Providing nourishing and restorative support for a healthy thyroid and a healthy weight. The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland that sits just below the Adam’s apple and regulates a myriad of functions in the body, including overall metabolic rate. The metabolic rate determines how well the body creates energy (as ATP) and this, in turn, affects weight, body temperature, energy levels, immune function, fertility and other functions.
Symptoms of low thyroid function can include:
- Low energy, fatigue, lethargy
- Weight gain, difficulty losing weight
- Dry skin
- Hair loss, thinning hair
- Cold hands and feet, cold intolerance
- Joint problems
- Muscle aches
- Infertility and other hormonal imbalances

Begins when the irregular periods have progressed to the point where a woman’s periods have ceased for at least twelve months. During this time, women can experience a number of bodily changes, from hot flashes to fatigue and more.
Menstrual pain and irregularities can be caused by many different contributing factors including diet, exercise, lifestyle and family history. We perform a thorough health history questionnaire to determine the root cause of your signs and symptom, which includes tongue and pulse diagnosis.

Stress contributes enormously to overall and can contribute to the frequency missed periods, shorten or prolonged periods and PMS. Acupuncture and custom herbal formulas are very effective in helping to manage stress and balance hormones.
