The thyroid is a small endocrine gland located in the lower part of your neck whose function is to secrete hormones that play a key role in regulating heart rate, body temperature, metabolism and a reaction of the body to other hormones.
When your thyroid does not product enough hormones and is classified as underactive, you may develop hypothyroidism symptoms leading to widespread health problems.
We are an integrative healthcare facility that is experienced and licensed as a primary care physician and naturopathic doctor applying the concept of powerful natural healing from within the body, its practices and principles with holistic medicine, naturopathic medicine and the use of proactive prevention in diagnosing and treating patients in Spanaway experiencing thyroid problems.
Our natural treatment protocol is based on the results of comprehensive analyses and diagnoses that may include:
- A thyroid blood test
- An endocrine analysis for potentially underlying causes
- An evaluation of the immune system
- Analysis of hormone levels, adrenal glands, digestive system and other areas
- A thyroid scan if there are thyroid abnormalities
If you suspect thyroid problems, call us for a consultation to discuss your symptoms and our effective hypothyroidism natural treatment program.
