Acupuncture Improves Thyroid Function!

By Dr. Kathleen Albertson, L. Ac., PhD

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is effective in treating thyroid disorders. Read how!


Hyper and hypo-thyroid problems stem from auto-immune imbalances.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine are successful treatments in balancing the immune system and treating thyroid disorders.

Women suffer more than men when it comes to thyroid issues and it can cause major upsets in your health when left untreated, undiagnosed, or treated incorrectly. Hypothyroid is most common with symptoms of fatigue, weight gain, and lethargy.

In my practice, many patients have thyroid problems secondary to other health issues, and western medicine can only give medication, after medication to treat symptom after symptom. Medications often cause thyroid imbalance!

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is effective and successful. Treatment is recognized by the World Health Organization!

It treats the root cause and by doing so, corrects other imbalances that occurred as a result of the immune disorder.

So why not feel better and get to the root of your issue?? Seek alternative treatment that can change your health" and your quality of life. Life is too short and precious to be too tired to enjoy it. Acupuncture reduces stress, improves your immune system, and helps you overcome hundreds of health problems quickly and easily.

"Most of my patients absolutely love their acupuncture treatments; reporting that they feel calm, relaxed, grounded and energetic. And it doesn't hurt!"
