Welcome to this week’s episode of Thyroid Strong where I give you a roadmap of what Hashimoto’s remission looks like from my own journey and the collaborative approach of my doctor. Listen in to find sound bites you can incorporate into your lifestyle.
Going into Hashimoto’s remission is possible. First, find a great doctor that will work with you in creating a hierarchical framework of what to treat first instead of treating everything simultaneously. Second, change your diet, change your sleep, change your workout to a Thyroid Strong style of working out and then address the root causes that can trigger your autoimmune condition.
How Do You Know When You’re in Hashimoto’s Remission?
Of women with Hashimoto’s, about 20% can go into remission. Those that go into remission have minimal destruction to the thyroid gland and exhibit their thyroid hormones within optimal range on a blood draw, no presence of thyroid antibodies specifically TGAB and TPO, and no presence of Hashimoto’s symptoms.
Three Changes to Make On Your Journey to Hashimoto’s Remission
First, change your diet. Start eliminating gluten, dairy, and alcohol. Second, change your sleep pattern. Instead of going to bed at the same time everyday, start waking up at the same time everyday and getting into the habit of a new circadian rhythm. Lastly, address the root causes of your Hashimoto’s and adjust your lifestyle further including your workout.
