Thyroid Hormone, the Missing Ingredient in Fibromyalgia Treatment

Posted by Miss Lizzy

Hi friends,

Even though I know this, I am still amazed by how many health conditions are tied in with thyroid function. And how easy it is to treat them individually as though they are unrelated; asthma, allergies, arthritis, PMS, depression headaches, high cholesterol, hair loss, hormone imbalances, dry skin, and more…

We could easily be on dozens of medicines which only address the result of the problem, but not the problem itself. For many of us, once on proper thyroid treatment these unrelated health problems pretty much disappeared. For me personally, at age 18 I had high cholesterol but now its in a normal range. My allergies and asthma have mostly all disappeared.  You get the idea.

So it’s no surprise to read that some doctors, like Lowe and Mercola, have found a connection between thyroid function and fibromyalgia. In this interview with Dr. Lowe, who is recognized as one of the leading experts on treating thyroid disease with natural medicine, he explains how thyroid hormone regulation may be one of the primary underlying factors in many patients with fibromyalgia. According to the article, Dr. Lowe said conventional thyroid test is typically useless in making a diagnosis (which we know pretty well!) And he recommends treating fibromyalgia with thyroid hormone until the symptoms improve.

    Hey this is a really great post. I had never known that there was any sort of connection between the thyroid function and fibromyalgia. I have been recently looking into clinical trials on chronic pain in Florida. These provide a unique opportunity for people suffering from chronic pain as a result of fibromyalgia. They will be the primary focus of expertly trained physicians which can provide them state of the art care. They may be using a brand new therapy that could work like nothing else ever has for fibromyalgia patients.

    What is the benefit of using iodine?

    According to healthyonline.com, the thyroid (located at the frontal base of the neck) is the key gland that furnishes energy to every cell in the body. Its function is dependent on a balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These include zinc, copper, manganese and especially iodine.

    Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy. In addition, they are beneficial for:

    • Normal growth and development
    • Protein synthesis
    • Cholesterol synthesis
    • Carbohydrate absorption
    • Energy metabolism
    • Nerve and bone formation
    • Reproduction
    • The condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth
    • Speech and mental state
    • Cold hands and feet
