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.

Previously on this blog I explained the number one cause of hypothyroidism in the United States is an autoimmune thyroid condition. I also explained some of the mechanics about how the immune system becomes unbalanced and attacks the thyroid or other body parts. Further explanation is warranted. Far too many people are suffering with afflictions and they need help. Perhaps this article will help them find answers.
Having undiagnosed autoimmune thyroid or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is one of the key reasons why it’s common for women and men to continue suffering with stubborn thyroid problems. Auto Immune Thyroid or Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is the number one cause of hypothyroid symptoms in the United States.
Thanks to Dr. Robert E. Zee, B.S., Eng., D.C. for the following blog post, which I repost here with his permission. I find it explains the concept of why the immune system gets out of balance. As you might expect, I recommend you always attempt to get to the bottom of a health challenge, rather that treating just the symptoms or outward signs. That is what constitutes true heatlth care.
