I focus on the treatment of hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalances. 

My method builds on a unique thyroid promoting diet, high-quality clean vitamins, minerals, and herb supplements that support cellular energy production and tissue regeneration, as well as highly active compounds that support the body’s natural anti-aging and anti-stress hormones. 

I  also advise people on natural over the counter Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT) supplements and I often work with clients that are on prescription thyroid medication from their doctor.

Hypothyroid counseling

I do private counseling sessions with BiochemNordic members from all over the world. The sessions usually take place online via either Skype or Whats app. I can also do sessions on the phone or in-person, I speak Danish and English.

In these private sessions, there is a focus on your specific health situation. Some typical topics of the counseling sessions are:

1. Your thyroid function 

2. Your stress and inflammation level 

3. Your balance between  progesterone and estrogen 

4. How to promote your thyroid function with diet 

5. Nutritional supplements for supporting metabolism

6. How to use thyroid replacement therapy

7. How to use hormone support compound

How to treat hypothyroidism?

Stage One: Evaluation of your metabolic rate

In the first session, there is a focus on your health story and your symptoms. I evaluate your health status and metabolic rate.

Prior to the first session, you can send me the values of your pulse rate and temperature measurements, which gives a good indication of your thyroid function. You can find guidance on how to test your thyroid function using pulse and temperature here

If you have had thyroid function blood tests done, these are also taken into account and can be e-mailed prior to the first session. 

I can guide you on which blood test to have done at your doctors if these will be helpful for evaluation of your metabolic rate. 

Stage Two: Diet and supplements

In stage two I customize the best thyroid diet for your needs, including thyroid supportive vitamins, minerals and herb supplements. 

Stage 3: Thyroid replacement therapy

If further metabolic support is needed, I can guide you on how to use over the counter  Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT) supplements.

I do not prescribe medication, however, I often work with people who are on prescription thyroid medication from their doctor. In this case, I can help you manage and optimize your medication.

Stage 4: Hormonal and anti-inflammation support

Many clients have problems with high stress hormones and inflammatory symptoms. Therefore guidance is often provided on  anti-inflammatory and anti-stress components,  which are helpful in shifting the body from degeneration to repair.

Many clients have problems with estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency, in these cases information on progesterone therapy is provided.
