Autoimmune reactions to the thyroid gland go largely undetected and cause many deleterious health effects including unexplained fatigue, weight gain, infertility and depression. There are an estimated 13 million Americans each year that have this treatable condition that go undiagnosed and needlessly suffer. And I predict that this number will rise dramatically, as we are exposed to more radiation and environmental toxins then ever before. Click here for a recent article on this topic published in the Journal of the Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine. I have given lectures for thousands of physicians over the years on ways to properly diagnose and treat this condition, and hopefully their patients are benefiting from the training. Our patients experience “miraculous” health benefits from proper treatment using prescription natural thyroid medication and simple diet and lifestyle changes. Their depression lifts, weight is no longer an issue, and energy levels rise.
Here’s to a healthy new you in the new year!

Millions of people worldwide suffer with infertility and recurrent miscarriage and in thousands of unexplained cases, hypothyroidism may be the underlying cause. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has warned that 1 in 10 Americans suffer from thyroid disease. Despite this staggering statistic, half of patients remain undiagnosed. Many of these people will be in their childbearing years. Click here to read more about a news release on this topic.
What most doctors do not know is that the timing of when you test for and treat thyroid in pregnancy is crucial in preventing miscarriage. The type of thyroid treatment is also essential to a healthy outcome.
I will be giving a talk in our medical practice on Wed January 29th at 6:30PM on integrative medical options for fertility, and how to test for, and treat, thyroid imabalances throughout pregnancy.
