- About Dr. Li
It is estimated that around 10 million Americans suffer from hypothyroidism. With hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland, which is located at the front of the neck, is underactive, not producing enough of the hormone known as thyroxine. This causes the body’s metabolism to slow down, leading to a whole range of symptoms, such as fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, depression, memory loss, decreased libido, and many others.
MerryHerb’s Hypo-ThyD Support herbal formula is a gentle, all-natural solution. This comprehensive herbal formula contains 12 different Chinese herbs which work together to improve the function of the thyroid gland, without any unwanted side effects. The result will be a gradual improvement in your symptoms within approximately 2 months. This herbal supplement can be taken even if you are currently taking a prescription thyroid medication. It may be possible to eventually discontinue your prescription medication. With this in mind, it is absolutely necessary for you to monitor your thyroid condition under your doctor’s supervision.
