Chiropractic Care for Improved Thyroid Function in Cape Coral
The thyroid gland is an important part of the function of every cell in the body. It is responsible for regulating the heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, proper body growth, and metabolism. When there is a problem with the thyroid and it isn’t functioning as it should, it can affect how you feel and how your body functions. When the thyroid isn’t working properly, it can lead to thyroid disorders and health problems. Chiropractic care could be the solution for your thyroid issues.
Common Symptoms of Thyroid Malfunction
There are two different ways the thyroid can malfunction: either it overproduces or underproduces hormones that are needed by the body. Hyperthyroidism leads to an increase in the production of hormones, while hypothyroidism leads to a decrease in hormones. Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism each have health concerns and come with a list of signs and symptoms. No matter how minor or severe your symptoms are, since they affect your daily life, it’s of utmost importance to address these issues before they become a bigger problem.
Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism:
- Rapid heart rate
- Overactive bowels
Symptoms of Hypothyroidism:
- Loss of hair
- Inability to concentrate
- Unexplained weight gain
How to Manage Thyroid Problems
The most common approach to managing thyroid problems is to take medication. While medication may help improve some symptoms, it may not be the best solution since it doesn’t get to the root cause of what is causing the thyroid to malfunction. Medications also come with a list of potential side effects. Upper cervical chiropractic care offers a safe and natural alternative to medication for managing thyroid health. Misalignments of the spine, specifically in the C7 vertebra, can impact thyroid health and hinder it from functioning as it should. Since misalignments can disrupt nerve communication from our brain and the rest of our body, when these misalignments are corrected, the body can function at optimal levels. Upper cervical chiropractic care with Dr. Omar Clark is a long-term solution for healthy thyroid function.
How Has Chiropractic Helped Others?
Case studies have shown that upper cervical chiropractic care can be an effective way to improve thyroid function. A particular study was conducted on a 50-year-old man who had been taking synthetic thyroid medication to help improve his thyroid disorder. After regular visits to his chiropractor, his thyroid levels improved so much that he was able to decrease the dosage of his thyroid medication and also enjoyed better overall health and wellbeing. Another case study involved a 34-year-old woman who was suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and hypothyroidism. After regular chiropractic care, her symptoms were resolved and she no longer needed medication after just 2 short months of chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic care can help you too!
