The place to find holistic information about your health

82 / Putting Hashimoto’s Into Remission w/ Dr. Emily Kiberd

While treating a lot of women at my clinic, I’ve encountered many auto-immune conditions, including Hashimoto’s. Everyone has a story. However, it’s normal to feel like your story doesn’t get heard, that people can’t understand. Because it is important to share our stories and let everyone know that they have a voice, I’m sharing my own journey with Hashimoto’s with you this week.

After having my baby four years ago, I just couldn’t shake the fatigue that followed and the baby weight just wouldn’t go away. It was easy enough to normalize this experience. But just getting by day by day wasn’t going to cut it long-term. That’s why I sought help and finally found it with a Hashimoto’s diagnosis.

The following months involved countless protocols and changes in eating habits. Discovering that I was hosting more than a few parasites was also an eye-opener. Once I started getting rid of those, I took a closer look at my diet. Eliminating certain foods and conducting an LRA test uncovered surprising food sensitivities. Then it was on to detoxing the heavy-metals in my body.

After nine months of following various protocols, my thyroid levels were back to normal. But some changes continue. My workout routine has shifted to being more focused on strength than cardio. It turns out the strength training is a great way to stimulate thyroid receptors and help keep tendons in healthy order.

Getting a handle on Hashimoto’s requires self-examination and making changes. But it’s totally something we’re all capable of. Come to my Hashimoto’s Masterclass to find out more from someone who’s lived this journey too.
