Hashimoto thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease of the thyroid gland. This means that the antibodies produced by the body damage the tissues of the thyroid. The root causes for this disorder remain officially unclear. It is estimated that up to 5 % of the population are affected and the tendency is increasing. It is often seen that the progression of this disease is asymptomatic over a long period. Later there is often a hypoactivity (reduced function) of the thyroid gland and sometimes it may lead to a mostly temporary hyperactivity (increased function). Women are 9 times more likely to be affected. Hashimoto thyroiditis is often associated with other autoimmune diseases that are not so harmless in their progression.
From a biological point of view it makes sense to carry out an investigation and treatment for this disorder. Even if “officially” the root causes are regarded as being unclear, we have many years of experience and significant success with our root cause therapy.

The changes in environmental and living conditions as well as dietary habits play significant roles in the development of disorders and diseases of the immune system (autoimmune diseases) but these are largely ignored by conventional medicine. When you already have such a weakened immune system then “the door is open” to so called low grade virus infections; these being virus infections that are active in your body but below your sensory threshold. They are proven to be involved in the development of several autoimmune diseases and also cancer.
