When the thyroid produces too much hormone, the body uses energy faster than it should. This condition is called hyperthyroidism. When the thyroid doesn't produce enough hormone, the body uses energy slower than it should, this condition is called hypothyroidism.
Low testosterone is underproduction or lack of production of testosterone in men and women. We treat low testosterone due to aging and other hormonal conditions. Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that are only prescribed following a comprehensive individual medical assessment and careful testing.
Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care system that combines modern scientific medical knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine to treat the underlying cause of illnesses.
