Treating Thyroid Disorder

Finding thyroid relief requires a whole-body approach to identifying the problem and solving it. We put on our detective hats during our thorough initial exam and try to identify possible areas to focus our healing efforts.

When it comes to thyroid disorders, nothing is more frustrating than knowing something is wrong yet having your doctor tell you “all is well”.

The thyroid is a complex aspect of our body and when it begins to spin out of control, our entire body will begin to react.

Fatigue, hair-loss, brain fog, weight-gain, insomnia, insulin reactions-– just a few of the problems stemming from a dysfunctioning thyroid.

At Pro Active Chiropractic, we’ve spent years studying the complexities of the systems that run our bodies and we know that your thyroid problems aren’t happening in isolation. And a pill is not the cure– it’s merely a band-aid covering a much larger problem.

 

The Metabolism’s Impact on Your Thyroid

Finding thyroid relief requires a whole-body approach to identifying the problem and solving it. We put on our detective hats during our thorough initial exam and try to identify possible areas to focus our healing efforts.

But we don’t stop at just the thyroid-body connection. We live in a world filled with toxicity, poor nutrition and stressors that our bodies may not be equipped to handle. And if the thyroid is not functioning properly, these factors have a dramatic affect on our health and wellness.

Thyroid Disorders & Your Lifestyle

Did you know that your thyroid impacts your hormonal levels, which then dictates your ability to navigate stress? Or that your supplements may negatively impact your body if your thyroid is functioning improperly? Take a moment and explore these dietary issues for thyroid disorders.

The Thyroid-Brain Connection

We understand each individual patient is different. Your body, lifestyle, genetics and history are completely unique to you– and only you.

We don’t believe that one solution fits all, that’s just not possible.

But we do know that after our in-depth medical history during our first appointment, specialized testing based on your body if needed and some adjustments to lifestyle and diet– we will put you on the path to recovery.

Taking the First Steps

We understand that taking the leap towards a healthier life can be intimidating. Overwhelm is a common complaint we hear from our patients before we begin working with them. So many of our patients were let down by traditional medicine, overloaded by “Google Diagnosing” and simply lost as to where to start.

Please know that you’re not alone in this journey towards health. Our doctors and staff are here to be your support system and to guide you towards controlling your health once more.

During our initial exam, we’ll discuss your overall health, as well as your specific thyroid dysfunctions, in-depth. We’ll explore possible problem areas and ways in which we can help. Our follow-up exam will take you down the path to recovery– step by step. We’ll discuss your customized therapy plan and any concerns you may have about our work together.

Then we start walking towards your goal of a vibrant and healthy life. Take some time to through our thyroid resources and sign up for our thyroid newsletter to educate yourself on how to regain that healthier you. 

We want to help you live your life pain free.
