(NaturalNews) Hyla Cass, M.D., is scheduled to speak at The Thyroid Summit, an online event which begins June 2 and runs through June 9. Her presentation will be titled "A Holistic Psychiatrist's Approach to Thyroid Disorders."
According to her website, Cass is a nationally acclaimed innovator and expert in the fields of integrative medicine, psychiatry and addiction recovery who helps individuals take charge of their health. One area that she helps patients in is in withdrawing from both psychiatric medication and substances of abuse with the aid of natural supplements.
Cass makes regular appearances on national radio and television, including The Dr. Oz Show, E! Entertainment and The View, and in national print media. She has been quoted in many national magazines, as well as blogs for the Huffington Post, and is the author of several best-selling books, including Natural Highs, 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health, Supplement your Prescription: What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutrition and her e-book, The Addicted Brain and How to Break Free. She has created her own line of innovative nutritional supplements.

A member of the Medical Advisory Board of the Health Sciences Institute and Taste for Life Magazine, she is also Associate Editor of Total Health Magazine, she has served on the boards of California Citizens for Health and the American College for Advancement in Medicine. A native of Toronto, she graduated from the University of Toronto School of Medicine, interned at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center and completed a psychiatric residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center/UCLA. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine.
Her vision, she says, is that the concept of doctor as authority figure is rapidly being replaced with a more progressive view of doctor as health partner. As such, Cass advocates the following principles:
-- Treat the whole person -- mind, body spirit, and environment.
-- Determine the deepest root causes of symptoms, using scientific lab testing if needed.
-- Apply a continuum of treatments, always beginning with the safest and most natural as possible.
"In this way, we have the opportunity to help heal our health care system, our communities, our planet, and ultimately, ourselves," she said.

These are the subjects Schwartz will cover:
Undiagnosed thyroid disease causes anxiety, depression and emotional instability
The connection between psychiatric disorders and low thyroid function
Nutritional approaches to emotional and behavioral problems
Vitamins, minerals and thyroid function: Everything you need to know
More than half of the population is suffering from thyroid problems, according to the event website. The summit will feature some 30 presentations about common medical problems tied to thyroid disease. In them, you'll learn why the thyroid gland is the master gland in your body -- every cell depends on thyroid hormone to function optimally.
If you're not aware of a thyroid problem, you could develop psychological, cardiovascular and neurological disorders. Medications for a variety of symptoms will never solve the problem, but optimizing your thyroid hormone with vitamins, minerals, dietary changes and the right medications can.
This summit will provide you with all the information you need to optimize thyroid function and stop the suffering once and for all:
-- Learn why conventional medicine misses the diagnosis.
-- Find out which thyroid tests will properly evaluate thyroid function.
-- Educate yourself and learn how to speak with your medical professionals.
-- Access safe and effective natural remedies from over 30 world-leading authorities.
