Treatments of thyroid conditions
This type of medication can help to diagnose and treat these conditions naturally and holistically. Generally, there are underlying conditions to cause the thyroid to not work properly. These can be: stress, toxicity, nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, and more. A thorough history, physical, and accompanying blood testing would help to guide the treatment, as well as evaluating lifestyle factors and nutritional history. Treatment would include supporting the thyroid and other organs with proper nutrition and supplementation, while addressing lifestyle issues that could be barriers to healing, as well as detoxifying the body of toxins that decrease its function. The overall approach will help the body achieve optimal balance to restore the thyroid to function.
