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.

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.

Did you know that your thyroid hormones impact all cells in your body?
Meaning that your:

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...
