You can live your best life with Hashimoto's

And I'll show you how....

I've been living healthfully with Hashimoto's for over two decades.

When I was diagnosed, I didn’t have the support of a proper care team or advocate. I was alone in navigating my health journey.

And the medication alone wasn't enough for me to thrive.

It took me a long time to uncover the holistic principles that allowed me to turn my life around and completely heal my autoimmune diseases.

THERE IS A WAY to be healthier and feel better through food, lifestyle and mind/body practices.

Newly Diagnosed with Hashimoto's?

Choosing the right doctor to support your thyroid health

Lab Testing

Thyroid Testing

Ideally, you would get your TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 tested once or twice per year.

However, if you are working with your provider to adjust medication dosages in order to find the right amount, I suggest testing every six weeks.

I recommend the following lab panel for the clients I work with remotely: Extended Thyroid Test for Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. It costs just $129 but is valued at over $400.

True Health Labs allow you to directly order labs that make the most sense for your health condition, enabling you to better participate in the overall management of your health.

If you do order these labs, be sure to take them with you to your next provider appointment.

Functional Nutrition testing may include additional tests such as food intolerance testing, nutrient deficiency testing and stool/microbiome testing, and is available through my office and is typically a part of the Adult Advanced Program.

Finding the right balance for your own body is the best way to restore your thyroid health.

Restoring overall balance in the endocrine system includes improving your digestive function, eliminating food triggers and supporting your immune system.

Vitamin D

For those of us who have Hashimoto’s or other thyroid dysfunction, it is important to know that vitamin D (sometimes called “the sunshine vitamin”) is highly important, even more so than for the average person.

That’s because people with autoimmune thyroid conditions like Hashimoto’s and Grave’s diseases are more likely to be deficient in vitamin D.

Metagenics D3 5,000 + K.

This formula provides 5,000 IU per softgel of vitamin D (as D3) and bioavailable forms of vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7) to enhance absorption.

You can purchase this vitamin D using the code FAMILY at checkout.

While magnesium is critical to the basic healthy functioning of all individuals, I have found that it is one of the most important, and oftentimes most deficient, nutrients for those with Hashimoto’s.

Most people with Hashimoto’s have numerous micronutrient deficiencies.

Metagenics Mag Glycinate

Mag Glycinate features a magnesium amino acid chelate (bis-glycinate) designed to enhance absorption and intestinal tolerance.

You can purchase this vitamin D using the code FAMILY at checkout.
