Hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, affects millions of Americans.

Ninety percent of hypothyroid cases in the United States are due to Hashimoto's, an autoimmune disease that attacks and destroys the thyroid gland. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Because of this, many people continue to suffer from hypothyroid symptoms despite taking thyroid hormones. Although thyroid medications may be necessary to maintain thyroid function, they do not address the immune system's relentless attack against the thyroid gland.

It is possible to balance the immune system to tame flare ups and work towards healing the thyroid. This is a multi-faceted approach that includes:

๐Ÿ”นRemoving inflammatory foods; primarily gluten and dairy.
๐Ÿ”นAdopting an autoimmune diet if necessary.
๐Ÿ”นRepairing leaky gut.
๐Ÿ”นStabilizing blood sugar

It's important to manage your autoimmune condition to lower your risk of developing other autoimmune diseases.

For more information on autoimmunity and what it means for you, give our office a call.๐Ÿ“ž

Research continues to show us that depression is a sign of imbalance. It's not an inherited genetic condition that you are powerless to change. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Imbalances can be caused by inflammatory foods, toxins, medications, life events like trauma, and stress โ€“ and taking a one-size-fits-all antidepressant is like turning off a blaring alarm and ignoring a fire.

โค Here are 12 research-backed possibilities that could be the root cause drivers of depressive symptoms:

- Infection-induced depression
- Long term stress
- Loneliness
- Trauma
- Conflicts in modern hierarchies, such as the workplace, social groups, and families
- Grief
- Romantic rejection
- Postpartum depression
- Seasonal Affective Disorder
- Chemically-induced depression
- Environmental toxins
- Being diagnosed with a disease

Depression looks different for each person. ๐Ÿ’• Our office focuses on getting to the root cause of depression.

Sometimes....we're just not feeling it. ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ

Exercising, working, eating healthy, parenting, housework, it's a lot to manage and can tank motivation to keep up with a healthy lifestyle. The initial motivation of wanting change helps to start with new habits, but that doesn't last long if we donโ€™t work on keeping it. Here are some tips to help keep you on your game!

๐Ÿ’• Sets goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, and relevant.
๐Ÿ’• Find support with like-minded groups that keep you accountable and excited.
๐Ÿ’• Get everything possible ready for your day the night before to remove any obstacles when your day gets hectic.
๐Ÿ’• Ensure you're getting adequate energy by eating wholesome foods in regular intervals.
๐Ÿ’• Connect with a professional to help you achieve your goals: a personal trainer, nutritionist, or whatever you may need that is within reach.

At the end of the day what matters is staying focused on the journey and all your reasons for wanting to live in optimal wellness, even if you fail a dozen times before you start seeing progress.

Many of the common โ€œsigns of agingโ€ are actually signs of a hormonal imbalance.
There are over 80 types of hormones in the body, and even tiny imbalances can make you feel anxious and irritable, gain weight, or have trouble sleeping. Hormonal imbalances, especially in women, are extremely common and often misdiagnosed or overlooked by conventional practitioners.

Symptoms of a hormonal imbalance in women include:
- Irregular periods
- Mood imbalances
- Anxiety or depression
- Insomnia or trouble sleeping
- Weight gain or trouble losing weight
- Crying or emotional
- Brain fog or trouble concentrating
- Low s*x drive
- Headaches
- Trouble controlling blood sugar levels
A common underlying factor of hormonal imbalances in women is low progesterone caused by high levels of chronic stress. This includes emotional, physical, and environmental stressors.

In functional medicine, we focus on understanding the โ€œwhyโ€ behind a condition. Then, we address the problem at the level of cause - instead of just masking the issue with medications.

Here are some tips to keep your sleep in good health.๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒท

1. Gradually transition your schedule 15-30 minutes earlier, instead of the full hour difference.
2. Get as much sunlight as possible to regulate your natural circadian rhythm (especially in the morning).
3. Keep your routine the same.
4. Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed.
5. Limit blue light at night (screens) - and swap it for a red light (boosts melatonin production)!

Healthy sleep is so important to whole-body wellness! Call our office to learn more about how we can help optimize sleep habits. ๐Ÿ’ค
