Hypothyroidism

Finding the root cause...


I have a doctor friend and I asked him...

"What can you tell me about Hypothyroidism?"

... and he said...

"If you are hypothyroid, they'll put you on thyroid hormones for the rest of your life..."

... and for some reason, I just didn't want to believe that...

Not the take hormones part...

... but the "for the rest of your life" part...

Hypothyroidism is rough!

I desperately wanted my normal life back...

... so I started to research and wanted to figure out why I was going through this...

What was the cause?

Found so much conflicting information online...

I picked up the book Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and treating the root cause by Dr Izabella Wentz...

... and I also signed up to watched her documentary "the thyroid secret"

I then started to understand that high TSH is not the only way you can experience hypothyroidism...

I started meeting people who are hypothyroid because they've had their thyroid removed (total thyroidectomy)...

Others had low vitamin D...

Some had high TSH...

High cortisol...

... and even some with high cholesterol...

Different issues needing different solutions... except for one that seems to be shared in common... I'll talk about this later...

Once I started to understand my root cause, I started finding the right solutions for me...

I started to understand what I needed to do to get my energy back and start losing weight again...

#1 I knew that I needed to make sure my body was producing thyroid hormone...

This is where the journey began... This is one of the first things I did that helped me get my energy back...
