What does your Thyroid gland do? 

The thyroid gland in your neck produces hormones that regulate how your cells use energy. You may experience a wide range of symptoms if your thyroid gland produces too little or too much thyroid hormone. With poor thyroid function your hormones lose the ability to manage cell energy efficiently.

“My borderline thyroid hormone levels returned to a normal level and I avoided taking my thyroid medication through herbs, supplements and diet changes.”

— Ann, Galway

We treat whatever has contributed to your Thyroid function problems including:
• Digestive system
• Blood sugar balance
•Hormone balance especially adrenal function

We can help you if you are:
• Taking thyroid drugs but still have symptoms  despite normal blood levels
• Have ‘borderline’ thyroid blood tests
• Have several symptoms of thyroid problems but normal blood tests

Q. “I feel well on my thyroid medication as a replacement treatment for my Thyroid gland. Is it possible to use only natural medicines for this problem? I would prefer not to take drugs.”
A. Your body has become accustomed to relying on external hormones and it is not possible to answer the above question in advance. It requires a one to one assessment, consistency of treatment and repeated monitoring of blood tests probably over a two year period. Make a Thyroid Clinic appointment to discuss.
