This video discusses the role of the thyroid gland in the human body, and primarily describes the ways in which a malfunctioning thyroid can influence your body’s systems. Although a thyroid issue may manifest itself most apparently with problems such as depression, low energy, gastrointestinal distress including indigestion, constipation, gas and bloating, the thyroid has a great impact on all of your body’s major systems. This includes the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems. These changes may affect your body’s metabolism, induce cardiovascular challenges, create hormonal imbalances, and more. Additionally, glands such as the adrenal glands, the ovaries, the uterus, the prostate, the breasts, and even the skin, all can be negatively impacted by an unhealthy thyroid. For those wishing to protect their thyroid, Dr. Farley recommends cutting down your body’s exposure to fluoride and bromide.
