Great, easy to understand article from a colleague of mine explaining the various thyroid blood tests and why testing TSH alone doesn’t give the full picture.
The full bloodwork thyroid panel with TSH, free T4, free T3 and TPO is currently available to clients through our clinic in Canmore for under $100. (403) 609-8385.
Dr. Monika Herwig ND has lived and practiced Naturopathic Medicine in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Canmore, Alberta for over 20 years. She supports ambitious heart centered women who support others and have visions they care about (so all moms!) to share their gifts and shine their light in the world without burning themselves out. Individuals who are interested in long term wellness and living a life of freedom, peace and joy while staying true to themselves and what they hold dear. She uses a holistic, functional medicine East-West approach in addressing (and getting rid of for good) superficial symptoms. Dr. Monika views symptoms as just a sign that one of the three main foundations in the body is out of balance. These 3 foundations are CLEAR , CALM, CREATE. Symptoms whether they be constipation, low energy, weight gain abdominally, frequent colds, PMS, anxiety, allergies, headaches, infertility, digestion being off, adult acne, eczema, low thyroid are all a call to action from our beautiful bodies pointing us to what area/s are out of balance so we can take the first next step to get those foundations back. Dr. Monika has created Naturopathic Foundations Coaching Programs around these three principles to give you the support that she has found creating change and changing habits needs.
