Do you suffer from depression, resistant weight that just won’t budge no matter what you do, brittle nails, rough dry skin, hair loss, intolerance to cold, difficulty sleeping and unrealistic fatigue?
How about elevated cholesterol or other heart disease risk factors, even though you eat the right foods, and exercise as you should? It might just be your thyroid…even if you have been told it's normal!
Far too often in our practice we see patients whose thyroid issues are under assessed, under addressed, leaving them frustrated and quite frankly, sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Thyroid related issues are one of the most common complaints that we work with, and we are excited to share with you our strategies and tools to fix your thyroid from a holistic point of view.
We are whole beings. Nothing in our anatomy is sovereign and our thyroid is no different. The thyroid has a huge impact on our physical body, and is majorly impacted by our emotional and energetic/spiritual bodies. A comprehensive, holistic thyroid assessment and treatment plan should address all of these aspects.
To properly assess and address thyroid issues, the whole person must be taken into account. This is inclusive of the symptoms they experience, as well as a comprehensive lab assessment to address the patient as an individual. A thyroid lab assessment should include at minimum:
TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)
Other “non-thyroid” but thyroid critical values including Vitamin D3, ferritin, cortisol/DHEA & sex hormones
Going beyond the physical, to unearth deeper root causes, we must look at the emotional aspects of our thyroid. The anatomical position of our thyroid is at the base of our neck, between the head and heart. This area represents our voice as well as the aspect of making choices. Suppressed feelings, not vocalizing what we feel, can turn into anger, rage, guilt and sadness which may impact the thyroid as well as your entire being.
The thyroid is part of the fifth energy center of the body, or fifth chakra, which governs communication, expression, and creativity. The fifth chakra is our basic right to speak and to hear the truth. Do you feel you can express yourself honestly and openly? If not, why not? Suppression of our voice and our truths can affect our thyroid and our whole body well-being.
