HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2013) - Dr. Steven Hotze, founder of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, (www.hotzehwc.com), is offering a free webinar at noon CDT March 26 explaining hypothyroidism, an often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed condition that causes fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, and cold hands and feet, among other symptoms.

"Unfortunately, people suffering symptoms of hypothyroidism are often told three pieces of information by their doctor that is not helping them: that whatever is bothering them is not abnormal, that their blood work is normal and that a pharmaceutical drug will help them," says Hotze, author of "Hormones, Health and Happiness."
"Ninety-five percent of people tested for hypothyroidism fall within a range considered normal. Also, remember, you can send the same blood to two different labs and get two different results."
Hypothyroidism is an overlooked condition, especially among women, that throws off hormones levels, Hotze says. Biologically identical hormone replacement therapy, along with other natural remedies, can give people back their lives, he says.
"People should avoid artificial hormones, which are those that do not match the body's precise needs," he says.
And pharmaceutical drugs prescribed to ease symptoms may mask the problem but, since they don't correct the underlying cause, the patient may still not feel "100 percent," he says.
One of Hotze's patients, Amy Owens, was only 30 years old when she began to have problems associated with hormonal imbalance.
"It was very frustrating; my previous doctors didn't even consider that, perhaps, my thyroid was experiencing problems," says Owens, who had recently graduated from law school. Her doctor blamed inactivity for her symptoms. "After Dr. Hotze's treatment, my life has changed completely. I've done a 180; I'm healthy, happy, I go out, I'm dating and I have energy."
