Are You Skeptical About Natural Thyroid Treatment Methods? If It sounds Too Good To Be True you May Want To Read This Article First.
Regardless of how many thyroid sufferers turn towards natural thyroid treatment approach, some still remain skeptical as to whether these treatment methods really work.
It is of course completely normal to be skeptical and understandable seeing as most people are unaware that many thyroid conditions can in fact be cured, especially when they are told otherwise by their endocrinologist or general medical practitioner.
Sadly many thyroid sufferers will think that because the medication failed and surgery failed that they are doomed to a life of misery.
If there was a cure for most cases of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, including autoimmune thyroid disorders such a Grave’s Disease,Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, then why, you might wonder, wouldn’t the endocrinologists and other medical providers recommend such an approach? This is a three part answer; there are three main reasons for this:
Reason #1: They are trained to recommend conventional medical treatment methods and Nothing else.
This might sound unbelievable, but it’s true. In medical school they don’t focus on Nutrition/Lifestyle changes/ holistic treatment methods, or functional Medicine, instead they use conventional methods that just manage symptoms using drugs, surgery, and other procedures.
You would think that doctors would get tired of having patients back in their office every 6 months complaining of all the same symptoms that the patient was initially seeking help for. That doesn’t seem to be the case though.
There is no question or doubt that drugs, surgery and other treatment procedures have their place, however Natural Thyroid treatment that encompasses the entire picture is incredibly safe, its effective and doesn’t come with a laundry list of side effects. Doesn’t it make sense to ask why you have fatigue, or sleeping problems, or high cholesterol or hair loss than to just treat the symptoms. A natural approach to Thyroid problems requires a doctor to look at the whole picture. Things like Neurological function for (brain fog, Memory, Anxiety) Gut Function and food sensitivities for the (Cramping, belching, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, etc), Adrenal glands for (blood sugar issues, fatigue, sleeping problems etc) Male and Female Hormone imbalances, Immune Function,
This is not the case for Thyroid sufferers. For every symptom you have or express concern, Traditional doctors simply pull out the prescription pad. Many people are being lied to, that could be helped by following a natural thyroid treatment protocol, but are being told by their medical/endocrinologist doctor that they need to take antidepressants, Beta blockers, statins, synthetic hormones, thyroid hormone, or they need radioactive iodine therapy, thyroid gland surgery or take anti-thyroid drugs for the rest of their lives. WITH NO HOPE OF EVERY GETTING WELL.
Reason #2: Many medical doctors are close minded and Don’t want to know about Natural Health.
NO! that couldn’t be true.
Many medical doctors go on to practice holistic medicine, so this of course doesn’t apply to all of the medical doctors out there. But I am still shocked at how many medical doctors will tell patients that natural treatments don’t work (If they didn’t work I would not have over 200 articles and testimonials of how natural thyroid treatmenthas restored the lives of individuals who have come to our office, but how it has restored families.
Unfortunately, there are many medical doctors who are not open minded when it come to holistic healthcare. I can’t pinpoint exactly why this is the case, perhaps they become so accustomed to recommending thyroid hormone, anti-thyroid drugs, thyroid removal and other conventional treatment methods that they simply become skeptical as to whether something natural can help their patients or be safe and/or effective. ( but then again considering the success rate, I am sure many are left still scratching their heads and wondering if what they are doing is truly what’s best for their patients)
I respect someone who does their research about holistic healthcare and decides that it’s not for them. But many medical doctors (and people in general) automatically rule out natural Thyroid treatment without doing the research. Don’t do this.
Just remember, once Your Thyroid is Destroyed or Removed there is NO reversing that process. It’s Gone For Good
I think it works both ways, I know some holistic doctors who aren’t receptive to any conventional medical treatment methods. As I mentioned previously, there is a time and place for both conventional medical treatment methods and natural treatment methods and sometimes you need the type of care where they intersect. It’s just unfortunate that most medical doctors and holistic practitioners won’t work together and keep an open mind.
Reason #3: The Financial Incentives.
This is always a sensitive subject and can be hard to stomach for some, but the fact remains that many, if not most, doctors will recommend conventional medical treatment methods because they are much more profitable than most natural methods.The average cost for radioactive iodine therapy and Thyroid removal is $8,000-$15,000 depending on things like how long you stay in the hospital, the hospital you go to, the imaging, the anesthesia,physician fees, and post operative care. Although this may not seem like an enormous amount of money it’s still more money than these doctors would make if they were recommending nutritional supplements and other natural therapies. Let us not forget that people who receive RAI will most likely need to take thyroid hormone for the rest of their lives and will need to come in for regular check-ups, testing, etc. as a result.
This benefits two parties: the medical doctors and the drug companies. This unhealthy relationship between the two is a big reason why many conventional treatment methods and prescription drugs are recommended.
