Because the thyroid gland is highly nutrient dependent, poor nutritional status is one of the root causes of thyroid dysfunction.

How nutrition plays a role

Some nutrients (iodine and tyrosine) provide the building blocks of thyroid hormones.

Minerals (selenium, iron, and zinc) help convert T4 (inactive thyroid hormone) to T3 (active thyroid hormone).

Selenium can also help reduce thyroid peroxidase (TPO) antibodies, which when elevated, cause damage to the thyroid

Zinc is needed to help your body gauge thyroid hormone levels and tells it to increase production with levels are low.

Nutrient-dense, plant-based foods provide nutrients that support the body’s ability to detoxify harmful substances (e.g. endocrine disruptors like BPA, pesticides, and heavy metals).

Omega 3 fats provide cellular membrane integrity which protects them from becoming damaged and enables your cells to communicate well with each other.

Why should I do a nutritionist consultation?

If you suffer from hypothyroidism, diet can have a huge impact on your symptoms. Changing your diet for a thyroid friendly diet can help you keep your symptoms under control.

Many patients also use our nutritionist consultations as they are trying to lose weight. One of the main symptoms of hypothyroidism is weight gain and you can combine a thyroid friendly diet with a meal plan tailored to lose weight.


Who are your nutritionists?

All our nutritionists are certified nutritionists with years of experience treating hypothyroidism patients.


Will my nutritionist call me at the time of the appointment?

We think that video calls are way more efficient than phone calls. A few minutes before your scheduled appointment, we'll send you a link by email. You will just have to follow this link and you'll be chatting with your nutritionist in no time.


What happens if the consultation lasts more than 30 minutes?

Our nutritionists are always happy to spend more than 30 minutes if they can. If there is another consultation after yours, your nutritionist will have to stick to the 30 minutes initially scheduled.


Do you treat Hashimoto's disease?

100% yes! This is the area where functional medicine truly thrives.


I made my appointment, now what can I expect?

Our office space is not your typical medical office. We are fully online and digital to bring more convenience to our patients.

Once your appointment is booked, we will ask you to fill out an intake questionnaire that will be used by our nutritionists to get all the information they need. We'll also invite you to upload your lab results.
