Symptoms of fatigue, weight gain or inability to lose weight, hair loss, constipation, dry skin and trouble focusing and concentrating are common. Although these symptoms can be related to many other hormonal and medical conditions, they are often the result of a sluggish or low functioning thyroid gland. We are pleased to present a comprehensive review of thyroid function and its critical role in health and stabilization of our metabolism.
To learn more about thyroid gland disorders, healing options and other ways to enhance your energy and health, please join us with Dr. Kristi Tompkins, a Naturopathic Medical Doctor specializing in comprehensive hormone support and balance, for Optimize Your Thyroid and Metabolism: A Functional Medicine Approach.
The recording of Dr. Tompkins' webinar is now available to review here:
If left untreated, reduced or irregular thyroid function can worsen especially with advancing age, menopause, increased weight gain, environmental toxins and quite commonly chronic stress and unhealthy lifestyle choices. Fortunately, the thyroid gland can be rebalanced through healthy, nutritional treatments, restoring metabolism.
