my thyroid health today (and a BIG announcement!)

One of the common questions I get asked is, “Is your thyroid disease still in remission? You really don’t take any medications?” Since August 2009, the answer was and still is, yes my Hashimoto’s is in remission, my thyroid numbers remain stable, and I am not taking medications (TSH: 1.553 and TPO: <10 at last testing). But this didn’t happen over night — it happened as a result of healing my “leaky gut syndrome” and systemic yeast infection. It doesn’t sound pretty, but getting those two things under control is what eased the autoimmunity and hormonal imbalance. And these are exactly the tactics I teach my clients.

Though I still monitored my thyroid numbers after being in remission, I’m paying special attention to them recently. That’s because my partner Chuck and I are expecting our first little one! Yes, we’re going to be parents this late summer/early fall and I wanted to let you all in on the big news!

I’m taking extra precautions to keep my thyroid in check during this pregnancy and am also amping up my diet to include “sacred foods” (read: superfoods) for pregnant and nursing mothers. I’m also happy that I’m able to bring all this information back to my clients who are pregnant or wanting to conceive.

I’ll be sending out blurbs of good info on thyroid, pregnancy, and autoimmunity holistic nutrition, as well as the natural birthing choices we’re opting for on Facebook and Twitter, so be sure to follow me there.

Thank you in advance for your support, love, prayers, and advice. I am so happy to be connected with you all. ;)

  1. Wow! Congratulations, Liz! What exciting news! I have three children who are growing up much too quickly! (Two boys, 16 & 14, and an 11 year old girl) Each pregnancy was different and each birth as exciting as the first. I wish you all the best with your pregnancy and an easy labor! (Don’t believe all the stories you hear….labor is a natural process and one that we were designed for.) Thank you for all of your wonderful information here. It has been a great help to me!
