Thinning hair, depression, anxious, low or hyper energy, thinning eyebrows or eyelashes, difficulty maintaining healthy weight, fullness around the neck, digestive problems, cold or heat sensitivity, argumentative, cranky,
Any of these symptoms can indicate a thyroid problem.
Most of the hair thinning I see is a symptom of a thyroid that is not working properly.
Thyroid hormones affect every cell in the body. Thyroid conditions have become epidemic even among our children and pets and are largely undiagnosed. But you have had a standard thyroid test and your doctor says you are fine? Most lab testing in mainstream medicine is just not thorough enough. Functional, holistic practitioners look for much different numbers and indicators than mainstream medicine. For instance, clients only feel really good or “normal” when TSH levels are under 2.0 whereas the mainstream considers 5.0 normal.
And then, when Thyroid dysfunction is recognized, it is managed with synthetic hormones and many pharmaceuticals for ongoing symptoms. In Functional Nutrition we heal the thyroid with food.
As both a hairdresser and nutritionist I am in a unique position. Over and over again in my practice, we see healing in thyroid function. Hair regrows, getting thicker, smoother, shinier, easier. And clients feeling so much healthier and happier overall. I am continually astonished at how easily food heals.
Delicious food heals. Emotional and physical wellbeing is truly our birthright.
