Generally, the most common misdiagnosis of hypothyroidism in this country is an autoimmune response or autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, named after the Japanese scientist who discovered it.
It is estimated that nearly 70% of Americans suffer from some form of autoimmune disorder — usually undiagnosed. Autoimmune disorders attack your own body tissues due to imbalances within our protective immune responses. When it comes to Hashimoto’s, your own thyroid gland is attacked and destroyed over time by your own body. Hashimoto’s can lay dormant for years before it begins 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 then activates a feedback system that tells your brain to turn off your thyroid. Within days, the typical hypothyroid symptoms of tiredness and depression are back. Unfortunately we cannot claim to reverse your thyroid condition. No doctor can say that. But do we have excellent results in helping thyroid disorders? Yes! So what do we do? We look at the underlying abnormal functions of the body that creates the condition and support normalcy in the body with diet, exercise, specific nutritional supplementation, and proper doctor-guided mentoring to help you on your path toward making your body whole.
Hashimoto’s is NOT a thyroid disorder; it is an autoimmune disease. You must stop the autoimmune response of the body to the thyroid to stop the Hashimoto’s Disease.
