May 25th is recognized as World Thyroid Day. To be honest, I didn’t know much about my thyroid until I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease.

Over the last 7-years I have immersed myself in learning about and understanding various thyroid conditions. As I result, I have been able to put my own autoimmune thyroid disease into remission and live a vibrant, energetic, and healthy life again!

Throughout this processes, Roy and I have also began to screen many clients in our practice for thyroid related conditions and have been astounded at the rates of thyroid disease that we are seeing. Women are particularly vulnerable, especially during puberty, pregnancy, postpartum, and menopause.

Although we have been observing a dramatic increase in thyroid disease, we have also been thrilled to be able to help so many people to heal their conditions- and some, who are diagnosed early, without the use of thyroid replacement hormone. (Please note that for some individuals, supplemental thyroid hormone is necessary and the goal is ultimately to help you to live a life feeling your very best! But, with that said, thyroid hormone alone never addresses the complete picture.)

As I sit here typing this very newsletter, an email just popped up in front of me with the subject Woo hoo! from a client who was diagnosed with Grave’s Disease this winter. Her email reads “My thyroid levels and antibody levels are all NORMAL! Yea!”.

This is exactly what I am talking about! How cool!

So, in honor of World Thyroid Day, I wanted to again share some of the posts I have written about my own journey back to health after my Hashimoto’s diagnosis. All of these posts contain links to various educational information on thyroid disease.
