is hypothyroidism curableHypothyroidism is a condition in which there is low production, and reduced activity of your thyroid hormones. If you’ve been diagnosed with a low thyroid disorder you may be wondering ‘is hypothyroidism curable?’

Is Hypothyroidism Curable?

YES! It’s important to understand that hypothyroid problems are complex…however, making sense of your hypothyroid disorder may finally help restore your health, and vitality.

If you think you’re experiencing hypothyroidism you should discuss your concerns with your healthcare practitioner. Together you can discuss ways to properly investigate your concerns, and look at thyroid testing options.

Did you know taking a good medical history is an extremely important first step in the diagnostic process?

It’s important to consider relevant information such as your past health issues, your family medical history, dietary and lifestyle habits, and the types of environmental chemicals you have been exposed to throughout your life. This takes on more significance if you’ve had a job where you where exposed to industrial chemicals.

From there it’s important to get comprehensive blood tests done. You will find comprehensive testing provides an important diagnostic framework, and eliminates any guesswork. In effect, it provides invaluable insights into overall thyroid function. Your doctor may also refer you for medical tests such as a thyroid ultrasound.

A Holistic Treatment Approach To Hypothyroidism

As a Naturopath I don’t believe in one size fits all treatment.

The reason?

The truth is, to cure hypothyroidism naturally it’s vital to investigate, then treat the underlying ROOT causes.

A holistic approach to healing thyroid health looks to uncover the source of the hypothyroid problem, and then treat the underlying root causes.

An effective treatment strategy includes adopting a nutritious, real food diet, taking top quality nutritional supplements, and using other self-care strategies to get your health back on track. As you can imagine it takes time to heal your thyroid, especially if you have been suffering with sub-optimal thyroid function for many years.

  1. Hai mam/ sir,

    Im Sopna… I’m just 23 years old and have TSH of 3.159… What type of thyroid is this.. And what type of food I have to take… Please guide me?

  2. Louise O'Connor says:

    Hi Sopna, a raised TSH indicates low thyroid function. It means more if you also get other thyroid test done. A complete thyroid panel includes TSH, free T4, free T3, thyroid antibodies, and reverse T3. I discuss diet and lifestyle strategies on the blog and my eBook The Natural Thyroid Diet has detailed information. Best wishes, Louise O’Connor

  3. Patricia says:

    Thank you for your valuable insight in hypothyroidism.
    As a sufferer of this condition, I’ve learned through some research that the adrenal glands affect the thyroid, so would it be advisable to work on the adrenals first?
    I have a lot of the symptoms of low thyroid ,but I suffer from every single symptom of adrenal fatigue.
    Kind regards & many thanks for your research, keep up the good work.

    • Louise O'Connor says:

      Hi Patricia, great to hear this blog post gave you valuable insights into hypothyroidism. There’s definitely a strong connection between low thyroid health and poor adrenal function. In fact, adrenal fatigue often goes hand-in-hand with an under active thyroid. It’s therefore wise to work with a skilled practitioner who can develop a treatment plan to address both issues. Best wishes, Louise O’Connor
