  • Fatigue

  • Weight gain despite adhering to a low-calorie diet

  • Morning headaches that wear off as the day progresses

  • Depression

  • Constipation

  • Hypersensitivity to cold weather

  • Poor circulation and numbness in hands and feet

  • Muscle cramps while at rest

  • Increased susceptibility to colds and other viral or bacterial infections and difficulty recovering from them 

  • Slow wound healing

  • Excessive amount of sleep required to function properly 

  • Chronic digestive problems, such as lack of stomach acid (hypochlorhydria)

  • Itchy, dry skin

  • Dry or brittle hair

  • Hair falls out easily

  • Dry skin

  • Low axillary (body-heat) temperature, although this may also be caused by any hormonal imbalance

  • Edema, especially facial swelling (myxedema)

  • Loss of outermost portion of eyebrows

Dr. Justin Reese takes a fresh, in depth look at thyroid function, including how your thyroid is working, how the hormone is transported in your body, if it is being converted to the active version and how your cells may or may not be absorbing it. He also looks at whether or not your body has become resistant to that hormone. Dr. Justin Reese has dedicated the last 21 years to researching thyroid disorders, particularly hypothyroidism. He has pioneered alternative approaches to hypothyroidism using in depth blood testing, saliva hormone testing for hormones that impact the thyroid, and even low level laser therapy for hypothyroidism.
