Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis which is an auto immune disease, is one of the most common diseases around that causes an under active thyroid or hypothyroidism. The thyroid is one of the most important organs, so its more important to solve Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis than to spend the rest of your life on hormone replacement therapy.
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is the result of having an immune system that is attacking the thyroid which causes the thyroid to become under active, the main reason Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis develops is because the main cause of the disease are left unchecked and this causes an imbalance in the immune system.
There are of course many factors that can cause Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis so let’s explore a number of ways you can solve the disease.
Causes & Solutions of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
We know that HT (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis) is an auto immune disease, we also know that genetically many people have gene mutations with their immune system which is a major contributing factor, in this case a simple genetic immune test can confirm the problem genes and give valuable information on how you can manipulate these problem genes naturally to help resolve HT.
One of the problems associated with HT is that it causes an under active thyroid, often this condition is also the result of having nutritional imbalances of specific nutrients that:
a) The thyroid needs to stay healthy
b) That the immune system needs to stay healthy
When these specific nutrients become out of balance and or deficient both the thyroid and the immune suffer, this compromises the immune system whose response is to react in ways that it wouldn’t normally do, which could be why you have an under active thyroid and an abnormal immune response. Taking a nutritional balance test can help discover those nutrients behind the problem. Once these essential nutrients are replenished the thyroid and the immune system can revert back to normal bringing an end to HA.
Thyroid hormone imbalance
If you have HA, you likely already know that you have thyroid hormone imbalances and the treatment for this is usually hormone replacement therapy (HRT) which covers up the fact that you have an under active thyroid, testing the balance of all the important components including the hormones involved with the thyroid can help you discover other imbalances that normal thyroid tests don’t look for.
Many people are unaware of the importance of co-factors that make the thyroid function properly, this means making sure your thyroid has key levels of hormones produced by your thyroid such as T4, T3, T4/T3 ratios, plus co-factors tyrosine, iodine and selenium which all play a role in thyroid health and can be contributing factors in HA. Take the extensive thyroid test to discover imbalances that can be corrected making HRT unnecessary in many cases.
Allergies & Sensitivities
With HA the immune system is overactive, often the underlying cause can be because of allergies and or sensitivities to foods and chemicals. When you have allergies or sensitivity your immune system starts to work overtime, this means more immune activity which leads to more inflammation. By finding out which foods and or chemicals you are allergic or sensitive to and ruling them out, can bring a lot of relief to your immune system helping to calm it down resulting in less damage to the thyroid by the immune system. Food allergies and or sensitivities are often behind auto immune disorders so it makes good sense to discover which foods you may be sensitive to, the best way to do that is:
Heavy metal toxicity
Thyroid problems can often be as a result of toxic heavy metals that end up in the thyroid, these heavy metals apart from being toxic can interfere with essential nutrients that the thyroid need for good health. In the case of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis the immune system sees that there is foreign toxic substances in the thyroid and goes about attacking the thyroid in an attempt to remove the threat. Heavy metals that end up in the thyroid are can come from many external environments however many people have heavy metals in their mouth such as metal amalgam fillings which leach over time from the teeth into the thyroid which is only centimeters away from your teeth. Testing for heavy metals can be a great start to discovering heavy metal toxicity and being able to take actions to remove the metals from the thyroid helping to break the auto immune cycle.
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis can sometimes be the result of parasites that have invaded the thyroid which the immune system attempts to kill off the parasites but does damage to the thyroid in the process. Parasites in the thyroid can be killed using a parasite herbal formula however this often needs to be done after or during a nutritional balancing program to ensure that natural defenses are restored after the parasites are killed, this helps prevent reinfection.
With such a complex problem as HA it can be difficult to solve, if you’re not sure where to start just contact one our qualified practitioners here.
