Massage for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid. Like all autoimmune disease, it is most often triggered by stress. Stress compromises the immune system, and in some people this causes the immune system to start attacking the body's own healthy tissue. In this case it is the follicles of the thyroid gland.

Somebody diagnosed with Hashimoto's is going to be on medication for the rest of their lives. But there are some alternate therapies that can help to reduce stress, and massage is one of those.
