Your thyroid is a small gland located in the lower part of your neck that appears like a butterfly. It regulates several aspects of your metabolism, from your heart rate to how quickly you burn calories. The main hormones secreted by the thyroid are Liothyronine (T3), Throxine (T4), and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
Too much T3 and T4 can result in a condition known as hyperthyroidism and too little T3 and T4 can result in hypothyroidism.
Most mainstream physicians believe that the Thyroid should be treated only if their standard blood tests are abnormal. At Bellissimo, we not only treat the symptoms but also work towards the optimization of its functions.
When your thyroid slows down, you may suffer from:
- Mood swings
- Weight gain
- Constipation / bloating
- Dry skin and hair
- Puffiness of face or under eyes
- Brittle hair or nails
- Depression and anxiety
- Cold intolerance
Most doctors prescribe a synthetic alternative form of thyroid replacement medicine called Synthroid. This is not the active form of thyroid hormone. We prescribe Armour Thyroid or Nature Throid, which contain both T4 and T3 as well as other components of the whole gland.
Our emphasis in natural hypothyroid therapies, such as Armour Thyroid, take the patient with multiple complaints into consideration as potential for optimization even if he or she is in a "normal" range according to basic testing.
