Understanding Hyperthyroidism at Modern Thyroid Clinic
Hyperthyroidism, often termed as an overactive thyroid, occurs when the thyroid gland produces an excess of thyroid hormones.

Understanding Hashimoto's at Modern Thyroid Clinic
Hashimoto's thyroiditis, commonly referred to as Hashimoto's, is an autoimmune disorder wherein the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This can lead to chronic inflammation and often results in an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Symptoms can vary but often include fatigue, weight gain, joint and muscle pain, a slowed heart rate, and depression.
At Modern Thyroid Clinic, we're at the forefront of Hashimoto's care, offering:
- Thorough Assessments: Accurate diagnosis is pivotal. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools ensure we understand the intricacies of your condition, allowing for tailored treatment plans.

- Medication Management: We'll work with you to get you to perfect thyroid function because that's what we believe it takes for you to get your life back from hypothyroidism.
- Holistic Approaches: Recognizing the multifaceted nature of Hashimoto's, we incorporate holistic therapies. From stress-reducing techniques to supplements, we aim to provide a well-rounded care experience.
- Autoimmune Strategy: As an autoimmune condition, Hashimoto's benefits from a broader approach that addresses immune system health. We'll explore strategies to modulate and support your immune system, reducing the risk of flare-ups.
At Modern Thyroid Clinic, we understand the complexities of Hashimoto's and the unique challenges it presents. Our mission is to provide you with the most advanced, compassionate, and comprehensive care available.

The intricate dance of hormones defines many stages of a woman's life, and as these hormones ebb and flow, they bring about changes that can deeply impact well-being. At Modern Thyroid Clinic, we specialize in guiding people through these transitions, with a particular focus on the intersection of reproductive or menopausal hormone imbalances.
Our comprehensive women's health consulting includes:
- Personalized Menopause Support: We pride ourselves in taking research-based, unique and intricately supportive approach to helping women thrive during their season of menopause.
- Adrenal Support: Around 85% or so of our thyroid patients all have some level of adrenal dysfunction interfering with their quality of life. Addressing this plays a huge role in allowing patients to feel energized, clear and motivated and we truly feel our approach yields the best results in an extremely short period of time.
- Addressing Hashimoto's: Much of the time Hashimoto's is completely ignored and it's such an important piece to the puzzle and this is the area where functional medicine truly thrives. All of our clinicians are trained to search for and attempt to address the “root cause” of these conditions, attempting lower antibodies and ideally creating a state of remission. Not only does this improve your quality of life but it reduces long term health risks significantly.
- Integrated Approach: Recognizing the interconnected nature of hormones, we adopt an integrated approach. Our experts delve into the relationship between menopause, thyroid health, and other hormonal changes, crafting a holistic care plan tailored to your needs.
- Nutritional and Lifestyle Counseling: Diet and lifestyle can significantly influence hormonal balance and your thyroid condition. Our clinicians and health coaches guide you through choices that support both hormonal and thyroid health, promoting overall well-being.
At Modern Thyroid Clinic, we believe that every person deserves compassionate, expert care as they navigates the complexities of menopause and thyroid health. Our dedicated team is here to walk alongside you, offering the latest in medical science, holistic therapies, and a listening ear. With us, you're not just receiving care; you're joining a community dedicated to celebrating and supporting you during every stage of life.
