I'm new and didn't see a community for Hashimoto's, but I'm sure I'm not alone. I'm 67 and now have a ND who thinks the main cause of my high thyroid auto-antibodies are from all my 7 root canals plus 4 cavitations (holes in jaws) from improperly extracted wisdom teeth. These sites harbor huge bacterial infections (though it can't be felt except chronic sinus symptoms) and overwhelm my immune system. See: healingteethnaturally.com/d... )
As I have begun my journey of extractions, it has been scary because my antibody numbers have gone up instead of down. The doctor says it is because we are stirring up the bacteria from the dental extraction sites which the body now has to deal with in addition to what it was already dealing with. But I am told that over time my immune system will get stronger as I get rid of the source of infections via extraction of root canal teeth and properly cleaning the infected jaw cavitations. Only biological dentists do this-they are concerned with the whole body, not just the teeth.
Is there anyone else with a similar experience? I feel like the Lone Ranger. I would love to hear from anyone with a similar experience. Thanks!
