Thyroid

What is The Thyroid? 

Oh, the Thyroid…so small, so seemingly imperceptible…and yet, so commonly found at the root of so many chronic conditions. Sometimes the problem is with the thyroid not producing enough hormones, sometimes it’s too many. The traditional method of treatment in these cases would be hormone replacement therapy (HRT i.e. Synthroid, Levothyroxine, Cytomel, and Armour).

But what should you do if you’ve tried HRT with no results? Or if your thyroid levels seem normal, but you are still showing symptoms of hypothyroidism? Oftentimes, the answer is not in your thyroid hormone levels, but in your thyroid antibodies. With conditions like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, the patient can present with hypothyroid-like symptoms, but have normal hormone levels. In this case, the immune system is actually attacking the thyroid. This can be due to inflammation, gut hyper-permeability, viral infections in the thyroid, or a number of other oftentimes overlooked causes.

The answer to this issue is that the immune system is at the root of thyroid dysfunction in most cases. When this happens, the immune system turns on an individuals body, which some research articles state can create very similar symptoms to hypothyroidism.
