Thyroid Condition Q & A

What is a thyroid condition?

A thyroid condition refers to illnesses and diseases that affect the structure or function of your thyroid, an endocrine gland. Located at the base of your neck, your thyroid makes and releases thyroid hormones.

Thyroid hormones control your metabolism, which is how your body uses food for energy. If you have a thyroid hormonal imbalance, the gland produces too much (hyperthyroidism) or not enough (hypothyroidism) of these hormones.

A thyroid condition may make it difficult to lose or gain weight. Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, completed an endocrinology residency program, along with an integrative medicine mentorship for infertility, and understands the details of hormones and how they affect health and wellness.

She takes a holistic approach to care, providing individual treatment plans that match your unique needs and explaining your thyroid condition through a natural lens, along with the treatments that can help.

What can I expect during a thyroid condition consultation?

You can expect a patient-centered consultation when you visit Heal SD for your thyroid condition. Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, takes the time to get to know you and understand how your condition affects your daily life. She asks detailed questions about your usual routine, including diet, exercise habits, mood, self-care, and stressors.

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, is trained in Ayurvedic medicine and performs a physical exam that includes a look at your tongue and skin and checking your pulse to find the source of your body’s imbalance. She uses the information she gathers from this exam to get a better understanding of your health.

She also orders advanced lab testing to get a closer look at your hormone levels and other elements that might affect hormone production or thyroid health.

What therapies can help my thyroid condition?

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, uses natural therapies to improve thyroid conditions. Before making any treatment recommendations, she spends time explaining your lab results and addressing any questions about your autoimmune thyroid condition.

An autoimmune condition is when your immune system attacks your own body. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (hypothyroidism) and Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism) are autoimmune thyroid conditions.

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, leans on natural and Ayurvedic medicine to rebalance the body, including herbal medicine, diet, and stress management. She may also recommend hormone therapy.
