How to Heal Your Thyroid Naturally!

The first question you might ask is, “How do you help thyroid disorder patients with natural protocols?” – By getting to the cause! You HAVE to get to the CAUSE because this is where the M.D. has failed and why you are searching for answers! You really need to get down to the nitty-gritty. So what is the cause? That is the question that you should be asking. The cause is a poor or improperly functioning immune system, inflammation and increased toxins within the body.
In the vast majority of thyroid cases that present to my office, the patient’s thyroid is being attacked by their immune system. This is why so many thyroid patients are taking medication but they STILL feel horrible. Even IF you have had your thyroid removed, you can STILL feel terrible because you just didn’t have a “thyroid problem,” you also had an immune system problem!
How do you know if you are suffering from an autoimmune thyroid or Hashimoto’s? A simple blood test will tell you. By ordering both TPO and TGB antibodies, a patient will know if their immune system is attacking their thyroid. You can also order a specific test from Cyrex Labs (Array #5) that will tell you all of the different parts of your body that are being attacked by your immune system. The problem is that the vast majority of physicians will not run these blood tests because they are clueless when it comes to treating a patient with an autoimmune condition like Hashimoto’s.
