Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, is a disorder resulting from a deficiency in thyroid hormone which is a crucial hormone that effects energy levels and cellular metabolism.
As we age, both men and women experience a significant decline in the levels of certain hormones in their bodies. Women typically experience this at menopause with an initial loss of estrogen and progesterone and an eventual reduction in testosterone as well. Men may also experience deficiencies in testosterone which can create life altering symptoms and increase their risk for metabolic diseases such as diabetes and erectile dysfunction. At Customized Relief, we have specialized options to treat these deficiencies that include both hormonal and non-hormonal replacement therapies.
Here at Customized Relief, we understand that sometimes it can be hard to stay in front of health conditions simply with diet, exercise, and oral supplementation. Also, if health conditions occur abruptly, we often need a “Quick Boost” to charge our system. IV therapy could be just the answer for both of these problems, and we have a wide array of options to offer.
Blood sugar control is a major issue in America today. It is estimated that over 50% of the U.S. population over the age of 65 has either pre-diabetes or diabetes. This is due to the tremendously high level of simple sugars, processed foods, and a lack of regular exercise in this country.
At Customized Relief, we believe in early management of blood sugar levels.

Heart and blood vessel disease is caused by a buildup of plaque in the blood vessel walls and is referred to as atherosclerosis (or clogged arteries). This plaque can narrow blood vessels and inhibit oxygen delivery to tissues. If this buildup becomes inflamed, then plaque contents can leak into the bloodstream and create clots.
These clots can then plug up small or larger arteries such as the coronary arteries of the heart or carotid arteries that lead to the brain. The end result is cell death as no oxygen can get to the cells downstream from that clot.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme and debilitating fatigue that lasts for at least six months and can’t be fully explained by an underlying medical condition. It worsens with physical or mental activity—even tasks like grocery shopping or simply studying for an exam can be exhausting—and the fatigue isn’t improved with rest. This condition is often associated with a mold exposure.
The gut (gastrointestinal tract) is home to over 100 trillion bacteria as well as yeast and some viruses. These bacteria outnumber our human cells in total number by 2 1⁄2 times (humans have roughly 35 to 37 trillion cells in their whole body). It is also where 70% of your entire immune system resides. Proper gastrointestinal tract function is vital for health. Abnormal gut bacteria and/or yeast overgrowth is a major source of inflammation in the body. This inflammation if left untreated can lead to symptoms of fatigue, but it can also lead to a host of medical conditions that can be more serious and at times deadly.
Mold is a fungus that grows in places where there is chronic moisture. Unfortunately, we have small exposures to mold in every home, school, church or office building. Most physicians do not realize the impact of mold on the health of their patients. Patients are often tested for mold allergies, but it is the toxins released by mold that are the most disruptive to our health. This can lead to a multitude of symptoms and can even cause significant health conditions such as kidney disease, mood disorders, unexplained weight gain, reactivation of old viruses (like Epstein-Barr and shingles), dementia, and even cancer.
Urinary and bowel incontinence (leakage) occurs primarily in women as they age and is often associated with delivery of babies which can lead to damage to the nerves and muscles of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor musculature is the primary inhibitor of these forms of urinary and bowel leakage. These muscles can “tear” at the time of delivery or the nerves that control the muscles can be damaged by over-stretching which then leads to weakness in pelvic muscle contraction.
