Balance your hormones, Balance your mind
The impact of stress on thyroid occurs by slowing your body’s metabolism.
When thyroid function slows during stress, triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4) hormone levels will fall down. The positive effect of yoga on improving thyroid function.
The thyroid gland is located in the front part of the neck below the thyroid cartilage (Adam’s apple). The gland produces thyroid hormones, which regulates body’s metabolism. Thyroid hormones are important in regulating body energy, the body’s use of other hormones and vitamins and growth and maturation of body tissues.
Diseases of the thyroid gland can result in either production of too much(hyperthyroidism) or too little(hypothyroidism) hormone
Production of thyroid hormones: the process of hormone synthesis begins in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, the hypothalamus releases thyrotropin releasing hormones (TRH). The TRH travels through the Venous plexus located in the pituitary stalk to the pituitary gland also in the brain in response, the pituitary gland then release thyroid -stimulating hormone into the blood. The TSH travels to the thyroid gland and stimulates the thyroid to produce the two thyroid hormones- thyroxine (T4) and Triiodothyronine (T3). The thyroid gland also needs adequate amounts of dietary iodine to produce T4 and T3.
Regulation of thyroid hormone production: To prevent the overproduction or under production of thyroid hormones the pituitary gland can sense how much hormone is in the blood and adjust the production of hormones accordingly. For example, when there is too much thyroid hormone in the blood, TRH and TSH production decreases. The sum effect of this is to decrease the amount of TSH released from the pituitary gland and to reduce production of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland to restore the amount of thyroid hormone in the blood to normal. Defects in these regulatory pathways may result in the hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
