How many times have you heard from your doctor “All for your labs are normal” but you still don’t feel good?
As we all know, it isn’t that simple.The one-size-fits-all approach does not address several underlying causes that can interfere with your thyroid. Hypothyroidism is one of the most misdiagnosed conditions in this country. Typical blood labs used by most medial practitioners include only TSH, T4 (inactive), T3 (active) and perhaps free T3. Here’s the problem what if you are not converting the 60% of T4 (inactive) to T3 (active)? Did you know that your labs can look normal even if your not converting properly?
There are many physiologic conditions that can hinder this process resulting in the lack of active T3 and therefore thyroid symptoms. Thyroid and Hormonal resistance can be the result of one or more of the following:
- Adrenal, or Pituitary conditions
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Hormone imbalances (All 600 of them)
- Food allergies and sensitivities
- Gastro-intestinal imbalances (actually worsened with the “anti-acids”)
- Drug Interactions
- Psychological and emotional issues
- Food Addictions
- The list goes on and on…
Generally, the most common misdiagnosis for hypothyroidism in this country is an autoimmune response or autoimmune disorder called “Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis”, named after the Japanese scientist that discovered it.
It is estimated that nearly 70% of Americans suffer from some form of autoimmune disorder, mostly undiagnosed. Autoimmune disorders attack your own body tissues due to imbalances in within our protective immune responses. When it comes to “Hashimoto’s” your own thyroid gland is attacked and destroyed over time. For many years this immune disorder can lay dormant, eventually waking to begin its’ destructive process.
When the autoimmune process is activated, thyroid tissue is destroyed and released into the blood often causing hyperthyroid symptoms such as anxiousness, nervousness, heart palpitations and even night sweats. This in turn activates a feedback system that tells your brain to turn off your thyroid. Within days your back to typical hypothyroid symptoms of feeling sluggish, tired and depressed.
Here’s why, In traditional medicine the protocol is to place you on thyroid medication whenever this marker is suggesting hypothyroidism, regardless of the possibility of “Hashimoto’s”. The problem with this protocol is that it will allow the autoimmune response to continue on its destructive path and will eventually destroy all of your thyroid. Now medication now becomes mandatory even though you still have the auto immune response still continuing and it will more than likely attack other organs.
Please Note: Hashimoto’s is NOT a thyroid disorder it is an auto immune disease. you must stop the auto immune response of the body to the thyroid to stop the Hashimoto’s Disease.
