Thyroid and Thyroid Function

Your thyroid, a small gland located in your neck, plays an enormous part in your overall health. If your thyroid is producing too much or too little of the needed thyroid hormones, your body will be out of balance. Getting your body back in balance is the goal of treating thyroid issues.

At Burns Integrative Wellness Center we work with patients to understand and resolve thyroid issues.  Normally thyroid issues are detected through blood tests along with signs and symptoms that you give to your doctor.  When the thyroid is over or under active, the conditions are called hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.  For a list of common symptoms, go to the following pages:

Some other issues related to the thyroid are goiters, thyroid cancer, thyroiditis [inflammation of the thyroid], Grave’s disease [autoimmune disorder], Hashimoto’s [autoimmune disorder].  Only through proper testing can we best determine if there is an issue with the thyroid along with the best treatment options.  Options typically include synthetic or natural thyroid, surgery or radioiodine therapy.
