Low Thyroid Function – How to Boost the Conversion of T4 to T3


The hormones produced by the thyroid are essential for the health as they affect many other reactions and processes in the cells. The thyroid regulates the body’s energy use, the metabolic rate, the functioning of the heart and the digestive system, the temperature, the brain development, bones and muscles formation etc. Hypofunction of the thyroid gland leads to slow metabolism, brain fog, dry skin, changes in the menstrual cycle, hypertension, digestive issues and more. Mostly women suffer from hypofunction of the thyroid as usually it is caused by an autoimmune disorder Hashimoto’s. If you are at the early stages of the condition, it is easier to reverse the process with natural methods, without the hormone-replacement therapy.

Conversion of T4 to T3

When there are not enough thyroid hormones in the body which could be used by the cells, the hypothalamus sends a message to the pituitary gland via special chemical. Then the pituitary gland produces the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). The high levels of that hormone when reach the thyroid gland force it to produce thyroglobulin. Depending on how many iodine molecules it connects, it turns into T4 or T3 thyroid hormones. More than ninety percent of the hormones produced in the thyroid are T4 while the body needs the active T3 . In order for the thyroid hormones to be used by the cells, the conversion of T4 to T3 has to take place. The major organs involved in the conversion are the liver, the heart, the gut and the muscles. When you have a low function of the thyroid, you need to actually boost the conversion of the active hormone.

coMra therapy

The medication therapy with hormones as a replacement do not address the actual problem but only deal with the symptoms. With time, the thyroid gland will become lazier and you will need even more hormones from the outside. The healthy alternative is coMra therapy – a gentle and non-invasive method inducing the natural healing abilities of your body. The cold laser together with the magnets and the colorful diodes will stimulate the work of the thyroid gland but also will support the liver and the gut which are the places where the T4 to T3 conversion takes place. In the coMra user guide are all of the treatment courses which could also be combined for better results. You will need to apply coMra therapy daily until you see some improvement and then continue as it is described. With this natural method you will actual heal conditions like Hashimoto’s and other autoimmune disorders, digestive problems and will support the work of all the major organs.

What prevents the conversion

There are some factors which interrupt the conversion of T4 to T3 and make hypofunction of the thyroid gland even worse. Stress is definitely one of them as the high levels of cortisol prevent the T4 to T3 conversion directly. Gluten intolerance and leaky gut syndrome can disturb the conversion that takes place in the gut. All the inflammatory processes will affect the conversion negatively, so you need to deal with them in the first place. Conditions like depression and anemia are also among the factors which prevent the conversion. Dealing with the low function of the thyroid gland is complex but coMra therapy will support your healing and will help you reversing the condition and soothing the symptoms.
