Shirley Finds Relief Through Functional Medicine

“In 2011 I was diagnosed with what I was told was Grave’s Disease or hyperthyroid. I was having problems with erratic heart palpitations and swelling in my ankles and knees. My doctor referred me to an Endocrinologist who recommended a Radioactive Iodine procedure to destroy my thyroid. I decided that I didn’t want to do this. At this time Dr. Tony recommended doing additional testing. This is how I found out that many of my thyroid tests were way off and it was identified that I had gluten sensitivity.

I went off of gluten, started a liver detox, a new diet regimen and a course of anti-inflammation supplements. After several months we reran the tests and many of the thyroid antibody markers decreased dramatically. My erratic heart rate and swelling all improved. After over 5 years my thyroid markers are all better and I am not on any medication at all. Thyroid disease runs in my family and I am happy to have beaten it more naturally.

I would recommend Dr. Tony to anyone that is struggling with a condition like this. I had to make a lot of changes in my life but it has all been worth it.” SA- Traverse City
