    Real-life case studies demonstrating how unmanaged thyroid antibodies can lead to severe health issues.

    The Study That Made Me Angry This Week: Unmasking the Dismissal of Persistent Thyroid Symptoms & Challenging Outdated Practices

    The Study That Made Me Angry This Week: Unmasking the Dismissal of Persistent Thyroid Symptoms & Challenging Outdated Practices

    When 6,058 endcrinologist from multiple european countries were polled for this study, they determined that for a MAJORITY of patients that had hypothyroid syptoms while being on T4 ONLY was ALL IN THEIR HEADS and patients have unrealsitic expectations on how they should be feeling...  
    This episode is a heartfelt exploration into the often-dismissed symptoms of hypothyroidism and the struggle to be heard and adequately treated in the medical community.
    Dr. Warren passionately argues against the study's conclusion that cognitive behavioral therapy is the primary solution for patients with persistent symptoms, advocating instead for a more holistic and informed approach to thyroid care.
    In this episode, you'll uncover:
    - Dr. Warren's personal reaction to a study that highlights the disconnect between patient experiences and medical acknowledgment of persistent hypothyroid symptoms.
    - The alarming notion that a significant number of practitioners attribute patient symptoms to psychosocial factors, despite clear indications of thyroid hormone imbalances.
    - The importance of comprehensive thyroid testing, including TSH, Free T3, and T4, to truly understand and address thyroid health, especially for those post-thyroidectomy.
    - The power of patient advocacy and the necessity of finding practitioners willing to listen and collaborate on treatment plans that include T3 when necessary.
    - The critical role of functional practitioners in guiding patients through the complexities of thyroid health, navigating the medical system, and advocating for optimal care.
    - The socioeconomic disparities in thyroid treatment access and the need for a more equitable healthcare system.

True Health

Dr. Rebecca works with you to explain, guide and teach you about real health. She gets to the underlying causes of disease and symptoms, and then creates an individualized plan to support the body’s healing. I am so thankful for Dr. Rebecca, her experience and understanding!

Life Changing ..in a good way!

My husband and I had been listening to Drs. Warren for a couple of years . We finally had enough of the conventional treatments and vein of thought from the medical community. My health journey was going south in a hurry. It’s been around two years since being under Dr. Rebecca’s care and I can honestly say I am in a much better state in my health. More importantly, I have hope that I can continue to improve. The best lesson to learn is that you really are on a journey … not a destination.
