Hypothyroidism treated with prescription thyroid hormones is rarely successful. There are numerous reasons why the thyroid is under active including a sluggish pituitary gland, poor gut function, and immune dysregulation. It would surprise most people to know the most common
cause of Hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s Disease, an Autoimmune Disorder that destroys the thyroid. This means that a person’s immune system against foreign invaders tagged its own tissue for termination. Sadly, the traditional medical system doesn’t test for autoimmunity because the only treatment (steroids) is worse than the disease. So the thyroid is treated symptomatically to temporarily reduce symptoms while the autoimmune attack continues to destroy the thyroid. Nutritionally supporting the thyroid is important because many body systems can become impaired due to poor thyroid function.

If you have wondered if chiropractic neurology and functional medicine can help you, see a chiropractor or chiropractors. Better yet, do both and see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself, Dr. Scott Brown.
