These are not thyroid problems but immune problems! Your immune system is mistakenly attacking thyroid peroxidase (TPO) or thyroid-binding globulin (TBG) (Hashimoto’s) or thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) (Graves’ Disease). There is an imbalance in your immune system that needs to be addressed.

You need proper testing to first find out the cause of your immune problem – then you can take care of it.

Why Would Your Immune System Do This?

1. Dystregulation:
Immune system is imbalanced because of stressors to it.

  • Chronic inflammation
  • Bad blood sugar
  • Bad adrenal glands
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Neurological imbalances

2. Active Antigen:
Immune system is imbalanced due to an “invader” aka an antigen.

  • Chronic infection (bacterial, viral, mold)
  • Parasite in gut
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • Environmental toxins
  • Undigested food

Triad of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

  1. Antibodies to TPO/TBG
  2. Gluten sensitivity
  3. Antibodies to intrinsic factor which leads to lowered B12 which lead to pernicious anemia
