The National Thyroid Institute, a non-profit organization, was started to help people who suffer with thyroid dysfunction find the hope and support needed for this disorder. Dr. Michael L. Johnson and the other doctors at the institute use treatment modalities known as The Johnson Method to treat thyroid dysfunction. The number of patients helped with The Johnson Method at the National Thyroid Institute is astounding.
The Johnson Method is an all natural, drug-free treatment that has been used successfully on patients who previously had not seen these kinds of results with conventional treatment. Dr. Johnson and his treatment team feel that thyroid dysfunction is grossly misunderstood in conventional medicine.
Every patient is first tested for sensitivity to the different food groups. This is done because sensitivity to any food group will increase inflammation in the brain and other parts of the body. Then, other laboratory tests are done to check your adrenal glands, your liver and your glucose level. Hormone panels are checked, too. Brain function is very important to the health of the thyroid gland, so brain neurotransmitters are checked because a decrease in neurotransmitters can cause increased pain and fatigue.
The National Thyroid Institute will leave no stone unturned to determine the exact cause of your thyroid condition.
