Understanding the Thyroid-Beyond the Numbers
Hypothyroidism (low thyroid) is commonly under-diagnosed and under-treated. For over 40 years, doctors have relied on a single test, whose validity is actually debatable, for diagnosis and treatment. This has left many people feeling chronically poor with nowhere to turn. We will examine an approach to diagnosing and treating hypothyroidism that results in people actually feeling well. Feel free to invite friends to watch this eye opening lecture from Dr. Klein.
Understanding Fatigue – What To Do When The Tests Are “Normal”
Chronic fatigue not due to an obvious medical disease, even if not diagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is becoming an increasing problem for which conventional medicine has produced very little in the way of actually helping people heal and feel well again. This is because, for most people, the underlying problems are due to disorders of function, which are very individual and not amenable to the disease-based, statistical approach of conventional medicine. We’ll review the most common causes of chronic fatigue and a proven approach to treatment that commonly results in people actually becoming well.
Understanding Hormone Balance – The Key to Healthy Aging
Modern life is extremely depleting to the hormone system. There is a significant body of evidence showing that low hormone levels cause accelerated aging and increase the risk of many chronic diseases. In addition, the risks of hormone replacement have been grossly exaggerated by interests that have a philosophical bias against such treatment. We’ll review the benefits of hormone replacement, particularly in men and post-menopausal women, discuss treatment options, and look at what the medical studies really say about the risks.
Understanding Gut Health – Don’t Just Manage It, Heal It!
It should go without saying that, if we cannot properly digest and assimilate our food, none of our body’s functions will be able to operate at an optimal level. Modern life with its highly processed foods, stress, and environmental exposures, especially drugs like antibiotics, wreaks havoc on our GI tracts. We’ll review the basic elements of establishing and maintaining a healthy gut using what has been called the “4R Program” – Remove, Replace, Re-inoculate, and Repair.
