The thyroid gland is of a beautiful dark red color. The thyroid has two lobes that the endocrinologists know very well. The biologists are amazed when observing these two beautiful lobes wisely united by a wonderful isthmus. Behold here the perfect triangle.
The two lobes of the thyroid gland are found situated exactly at each side of the Adam’s apple.
The thyroid gland is vulnerable to two fundamental sicknesses: hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism; the first one is characterized by too much secretion, the second by too little secretion. Hyperthyroidism can be cured by surgery. Hypothyroidism cannot in any way be cured by surgery. Hypothyroidism is only possible to cure when the patient is given thyroxine (a principle of secretion of the thyroid gland). In reality, thyroxine is an iodine compound that is very important in medicine. Thyroxine is intimately related with all the metabolism of the physical body.
When the patient suffers hyperthyroidism, the excess thyroxine increases intensively the combustion of foods. The result is an increasing rhythm of normal respiration and heart rate.
In hypothyroidism, the metabolism becomes slower. If a child were to suffer hypothyroidism, body and brain development would retard horribly. When hypothyroidism is present in an adult, he becomes mentally weak. His nails and hair grow in a slow and abnormal form. Any physical strain fatigues him terribly and his skin becomes dry, flaky, and somewhat bulky.
Biological iodine disinfects the whole organism. Without the biological iodine of the thyroid, our human organism would not be able to live.
The Rosicrucian doctors assure us that Venus influences the thyroid gland and that Mars influences the parathyroid glands. The famous Dr. Arnold Krumm-Heller, professor of medicine at the University of Berlin, assures that between Venus and Mars there is a terrible struggle that repeats itself between the thyroid and parathyroid glands.
On a certain occasion, an old farmer who did not know how to read or write assured us that he had cured himself from the sickness of goiter by applying to himself a plaque of lead. The farmer told us that he made two small perforations with the purpose of tying a thread or cord. With that cord he tied the plaque around his neck, leaving the plaque over the root of the goiter. The farmer assured us that during the three months he wore the plaque, he was cured radically. He also mentioned to us that some family members also cured themselves with the plaque of lead.
Metal therapy is practically in an embryonic state. There is no doubt of the great possibilities of metal therapy.
We knew South American peasants that utilized salt and saliva, applying it during breakfast as the only remedy for a goiter. They mixed these two elements during the waning of the moon and then applied it. This was their only remedy to cure such an ugly sickness. Biology is willing to study profoundly all these therapeutic systems of the peasants, because we are convinced that many of those formulas that our grandmothers used saved the lives of many illustrious personages.
The yogis of India state that the root of the laryngeal chakra comes out of the thyroid gland. The great doctor of the Hindustan Sivananda assures us that the laryngeal chakra has sixteen lotus petals.
Many Western scientists laugh at what they do not know.
The Asian sages state that there is a super-ear that is capable of registering the waves from the ultra. They call that super-ear “clairaudience.” The laryngeal chakra is the center of clairaudience. This demonstrates to us the intimate relationship between the thyroid gland and the mind. If the thyroid gland and the mind are found so closely interrelated, why not admit that the Asian theses on the chakra of the thyroid and its conceptual synthesis is valid? The sages of India state that they acquire conceptual synthesis by developing the laryngeal chakra.
Physics accepts the ether. The Hindustani state that ether is but a condensation of the tattva akasha. The great Asian yogis state that matter is the condensation of the ether, and ether, at the same time, is a condensation of the tattva akasha, in which they find the ultimate synthesis, the primordial root of matter. The Hindustani consider the akasha to be the primordial sound, and that its instrument in the human being is the creative larynx.
Dr. Sivananda assures us that with the development of the thyroid chakra, we can control akasha, and we can achieve life during the profound night of the great pralaya.
According to Dr. Sivananda, eminent endocrinologist and Hindustani yogi, by awakening the chakra of the thyroid gland, we achieve clairaudience. If one submerges into daily Meditation with the purpose to hear a distant friend, then during the period of sleep one would be able to hear his words. With inner Meditation, one can awaken clairaudience.
The secretions of the endocrine glands are intimately related with all the order and control of the autonomous nervous system of the so-called involuntary muscles. The glandular secretions govern, with great physiological-cosmic wisdom, all the wonderful metabolism of the physical body. The endocrine secretions control the growth and development of all the grand cellular community.
The secretions of the endocrine glands control the characteristics of sexuality.
The thyroid gland has an auric radiation that is truly wonderful.
