We offer pharmaceutical grade  nutraceuticals to optimize your bio-identical hormone therapy and overall health.....but first a word about your thyroid.

Did you know 30-40% of Americans are hypothyroid? That is 52 million people! What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid)?.....fatigue, depression, cold intolerance, dry skin, weight gain, joint pain, constipation and  high cholesterol. Lab work is important to make a correct diagnosis, but it should only be used as a guide when determining a patient's correct dose. It is important to treat the patient's symptoms not their lab, using the lab only as a guide to make sure the person is not on too much thyroid replacement. Dr. Trussell has  recently shifted her thoughts on the type of thyroid hormone replacement she prefers. Dr. Trussell had always prescribed and always taken Synthroid herself, which is synthetic and made only of T4 (thyroxine). Research from the European Journal of Endocrinology shows that T3 is the thyroid hormone needed for fat loss. T3 protects against arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms) and heart disease. T3 decreases with stress and with dieting.  Not everyone can adequately convert T4 (the prohormone) to T3 (the active thyroid hormone). Therefore Dr. Trussell is  proactively changing to WP thyroid or Naturthroid, or Armour Thyroid which is a dessicated preparation and contains T4 AND T3.
