Best Thyroid Health Clinic 2019 - UK
You have NO ENERGY and NO FUN, are fed up being TIRED, just can't get the WEIGHT down. You feel that your THYROID IS NOT RIGHT, but the NHS won't help.
We are in turbulent times ...
Lockdowns, travel restrictions, job uncertainties, tight budgets, no specialist appointments ...
We deal with nearly everything related to THYROID health, help taking the right tests, make the right diagnosis, create a BESPOKE treatment plan, and use - if needed - medication that works for you, including NDT and T3.
What WE do is different ... we investigate and address the REASONS why you have your symptoms and aim to solve the CAUSES of the problems, not just "covering up" your symptoms.
We use a holistic approach with a combination of lifestyle adjustments, nutritional medicine, supplements and prescription medicine. We have also the support of affiliated practitioners.
And, you don't need to travel to us; we are 100% TELEMEDICINE.

Thyroid Health is our Passion
Have you suffered for years with symptoms of an underactive thyroid but been told that "everything is normal"? There is no one perfect way, no one symptom nor test result, that will properly diagnose low thyroid function or hypothyroidism. The key is to look at the whole picture – your symptoms and your blood tests – and then decide.
Most doctors just check something called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and sometimes your free T4 level, which doesn’t give a full picture of the thyroid.
The key is the right testing with a full thyroid profile including TSH, FT4, FT3 and antibodies to confirm that a sluggish thyroid is contributing to a stalled metabolism and other problems. Once you know this for sure there are many ways to help correct thyroid problems.
Can you afford NOT to take action?
If you don't take action, you likely stay where you are.
Our patients come from all of England, Scotland and Wales -

What patients say about us
Thank you for seeing me yesterday afternoon. I found it very insightful and your observations have confirmed something I had been wondering about for some time.
Definitely more Healthy and Alive: ImuPro 300
Great service; superb. It is important to note that IgE tests for allergies – this test, IgG, is more for intolerances. I used it as I believed it could be a useful pointer for experimenting with possibly beneficial dietary changes. I have now stopped eating dairy and some other foods, and am definitely feeling more healthy and alive. Many thanks!
You are one of the nicest doctors I ever met, it is your human skills!
Since starting the elimination diet and now cutting out any remaining foods on the ‘do not eat’ list I’ve noticed that my body is rapidly changing shape. … I never knew it’d be so easy to get such rapid results.
You are a lifesaver! Thanks for listening.
Treating Causes instead of Symptoms
Having someone medically trained to work with and point me in the right direction has been a huge relief as finally, I feel that the cause of my health issues are being looked at not just the symptoms being medicated.
This appointment has proved life-changing…
Following an appointment with Dr Frey in September 2018, and the results of the blood tests a couple of weeks later,
I followed all the advice given and also changed my supplements to those advised. For two weeks I had flu-like symptoms and felt very down, but, as I was desperate to change my low thyroid symptoms, I stuck with it. After three weeks I felt so much better; ‘brain fog’ lessened, gut problems (IBS) easing and generally feeling more well. I found a ‘tapping’ instructor on YouTube that I felt comfortable with and have followed this method of stress relief along with the meditation I was already doing morning and night.
It is now three months since my visit. Although the personal problems in my life persist, I am better able to cope with the stress, I sleep better and awake refreshed (something I hadn’t done for years), I can think and speak fluently and my memory has improved. And, by following a strict Paleo diet and cutting out the foods the blood test showed I had reactions to, I’ve lost 1.5 stone. I am not dieting in the conventional sense; I can eat as much as I like of the allowed foods. This has been the icing on the cake as I piled on 5 stone in the ten years since my under-active thyroid was diagnosed, despite being on levothyroxine that I had been assured would be all I needed to return to my normal self. I had tried many other diets in that time, with no weight loss.
Although I was initially anxious about the cost (hello, credit card!) I can honestly say it’s the best money I’ve ever spent as the consultation (and support from Dena) and following the plan has truly changed my life. Thank you!
First proper consultation
This was the first proper consultation I have ever had!
I am so glad to have found Country Health, from the very first chat to being two weeks into a new care plan it has been an excellent experience! Being listened to and understood regarding my diagnosis is not something that I got from my NHS doctor but Dr Frey was brilliant at explaining clearly what my options were. I have been taking my new medication for two weeks now and I feel like a different person! Plus there is always someone there at the end of the phone or by email should I need them, patient care at its finest! Thank you so much!
After a few months under the guidance of this practice my health has improved dramatically. Best of all my energy is back, a more positive outlook and I now have full confidence in an approach which is contemporary and investigative. If you’re still having hypothyroid symptoms and are ‘stuck’ on Levothyroxine T4, despite your numbers all ‘in range’, give this specialist clinic a go.
Client from Yorkshire
I am so glad I came. Thank you so much for listening to me and for being willing to help me on my health journey 🙂 I so appreciated your wisdom.
Dena is amazing.
The heart of any good practise lies in the person with whom patients have their first and often the most contact – Dena is the most incredible person, she always goes above and beyond to help and has done her utmost on numerous occasions to sort things out for me when pharmacies have made life difficult! She is always calm, understanding and is quite simply an amazing asset to CountryHealth – reassuring and efficient, she is a complete joy. Thank you so much Dena for all your help and support – you are a superstar.
It was like a Miracle
Talking to Dr. Frey and discovering that at last I had found a doctor who understood my problem was like a Miracle.
I loved his analogy of the oarsmen in a slave galley, paddling to the beat of a drum but not putting the oars fully into the water. Just 2 days after taking his new prescription which included some T3 I was feeling a new person. The best testimonial I can think of is backed up by the 2 photos of myself, (to follow by post) …one taken when I was feeling quite ill, and the other after only 4 days on the new prescription.
It is not an exaggeration to say that, after months of getting nowhere with the medical profession in Dorset, I at last found my salvation in the CountryHealth Practice and heartily wish that conventional medicine would listen to the experts who have made an in -depth study of thyroid problems.
Improved overall Health
I went to see Dr. Frey with several undiagnosed problems, these were primarily issues regarding my digestion and fatigue. Following Dr Frey’s advice, I eliminated gluten and dairy products from my diet and I noticed an improvement in my overall health. I was really pleased with the service I received as it was caring, detailed and had a refreshing outlook on health compared to other doctors I had previously seen.
