Sluggish or Sluggish Thyroid?

By Dr. Jake Schmitz

Hypothyroidism is a common ailment that left untreated can cause significant fatigue. Read on to learn about some of the other symptoms and how Maximized Living doctors can help.

Are you feeling tired, moody, sluggish, or just plain exhausted? Do you feel like you don’t have the energy you used to have? Do you feel run down? Are you having difficulty losing that last 10 pounds? How’s your thyroid?

The previous symptoms are all suggestive of a lazy thyroid, or hypothyroidism. Approximately 10 million Americans suffer with hypothyroidism, and as many as 10% of the female population are said to have some sort of thyroid dysfunction! Even mild thyroid problems have dramatic effects on the body. Here are some symptoms associated with a lazy thyroid.

  • Sluggishness
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Pain, Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness
  • Muscle weakness

The one thing that all the above symptoms have in common is they are all caused by hormone problems. The thyroid isn’t at fault; it is just the modem for which the proper hormones are supposed to be produced.  We could blame the thyroid, and give it some medication, or cut a piece off with surgery, but that will just make the problem worse!!

A very helpful solution is: metabolic conditioning. High intensity exercise for short bursts has been shown to virtually eliminate the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism. In fact, all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are hormone-based. Therefore, it just makes sense that a primary part of the solution would be to affect the hormones first. That is where MaxT3 comes in. This program is scientifically designed to change your hormones from weak, fat storing hormones, into massive action, fat burning hormones instantly!  MaxT3 – Get In The Shape Of Your Life In Only 12 Minutes a Day!!
