If you have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and don’t want to rely on taking synthetic or natural thyroid hormone for the rest of your life, then you might want to consider natural treatment methods. While not everyone with this autoimmune thyroid condition is a candidate for natural treatment methods, one can’t argue that the conventional type of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis treatment procedures don’t do anything to help with the cause of this condition.
This is a big reason why many people search for a holistic Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis treatment solution, as while the synthetic or natural thyroid hormones they are taking might help manage their symptoms (although this isn’t always the case), more and more people are looking for a natural cure for their condition. This is true with many different conditions, including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Most patients are told that this condition is incurable, and through conventional medical treatments this is true. However, many people can have their health restored back to normal through a natural treatment protocol.
Getting To The Cause Of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
In just about every case of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, the malfunctioning thyroid gland is not the cause of the condition. In fact, while many people think of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis as a “thyroid condition”, it really needs to be looked at as an autoimmune condition that causes malfunction of the thyroid gland. So while some people do need to take thyroid hormone to manage the symptoms, one needs to keep in mind that this won’t do anything for the cause of the disorder.
On the surface this might not seem like a big deal, until you do some research and discover that people with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis are more likely to develop other autoimmune conditions, such as type one diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and many other conditions. A big reason for this is because a typical Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis treatment does nothing to address the autoimmune response, which when you really think about it is absurd. After all, if someone has a compromised immune system, while it might be necessary to give medication to manage the symptoms, don’t you think it’s a good idea to try to do what is necessary to strengthen the immune system?
As easy as this may sound, it can actually be quite complex. Some people think they can simply take an immune system support formula, along with a “thyroid booster”, and this combination will help to manage or cure their condition. The problem is that while the autoimmune response is what’s causing the body to attack its own thyroid gland, one needs to find out what’s causing the compromised immune system in the first place. Often times other areas of the body are responsible for the autoimmune response, such as stressed out adrenal glands, a poorly functioning digestive system, or a hormonal imbalance. These are just some of the common areas of the body that can be causing or contributing to the development of an autoimmune condition.
Incorporating A Natural Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Treatment Protocol
Just as a reminder, not everyone with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is a candidate for natural treatment methods. Some people with this condition do need to take synthetic or natural thyroid hormone for the rest of their lives. However, a competent natural endocrine doctor will be able to evaluate you and find out what is causing your condition, and let you know if you can be helped through natural treatment methods.
Although some people with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis can’t be cured through a natural treatment protocol, most people can benefit from natural treatment methods. So for example, someone who was initially diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and received radioactive iodine therapy or complete thyroid surgery might need to continue taking thyroid hormone daily. But once again, this doesn’t mean that this type of treatment is doing anything for the cause of their disorder. So if they have weakened adrenals or a hormonal imbalance that is causing the autoimmune response, then this needs to be addressed to help prevent other autoimmune conditions from developing in the future.
On the other hand, some people who have received such harsh treatment methods might still be able to have their health restored back to normal. While this isn’t the case with someone who had their thyroid gland completely removed, some people who have received radioactive iodine or had only part of their thyroid gland removed can have the function of their thyroid gland restored back to normal. Besides having an amazing ability to regenerate under the right situation, the body is also great at adapting. So again, don’t automatically rule out natural treatment methods until you consult with an expert.
Please Don’t Self-Treat Your Autoimmune Thyroid Disorder
Let’s remember that we’re dealing with an autoimmune thyroid condition here, so for anyone who thinks they can cure their condition by simply take a few supplements and/or herbal remedies, they will be extremely disappointed with the outcome. Once again, we are dealing with a complex condition here, and not just a malfunctioning thyroid gland. Truth to be told, even “simple” cases of hypothyroidism are risky to self-treat, so you can imagine how difficult treating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis can be on your own.
Nevertheless, some people will visit their local health food store and try to save money by treating the condition on their own. What almost always happens is that they don’t experience optimal results, and end up wasting their money on supplements that are ineffective. And the reason for this is because while most people with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis have nutritional deficiencies, different people will require different nutritional supplements, as well as different dosages. Plus, there are other components that come into play when trying to restore one’s health. So do yourself a favor and consult with a competent natural endocrine doctor, as they will evaluate your condition and give you the guidance you need to restore your health back to normal, assuming this is possible of course.
Searching For A Qualified Natural Endocrine Doctor
While consulting with a competent natural endocrine doctor is usually the best thing to do, the problem is that it’s not easy to find a holistic doctor who has a lot of experience helping people with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Most holistic doctors don’t just focus on endocrine disorders, but see a wide variety of different conditions. This doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t be able to help someone with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, but since this is a complex condition, it is probably best to seek the advice of a natural doctor who deals primarily with endocrine disorders.
Fortunately you don’t have to consult with one in person, as if you have already been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and have received a physical examination, then it’s usually not a problem to communicate with a natural endocrine doctor remotely over the phone. When I was personally diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid disorder, it would have been nice to speak with someone face to face. But since there wasn’t anyone who practiced in my area who focused on treating endocrine disorders naturally, I ended up consulting with someone remotely.
And to this day I have absolutely no regrets, as I received great results and had no problem with the long distance communication. So no matter where you live, there really isn’t a good excuse not to speak with a natural endocrine doctor. When you think about it you really have nothing to lose, but have a lot to gain, as you just might find out that it’s possible to restore your health back to normal and stop taking thyroid hormone every day.

Here are some of my patients with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions who have benefited from following a natural treatment protocol.
I was concerned about an ongoing “mental fog” and forgetfulness I had – which is one of the symptoms of Hashimoto’s. I was having trouble losing weight and also felt very low in energy. Since following Dr. Osansky’s recommendations I have found that I have a greater sense of calm – something I didn’t expect from the treatment and changes in diet and lifestyle. In addition to getting my Hashimoto’s under control, I have enjoyed other health benefits as well. I no longer suffer from anemia, my Vitamin D levels are normal and my immune system is strong. My thyroid blood tests also improved. Although it’s a commitment and initial expense, it is completely worth it in the long run. Given the alternative (taking thyroid medication for the rest of your life), in my opinion it’s a no brainer. If you give a natural treatment protocol a fair chance you’d be surprised at how much more empowered you’ll feel about your illness and treating it. A natural treatment protocol is an effective solution that puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to your health. Traditional methods do the exact opposite.
Howard Beach, NY
When I first began the natural treatment plan for my autoimmune hypothyroid condition my top five symptoms were chest pain (diagnosed with costochondritis), fatigue, memory loss, stomach upset, and muscle weakness. No matter how much rest I got, I was still tired. Additionally I did not sleep well either. Originally, I didn’t feel much different. I believe the reason for that to be because I was only taking a portion of the recommended natural supplements, as well as the fact that I had only changed some of my diet. When I really got serious about making changes is when I began to really see improvements. Although this does require a change in lifestyle, I feel much better today. The natural treatment protocol allowed me to delve deeper into the root of the problem and address it so that I will hopefully not need to be on these supplements for the rest of my life. I have already cut back on some of my supplements since my last blood work results.
I was struggling with such symptoms of hypothyroidism such as fatigue, digestive and sleep issues, slight weight gain, sensitivity to heat and cold, depression, muscle weakness and hair loss. I have noticed positive changes in my mood; I have also become much less sensitive to cold. I am sleeping better as well. I am on a gluten free diet as well and I must say I feel better than ever. I am not fatigued or easily tired anymore; no digestive issues or hair loss. Actually, I am symptom free now So thanks again for your help! TSH/T3/T4 have all improved. Also red blood cell count /vitamin D/DHEA/ improved. No zinc and copper deficiency anymore. Yes, it’s much easier to take a drug…but if you are looking for a cure, give a natural treatment protocol (and your internal system!) a fair chance.
