When your thyroid condition isn’t responding to standard pharmacology, you may benefit from compounded medications. Contact a qualified compounding pharmacy for more information.
Thyroid conditions often have a dramatic impact on your life. Unfortunately, traditional medications will not work for everybody. This means people like you have to seek out alternative options. One treatment that could make a world of a difference is the use of low dose naltrexone.
The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy offers custom made medications for your individual needs. Thyroid compounding could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Read on to learn more about the types of thyroid conditions that could benefit from compounded drugs and how low dose naltrexone might help.
Thyroid Problems and Treatment
The thyroid is a hormone gland responsible for several bodily functions, including metabolic function, and the growth and development of the human body. When the thyroid malfunctions, it can cause serious problems throughout the body. Some of the most common kinds of thyroid conditions include:
- Thyroid cancer
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Grave’s disease
- Thyroid nodules
There are a couple ways thyroid conditions are treated, beyond the standard medications prescribed for each individual condition. One of these treatment options is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This helps to rebalance the hormone levels that have been disrupted by the over- or under-production of specific thyroid hormones.
The other type of treatment you may want to look into is the use of low dose naltrexone.
Low Dose Naltrexone for Thyroid Conditions
Naltrexone is a drug that is commonly used to treat withdrawal and help people suffering from substance abuse get and stay sober. In recent years, using naltrexone in low doses (LDN) has been shown to help a substantial amount of medical conditions, some of which include:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Certain types of cancers
- Autoimmune diseases
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Kawasaki’s disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
Low dose naltrexone has proven effective in helping to treat many thyroid conditions as well. When taken in low doses, the naltrexone binds to the opioid receptors in the brain, increasing the production of endorphins in the body. This is the hormone that makes you feel good. Not only will your mood improve, but this overproduction of endorphins has been shown to reduce inflammation and even put a stop to the body’s production of unwanted or dangerous cells.
If you haven’t discussed LDN with your doctor, consider making an appointment. If your physician determines you are a good candidate for low dose naltrexone, you can come to The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy to obtain your custom-made LDN prescription.
