Going Through Treatments That Are Hyper-Focused On Each Individual Symptom
If you were diagnosed with thyroid issues more than a year ago, then it is likely that you have already experienced this. As part of your symptoms you may have cold hands and feet for example.
So your doctor sends you to a specialist for circulation… thinking that the source of the problems are your hands and feet. Most likely the specialist did very little, if anything to help your cold hands and feet.
The next symptom is maybe heart palpitations, an irregular heart beat. You get sent to a heart specialist to do heart tests. They may give you a medication that controls heart rhythm. Again this is treatment that is aimed at a particular symptom, and is totally ignoring the fact that there is something more… something more connected going on inside your body… and this approach will not create true and lasting change or healing for you.
Avoid falling into this symptom treatment trap, and find a doctor who will take a WHOLE person approach. Thyroid issues are a functional breakdown in multiple body systems, and until someone is willing to take a step back, and look at everything, all at once, you are going to suffer at the hands of ineffective treatments.
