Why it's important to keep your thyroid thriving!
Most of us don't pay much attention to our thyroid gland until something goes wrong. However, maintaining a healthy thyroid is essential for all stages of life. Not only does it secrete essential hormones for growth and metabolism, but poor functioning of the thyroid is associated with such health conditions as cardiac disease, diabetes, and arthritis.
According to the Thyroid Foundation of Canada, it is estimated that 200 million people around the world have some form of thyroid disease. In Canada alone, 1 in 10 individuals suffer from a thyroid condition, from nodules to thyroid cancer, and, of those, an estimated 50% remain undiagnosed.
