Understanding Thyroid Activity The pituitary gland at the base of the brain controls hormone production in your body. It makes thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which tells the thyroid gland how much T4 and T3 to produce.

Are you lacking vital minerals that are needed for energy production? Minerals such as magnesium, selenium, manganese, copper, zinc, and others are required in critical steps of the body’s energy cycles.

When it comes to solving your energy problems, no single test can offer as many clues as a hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA).
