Health Solutions Plus & Dr. Kevin Augustine Celebrate Autoimmune Awareness Month for Thyroid Symptoms

Share Article

The most common cause of thyroid symptoms in the United States is due to Autoimmune thyroid, also known as Hashimoto's thyroid. Over 14 million women continue to suffer from this type of thyroid problem.

Many women find autoimmune thyroid or Hashimoto's thyroid quite confusing and thats why it's important to celebrate Autoimmune Awareness month. In fact, some women don't even know that they have this problem because their thyroid blood work often comes back normal or just doesn't correlate with how they feel. Common symptoms include weight gain, hair loss, digestive issues, lack of energy, poor sleep, rapid heart beat, and hormone imbalances.

Many women continue to suffer with symptoms for years, despite taking thyroid medication, such as Synthyroid or Levothyroxine, which is prescribed by their primary doctor or endocrinologist. The key to getting relief is identifying the root cause or trigger to why the immune system is attacking normal healthy tissue.

"Unfortunately, many women are told their blood work is normal, even though they feel anything but normal," says Dr. Kevin Augustine. He goes on to say, "This is usually the start of a long journey for most woman that are diagnosed with thyroid problems."

"They go from one doctor to another in search of an answer to their thyroid symptoms, often leaving frustrated and in tears because they don't feel listened to or notice any progress, even though they follow through with everything their thyroid doctor tells them to do."

Dr. Kevin Augustine says that, "According to WebMD, common medications prescribed for thyroid problems such as Synthroid and Levothyroxine continue to be in the top 5 most prescribed medications in the United States. This is a serious issue. In 2018 alone (last updated stats), there were 101.5 million prescriptions written for those two thyroid medications."

"We routinely have health care professionals from all specialties join our thyroid classes to learn more about The DNA Uprint and how to help women naturally get relief from their chronic thyroid symptoms."
