What Is Thyroid Cancer?

The Thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that is situated in the front of the neck. It is the Thyroid’s job to produce certain hormones to help with the different functions of the body. These include Triiodothyronine (T3), Thyroxine (T4), and Calcitonin.

T3 and T4 hormones are used to regulate the body’s metabolic rate, for example, in controlling the rate at which calories are burnt. The Calcitonin hormone is used to control calcium levels in the blood.

There are four main types of thyroid cancer:

  • Papillary Carcinoma –This is the most common form and accounts for around 6 out of 10 cases.
  • Follicular Carcinoma – This form accounts for around 15% of cases and occurs most often in older patients.
  • Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma – A more hereditary form of Thyroid cancer that accounts for around 5-8% of cases.
  • Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma – This is the rarest form and accounts for around 1 in 20 cases and usually occurs in those over the age of 60.

Although Thyroid cancer is a less common form of cancer, there are still some 2,700 new cases each year in the UK and over 62,000 new cases in the US. In recent years, Thyroid cancer cases have been rapidly increasing in the US. Approximately 2% of cases will occur in children and teens.

Causes And Risk Factors For Thyroid Cancer

  • Gender – For reasons that are not entirely known, thyroid cancer occurs three times more often in women than it does in men.
  • Age – Thyroid cancer most commonly occurs in women in their 40s and 50s. For men, it is more common for those in their 60s and 70s.
  • A Diet Low in Iodine – It is thought that those who have a low iodine intake are more likely to get the disease.
  • Exposure to Radiation – For this form of cancer, radiation is a risk factor and can often be the result of exposure to high levels of radiation from certain medical treatments and scans such as x-rays and CT scans.
  • Family History – Having a first-degree relative with thyroid cancer may increase the risk of getting Thyroid cancer.
  • Weight – Obesity and a lack of exercise are also thought to be risk factors.

The Budwig Approach

At the Budwig Center, we have helped countless people with all types of cancer, including thyroid cancer, to recover their health.   Our high success rate is due to our holistic approach.  Instead of only targeting cancer as a physical disease or instead of just removing a tumor, the Budwig Center looks at and corrects the four leading causes of cancer, which are:

  • Toxins – chemical and emotional toxicity
  • Pathogens – viruses, parasites, fungus, etc.
  • Compromised Immune System
  • Nutritional Deficiencies

We are using the time-tested original protocol of Dr. Johanna Budwig that she implemented back in the 1970s. Her success stories were so consistent that they became front-page headlines.  In addition, we use therapies and treatments that are compatible with Dr. Budwig’s philosophy but were not available to her at that time.
