Thyroid health is important for people of all ages due to the beneficial hormones secreted by this vital organ.
The complexity of the human body is so involved that even with today’s most brilliant minds, there are still mysteries to be solved. Even though certain thyroid conditions, such as goiters, have been treated as far back as 2700 BC, it wasn’t until the mid-1600s that this gland was given the name we recognize today. It was many years later before more was known about the hormones it secretes and how vital thyroid health is to your metabolism, body temperature, and even brain development in children.
We now know quite a bit more about thyroid health and that there are natural approaches that work well to treat goiters, hyperthyroidism (excessive hormone production), and hypothyroidism (low hormone production). Here at Boutique Wellness in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, as a holistic practitioner, we educate our patients on thyroid-friendly foods and when appropriate, discuss thyroid hormone replacement along with other natural thyroid support solutions.
If you are currently on medication for thyroid health or a thyroid issue, we can conduct a personalized medication review and provide recommendations for alternatives and nutritional information that can help you optimize your thyroid health.
