One of the common causes of thyroid disorder is Hashimoto’s. This is inflammation of the thyroid when the immune system turns on itself and attacks the thyroid.
A significant root cause of Hashimoto’s is an imbalanced microbiome.
As microbiome specialists, we go much further than just suggesting you take a probiotic- our deeper testing reveals precisely which probiotics are needed. (There’s a good chance you’re taking the wrong one.) There are very specific probiotics—and prebiotics—which heal the gut. Our model of treatment targets exactly which formulas you need.
Brain fog / memory loss
Cold hands and feet
Poor immune function
Aches and pains
Feeling like you’re “aging”
Just “not feeling good”
THREE PRONGS OF HASHIMOTO’S In most patients, we see these three elements setting the stage for Hashimoto’s:
Trigger Event—Can be stress, a viral infection, emotional issue (in fact a major contributing factor can even be an “Adverse Childhood Experience” or ACE—which play a tremendous role in adult-onset illness), environmental toxins, mold exposure, Lyme Disease
Genetics—some people are genetically more susceptible.
The conventional approach is to go on a thyroid hormone. While that might clear up some of the symptoms for a period of time, it’s not going to cure the cause, the autoimmunity. Only by addressing the microbiome can Hashimoto’s be reversed. Even if experts tell you that you can’t reverse the antibodies—YOU CAN, but only when you address all of the underlying factors.
