Unfortunately, this is a VERY common condition in the US now for many different reasons. Fortunately, we get to help MANY people with this on a pretty regular basis by focusing on all 6 steps of wellness through a functional medicine approach by addressing the person as a whole, rather than a piece of a symptom.
Thyroid problems occur for many reasons, most of which come from TOXINS, Diet, Food Allergies, Autoimmune, Adrenal Exhaustion, Inflammation and Medications…which are actually toxins in themselves.
Our goal here at Advanced Allergy Relief and Wellness Center is to maximize your health by addressing ALL 6 steps of wellness. Once you have either a thyroid diagnosis or symptoms, the problem had all ready been going on for quite some time. That is merely a sign of a damaged toxic body that needs repaired.
Not only do we need to address your health with a functional medicine type of approach but we also have a system, or curriculum in place to help you learn what caused the problem to begin so you can stay healthy. So once you are better, you don’t have to keep coming back! You get to learn how to take care of yourself!
Many people suffer thyroid problems/symptoms on a daily basis, even those on medications. They never seem to get better because when the thyroid isn’t working that is usually a symptom of other problems taking place.

Unfortunately many who have thyroid disease do not even know that they have it. Despite countless efforts to communicate with your doctor, your symptoms are ignored or the proper diagnosis is missed due to inferior testing and poor lifestyle assessment.
If you feel like you have hypothyroid symptoms and had a TSH test performed that came back normal, you are not alone. The problem is that the TSH test is a poor diagnostic tool and when used alone misses the majority of Thyroid problems.
It is estimated that the majority of the patients with thyroid disease have an autoimmune disease. Despite this information, many doctors do not test for antibody levels for the condition known as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Thus allowing not only your symptoms, but your underlying problems undetected.
