Vitamin B12 – The Nutrient Critical to Good Health

Vitamin B12 plays an essential part in our health, and deficiencies can lead to severe issues. But what exactly does B12 do and how common are deficiencies? The answer may surprise you. Known also as Cobalamin, Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that plays a crucial role in nerve function, , cognitive health, the production of red blood cells, and DNA synthesis. Low levels can lead to fatigue, brain fog, hormone imbalance, mental health problems, and physical disability. Severe, longstanding deficiencies left untreated can lead to permanent brain and nerve damage, and even death. Sometimes this is caused by Pernicious Anemia, which is an Autoimmune B12 deficiency, where the body attacks the Intrinsic Factor in the gut necessary for proper absorption of B12. B12 cannot be made by the body and so must come from the foods we eat, or supplementation. In addition, plants do not make B12, only animal products like meat, eggs and dairy which

Do you have low Progesterone?

Progesterone is a critical hormone our bodies require to function well. It is needed for fertility, thyroid health, weight management, and just to feel good in general.

What Causes Reverse T3

What is T3? T3 (Triiodothyronine), is the most active thyroid hormone, that gives you energy throughout the day, and is created by the body’s conversion of T4 (Thyroxine). This is why doctors will often prescribe a T4 only medication (e.g. Levothyroxine) for patients who are hypothyroid, because the T4 will be converted to T3 by the body which in turn alleviates the symptoms of hypothyroidism. However, not everyone’s body works perfectly, and some people do not convert T4 into T3 effectively, and instead create an inactive form of T3, known as Reverse T3 (RT3). High levels of RT3 can cause real issues with the thyroid and energy levels as it actually blocks the T3 that our body needs and relies on to feel good. What Causes Reverse T3? There are many things in life which can cause our bodies to create RT3, however some of the most common causes are stress, inflammation, and very low carb

Thyroid Nodules: Should We be Concerned?

Will delays and Shortages Continue?

The disruption to the world economy from COVID-19 restrictions is set to continue despite the gradual lifting of restrictions in some locations. The effect these restrictions have had (and will continue to have) on the supply of goods is so extreme it is hard to quantify as nothing similar has happened in recent history. It is also reasonable to expect that there will be shortages of many goods we rely on, including supplements and medications. Delays Orders heading outside the US are severely delayed to most destinations, some taking longer than 8 weeks, and there are 111 countries right now that USPS cannot deliver to at all. FedEx is still the most reliable option as they have their own network of planes, but they have also restricted the number of destinations they will deliver to, and increased prices. Shortages Will there be shortages of essential goods? The short answer is yes. The goods that we see

Can taking Thyrovanz affect TSH?

The TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is by far the most common thyroid test and is often used to diagnose hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, or to make decisions regarding thyroid treatment. However TSH results can be affected by a number of things, including taking a natural thyroid glandular like Thyrovanz. The range for TSH is considered normal between 0.4 and 4.0 milliunits per liter (mU/L) depending on the lab used. Levels above this can lead to a diagnosis of hypothyroidism, and levels below this can be an indication of hyperthyroidism. However when taking a natural thyroid glandular like Thyrovanz at optimal levels, TSH will generally become suppressed, i.e below range. The reason for this is that the body is receiving an outside source of thyroid hormones, and this sends a signal to the pituitary gland (which produces TSH) to lower TSH output as there is already enough thyroid in the system. How can I obtain accurate results if TSH

Should You Avoid Gluten? Your Thyroid Says YES!

There are many reasons to be wary of modern gluten, but is going gluten free best for your thyroid? Most of us are aware that people who suffer from celiac disease must avoid gluten as eating it can cause a severe (even fatal) reaction. There is also an increasing awareness of how gluten can affect the thyroid, and those with an auto-immune thyroid disorder. In this article we’ll look at why this is and the benefits of avoiding gluten altogether. Humans have eaten gluten containing foods like wheat, barley, and rye for thousands for years and for the most part it has sustained us pretty well. That is until modern farming and hybridization radically changed the grains we eat into something very different, and made many people sick in the process. Many people experience this as gluten sensitivity and symptoms can range anywhere from a mild stomach upset to chronic inflammation, heart palpitations, and severe

Is Keto Good for Your Thyroid?

In recent years the number of health advocates promoting low carbohydrate and ketogenic diets have exploded, offering simple ways to lose weight, reduce inflammation, and control blood sugar. But are low carb and keto diets good for people who have a thyroid condition like Hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s? The short answer is no, but let’s look at why this is. For a long time, we were told that carbs were good and to avoid saturated fat as this lead to disease. But as saturated fat consumption went down and chronic disease rates skyrocketed, it became clear that the science on this was wrong and consumption of the right fats was actually good for you, and perhaps the over consumption of carbs, especially sugar was more of an issue. While there is a large degree of truth in this, the current trend of cutting almost all carbs from the diet is presenting a new set of problems. Drastically
