Back to Newsletter

Are you having trouble losing weight? Do you often feel highly emotional? Do you feel tired a lot? Have you had hair loss or do you wake up with a bad case of “brain fog” in the morning? These symptoms and others, in fact 68 symptoms, may relate to your thyroid gland. Take a look at 68 common symptoms below. Thyroid imbalances are typically looked for in blood tests your doctor can do; however, standard thyroid blood tests do not always show the full picture of what is going on in your thyroid.

Also, recently an interesting connection has been found for people with Fibromyalgia. Often there are thyroid imbalances with Fibromyalgia and treating the thyroid often improves Fibromyalgia symptoms.

Your thyroid glad is also highly affected by stress and emotions. There is a clear connection between emotions and thyroid problems.

Your thyroid gland is situated behind the windpipe in your neck and influences the chemistry of your whole body. It produces hormones for growth, cell regeneration, and repair; it maintains both metabolism and oxygen consumption.

Psychological causes or root causes of many thyroid imbalances can be tracked to highly emotional events in your life. The thyroid’s proximity to the voice box is most interesting. Ask yourself this: “How many years have you ‘swallowed’ or ‘stifled’ your words or your needs until you are unable to express yourself?” This is fairly typical for women who easily put others’ needs ahead of their own. In this case, finding your voice and learning to express your thoughts and feelings are vital.

Ask yourself this:

  • Are you able to speak up for yourself?
  • Does your partner make all the decisions?
  • Do you always put other people first, even denying your own needs?

Your body, in this case, thyroid problems, are often a direct reflection of what is going on emotionally inside of you. If you have a thyroid imbalance, there are many solutions and you should consult with your physician. Hypnosis by the way is a powerful tool to help you discover and release the emotional root cause of thyroid issues. We can easily talk directly with your unconscious mind and find out if there is an emotional cause behind the problem.
