Experts In Hormonal Weight Concerns
Trouble losing weight, obesity, or a stalled metabolism is a frustrating sign of hormonal imbalance. Hypothyroidism – even if sub-clinical – affects our weight, and our programs are designed to rebalance your hormones and reset your metabolism resulting in weight loss and greater vitality. Our team excels in this area and will guide you to your weight loss goals.
Experience with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
Functional Medicine with a Hashimoto’s thyroiditis specialised approach begins with forensic testing of all thyroid markers, and natural treatments to reduce thyroid antibody titers and bring symptoms into remission. Our team has exceptional experience working with this every day.
Experience with Grave’s Disease
Our naturopathic thyroid specialists will run testing on the thyroid as well as other systems affected by hyperthyroidism such as adrenal health, sleep, cardiovascular system, and blood sugar regulation. We use non-drug treatment to guide the thyroid back to a better function, with many patients having results in the first 4 weeks.
Nutritionist Thyroid Specialists
All our naturopaths are experts at guiding the right diet for your individual body. We don’t subscribe to fad diets or popular culture. Instead, diet is based on blood testing and you are guided to make the changes needed to allow the body to heal.
Our team is experienced, working alongside your Doctor, thyroid cancer specialist, or endocrinologist, and will fill the gaps if you are finding your current treatment is not alleviating your symptoms.
When you work with the Lucy Rose Clinic, you access an entire team working together to get you feeling great again!
