The frequency of Hashimoto’s disease is a growing trend.  Amongst caucasians it is estimated at approximately 5%. The dysfunction of the thyroid gland (hypothyroid) may be clinically evident (0.1–2% of the population) or subclinical (10–15%). It occurs five to ten times more often in women than men and its incidence increases with the age (the peak of the number of cases is between 45 and 65); however, it can also be diagnosed in children. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, whereby the thyroid gland is attacked by antithyroid peroxidase antibodies, via the lymph tissue. This leads to wasting away of thyroid tissue, the development of scar tissue and under functioning of the gland – Hypothyroidism.

The autoimmune condition Hashimoto’s thyroiditis responds really well to wholistic natural treatment. A treatment that works with you and your hormones, adrenals, digestive system, nutritional status and immune system. Only a holistic integrative approach yields positive results.

Fremantle Naturopath Laura Hickey has years of experience and many positive results turning Hashimoto’s around with Hashimoto’s natural treatments.

The disorder affects up to 2% of the general population and is more common in older women and ten times more frequent in women than in men.
