Feedback from physicians and pharmacists in attendance at Dr. Cushman’s lecture last month on this topic was extremely positive (e.g. “This was absolutely the best explanation of thyroid problems I have ever heard; ” “Excellent presentation”)
New research suggests that 13 million Americans, twice the amount we previously thought, may have thyroid disorders and not know it. The thyroid gland is often ignored as the source of symptoms a patient is facing – from weight gain, to brain fog, hair loss, low energy and depression. The “healthy” range for thyroid test results is wide, and not all healthcare practitioners are aware of all components that require testing to screen for thyroid related disorders. This lecture will focus on comprehensive treatment strategies that work to resolve patient symptoms and address the underlying causes for thyroid disorders.
* Understand the causes, symptoms and risk factors associated with thyroid-related disorders
* Understand the Hypothalamic/Pituitary/Adrenal axis and the role it plays in thyroid health
* Learn about options for thyroid treatment: T4, T4-T3 mechanisms of action, dosage strategies, benefits and risks
* Learn new strategies for treating thyroid and underlying adrenal issues using an integrative approach to medicine.
