Trying to get through the day, I stopped living life. Living through the thought of tomorrow, not living, just waiting, what am I waiting for, why won’t my legs move, why am I always cold? Always thirsty, always peeing, but never going number 2, gaining weight without a reason? Every minute feels like an hour, every hour feels like a day, every day feels like forever…Life feels like it has stopped. Why am I simply waiting?
“You don’t have thyroid issues, because your TSH is fine” – Your Doctor.
SURPRISE….that is not entirely true…
Did you know that you can have thyroid disease despite having a normal TSH. Your body could be building antibodies to attack your thyroid and can show up years before it actually affects your TSH. So always ask your doctor to check your antibodies, to find out the root cause of why you feel stuck…and stop waiting!
The fire of Hashimotos is keeping you waiting and stuck. By lowering your fire, you have the capability to fly and fly higher than you have ever imagined!
Check out all the tools in your tool-belt! I always start with lifestyle tips, a baseline labs that you can ask your doctor (Complete blood panel (CBC), complete metabolic panel (CMP), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and its antibodies (antithyroglobuin antibodies and anti-tpo antibody), full thyroid panel with reverse T3, antinuclear antibodies, urine analysis, ferritin, fasting lipids, fasting insulin, HbA1c, B12, magnesium, vitamin D 25OH, hsCRP and homocysteine. Landmarks of healing include feeling better or eliminating all symptoms, reducing antibody count first under 100 then under 35 and regenerating thyroid tissue, but it does take patience and a whole lot of faith, but it’s worth the wait, I promise!
The fire that rages within your gut and and the prison that inflammation has kept you in, has kept you stuck—despite that, look at all you have accomplished! It takes someone very special to have done all that you have done, competing with those who are not fighting a battle within! You are a gem—I can’t say that enough.
Now imagine a life with no fire that burns within, a life full of peace, a life full of energy, a life full of unlimited possibilities—what can you accomplish, what will you do? OOO it’s already giving me goose bumps because the sky’s the limit, I can’t wait to watch you fly! With no other distractions and nothing to drag you down, anything you put your mind to could be yours.
Your condition doesn’t have to define you. You can finally take charge of your own health! You are a blessing to this world and those around you. Let’s begin that transformation, implement The Holistic Rx, and finally escape the hamster wheel for good!
The first couple weeks are going to be hard, but once you get the hang of it, as the energy and pain improve, it will not be so bad—it’s actually quite rewarding. I am here for you! We can do this together! Take it one day at a time, one meal at a time! Slowly you will transform into who you were meant to be, the real and authentic you!
Get ready to transform to a more energetic you! Transform to a pain-free you! Transform into a happier you! The ups and downs in your journey will only make you stronger!
You are so worth it, do this for yourself. Haven’t you waited long enough? I have provided you with the information you need to set yourself free—imagine the places you could go! Look out world, here you come!!! You got this—nothing, including gluten can bring you down again!!!!
