The thyroid gland contributes to almost every function in the body. Located behind the Adam’s apple, this butterfly shaped gland releases a hormone that is responsible for regulating the metabolism of every cell in the body. This affects brain function, cholesterol levels, body temperature, the cardiovascular system, the nervous system, and more.
A thyroid defect occurs when the amount of hormone released is out of balance. Given the critical role the thyroid has on the body, a thyroid imbalance can be rather noticeable as distinct symptoms begin to surface.
Our goal in functional medicine is to implement strategies to help restore function by giving the body the right environment to heal itself. If you suspect you may have an imbalance of thyroid hormone production, Nuview Nutrition offers full health-assessments in order to accurately tailor your diet and reverse the effects of hormone imbalance.
