  • Anxiety or depression
  • Decreased mental function
  • Mood swings
  • Gastrointestinal problems (constipation, diarrhea, abdominal bloating)
  • Dry, brittle hair
  • Hair falling out in clumps
  • Loss of the outer 1/3 of the eyebrows
  • Cracked or brittle nails

  • Blood sugar imbalances
  • Chemical sensitivities

We have a program of care that is unique and designed specifically for people with hypothyroidism.  Rather than the standard of care which is to use drugs (hormone replacement therapy), we focus on the hidden root causes of what could be driving your problem in the first place.

The place to start is with doing a phone consultation with me so we can find out what’s wrong. We need to explore all of the parameters of your problem.  Once I am able to connect the dots, and figure out what is actually causing your problems, we can then design a plan of action to correct them.



Who is affected by thyroid problems?

Thyroid problems affect about 30 million Americans every year, with women being impacted more than men by a ratio of 8:1. 97% of the time, the problem is low thyroid (or hypothyroidism).

What is the cause of hypothyroidism?

Inside the United States, the #1 cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s Disease (an autoimmune disease). Outside of the US, the primary cause is iodine deficiency. Americans typically don’t suffer from iodine deficiency because we use a lot of iodized salt in our food.

What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?

Some of the symptoms of hypothyroidism include weight gain (even with diet & exercise), low energy, brain fog, anxiety & depression, nervousness & irritability, problems concentrating, poor memory, constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, distention, abdominal cramping, leaky gut syndrome, sleep disorders, dry brittle hair (that falls out), weak and cracked nails (in the fingers & toes), loss of the outer 1/3 of the eyebrow, infertility, abnormal menstrual cycles, dry-flaky or oily skin, and more. You don’t have to have all of these problems…you could have one, or more than one.

What are some of the triggers that cause low thyroid function?

Some of the triggers of hypothyroidism include anemias, blood sugar problems, adrenal issues (abnormal cortisol output), chronic inflammation, gastrointestinal problems, food intolerances, sex hormone imbalances, stealth infections, and chemical sensitivities. These can all be identified through proper lab testing.

What is your approach to correcting hypothyroidism?

After we identify the various causes of low thyroid (Hashimoto’s and/or triggers), the next step is to correct imbalances in the physiology via science-based nutrition (which combines lifestyle modification and the use of pharmaceutical quality supplements). Periodic retesting may be required to affirm clinical effectiveness.
