Is thyroid disease one of the most under-diagnosed, mistreated and untreated diseases?
We see many people in practice suffering from what they believe may be an isolated condition ie chronic inflammation in the joints, only to discover it as a symptom of thyroid disease.
I do wonder often when women present themselves as chronically down, tired, apathetic, unenthusiastic and sluggish if it is really an undiagnosed thyroid condition. Life is too short to be just ‘existing’, believing that is just the way things are..
We should be vital, enthusiastic about life and able to feel joy and excitement. If that is not the case it is easy to think ‘it’s just me’ or ‘I have always felt like this’ or even to be told by your GP that there ‘is nothing wrong with you’. I believe change and feeling alive and well is possible. Sometimes you have to look elsewhere.

Every cell of the body requires thyroid hormone for proper functioning, so symptoms of hypothyroidism can result in every part of the body. Research reveals hypothyroidism is linked to heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer, issues with the liver, kidneys, gall bladder, mental health, pregnancy complications, and more.

Unfortunately testing in this country under the NHS is inadequate. Private testing will show a full picture, though symptoms in themselves are very revealing.
At Botanica our dedicated practitioner’s can arrange private testing if it is required for you. We can also advise you on diet and prescribe herbal medicine and other medications where appropriate.
We find ReMag, ReLyte and Ashwaganda beneficial to support thyroid health. Being wheat free and adding in healthy fats to your diet will be hugely beneficial. A high quality B Complex and C is also suggested.
