Our Areas of Focus
What are Thyroid Conditions?
Your thyroid is a small organ consisting of two lobes located in the base of your neck responsible for creating and releasing hormones. Many of these hormones are responsible for the growth and development of the body, temperature regulation, nutrient utilization, hormone transport, and metabolism. Your metabolism actually works using a complex system of hormones that signal hunger and fullness, temperature, and blood pressure, as well as digestion and passing food along the digestive tract. Conditions like hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism can speed up or slow down your metabolism respectively, causing your body trouble getting the vitamins, nutrients, and energy it needs. A metabolic rate that is too fast or too slow can impact the function of your entire body, causing symptoms like fatigue, weight fluctuations, mood problems, hot or cold flashes, and feelings of illness.
What Causes Thyroid Conditions?
There are many causes of thyroid conditions – they may be autoimmune, genetic, lifestyle, or exposure related, and can even be caused by select medications or radiation treatments. Some women also develop thyroid conditions during or after pregnancy. Although typically not common in our country, Thyroid disease can also be caused by iodine deficiency, a common additive in table salt.
How Can Stem Cells Help Thyroid Conditions?
The goal for the use of stem cell therapy with thyroid conditions is to identify the root cause attributed to the disease and begin creating a protocol to address that issue. Stem cell therapy can be helpful for people with thyroid conditions because it can help modulate the immune system to fight autoimmune disease, decrease inflammation, address gut-related issues, and repair diseased tissue. In addressing all of these issues, functional medicine and stem cell therapy can help balance and restore the function of the thyroid. By bringing hormone levels to a more appropriate level, you can experience relief from the symptoms of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
Stem Cell Therapy for Thyroid Conditions
Stem cell therapy for thyroid conditions can be derived from autologous tissue or a screened donor source. In either case, they’re safe and carry a low risk of adverse reactions. These Stem cells are typically administered intravenously and therapy can be performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can return home immediately afterward. Other components of treatment for thyroid conditions may include ozone, peptide, and supplement therapies. During your consultation with our team of stem cell experts, we’ll develop personalized therapy for your needs and discuss what you can expect before, during, and after.
