Living With Low Thyroid
After 19 years successfully treating women with persistent low thyroid symptoms, I’m still amazed how often obvious solutions are staring us right in the face. What I’ve learned is many healthcare providers do the bare minimum in testing, and they don’t think out the box nearly enough. You are not doomed. This is NOT your NEW normal. You Were Born To Heal 🌺
Feeling Stuck in Your Illness
Many women are stuck in their disease and feel the monotony of their symptoms. One thing I tend to pick up on is the fact that many of these patients take ownership of their disease or symptom. This means they start to identify as the disease or symptom and it becomes who they are. Watch today's video to learn how I teach women to overcome being stuck in their disease process by changing the way they speak to themselves. You Were Born To Heal 🌺
Health Care’s #1 Flaw
You can’t change what you can’t see. Many people struggle with their health because they can’t see what’s actually wrong. Interestingly, many people have hidden health problems, because they only evaluate their health status by how they feel. The culprit? Outdated & incomplete diagnostic testing. This phenomenon is rampant not only in Western Medicine, but also Alternative Medicine as well. Imagine if you had 9 things causing your health problems and your healthcare provider has only found 5. Happens ALL. The. Time. Here is a list of 9 tests that are a MUST in today’s world. Comprehensive blood labs (at least 100 markers should be run) Advanced urinalysis (not talking about the standard Pee-In-A-Cup test) Salivary Testing Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (not the typical test) Genetic testing for biotoxin illness susceptibility Mycotoxin Testing Heavy Metals Environmental Toxins Multiple tissue antibody & autoimmune screening DEMAND MORE!

Understanding Dietary Fats and Their Effects on the Thyroid
Dietary fat has erroneously been made the villain to a point that it has created a health crisis. Most Americans and certainly almost all women suffering from low thyroid are deficient in the essential fats.
