Tacoma Hypothyroidism


According to the United States National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health there are an estimated 27 million Americans suffering with thyroid problems, with 13 million of those sufferers currently undiagnosed.

We are an integrative healthcare facility experienced and licensed as a primary care physician and naturopathic doctor that applies the concept of powerful natural healing from within.

Using a unique natural hypothyroid treatment protocol we can treat Tacoma patients based on the principles and practices of natural healing with naturopathic and holistic medicine with a focus on proactive prevention when diagnosing and treating hypothyroidism symptoms.

Our individually-tailored treatment protocol for patients experiencing thyroid problems is based on results of comprehensive analyses, diagnoses and other additional factors that include but may not be limited to:

  • Laboratory tests that include a thyroid blood test
  • Analysis of adrenal glands, hormone levels, digestive system and other areas
  • Evaluation of endocrine conditions to determine the underlying cause
  • Evaluation of nutritional effects

If you have symptoms or suspect hypothyroidism, call for a consultation to learn how we can develop a natural treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Tacoma Hypothyroidism Symptoms


Hypothyroidism symptoms tend to appear slowly over a period of months or even years, and while they may vary from one person to another, the following includes some of the symptoms that may occur:

  • Feeling sluggish, weak or tired
  • Problems with concentration, memory or depression
  • An inability to tolerate cold
  • Dry skin and brittle nails
  • Muscle or joint aches
  • Skin that is dry, rough, pale and cold

In treating our patients in the Tacoma area, one of the first steps we take at the onset of thyroid problems is eliminating the causes and effects of thyroid dysfunction that may include overuse of medications, nutrient deficiencies, inflammation and changes in hormones as a result of stress.

We view modification of certain lifestyle factors as a major contributor toward health restoration as a part of our naturopathic treatment plan for thyroid problems.

Call for a consultation to learn more about removing the obstacles that may be preventing your body’s innate ability from healing itself from the inside out.
