WHAT IS HASHIMOTOS?
" According to most information, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune thyroid disease based on a dysfunctional immune system in which your thyroid is being attacked by your immune system via antibodies, attempting to destroy your gland as if it’s some vile enemy. It may start out silently, but the attack will eventually cause an inflammation and gradual destruction of your thyroid gland and can go on for years with miserable side effects to match. It can also cause nodules or lumps. It may be the most common thyroid disease, especially with women. Gut problems can go along with Hashimotos disease, and should be addressed.
Another theory promoted by Dr. Alexander Haskell is the other way around: that the thyroid first becomes inflamed due to being hypo and the excess production of the TSH, which then leads to Hashimotos. What causes the inflammation? One reason might be low iodine, as well as poor levels of certain minerals such as selenium, zinc, and iron."
