If you are like most, then this is the journey you have experienced since getting the diagnosis.

After finding out you have hypothyroidism, you receive the typical treatment protocol which is getting a prescription for a synthetic T4 thyroid hormone, such as Levothyroxine (Synthroid). You hope that all of those nagging symptoms would go away, but as the months go on it MANY people feel like the symptoms don’t really improve at all, or maybe they improved initially but then worsened again.


Does this sound like you? If so, this may be because of a condition known as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s is the most common cause of hypothyroid and is an autoimmune condition. In an autoimmune condition, there is a body part that becomes a target of the immune system- and the immune system starts to view that body part as a foreign invader.

In Hashimoto’s, the part of the body that has become a target is your thyroid, and the upstream cause that needs to be addressed is the immune system. It is important to figure out what is triggering the immune system to remain dysregulated and attack the thyroid, because as the destruction continues, it becomes harder and harder for the thyroid to produce thyroid hormones, which leads to worsening hypothyroid symptoms and the need for medications!

There are a range of things that can be triggers for autoimmune flares including: food intolerances, nutrient depletions, toxins, infections, stress, and more.


The goal of care is to figure out what the triggers are for each unique person—and what is causing their symptoms to flare up. Until then, many people continue to experience symptoms despite having “normal labs” and being on medication. The good news is, there are steps we can take to help shift your immune system to a place of balance.

We understand there are many factors that negatively impact thyroid and immune health that go beyond the thyroid. For this reason, you will experience a comprehensive approach utilizing our proprietary BMB Method where we evaluate the health of your body as a whole: brain, mind, and body.
