Proteins are broken down in the body into amino acids and from these other
proteins, as needed by our bodies, are made.
If we do not have enough protein, the conversion of the storage thyroid
protein T4 [thyroxin] to the active thyroid hormone T3 (triiodothyronine)
goes wrong, and 'reverse T3' is produced, which inhibits thyroid performance
further. That brings disruption of mitochondrial metabolic processes
required for energy, for steroidal hormonal production, for sugar and
protein management - indeed, for avoiding stress in the whole organism.
There is a need to try to have more than muscle protein. Liver is of value,
in pate if not fresh (but read the label, there ain't much liverwurst in the
store with liver in it these days!). Whole shellfish contain the lot,
including the creature's thyroid, and valuable trace minerals. Boiling a
chicken with the thyroid still there in the throat, plus liver, gives
everybody a healthy soup of mixed protein and thyroid. Dependence on legumes
for protein also has problems, as this may impact on thyroid and
mitochondrial performance - go to http://www.infotrieve.com/freemedline/ and
do a Medline search for 'legume and thyroid'
