Mood and Cognitive Disorders
Thyroid & Adrenal Dysfunction
If you struggle with low energy, weight fluctuations, or sensitivity to temperature changes, we recommend screening for thyroid dysfunction and adrenal fatigue. According to the American Thyroid Association, over 12% of Americans will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime. Many of these same individuals may experience symptoms of fatigue and difficulty handling stress due to over-taxed adrenal glands. Metabolism, immune function, mood and general health are all dependent upon optimal levels of thyroid hormone and cortisol.
Conditions treated include:
- Autoimmune thyroid disease
- Clinical and subclinical hypothyroidism
- Thyroid resistance
- Adrenal insufficiency and excess
