What Are Thyroid Disorders Exactly?
20 million Americans have a thyroid disorder.
60% are unaware of their condition.
It’s more than just running a thyroid lab and giving you a Rx. The thyroid is influenced by stress, sex and blood sugar regulating hormones, leaky gut, infections, food allergies, certain chemicals and metals can all impact YOUR health. If these other areas are not being addressed, then you will truly never feel better.
What are some common thyroid disorders?
1. Hyperthyroidism: This happens when your thyroid gland is over-active. You can think of it as chronic stress – your body is unable to get a proper resting state that promotes healing and relaxation. Because of this, your thyroid becomes over-active and can cause health issues.
2. Hypothyroidism: This happens when your thyroid is not active enough. Often this is associated with Hashimoto’s Disease (the next one on this list). Here are some common symptoms of hypothyroidism: you’re often tired, weak, depressed, constipated, and more.
3. Hashimoto’s Disease: This is also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis. More than 13 million Americans have Hashimoto’s Disease. People who are diagnosed with Hashimoto’s often experience symptoms like: depression, enlarged thyroid, dry skin, and more.
4. Goiter: This happens when you have an enlarged thyroid (not to be confused with thyroid cancer). Common symptoms of people who have goiter are: difficulty breathing, coughing/wheezing, and a swollen neck.
5. Thyroid Nodules: Thyroid Nodules are thought to happen due to iodine sufficiencies. Common symptoms of Thyroid Nodules are: nervousness, clammy skin, weight loss, and more.
6. Graves’ Disease: This is the most common type of hyperthyroidism in the United States. Roughly 1 in 200 people have Graves’ Disease (0.5% of the American population – that’s a lot). The disease is hereditary and common symptoms include: anxiety, hand tremors, difficulty sleeping, diarrhea, and more.

Thyroid Disorder Research: What Science Has To Say About It
Up to 90% of all thyroid cases are auto immune: Hashimoto’s & Graves’ being the most common. The thyroid is the master metabolism regulator and every cell has a thyroid receptor impacting all major body systems.
And, thankfully, there are ways to treat autoimmune diseases to reduce symptoms, experience more frequent and longer remissions, and reduce the frequency and intensity of flare-ups.
