Hormonal optimization for one of the most important regulators in your body - the Thyroid Gland.

The thyroid hormones regulate vital functions like:
Central and peripheral nervous system function
The Thyroid Gland plays a major role in the metabolism, growth and development of your body.
Often overlooked and not fully measured, the thyroid is a culprit for many of us when we feel "off," gain weight, are slower at processing or even have aesthetic changes like thinning hair or dry skin. Thyroid hormones impact every cell and organ in our body!
How does the Thyroid Gland work?
The pituitary gland, which is in the brain, helps control the thyroid gland. The pituitary releases a thyroid-stimulating hormone (also referred to as TSH). These two important glands work together to regulate your hormones, manages your metabolism and play a vital role in development. The release of TSH into the bloodstream makes the thyroid gland release thyroid hormones. The first step in this pathway is T4, which then needs to become T3 to be used by the body.
There are some patients that have trouble with this conversion, and this is part of what we address in our program.
In traditional medicine, the complete Thyroid picture is not generally tested.
Traditionally, when you have your bloodwork done, the standard test is a Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), which only reveals signs of significant thyroid disease. Even if thyroid disease is not detected, the thyroid could still be under functioning, undetected. We often find problems that can be missed with just the typical screening test.

We'll dig beyond the TSH, to identify hidden imbalances that could be impacting you.
