We’re, going to talk about Hashimoto’s and joint pain, so Hashimoto’s and joint pain, heart and joint pain. I mean they go together or you know frequently and and so Hashimoto’s. Hopefully there’s, not the first time.
You’re watching this, but if you are Hashimoto some unit a con, a thyroid autoimmunity immune inflammation on the thyroid. If you’re, not familiar with Hashimoto’s, and what it is that I mean we, we must have a couple hundred hours on that on powerhealthtalk.com
com. You can just look up, Hashimoto’s, and and and we talk about the full breadth of Hashimoto’s, which is quite expansive, so how she matters is an autoimmune attack on your thyroid. When you get an autoimmune attack on your thyroid.
Lots of things happen because your thyroid controls every single metabolic process in your body, even though it’s closely related to energy and metabolism, and it has a receptor site and every single for there’s, a receptor site and every single Cell in the body for for thyroid hormone, it’s, a create energy and that energy, in turn, that it creates in your cells, runs everything.
Okay, so it’s, not running everything, a lot of things slow down and you’re gonna say: oh here he goes again. He’s. Just gonna tell me how everything’s slowed down. So I’m gonna be a little bit more. It’s.
Gon na be a little different on this because, because Hashimoto’s is is, is you know it’s? A thyroid problem immune system is attacking the thyroid. There’s, a lot of inflammation involved, a lot of inflammation and causing immune systems to flare up and then attack the thyroid.
A lot of things happen when that happens. For example, when you get the thyroid attacked, one of the things that happens is you attack the thyroid and you damaged tissue. Well, this tissue doesn’t just disintegrate into thin air.
This tissue goes into your system and with that tissue going into your system, you get you get a lot of thyroid hormone going into your system because it’s in that tissue. So you not only can get anxiety and you cannot audien jitters and panic the label.
You can get paying you because that isn’t highly inflammatory response and it’s. Kind of interesting because thyroid hormone in and of itself also is the thyroid hormone itself. T4 and t3 are steroids and they they so they dampen inflammatory responses.
They dampen. What’s called oxidative responses. You know if AXA Dacian is is like wear and tear on your system, inflammatory responses or everything that happens, creates an inflammatory response. So your thyroid hormone works towards that you start destroying that that starts to become not a mechanism.
It’s, not happening real. Well now we go to joint pain. What causes joint pain, so joint pain is interesting because joint pain, it can be. It can be something directly related to your joint that the Hashimoto ‘
S turns on so, for example, there is a now a significant component and significant understanding of of the relationship between rheumatoid arthritis and Hashimoto’s. They’re. Both autoimmune conditions, you flare-up Hashimoto’s; that’s, going to flare up; inflammatory responses that’s, going to decrease; ah yeah that’s, going to decrease our increase.
Oxidative stress that’s, going to set off your rheumatoid arthritis. So it can be that the Hashimoto ‘ S indirectly can alter gut function and there are bacteria in your gut that when they’re broken down and they get out, they’re called lipopolysaccharides.
They can create an inflammatory response, virtually almost anyplace in your body, and I think those are one of the most common one of those common causes of joint pain. Joints for some reason have metabolites and they have different chemicals, that look tasty to the flared up immune system and and and and this some that isn’t fully understood completely come fully.
Yet I just read some articles on on this. Just a couple of weeks ago, but there is an understanding that when that inflammatory response goes up and and the thyroid hormones are going up and the inflammation to the thyroid hormones starts going up there’s, something called molecular mimicry and so there so That the when, when the molecules when the molecules on the thyroid get attacked for some reason, joints get attacked the next thing and also and also ligaments gonna get get attacked a lot of times.
People come in here and they have like bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and they’re, not particularly hard. You know it’s not like they’re, doing jackhammers all day or typing all day, and it’s. Usually that the thyroid hormone has attacked the thyroid and these ligaments.
At the same time, people come in with thoracic outlet syndrome. I have talked to one yesterday and, and they got a pain that goes in her neck down their arm into there and they and they’ve, been to the chiropractor and they’ve had MRIs and everything’s normal.
It’s, their Hashimoto’s. It’s, the same thing with the joints. The inflammatory response from there has a an affinity to attack joints and particularly if your joint pain comes and goes, and you have Hashimoto’s and there’s, a good chance that the same thing as causing your Hashimoto’S is causing joint pains and I have a strong feeling that there’s, probably a connection that provides even more clarity than what I’m telling you, because these are things that I’ve just written over the last Two or three weeks and and and I’ve – see you here every day I see here.
If I don’t see here every day I see her every week. I see her all the time I mean it is very much one of the most common symptoms that people come in with who have Hashimoto’s. Hashimoto ‘ S is really you know you, you have leaky gut.
You have Hashimoto’s, you’re, not on thyroid hormone replacement therapy and you get a high TSH and you’re, not on thyroid hormone places. I’m in therapy. It’s, hard to fix the leaky gut for those of you or anti hormone replacement therapy, and then you had that leaky gut boom.
You get all those bacteria that that get out of there. You get the you get the endotoxins they’re, called those bacteria break down their cell walls, get out it’s, Katie bar the door. You can get everything, but I think one of the most common things that that mechanism causes is the joint pain itself, because because I’ve seen it because I’ve seen it time’s good part.
Is you get down with you, get the inflammation down the atashi motor is down and the large percentage of the time that joint pain is going to resolve. You
