Thyroid disease is a common problem that can cause symptoms because of over- or under-function of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is the essential organ for producing thyroid hormones, which maintain are body metabolism. The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck below the Adam's apple. Thyroid disease can also sometimes lead to enlargement of the thyroid gland in the neck, which can cause symptoms that are directly related to the increase in size of the organ (such as difficulty swallowing and discomfort in front of the neck). Thyroid problems are usually easily corrected with conventional medicine. Consult your endocrinologist about using alternative therapies, which aim to cleanse the system, restore immune function, and balance hormone production and release. Problems with the thyroid include overactive thyroid, or hyperthyroidism, and underactive thyroid or hypothyroidism. The thyroid gland in the neck makes hormones to help regulate the body's metabolism and a person's growth. An overactive thyroid can make a person feel nervousness or anxious, be hyperactive and experience unexpected weight loss. An underactive thyroid can make a person feel tired, put on weight and feel depressed. Other thyroid disorders may cause a harmless swelling, or goiter, and thyroid cancer. A naturopath may treat your thyroid condition with homeopathic mixtures, herbs, preparations based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which attributes thyroid disease to emotional distress, and acupuncture. Both methods aim to remove blocks to one's ''life force energy. Cancer of the thyroid gland is quite rare and occurs in fewer than 10% of thyroid nodules. You may have one or more thyroid nodules for several years before they are determined to be cancerous. People who have received radiation treatment to the head and neck earlier in life tend to have a higher than normal propensity for developing thyroid cancer.
