WHAT’S GOING ON IN HASHIMOTO’S
There’s more to Hashimoto’s then just low thyroid function.
Most patients with Hashimoto’s will present with acid reflux, nutrient deficiencies, anemia, intestinal permeability, food sensitivities, gum disorders and hypoglycemia in addition to the “typical” hypothyroid symptoms such as weight gain, cold intolerance, hair loss, fatigue and constipation.
The body becomes stuck in a chronic state of immune system overload, adrenal insufficiency, gut dysbiosis, impaired digestion, inflammation, and thyroid hormone release abnormalities.
This cycle is interrelated and reinforces itself through a positive feedback loop, meaning the cycle is self sustaining and will continue causing more an more symptoms until an external factor intervenes and breaks the cycle apart.
