Dr Gil Kajiki, Natural Rx for Thyroid/AutoImmune Conditions.

Sunday, June 19th, 2016


My guests next Saturday, Dr Gil Kajiki is the founder of the Valley Thyroid Institute. He graduated from the Pasadena College of Chiropractic and has been a chiropractor for 30 years. The main focus of his practice is thyroid and Auto Immune conditions.

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.

With his roots in chiropractic-biophysics, Dr. Kajiki was busy helping patients in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California with their spinal structural corrective care when 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.

Dr. Kajiki has been interviewed several times on Lisa Garr’s “The Aware Show”, heard on KPFK. Garr (also a Hashimoto’s patient), collaborated with Dr. Kajiki on an educational 5 DVD series of self-help for patients with chronic thyroid problems called “The Thyroid Mystery Solved”.

Are Herbal Treatments Effective for Postmenopausal Symptoms?

Friday, January 18th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new review published in The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist (TOG) concluded that herbal and complementary medicines  could be recommended as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT).  The review outlined the advantages and limitations of both approaches.  Menopause is associated with estrogen deficiency that can cause an increase in vasomotor symptoms (hot flashed), genitourinary symptoms (vaginal dryness, sexual dysfunction, frequent urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence), and musculoskeletal symptoms (joint pain), and sleep and mood disturbances. Hot flashes is a common symptom that approximately two thirds of postmeniopausal women experience and 20% experience for up to 15 years. HRT is the most effective treatment for hot flashes and will improve symptoms for up to 90% of the women but has side effects such as ;links to breast cancer, blood clots, stroke, and cardiovascular problems.  The reviewer said as mqny as 50 to 75% of the postmenopausal women use herbal options , and of the complementary therapies, soy, red clover and black cohost have been the most investigated. Soy is the most common plant containing estrogen, found naturally in food and supplements  and research shows a reduction in hot flush symptoms ranging from 20 to 55%. Red clover also contains estrogen,  and black cohosh, a plant. both have been shown to reduce hot flush. The author recommended herbs because there are no significant adverse side effects as long as they are used by women who do not have a history of breast cancer, or are not at high risk for breast cancer, and are not taking tamoxifen. However, since herbs are not regulated in may countries the contents of a given product can vary from sample to sample.
