Nicole German,
Thyroid dietitian

Nicole is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist specializing in weight management, food sensitivities, thyroid conditions, and autoimmune conditions. Nicole completed her education at the University of Georgia where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics.

A few years ago, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. This propelled her to learn more about the thyroid condition and how she could naturally improve her health. Nicole learned from the healthcare professionals she worked with at the time, and began her own continuing education.

In addition, Nicole became a Certified LEAP Therapist which qualifies her to work with LEAP MRT patients and perform the MRT (Mediator Release Test) and use LEAP immunocalm diet therapy. This means Nicole can use the gold standard testing in food sensitivities to test patients for the foods that are causing further inflammation. This is currently an integral part of Nicole’s thyroid nutrition protocol for patients with Hashimoto’s. She has found the best approach is to reduce inflammation through diet, and to improve nutrient status.

Dr. Matthew Roberson

Texas, Maryland, Tennessee
Rating: 5- 6 reviews

Background

While I have been a practicing physician since 2003, I made the change to telemedicine full time in 2020. I believe it is the future of patient care.‍After many experiences with patients who did not receive quality thyroid care due to single lab numbers, I attended a conference in 2012 that altered the way I view thyroid care. I look at the whole patient by assessing symptoms as well as reviewing labs to offer the best treatment and care for the individual. I find that supporting thyroid concerns can make a noticeable and positive change in people’s lives.‍

Background

When it comes to caring for people with hypothyroidism, Dr. Zager has found it helpful to draw from both conventional and evidence-based alternative methods of diagnosis and treatment. Hypothyroid care is certainly not a ""one-size-fits-all"" operation. Effective approaches come from an understanding of each person's narrative, with reference to lifestyle and individual goals. Dr. Zager also often thinks of thyroid management in relation to adrenal, immune and gastrointestinal health.
