Thyroid, Silica, and Bamboo Leaf Tea

Women are facing more stresses than ever these days.  We are multi-tasking gurus and so when faced with work, kids, home, ect. we say yes to it all.  We are over worked, over stressed, under nourished, and this is showing up in multiple areas of our health.   We are exposed to more toxins in our food and our environment then ever in the history of the world and all of this is being stored in our bodies.  We drink water that fluorinated and chlorinated.  We use toothpastes that states “harmful if swallowed”, we slather our bodies with make up and lotions that are full of bad estrogen components.  Our soils are depleted and our food is processed.

According to the American Thyroid Association 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid problem and 60% of them don’t know it.  Women are 5-8 times more likely to have thyroid issues.  The thyroid is a gland that produces hormones which helps to regulate bodily functions including metabolism.

Some of the symptoms for hyperthyroidism include:

weight loss – increased heart rate – anxiety – sensitivity to heat – trouble sleeping – increased sweating – hair loss – brittle bones

Some symptoms of hypothyroidism include:

weight gain – increased sensitivity to cold – brain fog – depression – fatigue -pale skin – horse voice – hair loss – higher levels of LDL cholesterol – constipation

More women than that fall into the catagory of sub-clinical meaning they have symptoms related to thyroid problems but the testing is not showing that there is a problem.  According to an article written in the American Academy of Family Physicians in 2005 there may be more than 20% of women over 60 being affected by sub-clinical thyroid issues.  Think about what that number might be now!

We need to heal ourselves, our bodies, and our soul.  We need to reduce stress and ground ourselves by walking barefoot on the grass and swimming in the ocean, lakes, or streams.  We need to reduce our sugar and flour intake and increase our sea weed consumption.

One of the great benefits of bamboo in relation to thyroid disease is the combination of digestive support and silica content.  Digestion is a huge component of every aliment that we have including thyroid issues.  Our body’s ability to eliminate waste and toxins has a direct impact on our overall health.  We have killed off beneficial bacteria in our gut by taking antibiotics and using antibacterial soaps and gels.  These bacteria are critical to our digestion ability.  In starting the healing process we need to first start with the gut.  This means pro-biotics, fermented foods, kombucha, and soluble fiber.

Bamboo Leaf Tea is the perfect tea to add in for the health of your digestive system.  The soluble fiber benefits help to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol, relieve constipation, and aid the body in eliminating toxins.  At the same time the silica content of Bamboo Leaf Tea aids in promoting hair growth, and increasing bone density.  Silica also has been shown to aid in the elimination of aluminum which adversely affects the thyroid.  Bamboo also helps to heal the liver, the filter of the body and this supports the overall digestion process.  The best part is that Bamboo Leaf Tea is easy to add into your diet.  Whether it’s cold tea on a hot day or hot tea at the end of your day Bamboo Leaf Tea is an simple and powerful way to move into a more healthy state of living.

I feel so fortunate that I can grow and manufacture a product that is aiding so many people on their path to a better life.  I get wonderful emails that touch my heart from women that have had hair falling out by the handfuls and after introducing Bamboo Leaf Tea into their daily routine the problem has stopped.

If you are experiencing thyroid issues please seek the guidance of a medical professional such as a naturopath or a holistic practitioner.  I wish you the best health and wellbeing on this life journey.

Many blessings and happy summer,

Shanti
