The thyroid is a small gland that is known as the master gland of metabolism. Almost all of your body’s systems and functions rely on the hormones produced and excreted by your thyroid gland. Proper thyroid function can be significantly hindered by stress, inadequate protein intake, high-carbohydrate diets, selenium deficiency, elevated cortisol, iodine deficiency, chronic illness, and some prescription medications
Sometimes, this involves a targeted lifestyle change, involving more exercise, more sleep, better diet, and/or dietary supplements.
In the event we determine that these steps will not produce the ideal results, we may recommend prescription medication or natural thyroid medication to achieve hormonal balance and enhance your overall sense of wellbeing.
