The thyroid gland, an endocrine butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck, below the Adam’s apple, is an extremely important one.
The thyroid gland releases two hormones which have an influence on the entire metabolism.
It releases thyroxin, which affects almost all of the body systems, as well as triiodothyronine, which affects the physiological process in the body like growth, heart rate, body temperature, and metabolism.
There are two different kinds of thyroid disorders:
Hyperthyroidism, which is the condition of overactivity of the thyroid gland and thus the presence of excessive levels of thyroid hormones. These are the most common symptoms:
- Increased heart rate
- Changed bowel habits
- Anxiety and irritability
- Menstrual problems
- Feeling hot
- Weight loss
- Sleeping difficulties
- Difficulty focusing on one task
- Racing thoughts
Hypothyroidism is a condition of reduces activity of the thyroid gland, which causes a lack of the thyroid hormone, and these are the most common symptoms:
- Muscle cramps
- Brittle nails
- Weight gain
- Dry skin and hair
- Reduced menstrual flow
- Swelling in the front part of the neck
Yet, there is an entirely natural remedy that can regulate the function of the thyroid and maintain its activity at an optimal level. If the malfunction of this gland is caused by iodine deficiency, which is one of the main causes, this natural remedy can be of great help:
- 40 pieces of young green walnuts
- 1kg organic honey
You should initially clean the walnuts, dry them, and use a needle to prick them. Then, place them in a jar, fill it with honey, and leave the jar at a place exposed to sunlight. Leave it there for 40 days, and then store the remedy in a glass bottle.
You should take 2 tablespoons of this remedy every morning and every evening.
