The world of conventional medicine is finally waking up to what patients have long been asking. In the last four years, there has been a shift towards a more open-minded attitude prescribing "combination therapy" for better thyroid care.
Your thyroid gland is a small butterfly-shaped gland that is located at the base of your neck, just below your Adam's Apple. Though it might not seem so, your thyroid is one of the most important glands in your body. It has a part to play in nearly every system and function, and any imbalances can easily cause a chain reaction affecting your health and well-being, both mentally and physically.
An estimated 10 million Americans have a thyroid problem, but the majority are not yet aware of it.
We ask our doctor to run a test, and lo' and behold' the results often come back "normal".
How can this be we ask, especially when weight gain continues to be an issue and/or we suffer from other hypothyroid hallmarks - feeling cold, old, stressed and depressed?
