My Hypothyroidism Story

Have you ever wondered if anyone else has struggled like you do with a slow thyroid? Or what is is like to suffer with hypothyroidism and what can be done? Then you must watch this video.

In this video, I discuss:
* Why it can be so frustrating dealing with a slow thyroid 
* My own journey and struggles with hypothyroidism 
* Reiterate that you are not alone


I was so exhausted that I needed a new word for tired. I could barely get out of bed and when I did......I wanted to go back to bed within 10 minutes. I couldn't function at work and was struggling just to make it through a day without a nap.

I talk about my thyroid symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, and anxiety.  My hypothyroidism diagnosis ran my life!  

My symptoms continued to get worse and I felt so hopeless.  I had every symptom of slow thyroid as a women and was still told it was all in my head!


In this video, I am real and genuine about my story. I am sharing because I am actually grateful for one of the worst times of my life. It pushed me to dig for answers. And to not give up.

So many doctors dismissed me. And told me that I was crazy! But I knew in my heart that there were more answers.

My hope is that this story inspires you to keep pushing for answers. To not throw in the towel. And more importantly, to know that you are NOT alone. Your slow thyroid doesn't run! Show it who is BOSS like I did!

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

Minerals to boost your metabolism

Did you know that there are minerals that can speed up and slow down your thyroid and metabolism? Do you know how to get them checked? Then you must watch this video.

𝑰 π’˜π’Šπ’π’ 𝒕𝒆𝒂𝒄𝒉 π’šπ’π’–:
* Why minerals are important for your thyroid
* What are some crucial minerals for your thyroid health
* How can you check your minerals

Minerals are like the spark plug for your body! They are needed for the entire body to run. They are needed for millions of enzymes as cofactors, facilitators, inhibitors, and some of them even make up the enzymes themselves.

And because they are involved in virtually every single enzyme reaction in the entire body, their availability and usability will determine how well the human body runs, and, of course, the health experience of that individual.

When your minerals are imbalanced they can create a slow metabolism in the body (slows your thyroid down.) This can create so many thyroid symptoms in women.  

The thyroid hormones can become deficient creating so many thyroid hormone effects including weight gain, fatigue, anxiety and more.

If you feel like you're kind of spinning a hamster wheel when it comes to weight loss and exhaustion (your thyroid health).....I would take a look at your minerals. I see this a such an important missing link.

So what are some important minerals? And how do you get them checked? I will show you in this video!

I hope you learned a thing or two how minerals can impact your thyroid health and your metabolism.  

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

Normal TSH doesn’t mean ‘normal’ thyroid

Have you ever been told that your TSH level for your thyroid looks normal yet you feel terrible? Or do you struggle to have your doctor even check your TSH levels? Then you must watch this video. 

Most people don't know that all thyroid function actually starts in your brain! It is told to send out something called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). This is what a doctor will usually have checked on a blood test.

That TSH goes right to the thyroid and tells it to make some hormones!  This is when it produces T4 and a little bit of T3. The T4 has to be converted over thought to T3 (this is your active thyroid hormone) in order for your body to actually use the hormones.

This is when I see so many women struggling with weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, and so on from hypothyroidism or just a slow thyroid in general.   And you can definitely have normal TSH without a diagnosis of hypothyroidism.  

Watch to learn:

* What is TSH 
* What other markers are important
* What can you do about it


⁠
Unfortunately, I see so many people that have normal TSH so they are told their thyroid looks "normal". But what about your other markers like Free T3 and Free T4 and even Reverse T3? 

Or what about your mineral and metal status, your gut health, and your sleep and stress levels? These all can affect the thyroid! So only checking TSH is a disservice to you! 

So what else do you need checked? And why is this so important for your thyroid health? I will show you in this video!

I hope you learned  why it is so important to keep digging when you are told that you have normal TSH and you still feel terrible with all of the typical hypothyroid symptoms.

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

Tips for Weight Loss in Women

Do you struggle with knowing what to eat for your thyroid? Or do you know what can make you thyroid worse? Then you must watch this video.

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).  

Watch this video to learn:

*What food is best for your thyroid

*What can make your thyroid worse

*How to know what type of eating style is best for your thyroid 

There are so many fad diets, books and advice regarding what to eat to stay healthy! But eating for your thyroid is a complex thing! It is NOT a cookie cutter approach!

Eating certain foods can definitely slow your thyroid down.....with or without a diagnosis of hypothyroidism. And eating certain foods can tell your thyroid to work...to do what is supposed to do!

And your thyroid symptoms can definitely get worse just by the food that you are eating.  Things like weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, and anxiety are some common symptoms of low thyroid, especially in women.

So what are the best foods for your thyroid? And how can you tell what your thyroid needs? I will show you in this video!

I hope you learned a thing or two 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.

Thyroid Hormone Production Made Easy

Your thyroid is a super important part of your everyday function. So much needs to happen to make your thyroid hormones and to keep things efficient in your body.

When I struggled with my slow thyroid, I felt overwhelmed with so much information about the thyroid. It was confusing and sometimes just didn't make sense.

I struggled with so many slow thyroid symptoms long before I had a hypothyroidism diagnosis.  Weight gain and fatigue were at the top of the list!  But I was so confused on what got me there and what the the thyroid hormones actually did for me! 

Watch this video to learn:
* What are thyroid hormones
* How are they made
* How to improve this

I created this video to keep things simple! I want to help you understand the "ins and outs" of your thyroid hormones but in an easy way!

It is hard enough to suffer from a slow thyroid! So understanding how your metabolism can be affected so drastically by your thyroid shouldn't be such a difficult thing.

So what is the simple way to look at thyroid hormone production? I will show you in this video!

I hope you learned a thing or two why it is so important to know what the thyroid hormones actually do for you and what can affect their production as well!

What you aren’t being told about your thyroid blood test results

Have you been told that your thyroid blood results look "normal"? Are you confused on what you even need to have checked on your thyroid blood panel?  Then you must watch this video. 

I have personally been told time and time again that my blood test results for my thyroid were normal. Yet I felt horrible and kept chasing for more answers. 

Watch this video to learn:
* 𝑾𝒉𝒂𝒕 π’šπ’π’– 𝒏𝒆𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒐 π’Œπ’π’π’˜ 𝒂𝒃𝒐𝒖𝒕 π’šπ’π’–π’“ 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒖𝒍𝒕𝒔

* 𝑾𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒕𝒐 π’ˆπ’†π’• π’„π’‰π’†π’„π’Œπ’†π’…

Something that I had to learn after doing tons of research was that lab reference ranges aren't always optimal. 

In fact, they can give you the impression that your results are "normal" despite feeling pretty lousy. These are NOT functional and can leave you frustrated and confused on what to do next.

I was gaining weight, was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, had every thyroid symptom that women can get, yet I kept being told that my thyroid test results looked normal after only a few months of being put on thyroid medication.  

Guess what?  I was miserable! I felt terrible! I knew that something wasn't right!  

So I began to finally see that not every single thing that I was being told about my thyroid was exactly true!  

I knew that the weight gain was NOT normal but that it was normal when you have hypothyroidism.  So then why was this still happening even though all the doctors kept telling me that I was "normal!" 

So what gives? How can this even happen? I will show you in this video!

I hope you learned a thing or two about reading a thyroid blood panel!  And why it is important to get a FULL thyroid panel. Symptoms of a slow thyroid are no fun so I highly recommend you to do your best to keep digging deeper for more answers.

How stress impacts your slow thyroid symptoms

Do you gain weight whenever you are under stress? Or have a really difficult time losing weight when you are stressed out?

Then you must watch this video. I discuss how stress can make a huge impact on exacerbating your thyroid symptoms or create a slow thyroid.

There are a lot of factors that play into gaining weight or an increase in fatigue (common slow thyroid symptoms), but stress can be a very big one that often is ignored.  

Hypothyroidism and weight gain are so common and stress can play such a huge role in this connection.  And you don't have to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism to have a slow thyroid and weight gain. 

Stress causes the thyroid to release cortisol (your fight or flight hormone.) But chronic stress can cause a cascade of events that will tell your thyroid to slow down! Who wants that?!

So how does this happen? And what can you do about it? I will show you in this video!
