Sluggish Thyroid?

Could a Sluggish Thyroid Make You Fat and Tired? Learn about three big thyroid problems that many people ignore.

Are you one of the many women who:
•Struggle to manage their weight?
•Are tired and fatigued for no reason?
•Always have cold hands and feet?

Do you find yourself feeling “dead tired” and overweight? Is your doctor telling you, “You’re just getting old,” “It’s all in your head,” or “It’s because of your lifestyle?”

The thyroid is a little gland shaped like a butterfly that's found in the lower part of your neck.

It weighs only one ounce, and it secretes only one teaspoon of thyroid hormone in a whole year! But don't let its little size or productivity fool you.

You need a healthy thyroid because it...
•Drives the metabolic rate of every cell in your body. With a stubborn thyroid, it's almost impossible for you to lose weight.
•Converts oxygen and calories into energy. With a sluggish thyroid, you'll feel zapped and lethargic, even if you rest or sleep a lot.
•Governs everything from energy to appetite, from body temperature to weight, from mood to sex drive. An unbalanced thyroid wreaks havoc on your health.
•Affects your heart, cholesterol, brain, elimination, bones and joints. Ignoring a balky thyroid could lead to serious health conditions.
