Over 95 percent of today’s thyroid disorders, including Hashimoto’s, stem from a viral infection. (The other 5 percent come from radiation.) That virus is Epstein-Barr (EBV).
After a long incubation period—typically in the liver—EBV begins its journey to the thyroid, and then enters into the tissue there. Over time, the viral load will weaken the thyroid, making it less effective at producing the hormones the body relies upon. As time passes, in many people the EBV will also slowly inflame the thyroid, leading from a case of hypothyroidism to a case of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. This is not your body betraying you. Rather, your immune system is going after a real intruder and working hard to protect you.
Medical communities believe Hashimoto’s is the result of the immune system somehow going haywire, mistaking thyroid cells for invaders, and declaring war on them. That’s not correct. The body does not attack itself. Our immune systems do not become confused and go after our own organs. This is as true for the thyroid as it is for any other gland or organ. The mistaken theory of autoimmune disease is merely a blame game. It points a finger of fault at the patient’s own body to distract from the truth that medical research has not yet scratched the surface of what causes thyroid conditions.
Fuels for the EBV behind thyroid issues can range from mercury to unproductive hormones to residue from troublemaker foods such as eggs.
