Thyroid gland is a regulator of all body functions.

The hormones it secretes are essential to all growth and metabolism. We can analyze your symptoms and conduct tests to identify Thyroid issues.

Thyroid hormones are the master regulators of our metabolic rate.

They influence every cell, tissue and organ in the body. These hormones regulate: metabolism, organ function, heart rate, cholesterol levels, body weight, energy, muscle contraction and relaxation, skin and hair texture, bowel functions, fertility, menstrual regularity, memory, and mood.

What causes hypothyroid?

Hypothyroidism is a complex disorder with numerous different causes, some of which include:

  • Thyroid gland fails to produce enough hormone, either due to an autoimmune response against the gland, or other problems with the gland itself
  • Failure of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus to send the signal to the thyroid gland instructing it to produce more hormone
  • Failure of free T4 to convert to active T3
  • Imbalance of adrenal hormones, cortisol and DHEA
  • Toxic levels of mercury
  • High levels of estrogen (estrogen dominance)
  • Consumption of excess soy based foods and beverages
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Medication interactions

Diagnosing Thyroid Disease

  • Blood test: Thyroid panel: TSH, Free T4, FreeT3, Reverse T3, Thyroid antibodies
  • Blood test to determine any associated nutrient deficiencies
  • Adrenocortex stress profile
  • Dried urine iodine
  • Basal body temperature charting

Typical Thyroid Treatments

  • Nurtaceutical intervention to address any nutrient deficiencies
  • Natural hormone replacement therapy
  • Botanical/Herbal supplementation
  • Low Dose Naltrexone Therapy (if labs indicate elevated thyroid antibodies)
