After 10 years of clinical practice I have found so many cases of hypothyroid (low thyroid) that have been overlooked or directly missed. If you have any of the symptoms listed in this video be sure to get your thyroid "PROPERLY" tested for TSH, Free T3, and Free T4. It is so important to address the underlying causes of symptoms and I find thyroid and hormone imbalance to be at the root of so many issues.

This video shows the OPTIMAL thyroid levels that I have found in my clients with the best health. You can also check out my video "5 Steps To Fixing a Sub-Optimal Thyroid" to see what you can do to get your thyroid and metabolism functioning optimally.
These are 5 important tips to consider for patients that have thyroid symptoms and test results that are not in the optimal range for TSH, Free T4, and Free T3. This is also important for any client that is already on thyroid medication but doesn’t appear to be getting the beneficial effect of the medication. After 3-6 months of treatment, reassess your thyroid symptoms and retest your thyroid. If your symptoms and lab results haven’t improved, then consider talking to your MD or ND about trying Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT). To learn more about NDT, please see my video "Get Desiccated Thyroid, Get Back Your Life"
I love helping clients suffering with hypothyroidism because it makes such an impact in their quality of life with just a few simple treatments. Natural Dessicated Thyroid (NDT) is one of the treatments that I use when needed and it has proven again and again to restore energy, metabolism, focus, and a balanced weight to so many patients. Be sure to watch my full playlist of videos regarding thyroid treatment and support.
These are the best and most common herbs that I use in my clinical practice when working with clients that have clinical or sub-clinical hypothyroidism.
