Hashimoto’s disease, also known as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, thyroiditis, or simply Hashimoto’s, is an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system is attacked by the thyroid.
Conventional medicine does not have effective treatments available to treat this disease. However, patients have the option to address the symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease with compounding pharmacy treatments.
American Integrative Pharmacy, led by the fabulous and judicious Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides state of the art compounding treatments, including solutions for patients of some of the most complex thyroid disorders, including Hashimoto’s disease. The treatments are designed not only to address the symptoms of Hashimoto’s, but also to slow down the disease or completely stop it in its tracks.
AIP’s innovative treatment options in integrative pharmacy can help patients achieve relief from the symptoms of Hashimoto’s and restore their health. AIP provides these treatments to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
Hashimoto’s disease is one of the most common causes of hypothyroidism. Patients may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Life feels like a rollercoaster, with periods of high energy followed by periods of excessive fatigue and energy loss
- The patient feels increasingly sluggish or tired
- Episodes of anxiety
- Feeling of a lump in the throat making it difficult to swallow
- Hoarse voice
- Feeling of tightness in the throat
Who is at risk?
Hashimoto’s disease may affect about one person out of every thousand, but many more will have inflammation of the thyroid without the presence of antibodies. The disease is much more prevalent among women, and occurs most often between the ages of 45 and 65. Children can also have Hashimoto’s disease, particularly in populations where dietary iodine is scarce.
Hashimoto’s disease can cause growth disruption in children and teens, and therefore, it should be carefully monitored. Increased immune response during pregnancy makes pregnant women also at a higher risk of this disease. Patients should carefully consider their treatment options in compounding pharmacy to achieve relief from the symptoms.
Hashimoto’s disease should be proactively treated at an early stage in patients who reveal any level of antibodies. In such cases, it may be possible to stop the disease progression, prevent further damage of the thyroid, and minimize the risk of the patient developing hypothyroidism. American Integrative Pharmacy makes use of advanced integrative and prescription therapies to treat the underlying immune dysfunction that may lead to Hashimoto’s disease.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can work successfully to restore the healthy levels of thyroid hormone. Patients of Hashimoto’s disease can significantly benefit from these naturally compounded hormones instead of synthetic hormones provided in conventional HRT.
Patients with this condition often have low levels of DHEA and testosterone. These can be supplemented with compounding pharmacy solutions to help reduce the levels of antibodies and mitigate the continuing damage to the thyroid gland.
