Can you products help with my thyroids?Updated 2 months ago

From written accounts to world-leading researchers and the wide customer base using our saunas, we have heard resounding support for help with Thyroid issues.

Inhibiting The Sympathetic Nervous System. 

The sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system activates the brain, muscles, thyroid and adrenal glands to respond to stress. It also tends to inhibit the activity of the eliminative organs and the immune system... Sauna therapy is helpful for this purpose."

Effects On Body Organs And Systems 

Saunas have wide-ranging effects on many body organs and systems. This occurs because the sauna helps remove toxic metals, toxic chemicals and chronic infections. The general effect is a normalization of the functioning of the organs. Following is a summary of more specific effects based on current research. There is a great need for more research on the sauna’s effects. 

Endocrine System

During sauna use, sympathetic inhibition causes decreased secretion of adrenal and thyroid hormones. This rests the glands. Blood sugar may decrease slightly. Insulin and glucagon secretion decrease. The removal of toxic substances benefits the entire endocrine system."

Listen to this podcast with our SaunaSpace® Founder Brian Richards and Healthful Pursuit® Leanne Vogel. She speaks to her hypothyroidism.

Take a look at this article from Carrie Vitt of Deliciously Organic titled "The Benefits of Red Light Therapy for the Thyroid."

This placebo-controlled clinical trial showed how LLLT was effective at improving thyroid function (increased production of T4) and helped reduce autoimmunity by lowering thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOab). 

Another study concluded as well that “the preliminary results indicate that LLLT promotes the improvement of thyroid function, as patients experienced a decreased need for LT4, a reduction in TPOAb levels, and an increase in parenchymal echogenicity.”

This study shows how LLLT improves the function of the thyroid tissues.

A long-term follow-up study concluded that LLLT has been deemed safe for the treatment of hypothyroidism that is caused by autoimmune thyroiditis.

Additionally, this study showed how LLLT can create a “significant increase in serum TGF-β1 levels 30 days post-intervention in the PBM group, thus confirming the anti-inflammatory effect.”
