If you're reading this, you probably have a thyroid issue. Maybe you have even been diagnosed with Hashimoto's or Hypothyroidism. Let's talk about how to decrease thyroid antibodies naturally!
Hopefully you have had a full thyroid panel done that confirmed the number of antibodies you have present. We are looking at TgAb, or Thyroglobulin antibodies and TPO, or Thyroid peroxidase antibodies.
If you have not had a full thyroid panel done, you can order one yourself here.
So, I'm here to show you how I personally decreased my thyroid antibodies from abnormal to into a normal range.
Here's a picture of my lab tests to show you:
As you can see, my Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies went from 21 to 5! A 75% decrease in just a few months with some simple changes.
If your antibodies are much higher, don't worry, this method still works!
So let's break it down into 5 Easy Steps:

What is Hashimoto's?
Hashimoto’s is a form of thyroiditis (or inflammation of the thyroid gland) in which the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This is also known as an autoimmune condition. This can be seen by abnormal thyroid antibody levels on lab tests.
This can cause people to feel tired, bloated, unable to lose weight, and feel cold, among many other symptoms.

Did you know Hashimoto’s is the most common cause of hypothyroidism?
A person with this condition has an overactive immune system that is mistakenly attacking the thyroid gland, stopping it from working well. This causes the thyroid to produce less of thyroid hormone, which is vital for a living a vibrant life.
The key to Hashimoto's is to get the body to stop attacking the thyroid gland...

Many people only get their TSH tested to find out if they have a hypothyroidism condition. However, you actually need these 6 thyroid tests to get a full picture of what's going on in the thyroid gland and how it's interacting with the body.
Sometimes they'll throw words out there that you don't understand and you'll google them later. Often you're not quite sure "why" something is the way it is, and how to really fix it. I have found that is difficult especially if it's not clear how to get to the root cause of the issue.
Of course, health is complex, but there are some ways to make it clearer and more transparent.

Hypothyroidism is on the rise and is coming to the forefront as one of the leading issues for women. The good news is that there are many lifestyle factors that play a role in this issue.
Thyroid issues are occurring more today than in past decades due to the increasing amount of toxins are bodies are in contact with on a daily basis. There are toxins in our food, water, air, and skincare, makeup, and cleaning products.
I have seen first hand how a lack of balance can cause hormone fluctuations and I am here to give you a simple road map back to health.
I had a textbook case of hypothyroidism back in graduate school. I was studying hard to be a chiropractor, stressing out, not getting enough sleep and thought I was eating healthy. Green smoothies are healthy...
Weight loss is one of the top difficulties that women with hypothyroidism face.
While feeling tired, puffy, and having low energy are all difficult, putting on a lot of weight, especially quickly, can bring down people's mood and make it harder to get started again with exercise.
This can have an even bigger impact on how some women feel in their bodies.
While we want to support women and their health from the inside out, here are some quick tips to get back to your natural healthy weight!

Weight loss needs to be holistic in order for it to last.

Lifestyle change needs to be made up of gradual habit changes that add up over time.

One of the main issues women face with hypothyroidism is weight gain.
This is even harder as it is paired with the increased difficulty in losing weight.
The reason why this happens is that our thyroid controls our metabolism. So when the thyroid is not functioning as strongly, our metabolism also slows down.
Maybe you feel like you're eating healthy, working out, and still not losing that pesky weight!
I completely understand, I've been there!
When my thyroid was not pumping out enough thyroid hormone, I had weight gain in my face and all over my body. Even though I was working out, I still couldn't kick the weight!
That's because our thyroid controls our metabolism, so it is important to get to the root of the issue when we are working on losing weight with hypothyroidism.
It is my goal to help women feel their best while improving their health.
Did you know that you can improve your hypothyroidism? This is something that many doctors or the internet do not tell you.
I am so happy to be talking about this today because I think it is something that does not get talked about enough.
We hear all the time about how more and more people are being diagnosed with hypothyroidism and what does that mean?
Basically, our thyroid gland (a master gland of our body!) is not producing enough thyroid hormone and we are feeling the negative effects.
The main question we need to ask why? Why did this happen and how do we get to the root of the problem?
Was it gut issues in your digestion system? Stress? Infection? Lack of proper nutrients?
While there are many causes and factors of hypothyroidism, there are also many symptoms.
These effects of hypothyroidism can include:
Hi there, I'm Dr. Sarah and I haven't always been on top of the hypothyroidism mountain.
When I was in chiropractic school, I started feeling very fatigued. I noticed that my face was puffy, my hair was falling out, and I felt plain awful.
Does this sound familiar?
I had bloating, dry skin, cold hands and feet, and had brain fog even though I was trying my best to go to class and study all day.
I had a textbook case of Hypothyroidism.
I went to see a primary care doctor and was given a very basic (and not enough information) test, and my TSH was HIGH, meaning that my body was struggling to make enough thyroid hormone.

November is upon us, which means one thing: it's holiday season!
While the holidays are a time to enjoy spending time with our loved ones, it can also be a time of stress for those trying to cut down on unhealthy food.
After all, if your Aunt Maeve offers you a piece of her decadent pumpkin pie, who are you to say no?!
Well, I'm here to offer a few tips and tricks to anyone out there trying to stay healthier during the holidays.
1) Keep up with your greens! Hopefully most of the places you'll be attending during the holidays will have some green veggies or salad. Make that be 1/4 to 1/2 of your plate so that it leaves less room for unhealthier items. By eating greens you'll be getting phytonutrients, plenty of fiber, and even some hydration to keep you feeling your best.
2) Bring healthy snacks while traveling. Since Thanksgiving and Christmas yield some of the busiest times of the year, it can be easy to have to stop for that...
Do you have unrelenting weight that you just can't lose? Maybe you've tried all the fad diets/bars/exercise classes and you aren't getting anywhere.
Well, I'm here to give you the answers.
Weight loss isn't just about how much you're working out.
There are many other factors that play into your weight and how you feel in your body.
Here are top 5 key players that you are probably overlooking in your weight loss journey:
1) Thyroid Functioning - Your thyroid plays a significant role in your metabolism. If your thyroid isn't functioning optimally, it can cause your entire body to go into a "slowed down" state. This means slowing down your metabolism, blood pressure, heart rate, hair growth, digestion, and muscle growth.
Because 27 million Americans have thyroid disease and 60% of them are undiagnosed, I encourage you to get a full thyroid panel tested - you can get it easily here. Just go to your nearest testing site, get a quick blood draw, and you'll...
