Slow metabolism and weight loss

Having a slow metabolism can be so frustrating! Weight loss is difficult and you feel like you are spinning in this viscous cycle trying to lose weight and keep your energy levels up. 

In my new video I discuss:

* What foods can help you with your weight loss
* What foods will make your metabolism worse
* Why certain foods can cause weight gain

If you are having a difficult time losing weight (or you continue to gain weight) then you must consider your metabolic rate and eat for increasing that metabolic rate. The thyroid hormone can have so many effects on the body so eating for your metabolic rate is crucial to keeping symptoms away for a slow thyroid or potential hypothyroidism.  

How do you do that? Can you actually increase your metabolism by eating for your metabolic rate? I will show you in this
video! 

I hope you learned a thing or two from why it is so​ to be mindful of your eating style so that your thyroid is happy and so that weight loss is much easier, especially if you have a hypothyroidism diagnosis. 

​So many women suffer from symptoms of a low thyroid (without a diagnosis) and their eating style plays such a big role in this.  

If you need help with that, then please reach out to me.  And give me a "heck yeah" below if you are eating clean now yourself.

How I deal with a slow thyroid

Have you ever wondered if anyone else suffers like you do with a slow thyroid? And what they do for it?  Thyroid symptoms (especially in women) can be unbearable!  And weight gain, unfortunately, is usually at the top of the list of thyroid effects in women.

This video will show you how I deal with a slow thyroid on a daily basis as well as the battles that I have had over the years too.  Hypothyroidism and weight gain go together so often so I love to talk about my battles with this so I can help you on your journey.

Weight loss is difficult with a slow thyroid so I discuss what I do to help with this as well some nutrition tips and the type of symptoms that I deal with.

I have felt alone at times on this journey with my thyroid and that no one could relate so I thought this was a great way to show you that you are not alone on your journey. And that the symptoms that you are having with a low and slow thyroid are normal and can be addressed.  

A slow thyroid isn't easy to handle so watch this video to learn some of the tricks that I have learned over the years in my practice to keep it happy and healthy.

What the heck does eating clean mean?

The term "clean eating" has become very popular in the health community, especially when it comes to weight loss and a slow thyroid. 

Clean eating is a diet pattern that focuses on fresh, whole foods. This lifestyle can be easy and enjoyable as long as you follow a few general guidelines. 

Someone who suffers from hypothyroidism absolutely knows that eating foods that aren't "clean" and "healthy" will make them feel pretty miserable and even cause weight gain. 

If you have a sluggish thyroid (or have even been diagnosed with hypothyroidism), I would take extra care to watch what you are eating.  Weight gain is such a common symptom with a slow thyroid (or hypothyroidism).  

Do you try to eat clean the majority of the time?

Watch this video to learn:
* Why it is important to eat cleaner
* What does clean eating actually mean
* What you can do to lose weight by eating cleaner

Clean eating doesn't have anything to do with food being clean or dirty.
It simply involves choosing minimally processed, real foods that provide maximal nutritional benefits. This will make your body (especially your thyroid) happy!   
The idea is to consume foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. 

Eating clean isn't easy....I get that. But your metabolism (and your thyroid) will be happier with a cleaner eating style.  

I hope you learned a thing or two from why it is so important to learn what healthy eating looks, especially if you suffer from a slow thyroid!  Symptoms of a slow thyroid are no fun so I highly recommend you to do your best to nourish it with clean and healthy foods. 

If you need help with that, then please reach out to me.  And give me a "heck yeah" below if you are eating clean now yourself.

How to keep the thyroid happy!

With the current state of affairs with the coronavirus, it is critical to stay alert with keeping your thyroid healthy, especially if you suffer from a thyroid condition like hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's.

Thyroid symptoms can vary but the most common ones that I see in women are fatigue, weight gain and difficulty losing weight, hair loss, constipation, and mood swings.  And by the way, you don't need to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism to have these symptoms.  

𝑫𝒐 π’šπ’π’– 𝒏𝒆𝒆𝒅 π’”π’π’Žπ’† π’•π’Šπ’‘π’” 𝒕𝒐 π’Žπ’‚π’Šπ’π’•π’‚π’Šπ’ 𝒂 π’‰π’†π’‚π’π’•π’‰π’š 𝒂𝒏𝒅 π’‰π’‚π’‘π’‘π’š π’Žπ’†π’•π’‚π’ƒπ’π’π’Šπ’”π’Ž? π‘Ήπ’†π’‚𝒄𝒉 𝒐𝒖𝒕 π’Šπ’‡ π’šπ’π’– 𝒏𝒆𝒆𝒅 𝒉𝒆𝒍𝒑 π’˜π’Šπ’•π’‰ π’•π’‰π’Šπ’”!

In this
video I discuss:
* A few tips that can help keep your thyroid healthy during this time
* Why this is important
* What does oxidative stress do to your body

Anti-oxidants are super important for the thyroid, especially under a stressful state. When the body is overloaded with oxidative stress, the thyroid is a target for oxalates.  This will cause the thyroid to slow down and give you symptoms of a low thyroid, especially in women. 

Exercise can create lean muscle mass which can help control how your thyroid hormone regulates your body.  This can be such an easy fix by just lifting some weights and trying some interval training to decrease any slow thyroid symptoms. 

Adequate iodine intake is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones. Your thyroid hormones (T4 and T3) are named due to the number of iodine molecules they possess.  This is why iodine deficiency is so common to see when you have a slow thyroid or hypothyroidism.  

I hope you learned why it is so important to maintain a healthy thyroid. Hopefully, it has helped you to prioritize keeping your thyroid healthy so that you can feel good, energized, and that you can find the solutions to your health problems.

If you need help with that, then please reach out to me.

How some supplements can make your metabolism worse!

I see a lot of people taking supplements based off of a google search or their neighbor or friend is taking it....but they aren't doing the research on any side effects. This is why I created my program to help women get the answers they need help them deal with the symptoms of a slow thyroid.  

It is so common to see weight gain with a slow thyroid but something that needs to be addressed is the type of supplements that you are taking.  This can be a big connection to your slow thyroid symptoms and even your weight gain. 

In this video I will discuss:

* What supplements might be causing more harm than good
* Why they can mess with your metabolism
* The connection of some supplements with the thyroid

Vitamin D supplementation can lower your thyroid function and your metabolism.  Excess zinc can lower your sodium and bottom out your adrenal glands. Copper can deplete your potassium which is necessary for thyroid function and a healthy metabolism.

These are just a few that I have seen that can create thyroid symptoms in women.  Watch my video to learn more about the supplements that need you need to be cautious with in order to keep that thyroid and metabolism functioning optimally.

I hope you learned a thing or two why you need to do your due diligence and figure out why you are taking a supplement and if you actually need it.

You don’t need a diagnosis to have a slow thyroid

Unfortunately it is so common for women to be told that they need to workout more or eat less because their thyroid is just fine and not causing their weight gain, lack of energy, or hair falling out.

​These are some of the most common symptoms in women when it comes to a sluggish thyroid.  Women are told so often that their weight gain has nothing to do with their thyroid.  Or that it isn't affecting their hormones at all.  

In this video I will discuss:
* Why blood testing may not be the only answer
* How hair testing can give more answers
* What minerals can cause issues with your thyroid

There are so many things that play into how your thyroid is functioning. A blood test alone usually isn't enough to help improve your metabolism. Lifestyle and supplements are key parts of boosting that slow metabolic rate.

Women should never have to suffer from symptoms of low thyroid function.  And you definitely don't need a "hypothyroidism" diagnosis to address your slow metabolism. 

I hope you learned why it is so important to dig for more answers when you are that your thyroid and metabolism is just fine. Hopefully, it has helped you to prioritize keeping your thyroid healthy so that you can lose the weight that won't budge and feel better!

Victim Mode and Healing

π•Žβ„π• 𝕍𝕀ℂ𝕋𝕀𝕄 𝕄𝕆𝔻𝔼 ℂ𝔸ℕ 𝕀ℕℍ𝕀𝔹𝕀𝕋 ℍ𝔼𝔸𝕃𝕀ℕ𝔾

In my practice, it is super common to see victimization because a lot of the women that come to me are dealing with a slow thyroid with weight issues. They can't lose weight or they're having adrenal issues.  They get into a rut where they can't stop telling themselves that it is their fault, or this is just how life is for them, or they place blame on others. 

In this video I will discuss:

* Why it so important to recognize victim mode

* How playing "victim" can affect healing

* What you can do to help get out of victim mode

When you are trying to heal your body and things are happening like you want them to it is so easy to fall into the "victim" mode.   I see it very often with my female clients that are dealing with thyroid stuff. And it's easy to do that because dealing with thyroid stuff takes a lot of energy and a lot of time to heal.

Avoiding the trap of falling into β€œvictim” mode can naturally boost your thyroid is so many ways.  I have seen it actually help control the thyroid and keep it healthy!  π•π”Όπ•Šβ€¦..π•šπ•₯ ℂ𝔸ℕ π•™π•’π•‘π•‘π•–π•Ÿ!

The big reason why I created my thyroid program because I want women to NEVER feel alone. I want them to feel they have a community and like they have someone to talk to.

And that's why I put so much energy into this too, because I went through this. I felt alone all the time. I felt like I had no one to talk to. No one would listen to me. No one could relate to me. 

I wasn’t sure how what to do for low thyroid treatment.  I wasn’t sure on how to control my thyroid. There are so many pieces to this, but avoiding β€œvictim” mode is such a massive part that is ignored over and over.  I know this…….firsthand!

Remember this....you have to realize that the stage that you're in is temporary. 

​Don't stop pushing forward and always.......give yourself some room to be human.

I highly recommend Joe Dispenza's book, "π”Ήπ•£π•–π•’π•œπ•šπ•Ÿπ•˜ π•₯𝕙𝕖 β„π•’π•“π•šπ•₯ 𝕠𝕗 π”Ήπ•–π•šπ•Ÿπ•˜ 𝕐𝕠𝕦𝕣𝕀𝕖𝕝𝕗". Such an amazing tool that helped me through some rough times! 

I hope you learned a thing or two why it's so important to not fall into the trap of "victim" mode.  Hopefully, it has helped you to break free of some habits that will only hold you back on your healing journey.

If you need help with that, then please reach out to me.  And give me a β€œhell yeahhhhhh” if you have been through this yourself!

How Mineral Testing Can Improve A Slow Thyroid

I have had so many tests done on myself over the last 20 years, but one test that really is a game changer for my thyroid is mineral testing. Mineral testing has been something that I recently added to my practice last year.

In this video I will discuss:
* What minerals are important to assess for thyroid function
* How they affect the thyroid
* Why I use hair tissue testing to assess minerals

This is such an important thing that I added and I'm so grateful that I did. I have seen so many women get so much better by looking at their minerals, particularly associated with the thyroid.  

This is such a key way to keep the thyroid healthy and even a way to prevent hypothyroidism.

I don’t see minerals addressed very much when it comes to the thyroid. So I started doing the testing actually on myself a few years because I suffer from hypothyroidism.  After doing the testing several years ago, I really noticed big, big changes…..changes that I couldn't get from medication or from going to numerous doctors.  So I thought, why not? I'm going to add this to my practice.  I would love to share ways that can help naturally boost the thyroid. 

So I really dug in deep and learned more about it and it really has helped my practice and helped so many women. So I wanted to shed some light on this and give you some reasons why I think this is one of the most important things when you are looking how to keep your thyroid healthy.

So first and foremost, every time you go get your blood drawn, you're going to get your TSH. Most doctors are just going to check only TSH…..which is unfortunate because we need to see what Free T3 and Free T3 (and a few other things) are doing. 

​The reason I bring this up is because some of their minerals are associated with this. 

So one mineral that absolutely needs to be looked at is potassium. The reason that I need I need to see what these levels are doing from a hair test is because the hair test is going to give me an idea over the last three months……what has been going on. 

A blood test is going to give me a snapshot right now. I want to know what it's been doing for the last three months because it's going to give me a better average. So the hair sample that you send in will give me the average over the  last three months. 

Potassium is super important for helping with the conversion of your inactive thyroid hormone (T4) to active thyroid hormone (T3).

​I have seen so many women that either their doctor won't check anything other than TSH because  they really don't know what to do with T3 and T4. Or they do get their test results back and their doctor says ”Everything looks fine. No big deal. We don't need to look at anything else.”

But what if you have a conversion issue and you can't convert T4 over to T3.   This is obviously is one of the most important things with thyroid health. This such a simple and effective way to control your thyroid and to keep your thyroid healthy. Potassium's really important for this. It's one of the big drivers for conversion!  

​So if your potassium levels are bottomed out (and I would say 99% of the women that I see that do the hair test with me have tanked potassium)…..but it is never addressed, you are missing out on a very crucial part of preventing hypothyroidism and even using this as a low thyroid treatment. 

Unfortunately, it's not a mineral that budges very easily. It takes a lot of work and a lot of effort to move it!  There are specific patterns and ways to boost it.  But you can’t just blindly start taking potassium.  There also is a certain form of potassium that is better than others.

Another important one to address is calcium.  Calcium is really important for bone health. Unfortunately, when I get a hair test back and I see calcium levels elevated….I know this a set up for a sluggish thyroid.  When calcium is elevated in your hair, it's everywhere else. It's out of your bone and teeth, which is where Calcium is supposed to be. Unfortunately, calcium is a really stupid mineral and it doesn't know how to get back into the bone and teeth. So if it's elevated on a hair test, it's not going away on its own. It's going to stay elevated.   And so what is the first thing calcium does when it's elevated?

​It goes right to the thyroid and it tells the thyroid to slow the hell down.  

This is a scenario where you could take thyroid medication all day long and not feel any better. You need to know if Calcium is inhibiting your thyroid function.  How can you boost your thyroid with medication when it is actually being inhibited by Calcium?

Even on functional lab results…….you may look normal on that, but it doesn't mean that your minerals are still functioning normally. So that's why every woman that comes to suspecting a thyroid issues….they will always  get a hair test first no matter what!  The minerals are going to be your driving force.

The other one that I also want to see is selenium. Selenium is a really important mineral for helping boost thyroid function. I typically will see selenium low when I also see potassium low and calcium elevated. This is such a common patter to see with a sluggish thyroid.  Again, knowing the selenium can only help to naturally boost the thyroid.

As you can see, I am adamant about checking minerals for the bigger picture of thyroid function.  I see so many woman who are told their blood test results look normal.  Or they go from doctor to doctor with no results.  You may even be taking thyroid medication but you still feel awful! 

This is why you need to keep digging!  What are your minerals doing? 

I hope you learned a thing or two why it is important to check your minerals when looking at a slow or sluggish thyroid. Hopefully, it has helped you to prioritize keeping your thyroid healthy so that you can be energized, healthy and that you can find the solutions to your thyroid problems.

If you need help with that, then please reach out to me.  And give me a β€œhell yeahhhhhh” if you have been through this yourself!

Motivational Tips

This is a strange time right now with the coronavirus lurking. So I wanted to share with you some of my motivational tips that may help you right now.

In this video I will discuss:
* What motivational tips can help you on your health journey
* How to keep things simple
* Why it's okay to forgive yourself

So first and foremost is whenever you're making changes, make them very simple. When you first start, you will overwhelm yourself to death. If you start making these astronomical goals and kind of almost unrealistic ones......then you just end up beating yourself up because it was too unrealistic. It was too big.

And when you're making your goals......make sure you're making them specific for you. It shouldn't be based off of your significant other.

Another super important ons is to feel good about yourself! So if you have people around you that make you really feel like shit, they are not good people for you. It doesn't mean that they're bad people. It just means that they just don't help you.

If you know a certain food or certain situations that cause you to overeat, try to avoid those! Know your triggers. This will only help keep your body get and stay healthy and nourishing foods can help boost your thyroid as well.

Find your support system. It is very, very important to have a support system when you are just trying to get healthy. And if you are trying to heal your thyroid, this is going to be SUPER important!

One of my favorites....FORGIVE YOURSELF! You can't dwell on it. The hard part is a lot of people fall off the wagon and you don't recover from it. So you just keep on going down a rabbit hole and eat bad!

To my thyroid ladies......these tips will absolutely help boost your thyroid and can help prevent hypothyroidism even. I am a huge advocate at controlling the thyroid the best that you can.

I hope you learned some tips to help keep you motivated right now. Hopefully, it has helped you to prioritize keeping your body healthy (especially your thyroid) so that you can be energized and happy! If you need help with that, then please get in touch. And give me a β€œhell yeah” if you need some motivation right now!
