They wanted to CUT ✂️ my thyroid OUT. Thyroid saved! Autoimmunity solved!
Did you know that 90% of hypothyroid cases are autoimmunity?
Meet Karen, a functional medicine practitioner who is passionate about helping people who are struggling with their health. Karen has been practicing functional medicine in her office and has seen numerous patients with various conditions.
Karen knows firsthand what it's like to struggle with a health issue. She came to her own practice because she was experiencing issues with her thyroid. After seeing a general practitioner who diagnosed her with hypothyroidism and recommended radiation, Karen decided to explore other options.
Luckily, Karen saw an advertisement for a seminar on functional medicine in the paper, and all the issues she was dealing with were listed. She attended the seminar and discovered the practice she would eventually join.
Karen was diagnosed with Graves' disease, a hyperthyroid condition that is the opposite of hypothyroidism. Her doctor recommended radiation, but Karen chose to take a functional medicine approach instead. It's been over a year since Karen started seeing her functional medicine practitioner, and she still has her thyroid.
Karen has also experienced some incredible improvements since starting functional medicine. She's noticed a reduction in hot flashes and has even dropped four dress sizes. Although she hasn't weighed herself, Karen is thrilled with the positive changes she's seen in her body.
Functional medicine has helped Karen manage her thyroid condition without resorting to radiation. Her experience serves as an inspiration for anyone who is looking for an alternative approach to health and wellness.
