THYROID GLAND: self-diagnosis


Experts in the field of endocrinology suggest some simple tests that may hold anyone in the home and to determine whether there are any signs of disturbance of the thyroid gland.

About the thyroid gland and its critical role for the organism is known to many. But, unfortunately, often the diagnosis of diseases of this organ occurs in the later stages, when symptoms are pronounced, and irreversible damage to health already done. It is important to detect thyroid disease at the beginning of its development. In this case, it is possible to achieve a full normalization of organ function, and avoid the serious consequences of hormonal imbalance.


Methods of self-diagnosis of thyroid disease

Test # 1: lack of iodine in the body


As known, the main elements that the thyroid gland uses to build their hormones is iodine. And that selenium deficiency is the main cause of malfunctioning of the thyroid system.


To check whether you have enough iodine in your body, you can perform a fairly simple test.

To do this, on your wrist, apply iodine mesh cotton budsmoistened with an alcohol solution of iodine.


  • If after 60 minutes all the iodine is absorbed by the skin, it is likely the body has its disadvantage and it is necessary to consult a doctor for detailed examination.
  • If after that time iodine mesh has the same figure or slightly absorbed, then you’re all right.




Test # 2: thyroid gland is enlarged

To determine that the thyroid gland is enlarged, it is difficult, but for this there is a simple home method.


  • You need to stand at the mirror, then dial the mouth a large quantity of water.
  • Lift up your chin and take a few small SIPS.


If in the mirror have you noticed that in the place where is located now the thyroid gland that produces swelling means the body is increased.


But, in order to verify this, you need to do an ultrasound of the thyroid gland.


Test # 3: hair loss


In diseases of the thyroid gland in many people begin to lose hair. And this process begins from the head and eyebrows. Thus, in the beginning you can not even notice that something is wrong.


  • To verify this symptom, you need to put pencil or pen to the outside corner of the eye. The direction of the pencil parallel to your nose.


If the outer line of the eyebrow beyond an imaginary line, it’s all right, but if not, you should smell a rat.published econet.ru.

Ten major uses of magnesium


Magnesium is second only to potassium in terms of a concentration in individual cells of the body. Functions of magnesium are primarily related to its ability to activate many enzymes.

Magnesium deficiency is extremely common in Americans, especially the elderly and women during the premenstrual period. Such a deficit often occurs on the background of the effects of factors that reduce magnesium absorption or increase its secretion, namely, the administration of large doses of calcium, alcohol, surgery, diuretics, liver and kidney, and oral contraceptives.

Among the signs and symptoms of magnesium deficiency include fatigue, confusion, irritability, weakness, violation the normal functioning of the heart, problems with nerve conduction and muscle contraction, cramps, loss of appetite, insomnia and predisposition to stress.

Below are ten major diseases, the treatment which uses magnesium:

Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Magnesium promotes relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle, causing the Airways open and breathing easier. Intravenous magnesium is proven and approved for use in hospitals, a measure that allows to remove an acute attack of asthma, and to mitigate the acute flares of COPD. Unfortunately, long-term oral supplementation with magnesium as a treatment for asthma or COPD has not been fully investigated.

Syndrome attention deficit disorder (add)

Magnesium deficiency may play a role in the emergence of add, because research shows that many children with add have low levels of magnesium. In a preliminary study, magnesium has reduced hyperactivity in children with add combined with hyperactivity. In the study, 50 children with add and low levels of magnesium (which was defined as the levels of magnesium in red blood cells, hair, and serum) received 200 mg of magnesium per day for six months. Compared with 25 other children with add and magnesium deficiency in children who received supplementation with magnesium, there was a significant reduction in the frequency of hyperactive behavior.

Cardiovascular disease

Magnesium is absolutely necessary for the proper functioning of the heart. The role of magnesium in preventing heart disease and strokes is well established. In addition, there is a considerable amount of scientific evidence that the additional intake of magnesium is effective in the treatment of a wide range of cardiovascular diseases, namely:


It has been proven that the additional administration of magnesium in the body (in most of the studies used intravenous administration) is useful in the treatment of angina because it causes spasm of the coronary artery or atherosclerosis. Beneficial effects of magnesium in the treatment of angina is related to its ability to improve energy production in heart and to expand coronary arteries, which leads to ensure the delivery of a greater volume of oxygen to the heart, reduction in peripheral vascular resistance, which reduces the load on the heart, prevent accumulation of platelets and blood clots, and improve heart rate.

Cardiac arrhythmia

Information about the usefulness of magnesium in the treatment of arrhythmias was obtained in 1935. More than sixty years later, there have been many double-blind studies showing that magnesium is useful in many types of arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation, premature ventricular contraction, ventricular tachycardia and severe types of ventricular arrhythmias.

Congestive heart failure

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is the inability of the heart to efficiently pump blood. CHF most often occurs because of long term effects of high blood pressure, disturbances of work of a heart valve or cardiomyopathy. Levels of magnesium, appears to be directly associated with indicators of survival in such situations. In one study, 1 – and 2-year levels of survival in patients with CHF and normal levels of magnesium were respectively 71% and 61% compared with 45% and 42% in patients with lower levels of magnesium. In addition to the treatment of CHF, the additional administration of magnesium in the body also prevents the depletion of magnesium caused by traditional drug therapy for CHF based on the use of digitalis, diuretics and vasodilators (beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, etc.).

High blood pressure

In demographic research generated a substantial body of evidence confirming that a high intake of magnesium leads to a decrease in blood pressure. Based on this evidence, researchers have begun to explore the possibility of using magnesium supplements to treat high blood pressure. The results obtained at the end of double-blind studies, have been mixed. Some of researches showed very good effect of lowering blood pressure, and in other studies such an effect has been identified. It seems that magnesium is most useful when a person takes a diuretic or has a high level of renin is secreted by the kidney enzyme, which ultimately leads to the formation of angiotensin and the release of aldosterone. These compounds cause a reduction of blood vessels and increased blood pressure. The degree of reduction of blood pressure when taking magnesium, as a rule, is rather modest (i.e. less than 10 mm Hg. article systolic and diastolic blood pressure).


It is known that magnesium plays a key role in the secretion and effects of insulin. Several studies of patients with diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance have shown that magnesium is useful in the treatment of these diseases. Magnesium supplements (usually 400 to 500 mg per day) improves insulin response and its impact, improve glucose tolerance and membrane fluidity of red blood cells. In addition, levels of magnesium are usually low in diabetics and lowest in those with severe retinopathy. Diabetics have a higher need for magnesium, so they need to take appropriate food supplements to its satisfaction.


Hidden deficiency of magnesium can lead to chronic fatigue and symptoms similar to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Low level of red blood cells in the blood, which is a more accurate indicator of the level of magnesium than the usual analysis of blood was discovered in many patients with chronic fatigue and CFS. Double-blind study of people with CFS showed that the additional intake of magnesium significantly increased energy levels, improved emotional state and reduce pain. These later studies confirm the findings in the 1960-ies of the clinical trials patients suffering chronic fatigue. In these earlier studies used oral ingestion of magnesium aspartate and potassium and it was found that 75-91% of the nearly 3000 patients studied experience less fatigue during treatment with magnesium and potassium aspartates. In contrast, the number of patients reacted to placebo, was 9-26%. A beneficial effect was usually observed only after 4-5 days, but sometimes for its manifestation was required 10 days. Patients usually continued treatment for 4-6 weeks.


Fibromyalgia is a condition that was recently recognized disease and considered to be a common cause of chronic muscle skeletal pain and fatigue. One study showed that daily supplementation of 300-600 mg of magnesium (in the form of malic acid and magnesium) resulted in a significant reduction in the number of pain points and severity of pain in them.

Kidney stones

Magnesium increases the solubility of calcium in the urine and thereby prevents the formation of kidney stones. The introduction of additives to magnesium in the diet has demonstrated significant effect in preventing recurrences of kidney stones. However, when used in combination with vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), there is an even greater effect.

Migraine and tension headache

There is considerable evidence that low levels of magnesium cause migraines and tension headaches. Double-blind studies have shown that taking magnesium supplements people with a low level of this element brought excellent results.

Pregnancy (toxemia, premature delivery and other complications)

During pregnancy the need for magnesium increases, which is reflected in the increase of the RDA from 280 to 350 mg per day. Magnesium deficiency during pregnancy is associated with preeclampsia (a serious complication of pregnancy associated with high blood pressure, fluid retention and protein loss in the urine), premature birth and slow fetal growth. It was also proven that the introduction in the diet of pregnant women extra magnesium, taken orally, significantly reduced the incidence of such complications.

Premenstrual syndrome

It is suggested that magnesium deficiency is a causal factor in premenstrual syndrome. Although, it has been proven that supplementation with magnesium are effective on their own, even better results can be achieved by combining them with the intake of vitamin B6 and other nutrients. The results of several studies showed that patients with PMS while taking multivitamin and mineral supplements with high doses of magnesium and vitamin B6 experience significant relief of PMS symptoms. During the research of only one magnesium the symptoms of PMS is not attenuated to the same extent.

Available forms

Magnesium is available in several different forms. Absorption studies indicate that magnesium is easily absorbed orally, especially when it is associated with citrate, and glycine, aspartate and malate. Inorganic forms of magnesium such as the chloride, oxide and carbonate of magnesium, is usually well absorbed, but more likely to cause diarrhea at higher doses.

Cautions and warnings

If you suffer from serious heart failure or kidney disease, consult your doctor before taking any supplements with magnesium.

Possible side effects

In General, magnesium is very well tolerated. Magnesium supplements can sometimes cause diarrhea. In particular, we are talking about magnesium sulfate (Epsom salts), epoxide and magnesium chloride.

Interactions with drugs

There are many drugs that seem to have an adverse impact on the level of magnesium in the body. Most notable are many diuretics, insulin and digitalis.

Interaction with food:

Magnesium actively interacts with calcium, potassium and other minerals. High dosages of other minerals reduce the intake of magnesium and Vice versa. High intake of calcium and dairy products fortified with vitamin D reducing absorption of magnesium. Vitamin B6 works together with magnesium in many enzyme systems.

The usual dosage

The usual recommendation of magnesium is a supplementation according to the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of 350 mg per day for adult males and 280 mg per day for adult women. Many nutrition experts believe that the ideal intake of magnesium should be based on body weight (6 mg per 1 kg of body weight). For a person weighing 50 kg, the recommended intake is 300 mg for a person weighing 70 kg 420 mg for a person weighing 91 kg to 540 mg.


Usually the overdose leads to diarrhea. In case of accidental overdose, do the following: If the victim loses consciousness or is he having convulsions, immediately call an ambulance. If you’re taking the victim to the emergency room, be sure to bring a bottle or container of the product that caused her disease condition. If the person is conscious, call the local poison control center or health worker. Poison control center may suggest to induce vomiting with syrup meadowsweet (available without prescription in any pharmacy). Do NOT INDUCE vomiting, unless you receive specific instructions to do so.

    Coenzyme Q10 is the “spark plug” of the body


    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a “spark plug” of the human body: just as a car cannot run without starting a spark, the human body can’t do without CoQ10. This is the most important component of mitochondria that produce the energy that cells need to divide, move, shrink, and perform all other functions. CoQ10 also plays an important role in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) — the energy that drives all processes in the body. Moreover, CoQ10 is a very important antioxidant that protects cells from damage.

    Although our bodies can produce CoQ10, it does not always produce it in sufficient quantity. Since the brain and heart are among the most active tissues of the body, CoQ10 deficiency affects them most and can lead to serious issues with these bodies. A CoQ10 deficiency can cause various causes, including poor diet, genetic or acquired defects, for example, increased tissue demand. Cardiovascular disease, including high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure, also require increasing levels of CoQ10 in the tissues. In addition, because CoQ10 levels decline with age, people over 50 may need more of this substance. Many studies have shown that several drugs (especially lipid-lowering drugs such as statins) reduce CoQ10 levels.

    Given the key role of CoQ10 in mitochondrial function and protection of cells, the coenzyme can be useful when you have a number of health problems. CoQ10 can be of benefit if there is such a wide range of diseases that there is no doubt of its importance as nutrients. CoQ10 is an antioxidant not only common actions but also can help in following diseases:

    • Cardiovascular disease: high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, protection during surgical operations on the heart, high cholesterol levels are treated with medications, especially statins
    • Cancer (to improve immune function and/or compensate for the side effects of chemotherapy)
    • Diabetes
    • Male infertility
    • Alzheimer’s disease (prevention)
    • Parkinson’s disease (prevention and treatment)
    • Periodontal disease
    • Macular degeneration


    Studies on both animals and humans have confirmed the usefulness of CoQ10 for all the above diseases, especially cardiovascular. In fact, studies have shown that 50-75 percent of people with various diseases of the cardiovascular system are suffering from CoQ10 deficiency in cardiac tissues. The elimination of this drawback can often lead to dramatic results in patients with any heart disease. For example, it has been proven that CoQ10 deficiency occurs in 39 percent of patients with high blood pressure. Only this conclusion necessitates supplementation with CoQ10. However, it appears that the benefits of CoQ10 are not limited to the removal of cardiovascular failure.

    A 2009 study, the results of which were published in the journal Pharmacology & Therapeutics, suggests that the effect of CoQ10 on blood pressure is becoming visible in only 4 to 12 weeks after treatment and typical decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure is quite modest — in the range of 10 percent.

    Satinovye drugs such as Crestor, Lipitor and Zocor, act by inhibiting the enzyme that is necessary for liver to produce cholesterol. Unfortunately, they also block the production of other substances necessary for the functioning of the body, including CoQ10. This may explain the most common side effects of these drugs, especially fatigue and muscle pain. In one large study ENDOTACT, the results of which were published in the International Journal of Cardiology in 2005, it was demonstrated that starinova therapy significantly reduces the levels of CoQ10 in the blood plasma, but this reduction can be prevented by supplementation with 150 mg CoQ10. In addition, CoQ10 supplementation significantly improves the function of the lining of blood vessels, which is one of the key goals in the treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis.

    In double-blind studies have shown that supplementation with CoQ10 has been very helpful for some patients with Parkinson’s disease. All patients in these studies were the three main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease — tremor, rigidity and slow movement, and the diagnosis was delivered to them in the last five years.

    In 2005 a study published in the Archives of Neurology, also showed a slower decline in the functionality of patients with Parkinson’s disease who took CoQ10. After initial screening and baseline blood tests, the patients were divided randomly into four groups. Three groups received CoQ10 at different doses (300 mg, 600 mg and 1200 mg per day) for 16 months, while a fourth group received a placebo. The group that took the 1,200 mg dose showed less deterioration in mental and motor functions and ability to perform everyday activities such as feeding or dressing themselves. The greatest effect was observed in everyday life. The groups that received 300 mg and 600 mg per day, the disability developed to a lesser extent than in the placebo group, but the results from members of these groups were less radical than those who received the highest dosage of the drug. These results indicate that the beneficial effects of CoQ10 in Parkinson’s disease can be achieved with the highest doses of the drug. None of the patients were not observed any significant side effects.

    Safety and dosage

    Coenzyme Q10 is very safe. Never reported serious side effects even upon long-term use. Because safety during pregnancy and lactation has not been confirmed, CoQ10 should not be used during these periods unless a doctor determines that the clinical results outweigh the risks. I usually recommend taking 100 to 200 mg of CoQ10 per day. For better absorption of soft gelatin capsules should be taken with food. At higher dosage levels it is better to take the drug in divided doses rather than single dose (preferably at 200 mg three times a day, than all at once 600 mg).

    7 underrated medicinal plants


    Learn the basics of herbal medicine that will help to understand how to use the power of medicinal plants.

    Before there was modern medicine and Pharmacopeia of synthetic drugs, there were plants, and ancient civilizations knew how to use them strategically to treat common ailments and even life-threatening diseases. The ancient Egyptian papyrus of Ebers, a scroll Dating back to 1550 BC, a length of more than 100 pages long, details 700 medicinal herbs and methods of their use. The Greek corpus of Hippocrates to the 16th century BC also details the use of herbal medicine. Later, in the 1800s and early 1900s, knowledge about herbal medicine was passed down from generation to generation.


    Usually women were well informed about the benefits of herbs for treatment, and not only acted as the family doctor, but also prepared various herbal tonics to maintain health and other medications.


    Today, according to the world health organization (who), 80 percent of the population still uses traditional remedies, including plants, as the primary method of treatment.


    7 medicinal plants which You can use to benefit your health


    The basics of herbal medicine that will help you learn how to use the power of medicinal plants. Of course, this is just a small sample, and as soon as you get a little information, you’ll be inspired for further research.


    1. Ginger:


    Ginger is the one spice that I recommend to always keep on hand in the kitchen. Not only is it a great addition to your cooking (especially when combined with garlic), it also has enough medicinal properties to write about them in several books.


    Ginger is best known as a remedy for nausea, but it also has wide spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant and antiparasitic properties.


    There are more than 40 scientifically confirmed pharmacological actions. It is anti-inflammatory making it valuable for pain relief in joints during menstruation, headache, and many others.



    Pain-relieving potential of ginger appears far-reaching. Along with sore muscles and joints, it reduces the severity of migraine as well as the drug Sumatriptan, but with fewer side effects.


    Ginger can also fight cancer, zabutom, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease asthma bacterial and fungal infections, and is one of the best natural medicines for motion sickness or nausea (e.g. due to pregnancy or chemotherapy).


    One gram of ginger every day will help reduce nausea in pregnant or suffering from migraines. Ginger works better than placebo for morning sickness.


    It will also help if you struggle with indigestion, and it not just relieves pain, and contains powerful enzymes that digest proteins and stimulates bowel movement without any negative effect, and it is an antispasmodic remedy that may explain its beneficial effects on your intestinal tract.


    Many people regularly drink ginger tea, and this is one of the easiest ways to use it. Cut a couple of inches of the root and let it infuse in hot water for fresh ginger tea.


    I would not advise to use it daily, as it may cause allergies, as happened to me about twenty years ago.


    You can also clean the root with a knife to Vosa, and then slice it thinly (or grate on a grater or mince) to put it in your tea or dishes.


    You can’t go wrong by adding ginger to fried potatoes or even in your favorite homemade chicken soup.


    For serious diseases, the herbalist can help you get the most medicinal benefits of ginger.


    2. Garlic:


    Eat one or two cloves of fresh garlic a day and the doctor really won’t work, in part because it has immune stimulating, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal activity.


    Most of the therapeutic properties of garlic are explained by the presence therein of sulfur-containing compounds such as allicin, which gives it a characteristic odor.


    Overall, the advantages of garlic are divided into four main categories:


  • Reducing inflammation (reduces risk of osteoarthritis and other diseases associated with inflammation)
  • Improving immune function (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antiparasitic properties)
  • Improvement of cardiovascular system and circulation (protects against clotting, reduces plaque, improves lipids, and reduces blood pressure)
  • Toxic to 14 kinds of cancer cells (including brain cancer, lung, breast, gastric, and pancreas)

    In addition, garlic may be effective against drug-resistant bacteria, and research has shown that as allicin digests in your body, it produces sultanovoy acid, which reacts with dangerous free radicals faster than any other known compound. This is one of the reasons why I named garlic as one of the seven best anti-aging products.


    To bring health benefits, fresh garlic cloves must be crushed or cut to release the enzyme alliinase, which in turn triggers the formation of allicin. As allicin breaks down rapidly, forming a number of different sulfur compounds.


    To “activate” the healing properties of garlic, a spoon will crush it fresh slice before you eat it, or pass it through a juicer and add to a vegetable juice.


    One or two slices of medium size is usually sufficient, and this dose is well tolerated by most people.


    Active ingredient, allicin, breaks down within one hour of crushing the garlic, so garlic pills are virtually useless.


    Black garlic, which is essentially fermented and sprouts may contain even more antioxidants than conventional.


    3. Peppermint:


    Peppermint is useful for the respiratory system, including for coughs, colds, asthma, allergies and tuberculosis.


    As for digestive health, capsules of peppermint oil is described as “No. 1 choice” for IBS patients, and it is an effective alternative to drugs like Buscopan for reducing colonic spasms. It can relax the muscles of the internal organs, allowing the gas to pass and relieve pain in the abdomen.


    Try adding tea oil or peppermint leaves to relieve high gas formation.


    The peppermint aroma improves memory and relieves stress, while the oil acts as an expectorant and decongestant and helps to clear the airway.


    Use peppermint essential oil for cold rubbing on the chest or inhale it through a vaporizer to eliminate nasal congestion and relieve cough and cold symptoms.


    Peppermint oil can also help relieve headaches from tension.


    For headache, try to wipe a few drops to your wrist or flick a few drops on a cloth and then inhale it. You can also massage oil into the forehead and temples.

    • Collect and dry the mint, lemon balm, calendula, nettle or any other plant growing in your region.
    • Locate the plant near which you can sit every morning during the week; draw it.
    • Identify one skill of treatment that you would like to have, and learn —for example, sign up for classes on herbs or aromatherapy.
