How to get more energy, sleep better, and feel better...

I have a friend who happens to be a doctor… and I remember the first time I asked him “what can you tell me about hypothyroidism?”

He said (as a friend to a friend) “if you have hypothyroidism they’ll put you on thyroid hormones and you’ll have to take them for the rest of your life”...

That’s it.

That’s all there was to it…

In... his...mind…

… as seems to be in the minds of most doctors...

In my mind, I refused to accept that as my faith.

Inside, I shook my head “no”... and said “uh uh” to myself. 

No way this will be a “forever” thing. 

The idea of going through this as long as I was alive was a nightmare.

Hypothyroidism is ROUGH to live with.

Some days are worse than others.

A forever thing?

No way...

I needed to figure something out.

If I really need hormones, then sure, I’ll take supplements but most importantly I wanted to know why my body wasn’t producing hormones and what to do about it.

So when I finally figured it out, I had my biggest epiphany about hypothyroidism… the definition.

See I believe there is a huge flaw in the definition of hypothyroidism “underactive thyroid disease - meaning the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough hormones”

Here’s why I think it’s flawed…

If the ONLY problem was an underactive thyroid then taking more hormones should fix it right?

… but that’s not always the case.

I’ve met so many people who are losing their hair, have brittle nails, are tired all the time, have brain fog and keep gaining weight even though their lab test numbers are normal… 

(It seems like this is the only goal doctors have… to get your numbers to be normal, nevermind how you feel)

I don’t know if this is the case for most, but the doctors I went to didn’t listen to me about my symptoms… it was all about the lab numbers. 

Everything else was just in my head… “psychosomatic” they call it.

The only solutions doctors offered were to medicate, radiate or cut.

I think I’ll keep my thyroid, thank you.

That’s when I realized my doctor’s ability to help me had ended...

If I wanted to get my energy back and lose weight again, I needed to go explore on my own.

Why is it that so many people are still fatigued, losing their hair, and gaining weight out of control even after taking thyroid hormones??

I remember back in 2012… I put on 32 pounds out of nowhere… this was just before the holidays too!... by the time holidays were over I was probably closer to 46 pounds heavier than I had been just a few weeks ago!

That’s when I came across a hypothyroidism education program that talked about how the thyroid works. It pointed out that the thyroid produces primarily T4 hormone, but THE LIVER converts T4 into T3… 

(Hint: The body functions on T3 primarily, not T4)...

So even though the thyroid produces thyroid hormone, the liver makes it “active”...

That’s when I understood the thyroid wasn't the only one to blame...

... because if my liver was not functioning properly converting T4 into T3, I would become fatigued and gained weight out of control.

That’s why in my opinion... hear... me... out...

It...

Is... 

Not... 

... “Just” an underactive thyroid…

It could be… 

... but...

I have found it could be an underactive thyroid or a liver malfunction or BOTH… but not “just the thyroid”.

Makes sense?

It doesn’t end there, though...

Once the liver converts the thyroid hormone T4 into T3, it needs to enter the bloodstream and get delivered to the cells of your body… this is where different toxins and hormone imbalances keep your body from using the thyroid hormone it just made.

Again, it’s not just the thyroid you need to worry about. There’s the liver, toxins, gut problems… 

I don’t even want to get into all the digestive issues and allergies I went through before I figured this out… 

... including breaking out in hives with over ⅔… maybe ¾ of my body attacking itself...

elevated liver enzymes autoimmune hives

It was painful just to watch.

That’s how I started to understand why there are many people who take T4 hormones and still feel like crap. 

Even people who switch to taking both T4 and T3 may still be struggling with autoimmune problems, hair loss, weight and fatigue. That’s because they are not addressing the root cause.

Is it the thyroid?
Is it the liver?
Is it toxins?
Is it your gut?
Is it the active thyroid hormones T3 turning into “reverse T3”?

This is more or less the path I had to go through… my journey involved answering these and other questions for myself.

So if you take thyroid hormones and feel good, then congratulations, you’re set.

… but if you feel tired all the time, have a hard time falling asleep, have brain fog or anxiety then you can go through our “Energy Bootcamp” to start getting your energy back, sleep better, and feel better...

Without this information, most people with hypothyroidism have no shot at getting better and here’s why…

When people reach out to me and ask for help, the first question I ask them is “Do you know which foods help you produce hormones? And which inhibit hormone production?”

Most say “no”

(it’s not goitrogenic foods by the way)

That’s why I put together "Beer Diet Project" to show you how to optimize your microbiome to get more energy, sleep better and feel better...

When you go through Beer Diet Project you'll learn...

  • The 3 things you must add to your diet to get your energy back and why supplements don't work when you have gut issues like Hashimoto's, leaky gut, etc.
  • Why low thyroid function isn't what makes you feel tired all the time... do this instead to improve your sleep and wake up with more energy...
  • If your hair is thinning and falling out in clumps, you're likely deficient in this one nutrient... (plus the best source to get it from)
  • Energy thieves... what really causes chronic fatigue and what to do about it...

You'll be learning the foundation and foods to eat to help your body produce hormones, especially thyroid hormones which is key to eliminating fatigue for good.

Just imagine waking up with so much energy it forces you to become active again (I have a lot of nephews 2-8 year olds who used to wear me out… now I can play with them and wear THEM out)

Imagine fitting in your clothes again and making brain fog a thing of the past.

If you go hire a good functional medicine practitioner it'll cost you upwards of $7,000 to $8,000...

... and they are not very effective programs (I get many people going through other programs and I correct many mistakes)... 

Those programs would be worth it if they actually helped you function, not feel like you're going to faint, sleep good and wake up feeling good...

I was personally spending thousands on supplements that didn't work...

Frustrated with all the confusion online (do this, don't do that)... until I finally figured out what works to get more energy...

... but don't take it from me...

Here's what people who have gone through my programs are saying...

As you can see... I absolutely LOVE to hear other people's success stories!
