What is the Thyroid?

Located at the base of your neck along the windpipe is a small

butterfly shaped gland, known as the Thyroid gland. It is a very

important part of the endocrine system and produces two

hormones, namely thyroxine (T3) and triiodothyronine (T4).

These hormones regulate the speed of body cells and also

control various metabolisms of the body.

What causes Thyroid Imbalances?

Thyroid Imbalance can be caused due to a variety of factors:

Liver Toxicity – Our body gets toxic substances from the food we

eat, drinking water and from the environment. The liver is

responsible for detoxing the body. At times, the liver does not

function properly and is unable to eliminate all the toxins from

the body. This leads to increases in the amount of toxins in the

body and causes hormonal imbalances. One of the most common

signs of toxicity is the presence of bags under the person’s eyes.


Thyroid Imbalance can be caused due to a variety of factors:

Stress and Tiredness – Stress, anxiety and tiredness affect the working of

the thyroid gland. When a person is overtired or is unable to get enough

sleep, the hormonal balance of the body goes out the window. At least 6-

8 hours of sound sleep is essential for the body to prepare itself for a

new day. Adequate amount of sleep is essential for the body to

rejuvenate itself and for the cells and tissues of the body to get repaired

and replaced. When a person is stressed, the production of Cortisol

hormone is increased in the body. Increased levels of cortisol puts you at

an increased risk of high blood pressure, coronary heart disease and

dysfunctioning of the immune system.


Thyroid Imbalance can be caused due to a variety of factors:

Constipation and Food Intolerances – Constipation is a much

deeper problem than what many of us perceive. Not only does it

cause pain during bowel movements; it also leads to hormonal

imbalances in the body. Improper functioning of the digestive

system and food intolerances are also a leading cause of hormonal

imbalances. Research has shown that people who suffer from food

intolerances, especially gluten intolerance, usually do suffer from

hormonal imbalances as well.


Some other causes of hormonal imbalances include medicines

that play around with the normal hormonal composition of the

body such as contraceptives and medications to induce hair

growth. Medications taken during pregnancy also cause hormonal

imbalances. Hormonal replacement therapy also causes hormonal

imbalances since estrogen is given to the person as a medication.
