Most of the patients I consult with have a few things in common:
- They were diagnosed with hypothyroidism at some point in their lives.
- They take some form of thyroid hormone replacement.
- They continue to experience some degree of thyroid symptoms despite conventional treatment.
A research study published in December 2012 sheds some light on a phenomenon we see quite often …
A patient has elevated TSH but normal T4 and T3.
If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I have revealed the fact that the number-one cause of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune thyroid . Based on the number of medically managed hypothyroid patients who have sought my care for their numerous persistant health challenges, thyroid hormone replacement alone does not address the underlying cause of Hashimoto's (autoimmune thyroid). Too many patients who only utilize thyroid hormone replacement therapy may never feel the way they truly desire. It's a shame and that's why I am dedicated to helping patient's with autoimmune thyroid improve their health with my unique blend of natural methods.
