“I recommend Dr. Trites to everyone!
He successfully diagnosed my thyroid issues and put me on the track to correcting the issue. Within months my thyroid is working as it should and did I not have to take prescriptions, supplements, or medications!

The Functional Medicine approach gets you on the road to healing faster.
Most doctors only ask if your thyroid is high or low. This is a problem because the thyroid is not that simple.
In Functional Medicine, we understand that there are many elements that must work well in order for you to have good thyroid health.
Dr. Trites’ eight-step process identifies the root cause of your thyroid issues. This is the only way to have true thyroid health— often without a prescription!
The clinical definition of hyperthyroidism, many times referred to as hyperthyroid, is the over activity of the thyroid gland resulting in a rapid heartbeat and an increased rate of metabolism.
The clinical definition of hypothyroidism, many times referred to as hypothyroid, is the abnormally low activity of the thyroid gland resulting in retardation of grown and mental development in both children and adults.
In both situations the thyroid gland, a dual-lobed gland located in the front of the neck, is not producing the optimal amount of hormones to meet the needs of your body. Thyroid hormones regulate the way our bodies use energy.

Is your brain talking to your thyroid to tell it to make the appropriate amount of thyroid hormone?

Is your thyroid able to make the T4 hormone?

Once the inactive T4 is made, can your body covert it into the active T3 hormone?

Is the hormone being delivered well to the cells to do its work?

Do you have the proper nutrition required for a healthy thyroid, like selenium, manganese, zinc, iodine, iron, Vitamin A, or the amino acid tyrosine?

Is fluoride and chlorine exposure impairing your thyroid hormone production?

How is your gut and liver health? This affects how much active thyroid hormone your body produces.

Are other factors, like chronic stress, hormonal imbalances, sugar problems like insulin resistance or hypoglycemia affecting your thyroid function?
