I’m always looking for natural ways to improve my life. I had been seeing people talking about “Seed Cycling” for over a year, but I just hadn’t had time to look into it for myself (read, it wasn’t a priority). A few weeks ago I finally googled “seed cycling” and within 2 minutes I knew that it was something I must try immediately. I have always struggled with my hormones being all over the place, I frequently get cysts and hormonal breakouts. The research shows that seed cycling could be the answer to all of these issues plus many more, like PCOS, endometriosis, and fertility. .
.
The seeds are natural hormone regulators. So you start on day 1 (Day 1-14) Of your cycle and add 1 Tbsp. of sprouted ground pumpkin seeds and 1 Tbsp. sprouted ground flax seeds. I just ate them raw, but you can add them to smoothies or other things. .
.
The next 15 days (Days 15-30, depending on the length of your cycle) you switch to 1 Tbsp. sprouted ground sesame seeds and 1 Tbsp. sprouted ground sunflower seeds. I have been adding these to a smoothie, because I’m not a huge fan of sesame seeds. I’ve also added 50mg of Evening Primrose 3x per day, in-between meals during this part of my cycle only. I downloaded an app on my phone that keeps track of my cycle. I just picked the first one that came up, which was Flo and I like it. .
.
I have not yet completed a full cycle, so I haven’t noticed any difference as of yet, but I’m excited to see the benefits that this simple addition will bring. Research shows that it takes a few cycles to notice maximum benefit. I’ve been living with these symptoms for decades, so a few months of adding a few seeds to my diet seems easy. 🤞🏼
.
.
If you struggle with any hormonal issues I definitely recommend just googling seed cycling and I think you’ll be excited to add seeds to your diet as well. .

Today’s Workout
-
Lets just say it didn’t go as planned.
-
25 min HIIT and 45 min Resistance Training. What happened? Well... I worked out as planned, but felt absolutely sick afterwards, in result I had to throw up and was sick for about an hour.
-
I didn’t push past what my body can handle at the moment. But my caloric deficit is way to big. My body literally didn’t have the energy for the workout.
-
So again, I will have to implement a change in my diet, to actually have the fuel for my body.
-
I will definitely post some updates on food as I find what works for me now.
-
Keep safe out there. Stay disciplined, but dont push it to far. 💪 #hashimotos #doitanyway #discipline #keto #paleo #hiit

Breakfast on this beautiful Sunday morning! I sautéed mushrooms and spinach in Kerry Gold butter then added my eggs and a little heavy whipping cream. Topped my eggs with half of a Roma tomato and two links of breakfast sausage. My avocados are still rock hard or I would’ve added them on top. #keto #ketorecipes #ketodiet #ketovsg #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #vsg #vsgeats #pcos #pcosweightloss #hashimotosdisease #hashimotos #hashimotosweightloss

Dinner last night 🙌 I love when restaurants can accommodate for the AIP diet. I know exactly what to ask for by now too! I got a steak, butternut squash and spinach all seasoned with just salt and pepper 💗

Alright, so yesterday's post about not covering up our food or faces had it's intended effect: It started a conversation! No, my intention was not to bash gourmet cooking or make-up artistry, but it was to ask about a deeper "Why?"
•
•
•
Why are we trying to trick ourselves into eating healthy foods by slathering them with sauces or pretending everything is some form of macaroni and cheese?
•
•
•
Lifestyle changes are more likely to stick when we find things to eat that we actually LIKE and even LOVE! Trying new things and cooking them well can open our tastebuds to foods that are also healthy and healing to our bodies.
•
•
•
Also, what happens when are we using make-up to hide our insecurities or to pretend we are not exhausted? Very often, the cover-up prevents us from being motivated to address the underlying issues.
•
•
•
I took this picture after an 11-hour flight and two hours through customs. My body clock still thought it was 3:30 am and my mind was angry I was still awake. About an hour later, the zits started popping out on my forehead, my ruddiness was like a stoplight, and my ankles were swollen. The circles under my eyes began looking like I was punched. You know what those features told me? I needed to REST!
•
•
•
What's the message here? Save cooking and cosmetics to enhance, not to cover up something that needs a different kind of attention.

🙋🏼‍♀️This is for me, anyone else?? I was recently at dinner with friends, which honestly rarely happens, and I caught myself multiple times worrying about work, projects, my kid, an upcoming trip, that to-do list getting longer by the second... and I had to remind myself to JUST BE PRESENT. It’s ok to stop and enjoy yourself, enjoy others and collect happy moments.
•
What is it that holds you back from enjoying happy times? Guilt? Worry? Shame? Tiredness? I want to remind you today that it’s not just ok, it’s also NECESSARY to stop and enjoy yourself!

I think my grocery shopping habits have improved a lot over the past few years.  #healthyfood on a budget. Regular old grocery store. I shop every few days for freshness. No boxes. Only perimeter of the store. But yup, I still love my #jam. It’s my treat. #hashimotos #autoimmunedisease #thyroid

Note to self:
Note to self:
I’ve been quiet on here recently. Life has been just a bit chaotic and I’ve been adjusting to being in full time grad school again + as always a full time patient. The semester started out with quite a bit of challenge but now I’ve found a new practicum/internship site that I’m sure excited about. I had to really self-advocate for it. I will be working at a treatment center for substance abuse in the detox unit. • With added stress self-care becomes even more important, even when it feels like there is no time for it. For me that has meant keeping up with my medications/infusions, doctors appointments and rest. Self-care for me also includes things like watching mindless Netflix shows, time with my partner & friends, juicing and of course trying to move my body out in nature. ☀️ what self-care practice is vital for you?

This is me and this is my story 😊
I've been challenged to put myself out there, so here it is. I've been posting here and there about gut health and supplements that help alleviate  symptoms associated with many illnesses.🤒🤢🤧 Are they a majic pill? No! Just tools that help with wellness. 
After you read this I challenge you to research gut health.
"All disease begins in the gut" Hipprocrates.
So about a year ago I was feeling absolutely horrible and the only way to explain it is I felt like I was trying to walk through quicksand. No exaggeration. Every day was worse than the day before. I was beyond fatigued, not just tired. My body and joints hurt bad and anxiety was out of control 😟 No joke I thought I was dying. After having blood work done I was told I have Hashimoto's. Anyone that knows me knows I don't just throw in the towel. I researched holistic ways to alleviate all these nasty symptoms. And guess what?????? It all starts in the gut😜

I changed the way I ate. No preservatives, gluten, dairy, soy and No sugar! I felt a bit better for the first few months, but I knew it wasnt enough. Why?? Because sadly even our organic food lacks nutrients because the poor quality of our soil. 
Back to more research!  We need more help feeding our guts the healthy bacteria necessary to thrive. 
That's when I came across my "pink drink"! Its all natural plant based, non gmo  goodness! 🤩
I have more energy than I did in my 30's.
No anxiety and less stress.
No more joint pain.
AND the best part is that happened within the first week!! 🙌🙌 Autoimmune disease wont stop me!

Want to join me in getting healthy from the inside out?? Message me I love to share!💖💖 #hashimotos #autoimmunediseases #allnatural #paleo #keto #vegetarian

Good morning!
^
I have been contemplating a lot lately ! ^
Life has caught up to me ! Adulting, motherhood, kick starting a new business, watching my husband brave cancer, and catching up to my own self care! It’s kind of a lot!
^
I looked at myself in the mirror and looked at my eyes! I am worn out!
^
So whats the next reasonable way to make me feel and look rejuvenated ?
^
Juicing!
^
Done right, it’s super easy !
^
And so many benefits: more energy, bright eyes, slow aging, boosts immunity, detoxifies, cleanses, mental clarity, and heals.
^
You can’t get this from a skin care line. While there are some amazing and clean products out there, those are bandaids. ^
So who wants to join me on my 7 day #juiceandglowchallenge ?
^
Starting October 1-7th. Take a picture of your juice, tag @mirandabuellyoga , hashtag #juiceandglowchallenge , and tell me how you feel!
^
The person who joins me on this challenge will be entered to win 2 yoga classes with me!
^
For the next week I will be posting recipes and tips to make juicing easier on you !
^
Tag a friend to join us!
^
Recipe for the juice pictured:
A handful of spinach, a large cucumber, 1 pear, juice of 1/2 a lemon, a piece of juiced ginger, and sea salt ( optional ).
^
Happy Juicing! Happy Glowing!

Are you getting enough sleep? I think it’s s question that we need to ask ourselves, because I bet the answer for most of us is no!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I got super sick last year I think a lot of came from lack of sleep. I wasn’t getting good sleep at all. Up countless times, staying up late, getting up early.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I realized that lack of sleep was actually one of the causes I really tried to focus on getting better sleep. It wasn’t easy, but here are a few tricks I use!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❤️ Try to get 8-9 hours of sleep!! Plan it out so you don’t stay up too late!!
❤️ use a sleeping mask to keep the light out!
❤️ Get rid of electronics in your room, don’t fall asleep to the TV, try not to use your phone or keep it by your bed.
❤️ if you do have your phone by your bed, turn it on airplane mode so that the wireless signals aren’t roaming around your room affecting your sleep
❤️ get sleep music to help calm and drown out other noise. I use the relax melodies app and it’s made a world of difference.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What have you done to get better sleep or are struggling in this area?

I use the relax melodies app and it’s made a world of difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What have you done to get better sleep or are struggling in this area?
Friends for 11 years, living 1,000 miles away for 8 of them. Somehow we manage to have matching shoes and dress mostly in camel and black 😂. .

@haveyoumetkat has been one of my biggest cheerleaders over the years. She always remembers to check in on the anniversary of my mom’s death and regularly asks how I’ve been feeling. She also sent me like 10 headbands to cover my bald patch during my first alopecia flare. I’m just the luckiest to have her in my life.

It’s a gloomy, rainy today in Nashville and I’m loving every minute of it. Waffles & bacon for breakfast it is! 😋

Look what came in the post today. ‘Heal Your Gut’ by @leesupercharged 
Sooo excited to read it & try the 4 week gut healing protocol. Since suffering with several kidney infections & having 5 lots of antibiotics earlier this year, I have noticed a worsening of my food allergies. I seem to be reacting to everything I eat with urticaria. My poor gut needs some help & I am hoping I can restore it with gut healing recipes & probiotics 😁👍🏼🥑🥗
Anyone else managed to heal their gut? What worked for you? .....

🎶Mornings here, the morning is here🎶 Good mornin 🙋🏻‍♀️☀️ woke up with yet another little cold, so I’m craving my greens. V simple egg wrap on a spinach tortilla with arugula and green onion 🥗. Since being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease I get sick ALL. THE. TIME. I’ll be revising my diet a little after I do some more research 🧐. Anyone got any advice for not getting sick with hashimoto?

Didn’t feel like making eggs this morning, so threw some sausage, goat cheese and carrots with avocado dip on the plate.  Not the best breakfast, but it worked!  Hit 11.5lbs this week....all the motivation I need! .

You guys, tomorrow will be 4 weeks since my last drop of any caffeine! No small thing. The first time I went on AIP was a couple years ago now (time goes by soooo quickly 🤯) but I never gave up caffeine, I was drinking a couple of cups of matcha a day, I just couldn’t imagine having enough energy with a workday that started at 6am, especially having poor sleep at that time (our previous house was located on a busy highway... the worst).
.
.
Don’t get me wrong, I still dream of coffee daily but I  don’t need it. My energy is way more stable, my intestines are much happier and I don’t have the anxiousness I would get from my 1 cuppa. .
.
.
It feels good that I’m finally doing the things I’ve been putting off to support my overall well-being. To cut out the vices and feel how my body is actually doing. .
.
It’s even more apparent that I still need to work on my sleep (allergy season has been rough and my sleep is suffering the most). .
.
.
But to anyone contemplating cutting out caffeine to see how you feel, I recommend it. In my experience the foods and drinks that I fear giving up are the ones that are negatively impacting my health the most. (Sweets, caffeine... 🙋🏻‍♀️)
.

If you’re looking for more info and inspiration for going caffeine free I love the resources @tastyyummies put together. Google tasty yummies and caffeine free. 💫

Similar looking pictures... 2 different journeys... the Left journey pic 2014 ... I spent  2 years of dedication in the gym 2011-2013 with tons of cardio and weights... high amounts of protein with little carbs and fats... leading into an obsession/disorder with exercising and food limitations... I paid the price for that... I fried my body with it which led to an autoimmune disease from the stress I put on my body with a lot of life pressures I put on my myself on top of it... my life came crashing down and it was debilitating... but....
Right journey 2018... I took control of my health.. I found myself again and have the right knowledge now on what is the proper way to fuel my body the healthy way. My autoimmune issues are in a good balance right now. I can honestly say this journey has been the most successful for me. I have learned so much from all of this and realize these journeys are building blocks to hopefully help others in the future... #thyroidwarrior #nevergiveup #hashimotos #hypothyroidism #testimony #happiness #neversettle #wholehealth #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #autoimmunedisease #antiinflammatorydiet #recovery #sherrycotter2.0 #s2faction #1stphorm #iam1stphorm

💜I loved my time in the fitness industry as a trainer and group exercise instructor but let’s be honest- as fun & as passionate as i was about helping people- I was overworked, underpaid, exhausted. 🖤 I started thinking about the future and having kids and how much daycare was compared to how much i was making and I realized it wasn’t going to work. I didn’t want to go away to a gym 10 hours a day, I wasn’t making enough money for that to work and I didn’t want to miss out on raising our future family. 💜 At the same time I didn’t want to just give up my life’s purpose which has been to help others discover their potential and live a healthy, fulfilling life! ✨ Coaching has been the biggest blessing because it allows me to do what I love, help, serve and grow but I get to do that on my terms. 🌟 I want to contribute to our family financially and have a role outside of being a mom but I also want to be present for all those memories raising them. ✨Anyone else feel like they need more freedom and flexibility? If so, let’s chat more about how this platform can get you there. 📲📲📲

I knew I felt best when I moved my body. I remembered the results after I followed a workout program, to get  on stage for a figure contest. I felt so accomplished, so proud of my body. 
Well...... like most moms, 12 years later with two babies, my body didn’t feel like mine anymore. I kept searching for others to help me to stay “accountable”. But the painful truth is I have to be accountable to myself. My results do not come from others. 
I decided to do it! I decided to make myself a priority. I decided to commit to my needs and my dreams. I decided to quit making excuses, and move and fuel my body everyday. It has been over 25 days and I absolutely feel incredible. I feel powerful. I feel charged. I feel encouraged. I feel excited. I feel hopeful. It’s just the beginning and I want to encourage you to do what you need to do for you! 
You can do it. You are so much more powerful than you think.

Current "healthcare" AKA SICKCARE is based on emergency medicine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Doctor's have been taught how to treat symptoms only using medications with side effects (big or small). Plus, they don't solve the problem, preventing future issues. They regulate and mask symptoms.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your blood pressure meds regulate it, they don't stop what's causing it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your pain meds, block pain receptors. They don't fix what is causing the pain.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your insulin manages your sugar.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I could keep going all day. But, I think you get the point ;)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
HEALTHCARE - Is practiced by doctor's who believe in integrative or functional medicine. Healthcare means prevention, promotes lifestyle changes that directly affect the state of your health, finding the cause, and providing solutions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chronic conditions need to be looked at as a bodywide issue and need to be treated as such. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can't treat every system separately and expect our bodies to respond and heal (hence why most of us are too sick to really live)

By treating the autoimmune disease as a systemic issue and looking at how each symptom interconnects with various organ systems we are able to trace back to the cause, which is environmental.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we find the cause, we use proper healthcare to treat it, heal it, and then prevent it moving forward!⠀⠀⠀

That moment when something is wrong with your child. When she is being put under for a procedure before her 2nd birthday. She was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and the GI wanted to “try” a intense medicine to see if it would help!
.
We politely declined and proceeded to do our own research. There wasn’t much out there, so I’ve promised myself I’d share our natural healing journey.

Yesterday was a big day of celebrating in our house!!! Read the full story on my blog at the link in my bio.

Ready for another weekday dinner roundup?
_
This week’s recipes are inspired by the fact that I have a busy work week and cannot guarantee what time I’ll actually make it home. So each dinner can be made entirely in advance and cooked within 20 minutes! That way, if Chris makes it home before me, all he has to do is put the pre-made meal in the oven and whip up a clean side or starch. 
_
Each meal has balanced protein and vegetables and combine easily with simple side dishes that you can customize to what your family likes!! _
Bonus: there will be plenty of leftover protein for healthy work lunches throughout the week! 
_____
MONDAY -  Fish in Paper (PA: slice vegetables; make parchment hearts; or even assemble all the packets)
_
TUESDAY - Pulled Pork Carnitas (PA: make pulled pork in slow cooker - 14 hours; or instant pot- 1 hour)
_
WEDNESDAY - Lasagna Stuffed Delicata Squash (PA: make filling and par-cook the squash; you can even stuff the squash ahead of time!)
_
THURSDAY - Sheet Pan Sausage and Peppers (PA: slice vegetables; assemble sheet pan)

I'm feeling especially sad about the end of summer this year...⁣
⁣
I spent a lot of time in nature over the last few months and it provided such a mental and emotional boost during a time when I was struggling. ⁣
⁣
One of my current goals is to get outside even during winter - my least favourite season. Time to invest in some heavy duty cold weather gear (which you'd think I would have done by now having lived in Canada all my life... go figure!) ⁣

So I cheated last night. Not with this lady but with my diet.  I went out and had a few beers with friends.  Now alcohol and gluten are usually big no no’s for people with hashimotos.  But I no longer look at myself as having a disease.  As after Many gruelling years I am again healthy and energized.  And on the rare occasion I can cheat without regressing.  Now back to clean for me.

“Self-care is NOT doing things that feel good NOW if you know they will make you feel bad LATER” - @melissa_hartwig
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s so easy to get knocked off track. When we are tired and run down, we need good self-care habits more than ever. However- this is when self-care gets the hardest. For example, when we feel tired, we are less likely to want nutritious healthy food. Instead, we crave sugar, baked goods, coffee- all the stimulants. And this happens even with AIP. I find myself craving “compliant” baked goods, kombucha, maple syrup and honey when I am really run down. My favorite thing to do? Dip my spoon into a jar of honey! And why is that? Because it perks me up when I feel run down. 🍯
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You see, our bodies get so fatigued after overdoing, which creates a biological need for an artificial boost of cortisol. The sugars, the carbs - they give us the boost we need in the moment. But I tell you, after my dance with the honey jar, I pay for it later. I have trouble sleeping, my aches and pains are more intense, and the cravings cycle continues.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It affects my exercise too! I feel exhausted, so I take a day off of exercise. That day turns into two, and then three… So all of a sudden, I am now in a loop where the lack of movement is starting to create more pain as well and now I am in a flare.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, I try to remember in the tough times that the comfort foods do not actually bring comfort - instead, they just add to my struggle. They knock me off my game, cause setbacks in my exercise, and derail me from my goals.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But sometimes I give in. And that’s ok, too. In that moment, remember that it’s JUST food. Don’t beat yourself up, don’t feed yourself with guilt over having failed- just enjoy that moment and move on with your life.  See thing link in my bio for more tips on reducing flares!

Am I anywhere near where everyone else is? No, but I am running my own race from now on! #fitfam #fitness #fitnessmotivation #motivation #steps #stepchallenge #fitbit #fitbitlife #weightloss #polycysticovariansyndrome #pcoswarrior #cyster #pcos #hashimotos #thyroidproblems
“Sweat now, shine later.”🌟
•
I’ve been doing a lot of heavy lifting lately because I love it!
•
 But I think I need to add some HIIT into my workouts a couple days a week. 😳
•
I’ve been slacking in that area welp basically because cardio doesn’t sound as fun to me but it’s only 20 mins of my day so I need to push myself.
•
Cardio is necessary. Even if you’re not a fan, you gotta do it. It helps build your endurance. Also, it’s good for heart health and fat loss.

I’m establishing boundaries today. You could be a really amazing person but that doesn’t mean you are healthy for me and my healing and growth. It’s taken me a while to see that good people can be toxic and I don’t have to explain, apologize or make space for people that drain me and distract me from my goals. We can just part ways amicably. I don’t need to apologize for my intensity, drive, focus and for my illnesses. In order for there to be balance in my life, there needs to be balance in my mind. And vice versa. Even though I’m sitting here eating a sausage McMuffin, I feel like after a week of feeling lost, I’m finding my way back to the path again. You see, I don’t get my period every month like normals do. I have PCOS and with my recent illnesses and diminished fertility, I hadn’t had a period since June. So I went all week feeling frustrated, just wanting to quit life and cocoon myself in bed forever watching old Star Trek episodes. Then my period came and I was like, welcome old friend. No wonder my emotions were all over the place. No wonder I’ve been so introspective and intolerant of bull shit. I knew I wasn’t a crazy bitch. Your period really helps you sort things out. I feel lucky to still get it (even though my uterus is RAGING right now) but there is something about the process of shedding your uterine lining that helps you shed toxic ideas, behaviors, and people. Women’s bodies are amazing if we just listen to them. Am I rambling? I don’t care. #unapologetic Have a great day everyone.

Gluten is a protein found in some grains including wheat (and varieties of wheat), barley, triticale, and rye.  Those with an autoimmune condition known as celiac disease get very sick when they come into any contact with gluten.  This connection has long been established.  But more recently, a new condition is known as “nonceliac gluten sensitivity” has been recognized by the medical community.  People with this condition find that they do a lot better on a gluten-free diet.  Going gluten-free is not harmful to those who can tolerate it, but consuming gluten is detrimental to those who can’t tolerate it.  By keeping gluten out of WTE? meal plans, we make sure everyone in your family can enjoy them!  Read more in today's blog post by Registered Dietitian Kelli Shallal! .

Ett kortare rörlighetspass idag 30 min Hot FLX på SATS. Det känns så skumt att till stor del vara extremt vig och på stortålederna vara väldigt stel och orörlig. Skulle ju gärna vilja kunna ”strecha upp” dem och tummarna, men det är ju låst. Går jag det minsta över gränsen, så gör det jätteont. Jäkla artros, för det är väl det som det är?! Läkarna tror det ivarjefall. Den ständiga värken försvann med glutenfri kost. Stelheten och värk i vissa situationer är kvar. Problemen kom helt tvärt i februari 2017. Det var efter det som jag köpte MBT-skorna (rundade och hård sula), men dem behöver jag inte längre. Göra det man kan!

When the kids came home with sniffles after starting back at school, I amped up a my routine with immune supportive supplements.
Here a few of my favorites currently. 
Black cumin oil is sort of the new kid on the block. He's an all purpose anti-bacterial and anti-viral that also decreases bad cholesterol, regulates blood sugar (I notice it helps with sugar cravings) and is used for #hashimotos thyroiditis. Lots of my patients are starting to take it this fall.
And there's mushrooms. Each one does different things. Here I was supporting my adrenals and resilience, and also immune cells. 
Thought I had a cold yesterday but it turned out to just be fatigue, and it passed! So grateful! There's too much to do deal with a cold😂

Ah a fresh week that is going to be full of craziness.  I am going to spend time meal prepping today so I have one less thing to worry about during the week.  I am also hoping to get in some yoga to stretch my muscles out and reset my mind a little.  Every day is so planned out with what I have to get done sometimes I don’t get to take a few minutes to myself and do something for me (besides my workouts). I need to find the time and make it a priority...even if it’s only a few minutes it’s better than none.  Here’s to a new week and a fresh start 💫!

So much of life comes down to willingness, when you think about it.⠀
⠀
★ Willing to choose kindness.⠀
★ Willing to view others as equals.⠀
★ Willing to treat yourself with respect.⠀
★ Willing to set boundaries.⠀
★ Willing to put in the effort.⠀
★ Willing to change.⠀
⠀
And yes, willing to learn. Learning isn’t limited to education either. Are we willing to learn about other people? Are we willing to grow in empathy? Are we willing to pursue personal growth and learn how to release our past or change direction for the future?⠀
⠀
Are we willing to learn how to let go of or undo our stubborn habits that sabotage our health?⠀
⠀
Half, if not more, of the education process is learning how to ask the right questions. ♡

I’m finally starting to feel back to my normal self after 3 or so years of battling to work out what was making me feel unwell all the time.. I was told for so long everything was “fine” but I knew deep down it wasn’t & well here we are 😅 #hashimotos
-
I get so many messages asking what I’ve been doing to help heal myself & to be honest the biggest thing has been food! I’ve cut out gluten, dairy, grains, eggs, nuts, seeds, pork products, refined sugar and lentils & I really only eat a variety of fruit & veggies as well as salmon & chicken while also supplementing my vitamins & some essential oils! 🙌🏽
I also focus on getting more sleep - (I used to only get 4.5-5hrs a night) and I’ve found that that has reallllllly helped! 🙈

The exciting news is, I recently had more tests done and in just 3-4 months my thyroid levels have gone up! 🎉🎉 So much so, a DR would look at those results & tell me the “medication” was working BUT I’m not on medication! FOOD IS THY MEDICINE! 🥦🥔🍓🍏🍌 This is only the beginning so I’m so excited to see what my health is like in another 4 months! 🤗 #HDPT #hannahshashiupdate #hasimotos #womenshealth
Slow & steady always wins the race! 🏅 - I’m finally starting to feel back to my normal self after 3 or so years of battling to work out what was making me feel unwell all the time.. I was told for so long everything was “fine” but I knew deep down it wasn’t & well here we are 😅 #hashimotos  - I get so many messages asking what I’ve been doing to help heal myself & to be honest the biggest thing has been food! I’ve cut out gluten, dairy, grains, eggs, nuts, seeds, pork products, refined sugar and lentils & I really only eat a variety of fruit & veggies as well as salmon & chicken while also supplementing my vitamins & some essential oils! 🙌🏽 I also focus on getting more sleep - (I used to only get 4.5-5hrs a night) and I’ve found that that has reallllllly helped! 🙈 - The exciting news is, I recently had more tests done and in just 3-4 months my thyroid levels have gone up! 🎉🎉 So much so, a DR would look at those results & tell me the “medication” was working BUT I’m not on medication!

I started The Invisible Hypothyroidism as a means to record my own journey of getting on top of my thyroid health and recovering a good quality of life. It was also an outlet to help me deal with the frustration of it all. I wrote blogs on it all for a few months before eventually turning my site to public and sharing them with other people and the response was so overwhelming, with many people saying my writing made them feel less alone and more reassured that their struggles with Hypothyroidism were validated. And that’s when I decided that The Invisible Hypothyroidism’s mission would be to reach as many thyroid patients as possible and tell them that they’re not alone, their experiences DO matter and they can get better from embracing being their own thyroid advocate. I don’t want anyone to feel as lost, depressed or suicidal as I did. 🦋💙 #TIHQuote #hypothyroidism #underactivethyroid #chronicillness
