Hypothyroid

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck, which regulates most of the metabolic processes in the body. In fact, every cell in the body has a receptor site for the thyroid hormone. When the thyroid doesn’t produce enough of the thyroid hormone, it is considered a hypothyroid.

At Rejuvenate Your Life, we use functional endocrinology and immunology, as well as blood chemistry analysis to help our patients manage their thyroid condition successfully.

Common symptoms of a hypothyroid

  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Dry, brittle hair that falls out easily (including eyebrows)
  • Edema
  • Lingering digestive problems including constipation
  • Headaches first thing in the morning
  • Weight gain, even while eating a low calorie diet
  • Numbness in the hands or feet
  • Poor circulation
  • Prone to catching colds and other bacterial/viral infections easily, also takes a longer time to recover from them
  • Muscle cramps, even while at rest
  • Slow healing wounds
  • Excessive amounts of sleep needed in order to function
