Our goal is to educate and empower Hashimoto’s patients to treat the underlying autoimmune condition to thereby reduce symptoms and prevent further decline. There are so many Thyroid and Autoimmune related resources and we hope to merge all of these resources here to ease the burden of others who are newly diagnosed or simply new to researching their disease. We share information for patients by patients. What we’ve seen from patient experience is that mainstream medicine typically only treats the thyroid and in many cases patients are not even aware that they are dealing with an Autoimmune disease with many possible underlying factors. These factors usually include food sensitivities, stress, environmental triggers, nutrient deficiencies, and hormone imbalances. Everyone is different and determining your own needs will require some trial-and-error, patience, and determination. To start, we recommend a thorough anti-inflammatory elimination and provocation diet such as the autoimmune protocol. In reducing our intake of likely allergens, we are able to tame our immune system, enable detox, correct blood sugar, hormone, and gut flora imbalances, recover from nutrient deficiencies, and determine our own unique food sensitivities. The process brings us better in tune with our bodies so that we can more clearly establish where our symptoms are coming from.
Hashimoto’s 411 was founded as a Facebook group where patients could discuss and share information with a focus on treating the whole autoimmune disease and any and all underlying conditions. We are proud to have introduced this website as well as a new Facebook Page separate from the group where we are able to highlight and provide further education on trending topics from within the group.
