The Thyroid Receptor Resistance

Ep 58
In this week’s episode, we talk about an aspect of thyroid health that is frequently overlooked, and causes people to suffer as a result. Despite showing classic signs and symptoms, people are told they don’t have thyroid problems and that there is nothing wrong with their thyroid. These people fall through the cracks and suffer from thyroid imbalances that can be managed with the proper diet, lifestyle strategies and nutrients.


What Is Thyroid Receptor Resistance
It is an overlooked problem with the thyroid that affects thyroid hormones. Clients oftentimes have low thyroid function despite having normal blood levels and show signs of inflammation, which can be caused by elevation in Cytokines, Leukotrienes, and Interleukins.

How Toxins Can Affect The Thyroid
Toxins are found everywhere – in the food we eat, the products we use on our skin, and in everyday items we see and use everyday.  These toxins can bind to thyroid receptors, cause damage to cells, and decrease thyroid hormone activity.

Why Testing and Retesting Are Important
It is important to retest clients, using symptom surveys and labs, every few months so that you can monitor symptoms and their progress to better improve and tweak their recommendations depending on their current state.
