Natural Medicine For Thyroid Disorders
Our Powerful Blend of 100% Natural Therapies Works For All Types of Thyroid Problems and Symptoms, Including:
Why Patients Love Our Thyroid Treatment Program
It's Incredibly Safe
The therapies we employ, which include targeted supplements and simple lifestyle recommendations, along with Acupuncture, are proven to be safe and effective for the symptoms of Hypothyroid including fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, depression and others.
We’ve helped hundreds since 2005 to not only reduce and even eliminate symptoms of Hypothyroid, but in many cases patients have been able (with the supervision of the prescribing physician, of course) to reduce the amount of medication they take and, in some cases, even discontinue medication altogether.
Our experience treating lots of cases of various thyroid conditions since 2005 means we know how to get you feeling better quickly and efficiently. Patients often report significant improvement in symptoms within a few weeks, not months.
Because our treatment program strengthens the thyroid itself, along with all supporting body systems, the effects of the treatment last a long, long time. And, when symptoms do reoccur, they are typically quickly and easily corrected.
And we NEVER tell our patients to stop their medication. We are happy to work in conjunction with your prescribing doctor to ensure the best possible outcome for you based on YOUR goals and YOUR desires.
How Our Thyroid Treatment Works To Help You Feel Better Fast
Acupuncture Is Proven To Help Adjust And Fine-Tune Your Neuro-Endocrine Axis
Optimal thyroid function depends on a delicate balance between your Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Thyroid. Acupuncture has been shown in studies to have positive, lasting effects on the way the CNS and Thyroid communicate.
Acupuncture Also Opens And Regulates Microcirculation
Certain trigger points on the arms and legs influence the micro-circulation around the throat and thyroid gland. By bringing more fresh blood into the gland itself, it receives more nutrition, is able to detoxify itself more effectively and, as a result, functions at a higher level.
Targeted Nutritional Supplements Calm Inflammation And Feed Vital Nutrients To The Thyroid
We will ensure that we carefully choose the right supplements to reduce damaging inflammation and at the same time rapidly infuse the thyroid with critical nutrients that support healing and optimal function.
Simple Dietary And Lifestyle Changes Sustain Your Results
Having helped HUNDREDS overcome thyroid issues, we have developed protocols that are easy to implement and completely sustainable over the long-term. No hardcore elimination diets or 40-pills-a-day supplement routines. Once you feel the positive changes in your body, you’ll never want to go back to your old habits again.
Why Our Natural Thyroid Treatment Works So Well
We focus on how you FEEL - not just the numbers
While everyone else is looking at pieces of paper with numbers, and not listening to you – WE focus on YOU, your story, and how you feel.
Are you feeling more energy? Are you thinking more clearly? Are you starting to lose those unwanted pounds? Does your skin look healthy and vibrant? THAT is OUR focus.
We address the root cause
Our process includes finding and addressing the actual ROOT CAUSE of your thyroid problems. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Even those with a long family history of thyroid issues have experienced significant relief.
We keep it simple and results are quick
Feeling better and boosting your thyroid function does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear and concise way to attack the problem head-on, and patients often see improved energy and mood within a few WEEKS, not MONTHS.
Our approach ALWAYS includes stress reduction
Stress is often a key component in thyroid disease. We do not ignore this, we actually teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation which supports your body’s natural healing system.
Our Powerful Combination Of Natural Therapies For Thyroid Conditions
Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help it heal faster and with more lasting effects.
Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well-suited to treat hormonal conditions including thyroid, menstrual disorders, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.
Functional Nutritional Therapy
When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because the body’s key systems are optimized.
Relaxation and Stress-Reduction
When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.
The Process Is Simple
At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.
Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan
Once your consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of treatment.
Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root of YOUR thyroid issue.
Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution
You’ll return for your visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results:
You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous and hormonal systems) is rebalancing in a way that results in optimal thyroid function.
Transitional Care As Things Stabilize
Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 10-14 visits. Initially, you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.
We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.
Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your desire.
Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones
We pride ourselves on the fact that many of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.
So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.
Common Questions & Answers About Our Natural Thyroid Treatment Program
Does acupuncture hurt?
The needles are extremely thin, and they cause no pain because they are razor-sharp.
Will I have to keep coming forever?
The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way.
Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?
Many of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits. We can discuss this in more detail at your consultation.
Can natural medicine REALLY help my thyroid?
Absolutely. Your thyroid – and your body as a whole – is capable of healing itself, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this first-hand in clinic over and over again.
Will I have to do some kind of horrible, super-restrictive detox or elimination diet?
Absolutely NOT. Our program is all about setting you up to succeed. We find the 2 or 3 key leverage points in your diet and work on those. No impossible-to-follow meal plans or detoxes here.
How long does it take to see results?
People often feel a shift after the first several treatments. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.
What are my chances of success?
Results vary, of course. That being said, over 90% of our patients report improvement in thyroid symptoms. However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
