“How to Heal Thyroid With Foods” is a guest post by Magdalena Wszelaki of Thyroid Diet Coach. She is a holistic practitioner who specializes in thyroid treatments that address the underlying causes of thyroid problems.
20 million American people, mostly women, suffer from thyroid related diseases. Out of these 20 million only 50% have been diagnosed. This means there are about 10 million of us who might be undiagnosed and misdiagnosed – this results in an ongoing struggle with unexplained weight gain, fatigue, depression and infertility.
Today’s medicine answer to thyroid diseases is to either nuke the thyroid (for hyperthyroidism) or prescribe synthetic hormone replacement drugs like Synthroid (for hypothyroidism). For too many of us these “treatments” do not help to recover and do not make us feel at our optimal health.
Why Most Thyroid Treatments Don’t Heal Your Thyroid
Here is why: most thyroid conditions fall into the category of autoimmune conditions – it means that the immune system starts to attack the thyroid gland, mistaking it for an enemy and a foreign object. This means that if you are suffering from a thyroid condition you most likely have an autoimmune disease when nothing is wrong with your thyroid.
This is why today’s medical practices do not work for many people – doctors address the thyroid (which is not the problem) and not the immune system which is the cause of our health challenges in the first place. Doctors shy away from explaining this to patients as Western medicine today has nothing to offer a patient with an autoimmune disorder.
Another Approach – How To Heal Thyroid With Foods
However, there is hope. And there are recovery stories and successes of those who take an alternative path to health and heal thyroid with foods.
The answer is: your nutrition.
Hippocrates, the father of Western Medicine, said: “All diseases start in the gut.” Our gut, or the digestive system, is sacred to our health as it is also the home to our immune system. Our small intestine is the host of gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT in short) which is where the immune system lives.
Not surprisingly, most people with thyroid and autoimmune conditions also experience digestive challenges in the form of chronic bloating, constipation, gas, acid reflux and digestive pain. Each of these digestive symptoms puts incredible pressure on the immune system to function properly.
I would like to share with you the following infographic that gives you some statistical data related to thyroid disease, list of hypothyroid symptoms, current treatments and how to heal thyroid with foods.
Here is where nutrition and how to heal thyroid with foods come in: a tailor-made diet that focuses on restoring the balance of the digestive tract and detoxifying the body can produce incredible turn-around in the human body.
This means once we change the way we eat, the digestive tract recovers, the immune system stabilizes and the attack on the thyroid seizes. The thyroid gets a chance to revive itself (the degree and speed depend on the person’s health history) and by doing so the symptoms subside or completely go away.
This is the approach we stand for – a protocol that addresses the root cause of your thyroid condition. Synthroid, methimazole and radioactive treatments do NOT address the root of thyroid problems. Food does. Give it a chance. It’s well worth it.
