“Life Long Disease” is the general term used for thyroid. What is thyroid exactly? Let’s try to understand.
Understanding The Disease
Adrenals are glands that are situated above the kidneys; secrete hormones such as cortisol, epinephrine and norepinephrine that regulate the stress response. These hormones play crucial roles, many of which are directly related to thyroid health. Proper thyroid function depends on healthy adrenal glands.
How Does Stress Harm The Physical Health?
Stress disturbs the body’s natural balance (homeostasis). Adrenal stress is probably the most common problem one encounters. Symptoms of adrenal stress are diverse and non-specific, because the adrenals affect every system in the body.
Weak adrenals can cause hypothyroid symptoms without any problem in the thyroid gland itself. In such cases, treating thyroid becomes ineffective, and addressing the adrenals themselves is the key to improving thyroid function. Adrenal stress also has more direct impacts on thyroid function.
How does Adrenal Stress Affects Well Being?
A) Adrenal stress disrupts the HPA axis, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal. It works at controlling the body’s reaction to stress and trauma.
B) Adrenal stress reduces conversion of T4 to T3.
C) Adrenal stress promotes autoimmunity by weakening immune barriers. The GI tract, lungs and the blood-brain barrier are the main immune barriers in the body. They prevent foreign substances from entering the bloodstream and the brain. Adrenal stress weakens these barriers, and weakens the immune system in general.
D) Adrenal stress causes thyroid hormone resistance.
E) Adrenal stress causes hormonal imbalances.
Balancing the Adrenals
Apart from a few nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins, Adrenalin stress is caused by chronic emotional and psychological stress. This stress has to be addressed in a systematic way to uproot it. The deep corrective breathing exercise called Nitaai Breathing can lower the stress hormone levels considerably and decrease the activity in our body’s nervous system. The practitioner immediately feels an initial sense of relief and calmness of mind. As he or she progresses, the benefits multiplies. Thus bringing down the stress level drastically.
Nitaai Breathing consists of deeply inhaling and audibly resonating the sound “Nitaai” very slowly whilst exhalation. While doing this, “Ni” is short, “taa” is long and “i” is short again. This has to be done for about 10 minutes a day initially, and can be increased gradually. There are no restrictions on where and in which posture one should do this. Try it and experience the difference in your thyroid levels.
Testimonials by Hemant Patel, Gujarat, India:
I had hyperthyroid and high cholesterol for last three years and was undergoing the treatment at Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. I was taking medicines regularly under the doctor’s guidance but was not getting satisfactory results in bringing them down to a desired level. Fortunately, I came across Nitaai Breathing website. And I started doing Nitaai Breathing for atleast 30 minutes daily along with my medicines. I got my medical reports after three months of this exercise, and miraculously I found that both the thyroid and cholesterol levels had gone down remarkably to the desired ratio which is required to remain healthy. My faith has became stronger and deeper in this incredible process of Nitai Breathing. I suggest everyone to try this process very seriously if you wish to quickly become healthy.
