What is "Graves'" disease and how can we heal it?
Yesterday we spoke of the "thyroid" and the reason I believe it becomes impairs. So today we're going to break it down a little more into categories. And first up . . . "Hyperthyroidism".
"Graves' disease" is an autoimmune disorder that causes "Hyperthyroidism" which is an "overactive" thyroid. As I stated yesterday . . . this disease causes the immune system to attack the thyroid, which causes it to make "too" many thyroid hormones.
Again . . . we're talking about "miscommunication" within the body's function.
"Graves' disease" affects more women than men and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. About 1.2% of the population in the United States has "hyperthyroidism". Which is a little more than 1 in every 100 people. So why do so many of us have this disease?
Well . . . first let's talk about what are some of the symptoms. And that would be bulging eyes, weight loss, a "fast" metabolism, anxiety, irritability, fine tremors in the hands or fingers, "heat" sensitivity and an increase in perspiration or warm moist skin.
Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland produces "too" much of the hormone "thyroxine".
Now . . . scientists state that they "do not" know the exact cause of Graves' disease. However, they do know that somehow the body's immune system it tricked into targeting receptors on the thyroid gland causing "hyperthyroidism". And that Graves' disease may be caused by a combination of genetic and "environmental" factors.
Okay . . . as I said yesterday . . . science is trying to make this too scientific, therefore they don't have any answers for us.
As I've been saying . . . like . . . forever . . . we need to go back to basics and the beginning. Going back to mother nature on all levels. We need to learn about and correct the "mechanics" of the human body for optimal health.
Treating Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism is all about eliminating the reason there's "miscommunication" in the body in the first place. This way the "environmental" factors that science talks about . . .doesn't cause the body's immune system to target the thyroid gland and produce too much "thyroxine" hormone.
