Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) for thyroid management
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)

Botanical and other natural interventions for both overactive and under active thyroid are discussed. The treatment protocol is determined by the cause of thyroid dysfunction, most notably maladaptive response to stress resulting in chronically high cortisol levels, genetic factors and environmental toxicity. He also addresses the increase in Graves’ disease in the adolescent population. Speaker: Kenneth Proefrock, NMD. (Product Code: 05SW03)

Botanicals for Modulating Thyroid Hormones and the Reproductive System

A review of the synergy between these hormonal systems explores why female distance runners of low body weight often become amenorrhoeic; women with thyroid disease may struggle with fertility; and women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) have both reproductive and thyroid hormone imbalances. Botanicals for restoring balance are included in this comprehensive presentation. Speaker: Jillian Stansbury, ND (Product Code: 10ME30)

Thyroid Disorders, the Underlying Causes and their Effective Treatment with Natural Remedies

This presentation begins by addressing the underlying causes and treatment options for hypothyroidism. It continues with botanical protocols for autoimmune thyroid disease (Graves’ and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), which can have similar treatment plans by down-regulating excessive immune function and re-regulating a disordered immune system. Nutrients also play a pivotal role in restoring balance in both hypo an hyperthyroid conditions. Other topics: management of thyroid nodules including goiter and recommendations for thyroid cancer. Speaker: David Winston, RH (AHG). (Product Code: 19SW05)
