Thyroid Balance Package
Our Thyroid Balance Package is an individualized 4-month program dedicated to laying the groundwork for a healthy thyroid.
This package is put together to jump-start your thyroid towards balance. Whether you are someone who is already on a prescription medication for low thyroid levels and looking for support or guidance; or, are someone who has been told you have autoimmune thyroid antibodies present but not given any additional guidance; or, are experiencing low thyroid symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, brain fog, hair loss, anxiety, fertility challenges, and constipation - this package is meant for you. We look at your body holistically, addressing many of the root causes for thyroid levels to become imbalanced in the first place. This includes addressing inflammation, gut integrity, environmental toxicity as part of a full body and focused thyroid work up.
If you’ve ever wanted your practitioner to really listen to the reasons you are coming in for; ask you all the relevant questions; to deeply get to know you and your health as a whole; and advise you going forward on how best to heal at a root level, then you are in the right place.
The Thyroid Balance Package includes:
5 or 6 one-on-one phone sessions with Laurie Terzo, DAOM, L.Ac., FABORM and/or a Health Coach

She will then create a Report of Findings and a Personalized Wellness Plan to follow over the next 3-4 months. The Report of Findings lists areas of health that may not be in optimal range, either based on functional lab ranges or questionnaire tools. The Personalized Wellness Plan focuses on optimizing all systems of your body, but in particular the thyroid.

Email question access with Laurie for 4 months (Laurie answers email questions within 48 hours, M-F only).
Laurie usually spends about 3-5 hours of preparation time for each client enrolled in a package. This includes time spent preparing a specialized treatment plan and protocol, reviewing current research for the chief complaint, and reviewing a person’s previous treatments/health history thoroughly. With each person, she researches evidence based protocols on the issues you are coming in for and deeply thinks about your case. She looks at each person as a personal case study, where she delves into all of the details so that the issues you are looking for help with can be resolved at the root level. When the root level is addressed as opposed to just giving someone a band-aid treatment, the real healing in the body takes place and lasting results happen.
