Quit Smoking and Help your Thyroid

The thyroid is an incredibly important part of the body. It is responsible for regulating the metabolism–it keeps energy flowing through the body. Additionally, the thyroid produces hormones that help the body process other hormones in the body. The thyroid is a hormone hub and when it is not working disaster can strike, from chronic fatigue to massive weight gain.

Smokers who value their thyroids need to quit smoking. Tobacco habits damage the thyroid; in fact, smoking increases the occurrence of hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a medical condition that can lead to a variety of troublesome conditions:

  • Weight gain
  • Water retention
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • constipation
  • Infertility
  • Muscle cramps
  • Habitual sweating
  • Itchy skin
  • Brittle nails and hair

Given the information above, smokers must ask themselves: why smoke and run the risk of developing any of these symptoms by choice? There are plenty of people in the world suffering from thyroid problems who probably shake their heads in amazement that there others willingly damage their healthy thyroids by smoking.

Luckily, thyroid damage from smoking can be nipped in the bud by quitting. And since the scientific community has hailed smoking as a psychosocial habit, one very good method of smoking cessation is quit smoking hypnosis.

Quit smoking hypnosis involves re-programming smokers’ attitudes and beliefs towards cigarettes so that they are no longer dependent on them for emotional gratification or stress relief. This is quite often done by way of a hypnotherapist, but quit smoking hypnosis can also be done alone. Quit smoking hypnosis takes willpower and courage, but it is a most worthwhile endeavor: quit smoking hypnosis results in a mentally and psychologically healthier and tobacco free future.

Customer Testimonials

Hi Maureen, You worked your wonders on me on the 16th of January 2013 for smoking and guess what? I haven’t had a smoke or even felt like one! It is truly amazing after smoking for over 30 years I am no longer a slave to the smokes. I feel better (although I was a bit grumpy for a week or so) but that has passed, I can breathe better and my cough has gone. But food tastes so much better so I am trying to watch what I eat. I do get a craving every now and then and it goes as quick as it come…
