Comprehensive Thyroid Care
Now available through Telemedicine
Have you wished that your local thyroid doctor understood diet and natural medicine? You now have a new option in your area.
Since 1996, Integrative Health has provided safe, effective, and natural solutions for people with thyroid disease. As of May 2019, we are offering our comprehensive care through telemedicine.
“Dr. Roz has been the best thing to happen to me in a long time. I was told my thyroid levels were “normal” yet I felt awful. Upon seeing my thyroid scores, Dr. Roz confirmed my levels were off and immediately put me on the path to recovery. Throughout the whole process I was listened to and never felt like I was going at this alone. My whole outlook on life has changed thanks to Dr. Roz.” –Francis G
You can get help today with:
- How to get your energy back. Reversing fatigue from thyroid disease is more than just taking the right pills.
- A proper diagnosis – do you have Hashimoto’s? Why is your thyroid not working?
- Medication management. If you are already on thyroid treatment, we would love to help it work better so that you feel your best and that your own thyroid can work more by itself.
- Finding your best diet. One size doesn’t fit all. Which foods will help heal your thyroid? Do you have food reactions? Can you recover from them?
- Help with digestion. For many, gut health is the key to reversing thyroid disease.
- Balanced hormones – every hormone in your body can affect your thyroid. We can help them work together in concert.
- Structural evaluation – do you have nodules? Are they growing? Our comprehensive care helps raise the odds that they will shrink.
Recovery from thyroid symptoms is possible now.
“Dr. Raquel is heaven sent. She has been wonderful. I have been suffering from adrenal and thyroid issues for years and my PCP has not been receptive to my concerns. I always knew there was something wrong but could not put my finger on it. Dr. Raquel put me on a simple plan of recovery, targeting my thyroid. I have never had so much energy or felt so good.” –Sarah

“I was lost on what to do with my health. I had seen dozens of doctors. I went to see Dr Ruiz with reserved skepticism. I was blown away. He has been the most knowledgeable thyroid doctor I have seen. Going forward, I will only entrust my care with Dr. Ruiz.” –Kacie E
