The Thyroid Debacle
The Undiagnosed Epidemic of Cellular Hypothyroidism by Eric Balcavage, DC
In Dr. Eric Balcavage’s eye-opening new book The Thyroid Debacle, readers will discover why hypothyroidism is not just a random dysfunction of the thyroid gland as outlined for decades by the medical model, but often the result of underlying cellular stressors rarely addressed. Stress as the result of chemical, physical, emotional and microbial stressors from major life events, the environment, poor nutrition, infections, demanding physical activity and many more, can all trigger chronic cellular stress impacting thyroid health. The result of this cellular stress? A condition called Cellular Hypothyroidism; a concept rarely discussed… until now!
Try Something Different
Our Functional Medicine practice is one of the most unique in the entire country.
We start by getting to the basics of what causes health challenges including the primary stressors: Physical, Chemical, Emotional, and Microbial. At Rejuvagen, treatments are personalized based on the patient’s unique individual biological needs. Through advanced therapies and functional testing not offered in the traditional medical model, we can identify when the body is not functioning correctly and potentially address the problems before disease is even identified.
