Thyroid health

Thyroid disease is very common today with more than half of the people with thyroid disease in the U.S. having hypothyroidism due to an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s disease. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis leads to the destruction of the thyroid gland preventing the thyroid gland from producing adequate thyroid hormone called hypothyroidism.  The enlargement of the thyroid gland may be the first indication of Hashimoto’s.  In some instances, an increased TSH level accompanied by a “normal” T4 and T3 may suggest the beginning stages of Hashimoto’s.

Many doctors prescribe thyroid medications that may provide symptom relief initially.  However, this treatment does not address the underlying reasons for the faltering thyroid and symptoms usually persist.  Bacterial and viral infections, hormonal imbalances, toxins from the environment and medications are well-established triggers that contribute to the development of Hashimoto’s in people who are genetically predisposed.  I will help you uncover the reasons for the malfunctioning thyroid and make recommendations that can bring long-lasting symptom relief and improved health.  Dietary and life habit adjustments along with supplements can help re-establish a healthy immune system and support the thyroid balance.  Do you suffer from?
