If your concern is your thyroid function and health, I will help you find the most optimal for YOU option of treatment ranging from just replenishing your body with minerals and vitamins to starting thyroid hormone or switching from one kind of thyroid hormone to another.
In order to optimize your body with the right FOR YOU dose of the thyroid hormone, we would have to meet more frequently – around every 6 weeks to see how you feel and check your blood pressure, heart rate, and thyroid hormone levels via lab testing. Once you reach your optimal dose and you are feeling your best, our appointments can be more spread out to every 3-6 months.
Every appointment provides MORE information. It is just like peeling of an onion – one has to get through many layers to reach to the core! There are lots of possibilities and lots of available functional and conventional ways to test your blood, saliva, and urine, BUT it is not possible to do all of the labs in 1 visit. You just will not have enough blood to give. I do my best to test the most important things during the first appointment which allows me to focus on the future course of testing if needed. Moreover, some if not all blood lab test abnormalities will disappear as we start our plan of treatment with replenishing your body with the good stuff you need.

Sprouts Health offers a discounted 3, 6 and 12 months programs that would help YOU to get better. Developing a number of symptoms that represent the name of your disease did not happen overnight.
