Finding Your Natural Hypothyroidism Remedy in Brooklyn NY

An underactive thyroid, also known as hyperthyroidism, is when the thyroid gland fails to produce an adequate amount of thyroxine. When thyroxine, the main hormone produced by the thyroid that regulates your heartbeat and controls your metabolism, is not producing at its proper levels can cause many of the body's functions to slow down. This imbalance often leads to various chronic and long-term health issues. 

Both men and women can be affected by an underactive thyroid; however, it tends to be most prevalent in women. 

Common Symptoms of an Underactive Thyroid

An underactive thyroid can present different symptoms, which develop slowly over time so that they may go unnoticeable, and sometimes even for years. Some of the most common symptoms of an underactive thyroid include:
  • Fatigue
  • Feelings of depression
  • Weight gain
  • Dry hair and skin
  • Sore or achy muscles 
  • Muscle cramps
  • Cold sensitivity
  • Constipation
  • Numbness and tingling in the fingers and hands
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Slow thoughts or movements 
Common Causes of an Underactive Thyroid for Finding Your Natural Hypothyroidism Remedy in Brooklyn NY

Common Causes of an Underactive Thyroid

There are various causes of an underactive thyroid; however, in most cases, it is caused by the immune system attacking the thyroid. When the immune system attacks the thyroid gland, it renders it unable to produce the correct amount of the hormone thyroxine. 

Another leading cause of an underactive thyroid is a medical treatment to the thyroid gland. Sometimes a side effect or complication can occur from surgery, radioactive iodine therapy, or other treatments that are performed to correct an overactive thyroid or thyroid cancer, which can damage the thyroid and affect its hormone production.
  • A lack of iodine in your diet can also cause an underactive thyroid. The body requires iodine to produce the hormone thyroxine; however, an iodine deficiency can limit its production. 
  • Some medications, such as interferons, which are sometimes used to treat cancer and hepatitis C, lithium, which is commonly used to treat bipolar and depression; and amiodarone, which is used to treat irregular heartbeat can also affect the thyroid. 
  • Pituitary gland issues can also affect the thyroid's hormone production. The pituitary gland regulates the thyroid; therefore, any dysfunction with the pituitary gland can affect the thyroid. 
  • Some viral infections can also increase your risk of developing an underactive thyroid. 
Natural Remedies for Underactive Thyroid

In most cases, a nutritional deficiency is to blame for your body's imbalance. Proper nutrition enables your body to get the essential nutrients it needs to function properly. When these nutrients are absent from your diet, it can have an adverse effect on your health. Your overall health and well-being can be improved by identifying the missing nutrients and replenishing them to restore your body’s chemical balance.

Nutrition Response Testing is a healing modality that involves analyzing the body utilizing acupressure points or neurological reflexes, both noninvasive techniques, to pinpoint underlying weaknesses, deficiencies, or imbalances in the body. Different sections on the body's surface coincide to the flow of energy to every tissue, organ, and function of the body. Nutrition Response Testing provides a method of monitoring your body and helps me to determine what your body lacks and how to remedy this need. 

Once I have determined your body's specific needs, the next step is to develop a natural Hypothyroidism Remedy, which can include lifestyle and diet adjustments, and potentially adding whole food supplements to your daily routine to restore your chemical imbalance on a cellular level. 

Typically, patients require multiple office visits to be retested and learn how your body is responding to the changes made to correct their health problems. Some patients experience amazingly fast results, while other discover new health dysfunctions that require additional attention. Either way, you will be on the path of improved health and wellness as we address these health issues and take corrective actions.
