Hypothyroid Issues & Symptoms

Do you lack energy? Are you gaining weight even though you are eating less and exercising more? Is your skin dry and brittle? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you could have an underproductive thyroid, known as a hypothyroid. Have you already been diagnosed and don’t want to be on medication any longer? At The Epigenetics Healing Center, we work to find out why your thyroid is not responding properly.

Symptoms of Hypothyroid

  • Unexplainable weight gain
  • Lack of energy
  • Forgetfulness
  • Inability to think straight
  • Brain fog
  • Insomnia
  • Aches and pains
  • Moodiness
  • Depression

Please know that these symptoms alone do not necessarily mean you have a medical issue. However, when you have two or three or all of these symptoms, you should consider getting a professional opinion as to the cause. 

Dr. Goodbinder –  Thyroid Specialist in Kansas City

Dr. Goodbinder Epigenetic Functional MedicineWhat do I do differently than what other doctors do for thyroid issues? I don’t treat it. I don’t treat your thyroid. What I do is develop a full Life Restoration Program for your entire body.

We create a whole program that says, this is what your diet looks like, this is the exercise program you need to do, these are your stress reduction techniques, these are supplementations you need to take. Maybe we’ll use the hyperbaric chamber. But we will do everything necessary and retest to watch how, naturally, you can make your thyroid function properly.

Again, I am not treating a disease, we are trying to optimize the functions of your body. And, more likely, over 95% at this point, people are able to get off of their thyroid medications.

Our Process for Thyroid Conditions

We perform a broad range of laboratory testing to find out the exact area of the body that is causing your dysfunction and work to get it functioning properly in order to normalize your total body system. We don’t just give you what your body is lacking or missing; we work to find out why your body is not creating on its own. We work to get your body to produce those essential compounds and proteins naturally.

Hypothyroid Success Story

We have successfully worked with many clients who no longer need their thyroid medications.
