According to the WHO – the World Health Organization, thyroid gland diseases rank second among endocrine disorders behind diabetes only. More than 665 mln people in the world have endemic goiter or suffer from other thyroid gland diseases; 1.5 billion people face the risk of iodine deficiency disorders development. According to the same statistics increase in the number of thyroid gland diseases in the world makes 5% a year.
Such a high incidence of the disease is due to the fact that a large percentage of the population today is in a state of chronic anxiety, while the thyroid gland is an organ that is one of the first to respond to stress.
The thyroid gland (from the Latin glandula thyreoidea) is a ductless (endocrine) gland, accumulating iodine and synthesizing iodine-containing hormones: thyronine (triiodothyronine or T3), thyroxin (tetra-iodthyronine or T4). The gland plays an important role in the endocrine control system of the organism, it is responsible for metabolism normalization and growth of tissues and organism on the whole.
Insufficient amount of the thyroid gland hormones: thyrocalcitonin, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxin (T4) makes the following impossible:
- Normal metabolism.
- Tissues, organs and bone mass growth, maturation.
- Energy nourishing of cells and the organism on the whole.
The thyroid gland is located in the neck and has two parts, connected by the thin band under the throat. The organ is shaped like a butterfly. Lower parts of the thyroid gland lobes are broad and short, while the upper ones are narrow and divergent. In some patients there is the third pyramid-shaped part of the thyroid gland. The organ is located in the neck both in men and women.
The size of the thyroid gland directly depends on individual characteristics of a person. On average, the length of the organ makes 2.5cm-4cm, while its depth makes 1-1.5cm. Average width of the thyroid gland is 0.5cm. The weight of the organ ranges from 12g to 25g. Normally, the thyroid gland volume is no more than 25ml in men and 18ml in women.
There are three hormonal states of the thyroid gland: euthyroidism (normal function of the gland), hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis (increased function of the organ, blood hormones level is over the limit) and hypothyroidism (reduced function of the gland).
Symptoms of the thyroid gland disease are greatly varied and can be exact opposite to each other. It depends on the disorder that has developed in the organ.
Diseases of the thyroid gland, accompanied by thyrotoxicosis and symptoms thereof:
- Graves disease (Basedow disease, diffuse toxic goiter);
- Multinodular toxic goiter;
- Toxic adenoma;
- Acute, subacute, postpartum thyroiditis, hyperthyroid stage of autoimmune thyroiditis.
All these diseases have a common feature – thyrotoxicosis syndrome, i.e. condition caused by increased level of thyroxin and/or triiodothyronine in blood. Metabolism is accelerated due to excessive amount of thyroid gland hormones in the organism. Accelerated metabolism causes symptoms and complaints, which are characteristic for this condition.
Classic signs of thyrotoxicosis: heart pounding, heart rhythm disturbances, arterial hypertension, tremors in the extremities, hyperhidrosis, mood swings, loss of weight, etc.
Diseases of the thyroid gland, accompanied by hypothyroidism, symptoms thereof:
- Primary hypothyroidism;
- Secondary and tertiary hypothyroidism;
- Transient (temporary) hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism is a syndrome, caused by reduced level of thyroxin and/or triiodothyronine in blood, or loss of thyroid gland hormones effect on organs and tissues. In this case metabolism slows down, causing typical symptoms of this disease: brachycardia, weight gain, fatigue, drowse, depression, dryness and paleness of skin, facial swelling, etc.
Can patients with thyroid gland diseases use matrix products? They can and they should. However, sequence of matrix products application depends on the nature of the thyroid gland function impairment, i.e. it depends on if the patient has thyrotoxicosis or hypothyroidism.
In case of diseases, accompanied by thyrotoxicosis, you should never rush to put applicators on the thyroid gland as it may facilitate burst of thyroid gland hormones and cause deterioration of the condition. Given the role of stress in development of the disease, we recommend to start health improvement from Aires-Relax band with Aires Black Crystal or Aires headdress with Aires Black Crystal. Increase time of exposure to the band or the headdress gradually, depending on how the patient feels. It would be useful to simultaneously start drinking structurized Aires AquaCluster Magnet water and to use Ecostep matrix insoles. One – two weeks later you may add Aires matrix applicators according to C scheme, however you should not put them on the neck area. It would be desirable to check the level of thyroid gland hormones during this period. After the patient’s adaptation to the products, if hormones level is low, you may add matrix applicators on the neck area. Then it would be useful to start using fractal glasses with protective optical filters as they have a corrective effect on the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is the main endocrine gland that regulates functioning of all ductless glands, in particular, it generates thyroid stimulating hormone, controlling the thyroid gland functioning. Therapeutic courses should be sufficiently long and should be held according to the following scheme: 42 days – 1-2 week break – 42 days. You may start using Aires Defender Infinity gradually. It is recommended to wear it on the solar plexus projection. You may also start using volume resonators. It is essential not only to achieve, but also to maintain a positive outcome. To do this you need to analyze stress situations, occurring in your life, and to change your attitude to them, i.e. to switch to positive thinking. You are the only one, who can do this, while matrix products are here to help you as all our products facilitate harmonization of a personality.
In case of diseases, accompanied by hypothyroidism, you will also need Aires-Relax band with Aires Black Crystal or Aires headdress with Aires Black Crystal, however, you can simultaneously use matrix applicators according to C scheme, after that it is also recommended to use the products according to the schemes above. Besides, you can put a bandage with 4 or 8 Aires Black Crystal chip applicators on the neck area.
Please, keep in mind that you should not stop taking medications, prescribed by your endocrinologist, when you start using the matrix products. Gradually, you will feel when you can decrease the drug dosage or stop taking it. However, all your actions should be coordinated with the attending physician.
