Getting To The Real Causes Of Hypothyroidism

The following are some of the real causes of hypothyroidism. They do not exist all together in any one person but in varying combinations.

About Neurogenics Thyroid Clinic

Neurogenics Thyroid Clinic is a specialist functional medicine clinic providing advanced diagnostics and testing to help individuals assess and treat the root cause of their specific health concerns.

Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

About Your Discovery Consultation

In your Discovery Consultation we will

Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

Why You Need Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. The focus of functional medicine is on patient-centered care, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease.

Functional Medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what are sometimes considered  “alternative” or “integrative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.

We Will Help You Every Step Of The Way

At Neurogenics we are at the cutting edge of research. We help you make smart decisions.

About Your Thyroid

Think of your thyroid as the central gear in a very complex engine. When that gear breaks down it can take the entire engine down with it. Every cell in your body needs thyroid hormone. Thus the thyroid is a major factor in a wide range of physical and mental health issues.

Thyroid hormone acts like a spark plug for energy production. It controls the rate of energy production, maintains body temperature, helps regulate children’s growth and profoundly affects brain chemistry influencing moods and emotions

About Hypo Thyroidism

Hypothyroidism, according to published research, is now believed to affect 25 – 30% of the general population in industrialised countries. It is 10x more common in women than in men and is now affecting young women in the 14 – 20 age group. Almost 90% of hypothyroidism is actually down to an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s disease. No two people with hypothyroidism are alike and the condition will present differently in each person. This is why everyone with hypothyroidism must be treated as a unique case.

The Great Thyroid Controversy ...

The Inadequate TSH, T4 Assessment and Treatment Model 

The now controversial TSH and T4 assessment and treatment model is a philosophy that dates back to the early 70s. Unfortunately it has never changed in that time despite the fact research has moved on greatly, especially in the last ten years.  

Assessing thyroid function properly through lab tests now requires that thyroid antibodies be assessed together with T3 levels free and bound.  This is a critical factor when it comes to designing and implementing individual treatment programs. 

What Is Hashimoto’s Disease ?

Hasimoto’s Disease is hypothyroidism caused by issues relating to autoimmunity. It is a complex condition that has to be managed in a highly structured manner. The test for Hashimoto’s disease is a thyroid antibody test. However, most if not all GP surgeries refuse to test for thyroid antibodies because if the antibodies are positive, they have no way of treating the condition. Their treatment remains the same – thyroxine only.

Functional medicine will help you get to the root cause of your hypothyroidism and treat it appropriately

Special Topic

Hypothyroid Induced Dementia

Thyroid Induced Dementia and Depression

In your brain thyroid hormone acts like a spark plug and your brain is saturated with thyroid hormone receptors. That means your brain needs thyroid hormone for much of its energy and drive. In other words thyroid hormone literally lights your brain up. A deficiency in thyroid hormone means that brain function will slow down.  

In the medical literature ( The Lancet ) it is clearly stated that approximately 40% of depression is related to hypothyroidism. Low thyroid function is associated with dopamine deficiency which is itself is associated with the more extreme signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism such as hopelessness, poor motivation and losing one’s sense of purpose in life including self isolation. 

Worse still, is that hypothyroidism is a key element in the progression of some forms of dementia.
