Dear reader,

Do you or any of you or your family friends (including children) suffer from:

  • tiredness
  • being sensitive to cold
  • weight gain
  • constipation
  • depression
  • slow movements and thoughts
  • muscle aches and weakness
  • muscle cramps
  • dry and scaly skin
  • brittle hair and nails
  • loss of libido
  • pain,numbness, and tingling sensation in the hand and fingers
  • irregular periods or heavy periods

Elderly people with an underactive thyroid may develop memory problems and depression. Children may experience slower growth and development. Teenagers may start puberty earlier than normal.

Later symptoms of an underachieve thyroid may include:

  • a low pitched and hoarse voice
  • puffy face
  • thinning eyebrows
  • a slow heart rate
  • hearing loss
  • anaemia

And if you have any of these symptoms:

  • palpitations
  • insomnia
  • shakiness
  • increased sweating
  • brittle nails
  • loss of appetite

Your thyroid might be overactive. Sometimes one has both.

These are all symptoms of thyroid problems, they might easily be misdiagnosed and confused with other conditions as the symptom picture can be very similar.

Thyroid related illnesses is the “new” epidemic we are facing. The incidence of thyroid cancer is increasing more rapidly than that of any other cancer in the United States.

A normal blood test is not a good measurement for the functioning of the thyroid and core hormones. It has an accuracy of only about 18 % according to new research.

The good news is that there are other ways to check the thyroid and the core hormone functions, and it’s a non-invasive method, based on using the reflexes.  The test can easily be performed on children down to the age of 7.

Thyroid Function Testing in Dubai: Thyroflex is a non invasive thyroid test which measures your brachioradialis reflexometry (BR reflex) and resting metabolic rate, providing results in 5 minutes. The Thyroflex test identifies if your thyroid function is under or overactive, or within optimal range.If you are already taking thyroid medication the thyroflex helps to ensure you are on the appropriate thyroid hormone replacement dosage with 98.5% accuracy

What role does the thyroid have in the body? 

The thyroid plays a key role in your body. Thyroid hormones regulate just about every cell in the body, including those in the central nervous system, heart, liver, kidneys, skin, bone and muscles. Among its most important functions is the control of the rate of metabolism, this will greatly effect your weight.

Currently, the medical community orders millions of dollars worth of thyroid tests every year, unfortunately these tests can be inaccurate and as a result people with sub clinical hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) remain untreated or under treated.

Current thyroid tests used:

Thyroid blood testing: Blood testing of the thyroid hormones shows how much hormone we have, not whether they are working. You may have good levels of thyroid hormones but they may not be working well.

Body basal temperature: Requires taking your temperature first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. Temperature must be taken at the same time everyday to provide accurate results. The results can be ambiguous.

Thyroflex Test: the thyroflex Test is 98.5% accurate in diagnosing any thyroid problems and is FDA certified.

I use the Thyroflex also in order to ensure that my patients gets diagnosed and treated as early and correctly as possible before more serious issues develops.

If they already have more serious diagnosis I can more easily follow it up ensure appropriate homeopathic and holistic treatment is applied to each individual case.

In addition to the testing :

Proper diets will be evaluated and adviced, the thyroid and the core hormones will be treated all with natural supplements for bodily support and I will assess and make sure that the ONE correct homeopathic remedy at the time is prescribed correctly.

The result?  you will feel the positive changes and improvement almost instantly, your symptoms will disappear and you will heal on all levels of being.

Be well.

Homeopathy is an alternative branch of science in which dilute amounts of certain natural substances are used to treat a variety of ailments.

It can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Homeopathy medicines have been developed based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – which means that a substance taken in small amounts will treat the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts.

The substances used in homeopathy cause the body to heal itself.

Homeopathic medicines are generally safe and adverse side effects are very rare. (Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

The Pathways/Methods Sofie Skogen Uses

Each pathway/method as used in homeopathy acts as a key to the door of possibility of taking the patient to the next level of healing & recovery.
