Homeopathy is a system of medicine that uses natural substances to stimulate the body’s own immune system to heal disease. It is based on the principle of “like cures like”: the same substance that causes illness cures it, by varying the dose of the substance. Dr. Saltzman practices homeopathy in Westchester and Rockland counties. more info
Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

Meet Dr. Susanne Saltzman, M.D.
As a physician specializing in homeopathic and functional medicine, I have treated thousands of women (and many men) for the past 25 years with thyroid disorders, especially hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid). (I have treated many cases of hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid as well which I will talk about in a future article). It is my experience that almost any symptom can be a result of a sluggish thyroid however the most common complaints are fatigue, weight gain, constipation, hair loss, cold intolerance, dry skin, dry, brittle hair, memory problems, depression and infertility.
