Overactive & Underactive Thyroid Support in Collingwood
People are told all the time that they have normal thyroid levels and the symptoms they’re experiencing (fatigue, cold, depression, tiredness, memory loss, weight gain) are due to stress or worse - 'normal'. As Naturopathic Doctors, we draw from a more holistic and functional medicine approach and tend to do a more thorough investigation when working with these patients to determine whether their levels are actually optimal and not just past the threshold of disease.
Naturopaths with prescribing authority are now able to prescribe desiccated thyroid in the province of Ontario - positioning us to treat patients who don’t respond optimally to other herbal, nutritional, nutraceutical and lifestyle interventions. A full workup is required for treatment: including blood work with future monitoring, and this allows us to take you from coping with thyroid symptoms to thriving without them.
What to Expect When Seeking Thyroid Treatment
A full workup and personal case history, foundational health strategies are analyzed and fine-tuned (diet, lifestyle, stress, sleep, environmental influences, etc.).
Blood work and specialized testing when needed.
Supportive therapy either with botanicals nutrients and sometimes Thyroid hormone is prescribed where necessary when the above measures are not enough.
