Thyroid Conditions

If your thyroid function is low, consider Acupuncture and ATP Biotherapy with Dr. Bennett to boost your energy, improve sleep patterns, and help restore hormonal balance.

Your thyroid gland truly makes or breaks your energy levels, the ability to sustain a healthy weight, overall metabolic function, and even your emotions. 


Having primary hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis results in chronic thyroid gland inflammation. It often presents with fatigue, sensitivity to cold, weight gain, fluid retention, constipation, dry skin, hair loss, and depression.

Secondary hypothyroidism is more common and caused by a failure of the hypothalamus to regulate the thyroid gland or a lack of stimulating thyroid hormone from the pituitary gland.  

Common symptoms of low thyroid function

  • Severe fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Dry skin, brittle nails
  • Brittle hair
  • Itchy scalp
  • Hair loss
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Lower body temperature
  • Low libido
  • Puffiness in the face and extremities
  • Allergies that suddenly appear or get worse
  • Persistent cold sores, boils, or breakouts
  • Tingling sensation in wrist/hands
  • Memory loss
  • Fuzzy thinking
  • Slowness or slurring of speech
  • The appearance of a goiter


Your thyroid gland may be producing too much hormone due to a virus leading to a temporary increase in thyroid hormone levels. Taking too much thyroid medicine or ingesting too much iodine can lead to subclinical hyperthyroidism.

Common symptoms of high thyroid function

  • Frequent bowel movements
  • Fatigue or feeling tired
  • Feeling nervous
  • Unable to tolerate heat
  • Increased sweating
  • Increased appetite
  • Racing or rapidly beating heart
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Hair loss or balding
  • Hand tremor
  • Lack of menstrual periods in women
  • Sleep problems
