Thyroid problems in women


I have noticed that more and more women then men would come into our office with thyroid problems. I have read, never the research that explains this to my satisfaction. However, I now feel that I have discovered why this is so.

A woman’s voice and her thyroid hormones are affected by factors that are not affected in a man. This distinction can sometimes make the difference. It is also a commitment that has often been overlooked until recently observed by myself and a handful of other researchers.


In the course of the investigation of thyroid problems in 1996, we have discovered that it involved a lot of nutrients in the proper function of the thyroid. Some of these nutrients were never used or recognized in general as part of the thyroid gland. Many of these nutrients are minerals, enzymes, hormones work properly, contributing to this.

We have also confirmed that many people with inadequate thyroid function had normal blood test results.This is because the problem was in the cells and not in the blood. Both doctors Broda Barnes and Denis Wilson have reported in their respective pounds that was under the armpit temperature in the morning is the most reliable clue. We have found that temperatures were accompanied by low below 97.8 thyroid symptoms.

If the thyroid was found in our original protocol of amino acids, vitamins and minerals and proteins, a significant improvement in general symptoms and body temperature.However, I felt that something was missing. I was not sure what, but I knew I was not the whole answer.


Then I started on the cell progesterone in women with a new test to examine more closely. We found that all of our low thyroid women had very low levels of progesterone, while it is normal that a high level of estrogen. Most had their progesterone readings in post-menopausal range, but they were still menstruating.

We began to give them Progesterone cream to rub on the skin. This is a natural cream containing herbs, which contains the body in a position to changes in progesterone.
