what the doctor didn’t tell you – sluggish thyroid
Many medical doctors often failed to look at the high-level thyroid antibodies in the thyroid test from my experiences. The patient could be suffering from autoimmune Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT).
HT is associated with many diseases you never though of – panic disorder, anxiety, sleep apnea, polycystic ovarian syndrome, chronic hives, vitiligo, psoriasis, high cholesterol (the reason why need to solve root cause rather than stop liver producing cholesterol with a statin), stroke, infertility, Rheumatoid, lupus, spinal disc degeneration (why I have Phyto-Zest), etc.
From my naturopathic perspective, I don’t look at individual readings and conclude. For example, I can tell whether the person has high blood viscosity – a very high-risk factor for stroke and heart attack from a blood test.
Take a look at this example. The patient consulted with me last December, and her thyroid antibodies dropped up to 70% after receiving a protocol of Western herbs and nutritional medicine. The antibodies are often not tested, and you wonder why you felt very sluggish, tired, put on weight, bloating, etc.
