Natural Hashimoto’s Care

Natural Hashimoto’s Care in Greenville SC

Have you been told by a healthcare provider that you don’t have hypothyroidism, but you’re struggling with symptoms that suggest you do? Maybe you’ve experienced an unexplained weight gain, you’re suffering with extreme fatigue, or brain fog is interfering with your work and ability to handle daily tasks. It may be you’re losing hair, or constantly battling dry skin.

It’s extremely frustrating when you know these symptoms indicate low thyroid, but according to lab work, there is nothing wrong with your thyroid. If this sounds familiar, your problem may be caused by autoimmunity that in time will eventually lead to hypothyroidism.

Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune condition that causes hypothyroid symptoms in an estimated 9 out of 10 cases of low thyroid symptoms, whether or not hypothyroid is actually confirmed by lab work. The immune system that is supposed to protect us against illness by attacking things like viruses or foreign bacteria instead attacks tissue of the body. Hashimoto’s involves the immune system’s attack on thyroid tissue.

As thyroid tissue is destroyed, the individual struggles with symptoms. These may involve the same symptoms associated with confirmed cases of hypothyroidism. Sometimes low thyroid symptoms alternate with symptoms of an overactive thyroid, too. Hashimoto’s can cause extremely uncomfortable and even debilitating symptoms along with a great deal of frustration and stress for patients who are never properly evaluated and never receive the right care and support for their condition.

If you do have Hashimoto’s and your healthcare provider does test for and identify it, it’s very important to seek out the right therapeutic support. In order to minimize damage to the thyroid, what’s driving the autoimmune response must be identified and addressed.

One option for healthcare that will address the autoimmune component of your condition is functional wellness care. A functional wellness practitioner will determine what in your environment, lifestyle or diet is driving the autoimmunity. Testing can determine very precisely what your body is responding to, and you can then take steps to avoid triggering that response.

Autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s are complex and there is no quick, easy way to control it. But if you work with an experienced healthcare provider who understands autoimmune conditions, you can achieve results that help you feel much better. Functional wellness care is safe, natural and drug-free, and it’s designed to help patients achieve lasting improvements in their health and optimal wellness that lasts a lifetime.

It’s very important you don’t wait to obtain the help you need if you have Hashimoto’s. The longer you wait, the worse you feel as the destruction of thyroid tissue continues. It’s worth noting too that people who have an autoimmune condition often have more than one. The longer you wait to address autoimmunity, the more likely it is you will develop another disease such as Crohn’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Type 1 diabetes.
