Autoimmune Thyroid Disease On the Rise

February 3, 2014

Thyroid_systemAutoimmune 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!

Iodine and Radiation

March 17, 2011

We are receiving a flurry of questions from patients who are concerned about potential radiation exposure from the devastation in Japan.  Please know that the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has said that harmful levels of radiation are not expected in the United States. At this time it would be wise to test for levels of iodine (we use a urine test at our medical practice) and if warranted and safe for you, based on your test results, increase your intake of iodine-rich foods (kelp noodles, sea vegetables, wild caught salt water fish), and supplement with Thyrodine Complex at 1 capsule per day, or every other day, depending on your starting iodine levels.

In health and healing,

Dr. G
