Another six months on and I am delighted to let you all know that I have reversed my Hashimoto’s. I am more than delighted! My antibodies are below the 35 IU/mL, and it has been due to diet, supplements, exercise and lifestyle.
My current lifestyle is still busy but I now try my best to keep on top of my workload and general daily pressure.
I continued with my gluten-free diet, avoiding processed gluten-free products 99% of the time also.
From an individual who naively followed the principles of a low fat diet in her twenties and scorned anyone who took supplements, always believing that your food gave you all the nutrients if you ate healthy, I have come a long way – unfortunately the hard way. And if you read my previous blogs you will know the changes I have made have been many. I now eat increased healthy fat choices and upped my vegetable intake further than I thought possible and I’m loving the changes.
I see patients at my clinic daily who have chronic inflammation, PCOS, chronic fatigue syndrome, hypothyroidism, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and IBS, who all benefit from my new and ever expanding nutritional and medical research and knowledge.
My message to you all is not to suffer in silence. You may have been through many tests that show nothing is wrong but don’t give up. You need a full MOT to be able to get to the root cause. Therefore I urge you to seek advice.
