Anxiety Can Indicate Thyroid Dysfunction
The thyroid gland is one of the smallest glands in the body, but has some of the most powerful influences on the way a person feels. Anxiety is one of the most common symptoms of thyroid dysfunction and can be experienced whether the thyroid is overworking or not work hard enough. Dr. Krysten has experience managing hyper- and hypothyroid states, as well as autoimmune-linked Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves disease. She relies on the use of botanical medicine and thyroid-specific nutritional supplementation to encourage hormone balance and support the efficiency of thyroid pharmaceuticals.
Anxiety Can Begin at Menopause
Every woman experiences menopause differently. Some don't experience any symptoms and others are plagued with hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia and yes, anxiety. Fortunately, Dr. Krysten has found a number of tools to help manage symptoms of anxiety and support the body through the hormone transition. These can include herbal and nutritional supports, acupuncture treatments or just diet and lifestyle changes.
