Thyroid Function, Assessment & Intervention

Learn to identify the signs of both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism from a functional perspective.  Know what questions to ask and how to determine why dysfunction is present.  More importantly, become adept at addressing the cause of the dysfunction. 

This advanced module goes in depth about the creation, transport and conversion of the thyroid hormone, how other organs and body systems interact with thyroid function to create a healthy body system, and what happens when something goes wrong.   A solid understanding of the anatomy & physiology of the thryoid gland is integral in recognizing the underlying causes of thyroid dysfunction.  

 Tests?  Of course there are lab tests! Learn about the in-depth tests that can help your thyroid detective work, when to test and what the results tell you about the health of your client.   Skillfully interpret the results and understand what those results mean about specific thyroid function.  What’s more – you’ll learn how to evaluate free t4, t3, reverse t3, tsh, tbg and thyroid antibodies.   You will also learn methods on how to help your clients home test.  Get access to a few case studies and familiarize yourself with lab evaluation practices.

 Want more?  Master topics that shed light on the role of gluten in thyroid autoimmunity, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, Graves disease, and the role of the immune system in thyroid autoimmunity.  How commonly prescribed medications can disrupt thyroid function, what nutrients can support it, and other factors that can support thyroid function.  

All the tools are right at your fingertips.  Not only will you get detailed knowledge and interpretation skills, you will also have access to nutritional guidelines for healing thyroid dysfunction and restoring health to your clients, as well as which dietary toxins are the most common offenders in dysfunction.   Learn the role of goitrogens in thyroid health, the effect of inflammation, leaky gut & autoimmunity on thyroid function.    

Why is this important? 

The thyroid’s role in health is huge!  The thyroid gland is the master of metabolic function throughout your body; it controls metabolism at a cellular level.  It is responsible for numerous physiological functions and plays a key role in regulating body temperature, glucose & hormone metabolism, nutrient absorption and digestion.  It also influences liver function, aging, cholesterol levels and metabolism.  So, what happens when things go wrong…..?

Certain signs or symptoms might come to mind: memory loss, mood swings, hair loss, temperature disregulation, metabolism regulatory problems……. and that’s not even the tip of the iceberg!  Thryoid function is integral to health and well-being.  Knowledge of the thyroid, how it functions, and understanding how it effects our body systems, are powerful tools in helping improve both your health, and that of your clients.
