Low thyroid and pituitary /sluggish metabolism, low basal metabolic rate, Low BMR

Updated: Mar 3

The thyroid is responsible for all metabolism and when there is low thyroid function (hypothyroid) the resulting low basal metabolic rate, BMR, makes it impossible to lose weight. I use the QRA Quantum Reflex Analysis techniques to assess thyroid and pituitary gland function and identify the correct naturopathic treatments to boost basal metabolic rate BMR so that you can lose weight easily. Naturopathic treatments for thyroid/pituitary can include minerals such as zinc or selenium, detox products to eliminate heavy metals and chemicals, iodine or kelp, anti-infective remedies and herbal medicines. The remedies for low thyroid function will be individually prescribed as each case is different.
