HORMONE OPTIMIZATION

Hormone Optimization

Addressing Your Needs

Thyroid

Under-active thyroid function is becoming more and more common and is generally under-diagnosed. The good news is that once diagnosed, it is strait-forward to treat with therapy that can alleviate your symptoms. The thyroid gland is in charge of regulating the body's metabolic rate. If the thyroid gland is sluggish or can’t produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones, the metabolism decreases, fatigue sets in and the person gains weight. A simple blood test can help determine if you could benefit from thyroid hormone optimization.

  • Fatigue

  • Constipation

  • Weight gain

  • Menstrual irregularities
