Hashimoto's Disease Uncovered
Conventional medicine defines Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Hashimoto's disease as an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the immune system turns against the body's own tissues. In patients with Hashimoto's, the immune system attacks the thyroid. As with many medical illnesses, traditional medicine is still in the dark. Conventional medicine states that the exact cause of Hashimoto's is not known, but many factors such as genetics, hormone imbalance, excessive iodine, and radiation exposure are believed to play an initiating role.
In reality, why would the immune system of a healthy body attack itself for no apparent reason? The answer is simple. There is a factor(s) within the thyroid gland that should not be there. That is why the body's immune system attacks the organ. A perfect case in point was my own daughter. Lori developed Hashimoto's disease approximately four months after she gave birth to her daughter. Her endocrinologist wanted to put her on a drug Tapazole (methimazole) to stop her thyroid from making too much thyroid hormone. My daughter ask me what she should do. I told her not to take the drug because it was not addressing the underlying cause. My daughter told her endocrinologist that her father was going to treat her with alternative methods. The physician replied that alternative therapies do not work.
A little back round information will help you understand the basis for my daughter's disease. In the 1990's, Lori missed her senior year of high school due to chronic fatigue. After a half dozen physician visits, a diagnosis of Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) was made. Fortunately we found a homeopathic medical doctor who resolved my daughter's Hashimoto's disease using homeopathic remedies.
After 48 plus years of clinical practice, I have come to understand that once we become infected with a pathogen it never totally leaves the body. When your immune system is healthy it keeps the pathogen under control with no clinical symptoms. Fast forward to 2008, Lori gave birth to our grand daughter. After four months of night feeding and diaper changes her immune system became weak and she developed Hashimoto's disease. Using a Quantum Energy Technique, I diagnosed that she had Epstein Barr Virus in her thyroid. Testing various immune boosting nutrients revealed that Noni and ionic silver were the two remedies that tested the strongest against her EBV. Also I lent her a frequency device to help destroy the EBV. Three months later Lori's Hashimoto's Disease "disappeared." Also there was absolutely no interest on the part of her endocrinologist to find out how I resolve her autoimmune disease.
It is my professional opinion the label of autoimmune disease is just another medical narrative to cover-up their ignorance of how the body really works.
