BENEFITS OF MONITORING YOUR THYROID
The function of the thyroid gland can be disturbed very easy, either by producing too much or not enough thyroid hormone, not accumulating it as it should, or secreting the improper levels into the bloodstream. These issues are often overlooked by the conventional doctors. The best thing you can do is to check your thyroid regularly in order to make sure that it is working properly and doing its job in your organism. You can check it by measuring your temperature on daily basis which will also help you to stay in tune with your organism and take the necessary steps when something is not right.

One of the most important roles of the thyroid gland is the regulation of body temperature. Your overall health and your body’s ability to keep a stable temperature reflect on your body temperature after waking up. Dr. Broda Barnes was the one who discovered this fact.
This is a simple way to control your thyroid without suffering the side effects caused by other testing methods. Follow these steps:
- Ready your thermometer before sleeping. Shake it and make sure it shows 35Â°. Leave it near your bed in order to be ready for use in the morning.
- Once you wake up in the morning, place the thermometer under your armpit. Leave it here for the following 10 minutes.
- Take it out after 10 minutes and see what it shows. Write it down. Normally, the temperature should be around 36.5Â° and 36.8Â°. Remember that there could be fluctuations in women who have menstrual cycles.
You may have underactive thyroid gland in case your temperature is lower than 36.5Â°. In case the temperature is higher above 36,8Â°, it could be a sign that your thyroid works too hard.
Measure your temperature three days in a row to see if it is constant.
You can use natural solutions in order to improve your health in case your thyroid gland works too hard. Increase your consummation of vitamin A, selenium and magnesium.
Avoid physical stress to maintain cortisol levels down and make sure you don’t exert your thyroid gland.
