How HGH May Improve Thyroid Function
By Lisa Wells, RN
Dr. Ronald Klatz states in his book Grow Young With HGH that human growth hormone affects every organ system of the body, and almost nothing escapes its magical touch."
Jens Sandahl Christiansen of the Aarthus Kommunehospital of Denmark stated in a report:
"Untreated human growth hormone deficient adults have been shown to have a wide range of conditions, including abnormal thyroid hormone metabolism".
Body composition has also been found to be abnormal with increased fat mass, decreased lean body mass, decreased muscle fat ratio, visceral obesity, reduced extracellular fluid volume, and reduced bone mineral content.
Improving the body's release and use of human growth hormone has been found to help improve the function of the organs and glands in the body and help to stabilize other hormones, and this includes the thyroid gland and the thyroid hormones. Many patients who undergo successful HGH therapy see improvements in their thyroid function also.
Taking HGH With Thyroid Conditions
First of all, everyone with a thyroid condition should consult their private physician before beginning any type of HGH therapy and should always follow their doctor's advice.
It is usually recommended that patients not begin any type of human growth hormone therapy if they have a thyroid issue that is not being addressed successfully. If you have hypothyroidism but you are not receiving proper treatment, or if you are taking a thyroid replacement therapy such as T4 medications (Levothyroxine) but you are still having symptoms, then the medication you are taking may not be converting properly and/or getting into your cells. This may possibly be due to your body's inability to convert the storage T4 into active T3. You could also have a high reverse T3 level that is clogging your cell receptors.
No matter the cause, if you are still in a hypothyroid state at the cellular level your body is going to be stressed and your metabolism will probably be slower than normal. Taking the HGH injections during this time may cause more stress to your thyroid gland because growth hormone is known to increase metabolism and requires the body to do more work in order to provide healing benefits.
If you have hyperthyroidism that is not under control then your metabolism is already too high, taking an HGH product while you are in a hyperthyroid state may increase your metabolism even more.
Once you are taking a successful thyroid therapy that is the time to consider starting an HGH therapy that may help to heal your thyroid gland and improve its function.
When Beginning HGH Therapy
When beginning either of our HGH products your doctor should always be involved. Clients with thyroid issues should pay close attention to their body. They should have their thyroid levels monitored while taking the product. The reason for this is because the product may improve the function of the thyroid gland. If this happens their thyroid hormone levels may also improve and so the need for medication may decrease.
The thyroid levels of thyroid patients should be checked before beginning the product and after taking the product for the first 8-12 weeks, or immediately if the client notices any symptoms of hyperthyroidism. The client's private physician should decide if and when the thyroid medication should be decreased.
How Our HGH Plus IGF-1 Product Affected One Client
When taking our products usually the improvements are smooth and easy. However, we have had one case reported where our HGH Plus IGF-1 product caused the thyroid gland to improve its function dramatically during the first 6 weeks of therapy.
This particular client had heard about our product from one of our other clients. She phoned and spoke with me personally. I asked her if she had any health problems and she explained that her thyroid gland had been damaged 9 years earlier as a result of cancer treatment. Since that time she had needed large doses of thyroid medication. During the 9 years she had taken the thyroid medication her thyroid gland seemed to not be functioning and her thyroid levels had never become high.
She is also a nurse so we spoke at length. Because our product is homeopathic we both thought her doctor might not take it seriously, even so, I stressed to her the importance of consulting her doctor and having him closely monitor her levels while taking the product.
I told her about our other clients who have seen their conditions improve to the point where their doctor's discontinued their medication. Even though her thyroid gland had not functioned in 9 years I told her there was still the possibility that it would help. If this happened, her medication might need to be decreased. She agreed and placed her order.
After taking the product for few weeks she could feel the product working so she decreased her medication slightly herself while waiting for her appointment with her doctor. Unfortunately her appointment was canceled due to an emergency her doctor was called to, and was rescheduled to a later date.
While awaiting her rescheduled doctor's appointment she continued to take her thyroid medication and take our product. She was very sensitive to our homeopathic formula and so after 6 weeks of taking both her thyroid hormone level became high. She was hospitalized for treatment of hyperthyroidism. Her doctors were astounded that our product had actually caused her thyroid gland to begin functioning again.
Of course her doctor stopped her thyroid medication and also stopped our product at that time. She was discharged from the hospital after a few days. One doctor was impressed with our product, while her general doctor was baffled that he could not explain what happened. He was not ready to accept the fact that a homeopathic HGH product could improve her thyroid function. This client stated that she knows it did help and it helped her in other ways also. She said she would like to resume the product in the future. We both agreed that she would definitely need to take only partial doses because she is so sensitive.
I am sharing this story because I want everyone who is interested in homeopathic human growth hormone to take it seriously. I don't want what happened to this client to happen to anyone else. So, although your doctor may tell you that you will be wasting your money because homeopathy doesn't work, please know that it has been around for over 200 years, and is now the 2nd most popular type of health therapy because it can work.
