Where do I begin? It is extremely important to find a practitioner who doesn’t just look at basic lab work and use conventional therapies. A thyroid problem isn’t just a thyroid problem it’s an entire body problem. Unfortunately so many people turn to medications to improve their symptoms. Because medications fail to address the true cause of thyroid dysfunction many people continue to suffer and in many cases their conditions worsen which can lead to more serious disease and illness. I recommend you take an approach that looks to correct the underlining cause of your thyroid problem.
