Hashimoto in Men: How to heal with the best treatment
Hypothyroidism is a more common disease that affects women, but there are also men who can present thyroid disease.
And there are things I wished I knew before when I was early tagged with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Unfortunately, the conventional medical treatment for healing Hashimoto is to take thyroid hormone pills, which is not the only answer for this autoimmune disease that must be seen with a holistic view in order to find true, real healing.
Following up, I will share the information that mostly by hard experiences I have learned of what works and what doesn’t work as a treatment of Hashimoto in men.
What is Hashimoto’s disease?
Overall, Hashimoto’s an autoimmune disease, and not necessarily a thyroid disease as some doctors will make you think.
The problem is not based in the thyroid gland. There are root causes that eventually damaged the thyroid gland and as result caused the hormonal imbalance.
The goal for true healing is to find those root causes and cut them out.
The immune system is the one out of control and it is one’s work to find out why, and take the steps to recover full body balance in order to restore a healthier status.
Autoimmune disorders are said to have no cure, but honestly, after taking the right steps to heal Hashimoto, I can say that one can actually live without Hashimoto symptoms and have a normal and fulfilled life.
Of course, there will be ups and downs, but one who has to make conscious decisions so that Hashimoto is no longer considered a stone in the road.
Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto Symptoms in Men
There are different types of Hashimoto symptoms that might appear in men.
One starts having hypothyroidism symptoms before being diagnosed as Hashimoto thyroiditis by a healthcare provider.
Usually, the symptoms are the same for both Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto.
Here is a list of some of the Hashimoto Symptoms.
And it will vary from man to man the Hashimoto symptoms.
What causes Hashimoto’s disease?
So, as I started to investigate more about Hashimoto, I learned that the root causes are actually the triggers of the health imbalance.
There is not only one answer to find out what causes Hashimoto.
As we are all unique in body, there might be different reasons why the body reacted with an autoimmune disease.
But mainly, I say that the use of antibiotics is one of the main reasons that the gut is becoming leaking.
Leaky gut is when the gut lining gets damaged, and since the lining is not fully protecting the gut, there will be food molecules and toxins that will get inside the blood vessels.
This gives the note to start mentioning the effect of gluten in the body.
Gluten has a protein called gliadin, which when it goes into the bloodstream, the immune system will target it and attack it. SInce it is considered as a foreigner agent, it is normal to defend the body against it.
But, since the thyroid gland has a similar structure as gliadin, then the immune response is to attack as well the thyroid gland. At least that’s what science says.
So gluten is one cause of Hashimoto? Well, partially.
An unhealthy lifestyle, stress factors, processed foods, high amounts of sugar, nutritional deficiencies, emotional factors and a lack of spiritual practice will be causes of disease in humans.
The thing with Hashimoto is that it is commonly said that it is also a communication disease, and those who struggle with communicating their emotions eventually show thyroid disease.
So this is why I am also using this website to express myself and help other Hashimoto Warriors to find their own personal healing path, because I know how frustrating it can be to not know exactly what is going wrong even if you have a considered healthy lifestyle.
Believe me, we sometimes do things that can be considered healthy, until we find out the paradigm which must be changed.
