My thyroid does what?!?!?


As we are starting our New Year, New You campaign we are going to discuss an organ that is involved in regulating many of your body’s functions…the thyroid.

.

According to Bridget Brady MD[1], the thyroid regulates many of the body’s vital functions such as:

  • Breathing

  • Heart rate

  • Body weight

  • Muscle strength

  • Menstrual cycles

  • Cholesterol levels

  • Much more!

With this organ being so crucial to our overall health as well as a key component of achieving our health and lifestyle goals, it is crucial to understand the impact your spine and nervous system have on this organ.

The cells of the thyroid send and receive messages from the spinal cord around the lower areas of your neck and upper back.

When these signals are interfered with our thyroid cannot function properly, and over time the thyroid builds dis-ease rather than health.

Rather than waiting for symptoms to occur, get ahead of your health. Make sure your nerve system is free from interference and give your body the best chance to function optimally.

Call (904)718-6330 to schedule your consultation and exam to see if you can be experiencing life more fully without drugs or surgeries.
