Thyroid problems Can Be Helped With Nutrition Response Testing®

You’d be surprised at the number of patients we see at the Natural Health Improvement Center in Phoenix AZ who have a weakness or imbalance in their thyroid gland.

Your thyroid is a very important gland – it controls your metabolism, which is how fast or slow things are “burned” in the body. An underactive thyroid usually produces fatigue, weight gain, sleepiness, and other symptoms. Traditional medicine treats this problem with a chemical and synthetic hormone, such as Synthroid. This supplies a hormone that the thyroid needs to function properly. 

The problem with this approach is that it doesn’t find the root cause of the problem. It just covers up the symptoms and keeps someone on a synthetic chemical drug for the rest of their life.

The most effective way to address a thyroid issue is to find out what is causing the problem and deal with that, so the condition is permanently remedied.

One of the main culprits affecting the function of the thyroid is Mercury. This is one example of how an underlying problem can affect any part of the body. With Nutrition Response Testing®, we find underlying problems that are affecting your thyroid gland.
