Hypothyroidism, one of several thyroid disorders in which the thyroid function is low, is known to exist in more than 40 million women. Is it the scourge of your life?
The American Endocrine Society has acknowledged that over half of American women (>170 million total) may develop hypothyroidism at some point in their life and experience symptoms from anxiety, depression, brain-fog, inability to lose weight and poor digestion despite taking replacement thyroid hormones.
But what most people don’t know, including your medical doctor, is that your thyroid is not the problem in the majority of cases!
The #1 cause of hypothyroidism according to the American Endocrine Society is an autoimmune disorder called “Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism”. That’s right – your thyroid condition is really an immune system condition! This means that hypothyroidism care may have to switch focus from your thyroid to your immune system.
So what are the individual problems with Hashimoto’s/Hypothyroidism that are addressed by Dr. Autoimmune through functional medicine?
So if I currently identify 10 separate and distinct interfering factors for this condition (and any other autoimmune diseases), how can we address them systematically?
This is where functional medicine for hypothyroidism shines!
Functional medicine is all about “thinking & linking” your systems together instead of “blaming & taming”. Whether it’s diet, lifestyle modifications, supplements or specific neurological therapies, you need a plan that is designed for your specific needs, not a one-size-fits-all drug, supplement or dietary plan. We use this effective customized approach for thyroid disorders and autoimmune conditions to achieve significant results.
If you are truly committed to empowering yourself towards health then this is where we step in and develop a comprehensive plan to support each of the above areas.
We know it takes a commitment to reach your goals and we are here to guide you to reach beyond your goals. Let’s stop accepting “average” and putting up with “good enough”. It’s time to regain our health and our families’ health!
Dr Ian helped me overcome many health problems. When I initially went to see him, I was suffering from hypo-thyroidism. With his help, I am no longer hypo-thyroid. Amazing Results! He is highly recommended!
Using adjustments, blood analysis, supplements, suggested diet and exercise, Dr. Hollaman has been able to recreate the proper function of my endocrine system and I feel like a new person! I’ve lost weight and feel good about myself again. I know that my health is better than it has been for many years and I am no longer taking thyroid supplementation.
I initially started seeing Dr Ian for intense tiredness, digestive problems, low thyroid and a slew of other symptoms. He has been so amazing in supporting me to continuously make improvements and the results have been incredible. I highly recommend him, he is intuitive, wise and a high integrity person that I respect and value!
Ian really knows A LOT about thyroid problems! His knowledge and confidence convinced me to make the lifestyle changes -including no gluten, no sugar, and more exercise-that are essential to healing hormonal imbalances and to staying well. Several months later, I feel stronger, more energetic, and am happier than I have felt in a long time. Many thanks for all your help!
