The thyroid is a gland located in the base of the neck. It secretes a hormone that controls metabolic activity in the body - it acts as the body's thermostat and regulator. It is one of the glands that make up the endocrine system, along with the adrenals, the ovaries, the pituitary and the thymus. When one gland becomes stressed or compromised, it can affect or "drag down" the others along with it.
Thank you for your Itch Relief Tincture! I had cholestasis with my first pregnancy that led to induction at 39 weeks and this second time (taking the Itch Relief) i made it all the way to 41 weeks with a natural birth! Thank you! D.H.
