Female Thyroid Therapy FAQ
If you experience hypothyroidism or adrenal fatigue, thyroid therapy may be right for you.
Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of your neck. Although it is small, this gland is directly responsible for your metabolism.
Since metabolism is the rate at which your body uses energy, all processes of the body are impacted by the thyroid hormones. The lack of thyroid hormones is called hypothyroidism, a hormone deficiency that tends to affect more women than men.
Common thyroid issues in women are low energy, weight gain, anxiety, depression, brain fog, constipation, hair loss, thin or brittle hair, and nails.
The adrenals are little pyramid-shaped glands that sit on top of your kidneys. These small glands are responsible for the production of many hormones such as cortisol, the stress hormone, and about 20% of your reproductive hormone levels.
When we experience stress, our adrenal glands secrete cortisol to help our bodies manage it. In moderation, this is a normal and healthy response; but in excess, it can cause adrenal fatigue and even gland failure.
Adrenal fatigue, also known as adrenal dysfunction, causes a reverse in the cortisol curve, which creates intense sluggishness during the day. In worse cases, adrenal fatigue can even cause a lack of sleep at night. The immune system is impacted, and the body goes into fight or flight mode.
Common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include anxiety, irritability, headaches, hair loss, fatigue, and changes in weight.
ageRejuvenation thyroid and adrenal therapies can help balance hormones in the body and reduce the negative side effects of hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue.
Our practitioners and physicians specialize in hormone treatments and use natural thyroid medication. We create an individualized prescription, which is then filled by our compounding pharmacy.
For the adrenals:
Adrenal function can be tested through a saliva test over a 24-hour time period to determine the extent of fatigue. We are then able to create a customized treatment plan to restore healthy adrenal function and balance to the body.
For the thyroid:
For an accurate depiction of your thyroid function, we test the hormones made by the thyroid – T4 and T3, as well as Reverse T3 and the antibodies associated with an autoimmune thyroid response. We are then able to create a customized treatment plan to restore healthy thyroid function and balance to the body.
Since there is no long-term cure for hypothyroidism, most women will need to supplement their hormones for the rest of their life.
When determining whether you want to use hormone replacement therapy to treat your underactive thyroid or adrenal glands, consider the effects on your daily life. If your thyroid condition makes your daily life difficult or less successful, then hormone replacement therapy for the condition can bring fast relief.
