Has Thyroid Disease left you feeling hopeless?
If so, this workshop is for you!
Reason #1. Auto-Immunity is often overlooked or mistreated. This is VERY important if you are to get better.
Before you can even start correcting a suspected Thyroid Condition the following health priorities must be evaluated and corrected if identified. Here they are:
- Blood Sugar
- Gut and Liver Function
- Fatty Acid Metabolism
- Leaky gut
- Toxicity(heavy metal, mold, environmental)
- Nutritional deficiency of cofactors
- Brain & Nerve Function
Interestingly these 11 health priorities all play an integral role in auto-immunity which all too often initiates, aggravates and perpetuates a thyroid condition. Left unidentified you might try medicating your thyroid condition away for years and never solve the problem. For that reason every patient must be evaluated for these 11 areas before taking any further measures at treating their thyroid. Has your past doctors Looked at all of these?
Reason #2. “It’s All In Your Head.”
How many doctors have told you it is all in your head?
This directly translates into: “I don’t know how to help you. All of your lab tests are normal, all of the imaging you have had is normal.”
Your condition ACTUALLY IS ‘in your head.’ The problem is, it’s everywhere else too.
There are many causes of Thyroid Disease–one major cause is having a metabolic condition. YOU CANNOT DRUG YOUR WAY OUT OF A METABOLIC CONDITION.
Reason #3. Wrong Tests Ordered.
I see this every day in my office. Some unfortunate individuals will drag themselves in with stacks of blood work that they WASTED thousands on. The tests are usually a Complete Blood Count, Chemistry Panel, and TSH, Maybe a Free T3 and maybe a free T4. They may also have ordered a group of tests for Auto-Immune diseases such as the HLA-B27, ANA, etc…
Why? Because these are what your insurance would pay for. But this is not enough information to get you better. We must look at what is going on within you much more efficiently. What about Immune Panels to identify immune dys-regulation or active antigen status, Adrenal Stress Index, Food Sensitivity Panels and Stool Microbial Testing. We need all of these to make a sound clinical judgment.
Reason #4. Right Test Ordered–Wrong Results.
Medical doctors use lab reference ranges as a guide to determine whether or not you have a particular disease. Lab reference ranges are inherently inaccurate-they’re based on tests of unhealthy people!
Functional ranges, on the other hand, are based on optimal levels of healthy people. Doesn’t it make more sense to look at what healthy is, rather than what sick looks like?
The easiest lab reference range to use as an example is TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone). TSH is used to determine whether or not you have a thyroid condition. Traditional medicine uses the lab ranges of 0.5 to 5.5. In other words, if your TSH level is below 0.5, you have hyperthyroidism. If it is above 5.6, you have hypothyroidism. However, in order to have maximum thyroid function, your levels must be between 1.8 – 3.0. As you can see, this is a much narrower range.
You can be completely hypothyroid with a lab value of 3.5, yet your doctor says it is a “normal” test.
We use functional ranges, not lab ranges.
Reason #5. Drugs, Drugs Drugs!
Thyroid disease is CAUSED by a breakdown in your metabolism. It is a metabolic condition. You cannot drug your way out of a metabolic condition!
For about 10 percent of the thyroid patient population, drugs will help. For the other 90% taking drugs like Synthroid over a long period of time will make your thyroid function less and less efficiently.
Do you really want to continue to gamble with drugs and their ‘side effects’, both known and unknown?
Reason #6. No Dietary Changes.
Most doctors don’t know much about nutrition. If you go to your MD and ask him or her about gluten, they will run a celiac test on you (a VERY inaccurate test) and say, “You don’t have celiac, so eat whatever you want!”
The fact is, your condition is quite frequently being caused by what you put in your mouth.
The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is causing so much stress on your body that it is making you sick.
Reason #7. Taking Too Many Supplements.
Yep. I said it. Taking too many supplements can make your condition worse. THAT IS A FACT!
If your Thyroid Problem is caused by an Auto-Immune condition (your own body’s immune system, which is supposed to keep you from getting sick, actually attacks your own tissue and makes you sick),
In this type of case taking supplements can actually trigger an Auto-Immune reaction and make your condition worse.
THERE IS HOPE!
Your Thyroid Problem can often be helped without the use of drugs. And I have the testimonials to support it. If I accept you as a patient, no stone will be left unturned to get results.
I hope you found this information eye-opening……
