Hyperthyroidism

Vitalia’s Approach to Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism is a condition of hyper-secretion of thyroid hormones T3 and T4 by the thyroid.  Eighty five percent of the time this condition is caused by an auto-immune disease called Grave’s disease in which the body is producing anti-bodies that are attacking the thyroid gland.  Symptoms include weight loss, nervousness, loose stools or diarrhea, heat intolerance, fatigue, rapid heart rate and sometime insomnia.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, we identify and treat the cause of hyperthyroidism or Grave’s disease.  Through scientific research we have developed many theories as to what may cause auto-immune disease to develop.  We have found that this type of immune system dysfunction often stems from issues in the digestive tract including food sensitivities, dysbiosis and nutritional deficiencies.

Hyperthyroidism can often be controlled and even cured using natural remedies that address the cause of the condition.  At Vitalia, we assess each patient to identify the causes of the condition and then put together a customized treatment plan using diet and nutrition, herbal medicines and homeopathic medicines.
