Hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Wilson’s thyroid syndrome, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disease – all of these conditions can be supported naturally. Thyroid conditions are seen more and more frequently lately and can have profound effects on mood, energy, weight, immune system function, and general well-being. It is important to first accurately diagnose the type of thyroid disorder so that it can be treated appropriately. For example, Wilson’s thyroid syndrome and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis are both hypo-thyroid conditions, but since they stem from very different roots, the treatments would differ also. In Wilson’s thyroid syndrome, a condition often related to adrenal fatigue and prolonged stress, the adrenal system must be treated in conjunction with the thyroid. With Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, on the other hand, we must look at the body from an autoimmune perspective, where the cause may be related to your gastrointestinal health. Thyroid conditions are also common after childbirth in the postpartum period and may be related to postpartum depression or ‘baby blues’. Thyroid activity also commonly changes at menopause and can be responsible for many of the unpleasant symptoms such as weight gain and depression.
