Addressing Overactive and Underactive Thyroid
At Melbourne Functional Medicine, we believe the greatest indicator of a problem with your health comes from the body itself. We understand that it can be frustrating when your tests don’t indicate a health issue, even when you’re already living with the symptoms.
Jabe Brown, our thyroid Naturopath in Melbourne, will work with you to determine the cause of your thyroid related symptoms. Whether you’re unhappy with your current thyroid treatment or your tests have come up clear, we will listen to you and employ a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment.
Your thyroid is responsible for regulating your metabolism, but its effectiveness can be impacted, leading to thyroid dysfunction. Underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, occurs when your thyroid isn’t producing enough hormones. Overactive thyroid, also known as hyperthyroidism, indicates excessive hormone production. A quick look at the often-contrasting symptoms associated with these conditions clearly shows the effect they can have on your everyday life.
