Hashimoto’s is a form of autoimmune thyroiditis, which I have found responds really well to hypothalamic balancing. I use both Genesis Gold® and extra Sacred Seven® (which lowers the autoimmune antibodies way faster than suppressing the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis with high dose thyroid replacement therapy). The combination plus diet and lifestyle management helps to return the thyroid to normal function.
Some patients may need thyroid hormone to supplement their low thyroid production, but I prescribe a non-synthetic thyroid hormone as a way to keep communication open between the hypothalamus, pituitary, and thyroid so that they can eventually make their own thyroid hormone. Genesis Gold® supports thyroid function as well as adrenal function and increased glucose metabolism, which are also affected by the autoimmunity. It’s complicated, but optimizing biochemistry is my playground.
You can take Genesis Gold® with thyroid hormone replacement. As your neuro-immune-endocrine system comes into balance, you may need less thyroid replacement, so have your levels checked about six months after starting Genesis Gold®.
I like to get to the root cause of my patient’s dis-ease not just to arrest the symptom. They are rarely born ill, but rather acquire their conditions through environmental exposure and poor lifestyle choices. Everyone can heal, they just need to know how.
