The thyroid gland ceases to secrete hormones in the required amount, which include iodine. This is due to insufficient intake of it into the body. As a result of these disorders, a disease occurs, which is called endemic goiter. It is especially common in those areas where there is a low iodine content in water and soil. Toxic diffuse goiter occurs as a result of an increase in the function of the gland, which releases an excess amount of thyroxine into the blood (Graves' disease).

Pay attention to the signs of a goiter. Against the background of metabolic disorders in endemic goiter, irritability, nervousness and emotional disorders appear. The thyroid gland, which is located under the skin on the front of the neck, swells. Absent-mindedness, hand tremors, palpitations, and bulging eyes are symptoms that accompany Graves' disease.
Include in your diet foods rich in iodine, which must be ingested organically. Eat seafood, seaweed, tomatoes, onions, citrus fruits. Avoid the daily consumption of fatty meats, coffee, alcohol, spices and white flour products.
Folk remedies come to the rescue in the treatment of goiter. If your goiter is accompanied by a rapid heartbeat, use a mixture of common heather, medicinal lungwort, and motherwort. Pour three tablespoons of the collection with a liter of boiling water. Take 50 ml six times a day. If your heart rate is slow, reduce the amount of motherwort to 1 tablespoon.
Grind fresh oak bark into a gruel and apply as a mask to the thyroid gland, or simply wipe the neck with the bark. Wear amber beads. It should be natural yellow amber.
