Weight Loss – No Success – Check This
Many us of tend to gain weight or are overweight and when we try to shed it and dream of a perfect body we either opt to exercise, which is also the best option to go for or try certain remedies, alternative therapies to get the desired results.
But have you imagined, why some people are unsuccessful in shedding weight even after spending days at the gym and trying all effective weight loss remedies?
The answer is simple…
They may be suffering from a thyroid disorder, which is a common condition and most of us ignore its symptoms and gaining weight is one amongst them.
Fortunately, thyroid conditions are treatable. They can be tricky to diagnose since the symptoms tend to be subtle and can easily mimic symptoms of other health issues.
Hyperthyroidism is also known as Overactive Thyroid, occurs when the thyroid gland overproduces thyroid hormones, thus accelerating the body’s natural functions. In contrast, Hypothyroidism is the result of an Underactive Thyroid that is not secreting enough thyroid hormones, which leads to the slowing-down of natural body functions.
Our thyroid plays a huge role in metabolism, it acts as an energy thermostat for the body. If your thyroid is not functioning optimally, it can have serious effects on your health.
Millions of people deal with mysterious weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, brain fog, hot flashes, cold hands and feet, brittle nails, dry skin, restless legs, insomnia, impaired memory, depression, muscle weakness, menopause symptoms, anxiety, dizziness, tingles and numbness, ringing or buzzing in the ears, and aches and pains.
Patients with an underactive thyroid, tend to have a very low basal metabolic rate; One of the most noticeable symptoms of hypothyroidism is weight gain and difficulty losing extra weight.
In order to assess the thyroid’s performance, thyroid tests should be done and if any abnormality is found, it should be treated accordingly.
I suggest, if possible go for natural herbs and supplements and lifestyle changes to cure thyroid disorder rather than opting for hormone drug therapy at the first place, which has its own side-effects.
Even if you are not suffering from a thyroid disorder but have a sluggish thyroid, you can remain to incorporate these supplements into your diet and remain healthy.
