While there may not be a test, the good news is there are multiple free and straightforward ways that you can start supporting your body and reversing cellular hypothyroidism before it becomes a bigger problem.
Foundational Principles of Health with Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Kelly Halderman
Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Kelly Halderman are thyroid experts and authors of the new book, The Thyroid Debacle. Dr. Eric and Dr. Kelly took their own past issues with thyroid functioning and have created foundational principles to help anyone improve their health and cellular longevity. By making foundational changes to the way you live your life, these principles can help improve the way you feel no matter what health issues you are facing.
Understanding the Nitty Gritty of Hypothyroidism
When your cells feel overwhelmed, they go into SOS mode and convince the other cells around them to do the same. This overwhelm leads to cellular hypothyroidism, which can slow down your metabolism, increase your perceived stress, and have a negative impact on the way your whole body is functioning.
The good news is that it is possible to reverse cellular hypothyroidism before it becomes a bigger problem. Your diet, lifestyle, emotions, sleep, breathing, and even past trauma can play a role in how your body functions. It is up to you to implement Dr. Eric and Dr. Kelly’s foundational principles so that you can start to improve your health and wellbeing in as little as 30 days.

Dr. Eric and Dr. Kelly’s powerful protocol is designed to help prevent hypothyroidism from happening to millions of more people, but can truly be used to improve the way you feel no matter what health issues you have.

“Once I realized that even me, who was leading a pretty clean life and doing a lot of the right things, I was causing my own Hashimoto’s condition. And once I started using the principles we talk about our the upcoming book, I was able to reverse my condition.” (10:09) - Dr. Eric
“Our bodies are not turning against our cells. It’s that our bodies are so well designed that by the primordial response, it is doing what it is supposed to do. So how do we honor that, and use the principles that we know and the science that we know that we are constantly digging into, how do we use that today to help you feel better?” (22:17) - Dr. Kelly
“We look at lots of these individual factors, and part of our process is we take people through what we call a Strategic Thyroid Solution, to look at each of those fitness factors and make sure they are raising their fitness levels in each of those categories.” (29:11) - Dr. Eric
“Just because it is simple, doesn’t mean it is not profoundly effective for your health.” (32:31) - Dr. Kelly
“The things that are creating your health conditions are usually associated with diet, lifestyle, mindset, and respiration breathing. So those are things you can start with. You don't necessarily need somebody to tell you to work on your sleep habits. If you are a person who stays up till 12 or 1 in the morning and then getting up at 5 or 6 in the morning, inherently we all kind of know that that is probably not good for us.” (35:24) - Dr. Eric
