Why So Many Lingering Illnesses and Conditions Persist – Matters That Can Be Treated When the Right Thyroid Tests Are Administered.
If you’ve tried time and again to lose weight after the holidays, but have been stymied, you may not have been looking in the right place for answers. Beyond diet and exercise, the problem could be thyroid.
But your usual battery of standard thyroid tests may not detect the problem. Dr. Gil Kajiki, the nation’s leading expert in non-drug treatment for hypothyroidism, low thyroid and Hashimoto’s disease and founder of the Valley Thyroid Institute, a worldwide treatment center, says that not just weight issues–but many other illnesses and conditions–can be effectively treated when the right tests are applied.
There is no one-size fits all solution to thyroid dysfunction. Without the distinctive legion of tests that Dr. Kajiki has identified, most doctors miss the signs and are mystified at why patients aren’t getting well. To find the right treatment that pinpoints the specific root cause of a patient’s thyroid-related ailment or auto-immune problem, Dr. Kajiki created the internationally acclaimed Kajiki Protocol. He engages a wide variety of testing procedures and indicators, including: 11 different thyroid tests instead of the standard three, inflammatory blood markers, immune system challenges, gastro-intestinal microbial, leaky gut testing, adrenal dysfunction, urinary hormone metabolites and more.
He says, “People that have lab tests results that are considered “normal”, by their doctor, but still feel lousy typically, have the best outcomes. The treatment protocols I develop are specific to each patient, and are created based on lab test results and not just symptoms. I do not use a “cookie cutter” recipe for anyone. Our protocols– all natural and drug-free–are for difficult thyroid and Auto-Immune cases that just don’t respond well to medication, or for the person that wants to minimize medication. I work in conjunction with a patient’s current physician should they still need medications for any reason.”

His quest for solving the thyroid conundrum arose from personal experience. His wife Kim was diagnosed with Epstein-Barr syndrome, suffering from extreme fatigue, fevers, hair loss and had bouts of malaise. She required frequent B-12 shots just to be functional. These bouts of illness continued over the next several years and by 2007, new symptoms had appeared: sweating and heart palpitations at night, digestion disturbed by abdominal bloating, gas and swelling and a 50-pound weight gain. As her health continued to decline, including trips to the hospital, her M.D.s didn’t have any answers. Dr. Kajiki set out to researching a solution himself and put together a variety of tests that finally pointed to Hashimoto’s disease—and the only solution offered by Kim’s MD was lifetime thyroid hormone replacement. Knowing there had to be another way, Dr. Kajiki created the life-saving protocol that completely healed his wife. It opened the way for an entirely new focus for his practice.
