What is


Thyroid conditions encompass a range of disorders affecting the thyroid gland's function, including hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). This also divides into a primary thyroid issue or an autoimmunity, namely Graves disease (hyperthyroidism) and Hashimoto's (hypothyroidism). Because the thyroid governs the metabolic processes in your body, if the thyroid is out of balance it can affect so many processes and leads to a wide range of disruptive symptoms.


Hypothyroidism Symptoms:

  • Persistent fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Joint pain
  • Depression
  • Memory impairment
  • Slow heart rate
  • Thin, brittle hair
  • Hoarseness
  • Menstrual irregularities in women

Hyperthyroidism Symptoms:

  • Increased appetite
  • Frequent bowel movements
  • Heat intolerance
  • Irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
  • Fine tremor in hands or fingers
  • Bulging eyes (Graves' disease)
  • Thin, fragile skin
  • Increased sweating
  • Changes in menstrual patterns in women

Treatment options

The most important first step is identifying the type of thyroid condition you have and where it is coming from, whether it is a primary issue or autoimmune disease. You may already have a diagnosis to bring to your naturopath. If not, we will do some testing. We then consider any underlying imbalances through lifestyle modifications, stress management, and identifying potential triggers such as food sensitivities that might contribute to the thyroid imbalance. 

From here we can offer nutritional support through diet and supplementation as well as herbal medicine to bring the thyroid back into balance. This can be in absence of medication or alongside the use of the medication.
