January is Thyroid Awareness Month–Make Wellness Your PriorityJanuary 19, 2022
Did you resolve to make your health a priority this year? Then you are in the right place, especially if you’ve noticed that you’re already struggling a bit with feeling low energy and low motivation.
Hi, I’m Dr. Annie Savage, one of the naturopathic doctors helping women and men to get their health back on track. Our practice is open to you at the Bay Wellness Centre located in downtown Vancouver.
So, what could be zapping your energy already so early in the New Year? Well, it might just be your thyroid gland, so let’s talk about optimizing your thyroid.
While most people do know something about their thyroid gland, located in your neck, few know just how many symptoms are actually associated with an under active gland, or hypothyroid condition.
You might be experiencing these symptoms:
- Low motivation
- Some joint and muscular pain
- Added weight and a slower metabolism
This may make you feel slower and bigger overall.
How your thyroid gland is at the centre of your personal health system
Your thyroid is the “mother gland”. As a result, the thyroid hormone is actually affecting all of our other hormones in our system, in particular for women. We really want to have an optimally functioning thyroid gland so that the thyroid hormone can work in conjunction with our female hormones, also. This becomes very important when we approach the age range of perimenopause and menopause as well.
Why not take this opportunity to mother yourself, just like your thyroid gland?
The mother gland in the body is helping you with all of your body systems. It’s time to put
your thyroid first and help it work as best as it can. Get properly diagnosed with specialized
lab testing so that you can know exactly what’s going on and optimize the functioning of your thyroid gland today. Read more about your thyroid gland and how you can help it work better for you in this blog on our website.
January is Thyroid Awareness Month.
If you are like the patients we serve, professional women, moms or women managing multiple roles in their home and workplace, isn’t it time you got support for long lasting and permanent change for your energy and quality of life?
Make health your priority this year.
