It doesn’t matter how many candles are on a woman’s birthday cake, she’ll still always be that Girl in the Mirror.

One of the most frustrating aspects of hypothyroidism is the toll that it takes on your physical appearance.

Women will put up with extreme fatigue, weakness, joint pain and muscle aches, but when it finally affects their appearance in the way of dry skin, hair loss, brittle nails and weight gain, these symptoms of hypothyroidism motivate them to action. If the fatigue and aching aren’t enough, the addition of any of these physical symptoms just adds insult to injury!

Much of the reason behind symptoms of hypothyroidism such as dry skin, hair loss, and brittle nails is due to the fact that low thyroid decreases circulation. In an attempt at damage control, your body sends blood to the most vital organs such as your internal organs and brain. Of course, this means that blood flow to your extremities is diminished resulting in skin problems, hair loss, or dry and brittle hair and nails.

This is also the reason why individuals with hypothyroidism often have cold hands and feet. Your body also doesn’t have enough energy to heat the cells of the body spurring metabolism, hence the weight gain. All the energy and resources your body can spare are being funneled to the most necessary organs for sheer survival.

Meanwhile, other organs are literally left out in the cold.

Hypothyroidism has been tied to such skin disorders as acne, impetigo, cellulitis, eczema and psoriasis. Often nails are ridged and brittle. Regarding hair loss, thinning hair is common especially among women with hypothyroidism along with the loss of the outer third of the eyebrows.

The addition of desiccated thyroid can restore your metabolism to a healthy state as well as remedy such pesky symptoms as dry skin, brittle nails and hair. Hair loss is stemmed and in many cases restored.

If you have the symptoms of hypothyroidism, consider that maybe you just need the fire in your cells stoked with a little-desiccated thyroid. What if you could regain your vitality both internally and externally?
