The thyroid is a gland located at the neck base and is of extreme importance for the overall health. This gland produces thyroxin, a hormone which supports the regulation of the heart rate, metabolism, growth and development of children.
The thyroid gland can develop two types of disorders: hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
When it comes to hyperthyroidism, it means that the gland produces excessive amount of the thyroid hormone. The symptoms are:
- Increased heart rate and palpitations;
- Changes in the bowel habits;
- Menstrual issues;
- Feeling hot;
- Nervousness, anxiety, irritability;
- Sleeping issues;
- Difficulty concentrating;
- Weight loss;
- Racing thoughts.
On the other hand, hypothyroidism happens when the gland is underactive and does not produce sufficient amounts of the hormone. The symptoms include:
- Weight gain;
- Decreased menstrual flow;
- Swelling in the front of the neck;
- Dry hair and skin;
- Muscle cramps;
- Brittle nails;
Here is a natural remedy that can restore the balance of the thyroid gland.
To prepare it, you will need:
- 40 pieces of green (young) walnuts;
- 1 kg of organic honey;
- One large or several smaller jars.
Start by washing the walnuts and then leave them to dry. Then, prick them with some sharper knife or a needle and put them into the jar together with the honey. Don’t close the jar and leave the mixture to be exposed on sunlight for 40 days.
After 40 days, strain the liquid and pour it into a glass bottle. Take two tablespoons of the remedy twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.
