How many of you have gone to the Doctor tired or anxious and are given Prozac? Well you are not deficient in Prozac – that is not a cure. Or have you gone in with weight gain and are told to diet, even though you are eating green, lean and clean already? We see this happen to women all the time. Often times Dr’s don’t dig deep enough to find the proper imbalance.
When a thyroid condition is found most treatments fail, not because of who they’re are seeing, it could be an endocrinologist or a natural doctor, but because of the approach and sequence of care. How many of you have been dealing with thyroid issues for over a year? 5 Years? 10 years? You may have even been put on a medication such as Synthroid and are still battling weight gain, still tired, irritable, and have thinning hair? Often times once you are put on a medication you have been left on it. Which is called controlled – not balanced. And you still feel bad. Still, have weight gain and all the other issues. This is a passive way to treat the body.
Digging a little deeper and running a more specific thorough series testing is often needed to find the correct starting point for the sequence of care needed.
The testing we run in our Austin, Texas office includes a thorough Thyroid Panel.
