Naturopathic Thyroid Doctor

Your thyroid is the master gland of your metabolism and thyroid hormone is active in almost every cell of your body.  An underactive thyroid (hypothyroid), an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroid) or a thyroid that is being attacked by your own immune system (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disease) can impair your overall body’s functioning and leave you feeling unwell. Below are common signs of a poorly functioning thyroid.

  • Fatigue and Low energy
  • Intolerance of Cold or Heat
  • Constipation or Frequent Bowel Movements
  • Skin and Hair Changes
  • Weight Gain or Weight Loss
  • Anxiety, Depression 
  • Muscle Aches
  • Memory Problems
  • Menstrual Changes
  • Restlessness, Sweating, Rapid Heart Rate, Tremors

​The conventional approach commonly uses TSH in screening for thyroid, if this is normal no further testing is done.  However, many patients with a “normal” TSH still present with symptoms and may require more comprehensive thyroid testing.  Dr. Bizios will perform a comprehensive thyroid panel, and screen for nutritional deficiencies related to thyroid health. A unique combination of herbs, vitamins, minerals and nutrition will help correct any imbalances.
