You have a slow thyroid. That's what the doctor told you. You are now on thyroid medication to replenish your thyroid hormone deficiency. You have your blood tested once every few weeks and, according to your doctor, your levels are fine. Yet you still don't feel well. Your doctor says that you have to take pills for the rest of your life and "well, you will have to learn to live with these residual symptoms.
Is this scenario recognizable to you?
Despite your good blood levels, you don't feel well. You are tired and have no puff for the fun things in life. Your body weight increases with every cookie and no matter what you do, you don't manage to lose those extra pounds again. You're always cold, even in the summer. You regularly feel down and are more quiet. Those around you tell you that you just need to slow down or exercise more, but you know that's not the reason. You often feel stiff in the morning and your joints and skin sometimes suddenly hurt. A long list of vague, strange complaints passes in review. And the worst part is: you've almost gotten used to it.
And now the good news
I have good news for you: it's not in your head. You're not crazy, you're not posturing and you're not alone. You probably suffer from Hashimoto's disease
Of course, this in itself is not something to be happy about. What is nice is that after watching this free online webinar you will know exactly why you are not feeling happy. And even better: you'll know that you don't have to live with residual complaints and that with a few dietary and lifestyle adjustments you can start to feel good again!
What your doctor doesn't look at ...
The human body is an ingenious combination of some 100,000 billion cells, tissues, organs, substances and thoughts. In order to work like a well-oiled machine, almost all of these parts depend on sufficient thyroid hormone. Therefore, in order to feel happy, two things must be properly regulated.
- We must have sufficient thyroid hormone.
- The cells in our body must actually be able to use the thyroid hormone.
Makes sense right?
Unfortunately doctors rarely look at the second point. They check the supply of hormone in the blood, but do not look at whether this supply can be used.
In this free Weetkracht Webinar, I'll update you on your diagnosis and show you the bigger picture, helping you understand that there are more aspects to a slow thyroid than just supplementing a hormone deficiency.
With proper blood tests and lifestyle modifications (diet, exercise, sleep, thoughts and stress), you can influence the availability and usability of your thyroid hormone.
After watching/listening to this Webinar, you will also have enough knowledge to request the proper blood tests so you can measure how your thyroid hormones are really doing.
You got this.
