There IS a reason as to WHY you feel the way that you do!...

Did you know that Thyroid Disease affects 20 million people in America today?
Did you know that of those 20 million affected, an estimated 60 percent are unaware of their condition entirely? Did you know that women are 5-8 times more likely to have Thyroid conditions than men?​ WHATYOUNEEDTOKNOW_FM-IMG Many people who suffer from hyper/hypothyroidism suffer from one or multiple unpleasant symptoms of this named illness. In most cases, over time the symptoms worsen and yet these patients receive no explanation as to WHY? The reasons for continued suffering and frustration are often related to less than thorough evaluation by health care practitioners, ultimately leading to an incomplete or inadequate diagnosis. In short, an incomplete diagnosis regrettably results in inadequate and/or less than thorough care. Unfortunately, this scenario is very common in the practice of traditional medicine and most often times leads to the overwhelming frustration that most thyroid patients experience.

What is a Thyroid Gland anyway?

The Thyroid Gland is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck. It is responsible for producing hormones that regulate body functions, such as metabolism, heart rate, and temperature regulation. While thyroid conditions appear to be common, addressing the cause of the problem can oftentimes be confusing and very complex.


HYPOthyroid = underactive

Hypothyroidism occurs when thyroid hormones are deficient. Patients with an under active thyroid gland most often times complain of symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, forgetfulness, constipation, and in some cases, depression may manifest. Occasionally, some patients may experience the feeling of hopelessness or completely lose their sense of living when their thyroid is "under-functioning," or in other words, dysfunctional.


HYPERthyroid = overactive

Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland overproduces the two primary hormones that control how the cells in your body use energy. This disease can occur when the thyroid gland overproduces one or the other of the two hormones, or even both. A variety of other conditions can cause Hyperthyroidism, therefore it is critical that the evaluation, examination, and testing of the thyroid gland be thorough and precise. It is common for patients suffering from an overactive thyroid gland to complain of increased appetite and weight loss, nervousness/anxiety, restlessness, irritability, difficulty sleeping, inability to concentrate, occasional nausea, and more frequent bowel movements. In some instances, patients may develop an intolerance for heat and an increase in sweat production, or in some cases, their eyes may appear more prominent When the thyroid gland secretes high hormone levels it can cause an excessively high metabolic rate, resulting in a patient experiencing a rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, and hand tremors. Under these elevated conditions, it is common for the thyroid gland to swell into what is known as a 'goiter,' which can be either symmetrical or one-sided.


The most typical method of testing thyroid disorders is to determine the reading for TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), which is actually produced in the pituitary gland, rather than in the thyroid.

Many health care practitioners only test patients for two types of thyroid pathology, where there are actually many different patterns of thyroid dysfunction. Unfortunately, we find that many people suffering from thyroid dysfunction have an incomplete diagnosis. Therefore, if the exact cause of dysfunction is never identified, how can a person ever receive the correct treatment and eventually feel "normal?"

It's been discovered in the literature that most thyroid conditions are not primarily conditions of the thyroid itself but are caused by autoimmune conditions that attack the thyroid. In our clinic, we will test extensively to determine the real cause of your thyroid dysfunction. Managing a situation where thyroid tissue is being destroyed by the immune system in order to control immune function requires a very different approach than just medication. This is where our program excels in achieving amazing solutions and REAL results with thyroid patients. While we most certainly take a patient's symptoms into consideration, we DO NOT treat the symptoms of a named disease. We treat the underlying processes that are causing the organs and systems to dysfunction.

Our program requires extensive testing in order to identify the real causes of this disease. The majority of our thyroid patients claim to have never been tested this thoroughly before. However, through this testing, we are able to analyze the results and create a treatment process customized for the patient, and that is unique to their specific condition or dysfunction. When the underlying issues are addressed, our patients then experience improvement in their symptoms and we are able to help them return to optimal health.


Are you tired of feeling TIRED?

Are you irritable, anxious, feeling depressed?

Are you battling with hair loss, weight gain, and constipation?

Do you feel cold all the time?

Do you just simply want to feel "NORMAL" again?

When underlying dysfunctions are discovered in other areas of the body, they need to be addressed accordingly; if not handled appropriately, a person's chance of healing is diminished! At Binder Integrated Health Center, we find that in order to optimize thyroid function, the gut/immune system, liver, adrenal, and brain health need to be optimized as well.
