Thyroid Imbalance Symptoms
When LIVER pathways become blocked with inflammation, metals, chemicals, parasites, drugs, bisphenol A,  Candida, other types of fungus, flukes, parasites, growths, die off, etc.  then the toxins will not be able to move through the liver to get detoxified, thus toxins will build up in the liver, in the blood, and the fatty tissues.      A back-up of toxins will cause toxins to store themselves in fatty tissues of  endocrine glands and can disturb them. 

The liver and kidneys are necessary for proper thyroid hormone conversion. When the liver has too many toxins, hormone conversion is impaired. 
Numerous of these toxins are fat soluble and will go into into fatty tissues of the body where they may remain for years, if not for a lifetime. Fatty sites are the brain and the endocrine (hormonal) glands. The toxins landing here may result in symptoms of hormonal imbalances, such as breast pain, menstrual disturbances, adrenal gland exhaustion, etc. 
To re-balance hormones out of wack from toxins it may be very helpful to use detoxifiers for non flushable toxins Toxicity  and   Detoxification

*  When getting thyroid blood test it very often returns as "balanced" even when it is imbalanced. Therefore those who strongly suspect an imbalance it is suggested you do your research to find a doctor who can do a physical diagnosis as well as the blood test. It is very much worth the effort.
