Vitamin D

Vitamin DVitamin D is not a vitamin but instead is a powerful steroidal hormone. Its active form enhances immune cells’ creation of antimicrobial proteins.

The ideal levels in your body should be above 50 ng/ml with an optimal level of 70-80 ng/ml. Sunlight and supplementation are the only significant sources of vitamin D.

Vitamin D deficiency is a significant factor in several conditions that affect a high population in the world:

  • Chronic low back pain, which may be associated with osteomalacia (i.e., softening of the bones due to a lack of vitamin D).
  • Cancer; people living at higher latitudes (e.g., Canada, northern U.S., etc.) have a greater risk of dying from colon cancer than people who live closer to the equator and experienced greater sun exposure. A 2006 review article notes that the majority of studies examining the relationship between vitamin D status and cancer risk show that sufficient vitamin D levels do indeed reduce the risk of cancer and that supplementation is an affordable way to reduce cancer incidence and cancer-related deaths. Vitamin D deficiency may be associated with the following cancers: colorectal, cervical, breast and prostate.
  • Risk of heart disease and hypertension have also been associated with vitamin D deficiency.

 

Get direct sunlight on your body for 15-20 maximum, and then apply the sunscreen. The sunscreen does not allow the Vitamin D to absorb in the body.

Pituitary Gland

pituitary gland

Pituitary Gland

The pituitary gland is termed the “Master Gland” because it directs other organs and endocrine glands, such as the adrenal glands, to suppress or induce hormone production. Pituitary disorders occur when the pituitary gland produces too many or not enough hormones. Hormones are chemicals that are released into the bloodstream. It is important that the body releases normal amounts of hormones because they send messages to cells throughout the body in order to regulate bodily functions, such as growth, metabolism, and sexual development. Many experts consider the pituitary gland to be the most important part of the endocrine system because it secretes hormones that regulate the functions of many other endocrine glands. As a result, patients with pituitary disorders may experience a disruption in many different bodily functions

The pituitary gland is involved in several functions of the body including:

Growth Hormone (GH) Production; which regulates bone and tissue growth. It also helps maintain a healthy balance of muscle and fat tissue in the body.

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH); which signals the thyroid gland to secrete other hormones that regulate the body’s metabolism.

PITIUITARY HEALTH IS IMPERATIVE FOR HORMONE PRODUCTION AND REGULATION

Conditions associated with Pituitary are Acromegaly, Cushing disease and Pituitary tumor.

Hypothyroidism

Thyroid Gland

Thyroid Gland

Hypothyroidism or low thyroid function can be caused by malfunction of another organ system.

Adrenal Fatigue is frequently overlooked and usually the most common cause of secondary low thyroid function, both clinically and sub-clinically. Low adrenal function often leads to low thyroid function. Low free T4, low free T3, high TSH, slow ankle reflex and low body temperature are classic symptoms of Hypothyroidism.

Few physicians are trained to detect this connection. Fortunately, hypothyroidism can be reversed when the underlying root problem (such as adrenal fatigue) is resolved. Those who have hypothyroidism but fail to improve with thyroid replacement medication should therefore always investigate adrenal fatigue as a possible etiology for their thyroid problem. Normalization of the adrenal function in such cases is the key and it often leads to spontaneous resolution of the hypothyroid symptoms. The faster the sufferer of adrenal fatigue recovers, the faster the symptoms of hypothyroidism will be resolved. This can happen in a matter of weeks. Those who are on thyroid replacement will invariably find that less medication is needed as their adrenal function normalizes. In fact, one can become overmedicated and thus run the risk of hyperthyroidism if one’s thyroid medication is not reduced as the adrenal fatigue condition improves. This is an important yardstick and gauge of improvement of one’s adrenal function. The credit goes to the adrenal glands and not the thyroid gland. As the adrenals improve, the need for down-regulation subsides and thyroid function suppression is lifted, leading to normalization of the thyroid function.

Hypothalamus and Pituitary dysfunction can also cause Hypothyroidism. The Hypothalamus sends a neurological message to the Pituitary and the Pituitary sends the message to the Thyroid. If brain function is compromised then Hypothyroidism can be present. Go to a L3W provider and see what organ and gland is reducing the production of Thyroid hormone.
