If you use makeup to hide a bruise, does that mean your injury has gone away? 

The answer is obviously no, but many people unconsciously take this approach when it comes to their health. 

They mask symptoms with medications instead of addressing the root cause of their problems. But when it comes to thyroid dysfunction, it's crucial to understand that true healing requires a different approach—one that goes beyond superficial fixes and delves into the root of the problem.

7 warning signs your thyroid is in distress

Thyroid dysfunction can manifest in various ways, impacting your physical and mental well-being. If your thyroid isn’t functioning properly, you may experience: 

  • Fatigue and lethargy
  • Weight changes
  • Mood swings and depression
  • Hair loss and brittle nails
  • Cold sensitivity
  • Digestive issues
  • Brain fog and memory problems

Unfortunately, these symptoms often indicate long-standing thyroid problems. By the time they become apparent, the underlying issues may have been brewing for years, sometimes even decades. 

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms above (even despite being on thyroid medication), the time to take action is NOW. 

Why the traditional medical model is road blocking your health: 

The traditional medical system, while valuable in certain aspects, falls short when it comes to addressing the complexities of thyroid dysfunction.

Here are some reasons why:

  • Limited Treatment Options: Conventional medicine often relies on pharmaceutical solutions, primarily synthetic thyroid hormone supplements. While they minimize painful symptoms, they are not addressing the root cause, especially when autoimmune disorders are involved.
  • Ignoring the Root Cause: Autoimmune problems, such as Hashimoto's, are common underlying causes of thyroid dysfunction. However, the traditional medical approach often fails to recognize and address these autoimmune conditions, resulting in incomplete treatment.
  • Unaddressed Gut Health: The health of your gut plays a vital role in overall well-being, including thyroid health. Conditions like leaky gut can contribute to autoimmune disorders, impacting thyroid function. Unfortunately, the traditional medical model does not prioritize addressing gut health as a fundamental aspect of thyroid healing.

9 critical thyroid tests your Doctor may have missed: 

To truly uncover the root causes of your thyroid dysfunction, it is essential to delve deeper. That's where a natural health practitioner can make a world of difference. Unlike the traditional medical model, a natural health approach embraces a comprehensive thyroid panel that goes beyond the limitations of the TSH test alone. By incorporating additional markers, we gain valuable insights that can illuminate the path to healing. 

These critical markers include:

  • T4 (Thyroxine): The backbone of thyroid hormones, responsible for regulating metabolism and energy levels.
  • Free T4: The unbound form of T4, ready for your body to utilize and maintain balance.
  • Total T3: The overall amount of triiodothyronine present in your bloodstream.
  • Free T3: The active form of thyroid hormone, readily available for your body's cells.
  • Free Thyroxine Index: A calculated value that helps determine the level of free thyroxine.
  • Reverse T3: An inactive form of T3 that can accumulate in certain conditions, hindering optimal thyroid function.
  • T3 Uptake: Measures the availability of proteins that bind to thyroid hormones.
  • TPO (Thyroid Peroxidase) Antibody: Detects autoimmune thyroid conditions like Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
  • Thyroglobulin Antibody: Identifies autoimmune thyroid conditions and thyroid cancer.

These comprehensive tests provide a panoramic view of your thyroid health, guiding us toward targeted solutions that address the underlying causes driving your symptoms. It's a holistic approach that empowers you to take control of your well-being.
