Hashimoto's was the first disease recognized as an autoimmune disease. It was first described by the Japanese specialist Hakaru Hashimoto in Germany in 1912. Hashimoto's is also known as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or HT. In this autoimmune disorder the body produces an antibody that attacks the thyroid gland resulting in inflammation, and often decreased thyroid function (hypothyroidism).

Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC, Shelby Township, Macomb County Metro Detroit Area Doctor Shares How and Why Hypothyroid Symptoms Can Be Affected by Blood Sugar Levels
Let’s Take A Look At The Important Role Of Balanced Blood Sugar Levels And Your Low Thyroid Symptoms
Proper Blood Sugar levels are critical for anyone with low thyroid function. Normal blood glucose levels medically have a broad range of anywhere from 70 to 105. Functional or optimal blood glucose levels are 85 to 99. According to the American Diabetic Association, a blood sugar level reading of 106 to 126 is called, “Insulin resistance,” and anything above 127 is diabetes.
Despite enormous expenditures for health care in the United States, several life-impacting chronic conditions and diseases are on the rise. A large number of patients who visit my office with a chronic health chanllenge are found to have some type autoimmune basis for their health decline via specific testing.
Insomnia is a common complaint with the patients I see who have health challenges such as fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism symptoms, peripheral neuropathy and vertigo.
If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I have revealed the fact that the number-one cause of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune thyroid . Based on the number of medically managed hypothyroid patients who have sought my care for their numerous persistant health challenges, thyroid hormone replacement alone does not address the underlying cause of Hashimoto's (autoimmune thyroid). Too many patients who only utilize thyroid hormone replacement therapy may never feel the way they truly desire. It's a shame and that's why I am dedicated to helping patient's with autoimmune thyroid improve their health with my unique blend of natural methods.
I think you will agree with me that what you are about to read will make total sense and is a fantastic companion to my highly successful health restoration program for patients who suffer with chronic health challenges. Most of the patients I work with have undiagnosed autoimmune illness (like Hashimoto's) and out of control systemic inflammation. Through my health restoration programs, my patients almost universally lose significant weight without exercising, but they need a way to tone up and continue the weight loss as well as improve their fitness for a full and rewarding life.
