Thyroid Treatment

Thyroid Treatment

The thyroid is the gas pedal of your hormonal system. It influences a surprising amount of bodily functions like metabolism, vitamin utilization, digestion and blood flow.

Because its effects are so wide ranging and so far reaching in the body, no magic pill is going to fix it. A balanced approach is needed.

According to research, more than 40% of the population suffers from some kind of low thyroid function. Older women who use medications or who suffer from other health concerns are most at risk of developing hypothyroidism.

If left untreated, more serious complications such as autoimmune diseases, impaired brain function, obesity, and chronic pain can occur. Thyroid disorders often go untreated for long periods of time because they go undiagnosed.

This is because modern medicine only looks at one or two markers, not testing for the full range of hormone levels, leaving individuals undiagnosed and susceptible to developing more complicated conditions. Even if your labs are normal, the symptoms you’re suffering could still be caused by your thyroid.

TREATING THYROID DISORDERS

At Lifesource Health Center, we treat thyroid problems naturally by addressing the cause of thyroid dysfunction, rather than chasing symptoms. Your body could be depleted from a poor diet and your thyroid might not have what it needs to function properly. Or you might not be converting thyroid hormone properly (a common problem most medical tests miss).

Using a combination of diet, lifestyle changes, and whole food supplements like Thyroid Food, we are able to develop a tailor-made plan to balance the hormones and help your thyroid start functioning the way it should.

When we approach thyroid treatment this way, our patients lose weight and start feeling better without having to go on medications or take synthetic hormones. We treat the body as a whole and get to the root of the problem so we can fix your thyroid quickly and naturally.

When your thyroid starts working again, you can expect a lot of good things to happen: weight loss, improved energy, better skin, thicker hair, and increased libido.

Process of Treatment

There are a variety of symptoms you could experience if you have a thyroid disease. Unfortunately, symptoms of a thyroid condition are often very similar to the signs of other medical conditions and stages of life. This can make it difficult to know if your symptoms are related to a thyroid issue or something else entirely.

For the most part, the symptoms of thyroid disease can be divided into two groups — those related to having too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) and those related to having too little thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism).

Your healthcare provider’s goal is to return your thyroid hormone levels to normal. This can be done in a variety of ways and each specific treatment will depend on the cause of your thyroid condition.

If your healthcare provider determines that your thyroid needs to be removed, there are a couple of ways that can be done. Your thyroid may need to be completely removed or just partially. This will depend on the severity of your condition. Also, if your thyroid is very big (enlarged) or has a lot of growths on it, that could prevent you from being eligible for some types of surgery.
