Dr. Anne Hermann is an expert in natural thyroid replacement therapy. The thyroid gland is located in the lower part of your neck and plays a major role in your metabolism and energy levels. Conventional thyroid replacement therapy uses a synthetic compound, which only replaces one of the two thyroid hormones. The natural form contains both T3 and T4 hormones, as opposed to the synthetic version which only has T4, resulting in a more efficient bodily response with fewer side effects.
Thyroid imbalances occur when your thyroid produces too few thyroid hormones (T3, T4) and can result in:
- Cold feet/hands
- Muscle aches or weakness
- Unexplained weight gain
- Hair loss
- Puffiness or swelling in the face
- Cold intolerance
- Heart palpitations
- Increased pulse
Dr. Hermann assesses your current thyroid hormone levels and customizes a natural alternative therapy regimen specially designed for you. She will prescribe either Armour Thyroid or Nature-Throid, both natural purified thyroid hormones (as opposed to synthetically created hormones)
