Have you been to your GP with symptoms of exhaustion, anxiety, depression, irregular or painful periods, or just not quite feeling right… had blood tests taken, think that you are going to finally get some answers, only to have the results come back and be told you’re fine? Even though you feel so far from fine?
If a deficiency of serotonin is not causing the problem, then what is? Many physicians have been asking this question for a long while, and there is actually plenty of research that answers this question. The problem is that, until now, this research had not made it to mainstream media, and so remained largely unacknowledged by the public.
Have you presented to your GP feeling exhausted, gaining weight, constipated, depressed, with cold hands and feet, hair loss, dry skin, and just feeling generally not great? The doctor may have run some blood tests, and tested your thyroid... and more often than not, told you that it's "fine". Your thyroid probably hasn't been tested properly.
I have had hundreds of conversations with people who are exhausted but have been told that their blood tests are "fine", yet they are experiencing symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, subfertility, constipation, acne, hair loss, and more. Are your test results really fine?
Iodine is an essential mineral which is most commonly known for its involvement in thyroid hormone production. It is also critical for oestrogen metabolism, breast health, ovulation, progesterone production, pregnancy and lactation. Iodine is crucial for human health, and though we only need small amounts of it, deficiency is common.
