Soothe with EFT...

EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique, is one method that I highly recommend for emotional support and overall well-being. EFT is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. This technique is also referred to as ‘tapping’ or psychological acupressure. I have found this technique to be very useful to relieve stress, calm anxiety, and reduce pain. The videos and work of Brad Yates are my chosen resource. Check out the link below to learn more.

Living Well with Thyroid Conditions...

Our thyroid is a complex, butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of our throats. The thyroid is considered the master gland that, when not working properly, can cause a number of health problems. My doctor first diagnosed me with Hashimoto's disease when I was in my late 30's. Hashimoto's refers to hypothyroidism; meaning that my thyroid is under active and my immune system is attacking the gland. This is a long-term chronic condition. There is no cure, inflammation is a concern, and I will take medication as treatment for the rest of my life. I partner with my doctor and take extra steps to improve how I feel. I first published this blog on August 23, 2019. The topic is timely since 12% of the American population lives with a thyroid condition, 60% of them are unaware of the problem, and women are five to eight times more likely to be affected.

Seeing my doctor regularly, candidly discussing any and all symptoms, monitoring my blood work, and modifying the dosage of my medication based on my doctor's recommendations are CRUCIAL to managing a thyroid disorder. The symptoms listed below are often seen in those of us living with Hashimoto's disease. Besides my daily medication, I've added extra steps that I take to live well with Hashimto's. My disease isn't in charge of me, I AM in charge...I simply face Hashimoto's as another unique aspect of myself. I hope you find this information useful.

  • Fatigue - Making time for adequate rest is a priority. I do my best to manage my time. Naps, regular therapeutic massage, Epsom salt baths, moderate amounts of sunshine/Vitamin D, and acupuncture treatments help me recover from sleepless nights.

  • Bloating - Avoiding oil in my diet and eating foods like potatoes prevents me from experiencing bloating. I have found that if I am inflamed or is due to something I have eaten. Check my Nourish page to view my meal plan and recipes.

  • Forgetfulness - I prefer pencil and paper over gadgets. I make lists as reminders and have a day planner to stay organized.

  • Weight gain - I love to cook, I love to eat...AND staying lean is important to me. The Starch Solution is my dietary solution. Regular activity such as walking, stretching, strength training, and isometric routines provide energy, muscle tone, pain management, stamina, and keep my spirits up.

  • Change in skin appearance - Our skin is the largest organ of elimination. I support my skin with a whole food diet, stay well hydrated, avoid caffeine/nicotine/alcohol/refined foods, exfoliate daily with bath gloves/sugar scrubs/Clarisonic Mia (for face), spend time in saunas/steam rooms when I am able, and moisturize with quality products.

This advice is not a substitute for medical care. Speak to your doctor about how to best manage your health.
