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 a natural treatment approach. 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 unfortunate, as while it might be necessary for some people with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis to take thyroid hormone medication, most endocrinologists don’t do anything to address the cause of the condition.
This is a big reason why many people search for a natural Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis treatment solution, as while the synthetic or natural thyroid hormone medication they are taking might help to manage their symptoms (although this isn’t always the case), more and more people are looking for a natural solution for their condition. This is true with many different conditions, including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Most patients are told by their endocrinologist that they can’t do anything to reverse the autoimmune process, and through conventional medical treatments this is absolutely 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
With 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 is an autoimmune condition that causes malfunction of the thyroid gland. So while some people do need to take thyroid hormone medication 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 the conventional medical treatment for Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis 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 take medication if someone has low or depressed thyroid hormone levels, don’t you think it’s a good idea to try to do what is necessary to improve the health of the immune system?
The problem is that it can actually be very challenging to accomplish this. 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. 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. There can be numerous factors which are responsible for the autoimmune response, such as stressed out adrenal glands, a leaky gut, an infection, estrogen dominance, etc.. 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 medication for the rest of their life. 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 have their health restored through a natural treatment protocol, most people can benefit from natural treatment methods. So for example, someone who has had elevated thyroid autoantibodies for many years might need to take thyroid hormone medication due to the amount of damage done to their thyroid gland. But even when this is the case they will want to correct any imbalances which lead to their autoimmune condition in the first place. So if the person has weakened adrenals, a leaky gut, or a chronic infection that is responsible for triggering the autoimmune response, then this needs to be addressed to help prevent other autoimmune conditions from developing in the future.
Please Don’t Self-Treat Your Autoimmune Thyroid Condition
Let’s remember that with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis we’re dealing with a complex autoimmune thyroid condition. As a result, anyone who thinks they can restore their health by simply take a few supplements and/or herbal remedies will be extremely disappointed with the outcome. Once again, we are talking about an immune system condition, and this in turn is responsible for the malfunctioning thyroid gland.
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 they end up wasting their money on nutritional supplements and herbs 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 healthcare professional who focuses on endocrine conditions, as they will evaluate your condition and give you the guidance you need to restore your health back to normal. And even if you need to continue taking thyroid hormone medication they can still help to improve the health of your immune system so that you won’t develop other autoimmune conditions in the future.
Searching For A Qualified Natural Endocrine Doctor
While consulting with a competent natural healthcare professional who focuses on endocrine conditions is usually a wise 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 natural healthcare professionals 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 conditions.
These days telemedicine is becoming more and more common, as more and more healthcare professionals are helping people remotely. And so even if you can’t find someone who can help you locally, if you have already been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and have received a physical examination, then it’s usually not a problem to work with a natural endocrine doctor remotely over the phone or through Skype. When I was personally diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid condition 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 consult with a natural healthcare professional who focuses on endocrine conditions. 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 perhaps even get to the point where you no longer need to take thyroid hormone medication.

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.
