THYROID AND AUTOIMMUNITY

What is the purpose of the thyroid? The thyroid gland is a small organ in the body that secretes hormones responsible for controlling your metabolism. When the correct amount of hormones is not being secreted, this leads to thyroid disease.


Did you know 90% of thyroid disease is actually autoimmune in nature, which means that your own immune system is attacking the tissues of the thyroid gland. The thyroid is a super sensitive organ and it is required by every cell in the body. Symptoms such as constipation, frequent common colds, frequent infections, irritability, dry skin, body aches, anxiety, eyebrow thinning and waking up feeling tired are all signs of potential thyroid irregularities. Furthermore, autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s and Graves are normally correlated with a poorly functioning thyroid gland.
