Custom Thyroid Program

The thyroid is the largest endocrine gland in the body.  It's main role is to regulate metabolism.  Thyroid function regulates heart rate, cholesterol, breathing, body weight, nervous system, menstrual cycle, muscle strength, hormone health and much more!!  It uses iodine from the body to produce T3 and T4.  The hypothalamus and pituitary glands communicate to maintain T3 and T4 so they aren't too low or too high. The pituitary gland releases TSH to maintain T3/T4 levels.  When values are too high, the pituitary releases less TSH, when values are too low, the pituitary releases more TSH.

Our custom thyroid program allows you to access custom compounded Pure T3 & T4 so you get the exact amount you need. (no pork, beef, gluten or lactose).

 

Symptoms associated with hypothyroid, elevated TSH and reduced T3/T4, are:

  • Fatigue

  • Intolerance to cold

  • Difficulty with weight loss despite efforts to lose weight

  • Dry, rough & scaly skin

  • Tangled, dry hair

  • Hair loss

  • Eye brow loss, particularly from the outer part of your eyebrows

  • Joint and muscle aches

  • Irregular periods

  • Depression

  • Trouble losing weight despite proper diet and exercise

  • Insensitivity to cold

  • Brittle nails

  • Cold hands & feet

    

Use of desiccated thyroid relieves symptoms and there are fewer side effects.  Restoration of thyroid health can help to restore other hormone imbalances as the thyroid is integral in hormone health.

 

We also deal with Hashimoto’s - Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune condition that is a common cause of hypothyroidism. When patients have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, the body mounts an immune reaction against its own thyroid gland tissue, leading to inflammation of the gland (thyroiditis).
