Neurology, Stress and Thyroid Disorders. Stress as one of the causes of thyroid disorders and what can you do about it?
In the past 10 years, I’ve been asked repeatedly by many people what exactly causes thyroid disorders, and especially the autoimmune type. Apart from the pure psychosomatic explanation and the many other contributing factors I can enlist, the only other thing that came to my mind, in one word, is “stress” or inability to deal with it, in general. But that is only on the surface. Everyone is under stress, no doubt about that. How we handle that stress and specifically how those of us diagnosed with thyroid disorder handle it is totally another question.There is a growing evidence in the scientific field, discussing the relation between stress and auto-immune disorders, and I have to admit I am not surprised, I am actually convinced that one of the major factors for triggering Graves’ disease, hyperthyroidism or any other auto-immune disorder for that matter is exactly stress. The simple explanation about how stress affects us is demonstrated with the so called Vasomotoric cycle, first explained by Gerda Boysen, in 1980s. Graves’ disease patients can easily find themselves in the upper left corner of the pictured, “fixed” in the charging and expression mode.
