Hypothyroidism Treatment Near You

What is Hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, occurs when your thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormones. These hormones regulate your metabolism, affecting everything from your energy levels to body temperature. Symptoms include fatigue, weight gain, dry skin, hair loss, and difficulty concentrating. Various factors, including autoimmune disease, genetics, certain medications, and iodine deficiency, can cause hypothyroidism. Diagnosis typically involves blood tests to measure thyroid hormone levels.

Learn how specific foods can support thyroid function and manage symptoms.

Stimulate energy flow and balance hormones through targeted needle placements.

Address individual deficiencies that may contribute to your thyroid problems.
