I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s a year and a half ago. I am not taking any meds as my sypmtoms (mainly issues with my cycle) do not hinder me too much (yet). I have been researching the condition and possible solutions ever since. My TSH and fT4 have improved, however my thyroid antibodies have increased from >600 to >1000 kU/L (normal range is <34).
I am now looking for ways to reduce the antibodies by taking away the cause, for example by tackling my estrogen dominance. Has anybody managed to do this successfully? I am living in the Netherlands and am finding it difficult to get medical support with this.September 6, 2013 at 10:08 am #12382The Real AmyModerator
Someone on these forums was recently saying vitamin E and selenium are critical, and were working for her. I can’t remember which thread it was, but you might want to look into it.September 7, 2013 at 2:10 pm #12416LiandaModerator
Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune disease where your body is attacking your thyroid gland. It’s not just about getting your improvement in your T4-T3; that’s just how the system works when it’s functioning. But it won’t stop your body from attacking your thyroid gland.
There are no definitive answers about how to cure autoimmune diseases. However, being a Mind/Emotion/Body guide, I would encourage you to consider whether an belief in your mind, perhaps from childhood on, has made you feel like your body is “the enemy”. (this can be the result of abuse, trauma, or neglect).
Many prominent writers, such as Louise Hay, Carolyn Myss, and others help you to delve into those hidden, and not so attitudes.
I use EFT meridian tapping to help release those subconscious thoughts and feelings. Here’s where you can find out more information:http://www.heartfelt-stress-relief.com/EFTSeptember 8, 2013 at 6:43 am #12463TopolinaParticipant
Thank you both for the replies. I will look in to this. I can’t think of any reasons why my body would see itself as the enemy and certainly have not been abused or neglected. However, as a child/teen I did not always feel confident in social situations and was very focussed on weight and appearance to boost my self-esteem. I have (at least on a conscious level) managed to let go of these beliefs as I grew older and more confident, but maybe years of this kind of thinking have contributed to my health issues.September 12, 2013 at 6:32 pm #12584
