Basic Facts About Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is a direct result of having an underactive thyroid gland. To put it simply, hypothyroidism is a kind of condition that occurs whenever an individual is unable to produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones. This type of condition is actually very common.

Recent studies have shown that no less than 25 million Americans suffer from some form of thyroid problem. These studies have also come to the conclusion that it is most common among older women. Hypothyroidism has effectively become a grave problem. However, half of those suffering from this condition are completely clueless to what it is and what it can do to their general health.

The Thyroid Gland and Your Body’s Metabolism

The thyroid gland is that particular organ found in the middle of the person’s neck. It functions as the principal organ in charge of the body’s metabolism. It greatly affects how the rest of the body functions. If your thyroid is not functioning as it should, then you will most certainly be facing a few problems. Read the rest of this entry »

The Pursuit of Olf-Ection, Insights to Spa Projects

When skimming a magazine recently, I caught an enchanting inhalation of Dolce & Gabbana’s “The One” cologne wafting out from one of the tear sheet advertisements. Delicious. It reminded me of the strong power of aroma. A major playing card in the spa industry. The ad had me at the instant scent and sensation, coupled with the tanned model looking back at me. I’m sold!

Within a spa, creating a beautiful cocoon to house a spa, without attention to detail that includes infusions to entice the eyes with texture, shadow, light and movement. Or to awaken the olfactory senses with cool scents, warm scents, scents that are motion and color… it’s like an exotic wrapping around an empty Christmas box. A big fat disappointment. Sigh.

With so much to do in any spa project development, it’s hard to know where to begin. I can’t tell you how many clients I’ve talked to that have a desire and passion, with no idea where to start.

Since smell is potentially the most powerful sense that we have, let’s establish a beginning with that. The enjoyment of taste is 95% based on smell. Our brains include a direct link to smell, producing intensive immediate reactions. Many of them linked to memory. Read the rest of this entry »

Guide to Hypothyroidism


The thyroid gland produces two different types of hormones, the iodothyronines and Calcitonin. While calcitonin plays a huge role in our bodies, it will be the iodothyronines that we will focus on as they are the major players in thyroid disorders. So, what are the iodothyronines and what functions do they serve in the body?

There are two different kinds of iodothyronines (which will be referred to as “thyroid hormones” from here on out) and they are thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These two hormones are absolutely essential and necessary for body development, growth and energy metabolism among other things. Thyroxine (T4) is what is known as a “prohormone” meaning that on it’s own, it has little to no effect and must be converted in the body to the biologically active form which is triiodothyronine(T3). There are many steps that go into the process of producing these thyroid hormones in the thyroid gland. It can certainly get confusing and complicated but most important parts to understand about the process are:

· It is essential to have the necessary amounts of iodide available in the body (iodide is a single ion whereas iodine is a compound). Not having the necessary amount of iodide in the body can lead to a lack of hormone production and an enlarged thyroid gland, also known as a goiter. Read the rest of this entry »

Does Asthma Cause Claustrophobia?

I’m asthmatic and have claustrophobia. Does being asthmatic necessarily mean you’re going to suffer, also, from claustrophobia? Maybe. I read about this in Prevention magazine. It seems that recent studies show that there is a striking connection between asthma and psychological problems, i.e. depression and anxiety. If you’ve ever been in a situation where you have not been able to breath, it’s not hard then for the mind to extrapolate, “small place, no air.” In the last year or so I’ve, unfortunately, had some anxiety attacks brought about by asthma. For example, during our trip to Russia I acquired some bug. When we returned, I was sick for a good 6 weeks with coughing, sinus problems etc. So the coughing exacerbates the asthma. I’m going to my allergist, taking all kinds of stuff and still having trouble breathing. One night I wake up in a sweat and am gasping for air.

I tried not to panic. I was able to slow my breathing down and work my way out of it. But it was scary as hell. I can not imagine what it would be like to have a fully blown panic attack. But, back to asthma and claustrophobia. I’ve tried to overcome the phobia. A few years ago while in Rome (oh, another vacation dropper), we decided to go to the top of St. Peter’s Basilica. Now, if you’ve ever been in these old churches, you can only surmise that the people who built them must have been 5’5″ and 150 pounds because all of the walkways are very narrow and low. I decided to give it a try (my mantra is that if God put it on this earth, I want to see it). It was July and peak tourist season. As we begin to ascend, you’re walking in a spiral. So, you really only see the people’s butts in front of you. There are 100′s of people in front of me and 100′s behind me. Read the rest of this entry »
