As a young mother, I was tired. Actually, I was beyond tired. I was completely exhausted! Every. Single. Day. I was so wiped out that I often fell asleep mid-sentence as I was reading books to my kids after lunch. When I finally woke up, I would sit there wondering why I couldn’t keep pace with everyone around me. I wondered if I was just being lazy or if there was something wrong with me. Why did it take me so long to gather up enough energy to peel myself off the couch and go do something as simple as fold the laundry?
Eventually, I was done with it. I was fed up with my lack of energy, not to mention my constant irritability, hair loss, and erratic cycles. I really began to worry about what would happen if I didn’t DO something. If I was feeling that crummy in my twenties, what kind of a train wreck was I going to be when I hit forty? How unbearable would I be when I hit menopause???
I reached out to a local naturopath for help and discovered that most of my symptoms were being driven by hypothyroidism. He put me on a natural thyroid medication which helped me to feel better initially, but I was still left wondering if there was anything else I could do to actually heal my thyroid. It wasn’t until several years later that I finally began to find the answers I was looking for. I discovered that there were things I could do, and that it was about SO MUCH MORE than simply taking medication! I learned that it was a multi-faceted process of working with my body rather than against it, and that I needed support and guidance to walk all the way through that process.
It certainly didn’t happen overnight, but every step of the journey was worth it. Today I feel upbeat, energetic, and more hormonally balanced than ever before! (I’ve even been able to completely wean off of my thyroid medication under the supervision of my doctor.) I am so grateful every day that I was able to discover the keys to healing my thyroid and for the beautiful opportunity I now have to share those very same keys with others who are looking for real answers to their struggle with hypothyroidism.
