Did you know we can learn about the thyroid from mineral testing? Yes, it’s true! Read on to learn how to improve your thyroid with minerals!
One of the main reasons I personally got into mineral testing was because I had all the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction, but my lab results were only slightly out of range.
This left me with no help from my doctor and confusion around how to restore proper thyroid function.
Eventually, I learned about how minerals can impact thyroid function, which lead me to the Hair Test Mineral Analysis (HTMA).
When the Calcium to Potassium (Ca/K) ratio is high on an HTMA test, I often see clients struggling with hypothyroid symptoms:
- weight gain
- dry skin
- hair loss
- brain fog
- puffy face
- feeling cold
Calcium & Thyroid
95% of calcium is in the bones and teeth. When calcium starts to move to out of the bones and teeth it causes problems. The main issue being that calcium binds to iodine receptors and impacts thyroid hormone. When I see high calcium on HTMA tests, it means calcium isn’t where it should be (in the bones and teeth) and is leaving through your hair, which is showing us that it’s likely binding to iodine receptors and slowing down your thyroid function.
Potassium & Thyroid
Potassium is another important piece of the puzzle because it’s associated with the sensitivity of the tissues to the thyroid hormone. When we don’t have enough potassium, it can also impair thyroid function. The daily requirement for potassium is 4,600mg and most women don’t come anywhere near this amount!!
As you can see, calcium and potassium are important minerals for assessing thyroid function. When they are out of range, you can use minerals to help your thyroid work more optimally.
How to improve your thyroid with minerals
This approach to minerals has been a game-changer for me. Just check out my before and after HTMA tests below.
As you can see on my first test (below), my thyroid ratio well out of range at 60.33. (The ideal ration is between 2.2 and 6.2.)
Several months later, focusing on nourishing my body with the appropriate minerals, my thyroid ratio was optimal (5.19) and my bloodwork showed the same!
Minerals are the coolest.
