Thyroid Care - It is hard to find the right care and treatment for your thyroid health because doctors look at one aspect of the thyroid and not the whole picture. A comprehensive program could be right for you. This includes blood and sometimes gut tests, reflex testing with the Thyroflex, supplements, medications and lifestyle changes. Using a holistic approach is the key to a healthy thyroid.
Gut Health - The gut is considered to be the foundation for great health. Making improvements to the digestive system has been scientifically shown to improve skin health, immune function, mood, and energy levels. Improving nutrient absorption, eliminating unhealthy pathogens and replenishing good bacteria are the goals to restore a healthy digestive system.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy - Hormones are so important to overall health in the body, it can be difficult to function properly if your body is not producing enough of them. Testing, herbs, and supplements along with bioidentical hormones are used to restore vibrant health. Bioidentical hormones are compounds that have the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones produced in the human body.
