There are 27 million people with thyroid disease that are being under diagnosed and not being treated correctly.
A lot of people are taking medication and it doesn’t seem to be working. This is because, when it comes to thyroid problems, there are certain hormones that need to get into the cell. However, the thyroid controls every cell in the body and has an effect on metabolism and energy.
Dr. Faria looks at the cause of the hypothyroid or thyroid problem. Statin, or cholesterol, drugs won’t work if it is a thyroid problem. They were only raise your cholesterol levels. IF it is a thyroid problem, then the thyroid needs to be corrected. That’s what Dr. Faria does from a functional integrative medicine point of view — either making the medicines your on work better or even getting you to the point where you might not even need the medicines anymore.
