Natural remedies for Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
In order for hashimoto’s natural remedies to work properly, they have to be focused on two things: balancing and supporting the immune system. If you only take synthetic thyroid replacement medication you’re not fixing the problem, but working around it.
It’s like digging a big hole to distract people from the smaller hole. In the end, you still have a hole and now an even larger one.
Plus, if you only take thyroid replacement medications, the destruction to your thyroid gland continues. Overtime your body will require constant adjustments to your thyroid medications usually resulting in higher and higher dosages to cause the same effect. The result: increased risk for degenerative brain diseases, like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.
Can food affect Hashimoto’s?
One of the easiest factors to start with is your food. Find out which types of foods are causing irritation in your immune system. The two most common food intolerances are gluten and dairy.
Eliminate high allergen foods such as dairy, gluten/wheat, eggs, soy, dairy and corn for several weeks. Then add them back into your diet 1 at a time every 3 days to see if you it creates any kind of reaction or digestive distress. This is a great way to discover hidden food sensitivities you didn’t know you had, that can be contributing to irritation of your immune system.
