Per the American Thyroid Association, “more than 12 percent of the US population will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime”. That equates to approximately 20 million Americans that have some form of thyroid disease. Wow, I would call that an epidemic!
Hair loss, fatigue, weight gain and a myriad of other symptoms can indicate a thyroid disorder. If you suspect you have a thyroid disorder, please book an appointment with us or see your health practitioner as soon as possible. Long term thyroid disorders do a number on the body and are best treated as early as possible.
With that said, the healthcare community has a unique challenge to service this large number of people. In response to the demand, our Huntington office has made Holistic Health Coaching consultations, that can include thyroid evaluation, a virtual experience. Virtual holistic wellness consultations provide a convenience to the client, and an access to a broader range of online holistic doctors that may not be in their local area, which allow people to find a doctor that is more in line with their health goals. Recognizing that time is our most valuable human resource, making healthcare evaluation easy for the client to receive must be a top priority in today’s fast paced world.
Upon receiving the results, Dr. Skip, O.M.D. can then recommend a nutritional holistic protocol specific to the thyroid to address any abnormalities. Please note a virtual client will be required to maintain a local Primary Care Physician or Endocrinologist. We are happy to work in tandem with your local provider. While no medical diagnosis is given, your health coaching is given to naturally optimize thyroid nutrition and underlying function for an holistic wellness approach. All virtual health coaching patients must have at least one in-person local Huntington office visit for on-boarding and continued care.
