Complex NSP: Thyroid Harmony
A health check-up package with Nature's Sunshine by Olena Tomei. Prevention is always better and less costly than treatment. Together with a nutritionist who has a medical background, we have developed basic packages for initial assessment of your body's condition in a format that is convenient for you. This complex is aimed at a superficial evaluation of the body's state and will help guide you in the right direction and where to look for the root of the problem.
This complex will show all the dark sides of the unique and irreplaceable thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is one of the most important endocrine glands in the body, producing hormones and controlling body metabolic processes. The cortisol hormone, which is also included in the complex, will help assess the level of stress, which partly depends on the functioning of the thyroid gland.
Disorders of the thyroid gland, such as insufficient (hypothyroidism) or excessive (hyperthyroidism) function, can lead to a wide range of symptoms. Autoimmune diseases of the thyroid gland are very common, when different types of antibodies against thyroid tissue are formed in the body. Without timely diagnosis and treatment, these conditions can lead to serious consequences and the emergence of new disorders in the body.
The following indicators are measured in a comprehensive examination of the thyroid gland:
● TSH - Thyroid-stimulating hormone. TSH is produced in the pituitary gland and regulates the balance of thyroid hormones, including T4 and T3, in the blood. This is the most accurate indicator of thyroid gland activity.
● T4 - Thyroxine is the main hormone produced in your thyroid gland. Thyroxine accounts for about 90% of the total hormones secreted by the thyroid gland. If the thyroid gland is unable to produce the necessary amount of thyroxine or there is insufficient thyroid-stimulating hormone to stimulate it, symptoms of hypothyroidism may appear.
● T3 - triiodothyronine is considered the most biologically active thyroid hormone. Triiodothyronine regulates tissue oxygen consumption rate, stimulates protein synthesis, gluconeogenesis, and glycogenolysis (resulting in increased blood glucose concentration), lipolysis, intestinal motility, enhances catabolism and bile excretion of cholesterol, promotes synthesis of vitamin A and absorption of vitamin B12 in the intestine, bone growth, and sex hormone production.
● Antithyroid peroxidase antibodies (APO) - are produced when a person's immune system mistakenly recognizes thyroid gland tissue as a foreign biological substance, which can lead to thyroiditis, damage to the gland's tissues, and various disorders of its function.
● Cortisol - is a biologically active hormone produced by the adrenal cortex. It actively participates in carbohydrate, lipid, and protein metabolism and affects the body's water-salt balance. Cortisol is also responsible for energy conservation in the body (by forming glycogen reserves in the liver) and participates in the synthesis of cellular enzymes.
In what cases is it prescribed?
For early detection of the most dangerous diseases of the thyroid gland.
This complex allows to exclude or timely diagnose dangerous thyroid gland diseases at asymptomatic stages, since timely diagnosis can help to detect disorders when they are still correctable and significantly reduce the risk of disease development.
