Welcome, everyone. This is Dr. Nikolas Hedberg and today I’m going to be talking about natural hormone replacement for women. I’m a board certified naturopathic physician. I’m also board certified in nutrition. I work with many women with hormone imbalances, thyroid problems, adrenal gland imbalances, and what we would call sex or reproductive hormone imbalances. Before we begin, let’s talk about a little research and a little bit of history around hormone replacement therapy. This is a really big topic, a popular topic. Bio identical hormones have been very very popular for years now. Various movie stars and celebrities have made it fairly popular and many women are using it successfully to manage their symptoms as they transition into menopause and beyond. So I wanted to create a nice overview to give you a really good understanding of hormones and the symptoms of hormone imbalances, what you can do about it, and see if it’s something that’s right for you. The Women’s Health Initiative, this was a study designed to provide information, really about the risks versus the benefits of conventional hormone replacement.

Well, welcome everyone. This is Dr. Nik Hedberg, and today I’m going to be talking about all the different causes of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. So Hashimoto’s thyroid disease is the most common autoimmune disease in the world. And it’s also the number cause of hypothyroidism in the world. One of the things about Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is that conventional medicine doesn’t really recognize Hashimoto’s thyroiditis as a major problem.

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Lyme Disease

Discovering the Connection Between Thyroiditis and Lyme Disease

Greetings friends, I’m Dr. Nik Hedberg, and today’s Hashimoto’s tip of the day relates to Lyme disease. This was a really fascinating discovery that I made years ago! While conducting some research, I discovered that there was a good connection between Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Lyme Disease. The bacteria that causes Lyme disease is known as Borrelia burgdorferi, and studies have shown that Borrelia can trigger Hashimoto’s via what we’ve talked about before – a process known as molecular mimicry.

Molecular mimicry is just that fancy term that basically means that your body’s immune system not only attacks the infection, but it also affects self-tissue that looks like the infection. So as a result, you get a Borrelia infection that causes Lyme. The body doesn’t just attack the Borrelia, but it also attacks the thyroid gland as well.
