How Do I Fix My Thyroid Issues Without Medication?

“If you’re struggling with thyroid challenges such as feeling cold all the time, weight loss resistance, fatigue, thinning hair, brittle nails, or joint pain; these are the typical signs that you might have a thyroid issue. “

“Here’s the thing: most thyroid problems are actually autoimmune in nature. The most common thyroid issue is a condition called Hashimoto’s. Hashimoto’s is not a problem with your thyroid per se; it’s a problem with your immune system. With Hashimoto’s, your immune system is attacking your thyroid (does that make sense?). The most common western medical treatment for hypothyroid conditions is Levothyroxine or Synthroid. When you get prescribed this medication, it “fixes” your blood work to make sure your levels of TSH, T3, T4 are within normal range. However, you’re still walking around with all the symptoms because the root cause was never addressed, which is most often an immune system problem. Yes, 10% of the time it could be a TSH, T3, T4, or another underlying issue. But most of the time, it’s your immune system that’s attacking the thyroid.”

How We Find Out If You’re Having Thyroid Issues

“There’s a quick simple test that we can do in our office called TPO. We’re checking for antibodies to determine whether or not your problems are immune system-related or if the root cause is actually a problem with your thyroid. If we determine that you are one of that 90% of people that have an autoimmune issue that’s causing your thyroid disease, then we have to heal your immune system first. We have to address your digestive system because most of your immune system is in your gut. It’s necessary to address these things in order for you to get relief, so we have to take the stress and pressure off of your immune system.”

“We perform food inflammation testing and guide you through healing protocols to improve your immune system function. We also guide you through the reduction of the toxins that come into your system through food, water, air, and any chemicals such as cosmetics or cleaning supplies you come into contact with. We can also take you through a guided detox protocol. That will help your body decrease the current level of inflammation. It’s also very important to fill any mineral and vitamin deficiencies that you must have. Our food is very poor quality and our soil is lacking, so finding out what you’re deficient in and then supplementing with very good quality vitamins and minerals is imperative to give your immune system a fighting chance.”
