Further to my blog of Dec. 28, 2013 Balancing Adrenals and Thyroid, I now realize that the thyroid needs at least nine minerals for proper function.
Decades ago I thought it was only iodine. Then years ago I found out that selenium is also necessary. And when I wrote the first version of Invisible Minerals: Part II – Multiple Minerals about ReMyte, I found 6 minerals involved with thyroid hormone production. Now the total is up to 9 and there may be more. That why, besides ReMyte (which contains 12 minerals including 9 for the thyroid) I recommend that everyone take sea salt in their drinking water to get the wee bits of 72 minerals that the sea and the earth provide. (Sea Salt: ¼ tsp in every pint of drinking water.)
Below is an overview of the 9 thyroid minerals. All this information is in the free ReMyte Book at RnA ReSet in the FAQ section where it is called Invisible Minerals Part II. You may be like me when you see a list of things that nutrients can do and you just think “prove it.” But what I know about ReMyte is that the enhanced absorption of picometer minerals (due to their size) makes them truly functional and therapeutic. Whereas dirt minerals may be 4-20% absorbed, picometer minerals reach 100% absorption.
As I say in my blog and the ReMyte book, medicine treats hypothyroidism with hormone replacement therapy with patients fighting to get a prescription of natural hormones from their doctor. However, the real crux of the matter is the building-block minerals that your thyroid needs to make perfect thyroid cells. This perfection can also be enhanced with RnA Drops and ReAline.
Iodine: T3 has 3 iodine molecules; T4 has 4. So it’s safe to say that the thyroid can’t function without iodine. T4 or (thyroxine) is 68 percent iodine by weight, and T3 (triiodothyronine) is 58 percent.
Selenium: A necessary cofactor in the production of thyroxine (T4), It also converts T4 to the more active form, T3. A total 11 selenium-dependent enzymes have been identified as necessary for thyroid function and thyroid hormone production. If you take iodine without selenium, you can cause selenium deficiency. If you take selenium without iodine, you can cause iodine deficiency.
Zinc: Required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Zinc deficiency can result in hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormones are essential for the absorption of zinc. The hair loss attributed to hypothyroidism may not improve with thyroid hormone replacement unless zinc supplements are added.
Molybdenum: Molybdenum-dependent enzymes function in the oxidative system of thyrocytes (thyroid epithelial cells). They also play an important role in T3 (thyroglobulin) release from the thyroid gland.
Boron: Helps the conversion of the storage form of thyroid hormone, T4, to T3, the active form.
Copper: Plays an important role in the metabolism of the amino acid tyrosine, which is a precursor to T4 (thyroxine).
Chromium: Enhances insulin activity playing a major role in the regulation of insulin release and its effects on carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism. Conversion of T4 to T3 is influenced by insulin, so in a roundabout way, chromium helps this conversion.
Manganese: Required to transport the hormone thyroxine into our cells.
Magnesium: Calcium and magnesium must be balanced in the body to ensure proper thyroid function. If there is too much calcium, thyroid hormones can become diminished. Magnesium is the regulator of calcium absorption and utilization.
Please read Balancing Adrenals and Thyroid, to get the full picture of the intricate dance among your thyroid, adrenals and sex hormones. Then take the simple but necessary steps that I outline to ensure they are balanced. If you don’t do this yourself, you can be sure nobody else will because doctors never learned about minerals in medical school and what they don’t know they vehemently deny.
