Anatomy of the Thyroid
The thyroid gland is situated in the neck at the
base of the throat in front of and on each side of the thyroid cartilage
of the larynx. It has the shape of a butterfly with the two wings being
represented by the left and right lobes. The sole function of the thyroid
is to make a hormone that has an effect on nearly all tissues of the body
where it increases cellular activity. The function of the thyroid
therefore is to regulate the body's metabolism. The thyroid gland
constitutes about 0.5 percent of the total human body weight, but it holds
about 25 percent of the total iodine in the body, which is obtained from
food and water in the diet.
Functions of the Thyroid
The thyroid secretes essential hormones that control
metabolism and the growth and function of almost every organ and system in
the body. The influence of the thyroid is important, as it affects heart
rate, cholesterol levels, body weight, energy level, muscle strength, the
condition of the skin, vision, menstrual regularity, mental state and a
host of other conditions.
If the gland releases too much hormone, the result
is a condition known as hyperthyroidism. If the gland secretes too little
hormone a condition known as hypothyroidism is the result. Symptoms can
appear quickly or may develop slowly.
Low thyroid conditions are epidemic today,
especially among women. Clinical tests often fail to detect
hypothyroidism, even in severe cases. Symptoms include cold hands and
feet, fatigue, constipation, cramps depression, sluggish metabolism, mood
swings, a hoarse voice, forgetfulness, intolerance to cold, weight gain,
fluid retention, low basal temperature, slow pulse, dry/brittle/thinning
hair, dry skin yellowish coloration on skin, and recurrent respiratory
According to a new study by the University of
Colorado, an estimated 13 million Americans may have undiagnosed thyroid
problems. Research shows that low thyroid levels can raise cholesterol
levels, thus raising the threat of a heart attack. It is estimated that
hypothyroidism now exists in as much as 70% of the American population.
Hyperthyroidism is when the thyroid gland becomes
overactive and produces too much thyroid hormone. The signs and symptoms
resulting from an overactive thyroid include: irritability/nervousness,
sleep disturbances, muscle weakness/tremors, irregular menstrual periods,
heat intolerance and weight loss.

have revealed ginseng's ability to support the body's capacity for work.
Some studies also suggest that ginseng may also reduce activation of the
adrenal cortex, the gland that releases hormones in response to stress,
and reduce the negative effects of stress on the thymus gland. It impedes
damage to adrenals and thyroid gland.
