Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder in which the patient's immune system attacks the thyroid. Patients that suffer from Hashimoto's experience some or all of the above symptoms.
Let's talk about the thyroid gland.
The thyroid "runs" our metabolism. It is the "gas pedal" of the body.
Thyroid hormones have a direct effect on most organs, including the heart, which beats quicker and harder under the influence of increased thyroid hormones (this is why heart problems can often accompany chronic thyroid problems in women, and perhaps why heart problems are more common in women under the age of 50).
T3 is the more biologically active hormone. It's more vital for cellular function, and in fact, 80% of T4 is converted to T3 in the body's peripheral tissues. Basically, T4 is just a precursor for the more active hormone, T3.
One of the problems in some thyroid disorders is that you may have trouble converting T4 to T3 in your tissues. Have you been checked for this? This can create a deficiency of T3, disrupting the body's ability to properly regulate metabolism, which leads to specific symptoms.
There are some clinicians that are treating thyroid conditions with iodine. I do not recommend iodine in the treatment of thyroid conditions. According to renowned thyroid expert Dr. Datis Kharriazian, author of the book "Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms?", using iodine to treat thyroid conditions is like throwing gasoline on a fire.
How do I successfully treat thyroid disorders?
By using specific metabolic and neurological protocalls!
#1 Specific metabolic testing and treatments
Sensativity testing: To determine if you have a sensitivity to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, and barely), milk, eggs, yeast, and soy. If you are sensitive to any of these food groups, it could be making your condition worse as it will increase irritation in your brain and throughout your body!
Here are some of the symptoms of these sensitivities:
1. Chronic pain or fatique
2. Frequent indigestion
3. Bloated after eating
4. Frequent loose bowel movements
6. Mouth ulcers or sores
7. Vomit often
The only way to find out if you are suffering from any of these sensitivities is to run these tests.
We also run complete blood panels by using specific blood tests such as:
1. A thyroid panel
2. A complete metabolic panel (CMP)
3. A lipid panel
4. A CBC (Complete blood chemistry with auto differential)
I am here to tell you that there is new hope, thanks to our drug-free and natural protocols!
Our method is revolutionary in that it addresses the source of thyroid disorders by using progressive lab measurements and complete funtional brain based protocol!
We are the only clinic in Fort Wayne, Indiana to use a combined functional metabolic and neurological protocol that deals with the exact causes of thyroid problems.
· Are you tired of running from doctor to doctor only to play “Russian roulette” with different medication? “Here try this drug, that one didn’t work? Try this one!”
· Are you tired of taking drugs that don’t fix the problem?
· Do you constantly struggle with chronic pain and fatigue every day?
If you are tired of running from doctor to doctor without results and want someone that is going to get the true cause of your problem, then it is important that you call Dr. Chalfant’s office for a free Thyroid information class.
