As a woman over 50, it can be a struggle when it comes to figuring out how to stay energized with low thyroid. I used to do everything wrong.
I ate low-fat foods. I ate sugar-free foods, loaded with chemicals and counted calories. I tried to do tons of cardio as the scale went up…and ended up miserable.
Finally, after years of battling weight gain, hair loss, fatigue and conventional doctors…I was free!
It was my own research, and digging into what happens to our bodies as we age, and as our hormones change.
My mother was diagnosed in her 30’s and given Synthroid. She was told there was nothing else that could be done. As time went on and her hormones changed, she got very ill. There was a time that she was so sick on the couch, that I feared for her life.
A few years after that, my hormones started to change before I was the “normal” age for that to be happening. My doctors said my “numbers were low, but I was not hypothyroid”.
I finally found not only a doctor that was on my side but one that listened to my symptoms…not just my blood work.
I changed my diet but stopped following “a diet.”
I changed my exercise regimen, and actually started to feel and look better, without the fatigue.
I started documenting my changes and sharing them with other women that started to feel better as well.
This is how THE THYROID FACTOR came to be.
I created a blueprint of questions, foods, myths, and tips on how to reel in a medical team, know what to ask, and know how to take control.
I want to share this with you if you feel that you have low thyroid, or if you have been diagnosed and are still not feeling your best.
