Fix Your Thyroid


From what I've read so far, Thyroid disease seems to be not so much a disease in itself but a symptom of something deeper. This website is very informative with lots of interesting videos explaining the processes which cause the body to attack the thyroid. I have found it a real eye-opener and I will now feel much more confident discussing these issues with my GP ;-)

Most hypothyroidism is caused by Hashimotos auto immune disease so it is definately something a lot deeper.

You probably already know a great deal more than your GP.

Most don't consider autoimmune problems that important as the treatment (as quoted in their doctors guidebook) for hypothyroidism ( no matter what the cause ) is Levothyroxine alone.



Thanks for the link - it is helpful.


Very strange as it only covers hypo not hyper it's really difficult to find anything for graves

Hello Rush

There is also info on Graves, I'm sure he mentions it on the Gluten connection video. You could email him and ask him to do a video on Graves ;-)
