Hypothyroidism

Your thyroid gland produces a hormone that influence many different processes in your body and affects nearly every cell type.   A lack of thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism) is more common than other thyroid conditions.  And, according to the American Endocrine Society, over half of American women (>170 million total) may develop hypothyroidism at some point in their life. (https://www.endocrine.org).  Hypothyroidism is common in a large number of people, yet remains poorly diagnosed and treated, with more women affected than men.  

Some of the symptoms of hypothyroidism may include:

  • Fatigue

  • Constipation

  • Dry skin

  • Unexplained weight gain

  • Puffy face

  • Hoarseness

  • Muscle weakness

  • Elevated blood cholesterol level

  • Muscle aches and pain

  • Pain, stiffness or swelling in your joints

  • Heavier than normal or irregular menstrual periods

  • Thinning hair

  • Slower heart rate

  • Depressed mood

  • Impaired memory

One of the basic reasons that thyroid issues may be treated unsuccessfully is due to inadequate testing.  Your thyroid does not exist and function independently from other bodily organs and systems.  Other functional, environmental and nutritional factors such as gastrointestinal imbalances, oxidative stress, inflammation, environmental toxins and psychological stress may contribute to hypothyroidism.
