19 Oct Hashimoto’s? We just didn’t know how big a deal it was…

See this happy and healthy family here? — we were not always in this place.  Truth is, it was a lot of years of awfulness while we wandered in an undiagnosed Hashimoto’s condition. After years of bouncing around from doctor to doctor and wiping out our money and time trying to find out what was going on we finally go to this photo you see above.  It was hard fought.

Oh, how I wish I had a resource like the upcoming The Healing Hashimoto’s Summit back then. We would have saved 5 – 7 YEARS or more of my girl wandering in sickness and frustration.

If you’re still in that place of hard symptoms, frustrated with testing, or even if you already have a firm diagnosis, join us to learn from us, and others as they share their personal stories and shortcut yourself to a better place.

Plus the advice, tips and in-clinic practices from the experts they’ve relied on, not just to diagnose and manage this disease, but to live
with hope, purpose and wholeness.

Here’s why you (and likely your loved ones) should attend this…
90% of all hypothyroid conditions are due to Hashimoto’s, and tens of millions of people world wide are struggling from this disorder — it’s STILL one of the most common yet uncommonly diagnosed diseases in the world.

Your thyroid affects just about EVERY part of your health. Slight imbalances can cause problems all over your body (and you may not even know they’re happening).

That’s why it’s so important to catch a thyroid disorder as early as possible.

Symptoms range from hair loss, weight gain, depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, cold hands and feet, excessive perspiration, dryness, irritability, brain fog, skin issues, hives, digestive distress, malnutrition, heart palpitations, hormone imbalance, decreased libido, sluggishness.

Yeah, very much not fun. The list goes on and on.

We want you to know you’re not alone in your thyroid struggles, Stacey and I have been there, done that.  That’s why we decided to co-host The Healing Hashimoto’s Summit in the “For Loved Ones” tract (A brand new section for the family and friends who may not understand what’s going on)


Sign up for the summit here: http://bit.ly/healing-hashimotos-summit-2017

The Healing Hashimoto’s Summit 2017 is here to:

+ Raise awareness about this chronic disease
+ Help with early detection, testing and diagnosis
+ Discuss the importance of physical, mental and emotional healing
+ Advice for navigating the ups and downs
+ Share success stories (it IS possible and you’re not alone)
+ And a whole bunch more

The Healing Hashimoto’s Summit 2017
is online and free from November 6-13, 2017!

26 Jun Is Your Thyroid Affecting Your Credibility?

Hey guys – today we’re going to hear from my wife, Stacey, to get a little perspective from across the gender aisle. I know! We already know it all, but just to keep it real, let’s see what’s going on in the mind of women with Hashimoto’s.

This post is from Dana Trentini’s hypothyroidmom.com site (great place to get more info and perspective) and my Stacey got to share.  Here’s the teaser paragraph…

I woke up in the middle of the night, tonight, and realized, “Oh shit. I haven’t answered my e-mails in 3 weeks and oh, I haven’t written a blog in nearly forever.

Even though I have my own good reasons (working on my new book, taking care of my oldest kiddo who’s sick again from the mold exposure in our last place while I’m still healing from the mold and have been exhausted, finishing the homeschool year, and working with my coaching clients) the truth is that I’m bummed.

One of the things that I long for in my life and work is:

consistency.

I don’t know about you but consistency is one of the things that got impacted by having my thyroid go sideways when the thyroid autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s entered my life.

28 Apr I Hope This Cartoon Doesn’t Make Sense to You

OK guys…

I need to introduce you to Stop the Thyroid Madness.

STTM Logo

If you’re in the beginning with your Hashi woman, and considering an Endocrinologist (“Endo”) to help you, please know that there is a very common story of basically this Endo telling you what to do, looking at her (and treating her) as just her lab numbers in one specific area (instead of considering her whole health picture)

And when you share how your woman is NOT feeling better after faithfully following their program, you get attitude, or belittled. Some, who want to please their doctor, faithfully follow that advice that may not work for them, and feel awful for an unnecessarily long time.

There’s a lot of heat and frustration in this group, because they feel betrayed, beaten down, and worn from the toll on their body / emotions / life.

That’s about as short as I can make it. Hopefully that gives the context for this cartoon.

(Disclaimer: not every endocrinologist is this type, but if he or she is, just leave and save yourself a lot of frustration and pain)

11 Jan I’m Mr. Prince Charming… sometimes

So, lately my princess is feeling tired and down…

So, I got my amazing prince mode on! Actually, I got ticked off, angry, down, went out for a walk, got hopeful again, started helping with the kids, got her a some food and a cup of coffee, rubbed her neck and back; she finally felt more cared for by the end of the day.

Hardly my best day, but sometimes that’s life. I’m not always prince charming, but I get there. You can too, guys… you can too. Hang in there.
