8 Yoga Poses That Stimulate Thyroid Function And Restore Thyroid Levels

Yoga is an Eastern practice that goes back thousands of years. Only recent has it become a popularized form of exercise in the West.

Although the real intention of yoga (unity of body with spirit) is rarely attainted in the colonized Western version of the practice, the postures involved still provide a low-impact form of stretching. These stretches and poses, which allow blood to flow to areas that need healing, can undoubtedly address specific health concerns.

There are thousands, if not millions, of yoga poses, from which you can choose to target different areas of your body. Poses run from easy (like corpse pose) to advanced (like crow pose), so they’re good for any age, or shape.

Where Is The Thyroid?

The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped organ that sits in the front of your neck. It produces hormones that regulate your metabolism and affect every organ in the body. Thyroid hormones are also involved in the regulation of skeletal growth and maintenance, as well as heart function.

Around 27-million Americans have thyroid disease, and even more have low thyroid function.

Symptoms of thyroid dysfunction include:
– Fatigue
– Slowed metabolism
– Weight gain
– Constipation
– Difficulty concentrating
– Waxy skin and swelling (myxedema)
– Dry skin
– Low libido
– Depression
– Slow pulse
– Dry, brittle hair
– Deep, hoarse voice
