I often get asked if you can cure Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The short answer is NO! There is no cure for Hashimoto’s or for other autoimmune diseases!
That doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to living half a life though!!
Whist you can’t cure hashimoto’s yo can put it into remission and it can be done fairly quickly once you make the right changes.
That’s exactly what I’ve done.
I’ve gone from living in pain, with crippling fatigue and brain fog every single day for years on end to symptom free.
I finally feel like the old me again!
You can achieve that too!
Whats driving that autoimmune attack?
First we have to unpick what is driving your hashimoto’s and for every person that can be slightly different.
It usually starts with a genetic predisposition.
Autoimmunity tends to run in families.
But its not always the same autoimmune disease. So your parents may have psoriasis or rheumatoid athritis but you have hashimoto’s or coeliac disease.
Just because you have that genetic predisposition doesn’t mean you’re definitely going to develop that disease.
That tends to rely on something triggering those genes to be switched on.
This can be anything from an infection such as Epstein Barr Virus, to a traumatic event or even to child birth.
And its rarely just one trigger, there are usually several!
We can’t change our genes or in most cases the things that triggered Hashimoto’s initially.
But what we can do is address the things that are keeping that autoimmune attack going.
How do you stop the autoimmune attack?
In order to stop the autoimmune attack we need to look at environmental factors.
This comes down to everything from diet to lifestyle factors such as stress, sleep and exercise to toxin exposure.
I hear what you’re saying! Can changing these factors really have such an impact and get rid of your symptoms?
I was sceptical too when I first heard this!
But believe me making some pretty small changes to what you eat alone can have a profound effect on how you feel.
Check out my blog on my attempt at the AIP protocol if you want to see the difference diet can make. Not that I’d now recommend this as a starting point for most people, its pretty restrictive. But done right it can be handy in some cases.
I wish the impact diet and lifestyle can have was common knowledge, something we learnt in school, that what you eat, do, think and surround yourself with can really affect your health in major ways.
Can you make these changes on your own?
Sure, but it can be tough and take a lot of trial and error!
I tried going it alone for so long, researching and reading, trying new things.
Trying to figure out what worked and what didn’t was frustrating to say the least.
Some things actually made me feel much worse as I hadn’t realised what works for one doesn’t always work for another.
It was like playing pin the tail on the donkey! Desperately fumbling around in the dark and hoping that this new thing would do the trick!
If you want quick results and to stop feeling like death warmed up every day then get some help from someone who knows what they’re doing!
Working with a Nutritional Therapist for the first time was probably one of the best things I ever did.
I was by no means fixed! But it was enough to push me to study nutrition myself when my Nutritional therapist retired.
Now I knew what could be done I wasn’t happy with just feeling a little better I wanted to feel like me again.
I wanted to enjoy my life again.
Once I figured out what pieces were missing in my diet and lifestyle the transformation to full health was rapid!
And I haven’t looked back since!!
Ready to make those changes and feel like the old you again?
I know how difficult living with hashimoto’s can be.
And I know making those initial changes can feel so daunting and it can be a struggle to know even where to start.
So I’ve decided to offer free 30 minute hashimoto’s help calls throughout January to help you kick start your recovery.
In just 3 weeks from changing my diet my constant digestive symptoms disappeared. No more bloating, cramping, pain, fluctuating diarrhoea and constipation or acid reflux. My insomnia disappeared too. Shortly after the brain fog started to lift along with my energy levels.
If you’d like to put a strategy in place so that you can start ditching those symptoms then claim your free session HERE!
Sessions are booking up fast so don’t hang around!
