Hashimoto thyroid disease is, obviously, a problem with the thyroid. It is also an autoimmune condition. Other names for this condition are Hashimoto’s disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, autoimmune thyroiditis or chronic lymphocyclic thyroiditis.
Hashimoto disease is an inflammation of the thyroid. There is a gradual destruction of the thyroid, over time.
There are three stages – silent autoimmunity, autoimmune reactivity and the autoimmune disease state.
Generally, this condition is slow. It can take up to a decade for symptoms to emerge.
Hashimoto disease symptoms include:
weight gain, cold extremities, fatigue, muscle and/or joint pain, dry skin, brittle nails, thinning hair, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, memory loss, constipation, depression, bloating, heavy menstrual periods, to name a few.
As you can imagine, these symptoms are shared with many other conditions. How does anyone clear the haze to diagnose? I suggest this is difficult.
From an holistic practitioner’s perspective, I am in a fortunate position. Homeopaths don’t diagnose. Diagnosis is strictly a medical practice. And I suggest, not a very reliable, or even accurate one. Some conditions are mis-diagnosed. Some conditions are yet to be named and listed.
The reason for medical diagnosis is to make the doctor’s job easier. If they can diagnose a disease, they can prescribe a drug. Consultation over in the five minutes allowed.
I personally don’t feel that you can take all the details of relevance in any given patient in five minutes. Or 10. Or even 30. Which goes a long way to explain why people are generally becoming more sick, despite regular medical check ups.
First of all, a cause need to be elicited, where possible. This is not easy in a slowly developing condition, such as Hashimoto thyroid disease. But, if you know what you’re doing, you can see a point when a healthy person started to become sick. When things started on a downwards spiral, however slight. Whatever significant that happened before that, could be the cause.
There can be a multitude of causes, sometimes more than one. Basically, there will have been something that caused the immune system grief, so that it could no longer operate in its usual efficient way. We all hold latent problems that can be brought to the surface with the right stimulus.
Common stimulating causes that upset the immune system badly include a severe shock, fright or grief, a long standing life of anxiety or irritation, vaccines, medical drugs and so forth. If we can’t fully recover from an emotional or physical effect, then our health starts to deteriorate.
These causes are not medically recognised. Even if they were, there is nothing they can do with this information. So suppressive treatment is their only option.
In homeopathic treatment, we are much more fortunate. Not only are these causes taken very seriously, we are able to treat them very effectively.
Homeopathy is a complete form of natural medicine which works by gently stimulating the immune system. This results in your natural immunity returning to its full potential. Symptoms melt away and are easily forgotton. You go back to your good old self, or better.
Diet is very important in anyone’s overall health. Many foods cause inflammation, such as junk food, processed food and animal protein. Equally, many foods reduce inflammation, such as fresh fruit and vegetables.
Toxicity affects everyone’s health and the more toxic you are the more unhealthy you will be. Toxicity comes from chemicals, unnatural substances which our bodies don’t recognise. Chemicals abound in non-organic food, in furnishings, in vaccines and in medical drugs.
Use professional homeopathy to treat your Hashimoto thyroid disease to resolve the problem completely! This may take time, but you will increasingly improve under the right treatment. Instead of deteriorating, your condition will improve, reversing the downwards spiral.
