Don't Let Thyroid Health Slip through the Cracks

Thyroid Function

Autoimmune Thyroiditis is the most common reason for hypothyroid disease.

  It is characterized by an immune system attack on the thyroid that damages the gland systemically. In most affected individuals, the disease progresses to clinical hypothyroidism and atrophic or goitrogenic thyroiditis.  The definition of hypothyroidism is an elevated serum level of thyrotropin along with low serum levels of thyroxine (T4).  Symptoms may include a thyroid enlargement, fatigue, infertility, dry skin, cold intolerance, voice changes and most importantly a generalized slowing of metabolic processes (i.e. constipation and weight gain). Many of the early stages of autoimmune thyroiditis may have the clinical presentation of hypothyroidism but lack the serologic findings of thyrotropin elevation and/or T4 or T3 suppression. Sub-clinical hypothyroidism is a term that has been used in functional medicine to describe this state but is a misuse of the term.  It is a partial hypothyroid state defined by a lack of symptoms.

At Second Nature Care 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. WP Thyroid by RLC labs is 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.

I.V. Ozone and biologics can address underlying chronic infections that affect thyroid function. We beat back the pathogens that disturb your normal function. Ozone has no known resistance unlike antibiotics. We incorporate strategic anti-viral and anti-bacterial protocols that work.
