Thyroid Health

The thyroid acts as a thermostat for the body, a carburetor if you will. It produces hormones which regulate the metabolism of the body, maintaining balance between the energy using and energy producing systems of the body. If the thyroid is depleted or deficient, the rest of the body functions poorly.

Broda Barnes, M.D.
Home test for thyroid function

Insert a thermometer under the armpit upon awaking and leave there for 8 minutes before reading. Record the reading and repeat the process for 3 more days.

Average the readings (add the readings for all 4 days and divide by 4). Women who are pre-menopausal should conduct this test after your period is over, to insure accuracy.

The ideal range is between 97.8 and 98.2
Readings below this indicate hypothyroidism on a sliding scale:

97.4 possible
96.8 quite possible
96.9 and under - likely
95.0 and under very, very likely

Symptoms: dry skin, feeling cold, high cholesterol, lack of energy, circles under the eyes, moon-face, difficulty in losing weight, -- could be one symptom or a combination.
