Hashimoto's Disease Treatment Brisbane
Natural Hashimoto's treatment
Whilst the obvious treatment for someone with low thyroid hormones due to Hashimoto's disease is to replace the hormones, there are also many other natural therapies that can be used to complement and in most cases improve on this. As in all naturopathy, our view is to start with working out exactly what the underlying causes are and work at treating these. In the case of Hashimoto disease, the low hormones are merely the symptoms of an underlying autoimmune disease.
So doesn't it make sense to work at improving your overall autoimmune system?

The Hashimoto disease diet
As Hashimoto's disease is an autoimmune disorder and a large part of your autoimmune system is in your gut, it makes sense to improve your overall gut health. On the flip-side, as thyroid hormones help protect the intestinal lining, if you suffer from low levels you most likely also suffer from intestinal permeability (or leaky gut). So this is where a good hyperthyroidism diet comes in.
The first thing you need to consider for your Hashimoto disease diet is becoming gluten-free. The molecular structure of gluten closely resembles that of the thyroid gland. So when gluten enters your bloodstream through a leaky gut, your autoimmune antibodies tag it for removal. Unfortunately, when it launches an attack, it also does on your thyroid due to the similarities. This immune response can last up to 6 months.
Once you've removed the gluten, you then need to work at repairing your overall intestinal lining and gut health. This may mean reducing or giving up other types of food, like grains, beans, dairy, eggs, nuts, yeast etc. As you can imagine, working out what foods you should cut back as well what you should replace them with to ensure a balanced diet can be daunting.
