thyroid was falling below the 10% therapeutic index set for this medication. What this is that some lots of NP thyroid contained much LESS thyroid medication and thyroid hormone than advertised.

    To prevent issues, these lots were voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer.

    The only remaining NDT brand of thyroid medication on the market right now is Armour thyroid. Is this your only option if you were previously using NP thyroid with success?

    Not at all. There are still several options available to you.

    Option #1: You can simply switch to Armour thyroid. Armour thyroid has issues, though, so it may not be the best option for everyone, especially if you've previously used it without success.

    Option #2: You can try to get a compounded desiccated thyroid from a compounding pharmacy. The issue with this option is that many pharmacies are struggling to keep stock right now so this option may not be available to everyone.

    Option #3: You can switch to a combination of synthetic T4 and T3 to replace the combination T4 + T3 in NP thyroid. This would look like a combination of Tirosint + Cytomel/liothyronine/SR T3.

    Between these 3 options you should find something that works for you!

    When will NP thyroid and the other thyroid medications be back? At this time we don't know but I will update you if any further information comes out.

    Synthroid Side Effects EXPLAINED (Including Hair Loss, Weight Gain, Depression & More)

    The complete list of Synthroid side effects including hair loss, weight gain, depression, racing heart, palpitations, and MORE.

    Synthroid is a name brand thyroid medication and frequently used to treat low thyroid function of ANY cause.

    It's not the same as levothyroxine but it is VERY similar.

    Unfortunately, Synthroid, like any medication, carries with it the potential for many different side effects.

    And today we are going to dig into the side effects associated with this medication.

    What may surprise you is that Synthroid is unlike other medications in that it can cause side effects for several different reasons.

    Reason #1. Due to the medication itself OR the binders/fillers/dyes found inside of it.

    Reason #2. Side effects because you are not taking ENOUGH.

    Reason #3. Side effects because you are taking TOO MUCH.

    Learn how to differentiate between these side effects to know whether you need to switch medications entirely or if all you need to do is adjust your dose.

    Using Lasers to Treat Hashimoto's Thyroiditis - Can You Regenerate Thyroid Gland Tissue?

    Using Lasers to Treat Hashimoto's Thyroiditis - Can You Regenerate Thyroid Gland Tissue?

    This video outlines how you can use lasers to treat Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Using lasers may help regenerate thyroid gland tissue.

    Is it possible to regenerate thyroid gland tissue that has been damaged? Well, you can't regrow thyroid gland tissue which is DEAD but you may be able to heal or accelerate the healing process of DAMAGED thyroid gland tissue.

    It turns out that there are certain cold lasers, termed low level light therapy, which may have a beneficial effect on treating Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

    These lasers are COLD lasers which mean that they don't burn your skin. And because the thyroid gland is so close to the skin, it's possible for these lasers to penetrate into the thyroid glad in the neck.

    Some recent studies have shown that LLLT lasers can help reduce inflammation in the thyroid gland, improve thyroid gland size, and more.

    Learn more about using lasers to treat Hashimoto's thyroiditis and how/if you should try this interesting therapy/treatment!
