Highlights from today's episode include:
Dr. Gil Kajiki 03:39
So autoimmune, by its definition means your own immune system is attacking a body part. So, if your own immune system attacks your thyroid is called Hashimoto’s. If your own immune system attacks your joint is called rheumatoid arthritis, if your own immune system attacks your pancreas, it's called diabetes one. If your own immune system attacks your colon, they call that ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. So, it's your own immune system going haywire, for some reason, and then it starts attacking a body part.
Dr. Gil Kajiki
what I look for in every case is I look for these nine triggers. So, I look for anemia, blood sugar instability, adrenal gland dysfunction, hormone imbalance, inflammation, gastrointestinal problems, food sensitivities, hidden infections, and chemical sensitivities. So, I want to distinguish, is that a thyroid problem? Or is it a trigger problem?
Dr. Gil Kajiki 29:15
I'll tell you this, is that there's always an answer. Okay, you may not feel like it like when people say I've been everywhere. No, you haven't. You haven't been everywhere. Okay. Just because I don't know the answer. That doesn't mean there isn't one.
ABOUT DR GIL KAJIKI:
Dr. Gil Kajiki is the author of Sick, Tired, Untreated and Abandoned: How the Medical Community Fails Hashimoto’s Patients and How You Can Get Your Life Back.
He is a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Chiropractor C.F.M.P., D.C. and patient educator with clients on 4 continents. His clientele include celebrities, corporate leaders, women stressed by family life and work, computer programmers, athletes, homemakers, radio show hosts, admin assistants, health practitioners and doctors. At the Valley Thyroid Institute, he and his staff are revolutionizing the way that hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroid are diagnosed and corrected using drug-free solutions
Through working with his patients he developed the Kajiki Protocol for determining thyroid and autoimmune issues with a particular concentration on Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. He offers his patients answers and protocols to improve thyroid function and overall health.
His wife became ill with what at first appeared to be Epstein Barr. As he watched his wife’s health deteriorate under the care of several doctors, Dr. Kajiki began a relentless search for answers to why his healthy wife could become so ill and yet no one seemed to know how to care for her. After more than two years of tests, medication, B12 shots, and finally hospitalization, it was her husband and not her medical provider who came to her rescue.
After countless hours of study, consultation with colleagues, and testing, Dr. Kajiki diagnosed his wife with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid. He spent the next several months treating her autoimmune condition through natural supplements, lifestyle modifications, and dietary changes. She is now symptom free and doesn’t take any thyroid medication.
Dr. Kajiki couldn’t stand to think that perhaps somebody else was having to go through the prolonged struggle with this condition as he and his wife had. Because of this experience, he dedicated his practice to helping Hashimoto’s and low thyroid patients overcome their symptoms naturally.
Dr. Kajiki still works from his office in Tarzana, California, however his patients are from countries and cities all across the globe—many as far away as Canada, Romania, London and New Zealand. He is available to his patients in person, via skype or phone. Dr. Kajiki also has more than 100 video testimonials of successful outcomes from happy patients that implemented his Low Thyroid Protocol and are thrilled to tell the world of their success.
Core purpose/passion: To educate people about their condition, and empower them with information and confidence that they can manage their auto-immune condition holistically and with non-drug therapies. Helping people get out of their desperation that Conventional Medicine ignored or didn't have an answer for them.
