An elderly man with serious health issues went for a medical advice to Dr. Erika Schwartz. Namely, she look at the medications and the treatments that he was exposed to, and decided to refer to his cardiologist if he would agree to change his therapy completely.
To be exact, the man suffered from low testosterone and thyroid levels, excess weight, sleeping disorders due to an advanced stage of eczema which caused insupportable itching.
After three weeks of unsuccessful overtures to contact his cardiologist, shefinallysucceeded. However, when she suggested the elimination of the medications which were the reason for the eczema of the patient, she says:
“The guy said to me, ‘I can’t talk to you. You don’t know science.” Stating that both of them have the same medical degree, she adds “he hung up on me!”
Consequently, after this conversation, Dr.Schwartz explained everything to her patient. Then he decided to change his cardiologist and go for the plan she proposed. The treatments she was planning to do consisted of eliminating the medication for his cholesterolandboosting the level of the thyroid hormones.
First, the patient believed that this treatment would cause a heart attack, but Dr. Erika Schwartz explained that if they correct the hormones they will naturally maintain the lowlevel of the cholesterol.
Thyroid hormones are anoutcome of the function of the thyroid gland—that is an endocrine gland in the form of a butterfly that can be found in the lower front of the neck. The two thyroid hormones, thyroxine andtriiodothyronine, are also known as T4andT3. T4 is turned into the active T3 in cells, and through the bloodstreamit reaches the body organs.
The main function of these hormones is to provide energyandregulate the metabolism, but it also has a importantinfluence on the whole body, because it assists to the organs to function optimally.
The most common issue connected to the thyroid is hypothyroidism. That is the state of underactive thyroid, that is when the gland does not produce enough hormones to regulate the necessary body functions.
This can be a result of many internal and external factors, such as Hashimoto’s disease, which is an autoimmune condition when the thyroid is attacked by the immune system.
Hypothyroidism can be manifested by several symptoms, including dry skin, brittle nails, hair loss, fatigue, weight gain, body temperature irregularities, poor reflexes, depression, feeling cold, brain fog, mood swings etc.
