Thyroid

“Every cell in the body has receptor sites for thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones are responsible for the most basic and fundamental spect of physiology, the basal metabolic rate. Lack of ideal thyroid hormone leads to a global decline in cellular function of ALL bodily systems. The thyroid is the central gear in the complex web of metabolism and extremely sensitive to minor imbalances in other areas of physiology. An astute clinician should always ask what else is going wrong, as a result and cause, when they indentify a thyroid imbalance.”

wilmington nc thyroid specialistDisorders for thyroid function are very prevalent in the US population and continue to increase every year. Thyroid medications ( especially Synthroid), have been on the top 10 most prescribed medications for decades. The traditional health care model of managing thyroid disorders is an outdated model, dating back to the 1960’s. Hypothyroidism, the most common cause of thyroid dysfunction, followed by hyperthyroidism goiter, and thyroid cancer.

The thyroid gland is the most common site for autoimmune attack, and often times the first sign of the developement of an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune thyroid disease is called Hashimotos disease. Hashimotos disease is the mechanism for hypothyroidism in 90% of the cases in the US. One study has found that up to 7-8% of the total population have antibodies against their thyroid. Unfortunately, these patients have their thyroids slowly destroyed year after year, until they have destroyed enough of the gland to be diagnosed as hypothyroid. These patient’s battle is NOT with their thyroid, its really with their immune system. Once again, the unfortunate consequence of the antiquated traditional health care model, is a life time of suffering.

This is where we are different!

You see, we get it. We understand that unless the immune system is modulated, a patient will continue to suffer, year after year. We undergo a comprehensive approach, unlike anything your “real” doctors have done. We have very specific tests with high sensitivity to help us discover any underlying causes for your particular dysfunction. It could be a food intolerance, a gut infection, blood sugar dysregulation, anemia or a host of other issues. If the underlying cause is not discovered, you will never achieve optimal wellness.

So why hasn’t your doctor done these tests?  Simply put, most insurances do not cover these tests, so they dont order them. They play in the insurance model game. We do not let insurance companies dictate your care.

There are 23 sites of thyroid metabolic defects that start with the hypothalamus-pituitary-axis and end with the receptor sites. Each of these imbalances can be clearly identified and are related to cytokines, medication, nutrient deficiencies and hormones. Which one is causing your misery? We will find out!
