Tiredness, water retention, a slowed metabolism, hair loss and co. are usually the symptoms that accompany Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. This autoimmune disease is often confused with hypothyroidism. It is important that your doctor or therapist has a closer look. Because the differences or symptoms between “Hashi” or Hashimoto Thyroiditis and hypothyroidism are considerable. At the same time it makes sense that you inform yourself in detail about the causes of the Hashimoto disease. This is a rather complex topic, which certainly raises many questions. And here are the answers:
2) Another cause of Hashimoto thyroiditis is a possible infection in the thyroid cells. This can be caused by Borrelia bacteria and numerous other bacteria and viruses, especially EBV. The thyroid gland is attacked by your body’s own immune system. With the consequence that it destroys itself sooner or later. It is therefore essential that you have yourself examined for possible viruses, bacteria and germs, preferably with the ART method according to Dr. Klinghardt.
3) It is often shown that a weakness of the adrenal gland can be a trigger for “Hashi”. Experience shows that frequent food sins or an unhealthy lifestyle, stress or mental strain over a longer period of time are to blame for this malfunction or underfunction of the adrenal gland or the adrenal cortex. Chronic lack of sleep or signs of fatigue or exhaustion or too much coffee and alcohol also damage your adrenal cortex in the long term and thus promote the risk of Hashimoto.
4) Assuming that your insulin receptors no longer function properly, the risk of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis increases. If your insulin receptors are permanently stressed by the consumption of too many animal fats or vegetable oils, insulin resistance will result. This is considered one of the precursors of the dreaded diabetes disease – and thus a trigger for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Instead of continuing to rely on “dangerous” isolated vegetable oils and animal fats, you should integrate more of the original sources of fatty acids such as olives or avocados, nuts and seeds into your daily diet. #highcarblowfat
5) More and more people today suffer from food intolerance. Here we are mainly talking about animal milk products and gluten. Antibodies are produced in the intestines, which can lead to symptoms of various kinds. As a result, the risk of Hashimoto’s disease can increase rapidly. This makes it all the more important that you focus more on a healthy diet instead of possibly continuing to follow old eating habits.
6) If you come “to daylight” too seldom, because you spend too much time in the office, this could in the long term result in a vitamin D deficiency. A vitamin D deficiency is also present when the body is unable to absorb the essential vitamin in adequate quantities due to a vitamin D receptor problem. The function of the T-Reg cells is drastically reduced – as is the activity of your thyroid gland. Even 5,000 units of the vitamin per day can help to improve your health. It is therefore essential to have your personal vitamin D level checked by a doctor you trust.
7) Women who have already been pregnant are also frequently affected by Hashimoto’s disease. Why? Because they still have the stem cells from their embryo inside them. Basically a “plus” for the organs in which there might be a deficiency. The “catch”, however, is that these embryonic stem cells consist of a component of the father and one of the mother. If there is a local blockade – for example in the form of resentment, quarrelling etc. against the father of the child, the body “defends” itself against the “paternal cells”. If you feel addressed, it can be helpful to be at peace with the child’s father or to have an appropriate psychokinesiological or systemic treatment.
