Natural MD Radio: Hashimoto’s – What Is It Trying to Tell You?

Many people in the medical field treat only a disease – not the person. They look at the symptoms, tell you what you have, and move forward with known treatments for that condition. But what if we looked deeper at what was really causing the symptoms? Today I’m sharing six things Hashimoto’s might be trying to tell us. When our bodies are struggling with symptoms, it’s not always as simple as treating a disease. We have to look at what is truly happening in our lives and bodies, to bring the whole into health again.


6 Things Hashimoto's is Trying to Tell Us:

    1. Our body thinks there's an emergency
    2. We need more rest
    3. We are allowed to say no and hit the pause button
    4. Our immune systems are confused
    5. We are chronically exposed to environmental toxins
    6. Our voices deserve to be heard 

 Show Notes

  • What our symptoms are saying

It is ironic that you listed triggers for Hashimoto's because in 2008 my soon to be husband was in an auto accident that resulted in 6 back surgeries. Right before the first surgery we got married. The Dr. was suppose to fix him with spinal fusion and instead disabled him permanently. Then in January 2012 I was in an accident via taxi in NYC and that accident herniated 3 disc's in my neck and herniated 3 disc's in my back. June 2012 in that same year I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's.

Like many women, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's after the birth of my first baby. I had a baby who didn't sleep the first two years of her life and had little outside support. Pregnancy and postpartum were both very stressful. As I was listening to this, I was thinking. How much money could we save in healthcare if we actually cared for women after the birth of their babies and alleviated some of the stress of early parenting? Paid leave, midwives who do home checks to care for women and their babies, access to good breastfeeding support, doulas... We are so horrible to women postpartum. No wonder pregnancy is known to trigger autoimmune conditions!

    Leah, I couldn't agree with you more about providing home postpartum support! I envision a world where it is so!
