Yvonne Justine Kreger, ND, LLC
Naturopathic Endocrinology with a focus on Thyroid and Pre-Diabetes
Hello and Welcome!
As a busy mom, exerciser, and entrepreneur, I know how difficult it can be to take care of yourself and I am here to help!
I am a Naturopathic Thyroid Specialist and I am here to support those of you who have been diagnosed with a thyroid condition but are not happy with your current treatment strategy by:
- spending time to get to know & understand your current physical, emotional and mental health and all of you, not just your condition
- evaluating labs with the goal of optimal health now and in the future, not just walking the line of "fine"
- working to figure out the root cause or causes of your thyroid disorder
- treating the cause, not just the symptoms
- creating an expertly crafted, individualized treatment plan for you that includes compounded medications, nutritional supplements, food plans and lifestyle recommendations
I incorporate the use of professional grade vitamins, herbal medicine, compounded medications, flower essences, essential oils and homeopathy to help relieve the imbalances that often manifest as chronic thyroid disease. I also work with my patients to establish a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating, exercise, and avoidance of toxic exposures in their everyday lives. If you would like to reclaim the vitality that you've lost over the years, this is the place to start! Click here to read more about my practice and areas of expertise.
If you have been to your PCP and they say your labs are "normal", but you still feel awful, this is because conventional lab testing done is just not enough! After 20+ years of practice, I have noticed that most thyroid patients who come to see me, despite having been to many doctors, are still undertreated, underevaluated and underestimated! Often, providers only run a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and when its not outside the lab range, they stop investigating further. This standard practice often misses other valuable markers that show you have low thyroid function! In my practice I typically look at not only a TSH, but also Free T3, Free T4, Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies and Anti-thyroglobulin Antibodies, as well as other markers that are often effected by low thyroid. Once I have determined where the dysfunction is, we work to figure out the trigger, which can be infections, environmental toxins, food, heavy metals, your genetics and/or nutrient deficiencies, and I help create strategies to address these now and in the future, so that you can feel and look your best!
I am here to help you be your most amazing, strong and energetic self! I look forward to working with you soon! Click here to schedule a free discovery call to learn how I can help!
