My Story

 

...but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

-Jeremiah 17:8

From Doctor to Patient

It was like a sentence to life in prison when I was told that I would need prescription thyroid hormone replacement to survive for the rest of my life. I was only 29 years old at the time, a wife and a mother of 2 who was pursuing her graduate degree in public health, with a diagnosis of Autoimmune Thyroid disease.

The thought of depending on medications to survive left a deep desire for answers and other alternatives to healing my body different from the options my colleagues in conventional medicine offered. I was given a cocktail of several drugs to be used daily that left me feeling terrible due to severe side effects. Though I was once a student and proponent of conventional medicine, it failed me at one of the most crucial points of my life.

Physician Heal Thyself

It took a combination of diet, exercise, nutraceuticals and summarily, lifestyle changes to restore my health. I depended heavily on self education, pig headed determination and an absolute trust in God to help me find remission of my symptoms. Through functional medicine, I explored the principles of wellness and healing for my body and I have never looked back since then. I was able to discover ways to heal my thyroid and reverse immune attack on my body by eliminating underlying low grade inflammation.

"Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Thy Medicine Be food"
- Hippocrates

Within a 6 month period, I went through a 5-step process of extensive detoxification, eliminating food sensitivities, and restoring all nutrient deficiencies before I was able to recover and achieve remission of my symptoms with absolutely no prescriptions. Despite being told the only option for healing my body was to remove my thyroid surgically, I avoided surgery all together by eliminating various triggers of inflammation in my body. To this day, I eat well, sleep well and live a healthy life free of prescription medications-with my thyroid gland still intact.
