Not Finding A Doctor Who Treats You As A Whole Person and Has A Complete Functional Approach
All of the other 6 Thyroid Treatment Traps, revolve around the Facts that hypothyroid symptoms are:
Caused from one or more of 24 functional problems that cannot be treated like a simple infection, broken arm, or disease. There is something wrong in your body, likely multiple functional shifts that can be found, and reversed, if the proper testing and treatment are done.
As varied as the areas of the body the thyroid hormones influence (Bone Development, Gastrointestinal Function, Liver Function, Gallbladder Function, Fat Burning & Muscle Building, Blood Sugar Regulation, Cholesterol & Triglycerides, Stress Hormone Elimination, Detoxification, Stomach Acid Production, Thermoregulation, Fertility (Female & Male), Inflammation Levels, Sex Hormone Balance)…in short – every cell in your body has th yroid receptors…But when you break it down to a functional diagnosis then hypothyroid symptoms Can Be Reversed.
Able to be reversed if the doctor takes a step back and looks at the big picture and solves the equation that interfere with the 10 steps it takes to make thyroid hormones and get them to properly affect body function.
And finally if you don’t take control and find a doctor who is going to put the pieces together for you, then you will continue to get the same treatment, and same poor results.
Now that you are armed with this knowledge, you can find out if the practitioner you see is considering the functional connections between the immune system, hormone system, neurological system, metabolic system, and gastrointestinal system, and whether they are running functional tests to tie it all together.
At the end of the day you want a FUNCTIONAL DIAGNOSIS, you don’t want a label that just describes your symptoms but doesn’t describe WHY you have those symptoms. You owe it to yourself to work with a doctor who is going to do that for you.
