Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is often misdiagnosed and mismanaged by traditional medicine, as autoimmune attacks are not often addressed. Since a person’s autoimmune response is ignored, over time, more of the thyroid gland is destroyed as the disease progresses. This is why prescribing natural medications such as Armour Thyroid, WP Thyroid, etc. does nothing to help the autoimmune condition. As a result, natural thyroid is used to treat Hashimoto’s. However, it is only effective in conjunction with the necessary supplements to help heal the gut and rebuild the thyroid. Therefore, Hashimoto’s must be treated as an autoimmune disease.

Our expertise in hormone imbalances and functional medicine make us uniquely able to treat Hashimoto’s as an autoimmune disease.

Everything You Need to Know About Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
The symptoms of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis include fatigue, dry skin, hair loss, muscle aches, depression, and constipation. It’s important to treat Hashimoto’s early to avoid more serious conditions. Since most of the immune system is situated in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, poor gut health is a significant factor in triggering and exacerbating autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s. The next important step in taming Hashimoto’s is to repair gut health. Our protocol regulates the immune response and stop the destruction of the thyroid gland along with restoring the immune barrier of the gut lining. Therefore, since gluten is a common trigger of Hashimoto’s, a gluten-free diet is a must.
What is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis?
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the immune system turns against the body’s own tissues. In people with Hashimoto’s, the immune system attacks the thyroid. This then can lead to hypothyroidism. This is a condition in which the thyroid does not make enough hormones for the body’s needs.
What is the cause of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis?
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder. Normally, your autoimmune system protects your body by attacking bacteria and viruses. However, with this disease, your immune system attacks your thyroid gland by mistake. Therefore, your thyroid then can’t make enough hormones, so your body can’t work as well.
Who is at risk for Hashimoto’s?
Things that may make it more likely to you for to get Hashimoto’s thyroiditis are:
- Being a woman. Women are about 7 times more likely to have the disease.
- Middle age. Most cases happen between 40 to 60 years of age. But it can affect younger people.
- Heredity. Furthermore, the disease tends to run in families.
- Autoimmune diseases. These health problems raise a person’s risk. Some examples are rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes. Having this type of thyroiditis puts you at higher risk for other autoimmune illnesses.
How do you diagnose Hashimoto’s thyroiditis?
Your healthcare provider will ask about your medical history and give you a physical exam. Then, you will have blood tests that measure several hormone levels and check for specific antibodies.
