Thyroid and Metabolic Conditions

The information you are about to read regarding Thyroid Conditions will, without a doubt, allow you to regain and restore your health, vitality, and quality of life. Thyroid Conditions are one of the most misdiagnosed and mistreated conditions on the planet today.  There has been an unbelievable increase in thyroid medication prescribed in the last 5 years.  Some publications estimate a 500% increase in medications given over this time. It is very important for you to know that there are 6 patterns of thyroid dysfunction in addition to Hashimoto’s disease. (Auto-immune thyroid) Shockingly, ONLY ONE OF THESE 6 PATTERNS RESPONDS TO MEDICATION! Statistically, this means 90-95 % of you are taking thyroid medications and they are having no effect. Your labs may look normal, but you still feel lousy to say the least.  In short, this is because the thyroid is not the cause of the problem.  The problem may be an auto-immune condition, sluggish pituitary gland, problem converting T4 to T3, etc. but RARELY is the Thyroid the problem.  I see this every single day in my practice and I think it is a travesty!  I have dedicated my life to learning and understanding these often misdiagnosed and mistreated conditions. As a result, I have developed strategic, schematic treatment protocols that are incredibly successful.

Our treatment is based on hundreds of hours in the study of functional nutrition, functional endocrinology, and functional neurology as well as blood chemistry. Our focus is to correct the cause of the problem to help restore proper function, not simply give medications that don’t work, and for the most part are unnecessary.

When evaluating the thyroid, it is important to understand what is routinely tested by medical doctors. The test involves testing TSH and T4 only. There are 7 other markers that MUST be tested. This is the first major mistake made in evaluating the thyroid gland. I recently spoke to a medical doctor and good friend, who frankly told me medical doctors will only test these 2 markers because no matter what, the treatment is still the same. Synthroid or Levithyroxine. This is the second major mistake when it comes to the thyroid gland. Remember, only one pattern of Thyroid dysfunction responds to medication and this pattern accounts for only about 5% of all thyroid sufferers.  The answers lie in the 7 other markers.  Finding a doctor to test them may be challenging; finding a doctor who understands how to evaluate and treat the 6 patterns of dysfunction is almost impossible!

So what should the protocol be?  The first step in the process is to find a health care provider that can (1) Know exactly what test to run (2) Once the tests come back, know exactly how to identify and then properly treat the different patterns of dysfunction.  Unfortunately, there is probably less than 1% of all health care providers who possess this knowledge.  Fortunately for you, I am one of them!
