Heal Your Thyroid Disorder Naturally

Why It’s So Important to Heal Your Thyroid

Why do I feel so bad, and why can’t anyone find out what’s wrong with me?

These are all too familiar questions that I hear from patients when they have been to multiple doctors with little to no improvement. The symptoms, mostly women report, are these:

Symptoms for Hypothyroidism

  • Fatigue
  • General feeling of cold all over…cold hands and feet
  • Hair that is thinning or falling out
  • Constipation/IBS (Irritable Bowel Symptoms)
  • Can’t lose weight, even on a low carb diet
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Outer 1/3 of the eyebrow is thinning
  • Dry skin
  • Excessive amounts of sleep is required in order to function properly
  • Mental sluggishness
  • Muscle achiness
  • Morning headaches that wear off as the day goes on

Symptoms for Hyperthyroidism:

  • Anxiety
  • Sleeplessness
  • Trembling
  • Weight Loss
  • Fatigue
  • Bulging Eyes
  • Joint and Muscle Pain

Do these symptoms sound familiar?

You may not have all the symptoms, but if you have 3-4, there is a good chance your thyroid gland may be involved.

Why is a healthy Thyroid so important?

Although your thyroid gland is a small, bean-sized gland, every cell in your body depends on thyroid hormone function. This tiny gland is located behind your Adam’s apple, and it produces hormones that you cannot live without, and if it isn’t working at an optimal level, you cannot expect to have good energy.

The thyroid gland is like a pilot light for a furnace. When it gets cold in the house, the pilot light will ignite the furnace and the increased heat will warm the house. If your thyroid gland is low functioning, there is not enough circulating hormone to bring oxygen and energy into your cells to keep your body warm and energetic.

Many people with thyroid problems, the majority of which are women, complain of low energy and feeling cold, among other symptoms. The thyroid is part of your endocrine system, each part of which works together to regulate all your hormones.

Low thyroid function can affect just about every system of the body.

Treating your thyroid disorder…

The current medical model for thyroid treatment in mainstream medicine is stuck in a time warp…Even though our understanding of the thyroid function has greatly
evolved traditional medicine is stuck in a medication hormone replacement only

Today, if you seek care from a traditional MD or endocrinologist, you will either get thyroid replacement, told you don’t need replacement, or, if your condition can no longer be managed with thyroid replacement you will be urged to have your thyroid taken out if you have hyperthyroidism.

This very narrow approach does not take into account what the current research information is very clear about concerning thyroid problems, that they are caused by multiple mechanisms, including digestive, adrenal gland, blood sugar and liver problems, with the most common being autoimmunity. If this is true, why hasn’t the medical profession updated their treatment models? Unfortunately, this outdated approach is not likely to ever change
because of the medical professions’ overall dependence on the drug approach for all health conditions

I treat thyroid issues differently…

We look at the big picture, doing much more comprehensive testing that looks at the multiple factors that are causing your thyroid and who body metabolism problems.

I use the tool that the best doctors I know use:

Applied kinesiology (A.K.) is a holistic approach to health that uses the feed back response from the body via manual muscle testing.

Here are testimonials from 2 of my patients who have experienced great success:

I’m finally getting results! I’ve been struggling for a long time with thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, anemia, Hashimoto’s (thyroid disorder), inflammation and chronic neck pain. After many disappointing visits with multiple doctors, I found Dr. Taggart. Dr. Taggart quickly diagnosed my symptoms and created a simple program that I can follow with minimal effort that is producing outstanding results.”


I’m experiencing more energy, less pain, increased brain function, better balance, and I’m finally losing weight! And the neck and back adjustments are astounding! I’m so glad to have found Dr. Taggart. It feels so good to finally know exactly what to do to regain my health. Stop suffering and go see Dr. Taggart.” -Katherine S, Snoqualmie, WA
