Thyroid issues?  Most likely been told you have Hypothyroidism.  Did you know that 95% of women diagnosed with Hypothyroidism actually have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Autoimmune Disease.  And it sucks.  If you have it, you are suffering in a significant way.  Weight gain.  Fatigue.  Hair Loss.  Brain Fog.  Digestive issues. Skin issues.  Joint Pains.  And if that isn’t bad enough, gas and bloating are thrown in there.  And there are so many more symptoms.

It feels like your own personal horror flick doesn’t it? 

I know, I had my own horror flick.  And the shitty thing about it is it really is like a horror movie in that the only outcome is having no control over your life, getting worse as the years go by, missing out on family time, missing out on events with your kids, losing hope and finally accepting that this is all your life will ever be.

But wait.  I know it is October.  The month of all the best horror movies.  But your life, doesn’t have to be one of them.  It doesn’t have to be your own personal horror movie.

Let me ask you a question.

Are you sick and tired yet? 

If the answer is No, there is no point in reading on.  You aren’t ready yet.  If your answer is Yes, I have another question.

Are you ready to make your health a priority?

Before you answer that question, let me tell you why I’m asking the question.  Us Thyroid issue girls have some similar characteristics.  We are driven, overachieving, tenacious, and giving to our detriment.  Why do you think we are in the position that we are in?  We put ourselves last to give everything we have to those we love the most.  It’s what we know to do.  And yet, here we are, no longer able to give in that way.  We have given until we have made ourselves sick.

In order to heal, you must put yourself first.  I know.  I just felt the cringe in your body. I know what that statement just made you feel like because I was there, in those shoes, feeling the same thing.  I didn’t’ realize that by giving so much of myself and not putting myself first, that I was going to forfeit my quality of life.  And forfeit my ability to continue giving to the ones I loved.  To fix it, I had to make myself a priority and you will too.  So, let me ask you that question again.

Are you ready to make your health a priority?

Still cringing.  I get it.  Let me ask you another couple of questions first.

Where will you be in 1 year, 3 years, or 10 years if you do nothing? 

Do you think you are going to get better? 

Well you aren’t.  As a matter of fact, when you have one autoimmune disease, you will develop additional diseases if you do nothing.  It is in fact a death sentence.  It will take 15 or more years off your life.  And if you want to know more about autoimmune disease, you can watch my Autoimmune Sucks Webinar here.  In the webinar, you will understand how the dysfunction and symptoms travel through the systems in your body.  Once your weakest link is attacked by your immune system, it is only a matter of time until it moves to the next weakest link and so on.  There is nothing stopping it.

K, let me ask you the question again.

Are you ready to make your health a priority?

If you are still a No, no point in reading on.  It’s time to evaluate why you don’t value yourself enough.  If your answer is Yes, I have another question.

Are you ready to make the lifestyle changes and get down to the nitty gritty of your triggers?

Well, if you thought you were going to be able to keep doing what you have been doing up to this point, silly, you can’t.  There are changes that are required.  Not all at once, but you do have to make the changes.  I know you are tired and that it is hard.  But what is the alternative?  You will only get worse.  This is why I said you have to become the priority.  Your energy must be devoted to you.  So, are you ready?

You might also be wondering what I mean by triggers.  They are things like food sensitivities, antibiotics, heavy metal toxicity, chemical toxicity, environmental toxicity, leaky gut, hormone dysfunction, gluten, gut infections meaning parasites, bad bacteria, fungus, etc, etc.

You very likely don’t have all these triggers, however you will have your own cocktail of triggers and we must eliminate them to allow your body to heal.  We determine triggers through testing.  We start with the easy stuff and move to the more difficult stuff if needed.

Everybody is an onion; some just have less layers than others. 

Next question.

Are you willing to commit to the time it is going to take?

I ask that question because it isn’t an over night process.  The last thing you want to do is put yourself in an autoimmune storm by moving to quickly.  Your body needs time to heal.  And it takes time to tackle the triggers because you can’t tackle them all at once.  The reality is, it took you a while to get to the place you are in.  It is going to take you a bit of time to get out, but you will.

There is a process for healing. You don’t have to suffer.  You can get your energy back.  You can stop the hair loss.  You can get rid of the skin issues, the gas and bloating, the aches and pains, the brain fog and the tummy issues.  And over time, you might even lose some weight.  Most do.

How exciting is that?

So, are you ready?  Are you ready to dive begin the healing process?
