The Prevention and Treatment of Under-Active Thyroid and Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism or under-active thyroid causes the mind and body to become sluggish. Digestion is poor, cardiovascular function and mental activity slow down, and muscles weaken. Low basal metabolism causes low body temperature, often leaving an individual feeling chilly, with cold hands and feet, much of the time. The vast majority of hypothyroid people have primary hypothyroidism, where the problem lies in the thyroid’s inability to manufacture enough thyroxine (the hormone that sets the metabolic rate of the body) to meet the body’s needs. Sometimes the pituitary gland fails to secrete sufficient TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), which triggers the release of thyroxine hormone: this is "secondary hypothyroidism."
