For a lot of people who have thyroid problems, there are many larger, systemic problems throughout the body that aren’t addressed so patients continue to get worse, even on thyroid medication. What people don’t know is that about 50% of Hashimoto’s patients have neurological antibodies, which means the condition is impacting their brain and could lead to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, and other neurological diseases. Thyroid medications typically don’t address these issues, so each patient needs an individual treatment plan to address specific inflammation and immune system triggers.
