The origins of autoimmune thyroid disease should be appropriately viewed from the context of immunological dysregulation, set forth by a myriad number of genetic and epigenetic factors. This view should seek to investigate the metabolic significances of thyroid physiology, with its highly oxidative environment, as well as its propensities towards heightened danger signaling and innate
Summary 78% of people with autoimmune disease are women The rate of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is 7X more likely to occur in women than men Lower estrogen increases CD8 lymphocytes, which is central to activation of TH1 inflammatory immunity and viral defense Evidence from mice suggests Estradiol medication can reactivate HSV-1 (herpes simplex-1) EBV (epstein barr virus)
Hypothyroidism is a remarkably common health issue today. Essentially there are numerous types of thyroid issues that can arise, and they are not all the same. For example, autoimmune thyroiditis (called Haschimoto’s) is not necessarily the same problem as a non-autoimmune functionally low thyroid state. Even though the conventional medical treatment for both is the
Thyroid conditions are seemingly epidemic. However, it is essential to understand that there are numerous types of thyroid imbalances. Ironically, most thyroid conditions are treated by allopathic medicine in the same blanketed fashion. Nowhere does allopathy even come close to touching the core issues of thyroid dysfunction, nor the causative, underlying factors that lead to
If you’ve been following my posts regarding my Functional Blood Chemistry & Nutritional Analysis course, you may recall my discussion regarding nutritional physiology. Every time that I would give lectures or webinars on functional blood chemistry analysis, afterwards I felt like there were missing pieces of information. I’ve always had a good way of teaching
Hypothyroidism and subclinical hypothyroidism are very common presentations in today’s world. Essentially there are 2 forms of low thyroid function: autoimmune hypothyroidism and non-autoimmune hypothyroidism. Because thyroid hormone is essential to every cell of the body, decreases in thyroid function may result in an array of symptoms and altercations to many bodily systems and functions.
Thyroid conditions are increasingly common. Some researchers and clinicians would argue that thyroid conditions are an epidemic. When thyroid conditions are present, the thyroid is treated as if the thyroid itself is the core of the problem. But in reality, when thyroid issues exist, it is only one piece of the problem. What is important
Endocrine dysfunction is becoming increasingly more common. Thyroid conditions are epidemic. Adrenal exhaustion is all too common. There are a plethora of approaches to healing, restoration and regeneration of the endocrine system. However it should be pointed out that correcting these issues are often complex, take a good deal of patience and attention to detail.
Last week I wrote an article on how hypothyroidism can be directly caused by depleted adrenal glands. We looked at causative factors such as: Toxicity such as mercury and fluoride Nutritional Deficiencies Elevated Cortisol and CRH due to stress How Do You Know if You Have a Possible Thyroid/Adrenal Issues?
