Why We Use Thyroflex testing ?
It is estimated by the leading thyroid experts, Broda-Barnes & thierrey Hertoghe, that 80% of the population, has a thyroid disorder.
Dr. R.I.S. Bayliss a famous Endocrinologist, in his speech at the Medical Society’s Transactions; after many decades of treating thyroid conditions he was asked again how he could tell when a patient had adequate thyroid replacement. “I am often asked how the correct dose of thyroxine is determined. The answer is clinically by the patient’s pulse rate, his sense of wellbeing, the texture of his skin, his tolerance of cold, his bowel function, (Symptoms) and the speed with which his deep tendon reflexes relax.” Anyone can be brought up to the top of their constitutional capabilities when tested adequately for thyroid hormone. This would only be done by clinical assessment; there is no relation between the signs and symptoms of low thyroid disease, the TSH, or the other related blood tests.” Dr. David Derry
Only 18% of the thyroid hormones can be found in the blood, while 75% can be found in the muscles, skin & brain. So the chances of detecting Thyroid disorders in just the blood are low, as it is not comprehensive enough. However we offer the Thyroflex tests that shows a 98.5% chance of getting this diagnosis correct. This result is from FDA Testing and approval.

Hundreds of thousands of people globally, particularly women, suffer with thyroid-related diseases (including debilitating hormone imbalance and autoimmune diseases). Most of them never receive proper treatment. The lucky ones have had their quality of life completely turned around through the comprehensive medical treatment offered by practitioners of the Thyroflex “Core Hormone” Program.
"The non-invasive Thyroflex technology test represents the best that modern medicine has to offer while at the same time bringing back the original truths of clinical practice." Dr. Jeffery Dach M.D. (Radiologist Hollywood FL)
Where is the thyroid ?
The thyroid gland is a small organ that’s located in the front of the neck, wrapped around the windpipe It’s shaped like a butterfly, smaller in the middle with two wide wings that extend around the side of your throat. You have glands throughout your body, where they create and release substances that help your body do a specific thing. Your thyroid makes hormones that help balance your metabolism.
If your body makes too much thyroid hormone, you can develop a condition called hyperthyroidism. If your body makes too little thyroid hormone, it’s called hypothyroidism.
Who is affected by thyroid disease?
Thyroid disease can affect anyone men, women, infants, teenagers and the elderly. It can be present at birth (typically hypothyroidism) and it can develop as you age (often after menopause in women).
Thyroid disease is very common, and some specialist in the world estimated that 80 % of the population has some Thyroid Issue.
You may be at a higher risk of developing a thyroid disease if you:
- Have a family history of thyroid disease.
- Have a medical condition (these can include pernicious anaemia, type 1 diabetes, primary adrenal insufficiency, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
- Are older than 60, especially in women.
- Have had treatment for a past thyroid condition or cancer (thyroidectomy or radiation).
Cascade of Autoimmune Responses
If you do not, get your Thyroid treated, you have a greatly increased chance of developing an autoimmune disease like Hashimoto’s (under active) or Graves (over active) and going down the long slippery slope into other autoimmune disorders, that will make your life miserable, such as digestive problems, arthritis, in fact over 80- autoimmune disorders that compound one on the other.
Clinical trials were carried out on 2,200 people over 3 years and we discovered that not only is the reflex response time critical, but also the neurotransmitter time, when combined with the reflex time, gives you a picture of the Thyroid that is 98.5% accurate, therefore no guessing!
What is a reflex number ?
All doctors learn in medical school that the reflexes speed up and slow down with thyroid function. In the 1800’s and 1900’s most doctors used the “woltman” effect and tested your reflexes with a reflex hammer, evaluated the symptoms and treated your thyroid. With the Thyroflex, Dr. Turner simply took this old fashioned technique, up into the 21st century by using a computer to very accurately measure the reflex of a muscle in micro millisecond.
Where can I get a Thyroflex test ?
We offer Thyroflex test here at The Alchemy Room.
This is how it works in 4 steps, it is bit of a process, yet as you will see we are working as a team, of qualified medical Doctors with over 25 years of experience. The end result is you have access to some of the highest standard experts in the world in this field, and this is why we are getting results.
Step 1. Is to complete symptom questionnaire, this takes about 10 minutes, if you click here you can download the form Symptom Survey V15.08.24.20
Step2. We also need a blood test, and you might say why do I need the Thyroflex test as well, this is because the blood test may show your hormones are in the normal range, and we get this so many times, that the symptom survey clearly shows a issue and Thyroflex clearly shows an issue, and the blood is normal. The reason we need to see the blood report as well, is to see if their are any thyroid antibodies, showing a sign of an auto immune issue. To get the blood test please go to https://thriva.co/ and get a full thyroid function test if you enter this code you get £10 discount XA3KRT_MZO0
Step3. We will then do the Thyroflex muscle reflex test this cost £65 this also includes the consultation.
Step3. The next step is to book a consultation on line with a fully qualified medical doctor who specialize in hormone health, who reads the Thyroflex test and symptom questionnaire. If you click here this will take you to the booking page
The consultation costs $54 and is 15 minutes, from this the Doctor will write a prescription, combining the best of natural medicine, with main steam medicine if necessary and the prescription will be sent to you.
When you complete the booking form, you need to attach , a brief medical history , a recent blood test, the Thyroflex test result, and the symptom questionnaire.
From all of this in depth information, the Doctors are getting results, which may be often overlooked or misdiagnosed.
Step 4. 30 or 60 days later after you have been on the protocol from the Doctor , we re test your Thyroflex test at The Alchemy Room to see if the reflex time has come down and that symptoms are improving. In most cases within 14 days we see a considerable improvement. The retest cost £55 which includes the consultation.
Each person health condition is different, with a chronic auto immune disease, although we often see substantial progress within the first 14 days, it can take up to 1 to 2 years to clear all the underlying factors that are aggravating the condition, yet the end goal is so worth it. Dealing correctly with Hormone imbalance is often not a quick fix, rather it is a long term steady course.
Our Conclusion !
We have been in the natural health field for over 20 years now, and yes we have a basic understanding about hormones. Yet having this training with Dr. Turner and his team , has clearly opened our eyes, or taken the mask off, something we did not clearly see.
You can ask any happy person, who also knows about the human body , why are you happy and they will probably say as a big part of their answer that their hormones are balanced. And when you realize , that if your hormones are imbalanced the impact on your mental and physical health is huge, and precursor effect on a autoimmune disease is apparent.
In today's world hormone imbalances are increasing , and possible cause could be nutrient deficient food, decrease in iodine , more toxicity and more stress.
With Dr. Turner reflex testing we can see within 20 minutes clear results where the clients thyroid hormones levels are, and by teaming up with the Doctors in America we can give a clear simple treatment plan that we can re-test in a months time to see if it is working, and because they have over 25 years of experience doing this same testing and following up thousands of patients, they know they have something that works.
We believe this is a huge corner stone to overall health and wellbeing.
This is why we are behind this.
