Hello beautiful warrior!
Today I want to go over something very important, and it's probably something that no one has ever told you about. We're going to talk about the beautiful thyroid. This is a gland that sits right in the middle of your neck and your throat. If you have a lot of swelling here and you have issues with energy, bloating, your hair falling out, depression, digestion, sleep, sex drive, fertility or dry skin, among so many other things, you may have a thyroid condition.
Most doctors send you for a blood test to measure your TSH levels but your TSH is not the only important measure to get a good idea of your thyroid hormonal health. Believe it or not, your doctor has been totally misinformed and inappropriately trained, simply in the interest of making money for a drug called Synthroid. Heard of it? It's a T4-only medication that is prescribed to women when their thyroid hormone is out of range. If it's out of range and you're hypothyroid, which means that not enough thyroid hormone is getting into the cells. So, your number may be high and let's say maybe you're like a five, and your doctor's like, “Whoa, that's really high, we have to get you more.” But it's only high because the brain is telling the body, the thyroid in particular, to make more of it because the thyroid hormone isn't getting converted appropriately and isn't getting into the cell.
So this is the question that I get a lot…
“Why is it hypo (hypothryoidism) when my number's high?”
And here’s the reason why…It just means that your body's making a normal amount of thyroid hormone but not enough of it's getting into the cells. This is very important. It's not just what we make, which is what these blood tests are, it's what gets into the cells so our body can use it. What good is anything unless it can get into the door, right?
I have worked with thousands of women all around the world to heal their hormones and all of the diseases associated with hormones, simply by looking deeper into why do we not feel amazing on a daily basis. So…
“Why am I so tired”
It’s the number one question I get. I know for sure that in the allopathic world, which is the Western medicine world in America and also being taught in Australia and U.K., the doctors are not trained to look farther into the root cause of the issue of why your hormones are out of whack. You get a diagnosis, “Oh, you have hypothyroidism, here's a drug.” But why are we not asking the question why? I'm here to encourage you to start asking the question why. Because no one's ever taught you that either.
I also must note, since we’re on the topic of the doctor simply prescribing you drugs, that Synthroid has a ton of negative side effects. One of the most common ones I see is heart palpitations and feeling wired but tired. The brain is super wired, but the body's super tired. Another side effect is the inability to build muscle and then hair loss. It’s so common.
So you guys are going to get pumped full of Synthroid until you get to the root cause issue of why you have hypothyroidism.
There are 3 Common Reasons your thyroid Levels (TSH, T4 AND T3) are out of range, we will talk about in this article:
- Autoimmune disease
- Hidden Viruses
#1 ROOT CAUSE – AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASE
95% of women who have hypothyroidism, is caused by an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto's.
Ok but what is that? What does an autoimmune disease even mean?
An autoimmune disease simply means that the body gets confused. The immune system sees that there's something to attack and remove from the body and it accidentally attacks our own organs.
Autoimmune disease is currently the fastest growing disease in America, the third leading cause of death and can be rooted in a lot of things.
- TOXICITY – Toxicity from high exposure to heavy metals and toxic foods like gluten and many more could be a contributing factor to creating autoimmune disease.
- GENETICS (OR NOT) – Also causing autoimmune disease is a genetic predisposition, maybe one of your parents, or both, or your grandparents had some sort of autoimmune disease. Or perhaps NO one in your family has it, yet your genetics aren’t acting in your favor – ie good genes acting bad.
- LEAKY GUT – Another factor, you have a leaky gut which is present in pretty much every American and everyone around the world at this point because chemicals and the inhaling chemicals is what causes leaky gut. As well as over-the-counter drugs as well as pseudo/GMO aka Franken foods, packaged foods, anything that's not native to Mother Nature which we're pretty much eating a processed food diet these days.
Oh, and need I mention EMOTIONAL STRESS as well? All contributing factors to autoimmune disease.
Currently, there is no drug to give you to get rid of your autoimmune disease.
If they give you a drug to fix the T4 issue, then there would probably be another drug that they could prescribe you after that because Synthroid has so many side effects. Then the next thing you know they're going to give you another drug and another and the vicious cycle continues. The average thyroid sufferer that I work with has been seeing doctors for over 10 years, has seen over 15 practitioners and is on over five medications, has tried or is still currently on over 10 different supplements and still feels nowhere near what she wants to feel. Often constipated, often exhausted, just totally frustrated and running out of time and money.
Nobody really understands autoimmune disease in the medical community…
…but we do in the functional medicine space, and I've been trained for this. I reversed my own autoimmune disease because of the lab testing that we do, which is not just a blood test. And even still, the blood test that the doctors run, they don't look for all this other stuff. So what is the other stuff?
#2 ROOT CAUSE – VIRUSES
There is something that you guys may have heard of, and it's called the kissing disease. It's also called Mono. On a lab test, it’s officially known as Epstein-Barr.
And the best way I could describe it is like when you get sick for two weeks at a time and you have this awful, nasty cold that won't go away and sometimes you feel like you got hit by a bus. You probably got it when you were in college 'cause you know, when we're in college we get drunk and we make out with random people. And then we're like, “Oh, man, I got real sick,” and then we're eating like crap and we're drinking and we're working, maybe even smoking, doing recreational drugs, and we're also studying for 12 hours a day and we've got midterms and full-terms and sideways-terms and terms of … endearment, which is why we get Mono.
If you’ve had Mono or Epstein Barr at any point in your life or maybe you didn't know you had Mono but you've been sick like you had a cold for two weeks that felt really debilitating and you were just in bed for a long time, you have probably had this virus in your body somewhere, somehow. 95% of us plus have had this disease, this virus, somewhere in the body.
Ok so now what happens is that let's say you had it when you were 18. Now you're 30 or 40, and you're like, “Oh my God, I'm always sick.” Or you get the flu often, right? Your immune system is just shot or you're shot too, right? What happens is that this virus is woken back up again.
Viruses, like EBV are like a sleeping dragon… stress of any kind will wake it back up.
Chemical stress, emotional stress, physical stress, not enough sleep, too many arguments, working too much; all of these things awaken the beast that we call a virus.
So when this viruses awakens, of course, it lives in the thyroid gland and in the thyroid it starts spitting out all kinds of problems, all kinds of trouble and that’s when you might see antibodies on a blood test. This is not something that your doctor is going to run for you. You may have to arm wrestle them in order to even have them run antibodies and even if you find out that you have antibodies, which is the root cause issue of hypothyroidism, they're not going to know what to do with you. They have no idea how to treat it.
#3 ROOT CAUSE – PARASITES
When I see someone who has an Epstein-Barr virus plus a highly active virus or maybe recently in the past and has out-of-range thyroid hormone figures on the blood test then I can almost guarantee that you probably have some sort of parasite infection as well, which is typically Blastocystic Hominis.
I had all of these things, at one point. I had every single one of these things and I've worked for the last six years to create a protocol on how to reverse all of it. Your doctor has no clue about this stuff. I work with nurses and I've worked with them to get rid of their thyroid disease and to help them understand the root cause issues that were going on in their tissues and they've brought that information to their doctors in the clinics that they work in and these doctors are like, “Whoa, I never knew this stuff.” Some of these doctors are leaving their practices because they're breaking up with modern medicine.
I even wrote an e-book about this because it's so important for everyone to understand the root cause of our suffering instead of just putting a band-aid on these symptoms with drugs which is only going to make things worse. And you're going to lose time and money money. You're going to end up like a lot of my clients who end up spending $15,000, $20,000, $30,000, $50,000, $100,000 in medical bills and still don't get the results they want and need.
Here’s the good news…
I can help you. I can run tests and understand these tests. I work with women all around the world to understand these things to see the big picture and then work with them based on getting the right nutrients and keep the right diet, lifestyle and mindset to get the life and the body and the thyroid hormone numbers that they desire.
So just imagine putting all of this to rest once and for all, getting off of the medications, getting rid of the symptoms, and being able to chase your dreams instead of your diseases and the symptoms chasing you. It's time to turn your disease into dreams so that you can finally have the energy, the body, and the life that you absolutely deserve.
Just remember, every issue is a hormonal one.
