In March of 2019, my life took an unexpected detour when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. It was a particularly scary experience that landed me in an ambulance, the ER, and ultimately in the hospital overnight. I share more of that story here.
My journey to healing my autoimmune disease has not been a straightforward path, and there were many setbacks along that way, especially during a period when I was under the medical care of a physician who just wasn’t a good match to my beliefs around healing. There are SO many things I learned during that process that I share here if you or anyone you love is struggling to find true health.
Once I empowered myself to make a change and “break up” with my poorly matched endocrinologist, I was able to align with a more holistic practitioner and found the answers to fully resolve my thyroid disease and send my autoimmune illness into remission.
When I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, I was told it was a forever disease that would have to be managed with drugs for the remainder of my life, and being the strong-willed, feisty lass that I am, I just wasn’t going to take that flawed perspective as “truth”. I was determined to prove my ex-doctor wrong and truly get to the root cause of my illness.
I tried about everything I could to facilitate my body coming back to wellness, and in the course of about 18 months, I have found 4 pivotal cornerstones to my remission.
