Thyroid PROBLEM in Allentown?

play

This video was made almost 10 years ago. 2 things haven't changed since then. Medial approach and Alternative care based on research approach.

Medical Approach

Many conventionally trained clinicians will simply run a TSH test and if TSH is high regardless of other findings, and without running a confirmatory TSH will prescribe synthroid or levothyroxine. If your TSH normalizes yet your symptoms remain, your considered a success. This approach has not changed in over 40 years.

Functional Medicine Approach based on research.

The one thing that hasn't changed in the functional medicine approach based on research is new research keeps on happening.  

What this means for you, unless you see a Functional Medicine doctor who keeps up with the latest research, you run the risk of wasting time and money trying to reach your health goal.

For example, the number one cause of hypothyroid is still an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto's.  It used to be thought "just fix your gut" and you will be healed.  While this may be true for many thyroid sufferers, we now know there are many non-gut related reasons for Autoimmune problems that just "fixing your gut" will  not help.
