ThyroRev™ is based on an ancient herbal formula which is thought to improve the absorption of important vitamins and minerals that your thyroid needs to produce T4 and T3 by promoting the healing of intestinal function, in particular the spleen. These include magnesium, zinc, selenium, iron, B vitamins, and amino acids.
Early stages of hypothyroidism is associated with Spleen Qi deficiency which is basically poor digestion, which can develop into more serious deficiencies, which will further affect the function of all remaining organs. General symptoms of Qi deficiency include lethargy and fatigue, which improve with rest, which are key symptoms associated with hypothyroidism.
The Spleen and Stomach control the transformation and transportation of food and nutrients they play an essential role in generation of Qi (blood vitality). Qi and blood are both vital to life, Qi means energy, blood points to circulating blood and its formed elements, blood and nutrients furnish nourishment to all organs and tissues of the body.
In Chinese Medicine, the digestive process is related to Spleen and Stomach Qi. The Stomach receives and ripens food, sending the “pure” part to the Spleen for processing, and the “impure” part to the Small Intestine for sorting. In the meantime, the Spleen transforms and transports the food. Food is transformed into nutritive essence, and then transported to the Heart and Lungs to be converted into Qi and Blood.
An individual with a Deficiency of Spleen Qi may have typical symptoms of indigestion, such as gas, bloating, and general fatigue.
Perhaps what the ancient Chinese doctors were describing with the term Spleen Qi is predominantly the collective action of the gut flora. What the ancient doctors lacked in microbiology they made up for with keen observation and an awareness of functional problems when the body’s structures seemed to be otherwise healthy.
It is important to understand that hypothyroidism is the condition arising due to the chronic deficiency of one or more vital substances of the body: Qi, Blood, Yang, Yin and Essence. This is a systemic disorder which may start with general Qi deficiency and affect all organ systems over the long period of disease progression. The Spleen, Kidney and Heart are three primary organs involved in the pathogenesis of hypothyroidism. [source]
What Causes Hypothyroidism / Qi Deficiency
It seems that emotional disturbances such as stress and trauma which can cause an individual to lose one’s vitality and succumb to illness. This disturbance being emotional or chemical results in damage to the microbiome and malnutrition.
In the current Chinese medical jargon, the basis for the unmoved heart corresponds to having strong qi and blood that protects and defends against external influences, so that the shen (spirit) is not disturbed and illness does not arise. By staying serene in the face of outer disturbances, described as maintaining an “unmoved heart,” and proceeds with an investigation of how disturbance and pathological conditions can arise. That strong qi is courage, will, virtue, and, most importantly, the dedication to living a good life: the life of a noble man.
What is it then, that causes the dispersion of the qi and the disorder of the passions which is sufficient to block the actualisation of the heart’s potential for achieving the promise of its nature? The qi is very much affected by its interaction with the outer world and this interaction occurs in the realm of the senses that provides individuals with their channels of communication with the outer world. It is not the senses, through which interaction with the outer world takes place, that are the locus of evil.
On the contrary, the senses belong to our heavenly nature: they are part of that nature which we share with the animals. It is entirely natural for the palate to love good tastes, the ear to love good sounds, and the eyes beautiful sights. Evil somehow arises in the area of the interaction between the qi and the senses. There is something in the nature of the qi and the senses as they operate within the human being that leads them to become fixated on and obsessed with or excessively repelled by various aspects of the outer world.
The epicurean glutton does not simply enjoy good tastes, he becomes fixated on the limitless quantity and variety of good tastes. The unthinking senses can trigger either vast excesses of desire or of repulsion which completely upset the balance of the emotions and dissipate a person’s vital qi. Where the vital qi is not drained off by these external obsessions, then the vital qi is maintained in balance (source).
The Spleen & Stomach
The Spleen is the most important organ of the body in absorbing the nutrients from the food and transforming them into the Yin, Yang, and Qi energy etc, the fundamental elements in regulating our overall body functions. A strong Spleen function supplies the body abundant Yin, Yang, Qi and nutrients. When the Spleen Qi is inadequate, adsorption and transportation of nutrients is affected, causing pale face, low soft voice, poor appetite, loose stool, weakness of limbs, weak pulse etc. The stomach function is always associated with spleen efficiency. The food should first be chewed well and the stomach needs to have high acid (HCL) level to be able to properly break down the food into the chime which then moves into the intestine. As we age our stomach acid lowers opening us up to malnutrution and poor immune function, so including supplements which improve the stomach acid and enzymes such as GALL-AID, Digestive Bitters, Apple Cider Vinegar or Betaine HCL are very beneficial.
In Spleen deficiency patients, peripheral blood lymphocyte count is lower than normal. In patients with chronic hepatitis B with liver depression and Spleen deficiency, it is also lower than normal, but can be restored to near normal after Spleen-fortifying therapy. T cell subset study revealed significantly decreased total T cell and TH lymphocytes. Among cancer patients with Spleen deficiency, CD4 was lower than normal, whereas CD8 had no change. On treatment with Astragalus and Atractylodes, CD4 was elevated significantly. [source]
