Hashimoto’s Thyroid Antibodies and ANA Better with Natural Treatment

Hashimoto's Thyroid Antibodies

What if I told you it is possible to lower your thyroid antibodies and other autoimmune markers to normal? I’m going to tell you how I was able to help one of my patients do that in just seven weeks. My name is Dr. Tom Rofrano from The Natural Medicine Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I’ve been blessed to have seen over 100,000 patient visits in the last 36 years. 

One of my patients, a 33-year-old man, came to see me because he had stomach problems his whole life. He was overweight, had high blood pressure, and fatigue. He was feeling miserable. He had a small child, his wife was pregnant. He really wanted to get healthy and get his energy back. 

Discovering Root Causes

We did an evaluation and some comprehensive testing and found out he had elevated thyroid antibodies which indicated Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. This is an autoimmune condition where the body starts attacking itself or the thyroid gland. 

His ANA, another autoimmune marker, was also elevated. That typically means a patient has lupus or another autoimmune condition. 

He was also pre-diabetic. He had above optimal inflammation and insulin levels as well.

When I work with patients, I look at the five main categories of deficiencies, toxins, hormonal imbalance, infections, and food reactions. This patient was deficient in multiple nutrients including the most common deficiencies I see which are B12, folate, vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, chromium, and selenium. 

Along with those deficiencies he also had high levels of the toxins, arsenic and mercury. 

His infections included a parasite protozoan Blastocystis Hominis and a bacterial imbalance. 

Under hormonal imbalances, his adrenals were under functioning, with his DHEA and cortisol at below optimal levels. 

As far as food reactions, he had a gluten sensitivity as well as leaky gut. The majority of Hashimoto’s and autoimmune patients have a gluten sensitivity. This leads to other food reactions, of which he had many. 

Addressing Hashimoto’s and Other Health Concerns

We started his treatment plan by putting him on The FreeDiet®. It’s a diet I came up with over many years of working with patients and helping myself get better. I had Hashimoto’s, rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, skin issues, and fatigue. I personally had to figure out a way to get better when I went to an endocrinologist, and she said your Hashimoto’s antibodies are high and it’ll always be that way while your thyroid gets more destroyed. 

I couldn’t accept that as an answer so I dove into the research and trial and error testing and I figured out how to clear out my own Hashimoto’s and rheumatoid arthritis. Those antibodies went to normal and I healed my gut as well as all the other things that I had going on. I’ve since been able to help patients with health issues. 

Starting The FreeDiet® and Supplements

I developed The FreeDiet® when I realized that a gluten free diet alone did not work. The diet needs to be free of not only gluten but also grains, sugar, yeast, dairy, eggs, soy, legumes, nightshades, and processed foods. All those foods most commonly responsible for inflammation, leaky gut, thyroid, and other chronic health issues. With The FreeDiet®, I was able to finally get better. 

The FreeDiet® book goes over the diet in more detail, and you can go here for your complimentary copy of The FreeDiet® phase one food chart.

So I had this patient take specific supplements that I refer to as the Functional Five™, which includes ActivMulti™, OmegaSorb™3X fish oil, D3 5000 +K2, Magnesium Malate, and start with a strong probiotic in his case PriobioXtreme™.

He also needed as do most of my thyroid patients Selenium Supreme™, MethylFolate B12 Plus, Curcumin Protect™, Zinc Glycinate,  C-Bioflavonoids 500, and NAC. In this patient’s case, CardiometaboliX to support healthy blood sugar levels as well as digestive support supplements. 

I also recommended Metal Cleanse™ since he had high arsenic and mercury levels.

Getting Results after Seven Weeks

After seven weeks of following The FreeDiet® and taking supplements, we did one of the initial blood tests over again. The result was his TPO thyroid antibodies and ANA decreased to normal. 

He was no longer pre-diabetic and his glucose dropped 21 points and insulin 70 percent. The uric acid and CRP reduced while his cholesterol went down 28 points. 

He was feeling so much better, and his energy improved while his abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea cleared up. 

His blood pressure also decreased to normal. And over a period of three months he lost 31 pounds! His wife had a baby during this time, so it was just in time for that experience. 

You Can Get Help Too!

Take a look at my book, The FreeDiet®, which has a chapter on Hashimoto’s and autoimmune conditions where I go over the protocol in more detail and you can go here for your complimentary copy of The FreeDiet® phase one food chart.
