Chances are if you are up on health research at all, you’ve
probably heard plenty about it.
The thyroid is a little gland that sits at the base of your neck.

case of myxedema (severe hypothyroidism). He’s stiff, weak, crusty-
skinned, and his hair looks like grey straw. He seems to have aged
20 years on account of the magical spell he was under.
At the 3:15 mark, observe how the spell is broken, and
how much different he appears immediately afterwards.
Theoden’s transformation closely resembles the actual changes
that occur once a person starts to do the right things for their
No wizardry is required, just a little lifestyle and diet work
and perhaps the right kind of supplementation.
When the treatment is right, transformation occurs almost
