Thyroid conditions, which have a profound impact on everyday life regardless of severity, are among the most under-explored ailments plaguing people in the world today.
An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease. Up to 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. Women are five to eight times more likely than men to have thyroid-related problems.
The thyroid gland plays a huge role in our body, influencing the function of many of the body’s most important organs, Ensuring that the thyroid gland is healthy and functioning properly is vitally important to the body’s overall well-being. Alterations in spinal structure can often be a cause or contributing factor to thyroid-related issues. With few exceptions, hormone deficiency or hormone excess is the result of pathologic manifestations in the neural pathways that supply the hypothalamus.
Studies have shown that fifty percent of hyperthyroid patients have damage to the pathways in their nervous system. The metabolic responses to spinal cord stress involve every organ and tissue of the body and conditions of traumatic stress will be associated with changes in serum thyroid. Spinal cord trauma produces a major alteration in thyroid function.
