Something I’ve, been actually studying a little bit more lately, it’s, a topic on which are a lot of different opinions as to when you do it and why you do it so to understand that you need to understand.
Hashimoto’s for those who you have not seen any of these videos. Hashimoto’s is an immune attack on your thyroid. It’s number one cause of hypothyroidism and people get hypothyroid symptoms. Overweight fatigue can’t sleep bowels with the backing up, constipation dry skin on the dry skin, usually on the shins you can have puffing in the face dry mouth.
You can have a dry mouth. You can have dry eye, so it’s, ten things that you get with the hypothyroid aspect of it and then eventually you start to develop hyperthyroidism from the immune system, attacking it as immune system attacking it.
You destroy tissue there’s. The Cliff Notes version use the soy to destroy tissue, it’s, vomits out a bunch of thyroid hormone and you can get anxiety and you can get heart palpitations for no reason at all in tremors and and night sweats.
So you a bunch of more hyper symptom so that’s. Kind of you know: Hashimoto’s, and so the point is it’s. It’s, actually a thyroid problem first and then it’s, a autoimmune problem. Actually, I would say it’s, actually an autoimmune problem.
First then, I thyroid problems. Second, so basically, what happens with that patient? Is they go to the endocrinologist endocrinologist today says yeah, I feel my toes, but it really doesn’t change. Initial treatment, most endocrinologist are gonna.
Look at your normal thyroid panel thyroid stimulating hormone t3, t4 and and not run a full panel, and then they’re, going to give you tyroid hormone, and maybe it gives you a little bit of a brief. You know break and you feel a little better for a little time, but as long as this is going on as long as you’re getting attacked it’s not going to work for a lot of people, and so in those Folks, for some it doesn’t work.
There is a there there’s, a second and a third option, and this in a second and or depending on who you’re talking to is radiation and/or surgery. So we’re talking about radiation today, so radiating a thyroid for me would be a third option just for okay, but ratings already basically take a pill.
There’s. Uh there’s radioactive iodine it something that I really can’t. Imagine I would want in my body but but but that’s, how you do it and then they dosed, hopefully they dose up enough to where your thyroid dies.
Okay, radioactive iodine, kills your your your thyroid radiation, couch or thyroid. So so now we have no thyroid, and the question usually is alright. I don’t have a thyroid. Now there’s. Now they’re telling me.
I’m, going to go into a hypothyroid period and then they’re, going to control it with the medication. Now I’ve seen a couple. I’ll, probably a few hundred in these cases. Okay and over a period of time, I’ve, been doing this, so obviously that’s, not always true.
I don’t know what the percentages of people for whom that doesn’t work, but it’s enough to where I’ve seen several hundred of these myself. So so what happens? A couple of things happen: first of all, it’s, a thyroid problem that is being attacked by an immune system, and you’re, going to be in problems.
So now the thyroid is gone so that problem in theory is gone, and I say in theory because sometimes they don’t, give you enough iodine and sometimes the thyroid doesn’t completely die, and you may not find that out.
For months or years later, why, and you’re still having this symptom, so that’s. One reason that you’re still having the symptoms. Another reason is because the immune response is still there. Now let’s say you have an immune response and they and they measure these immune responses by measuring something called your thyroid.
Peroxidase enzymes TPO antibodies. If you’ve been watching this, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t been watching, this then check out one of our videos on Hashimoto’s, and so so this these antibodies.
Okay, that may be let’s say they’re at 500 and they take your thyroid out. The antibodies don’t just go away, these antibodies were created to attack, thyroid tissue, and, and so there’s, a number of things going on there.
First of all that the antibodies might go from 500 to 200 or they might go from 500 to 50, but there are still antibodies. They’re, taking taking instructions from your immune system to attack thyroid tissue.
Now, if the thyroid tissue, hasn’t completely been hasn’t been completely destroyed by the iodine because they didn’t use enough. You’re still going to get an attack here over the years. I have been told – and I’ve – read that on occasion there they don’t get the thyroid tissue out.
I’ve, read that that happens on more than just occasion from some sources. Okay, so again, if you don’t get all the thyroid tissue out, you still have thyroid antibodies, even though they may come down.
They’re, still attacking they’re, still attacking they’re still attacking and the other uniqueness of Hashimoto’s. Is you motors has a the reason you get such a wide variety of symptoms from Hashimoto’s says because Hashimoto’s has a communication with with so many other tissues in your body.
So if you get an immune attack on your thyroid, you might get an immune attack on your intestines. Every time you eat a food sensitivity. If you have an attack on your thyroid every time you eat a food sensing which flares up which flares up autoimmunity.
You might get an attack on your cerebellum. These are called molecular mimicry. It’s, a long that story, and I want to keep this too long, but the bottom line is that you can get your thyroid attacked your intestines attacked and your in your cerebellum attack at the same time, high rates going on, but these aren’t, so now they’re, getting attacked still and you’re.
Getting the same symptoms yeah I got one. Let’s. Just say you got all your thyroid out. You’re still getting attacks here. You get attack on your and get attack on your ovaries. You’re, going to attack on your on your stomach, so you get autumn.
You have stratus symptoms, you get or you could. You could get an attack on your pancreas and you could be getting pleasure or something so that so the thyroid comes out. All the other ones are still there, and – and so you’re, still getting a substantial number of these of these symptoms.
Many of which are in the symptoms that I just got done talking about and and it’s even really more complex than that. If you really start digging down into the into the nano chemistry of this stuff, but but really that more or less covers the the general answer of I got my thyroid out and there they said.
I’m going in the hypothyroid. I’m thinking to levothyroxine. I’m. Taking your armor, I’m, taking whatever I’m. Taking it’s, not working like I just still have. I still have all the symptoms. Those are the reasons why you still have those symptoms.
