Over the years I’ve had many people ask for natural suggestions to support the normal function of the thyroid. Below you will find a few of the Shawnee Moon products and some Young Living products that I always suggest to do just that.
First, let’s talk a little about the thyroid gland. “Located at the base of the neck, just below the Adam’s apple, the thyroid is the energy gland of the human body. It produces T3 and T4 thyroid hormones that control the body’s metabolism. The thyroid also controls other vital functions such as digestion, circulation, immune function, hormone balance and emotion. The thyroid gland is actually controlled by the pituitary gland which signals the thyroid when to produce thyroid hormone. The pituitary gland, in turn, is directed by chemical signals sent by the hypothalamus gland.” [source Essential Oils Desk Reference]
Thyroid Balance – Shawnee Moon tincture – This is a blend of herbs, put together by the late Victoria Fortner, works to just do just what it’s called. Promote balance and support the thyroid to do what it’s supposed to do; produce proper balance of hormones to help maintain energy, and proper hormone and emotional balance.*
Kelp – Shawnee Moon tincture – A good source of trace minerals such as iodine which can sometimes be deficient in individuals dealing with less than healthy thyroids.* Talk to your doctor about your iodine levels; if it is low, you may also want to watch out for chlorine consumption. Chlorine shuts down thyroid function by preventing absorption of iodine.
Endoflex – Young Living essential oil – EndoFlex™ is a blend of Spearmint, Geranium, and other pure essential oils that support the endocrine system and help maintain overall vitality when taken as a dietary supplement.*
Sulfurzyme – Young Living capsules – Sulfurzyme® combines wolfberry with MSM, a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur needed by our bodies every day to maintain the structure of proteins, protect cells and cell membranes, replenish the connections between cells, and preserve the molecular framework of connective tissue.* MSM also supports the immune system, the liver, circulation, and proper intestinal function and works to scavenge free radicals.* Wolfberries contain minerals and coenzymes that support the assimilation and metabolism of sulfur.
Thyromin – Young Living capsules – Thyromin™ is a special blend of porcine glandular extracts, herbs, amino acids, minerals, and therapeutic-grade essential oils in a perfectly balanced formula that maximizes nutritional support for healthy thyroid function.* The thyroid gland regulates body metabolism, energy, and body temperature.
