hypothyroid - This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-SA-NCEvery week I have a newly diagnosed hypothyroid patient.  If they saw another practitioner they were usually prescribed synthyroid which makes the patient feel worse.

Most Americans don't know that there is an alternative to synthyroid medication.  Synthyroid is filled with fillers, additives, colors, gluten and other contaminants that will make your thyroid condition worse. 

Your thyroid health is our business.  We find out what caused your thyroid condition and we work hard to reverse it.

Your thyroid is an important organ that is responsible for producing hormones for energy, it regulates your temperature and keeps your brain, heart and muscles and all other organs functioning well.  An underactive or hypothyroid causes serious health concerns.  

If you're hypothyroid you can experience:

  • fatigue
  • difficulty concentrating
  • feeling cold
  • headaches
  • muscle and joint pain
  • weight gain even though you are not eating more calories
  • constipation
  • dry skin
  • coarse hair and hair loss
  • hoarse voice
  • depression
  • menstrual irregularities
  • milky discharge from the breast  

At Second Nature, we run full thyroid panels so you won't fall through the cracks.  We even check your receptor status.  We offer the best medicines to support your thyroid while we are healing your thyroid.

I used to treat hypothyroid conditions with NatureThroid which is a dessicated porcine thyroid that provides a standardized combination of T4 and T3.  It contains trace amounts of thyroid cofactors - T1, T2, calcitionin and iodine.  All of the ingredients are hypoallergenic unlike synthroid and there are no glutens, corn, artificial colors or flavors.  

Now we offer WP Thyroid an even better version that contains preprobiotics and coconut.  It is the most natural and cleanest thyroid medication on the planet.  

Our prescribed natural products have never been recalled by the FDA.  They are not synthetic so they don't contain synthetic T4 hormones created in the lab that the body can't metabolize properly. Patients who take the natural treatment, on average, lost more weight.
