My name is Dr. de las Casas, D.C. I have Functional Neurology training through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies. I have advanced training in natural thyroid support, functional blood and functional endocrinology chemistry analysis. I have developed several passive biofeedback approaches, over the past ten years, that have enabled me to improve my results with thyroid conditions compared to just using advanced lab testing alone. I am the owner of a private practice in Winnetka, Illinois.
According to the American thyroid association, more than 12 percent of the U.S. population will develop a thyroid condition through the course of their lifetime. Millions of Americans have some form of thyroid disease. Thyroid disease is often undiagnosed until its function becomes severely compromised.

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder in which the patient’s immune system attacks the thyroid and possibly other organs. Patients that have Hashimoto’s disease experience several of the symptoms that are listed above.
The thyroid has a direct influence on many organs, this includes the heart, which can beat rapidly and with increased intensity under the influence of thyroid hormones. Heart dysfunctions often coincide with chronic thyroid dysfunctions.
The thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), are produced by the thyroid gland and aid in regulating metabolism in the body. T3 is more biologically active than T4, and most of the T4 hormone is converted to T3 in the body’s peripheral tissues. A common thyroid disorder dysfunction is that T4 to T3 conversion is impaired in the tissues. This can create a T3 deficiency, which can disrupt the body's ability to regulate metabolism properly. This deficiency can lead to various symptoms.
