ThyroFlex - non-invasive and accurate thyroid testing

I am a Lucy Rose practitioner, and specialise in thyroid health.

Blood tests alone can only measure how much thyroid hormone you have in the blood - they don't measure how well your hormones are actually working. The ThyroFlex does.

What is involved

The ThyroFlex is a stand alone tool, however, to get a broad picture of your body, we combine this with the following tests;

Referral for the following blood tests;

  • TSH
  • T4
  • T3
  • FT3
  • Thyroid anti-bodies
  • Iodine loading test
Other tests may be requested depending on your personal history and presentation.

The ThyroFlex test itself only takes minutes and is quick and relatively painless.  Thyroflex is a non-invasive test, which measures brachioradialis reflexometry and resting metabolic rate.

* Thyroflex identifies if your thyroid function is under or overactive, or within optimal range.

* Thyroflex helps to ensure you are on appropriate thyroid hormone replacement dosage with 98.5% accuracy.

* Thyroflex will show if your current regime for treatment of hypothyroid is adequate.

* Thyroflex predicts resting metabolic rate (which tells you how many calories you are burning per day).

* Finding the thyroid dose that is right for you greatly lowers your health risk and helps to regulate your hormones, neurotransmitters and immune functions.

    This is why having a health detective is really important. 

    You could have all the signs and symptoms of thyroid insufficiency, but there can be something else happening in your body. 

    People with digestive problems or other chronic conditions have a high amount of inflammation throughout their body. This inflammation interferes with the conversion of T4 to T3, sufficiently making the thyroid hormones unavailable to the cells throughout the body.

    Another factor is nutrient deficiency, in particular selenium and iodine. Without enough of these nutrients, the body can't activate thyroid hormones either.

    In these types of cases, we need to address the functional aspects of WHY the thyroid isn't working optimally, and correct the root cause.

    The thyroid - a master gland for every metabolic function in the body
