Thyroid disease awareness

Thyroid disease is wide-spread in Western countries. According to the American Thyroid Association, it is estimated that around 20 million Americans will suffer from thyroid-related disorders in their lifetime and around 60% of those are unaware of their condition.

Women are five to eight times more likely than men to have thyroid problems and one woman in eight will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime. The most common form of thyroid disease is low thyroid function also called hypothyroidism. In the USA drugs for treating low thyroid function is the most prescribed form of medication.

How To Find The Best Thyroid Treatment?

With such a widespread disease one should think that finding a good treatment for hypothyroidism would be easy. However, I have experienced the opposite is true.

Many doctors are not trained probably in the diagnosis of low thyroid function. Often a case of hypothyroidism is overlooked, as the doctors focus only on thyroid blood tests, and if you are within the normal range on the blood test, your symptoms are dismissed as physiological, rather than being seen as symptoms of hypothyroidism.

The normal range for thyroid blood tests has been made very broad, which unfortunately means that many people that in reality are suffering from symptoms of low thyroid function are not being diagnosed as such.

You can learn more about the problems with thyroid blood tests in our Hypothyroid Treatment program Module 16.

Can You Recover From Hypothyroidism?

When I was 20 years old I had symptoms of hypothyroidism. I suffered from fatigue, digestive problems, skin problems, and hormonal disturbance. I tried many different treatments both conventionally and more alternative treatments, however, nothing really worked. I was very lucky to come in contact with an American biologist Dr. Ray Peat, and with his help and guidance, I overcame my hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalances.


What Is Dr. Ray Peat’s Thyroid Healing Method?

Dr. Ray Peat is a leading expert on thyroid function and its role in health. For more than 40 years Dr. Ray Peat has researched the interaction of diet, hormones, aging, and disease. His key notion is that the gap between the body’s resources and the demands placed on it from the environment creates disease. Thus harmful degenerative processes occur instead of repair and healing when there is low thyroid function and thus lack of cellular energy. You can learn more about the balance of health and disease in our Hypothyroid Treatment program, Module 1.

The difference between Dr. Ray Peat’s health method and the other health methods I have tried is that Dr. Ray Peat’s method looks holistically at the body, taking both diet, supplement, hormonal support, and thyroid medication into account in a synergistic way. Dr. Ray Peat’s health methods are built on a deep understanding of the body on the biochemical level.

Through my company BiochemNordic, I seek to raise awareness about the symptoms of thyroid disease and encourage those who are already receiving medical help to turn to additional natural thyroid treatment methods.

BiochemNordic’s online thyroid treatment services help you heal your thyroid using the natural health principles of Dr. Ray Peat. The services are not just another quick fix, they are all built on a deep understanding of how the cells of your body function on the biochemical level.

Since Dr. Ray Peat’s research can be difficult to understand if you do not have a particular scientific background I have developed programsguides, and consultation services, that help you use this amazing holistic thyroid treatment method, without too much difficulty.
