I am very excited to announce and introduce my new website, Thyroid Truths! After years of living with hypothyroid myself, and treating countless patients with thyroid disease I have created Thyroid Truths. This is your guide to losing weight and feeling great while living with hypothyroidism. I have built this in hopes that the knowledge helps you as much as it has helped me. Thyroid Truths is designed to provide you with a database of information, resources and videos to help to you with your thyroid health.
When I was in my early 20’s, despite a healthy diet and active lifestyle, I was gaining weight, my face was puffy, my periods began to be very painful and I was constantly cold. My MD kept telling me that my blood work was fine, I was healthy.
But deep down I knew SOMETHING was going on- and I suspected it was thyroid.
Finally, at the age of 27, I found out the truth. I had a “complete thyroid panel” collected that revealed I had Hashimoto’s hypothyroid, a common auto-immune condition that causes anti-bodies to attack the thyroid. By this time, my TSH had also increased and I needed medication to help my situation. I was frustrated and angry after learning that if I had the complete thyroid panel done earlier, it may have shown the elevated antibodies (even though my TSH was normal) and I might have been able to prevent going on life-long medication! Nonetheless I began to learn as much as possible about thyroid disease. Combining my medical background with my passion for natural approaches, I can happily report that I have greatly improved my health and energy levels.
Did you know that 1 in 8 woman will develop a thyroid condition over the course of their lifetime? Do you think you could be part of this statistic? Take this quiz on the thyroid truths page to find out!
As the website grows, it will contain free information, recipes, e-books and online courses to help you life your best life while living with hypothyroidism.
I am looking forward to hearing your feedback about the new site! If you know someone in your life that could benefit from this thyroid information, please pass it along!
