Hashimoto’s Symptoms Overview

Feeling fatigued for no reason? Are you consistently cold? Have you been having gut issues? Do you have a growing waistline and thinning hair? If so, you may be afflicted with Hashimoto’s disease. What is Hashimotos? This disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes your immune system to create antibodies that wrongfully attack your thyroid gland. Symptoms of Hashimotos include:

  • Enlarged neck or presence of goiter, which may be the only early symptom
  • Difficulty concentrating or thinking
  • Dry skin
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Heavy or irregular periods
  • Intolerance to cold
  • Unexpected weight gain

When normally functioning, your thyroid gland, located in the neck, is responsible for producing hormones that regulate body temperature, heart rate, and metabolism. With Hashimoto’s disease, uncalled for antibodies attack your thyroid and disrupt this hormone production, resulting in the aforementioned symptoms. While T-4 hormone replacement therapy is a viable option for treatment, there are also a number of natural ways to heal thyroid issues that you can do on your own. Overcoming Hashimoto’s and learning how to heal thyroid issues naturally is not as difficult as you may think.

Can you reverse Hashimoto’s disease?

Can you reverse Hashimoto’s disease? While there is no concrete cure for Hashimoto’s, it is possible to heal your thyroid naturally and live life without any negative side effects or symptoms. The process of thyroid healing is not difficult, all it takes is commitment and the desire to live a healthier, better, and longer life. Through diet, lifestyle changes, and alternative therapies, you can learn how to heal your thyroid naturally and take back control of your life.

Understanding the role of diet and nutrition in healing the thyroid

Certain foods including cruciferous vegetables, soy, and gluten directly interfere with normal thyroid function. Understanding what foods negatively impact your thyroid is the first step to learning how to heal your thyroid naturally. Other foods, such as seafood, eggs, and leafy greens are great for thyroid health when consumed in the correct quantity. Additionally, your diet should have a balanced amount of iodine, selenium, and vitamins A and D. Learning how to eat with your thyroid in mind can do wonders when trying to heal thyroid naturally.

Lifestyle changes for reversing Hashimoto’s symptoms

Changing your lifestyle is also a crucial part of reversing the negative effects of Hashimoto’s disease. Regular exercise, stress management, and regulated sleep are all very important for reducing thyroid inflammation and supporting healthy thyroid function. It is also important you do your best to avoid environmental toxins when trying to promote thyroid health. This can be done by paying closer attention to ingredients in cleaning/beauty products, as well as by filtering your drinking water correctly. You don’t have to radically change your life when living with Hashimoto’s disease, you just need to be more aware.

Alternative therapies and complementary practices

Alternative therapies performed in conjunction with conventional medication can also be beneficial for people living with Hashimoto’s disease. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and homeopathy are just a few natural approaches that can help to improve thyroid function and reduce symptoms by addressing the root cause of the condition. It is important to work with qualified practitioners when seeking out alternative therapies, as they can help integrate these practices into your already existing treatment plan.
