Sound Solutions to Help Regulate Your Body’s Hormone Regulators

The thyroid is a gland at the bottom of your neck that, while small in size, has an enormous impact on your wellbeing. It controls your metabolism, affecting weight gain/loss, body temperature, blood pressure as well as how fast your heart beats. The parathyroid glands sit next to the thyroid and regulate calcium levels in your bloodstream, supporting the nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems. We don’t often think about these glands when they’re working properly, but the onset of a disorder can profoundly (and quickly) affect your overall health.
