Naturopathic Medicine Q & A

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a branch of health care that uses therapeutic therapies and substances that help the body to heal on its own. The team at Symmetria Integrative Medical treats patients with a variety of naturopathic methods, including:

  • Trigger point injections
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture 
  • Chiropractic care

How can you treat thyroid problems with naturopathic medicine?

You can treat thyroid issues using a number of naturopathic solutions, including:

Nutritional therapy

One of the major causes of thyroid dysfunction is chronic gut inflammation and microbiome imbalance. To help you fix this, the Symmetria Integrative Medical team offers dietary counseling and supplements. 

Changes that can balance your gut and decrease inflammation include eliminating or reducing your intake of foods containing:

  • Starch
  • Sugar
  • Carbohydrates 

You can also achieve better gut health by adding probiotics and cultured foods to your diet.

Allergy testing

If you need help controlling the symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease, the Symmetria Integrative Medical team can provide you with food allergy testing. 

If you have food allergies, they can trigger the autoimmune response of your disease. By identifying them, you can avoid them and avoid flare-ups.  

Supplementation

You can also reduce thyroid disease symptoms by taking supplements like vitamin B12, zinc, and selenium.

What is trigger point injection therapy?

Trigger point injection therapy is a therapy that treats painful knots in your muscles, where the muscles can’t relax. To relieve pain, the Symmetria Integrative Medical team injects a small amount of a steroid and anesthetic mixture into the knot, or “trigger point.”

Trigger point injection is a very quick procedure. It’s typically over after just a few minutes. After treatment, you can go back to your regular activities, though you should avoid strenuous use of the muscle for a few days. 

Trigger point injection therapy works for muscle pain from conditions like:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial pain
  • Tension headaches

You can use it to treat muscles all over the body, especially the neck, arms, legs, and lower back.
