What are thyroid complaints?

Thyroid complaints fall into the category of
autoimmune diseases
. We can divide thyroid symptoms into two groups: a thyroid gland that works too fast or a thyroid gland that works too slow.

An underactive thyroid gland is the most common of all thyroid complaints. About half a million Dutch people suffer from a thyroid gland that works too slowly.

The thyroid gland (also called thyroid) is a very small but very important organ. It is located at the front of the neck, against the esophagus. Only four arteries go to the thyroid.

Complaints sluggish thyroid

Thyroid symptoms can affect your life quite a bit. The thyroid gland makes thyroid hormone. This is important for many functions in the body, such as proper heart rate, blood pressure, growth, energy, burning of fats and your mood.

Therefore, when your thyroid gland is not working properly, you can have serious health problems. With a slow-working thyroid, you may be extremely tired and have trouble losing weight.

If you have a thyroid that works too fast, the opposite actually happens. You may feel very agitated and have difficulty falling asleep.

Treatment thyroid complaints

Fortunately, it is possible to treat thyroid symptoms naturally. At BodySwitch, we always look for the cause of thyroid symptoms first.

To determine the cause, we do a comprehensive analysis of your symptoms. In doing so, we take an integrated approach and (if necessary) use specialized laboratory tests (blood and stool).

Based on the results of the analysis, we create a personalized treatment plan.

The great thing about BodySwitch is that we don’t fight the symptoms, but we tackle the problem from the core.

This is the only way we can get rid of your problems!

A year ago, I came to BodySwitch with many physical complaints. I was on medication for a slow-working thyroid and also suffered from osteoarthritis. Pretty soon after starting treatment, I was able to abandon the medication because my thyroid was functioning properly again. I now have energy for ten again. Unbelievable what healthy food and lifestyle can do!

Treatment pathway for thyroid disease

Step 1: Analysis

We start treatment with a comprehensive analysis. To find out where your symptoms are coming from, it is necessary for us to know a lot about you. We collect this information by:

  • a comprehensive online questionnaire
  • a food diary
  • a comprehensive intake interview
  • Additional laboratory tests (blood and stool)

By analyzing all available information, we gain insight into the factors that may play a role in causing thyroid symptoms.

Step 2: Personalized treatment plan

Based on the results of the analysis phase, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you. Our treatment plan focuses on addressing the factors causing thyroid symptoms.

It is well known that nutrition can have a major impact on thyroid symptoms. Therefore, we create a personalized nutrition and supplement plan that focuses on the recovery of your body. We also provide comprehensive exercise advice, which is specifically tailored to your conditioning situation.

The goal of treatment is that you quickly feel better, symptoms diminish and you have more energy.

Step 3: Guidance

The results of your treatment depend in part on your motivation and discipline. To guide you through this, our specialists pay close attention to coaching and knowledge transfer.

To properly monitor progress, we schedule regular follow-up consultations. We will discuss the interim results with you and, if necessary, have additional laboratory tests done.

We can also adjust the treatment plan in the interim if necessary.

Thyroid complaints: Background and Insights

The development of thyroid problems can have several causes. Major causes are nutritional deficiencies of important minerals such as iodine and selenium.
In addition to nutritional deficiencies, proper foods can also cause problems directly or indirectly. Consider the role of gluten and dairy that can cause autoimmune reactions.

Inflammation (low grade) can also cause autoimmune reactions of the thyroid gland. Again, the status of the gut plays a big role. A so-called hyper permeable gut can cause autoimmune reactions on many fronts through the body including the thyroid gland.
