Natural Thyroid Help
By Dr. Judy Wright, ND, MA, MH, CNHP

From the oceans of Asia, England, and Europe, Bladderwrack is harvested. It is a natural source of iodine, which is an essential nutrient for the Thyroid gland. The function of the Thyroid gland enhances the body's Lipotropic and Thermogenic processes. Bladderwrack was the main source of iodine for over 50 years in the 18th century, and was used to treat goiter. In the 1860's, it was claimed that it could counter obesity by stimulating the Thyroid and increasing the metabolic rate. Is is used for fatigue and convalescence, and as an anti-rheumatic and anti-inflammatory herb. Studies have found it to be helpful in improving skin and mucous membranes. Many therapists have also used the herb for parasite elimination, and even kidney function. It consists of alginic acid, bromine iodine, mannitol, volatile oil, potassium, iodine, and a variety of trace minerals. As a sea plant, this herb contains oxygen obtained from the ocean.

In 1862, Dr. Duchesne-Duparc, while experimenting with Bladderwrack in cases of chronic Psoriasis, found tht weight was reduced without injuring health, and used the Bladderwrack with great success for both purposes. Another doctor, Dr. Godfroy, experimented on himself, losing 5 pounds in a week after taking Bladderwrack before three meals a day. The bromine and iodine stimulated the absorbent glands to increased activity, without causing an atrophied wasting of the glands. Later experiments of Hunt and Seidell indicated that the result of weight loss is brought about by stimulation of the Thyroid gland, and helps reduce goiters. Chemists then made a juice of fresh seaweed and dispensed it for clients with rheumatism, as well as for children with rickets and joint problems, as well as to dimish fat without harm.

During WWII, the French Ministry of War experimented with kelp and other seaweeds with regard to the value of it as food for horses. A batch of "sick"horses were fed the usual ration of oats and fodder, without seeing any difference. The other batch of"sick" horses were fed a diet of seaweed. This trial resulted in the cure of sick horses fed this seaweed, while other fed on oats remained "out of health."

In a study done by Mary J. Shomon, she states that more than thirteen million Americans have a Thyroid problem, especially women, but don't know it yet!

The Thyroid "a butterfly-shaped gland" located in the neck, is the master gland of metabolism. When your Thyroid does not function properly, it can affect every aspect of your health, especially weight, depression, emotions, energy levels, heart disease, irregular heartbeat, hormones, and more.

Mary J. Shomon's study states that hair frequently becomescoarse, dry, beaking, brittle, and falls out easily with a Thyroid wekness. Skin also can become dry, thick, scaly, or fragile. Constipation, diarrhea, or irritablebowel syndrome is associated with hyperthyroidism. Swelling in the neck area can be a sign of hypothryoidism. Muscle/joint problems, even carpal tunnel, can be a sign of thyroid problems. Hormones, menstrual, and fertility problems can be a sign of thyroid problems. Family history of goiter, or gland trouble may be referring to thyroid problems. Fatigue is a big problem with people with thyroid problems. Panic attacks, depression, emotional problems, and anxiety is often a sign of thyroid problems. Weight changes or difficulty losing weight is a sign of hypothroidism.

A needed natural product for the Thyroid, containing Bladderwrack, was developed by native El Pasoan, Dr. Judy Wright, ND, through her company, Ancient Legacy, called "Ocean'sGold."

Other ingredients found in Ocean's Gold, include Sea Kelp, Japanese Seaweed, Spirulina, Dulse, Sea Cucumber, Chlorella, Green and Blue Algae, and CoQ10, plus a few other herbs, known for centries to support the Thyroid gland.

Dr. Wright's Ocean's Gold product contains CoQ10 (Co-Enzyme Q-10), also known as Ubiquinone, a potent natural antioxidant found in good amounts in a healthy body. CoQ10 is very necessary for energy production reaponsible for out life processes. It is a component of every cell in the body, and as the level drops, so does our gneral health status. Low levels can result in many problems, including high lood pessure, heart attack, angina, irregular hearbeat, immunesystem depression, periodontal discease, general lack of energy, and obesity. CoQ10 given to laboratory animals extend their lives greatly.

Seaweed and algae have been known for many years to provide a multitude of other health benefits, also. Seaweed baths in ancient times provided help to many for not only Thyroid problems, but for arthritis, rheumatism, and other joint problems.

Because of so many Americans suffering with varied types of Thyroid probems, this may be a product you might want more information on.
