The Mayo Clinic has determined that as much as 10 percent of the population suffers from thyroid problems and it appears to be on the increase. Dr. Brownstein, a medical doctor who specializes in thyroid disorders believes the percentage is much higher at an estimated 60 – 70%.
Why Do These Problems Exist?
Why are we seeing so many more cases today than ever before? We believe in addition to lack of nutrition that a large piece of the puzzle is due to our exposure to radiation with all of the massive increase of technology over the past few years. Radiation has a huge impact on our endocrine system, especially the thyroid. If someone comes into our office and they have many of the symptoms of a thyroid disorder, but no indication of that on their blood work, we most definitely will work with them to treat their thyroid.
