Healing Hashimoto’s – Physician’s Training

Thyroid disease is rampant. People that have it are frustrated at getting poor care and being misunderstood. For me, there is nothing greater than being able to really help someone who has been suffering. People with thyroid disease are very appreciative when their health gets better. It is so satisfying to take someone that has been trying hard to figure it all out and confidently bring them back to health.

Thyroid disease has been the largest focus of my practice for over 16 years. After taking all the courses and reading all the books I could find, I continue to learn all that I can from the American Thyroid Association, the American Academy of Clinical Endocrinologists, Alternative ND’s, MD’s and DC’s.

Even with this education, my patients are often my best teachers. By realistic estimates, I’ve had over 50,000 patient visits pertaining to thyroid disease. Over the years, I’ve seen the failure of many great sounding theories. I’ve also seen some unexpected angles have amazing benefits. If nothing else, obsession does give perspective. This is what I’d like to share with you.

Imagine an ideal training event on the management of hypothyroidism. What would be the key questions, struggles and patient management techniques you’d love to learn?

In the interest of helping thyroid patients, I’d like to shorten your learning curve. I get so many questions from doctors around the world that I feel like I need to get this data out. Like you, I’m too time-starved to give the detailed answers they deserve.

You can listen to the audio and view the slides at your leisure.

I challenge you to take a minute and think about how many patients you serve that have thyroid disease. Are they all at ideal health? How much better would you feel if they were improving? How much more satisfying and rewarding would your practice be?
