Lack of energy, thinning hair, brittle nails, and the inability to lose weight are common symptoms that may indicate that you have a low thyroid condition. On top of that, a general sense of feeling unwell is also common among low thyroid sufferers.
Prescription therapy alone is often not enough to combat hypothyroidism. But when we dig deeper, we can locate the cause of low thyroid and discover that autoimmunity is present. This autoimmune problem, also known as Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroid, is the primary cause of thyroid symptoms in the U.S.
We exercise a whole-systems approach to understanding your condition completely before recommending a specific course of treatment. We assess our patients’ health by looking for anemia, dietary triggers, blood sugar imbalance, and hormone and stress levels to determine the most effective treatment combination for each individual.
The Problem of Low Thyroid
Symptoms of low thyroid, or hypothyroid, are so slow to appear that it’s easy to dismiss the fatigue, weight gain and vague aches and pains as effects of stress or the natural aging process. However, left untreated, thyroid conditions get worse, causing more and more complications such as memory loss and depression. Because the thyroid gland is critical to so many functions in your body, you need it to be working properly for a good quality life.
Hashimoto’s disease is easy to misdiagnose, even though it’s the most common effect of low thyroid in the U.S. The root cause is the immune system attacking the thyroid, disabling its ability to function correctly. And when the thyroid gland isn’t fully functioning, most traditional treatments are focused on getting it back to normal. However, it’s in treating the root cause, the immune system, that the thyroid can be restored to proper balance.
What causes the immune system to attack the thyroid? Unfortunately, our modern living conditions are much to blame – stress, lack of regular exercise, diet, processed foods and environmental toxins are all contributors. The good news is that many women and men are seeing the damaging effects improve. With a combination of available treatments, we’re here to support you on your journey.
