Functional Medicine. A New Day to Feel Better!

January is Thyroid Month

The thyroid helps the body use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should.

How well is your thyroid working? Low thyroid function can cause weight gain, low mood, low energy, brain fog, hair loss and more.

Low thyroid function can be due to specific nutritional deficiencies, dysfunction of other hormone systems, stress and/or lack of sleep. That’s why diet, exercise and stress control are vital to maintaining healthy thyroid function. Dr. Tuttle can evaluate you and do an in-depth thyroid evaluation to determine why your thyroid isn’t working properly.

Thyroid Superfoods:
• Seaweed
• Antioxidant Rich Vegetables
