A person suffering from Hashimotos is often frustrated, confused, and hopeless. Their doctors don't seem to have the answers and the drugs they have prescribed don't really make much difference. There are many excellent medical studies out there that provide clear guidelines for doctors on how to treat Hashimotos effectively.
The problem is that this information rarely finds its way into the clinical practice of doctors. Hashimoto Thyroiditis Therapy are complex processes that require years for the treatment. Believe me, if you have been diagnosed with Hashimotos, you are one of the lucky few because there are millions and millions of women who suffer needlessly and don't even know they have it.
Hashimoto's are the main cause of hypothyroidism but only a few doctors examine it. At least you know and now you can do something about it. There are several approaches needed to correct Hashimotos but the most important is taking selenium.
When your thyroid cells make thyroid hormones, they must also make hydrogen peroxide. H2O2 production is very important for the conversion of iodide to iodine. At the same time, your thyroid also produces substances to neutralize or neutralize some of the downstream effects of hydrogen peroxide.
This is where selenium enters. Selenium needs to be present so that your thyroid cells make selenoprotein which then produces antioxidants such as glutathione. This maintains and protects your thyroid cells from the 'warming' or inflammatory effects of hydrogen peroxide.
