Hoyt Integrative Health Offers Help For Hashimoto’s Patients
Hashimoto's is an autoimmune condition in which your immune system produces antibodies that attack your thyroid and if not addressed it can eventually attack other organs causing a variety of symptoms affecting a person’s health and well-being. Our methods at Hoyt Integrative Health can alleviate problems related to the thyroid gland. We provide an integrative approach to resolve problems at the source. If you prefer virtual help online or if you live in or around Murrieta and have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, see our online scheduler for a discovery consultation.
What Is Hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism is a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland fails to produce sufficient amounts of the thyroid hormone. Thyroxin is a hormone used for many regulatory functions in the human body. Hashimoto’s is one of the most common forms of hypothyroidism, affecting millions of people in the United States. This condition can cause a variety of symptoms that can affect a person’s quality of life.
The Symptoms of Hashimoto’s
Hashimoto’s patients often experience several symptoms at once. They may have unexplained weight gain, sensitivity to cold, fatigue, low energy, dry skin, brittle nails, hair loss, constipation, and muscle aches. Depression, anxiety, heart palpitations, insomnia, irritability, loss of joy and memory loss may also occur.
The Causes of Hashimoto’s
Many times it's not just one thing triggering the immune system to go off the rails causing an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body begins to attack itself. The condition generally affects women more than men and can often be triggered by hormone swings such as the beginning of puberty, pregnancies and menopause. If someone in your family has had autoimmune problems, you are more likely to develop this condition. If you have other autoimmune problems, you may also be susceptible to Hashimoto syndrome. Those who have been exposed to radiation are also more susceptible to this condition.
Relief from Hashimoto’s
Conventional medicine generally addresses Hashimoto’s by replacing deficient thyroid hormones. This is done by taking prescription oral thyroid hormone replacement which are taken daily and frequently become a life time regime. An integrated approach can also be used to optimize your systems and reverse the misery by enhancing organ functions at the most fundamental level, allowing the body to heal itself. Improving general physical functions, increasing energy, mental clarity and joy while losing weight are frequently the side effects of optimizing organ functions and reducing inflammation.
