The thyroid gland (Latin: glandula thyreoidea) located on the front of the neck is the gland responsible for the running of the entire body. Thyroid gland works with the aid of thyroid hormones (especially thyroxine and triiodothyronine), which regulate the intensity of metabolism while also affecting the active functioning of many systems in the human body. These hormones are formed from organic iodine converted from its inorganic form. This is due to the complex enzymatic processes of the thyroid gland. A part of this active formation of these hormones is the production of iodine molecules from the blood.
For the proper functioning of each cell in our body, the thyroid gland together with its hormones is absolutely essential. This process can be compared to a class full of pupils in which a teacher (thyroid hormone) is present. If the teacher is not present in the classroom, there is chaos, a cry, and so on.
Thyroid gland disorder (thyroid hormone deficiency) allows for full-scale civilization diseases such as osteopenia, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue, cardiovascular diseases (myocardial infarction, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.), female diseases (cysts on the ovaries, uterus, breasts etc.), noninfectious prostate inflammation in men and many more.
Thyroid disorder often causes not only a problem with conception, healthy physical and mental development of the fetus, but might also cause problems for women during pregnancy, during birth and breastfeeding (hair loss, dental decay, bone loss, fatigue, malaise, pressure fluctuations, psychological problems which may also be due to improper thyroid function).
The most common disorders associated with this gland are hyperthyroidism (too active thyroid gland) and hypothyroidism (insufficiently active thyroid gland). In some areas of the world with lack of iodine in the diet, the thyroid gland can be greatly enlarged, this results in the swelling of the throat. This disease has been known as an endemic goitre.
Each thyroid disorder causes a general weakening of the body. The normalization of its function can usually be recovered by using Fortuna Vitae – the original prof. Turianica with active organically bound iodine. Fortuna Vitae is a unique tool for protection, prevention of thyroid gland and its overall regeneration.
