The thyroid is one of the most important parts of the body due to the influence it has over your health and wellness. This small gland sitting on the base of your neck impacts the way that every single organ within your body functions. About 12 percent of Americans develop a significant thyroid condition in their lifetime, leading to disruptive and uncomfortable changes to metabolism, heart function, digestion, energy, and more.
If you are part of that 12 percent, you can seek relief through thyroid disorder management at MindBodySpirit Care in Tampa, Florida. Dr. Shemesh is a holistic and integrative health expert who has years of experience helping his patients manage their thyroid disorder through simple yet powerful lifestyle changes and natural treatments. He can help you feel like yourself again.
What Is a Thyroid Disorder?
The most common thyroid disorders are hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. They both develop as a result of the thyroid producing an incorrect amount of its hormone. While hyperthyroidism is defined by too much thyroid hormone, hypothyroidism is a result of an underactive thyroid. Certain symptoms indicate when too much thyroid hormone floods the body as a result of hyperthyroidism:
- Unexplained weight loss
- Anxiety, racing heartbeat, excessive sweating
- Hair thinning or loss
- Flushed, itchy skin
Hypothyroidism, on the other hand, displays the body’s lack of thyroid hormone with other symptoms:
- Weight gain
- Fatigue and mood disorders
- Constipation and cracked skin
Components of Natural Thyroid Disorder Management
Conventional medicine suggests using a synthetic thyroid hormone pill for the rest of your life to keep thyroid hormones balanced. However, Dr. Shemesh can suggest many natural and holistic treatment methods to help you avoid dependency on medication, eliminate your symptoms, and reclaim a better quality of life.
First, Dr. Shemesh will complete a comprehensive evaluation to identify the potential causes of your thyroid disorder. He will assess your other hormone levels, diet habits, gut health, stress levels, current medication prescriptions, and many other factors. Next, Dr. Shemesh will help you adopt a diet plan supplemented with herbs, vitamins, and minerals to remedy your symptoms naturally.
Your plan may include replacing gluten, conventional dairy, and sugar with wild-caught salmon, coconut oil, probiotic-rich foods, and bone broth. Ashwagandha, iodine, selenium, and vitamin B-complex are also powerful supplements to reverse the symptoms of thyroid disorder. It’s also possible that Dr. Shemesh will recommend other holistic treatment methods like aromatherapy, bioidentical hormone therapy, stress management, therapeutic yoga, and other methods to improve your health.
