Thyroid Disorders & Hormone Balance
Hormones are chemical messengers that are absolutely essential to maintaining optimal health. If hormones are imbalanced in the slightest bit, the consequences can be devastating. There are a whole host of hormones surging through your body at one time attempting to orchestrate balance. Thyroid hormones, sex hormones, adrenal hormones, and metabolic hormones are all communicating with various cells and tissues so function can be maintained.
All too often, for one reason or another, hormones go awry and become imbalanced. This leads to a variety of problematic consequences that can leave you feeling miserable.
An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, 60% of which don’t know they have a problem. Many of those who do know just get treated with synthetic hormones the do nothing for the underlying cause. This does not have to be the case!
At GrassRoots Functional Medicine, we offer a number of advanced treatments and laboratory testing options to identify where your hormone levels are at and the best way to get them back in check. Our goal is for patients to rebalance hormones to their rightful place using the safest most natural methods possible. By optimizing the body’s physiology, promoting effective detox, and removing inflammatory triggers, we often see hormone levels normalize without replacing them artificially.
In certain individuals, hormones can be out of balance to the extent to where replacement can be beneficial. For this group of individuals, we offer bio-identical hormone replacement options as long as it is the right fit for that person. Every recipient of bio-identical hormone therapy will complete a comprehensive detoxification profile to ensure their body is breaking down hormones safely and efficiently. As with anything, hormone therapy can work wonders for some but be detrimental to others. It is essential that you work with someone who understands the intricate role hormones play inside the body.
Optimizing thyroid function and hormone balance will not only make you feel better, but it will help to slow aging process, optimize digestive function and metabolism, improve skin tone, aid in weight loss, enhance quality of life, in addition to alleviating a host of chronic health problems.
