110 Easy Hypothyroidism Fall Recipes

Mother nature paints this beautiful landscape of rich golden enchanting colors. The sound of leaves crackling benefit my feet as I take a deep breath of the fresh air crisp. My soul begins to feel the  renewed harmony from the hot hazy, hustle and bustle days of summer. In the distance, I hear the gabble of a flock of geese all lined up in perfect formation beginning to head south for the winter. The smell of fall scented candles and Friday night football games lets not fail to forget the fun of tailgating. I have many fond memories of laughing around a bonfire, and staying toasty while enjoying a night out with friends. I just love the way my over sized sweater snugs my skin and the warm pumpkin latte keeps my belly warm. Fall is one of the most packed holiday seasons. This is a season to be truly thankful, and to simply  surround yourself with friend and family that are dear to your heart.

3 Other Things That Can Contribute To Your Thyroid Disorder

Hypothyroidism is the kind of disease that carries a bit of mystery with it. If you’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism by now you have figured out that by merely taking a pill isn’t going address all the other aches and pains your experiencing. Hypothyroidism does have a root cause. Once you start to address these underlying issues only then can your body can start heal but 1st what are you addressing exactly?

Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s like a domino. One thing in your body that is overworked can cause a major shift in how things operate. Sometimes we have to do a little pruning of the branches, in order for the tree to be healthy again. There is not one size fits all.

See we have to get your thyroid isn’t working properly it can wreck havoc on your life. Your thyroid is responsible for so many things. it regulates your metabolism, makes energy, adjusts your mood, helps you sleep, even helps aid in good digestion but your see this is where you come into play. Like anything else in life you get back what you give. Start today following these tips and you will start healing your thyroid naturally.

You have to be in charge of your health.

In my recent blog  21 Tips To start Naturally Start Healing Your Thyroid

I touched on 21 things that you need to do to start healing your thyroid but here are a few other things that weren’t mentioned in that blog that you need to consider that could be contributing to your halting your thyroid from healing.

 

Are you having regular bowel movements?

Our body recycles our waste and hormone byproducts, which can  lead to a toxic build-up in our colons.  When your “backed up” it means that you are circulating blood unclean blood and as a result unclean tissues and organs. This will weaken the health of our organs  and in return they wont function as well as they need too. Your also allowing the rotting food that is sitting in your colon to have a change for pathogens such as parasites, bacteria and fungus to grow which could lead to diverticulitis and or a leaky gut.  A leaky gut allows undigested food, proteins, toxins, cholesterol and fats to pass through into the bloodstream.

Pooping is your body’s way to get rid of waste buildup.  We have two types of poopers in this world: Type A has their pooping down to a science. They go every day at the same time and usually (if they can help it) in the same toilet. ( This is me)  Then there’s Type B. This group doesn’t go that often and has no real ritual to its toilet habits. So, you may ask , is one healthier than the other? The answer is no. Everyone is different. There really is no “normal” habit for pooping.  The average person poops approximately once a day—about 1 ounce of stool for each 12 pounds of her or his body weight. That means a person weighing 160 pounds produces an average of just under a pound of poop each day. Poop is made up of 75% water  the remaining parts are made from a mixture of dead bacteria that helped us to digest our food, living bacteria, protein, indigestible fiber, and waste materials from the liver and intestines. Don’t start to worry if you bathroom habits change. It’s going to happen. We go on vacation & things happen in our lives. As long as your bathroom trips don’t cause pain or discomfort you are pretty much okay. Your digestive system works all day and every day, so its okay if you experience changes from time to time.  If you have  constipation or diarrhea that lasts for longer than weeks at a time or blood in your stool  you need to check with your doctor.

if not please check out my blog Behind the poop. What is your bowel movement secretly saying about your health? 8 ways to get the “poop” to flow

You have cracked feet

Believe it or not your feet are more than using to walk on. They have a lot to say about your health and can be an amazing diagnostic tool to point out potentially  a  whole host of health problems.

People with hypothyroidism commonly have cracked heels.  I am not alone when I say, “I’ve had crusty embarrassing feet”. Cracked heels (Heel Fissures) is a very common issue with people these days and nobody wants to see scaly, cracked and flaky feet. It’s not only super embarrassing but it can be quite painful too. Crusty-cracked heels can also happen when you neglect your feet and don’t moisturize properly which can develop into painful deep cuts. How you take care of your feet does say a lot about how you take care of your body.   Of course, there are many other reasons why your feet can become less attractive and just plain out ugly is lack of moisture, improper foot care, unhygienic conditions, age, Dehydration, Obesity, Diabetes, Kidney disease, hypothyroidism,

or not drinking enough water an a unhealthy diet like deficiency in zinc and omega – 3 fatty acid and wearing wrong type of shoes!

if you have crusty feet and need all natural organic ways to heal them check out my blog 6 home remedies to Heal Cracked and Crusty Feet that work!

 

Chronic Candida

Hypothyroidism causes low body temps which allows fungal overgrowth. Get the temps up and the fungal/yeast will have nowhere to live.”

Our lives already seem to be on hold from our hypothyroidism.  Did you know that an overload of Candida was picked up at birth or shortly thereafter? We were supposed to be getting good friendly bacteria from our mother’s at birth, but “our”  mother’s had Candida overgrowth and unknowing passed it on to us. And over the years, our bodies has become more and more compromised.  Your gut microbes could be dramatically affecting your thyroid health. There is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about Candida.  Both from the medical profession and on the internet. It is easy to get fooled into thinking, as many sites will try to convince you, that all anyone needs to do is to take their product or buy their e-book. Of course, they will all have testimonies. What they don’t tell you in those testimonies is how the Candida came back — in a month or two or in six months. However long it took for the Candida to overgrow enough to start causing symptoms again. It is important to know that dealing with Candida is not an easy fix.

If  you think you have chronic candida read this blog  Chronic Candida Attacking Your Thyroid?

Spiritual Secrets of Hypothyroidism

spiritual-1

I had no interest in becoming a writer. I’ve never cared too much about reading books, writing and being in English class did nothing for me. Upon having finally succumbed to writing , I now realize what no teacher in a classroom couldn’t possibly show me – Writing about Hypothyroidism is actually saving my life mentally, physically and spiritually.

Writing about Hypothyroidism is, in fact,  my life’s triumph on many levels. I am trying to  achieve the impossible while capturing a heart-based approach in the midst of  ill health and unfortunate genetics. As this life proceeds, I find that writing about hypothyroidism takes me into  battle with a remarkably different energy and intention than I’ve ever felt before. The harsh truth is it seems sometimes that we have little control over what the outcomes are and each of us has unique experiences this disease that has been created for us. It makes us feel vulnerable that we are led to believe we have very little control over what may transpire. This is one of the most negative aspects of this cruel affliction. I am no hero but I stand for a higher purpose and my vibration that I want you all to know and feel is that when I am writing about hypothyroidism I have on my  Armour  and my intentions are simply pure protection, grounded in love, filled with compassion and searching for true aspiration.

Writing about hypothyroidism has given me different aspect in my quest. My vision has changed in along the way.  “I did not necessarily feel that we are being heard, taking seriously  and its being sweep under the rug, as other things”.  We have allowed modern day technology along with unknowingly accepting and believing what our doctors  say to make us think that being cured from hypothyroidism is a false belief that our bodies will only heal entirely on medications.

Everything we accept in Western society without question serve to show no purpose to our lively hood and you must realize just how much we’ve been conditioned away from our intuitive instinct.  It’s actually pretty ridiculous and very harmful on so may levels just  how collectively we continue these beliefs that our doctors know everything we know nothing.

I will continue to rise and stand up for you.  Research the truths. Find the answers that so many of us are seeking. When I am told  ‘no’ and ‘I can’t’ .  I will push through and continue to prove that all our lives matter. This is what , ‘It’s what I’m here to do’ and I will continue to search for the truth.

When I am writing, sitting behind my computer , I am not a woman following the rules of a what modern day technology is feeding us. I want you to know that you have extraordinary powers perfectly given to you from God. Just like me, he has  giving us permission to tap into them, and draw on them, at any time, at any place. It’s like a downward flow from a river. We are not a meaningless natural process.  Each of us has a Purpose. We must find that purpose and step into our paths.

You have a spiritual secret that you must tap into that has been giving to you along with your hypothyroidism.

One of the 1st things we have forgotten is to follow nature’s path and live in balance with it. You see you have everything you need to heal your hypothyroidism but you must apply it. Every cell in our body responds to the foods we eat, the products we put on our bodies and the household chemicals that we come in contact with every day.  Take a step back. Look at your life. Read labels and stop over loading your body with shit it doesn’t recognize and certainly doesn’t know what to do with.

Another thing we have forgotten is how what we say out mouths can block our blessings.  Words have power and when you speak the negative thoughts out of your mouth you are blocking your blessings and giving those words power over your life. Negative words and thinking will keep us captive. Stop unknowingly choking your own blessings with negative thoughts and words that you speak.

Prayer for today:

Lord, please help me to get out of my own way so I don’t miss out on the wonderful things You have for me. Help me to remember that Your promises are true and You have always and will always provide my every need. Your word says, that You will bless me, exceedingly, abundantly and above all that I can ask or think.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen!

Breaking the Body Fat Code: Why Some of Us Are Fatter in Certain Area’s, More Than others. Here’s Your Answer!

weightlosswar

Have you ever wondered why people respond differently to diets?

In the last fifty years what has changed in our society? We have the same predisposition genetics as our grandparents.  We are unique and come in all different shapes and sizes.

We can’t blame is all on genetics being unhealthy solely on the DNA that was passed down to us. Everyone’s genetic makeup is different. It’s like your fingerprints.

I was always the tall, skinny, flat chested , flat butt girl in school. I remember being plagued at school for being too skinny. Having no shape. While other school mates were well endowed with large boobs, hippy hips and a nice rounder booty.   Our metabolisms certainly dictate how we use energy and our genetics can dictate how we are shaped but what has started to interests me more-so lately is  why we store fat on certain areas of our bodies when others don’t.

These questions have confused and frustrated people and health care practitioners for decades. But why is it so confusing? One thing we have learned is each of us are unique and have our very own biochemistry that sets us apart from everyone else. Although we might share the same common traits and perhaps the same overlapping metabolic tendencies. We can’t continue to say that one-size-fits-all when it comes to our very own unique body chemistry.  There are over 7 billion people on this planet and we come in all different shapes, colors and sizes. With this being said wouldn’t  you think the one-size-fits-all- approach to losing weight wouldn’t work since we are  we are all unique.

Why is it that one person can eat all they want and never gain an inch, while someone else gains weight just looking at food? The fact is some people are wired to simply burn fat better than others. There are sneaky little things in your body that can halt your weight loss success.

Where you store your body fat isn’t a topic most of us women like to discuss but I feel it is one that will enlighten you and help you more on your journey to a better healthier you.

Every cell in our body responds to the foods we eat, the products we put on our bodies and the household chemicals that we come in contact with every day. Although some of us were born with the predisposition genetics as our parents that gives us our hair color, eye color, height and if we are pear shaped, apple shaped, straight or hourglass this doesn’t mean we can’t win the battle when it comes to our hormones. Our hormones have a direct impact on every major system in our body.  Remember our bodies love balance. Everything has a domino affect so we have to try to figure-out that balance in what our individual body needs are. Whether it be the more fiber , fixing our gut, helping our skin get more moisture, speeding up our metabolism so we can get out of that fat storage mode and into the fat burning mode.

After researching many hours on this topic, I’ve found that where your body stores fat is hint to what is going on with you internally with your hormones. As our hormone levels change with age, pregnancy, exercise, eating habits, or other life events, fat adjusts itself to our every changing hormonal events and places itself in different area’s in our body.  Our hormones have a direct impact on how much body fat we store and where it is stored on our bodies.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know what approach to take to fix those thunder thighs or that muffin top?   Now even with this information its just a stepping stone of knowledge to better equip you a healthier you. So what exactly does it mean to have fat stored in certain area’s of your body and not others?

Love handles/belly:  Love handles often means that you are way to stressed out and when your stressed out it raises your cortisol levels.  it could also be a indicator that you might have adrenal fatigue.  Cortisol adds fat around my mid-section. You are eating to much sugar where you become insulin resistant. If your body is in  constant elevated levels of insulin (a hormone that regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates in the bloodstream) it will accumulate around your mid section. A lack of sleep also may lead to metabolic issues and help encourage those love handles. It also could mean you have  elevated estrogen levels and more insulin production. So what do you need to do? Stop eating crap, those processed carbs and avoid sugar, even the fake sugars which are even more horrible for you. You should also go easy on the exercise, sometimes if you exercise more it adds more cortisol to your body so you are fighting a losing battle, try yoga, more sleep, meditation, Pilates , planks,  lifting weights and walking are good ways to start. Don’t forget fat gained around the waist is dangerous in terms of it increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases. My book Reset your Thyroid . This is a 21-day Meal plan to reset your thyroid and jump start your weight loss journey. It is filled with 21 breakfast recipes, 21 lunch recipes and 21 dinner recipes. They are packed full of nutrients, healthy fats and proteins. All are easy to make and I’ve done all the thinking for you! 

Thighs: Sometimes its our genetic bone structure that was passed down from our parents that gives us more hips or fatter thighs than the next person and other times it can mean that we have elevated estrogen levels. This is the female sex hormone. Thigh fat is a little harder to burn off than belly fat. You can also have fluid retention in your thighs. So many think that fluid retention only takes place only in the abdomen but that isn’t true It actually occurs all over your body. So what do you need to do? Start drinking your daily needed allowance of water. Your body weight and divide it by two. that’s the least amount of water to drink per day and please don’t drink it all in one sitting. there is a think called water toxicity and it will kill you. Space out your water consumption. Choose better skin care products in my blog 21 Successful Tips on Clean Beauty Swaps. I share with your what skin care products are healthier. You want to avoid chemicals such as BPA ( that can be found in plastic containers, water bottles and pretty much anything plastic unless it states BPA FREE) , parabens or phthalates. Your food should be 100% organic and you most defiantly should be avoiding all soy products like the black plague. let’s not forget that getting in a good nights sleep will also help to improve your estrogen levels.  In my book , A Survivor’s Cookbook Guide to Kicking Hypothyroidism’s Booty, I’ve included clean food recipes, recipes for your home and body that are super easy to make, who doesn’t want a healthier home?

Back of Arms: This could mean that you have  lower testosterone levels as well as an excess insulin.Women do have a small amount of testosterone in our adrenal glands and ovaries although this is thought as a male hormone.  Start eating more avocados, as in healthy fats  and fatty fish such as salmon can help improve this area. Try to  avoid all red meat and all dairy products. Start trying to lift some weights.  Building muscle through weight lifting can and may also increase testosterone levels.

Upper Back: This could mean you have lower levels of Thyroxine and higher levels of insulin. Thyroxine  is a thyroid hormone that plays a role with your metabolism and calorie burning rate and this hormone is secreted into our bloodstream.  You can help boost your thyroxine naturally by eating foods such as shellfish, seafood and cruciferous vegetables, avoiding gluten and soy, and increasing healthy fat intake.

 

 

Our metabolism does not decide to burn or store body fat based on calories. It makes these decisions based on the hormones those calories trigger. That is why the quality of calories matters so much….higher-quality calories trigger body-fat-burning hormones while low-quality calories trigger body-fat-storing hormones.

– The Smarter Science of Slim

As the conclusion,  Body fat is important necessity for life. It is our source of energy and it stores some much needed nutrients, a major ingredient in brain tissue.  Moreover, it provides a padding to protect internal organs and insulates the body against the cold.  But yet, getting too fat (more than 30 percent body fat in females and 25 percent in males) can be dangerous and is  associated with increased risk of disease and premature death, regardless of where the fat is stored in the body. As a American society, we are tipping the scales to the point that obesity is now a national health epidemic.

Think about this each time you eat, hormones are released into your body and the type of calories consumed (i.e. fat, carbohydrates or protein) determines which hormones are released and where it is placed throughout your body.  The only way to achieve your goal is to start eating to cater to your bodies needs. Along with proper exercise. I’ve given you all solutions to fight that fat storage on those certain areas of your  body part. I  suggest eating a particular way to combat the hormone imbalances and I know for a fact that if you put forth the effort it will be easily attainable.

There are no shortcuts, stop eating so much sugar, fake foods, exercise more and eat more leafy green vegetables!

Sharing my Secret Life: Don’t Judge: A Day in the Life of the HypothyroidismChick Lifestyle.

pictureflowerlock

 

A day in the life of me!

There are two types of secrets. There are the ones you keep to protect your self-interest And there are the emotional secrets, which you keep because they might break a social taboo that you have with your friends or followers.

We have come to expect “untruths”  from every public forum, starting with the guests on TV chat shows, and ending with hoaxes on Twitter. Social media has made it so easy to blend our lives with others.  The way you present yourself online can be a pretty telling expression of your identity, who you really are and this is why some people choose to keep their social media presence hidden. “Sometimes I want to put content out into the world without necessarily letting just anyone see me”. I don’t want to be left feeling vulnerable. ” If that makes any sense.

 

I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start.  This is what I eat and how my day pretty much goes. I have to say  If you constantly feed your body crap then you are making it susceptible to inflammation, virus’s and disease. I want to help you become successful in your healthy journey by applying the empowering techniques many of my blogs have to offer. This article has been written by a person who has had real struggles with a hypothyroidism but has worked through them. I am going to “keep it real” with you.

I am on a  path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked  it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed. I hope this  Article of me sharing a life in the day of me might help you.

On any  social media site and you will see SHARE buttons. if you find this blog share worthy please do.

Thyroid medication with 24oz of lemon water

Lemons – While lemons are acidic, once in the body they are alkaline-forming, helping balance the body’s pH levels. Packed with vitamin C, lemons can help fight off infections and illness while detoxifying the liver. Additionally, vitamin C may help to neutralize free radicals to help fight aging. Flavonoids, aka Vitamin P, may strengthen blood vessels and combat high blood pressure. A compound called limonene may even combat cancer. Lemons may even aid in breathing at high altitudes (Edmund Hillary, the first may to climb Mt. Everest, attributed some of his success to consuming lemons!).

I also add 1 tablespoon of black strap molasses.

Black strap Molasses- is a sweet source of a powerhouse punch of nutrition. It’s such a fantastic source of iron, many doctors recommend a tablespoon a day stirred into hot water for those with anemia or related disorders. Blackstrap molasses has  a high amount of magnesium. Magnesium helps your skin look  healthy by fighting eczema, acne and wrinkles; and prevents hair loss and nail breakage. The rich iron content of it c can replace some of the iron levels naturally lost through menstruation, while its calcium content may have an even greater effect. Just imagine a natural PMS fighter! Blackstrap molasses can also gently relieve constipation and who  doesnt need help in that area sometimes? It helps your bones become stronger with it high levels of  magnesium and calcium (along with Vitamin D). Helps to relieve stress and anxiety by given you a boost of  Vitamin B6 will raises serotonin levels in the brain. Lowers Blood Pressure and its even low on the GI scale scoring below 55!

Dry Brushing
Listen up my fellow ladies: The benefits of dry skin brushing are freaking fabulous! It Increases the circulation to the skin and reduced the appearance of cellulite. Helps your skin to absorb nutrients by eliminating clogged pores, boost circulation, stimulate the lymph nodes and improve digestion.

Jump on my rebounder for 45 minutes

Rebounding is a super gentle exercise that reduces your body fat; firms your legs, thighs, abdomen, arms, and hips; increases your agility; and improves your sense of balance. It will strengthen your overall muscles and provide an easy aerobic effect on your heart. Along with having excellent detox and immune building benefits it helps the lymphatic system get rid of that metabolic garbage build up which can be dead and cancerous cells, nitrogenous wastes, infectious viruses and heavy metals. With all this being said why are you not rebounding?

Wait 1 hour eat an approved breakfast from my book
A Survivors Cookbook Guide to Kicking Hypothyroidism Booty
Before I brush my teeth a few times a week I coconut oil pull
I also make my own dry tooth paste the recipe is in this book but if you don’t want to do that you can order dirty Mouth or research and find a brand that works for you.

Here is a sample recipe:

Natural Peppermint Toothpaste

1/2 cup coconut oil

3 Tablespoons of baking soda

15 drops of peppermint food grade essential oil

Melt to soften the coconut oil. Mix in other ingredients and stir well. Place your mixture into small glass jar. Allow it to cool completely. When ready to use just dip toothbrush in and scrape small amount onto bristles.

Lunch

Smoothie
1 scoop of Garden of Life Fit
8oz of unsweetened almond milk
2 organic celery stalks
1 small piece of ginger
1/2 cucumber
Handful of organic romaine lettuce

I also add in my vitamins to the mix (yes, I put this in my smoothie since I can’t swallow pills) Your doctor can do blood work to see if you deficient in anything.

Vitamin B Complex
Garden of life Multivitamin
Curcumin
C0Q10
Probiotics
Odorless Garlic ( I pinch a small opening & squeeze it in, discard the shell)
I wait 2 hours then take my iron supplement
Get in 24oz of more water
Somewhere in my day I try to soak up 20 minutes of sun
Snack is normally a Fit Bar by Garden Of life

Dinner

I eat an approved Dinner from my book
A Survivors Cookbook Guide to Kicking Hypothyroidism Booty
Along with My Vitamin C
A few times a week I also have a detox bath or a body wrap
I make sure I get all my water in I have to have no less than 75oz’s per day.
How you calculate your water intake is your weight divided by 2
So if you weigh 150lbs divide that by 2 and its 75. 75oz’s
Never-ever drink your water intake @ 1 time. People have died from that. Water toxicity.
Not every night but if I feel like it 1-2 glasses of red wine or a Tito’s vodka tonic with lime Twist.

I  wish somebody had given me a step-by-step road-map back when I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism. The solutions in this book has helped so many people. I’ve done my best to pull from all their expertise, as well as my own knowledge and clinical experience. I want to make it easy for you to find the answers quickly, all in the one place, because I’m all too familiar with that awful side effects of hypothyroidism. I certainly don’t want you to have to spend years finding solutions, like I did. I also want you to understand that there isn’t an easy “one pill” solution, but the “one pill” approach that our current medical system is using is NOT WORKING because the underlying cause for hypothyroidism is not being addressed. Knowledge is power, educate yourself and find the answer to your health care needs. Wisdom is a wonderful thing to seek. I hope this book will teach and encourage you to take leaps in your life to educate yourself for a happier & healthier life. You have to take ownership of your health.

In this book you will find everything you need to know healing your hypothyroidism. The guess work has been taken out.   I can assure you that even in the toughest cases, you can heal your thyroid.
