Facts About Thyroid Disorder

 For Non Thyroid Chronic Fatigue Issues CLICK HERE

Most commonly in conventional medicine, the only test that is run is TSH. TSH stands for thyroid stimulating hormone. It is the hormone released by the pituitary gland in the brain. This hormone communicates with the thyroid and will help to either stimulate or decrease actual thyroid hormone production. TSH is certainly an important hormone to run, but it is only one portion of understanding the whole thyroid picture.


It is estimated that 12% of people will develop thyroid disease in their lifetime. About 60% of these people are not even aware that they have a thyroid condition according to the national thyroid association.



There can be major thyroid problems because the thyroid is not working optimally, but it is not bad enough to be truly classified as DISEASE. This is known medically as subclinical hypothyroidism. The reference ranges that are used by lab companies are therefore only identifying DISEASE, are not the reference ranges that are identifying OPTIMAL thyroid functioning.

    Our Approach to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    As you can see below, there are many different reasons behind fatigue. We start by doing advanced lab tests (ones you have not already done and are different than what are done in conventional medicine). The tests let us know how many root causes you have and which ones they are. We analyze labs from an optimal perceptive. This means that if we run a thyroid test and it comes back "normal" by conventional standards, we may not see it as normal. This is because our lens is focused on optimal health. We often see thyroid levels that are normal by conventional standards but low by optimal standards. 

    Once we have all the information, we then put together treatment protocols for your unique picture. This may include food, lifestyle, herbs, and researched based supplements. Occasionally we will use pharmaceutical medicine, but this is not our predominant approach.
