The Thyroid gland plays a vital role in regulating the body's metabolism & rate of energy product. When the thyroid is not functioning properly, every organ in the body will be effected, reducing the rate at which nutrients can be assimilated and toxic wastes can be eliminated. When the thyroid slows down and becomes under active, the rate of energy production slows down, so that there is a shortage of current within cellular factories. When large amounts of energy are required for a special task, other functions in the body are put on hold. For example, after a meal, a great deal of energy is required for the digestive process. Other functions, like thinking processes, slow down. It is not unusual for people with a low thyroid to fall asleep after eating.
Some low thyroid people wake up feeling good, but as the day wears on, they get very tired. Typically they burn out between 4-6 pm. If they are nervous low thyroid types, they wont be able to drag themselves out of bed in the morning either. The thyroid gland is especially sensitive to nutritional deficits, especially iodine and the amino acid tyrosine, from which it manufactures its hormones.
When the Thyroid isn't functioning properly a lot of symptoms can be experienced in the body that could be attributed to other sources, such as stress. Fatigue, lack of zest, sensitivity to the cold, decreased appetite, lack of mental and physical vigour, clumsiness and even a numbness and tingling in the hands and feet may be showing that this organ is not functioning well.
