Do you have issues with your thyroid? Learn more at this week's online Hashimoto's Institute, featuring leading experts like Izabella Wentz, Pharm D., author of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause.
Yesterday I revealed that (much to my surprise) I was diagnosed as having hypothyroidism when my test results came back with a TSH of over 14. Earlier this year, another physician ordered more tests and the results came back with high levels of both types of thyroid antibodies. Diagnosis: Hashimoto's.
Since I'm not the type of person who gets sick or takes medications, I'm on a quest to cure this autoimmune condition through even better eating and lifestyle habits.
If you know me, I'm already a real food fanatic and have been for pretty much all of my life. I gave up fast food in 2003. So to send the Hashimoto's away, I've had to step up my game and learn even more about what I'm eating and how it affects my body.
If you want to follow my quest, sign-up for my email newsletter. The newsletter will be about a lot more than just thyroid issues or Hashimoto's, but I'll include snippets of details about how I'm changing my eating habits to strengthen my thyroid and, perhaps more importantly, stop my body from attacking my thyroid.
