It has been estimated that between 3 and 10 million people actually suffer from an overactive thyroid, or hyperthyroidism. Dr. Amy is well aware that many of these imbalances are associated with internal as well as external factors to include infectious disease and ever increasing toxins found in our environment. Thyroid hormone is required by every cell on our bodies which means thyroid function directly impacts gastrointestinal function, liver detoxification, our adrenal hormones, brain function and bone health to name a few. Based on years of clinical experience, up to date research and hands on patient care, Dr. Amy has strategically built thyroid panels to help identify the root cause of thyroid imbalances.
