I Have a Butterfly in My
Throat!

(or What is the Thyroid?)

We will begin by looking at the purpose of the thyroid in
order to understand its function in the body. The thyroid is a part of the
endocrine system. This entire system, and its organs and glands, is responsible
for the release of hormones into the blood stream which are then distributed to
cells and organs through the circulatory system. The thyroid is a small gland
located in the front of your neck. Owing to its distinct shape, it is often
referred to as the butterfly organ. It is made up of a variety of cells that
have specific functions.

Despite its small size, the thyroid is larger than all the
glands in the neck and it is one of the most important organs in the body. It
is responsible for keeping a person’s metabolism functioning optimally and produces
hormones that regulate your body’s metabolism. To function properly, the
thyroid requires a number of processes to be in balance. If these processes and
the hormones secreted from the thyroid are not in balance it can set off
complications and your body will respond by trying to compensate for the
imbalances.

How the
Thyroid Functions

The thyroid gland and its hormones serve many different
purposes in the body. The following are merely some of the functions of the
thyroid gland and as you will see, it is one of the most hard working glands in
the body and responsible for the maintenance of overall good health. However,
an issue in the thyroid gland can lead to the development of other health
issues, which will be discussed
in the next chapter.

First, the boring (or fascinating, for the nerds, like me)
scientific stuff…

The thyroid gland regulates production and release of
thyroid hormones known as T1 (monoidothyronine), T2 (3,5-Diiodo-L-thyronine),
T3 (Triiodothyronine), T4 (Thyroxine), and rT3 (Reverse Triiodothyronine).
These are hormones that affect metabolism and determine how fast, or slow, your
organs function including heart, brain, liver, kidneys and the digestive system.
The T1 and T2 hormones are lesser known because it is still unclear what their
true role is in the metabolism. This does not mean they are not important, but
because there is not much known about them we will not focus on these in this
book.

The T3 hormone is instrumental in raising your basal
metabolic rate, as well as the consumption and use of energy and oxygen. T3 also
helps with weight loss and produces serotonin in the brain (who doesn’t want more of that “happiness
serum”?). It also helps in maintaining a normal or ideal body temperature, with
the regulating of menstrual cycles and your changing hormones, in controlling
normal brain activity and enhancing the functions of the central and peripheral
nervous system.

The thyroid secretes the hormone called T4. Even though
more T4 is produced (called T4 because each of its molecules contains 4 iodine
atoms), the hormone called T3 (big surprise: T3 has 3 iodine atoms per
molecule!) happens to be the most active hormone in the body as most T4 is not
active and has to be converted into T3 through the bloodstream, liver or
kidneys. Problems occur when T4 has difficulty being converted to T3 or when
the hormones are not free, meaning they are bound to a protein in the
bloodstream called thyroid binding globulin (TGB).

The hypothalamus stimulates the pituitary gland (both found
in the brain) with its hormone thyrotrophine-releasing hormone (TRH), which
instructs the pituitary gland to release the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
or thyrotrophine. As you may be able to tell from its name, the TSH controls,
i.e. stimulates, the thyroid and tells it how much or how little of its hormone
it should release.

A certain type of enzymes is also involved in converting
T4 to T3. These are called enzyme 5’ deiodinases and they remove iodine from
the hormone and help turn the thyroid
hormones “on and off” and basically control and balance the hormones by
controlling how much iodine is in each one. There are three different
types, simply called D1, D2, and D3 and they are found in different parts of
the body. The basic thing you need
to know about these is that they are required for the essential
conversion of T4 to T3 and there are number of causes that will impact whether
they are producing properly. A few of those causes are, heavy metal toxicity,
inflammation, a vast amount of cortisol, selenium deficiency and stress. D2
works in the pituitary gland and regulates the gland’s T3 levels and has been
said to be a thousand times more efficient in converting T4 to T3 than D1 of
which a very small amount is located in the pituitary gland. D2 also reacts in
a contrary way than D1 and D3 to stress, inflammation and the other causes of
poor conversion mentioned above. Therefore, if a doctor relies only on a test
that determines the levels of TSH to treat your symptoms, be skeptical.

The thyroid requires iodine, zinc, B vitamins, selenium
and many other factors to function optimally. But, it is important to have a
very thorough test done of all of your hormones in order to determine what is
truly causing poor thyroid functioning. The good news is that eating a balanced
diet, exercising and using a therapeutic essential oil regimen will go a long
way in finding relief and healing. This will be discussed in the coming
chapters, but first we will talk about the resulting diseases caused by poor
thyroid function.
