read moreOur environment includes the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Most people grasp the idea that air and water pollution, chemicals added to our food supplies, and other toxins can have damaging effects on our bodies. In some situations, prescription medications can be included in toxic substances that can harm health. Our thoughts and emotions factor into our individual environment and can influence our personal health. We adapt to a changing environment and this may mean that we become stronger, more capable people as in "what doesn't kill me makes me stronger".
Self-test for Thyroid Problems
read moreLab test results for TSH, free T3 and free T4 are often "borderline" or "within the reference range" and patients are told that they cannot have a thyroid problem. Your lab tests are just one part of the diagnostic puzzle of finding out if you have a thyroid problem or are hypometabolic. Your symptoms must be considered when we're investigating the possibility of hypometabolism. The number of symptoms that you checked does not indicate the severity of your thyroid problem or hypometabolism. And, the number of symptoms you have does not relate to the length of time it will take you to get well.
read moreMy interest in science and health care was sparked early in life. I was nearly nine years old, scared and bored, wandering in a small-town hospital hallway while my mother was admitted for her radical mastectomy. The lab tech noticed me and offered to let me peek into his microscope. A new universe of life opened to me and my interest in science was captured. I wanted to find ways to help my mother and hoped to avoid the cascade of health problems that followed her cancer surgery. As our family walked through the "revolving door" of doctors' offices and hospitals to search for help for her, we found more frustrations than solutions to problems.

Dr. Honeyman is Chiropractic Physician, also known as a Doctor of Chiropractic, with many years of successfully treating patients using metabolic rehabilitation and functional medicine protocols. In 1996 she included the late John C. Lowe, MA, DC's research protocol for fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, and thyroid hormone resistance into her clinical practice. When she added functional medicine testing and treatments the success rates with metabolic rehab improved from 75% to 85%.
