Thyroid the Super Gland

According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

“The thyroid gland is a reflex of the ovaries, uterus, and testes.”


According to Ray Peat (interviewed by Mary Shomon, Nov. 2000) …

“The thyroid gland, which normally produces some T3, will decrease its production in the presence of increased thyroxine. Therefore, thyroxine often acts as a ‘thyroid anti-hormone,’ especially in women. When thyroxine was tested in healthy young male medical students, it seemed to function ‘just like the thyroid hormone,’ but in people who are seriously hypothyroid, it can suppress their oxidative metabolism even more. It’s a very common, but very serious, mistake to call thyroxine ‘the thyroid hormone.'”


Charles G. Hill, M.D. (“Preface,” The Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands, 1905) wrote …

“Following in rapid succession after the discovery of the function of the thyroid gland came the announcement that certain conditions of a grave and persistent character were due to the congenital or acquired absence or abridgment of the gland, and that these were relieved by engrafting a gland from a healthy animal into the peritoneum or other parts of the body, or by injecting hypodermically a glycerin solution of the gland of the sheep, and finally that the same purpose could be accomplished by the use of the fresh gland per orem [via the mouth]. Then came the discovery that the gland could be desiccated and used as any other drug with equal efficacy and with greater accuracy.

“Further research soon developed the fact that still other conditions, chiefly associated with arrested, retarded or perverted development, either of a physical or psychical character, but generally both constituting what the French have called ‘type Loraine’ have been found to be associated with an arrested development of the organ and could be relieved by the administration of the dried gland.

“It has been also demonstrated that certain functions, chiefly menstruation and gestation, demand an extra expenditure of thyroid secretion, which, if not supplied, leads to distinct symptoms, which are also relieved by the administration of the dried gland.

“Not resting here, earnest investigations have shown that it is a most potent oxidizer, with all the far-reaching effects of such an agent on the animal economy, and that it is a blood pressure reducer of seemingly a more exact and reliable character than any remedy heretofore found in our materia medica.”

    Hello Atom! The information in this blog and the other recent ones that you have written regarding the utterly miraculous benefits of the thyroid gland reminds me of your excellent blog entry “The Patient Got a New Skin”, where Dr. Byrom Bramwell used a thyroid extract to literally give a patient experiencing severe psoriasis “a new skin”. In theory, could finding the correct internal dosage of thyroid extract (or topical?) be used to help the body properly heal surface scar tissue such that it is completely “erased”?

      The thyroid needs support from the adrenals, liver, and other organs to improve skin health, but desiccated thyroid (by itself or otherwise) works wonders!

      I’ll be writing more about this in the future.
