Brain Fog and the Thyroid

Dr. Motley - Brain FogBrain Fog and the Thyroid

The thyroid is responsible for energy production. It tells all the other cells in the body to create ATP, the energy molecule. Anything that changes the function or shape of the thyroid can cause energy loss.

The triple warmer is the meridian that energizes and strengthens the thyroid, adrenals, and reproductive organs. This meridian pathway runs from the corner of the eye, around the temples, and down the neck and arms. The meridian feeds energy to the muscles, blood vessels, joints, LYMPH NODES, etc. that run alongside the pathway. This increases the function and efficiency of all the tissue involved.

Remember it is important for the lymph nodes in the body to drain toxins so they won’t build up in the brain or in the gut. Lymph does two things:
  1. Drains toxins
  2. Delivers immune cells to kill pathogens
ANY toxin that the body cannot metabolize can build up in the brain or gut and create brain fog! The thyroid has to work hard to create energy to help the rest of the body detox these toxins. If years of toxicity and genetic weakness occur in the thyroid, there is slow movement or no movement of toxicity within the head = BRAIN FOG!

Here is a list of thyroid conditions and tests that can help you find A link with brain fog.
  • Hashimoto’s = TPO BLOOD TEST
  • Graves’ disease = enlarged thyroid
  • Hypo or hyperthyroidism = T3 and T4 (free forms) blood tests
  • Iodine levels- be careful when taking iodine, get sensitivity testing done to see if you can metabolize it
Additionally the Large Intestine and Stomach Meridians run along the thyroid. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, whatever you eat affects the thyroid, and can create weakness in the head, neck and shoulders.

Nutrients that help build the thyroid:
  1. Iodine
  2. Zinc
  3. Vitamin A
  4. Chromium
  5. Selenium 
  6. B2-Riboflavin 5 Phosphate
  7. B6 and B12

Please research these supplements and find the ones that work for you! You can get your cells tested for nutrient deficiency withSPECTRA-CELL if you want to go even further.

Also, get acupuncture regularly on the triple warmer points to help build the strength of the thyroid. I have seen this work so well on patients with brain fog. I hope this helps, have a great day! #motify #makehealthgreatagain

SIDE NOTE:
Scientists are now stating that research is showing evidence of lymph vessels in the brain. This discovery may link toxicity with neurological conditions like Alzheimer, MS, Parkinson’s etc. Check this research!
