Fatigue? Trouble losing weight? Brain fog? It may be your thyroid.
- An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease.
- Up to 60 percent of those may be unaware of their condition.
- The number of undiagnosed hypothyroid patients could easily double, triple or even quadruple that statistic.
- In addition to undiagnosed thyroid sufferers who have never been tested, we add to that those who have been tested, only to be told their thyroid function tests were “normal.” These are the people who conventional medicine is failing. The numbers of these people alone constitute an epidemic.
The right diagnosis is essential. Many people never receive accurate or thorough testing, or their results are being compared to outdated reference ranges. Our superior thyroid testing methods have changed people’s lives; it can change yours too.

Dr. Raphael Kellman is recognized as a leader in the field of thyroid disease, both in his expertise in treatment and also in his ability as a thyroid doctor in NYC, through more expansive testing, to diagnose hypothyroidism frequently missed by routine tests. He is internationally known for his expertise in what has been proven to be the most accurate thyroid test, the TRH Stimulation Test.
DO YOU HAVE TWO OR MORE OF THESE SYMPTOMS?
- Weight Gain
- Poor Memory
- Brain Fog
- Poor Concentration
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Irregular Periods
- Hair Loss
- Cold Intolerance
- Tingling and Numbness
- Joint and Muscle Pain
- Unexplained Symptoms (which might include aches, pains, feeling “old” or “off,” sluggish metabolism, skin problems)
If you are feeling any of these symptoms, or if you’ve been to other doctors who have tested your thyroid and the result was “normal,” you still may have a low thyroid. Based on Dr. Kellman’s groundbreaking TRH Stimulation Test, thousands of people have been diagnosed with low thyroid even though their previous tests were normal. Only the TRH Stimulation Test detects low thyroid missed by routine tests.
Millions of people in the United States have thyroid disease, both autoimmune (in which the body’s own immune system attacks the thyroid) and non-autoimmune. Different iterations of thyroid disease include Hashimoto’s disease (autoimmune hypothyroidism), Graves’ disease (autoimmune hyperthyroidism), and non-autoimmune thyroid imbalances. In addition, pregnancy and menopause can also affect thyroid function.
While most doctors say that Hashimoto’s is the main cause of low thyroid, Dr. Kellman argues that it’s actually endocrine disruptors that cause low thyroid, making him a leading thyroid doctor in NYC.
The first step in treating Hashimoto’s is to understand that endocrine disruptors are everywhere:
- Personal hygiene products
- PPI’s and other medications
- Birth Control Pills
- Processed foods
…and the list goes on and on.
These disruptors cause inflammation which can produce antibodies to attack its own tissue, including the thyroid, which can lead to Hashimoto’s. The first step is to eliminate as many endocrine disruptors as possible. Then Dr. Kellman creates treatment plans to repair and restore the microbiome which has been damaged.
Dr. Kellman is the founder of “Microbiome Medicine” and is known worldwide as the expert in treating the microbiome using advanced treatment protocols, including individualized targeted probiotics and prebiotics, potent IV therapy, and natural compounds to modulate and balance the immune system.
NTIS, or Non-Thyroidal Illness Syndrome, affects many people with low thyroid as well. Symptoms such as unexplained fatigue, brain fog, memory decline, decreased executive function, even dementia, can all be traced to NTIS. The Kellman Wellness Center in New York has changed the lives of thousands of patients using this treatment protocol and this superior testing method.
