Hypothyroidism is a condition affecting approximately 10% of women and 6% of men in the United States.
Here’s What You Need To Know
Primary hypothyroidism is a problem with the thyroid itself from issues such as iodine deficiency, autoimmune disease, surgery, radiation, or infection.
Secondary hypothyroidism involves signaling from the brain and glands.
Chiropractic Treats The Root Cause
Because subluxation affects the brain’s ability to control and regulate the functions of the body, it can play a role in hypothyroidism.
A recent study published in the chiropractic literature reported on a 34-year-old woman who
presented to a chiropractic office with low back pain, hip pain, upper back pain, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and secondary hypothyroidism, with which she had suffered for years.
She began chiropractic care with the intention of improving her body’s functioning.
No More Meds!
After 8 months of care, she was surprised to find that not only had her pain and IBS improved, but her thyroid was functioning so much better that she had to come off her medications in order for it to properly regulate!
