Have Thyroid Issues?
At Aurora Natural Medicine, it is our mission to help you feel your best. We often see thyroid patients who say their traditional, often synthetic, thyroid hormone treatment has helped them feel better, but they are still experiencing some of the common hypothyroid symptoms.
Of the 20 million Americans who have thyroid disease, most have hypothyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland can’t make enough thyroid hormone to keep the body running normally. The thyroid hormone helps the body with energy, metabolism, and temperature regulation It also keeps the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should.
Conventional medicine uses a thyroid evaluation that is different from naturopathic doctors. You may have a struggling thyroid that is only revealed through naturopathic testing.
The two most common thyroid conditions we treat are General Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Symptoms include fatigue, difficulty losing weight, sensitivity to cold, as well as hair and nail problems.
We use nutritional supplements, as well as optimizing your thyroid dosage to help you get the most out of your thyroid replacement therapy. We work to get your body to a point where you may no longer need supplements.
We offer a natural form of thyroid hormone replacement instead of synthetic thyroid hormone replacement. Time and time again, our patients tell us they feel better on the natural hormone.
