Well, I've expected this to happen.
Hashimoto's is a disorder of the thyroid gland. It is considered to be an autoimmune disorder. The body gradually destroys its own thyroid gland. It affects energy, weight gain, bowel dysfunction and attitude. I've read several articles that have been linking Hashimoto's to gluten sensitivity. Gluten sensitivity?? Could autoimmune disorders be linked to one of the most inflammatory molecules in our diets (gluten)? Of course. It's just a matter of time before scientists link many autoimmune disorders to inflammatory foods.
However, because of this link, can we undo an autoimmune disease? I think, "Why not?" I've been treating a woman with Disembarkment Syndrome (a specific type of vertigo). She also has had Hashimoto's for years. I've been treating her for approximately 3 months. She had recent blood work done and said her thyroid hormones were now 3 times normal! She bubbled, "My thyroid disorder is in remission!" I'm so thankful. Not only is her vertigo 60% improved, but her autoimmune disease is being corrected. Isn't the body amazing?
When I start treating a patient, I take them off of gluten. I was hoping that someone soon would have positive changes in their thyroid hormones because of a decrease in inflammation in their body. I expect this will happen more and more!
