My Thyroid Story

I’ve been in your shoes.
After two hospital trips, 12 doctors’ office visits, years of fatigue, hair loss, weight fluctuations, hot flashes, chills, anxiety attacks and extreme digestive upheavals, I was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. My “adventures” with Hashimoto’s began a few years ago after giving birth to my son. For 3 years, I felt decimated. After being told by doctor after doctor that it was all in my head, that it was “just stress,” that I was becoming a hypochondriac, I’d had enough.

Would I ever feel better?
I was just 35 and discouraged by the diagnosis, afraid it meant that I’d never be the wife and mother I wanted to be. My son was just two years old at the time and he needed a mom with energy and vitality. The one positive of finally getting diagnosed, was that someone was finally acknowledging my condition was real and now I could do something about it.

However, I was terribly disappointed with the results of conventional treatment options, like synthetic hormones and drugs for depression and cholesterol. I wanted to actually heal my thyroid, not just use medications as a band-aid.

Luckily, the doctor who diagnosed me felt the same. He believed that thyroid medications were temporary solutions that could actually create more side effects and that would make the thyroid function less. The research I had done had shown that too.

I felt alone.
So I searched for a real and practical solution – somedays I felt like I was swimming upstream. I tried everything – supplement after supplement, diet after diet, and therapy after therapy. It cost me thousands and thousands of dollars in the process. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to find the answers when they were all so simple.

Feeling alone in the process and frustrated from all the time and money I had to spend to get better made me realize that something BIG needed to change in thyroid care. There was no real care out there – doctors weren’t listening and no one had an answer. And, since I couldn’t find anyone else out there providing real, practical solutions, I decided to make it my life’s mission to provide the resources and programs I wish I’d had when I was diagnosed.

Taking my life back from thyroid disease was the best decision I ever made.
What I’ve learned through this process is that there are powerful yet simple steps that can be taken to reverse thyroid conditions and eliminate symptoms completely. It’s not hard to take your life back from thyroid disease, you just have to make a commitment to yourself, take action, and know you’re worth it. You deserve the love and care you give to everyone else in your life.

Making the necessary diet and lifestyle changes took a little time and some effort but it completely paid off for me. I learned to work with my body, to love and trust it again, and restore its balance through daily healing practices. Now I’ve been symptom-free for years now and have worked with thousands of women to avoid, wean down or completely eliminate thyroid medications…and to learn to love their bodies so they are symptom-free too!

Love is all you need
I know you may have lost faith in your body, that you feel attacked by it. I spent months feeling depressed and disappointed that, at such a young age, my body had turned on me. That’s when I realized that a thyroid or autoimmune disease is exactly that, the body unintentionally attacking itself….signaling that it needs your attention, true nourishment and love.

So I ask you, are you ready to love your body back to health? I invite you to start this gentle but transformative journey by first, learning about leaky gut (it’s one of the foundational steps to healing). Next, see what happened to me after my gut was completely healed. (Good stuff here!)  Plus, I’d love to offer you a free digital copy of my book, Healing Hashimoto’s Naturally.

Between the resources on the blog and taking advantage of the free thyroid assessment and report, you’ll find the answers you’ve been looking for and I truly look forward to joining you on your journey to vibrant health!

With love,
