Specialising in treating thyroid conditions is something Sally is both passionate and highly skilled, after personally suffering from the auto immune /underactive thyroidcondition - Hashimoto's or autoimmune thyroiditis. Sally's expertise in this area has seen her successfully treat many women who have failed to be effectively diagnosed and treated using conventional methods.
Each and every case involving under or over active thyroid is viewed individually, as the cause and assessment of thyroid imbalance is particularly complex and can vary from case to case.
Sally conducts a thorough investigation into each patients case, incorporating comprehensice pathology testing and a medical case history assessment. This is then followed up with an individualised treatment program and ongoing symptom and pathology assessment.
Treating Thyroid conditions also involves addressing the function of the digestive and nervous system, as well as implementing the appropriate dietary changes as guided by Sally.
The thyroid can be effectively treated utilising both nutritional and herbal supplements , but in some more progressed cases, it may be necessary to refer to a GP for thyroid hormone replacement, where Sally will work in conjunction with a chosen GP to manage your care.
It is important to note that measuring thyroid stimulating hormone - TSH in isolation is NOT an effective assessment of true thyroid function.
If your TSH levels are greater than 2.0, you are at an increased risk of developing hypothyroidism – UNDER ACTIVE THYROID.
An imbalanced thyroid can affect almost every aspect of your health and impact significantly on your day to day function and quality of life, so finding a long term solution to holistically manage your thyroid function is the key to freeing yourself from the burden it can have on your life.
