Are you still suffering from your thyroid conditions? Are you frustrated by being told that your lab tests are “normal”? Most importantly, would you like to have your old life back?
If you’ve found your way here, you are most likely still looking for answers to your thyroid gland disorder. If you are still having the same symptoms while on your medication, or just looking for a holistic, natural method to manage your thyroid disorder, you’ve finally found a place that will truly help you.
If you are you suffering from the following symptoms, please read on:
- Tiredness and fatigue
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Depression and anxiety
- Heart palpitations
- Inward trembling
Think of it this way: your body is like your car, your blood is like your oil and your brain is like your motor. What happens to your car’s motor if you don’t change the oil for three years, five years or even ten years? That’s right—your motor becomes damaged and the car stops working.
I am the only doctor in the Tustin area that is using both neurological and metabolic therapy to help patients with thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
What we do is work with patients neurologically to rebuild that car motor. The brain is the most important organ in the body, and it can weaken. In the medical profession, this is called “brain degeneration”, and it’s what you see in dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients. The bottom line? If your brain is not working in harmony with the rest of the body, you will continue to have symptoms.
But if we only deal with the neurological side, all the hard work will be lost. We need to look at all organs in the body, because the body only functions when everything is working cohesively. For instance, if the adrenal glands aren’t working properly, liver congestion or a bad gut, do you think that will affect your thyroid gland? Absolutely.
The medical doctors are great at working with you when there’s a crisis or emergency, but few are great at getting your body functioning optimally, and that’s where practitioners like me come in. We go in depth to find out what’s happening in your body by running a full blood panel, which gives us a great deal of information. For instance, 90% of our patients have an autoimmune disorder, which means the body is attacking itself; Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder, as is multiple sclerosis (MS), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus and Celiac/Crohn’s disease—it all comes down to which tissue the body is attacking.
It’s like what happens if you pour gasoline on a forest fire; it will consume everything in its path. So, if no one is addressing your immune system and just giving you medication for your thyroid gland, yet you’re still suffering from the symptoms—that’s a huge piece of the puzzle in finding the solution to your thyroid problems.
We also look closely at the adrenal and pituitary glands in regards to the thyroid glands (more on that soon in another blog!), and look at the intestinal tract for bacteria, parasites, mold and yeast. Why? It’s simple: your gastrointestinal system is 60% of your immune system, and if you have a bad gut, your body just CAN’T HEAL. We need to know if we need to start with your gut to support your immune system that will then support your thyroid.
We’re not done yet. We also run genetic testing to look for food sensitivities and their cross reactive foods (those foods your body will still react to, even if you have stopped eating the food you are sensitive to). If you’re sensitive to certain foods, it can be making your condition worse! We will also go into these in more detail in future blogs. Managing your condition from a dietary standpoint is essential, otherwise the condition will never improve.
After reading the information in this blog, you should be able to see what makes us unique from other heath care practitioners: thorough, proper testing in all aspects of your body.
If you are tired of the Russian Roulette system of medication after medication, if you’re tired of living with your symptoms or if you’re seeing them increase, please contact us immediately to schedule a consultation, (714) 731-7680.
