Thyroid Health and Functional Medicine
Digital Doc Webinar Series
The thyroid, a gland resembling a butterfly in shape, is an integral part of our endocrine system. It produces hormones that regulate various functions such as metabolism, growth, and development. Notably, the thyroid plays a crucial role in heart function, brain development, muscle growth, and digestive function. However, when the thyroid receives or transmits inaccurate information, it can lead to the development of several disorders over time.
Join us for an informative webinar where Dr. Alexandra MacKillop, a Functional Medicine physician, delves into common thyroid conditions. During the session, she discusses triggers, symptoms, and treatment options from the perspective of Functional Medicine. The webinar will cover both hyperthyroidism, characterized by an overactive thyroid (such as Grave’s Disease, Thyroiditis, and toxic nodular goiters), and hypothyroidism, which refers to an underactive thyroid (such as Hashimoto’s, Hypothalamic Hypothyroidism, and peripheral conversion defects). Don’t miss out on this opportunity to gain valuable insights into thyroid health and well-being.
