When Thyroid Hormones Fail Us – A Free Talk

Jul 29, 2016 10:58AM
Even though many women are taking thyroid hormones and their lab tests state that they are “normal”, up to 90 percent continue to suffer from many of the symptoms. Dr. Serena Satcher, M.D., is offering a free wellness talk to help break out of this cycle by discussing the root causes of hypothyroidism and natural ways to overcome it. The date and time of the talk will be made available upon registration.

In her practice, Satcher has worked with women who continue to suffer from a list of symptoms, including:

  • tiredness and insomnia
  • inability to lose weight
  • cold hands and feet
  • constipation
  • depression and lack of motivation
  • thinning hair and acne
  • memory problems or brain fog
  • feelings of nervousness and heart palpitations
The traditional approach is to drive the labs into the “normal” range by giving thyroid replacement hormones, such as synthetic thyroid hormones. This drug-only approach is not helping most of the women who try it.

In her free talk, Satcher will provide information that will help sufferers to understand the underlying cause of 85 to 90 percent of hypothyroidism in the U.S, why it’s destroying not only the thyroid gland, and other glands and tissues as well, why taking thyroid medication may not help and why a personalized approach is essential.

Satcher, an M.D. and certified in PMR, functional medicine (IFMCP) and integrative medicine, specializes in metabolic and autoimmune problems affecting the glands, nervous system and musculoskeletal system, with an office in Fairfax.
