Orland Park’s Natural Remedies for Thyroid & Hormone Problems

Your thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped organ located in your neck, just below your Adam’s apple. Its job is to secrete hormones that regulate a wide variety of bodily functions including:

  • Metabolism
  • Heart function
  • Body temperature
  • Digestive function
  • Muscle control
  • Brain development
  • Bone health

Symptoms of Thyroid Imbalance

Because your thyroid has so many very important functions, thyroid problems can lead to many other serious symptoms. Our patients in Orland Park who are dealing with thyroid problems are experiencing symptoms like:

  • Weight gain or sudden weight loss
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of libido
  • Dry and rough skin
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscle cramps or aches
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Memory problems
  • Abnormal menstrual cycles
  • Depression, anxiety, and irritability

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important for you to have your thyroid and hormonal levels tested, as thyroid issues can become increasingly severe if left untreated. People often suffer for years with these symptoms, suffering needlessly and not understanding what is happening to them. However, there are many safe, natural and homeopathic remedies that can help improve your thyroid and hormonal concerns to significantly help rejuvenate your overall functional health.

The thyroid is an extremely sensitive organ that is very responsive to what we consume and the environment that we live in. Natural remedies have been used for thousands of years to treat conditions that we now know are caused by a malfunctioning thyroid. The natural world is full of substances that help us to balance female hormone production and help restore natural, healthy thyroid performance.

Our patients in Orland Park have experienced dramatic improvements in their overall health and energy levels after receiving treatment for their thyroid conditions. We will find a course of natural treatment that responds to each patient’s individual symptoms, family history, and sensitivities. Dr. Van Lopik has years of experience as a naturopathic physician, and you can be sure that his expertise will translate into an evaluation and treatment strategy that is right for you.
