What is the Thyroid?
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits on top of the trachea in the neck. It may be small, but it has a big part in the endocrine system and, ultimately, in overall health throughout the body. The endocrine system is the network of glands within the body that produces hormones, and the thyroid’s primary role is in the production of T3 (triiodothyromine) and T4 (thyroxine) hormones, which is stimulated by the release of thyroid stimulating hormones (TSH) from the pituitary gland in the bran.
The hormones created by the thyroid work to regulate metabolism in all cells in the body. This makes the thyroid a crucial part of overall health. Folk wellness practices understood the importance of thyroid health since ancient times—Chinese practices as far back as 1600 B.C. and Ayurvedic practices as far back as 1500 B.C. both had elements focusing on the health of the thyroid.
