  Title Hypothyroidism: A new model for conservative management in two cases
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2004 Mar;34(1):11-18
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: To review the function, anatomy, physiology, development, hormone synthesis and dysfunction of the thyroid gland. Treatment options are discussed, and 2 case studies of a mind-body therapy (Neuro-Emotional Technique—NET) successfully managing hypothyroid dysfunction are presented.

Data Sources: MEDLINE search using key words: thyroid, synthesis, development, anatomy, physiology, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.

Data Selection: Eighty-five papers fit the key words and were selected based on relevance to the topic. Papers were selected that contained relevant information on normal and abnormal thyroid function and its management.

Data Extraction: Selected papers had to contain information that directly related to the diagnosis, anatomy, physiology and management of hypothyroid conditions. Papers were also selected that described a possible neurophysiological mechanism for the observed treatment effects.

Data Synthesis: Objective measures of a new mind-body approach to hypothyroid dysfunction are presented, and its relevance to the biopsychosocial model is discussed. This new treatment is compared to the existing biomedical approaches to treatment.

Conclusions: Thyroid dysfunction has been effectively treated with medicine for many years. This paper presents a new therapy that produced objective pre-post changes to hypothyroid dysfunction in 2 cases. This therapy may have potential in future circumstances, with further research recommended to confirm its reliability/validity.
