Your thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped organ at the bottom of your neck that releases thyroid hormone into your bloodstream to control your energy, metabolism, temperature, sleep, hair and nail growth, digestion and sexual function. If your thyroid gland produces too much or too little thyroid hormone, any or all of these functions may be disrupted.
It has been estimated that over 27 million people suffer with thyroid conditions in the United States, and up to half of them have not been diagnosed.
Are you gaining or losing weight without changing your diet or exercise routine? Feeling exhausted, moody, or suffering with brain fog or memory issues? Find that you're colder or warmer than the people around you? If your thyroid gland can't produce the proper amount of thyroid hormone your body requires, you may struggle with any of these symptoms or a combination of them:
Conventional endocrinologists often administer a standard thyroid hormone level test and develop a diagnosis based on what, decades ago, was labeled a “normal” range for thyroid function. Even if they were suffering with almost every symptom indicative of thyroid disease, many of our patients heard time and again: “There's nothing wrong with you. Your thyroid tests are normal.”
At One Agora Integrative Health we don't dictate what's “normal” for your body. For us, “normal” means symptom-free. If you are experiencing symptoms of a thyroid disorder, our goal is to discover the root causes behind these symptoms .
We will perform a comprehensive thyroid panel testing for: TSH, T3, T4, free T3, free T4, reverse T3 and antibodies. We will target each cause with the appropriate treatments until each symptom has been resolved.
Each thyroid is unique, and at One Agora Integrative Health, so is each treatment plan. To accomplish long term thyroid health, we tap all treatment options, from medication and supplementation, to medical nutrition and lifestyle management.
Our goal is to achieve your unique optimal level of thyroid hormone, using a customized variety of the following treatment tools:
Many conventionally trained doctors will tell you that once you start taking thyroid medication, you will be on it for life. However, we have seen our patients resolve thyroid problems completely because we test and target all root causes behind each patient's unique condition .
We also specialize in treating autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' disease by uncovering the source of your antibodies. Many conventional healthcare providers will never test you for antibodies.
At One Agora Integrative Health, we know it's important to detect antibodies because they are indicators of autoimmunity. Antibodies alert us to treat not only your thyroid, but to find and treat whatever is at the root of your immune system dysfunction. We know that antibodies can change, and we'll treat and monitor you until they do.
Compile your hypothyroidism symptoms checklist or your hyperthyroidism treatment requests - and we'll test and treat the root causes of your condition until you feel like yourself again! Call One Agora Integrative Health at (952) 234-5898 or contact us online today.
