How to Cure Thyroid Permanently?

A diagnosis of thyroid problems inevitably comes with a disclaimer: thyroid issues will be with you for the rest of your life. There is no permanent solution.

Why do conventional doctors claim this? Even those who are highly skilled? Don't you want to know how to cure thyroid permanently?

Treatment of thyroid diseases based on hormone replacement only works as long as the tablets are taken. And it is assessed only as per laboratory reports. This does not guarantee that patients actually feel comfortable and free from symptoms.

We also label all thyroid disorders to be caused by faulty genes. It is important to understand that genes are not solely responsible for causing diseases. The environment we create inside our body determines exactly how the genes manifest.

With the incidence of chronic diseases including diabetes and raised blood pressure being on the rise, finding better solutions is the need of the hour.

Our aim at Jeevam Health is to treat the patient, not the disease. This includes making you feel healthy, happy and strong. How to cure thyroid permanently/

This is why we have devised a comprehensive treatment protocol which covers every aspect of your health.

What is addressed in thyroid treatment plans?

It is important to understand that hormone replacement is only one component of improving thyroid function. It is akin to putting out a fire, without knowing what started it.

If only hormones were involved, taking medication should be a sure shot solution. Practically, this is not seen. Patients on regular medication sometimes demonstrate symptoms, despite hormone levels normalising. How Thyroid Works/

If one wants to actually cure a disease, it is important to understand the root cause. Problems can happen because of the thyroid gland functioning too much or too less. We need to find out what is causing this imbalance.

Antibodies are a well established cause of hypothyroidism. Hence, factors which are linked with presence of antibodies must all be addressed when the aim is permanent cure, not temporary control.

There are various factors which determine the environment inside our body. These include:

  • Leaky gut
  • High inflammation
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Improper diet
  • Continued use of antibiotics, antacids and painkillers
  • Stress
  • Toxins eg. aluminium, mercury
  • Contact with pesticides and plastics
  • Lack of exercise

Why blame genes when so many actions of ours can accidentally affect our body? The silver lining is, these conditions are treatable and balance can be restored to your body using natural remedies.

This means that your treatment is not just a prescription for thyroid disease. It has been designed individually for you to suit your specific needs after reaching the root cause. Only then can we aim to reverse the disease.

What do we need to keep in mind?

  1. Stress reduction

    Chronic stress, whether physical or mental, increases inflammation in the body. It also reduces the resources available to the thyroid gland to produce hormones.

  2. Good nutrition

    Just like a car cannot run without fuel, our body cannot function without nutrients. Quality of food matters just as much as quantity. Consuming food which is processed or laden with pesticides is harmful to health.

  3. Healthy gut

    What would you expect if a pipe in your home leaks? Pools of water will be formed. Similarly, a leaky gut results in entry of substances which have to be removed from the body.

    This is also linked to gluten sensitivity. Gluten is a component of certain grains such as wheat and barley which can make your digestive system extremely sensitive. This can cause loose stools and stomach aches.

    Another associated feature is related to the ability of the gut to fight infections. This is linked to the trillions of bacteria which are very essential to process the consumed food.

  4. Limit exposure to blue light

    There are various types of radiation which we are exposed to in our daily life. One of these is a type of ultraviolet radiation from phone screens, laptops, and even LED tube lights known as blue light.

    Increased night time exposure to this has been known to directly impact thyroid hormone levels.

What can you expect when you come for a treatment plan?

Detailed history taking

We begin with an hour-long session aimed to understand what problems you are facing. This also helps to understand when your thyroid problems began. Following this a personalised plan can be formulated.

Reaching the root cause

Are you tired of getting too many investigations done? Do you wonder why every doctor advises yet another blood test ?

The first thing to understand is that laboratory tests are not used to only diagnose a condition. They provide insight into your health and the functioning of your body. This can help pinpoint where the problem lies.

These are the panel of tests which help us reach the root cause of your disease.

  • Complete blood count (CBC) with ESR
  • Cardiometabolic
    1. Fasting glucose and hemoglobin A1c
    2. Fasting Insulin
    3. Lipid Profile
    4. Homocysteine

Raised insulin levels seen in PCOS and certain cases of diabetes can also reduce production of thyroid hormones.

  • Nutrition Profile:
    1. Vitamin D
    2. Iron panel with ferritin
    3. Vitamin B12
    4. Magnesium

A wide variety of nutrients such as iron, iodine, zinc, selenium and several vitamins and other micronutrients are needed by the thyroid gland to function.

  • Inflammation markers
  • Heavy Metal Toxins
  • Liver Function Test
  • Thyroid Function
    1. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
    2. Free T3 and T4
    3. Anti TPO antibodies and antithyroglobulin antibodies

How to permanently improve thyroid health?

Now that we have understood which of the multiple environmental factors are affecting you, we can move towards treating them.

Reducing inflammation and taking appropriate lifestyle modification measures help to reverse thyroid function. This means that thyroid disease does not have to be a part of your identity forever.

  • Detailed elimination diet

    We do not want to confuse you by providing guidelines and instructions. We aim to make this process as easy for you as possible. Foods to cut out and eat in the Elimination Diet/

    For this, an exact list of ingredients which can be consumed and which have to be avoided are given. Along with this, a counselling session is done with an expert who explains how different food products affect thyroid function.

    This is done after an assessment of your caloric requirements and what macronutrient you need. The end result is a diet plan which is no fuss and easy to follow.

  • Nutritional supplementation

    Your blood work will bring to light if you need any micronutrients. These will be designed specifically as per your requirements, not as a blanket treatment.

    Additionally, nutrients known to boost thyroid function are added. All of these work together to boost the natural activity of your thyroid gland.

  • Lifestyle modifications

    The two main components of daily lifestyle are diet and exercise. Now that the first one has been tackled, let us consider the latter.

    Not everyone needs intense exercise. Simple breathing practices, walking and yoga are effective for general health. The exercise regimes provided are designed to reduce stress and improve your metabolism. This will keep your weight in check as well as keep you calm.

  • Medication

    Thyroid hormone replacement is an essential part of the treatment process. But it is not the only part.

    To make thyroid medication work for you, it should be used as part of a comprehensive plan which addresses every aspect of the disease. That is what we at Jeevam Health do.

    We ensure that the medicines you take are at the optimal dose. We also assess the side effects or various shortcomings due to which you may face problems.

    Please remember that individual diagnosis of thyroid disorders such as Graves disease, Hashimoto thyroiditis and hyperthyroidism have specific treatment protocols. This may even include surgery or radioactive iodine.

    All treatment options are evaluated based on your blood test results and complaints. The ultimate aim is not only to correct your hormone levels but resolve all issues you are facing due to your present condition.

Conclusion

So can thyroid disease be reversed? Absolutely. But it requires sustained dedicated effort from your side to build a lifestyle to take care of yourself.

A lot of interrelated factors go hand in hand in causing a disease. So it is only natural that its treatment should include all of them, not only the end result. Therefore, opt for a solution based on sound medical advice. Invest in permanent results.
