Natural Thyroid Treatment

Underactive thyroid can be missed during standard thyroid function tests. Is your tiredness & weight gain due to a thyroid problem? Treat it naturally.

The thyroid is a gland in the neck near the adams apple, which regulates our energy levels and metabolism. Underactive thyroid or hypothyroidism is becoming more common in our society and the Naturopaths at Vibe Natural health Brisbane are experienced in treating its various forms.

Most people with underactive thyroid feel tired, sluggish, fuzzy headed and have trouble losing weight. Thyroid problems may occur after a long period of stress, frequent illness, after pregnancy, breastfeeding or menopause and are common if thyroid problems run in your family

Other Symptoms can include:

  • Fatigue and low energy levels,
  • Depression,
  • Slow Heart rate,
  • Unexplained weight gain,
  • intolerance to cold temperatures,
  • aching muscles,
  • dry coarse skin,
  • puffy face,
  • hair loss,
  • constipation,
  • poor concentration,
  • goitre (enlarged neck).

Thyroid Testing - Has yours been tested properly?

If you have been feeling this way, have you had thyroid testing? Many GPs, due to medicare regulations, tend to only test one hormone, TSH when they are testing for thyroid problems. If your TSH is normal, your doctors might assume you do not have a thyroid problem. Recently there has been a lot of controversy amongst the medical profession, as many of us now believe that testing TSH on its own does not give us enough information to know if a patient has a thyroid problem. Other hormones such as T4, T3 and Thyroid antibodies may also need to be tested to really know if a thyroid problem exists.

Recent research in the USA redefines thyroid test ranges which previously left many people undiagnosed.

Underactive thyroid treatment with herbs and nutrients

Herbs such as Coleus Forskolli have been proven to increase weight loss rates in people with low thyroid function. Herbs such as echinacea and hemidesmus are used to regulate the immune antibodies which are involved in destroying the thyroid if Hashimotos Thyroiditis is present. Many foods help increase thyroid funtion, such as foods high in Iodine and Tyrosine, which are the nutrients which thyroid hormones are synthesised from. There is recent research that some autoimmune thyroid conditions can be linked to food allergies, so it is very important for your naturopath to check for any possible allergies which can overload your immune system, making it harder for your thyroid to function well.

Our Naturopaths can help you with natural treatments for hypothyroidism and provide you with thorough thyroid testing.

What to expect from your Naturopathy consultation

The best way to understand the cause of dysfunction in the body is to take a comprehensive health history. Your Naturopath will spend an hour with you at your first consultation asking questions about all the systems in your body – this gives us the framework to understand which areas of your body are working well and which areas need help.

Your Naturopath will give you an evaluation of your health, a plan for your treatment and then ask you in which order of priority you would like to treat your health issues. You will receive a hands on treatment and be given proactive recommendations to take home to improve your health.
