thyroid-problemsThyroid imbalance can result in diverse and lingering heath and even psychological problems, but may often go undiagnosed. When properly identified, however, it is usually easy to treat.

shamesRichardKarileeRichard and Karilee ShamesThyroid imbalance is accurate diagnosed far too infrequently, contends Dr. Richard Shames, founder and lead practitioner at the Shames Family Services holistic clinic in San Rafael.

For people who are concerned about possible thyroid imbalance, the Shames' clinic now offers access to online-based self-testing, through their "Canary Club."
