Many people have diagnosed thyroid issues, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and autoimmune thyroid conditions. However, many others go undiagnosed for months or even years.
With Traditional Chinese Medicine, the focus of thyroid management is using acupuncture, herbs and dietary changes to rebalance the yin and yang within the body. This might be with the goal of boosting energy in the case of hypothyroidism, or calming the mind and heart down when it comes to hyperthyroidism.
Thyroid issues can have different contributing factors, including stress, nutrient deficiencies, medication use and inflammation. Our naturopaths look at these potential factors, and use herbs, dietary advice and lifestyle suggestions tailored those to your specific needs.
