Hypothyroidism develops from a dysregulated immune system. Some research shows 90% of thyroid conditions estimates it are autoimmune, so it’s imperative that we understand why your immune system is attacking your thyroid. We do this by advanced functional medicine lab testing. Not having healthy thyroid means that you have to reduce the underlying inflammation and this can be a challenge. In the near 15 years in practice, I can tell you it’s difficult just to tell a patient not to eat this and eat more of this instead. Or take this supplement and don’t take that because it’s going to vary from person to person. That’s why we do the laboratory testing and it’s in the end about uncovering the reasons for their thyroid issues beyond just immune dysregulation and then setting about correcting the failure mechanisms and imbalances.
Increased weight, fatigue, and hair loss are the body’s way of saying something may be wrong with the thyroid. If left untreated, a thyroid condition can lead to chronic and debilitating symptoms.
Because we’re committed to helping the local community, we’re offering a free consultation. This is normally valued at $97. We have helped many people with thyroid symptoms using safe, natural and NON-SURGICAL methods.
We combine Chinese medicine with advanced labs and functional medicine. This combination is extremely profound on the thyroid.- Dr Bennett
