Melissa Teaching Joe the Form
Though the thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland, its impact on the body is anything but minute and delicate.
Melissa’s Personal Perspective
Hypothyroidism is a mysterious condition, but I’ve learned a few things about healing it along the way.
First, movement is key. I start my day with neck stretching exercises and qigong, which is a gentle form of exercise that focuses on breath and movement. Qigong helps to open and rotate the spine, which is important for thyroid health.
I also make sure to get enough iodine and selenium, which are essential minerals for the thyroid. I eat seamoss and bladderwrack gummies, and I take an organic liquid iron supplement.
Finally, I take a prescription for T3, which is a thyroid hormone. This has helped to restore what seems to be missing for many people in modern times.
Through discovering our physical bodies, we can find portals to find everything. It’s all within.
One of my favorite forms of qigong is Swimming Dragon. It supports longevity and good health because of its focus on breath, opening, rotating and twisting the spine.
Qigong movement transforms our energy, qi, into an active state. Energy can take many forms, one being dormant. And that is why movement is imperative to life. We are the engines to the movement.
So if you’re struggling with hypothyroidism, I encourage you to try some of these things. With a little bit of effort, you can get the upper hand on this condition and live a full and healthy life.
P.S. Join me for live qigong weekdays! It’s a great way to start your day and boost your thyroid health.
From a Humorous perspective:
- Hypothyroidism is like a stubborn toddler. It doesn’t always want to cooperate, but with patience and perseverance, you can get it under control.
- Qigong is like a magic wand for your energy. It can help to wake up your dormant energy and get it flowing freely.
- Moving our bodies is like giving our engines a tune-up. It helps us to run more smoothly and efficiently.
Unlocking Thyroid Wellness: Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Insights
Hypothyroidism, a common thyroid disorder, can leave you feeling fatigued, sluggish, and out of balance. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a holistic approach to tackle the root causes and provide natural remedies.
Root Causes of Hypothyroidism in TCM:
- Qi and Blood Stagnation: TCM identifies stagnation as a key disruptor of thyroid function. When Qi (vital energy) and Blood stagnate, symptoms like fatigue and weight gain can emerge.
- Kidney Yin Deficiency: In TCM, the kidneys play a vital role in hormonal balance. Weak kidneys can lead to imbalances affecting the thyroid gland.
- Spleen Qi Deficiency: The spleen’s function is to transform food into energy. A weakened spleen can hinder this process, contributing to hypothyroidism.
Qi Gong for Hormone Health:
Qi Gong, a TCM practice, involves gentle movements, breathing exercises, and meditation to promote Qi flow and overall well-being. Here are some Qi Gong forms that can benefit hormonal balance:
