Are You Listening to Your Thyroid Gland ? It may be small but it is powerful and controls nearly every aspect of our health. The butterfly-shaped gland produces thyroid hormone (TH), which is responsible for keeping your metabolism, heartbeat, temperature, mood, and more, in check.  Basically, your overall health.

This podcast on Dr. Karen Health Talks reviews signs of whether your thyroid is working well and how to keep it healthy and functioning.

SIX ways you can “invest in your Thyroid Health …

 

  1. Keep your iodine consumption consistent by eating leaky greens vegetables
  2. Be sure to get enough selenium and zinc
  3. Eat enough protein as certain amino acids are involved in thyroid hormone production
  4. B Vitamins interact with thyroid regulation
  5. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with low thyroid
