In this presentation Dr Baines discusses her protocols for treating Hashimoto’s and the special care that she gives her patients with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), bioidentical hormones and further on to integrative treatments. Dr Baines shares a case study of a 32 year old female patient with Hashimoto’s, polycystic ovarian syndrome, uterine fibroids and other health issues. Her symptoms included constipation, weight gain, stiffness, hair loss, very poor temperature regulation. The patient constantly felt overwhelmed and her sleep was poor.
Dr Baines compares the conventional treatment that this patient received against functional medicine with bioidentical hormones, diet changes and Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).
After three months on Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) this patient's fibroids had reduced in size and she was feeling a lot better, her sleep improved.
Dr Baines is quite detailed in this discussion and compares conventional care with holistic approach and queries whether conventional doctors are asking the right questions in conventional medicine? Concluding that “We certainly are not. We need to take a step back and look at this person as a whole and take it from there”.
Using Low Dose Naltrexone to get the immune system under control is an important step in bringing patients back to health.
