Tired of the Thyroid Merry-Go-Round? 

By  Dr. Luke Martin, D.C.

Do any of the following statements describe you?

  • You wake up in the morning, exhausted, even after a full night’s sleep…
  • You watch what you eat, and try to exercise, but can’t seem to lose weight
  • You’d like to go to the gym to work off those extra pounds you’ve put on, but just don’t have the energy
  • You notice your hair isn’t as thick as it used to be, and you also noticed a lot of it on the shower floor…
  • You celebrate when you go to the bathroom more than twice a week…
  • You sit in front of your computer for hours, trying to think while at your job, but your brain just doesn’t seem to work anymore…
  • You’ve been to your health care provider to be tested and were told “everything is within normal ranges”, but you still feel awful
  • You look in the mirror and no longer recognize who you see looking back at you. Your face looks puffy, and even your voice sounds different…
  • You no longer know what to do or who to turn to to get back to who you used to be

If any of these statements resonate with you, I want you to pause for a moment. Think about how you’ve felt the past 6 months, or longer. Ask yourself this question: Do I want to keep living like this, day in and out, for the rest of my life? We both know that ignoring the problem will not make it go away. If in fact the issue is low thyroid, it’s likely that your condition will get progressively worse down the road, potentially leading to other serious health issues. However, I am here to tell you that there is a solution. Life does not have to be this way! You can regain your energy, vitality and health. Feeling better is both possible and attainable. Let me tell you a story about one of my patients, Sage. Sage came to me feeling very lethargic and unable to lose weight. Initially, she went to her health care provider and explained her situation.

  • She was told that the issue was with her thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) but that they would wait until it got worse to go on medication.
  • Things did not improve, and she returned, only to be put on an antidepressant.
  • Still not improving, Sage was put on Levothyroxine, a thyroid medication. Even this did not help her symptoms.

Fortunately, she heard about our service and approach to treating low thyroid conditions, decided to give it a try, and it changed her life. By following our strategy for low thyroid patients, Sage was able to significantly improve her health. Her quality of life improved, she lost a lot of weight and most importantly, regained control of her health. In her own words, she said, “I will never go back to what I was before. I have a great outlook for my future!”

This is just one example of the many successes we have had with our patients. I’ve spent years helping women just like you, and hours studying the latest research to support patients with hypothyroidism – both diagnosed, and undiagnosed. My goal for all my patients is to uncover the root cause of what is causing the condition. Just as we helped Sage, we can also help you to change the direction of your health.

You can either continue down the path you have already been traveling, or you can set a new course. On your current path, you can expect more of what you have already experienced and continue to battle. But if you want a different result, if you want to change the direction of your health, you’ll have to do something different. Make a new choice, and pursue a different outcome.
