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:

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more information.

Thyroid health is of utmost importance to our brain, metabolism, mood, and energy. 

While everyone is looking for shortcuts to weight loss, we should want to optimize the master of our metabolism - our thyroid!

Our thyroid gland needs a lot of TLC, and this can get tough when we live in a routinely stressed out culture. 

All too often we find ourselves in a hurried state of panic rather than one of rest and relaxation. 

After all, even though life can get tough and throw us curve balls, it's up to us how we perceive and interpret these events. 

I want to give you a simple road map to thyroid health so that you can protect yourself against unwanted thyroid stress, that often leads to hypothyroidism or acute thyroiditis.

How I Healed My Hypothyroidism Through Diet and Nutrition

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. 

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

Meaning that your:

  • weight,
  • mood
  • blood pressure
  • heart rate
  • and metabolism are all influenced by your thyroid. 

That tiny butterfly gland on your neck? I know, it's crazy right? 

So anyway... being a student in training to be a doctor and...

How to Keep a Thyroid Healthy Diet During the Holidays

Hi Friends! 

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...

5 Reasons to Go Gluten Free to Help Hypothyroidism

 Welcome friend! 

Today let's chat about 5 Reasons to Go Gluten Free if you have hypothyroidism! 

 Check out my Free Hypothyroidism Diet Guide Here!

1) Gluten is inflammatory for most people. Research has showed that 1/3 of Americans were found to be intolerant to gluten. This means that when we eat it, the body responds to it with a heightened immune system. With hypothyroidism, the gliadin in gluten looks very similar to thyroid tissue. When your body goes to attack the gliadin, it mistakenly attacks the thyroid tissue instead! This can cause detrimental effects to the thyroid gland over time. 

2) Most wheat products are sprayed with many chemicals which hinder thyroid function. Have you heard of Round Up and the glyphosate lawsuits for causing cancer and other diseases? These chemicals have a significant effect on your hormones and can impair thyroid function. By eliminating gluten in your diet, you can bypass these harmful chemicals...

 Do you have: 

-fatigue 
-low energy 
-hair loss 
-cold hands or feet

If you answered yes, have you ever considered that your issues may be stemming from your thyroid? 
 
An estimated 20 million Americans have thyroid dysfunction, and 60% of these people are undiagnosed. 
 
The thyroid is a small (yet powerful!) butterfly shaped master gland that controls our energy, metabolism, digestion, heart rate, cognitive functioning and impacts all cells in our body. 
 
If the thyroid is not functioning well, all areas of our body can be affected. 
 
This means if we ignore signs and symptoms of improper thyroid function, it can lead to serious diseases and imbalances in our body. 
 
Often, if hypothyroidism goes untreated, it can progress to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition in which the body mistakenly attacks the thyroid gland....
