As many as 13 million Americans and perhaps 40 percent of women may be misdiagnosed for thyroid conditions or imbalanced thyroid hormones. Although being told this might be better than inappropriate medical treatments, neither help your quality of life.
Research shows that relying on a pituitary hormone to evaluate the condition of the thyroid can be as much as 60% inaccurate.
This one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter approach to your thyroid challenges is truthfully poor medicine. Your pituitary gland, the size of a pea, makes hormones for growth, water retention, to stimulate adrenal gland production of cortisol (also known as the “stress hormone”), development of gender organs, and to coordinate changes during pregnancy and after birth. When something in this huge web of interaction, feedback, coordination and cross-regulation isn’t right, the symptoms can be very diverse, far-reaching and different from person to person.
Responding to TSH, your thyroid makes several thyroid hormones: T4 (thyroxine, and a little T3 or tri-iodothyronine) and releases these into the blood mostly bound to large proteins. These enzymatic conversions, done mostly by the liver, need key minerals—especially selenium and zinc. Lastly, the active T3 needs to make it safely to the cells where it is needed—but high stress and high cortisol—or autoimmune activity—can deactivate the T3. Each and every one of those factors—too much carrier protein that binds the inactive T4 or T3 thyroid hormones, non-functioning enzymes, insufficient vitamins and minerals to allow the enzymes to work, high stress and cortisol, autoimmune processes (and there is one for just about every thyroid hormone step)—all these factors can produce the appearance of an under-working thyroid whether by symptoms or measured by elevated TSH.
That is a lot of steps in feeling normal, a lot of blood work should you choose that route, and a lot of expertise in correct interpretation. In other words, whether you take Synthroid (medical thyroxine-T4) or “bio-identical hormones” (which really aren’t identical) or “natural” thyroid hormone like Armour, there are still many hurdles and steps before you feel better.
In fact, millions of women take thyroid hormone and are being treated by a doctor but still have symptoms, are still in abnormal TSH range and the medical world will just increase the dose.
Unfortunately, if you have had your thyroid tested elsewhere, it was most likely a blood test to measure how much TSH your pituitary is making.
This is why, with Nutrition Response Testing, we look at all organs in relationship to each other.
Rather than give you a drug to control a symptom, or even remove the body part, doesn’t it make sense to find out what is causing it and fix that?

A simple meal-in-a-pan can be as easy as adding some chicken or other meat to the rice while it cooks.
My children have mentioned that when they eat this for breakfast, they don’t get hungry nearly as fast as when they only eat white flour foods.

Having healthy snacks between meals prevents children from reaching out for unhealthy junk food. A healthy snack also increases childrena€™s energy levels for a longer period of time, than sugary snacks do. Choosing healthy snacks between meals increases childrena€™s focus and performance at school as well. Many people with true thyroid problems and obvious thyroid symptoms are told their thyroid is OK when it isn’t. When that organ now does what it is suppose to do, it “answers” with another hormone that says “OK, I did it” in a coordinated feedback loop.
This includes how well your body uses fats and carbohydrates, body temperature and heart rate. TSH is made when the pituitary receives signals from the body that it’s time to increase energy. Assuming the T3 is activated and makes it through the blood to cells, another process that requires certain minerals and vitamins will allow T3 to bind and enter the cell and ultimately deliver its “wake up and get going!” message.
Unfortunately, none of these products fixes the real problem—which step or steps is blocked and why?
Many health problems may be caused by an improperly working thyroid; many health problems can cause a thyroid to work improperly, and many symptoms that appear to be thyroid can be caused elsewhere in this complicated web.
We find and fix the effects of food toxins, heavy metal and chemical toxics, viruses, bacteria, parasites, yeast, and even body scars.
There may be many layers, especially with a thyroid condition, but at the end of your journey you achieve true health.
Bite into an Indian sweet and it can create a spike in your blood glucose levels or results in unhealthy weight gain. Try adding green peppers, summer squash, peas (near end of cooking time for rice), and other treats from the garden. Since they are not distracted by hunger and not feeling well, they are probably doing better on their schoolwork and are easier to get along with.
Eating a healthy snack in between meals helps children keep energy levels consistent and also adds to the intake of essential nutrients.


It also helps with appetite control, as it helps children stick to a moderate amount of food for the next meal.
This is because sugar causes blood sugar to spike and then crash, which leaves children feeling more hungry and tired.
Children are able to understand and retain information presented in the classroom at a higher rate, when their bodies are fuelled consistently, with healthy foods.
A good number of people have healthy thyroids but a screening test is “out of normal range” and the problem lies elsewhere.
According to a recent report from MedCo, a whopping 30 percent of the women aged 35 to 60 who are taking pills to fight depression are doing so because of misdiagnosed hypothyroidism. Many others are put on thyroid medications they don’t need or when there is something else causing an improperly functioning thyroid.
In the world of hormones and hormone-producing organs, “anything can cause anything” has never been more true.

Take your TSH first thing in the morning when you’re waking up and just walked across a cold parking lot to the clinic… it might just be a little high—that would be a normal body response—not a slow thyroid.
