Hypothyroidism is a condition of the thyroid


Published on Glands.

The thyroid is located in the lower neck under the larynx (this is where the chakra of the throat is located, for those who work with chakras). It produces thyroxine, which has a stimulating effect on the body. Thyroxine helps the body tissues consume oxygen. The thyroid regulates the use of oxygen, the metabolism of cells and the development of human beings. It plays a relevant role in metabolising calcium, fats and carbohydrates (metabolism is the group of chemical reactions through which the body assimilates what it needs and gets rid of what it does not).

The thyroid accelerates all metabolisms. It is responsible for the body’s entire internal performance. It acts as our accelerator.

The person who suffers from hyperthyroidism (goiter) is someone who cannot express himself with the right person at the right time. He cannot confront the other person. He cannot express himself when he should and is convinced that other people do not understand him. Accordingly, he turns into a person who is neither straightforward nor frank. As he was not firm nor upfront, he believes he is victim of impositions and keeps complaining and moaning with everybody. He feels frustrated with his life. He does not accomplish himself.

He is permanently running away from others, and, more precisely, escaping direct confrontation with other people. He is constantly deceiving himself.

He is always thinking of doing something. He is extremely busy and never stops. He does not necessarily have a feeling of loss, nor is he afraid he will feel a loss, and for this reason, he does not necessarily have problems with his liver.

He needs to be asked:” What are you so afraid of that makes you be always on the run at high speed?” He is a very fast forward type of person, and very restless. He feels he must get on with it very fast, and that he is always excessively busy. He needs to hurry up!

Since the thyroid is our body’s accelerator, the body exposes that acceleration and accelerates the thyroid, creating hyperthyroidism. When the conflict is huge and fails to be verbalized, the probability to develop cancer increases.

Tumors in the thyroid (adenomas and fibromas) may be benign, that is when the tension in the conscience is lighter.

The person with this condition never lives the present moment, he never lives the “now” moment. Thyroid-related problems are a feminine symptom. It affects mostly women. It is advisable to look at the clan’s female pattern.

When the thyroid slows down, hypothyroidism occurs. This is the opposite situation and here the body has come to the conclusion that running away serves no good. The person gets into the opposite situation, he becomes apathetic but not in a state of asthenia (asthenia means extreme tiredness). He feels indifferent towards the world. He is not tired, only feels indifference.

Growth-related problems (see Growth) are very much associated to the endocrine system. There are three glands that participate in the balanced growing up process of individuals: the pituitary, the thyroid and the thymus.

As we have seen, the thyroid denotes the person’s capacity to express himself and to make himself understood. It is in the thyroid the body shows the person’s calculating attitude, as he learnt when to speak up and when to shut up.

The child who is not allowed to speak up, or who has realized that no one has made (or will make) any effort to understand him, gives up on himself, gives up on accelerating his own metabolism and stops it. Consequently, growth does not take place. The tension the body exposes is: “I cannot create my own space in this adult world. It is not worth my growing up. I do not want to be like them.” When this tension occurs during pregnancy, the child is born with Small stature syndrome (nanism).
