A Poor Functioning Thyroid is the Victim of Something Else Brewing in the Body

Most people think that their thyroid (or absence of) is the reason for their inability to lose weight or even keeping it off.
In fact, that’s what some specialists may say
This is completely backwards and absolutely wrong
It seems that when our thyroid goes astray, their go-to solution is to destroy it or prescribe medications.
Then, when we are left with the aftermath of weight gain, a poorly functioning body, and many ghost like symptom’s.

You may hear your specialists say:
“Keep taking the medications , we can adjust them as we monitor your blood work and we will figure it out as we go on.”
The major problem is that medications or removing the thyroid doesn’t figure out what the root reason of having hypothyroidism is in the 1st place.

What has changed? You are lucky if you do improve but most end up back in the same cycle of weight gain, achy joints and muscles along with your energy plummeting.

And here we are struggling with this weight for the rest of our lives.
The standard advise to help shed those pounds actually makes weight gain worse.
Bootcamps, fad diets, shakes, and pills tend to dig  people into a deeper hole.

Your  poor functioning thyroid is something completely else brewing inside your body.
And that is the relentless build up of inflammation, stress, and toxins that aren’t being addressed.

When you look in the mirror, do you see a stranger?

I know, I have for many years. Who was this person that clearly isn’t me starring back at me in this mirror.
I felt trapped inside this layer of skin that was inflamed, stressed, full of toxins and overweight.
If this is my current life then looking at my future self really scared me.
If I was experiencing so much unhappiness now when I looked in the mirror or having this much pain now, what will it be like later?

We must break the cycle and stop repeating it over and over.
We must focus on the root cause by eliminating the inflammation, de-stressing the body and supporting it in letting go of the toxins to allow our body to stay literally pist off  and unable to heal itself naturally.

What the F#@%, Hypothyroidism?

Bio-individuality is a Fancy Word For Personalized Nutrition. How Can You Use Personalized Nutrition to Begin to Heal With Hypothyroidism?

Bio-individuality is a fancy word for personalized nutrition.

There is a new word being coined for an old topic . It’s called bio-individuality.

Bio-individuality is a fancy word for personalized nutrition.

Bio-individual diets aka personalized nutrition plans have been proven to help a person begin to heal because frankly just general health recommendations don’t and won’t always work, therefore people need to use bio-individuality aka personalized nutrition plan to figure out what is the best fit for their health care needs.

I’ve been writing about bio-individuality aka personalized nutrition for years because we are all wired differently and what works for one many not work for another. Also, we have different health issues plus gut microbes. I certainly didn’t need a scientist or any fancy computerized algorithm to confirm what I’ve been writing about this entire time.

Personalized nutrition simply caters and is tailored to an individual based on any health issues such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes,  high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disorders, cancer and whatever else is going on within the walls of your skin.  Genetic history, current blood work and food intolerances are also taken into consideration. Other things that need to be taken into consideration is gut microbe along with blood sugar balances.

The first results from the Personalised Nutrition Project, run by leading researchers in Israel, are due to be unveiled on Friday at the Human Microbiome conference in Heidelberg, Germany.
The project challenges the idea that general recommendations about healthy foods are suitable for everyone, and instead aims to produce optimized diets based on people’s unique biological make-up.

Personalized nutrition is ambitious, rigorous and vague because if you don’t know the person you are working with then its throwing away time.

Personalized nutrition can be very liberating for people and provide an eye-opening experience that in reality, healthy eating does not have to be as limiting or depriving as they perceive.

The human gut microbiome is being recognized more and more as having a fundamental role in our human health and physiology. Gut microbiome is has been proved to be affect more by the environment than by their genetics.
*Scientists and researchers believe the tailored diets could help stem the rising tide of diabetes, heart disease and obesity, by personalizing people’s daily meals and so helping them to adopt healthy eating habits.
*Scientists have created bespoke diets using a computer algorithm that learns how individual bodies respond to different foods…

One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is a nutrition plan that are specific to your needs and health conditions to ultimately help you meet your goal.

“For example, someone with a hypothyroidism, high blood pressure and chronic insomnia often has to limit or eliminate many types of foods that would traditionally be deemed healthy for others. Also it also should personally tailored to your glucose food responses, along with what health issues your have, your lifestyle and your gut microbe.

This is why the size-fits-all diets dont work for people and although friends and family members may have good intentions their good hearted diet recommendation could actually complicate an individuals health condition even further.
Personalized nutrition isn’t simply a way for you not to eat certain foods or to concentrate solely on consuming others. It’s a completely new lifestyle approach that also incorporates fitness, stress reduction and becoming a healthier you.

I’ve been writing about bio-individuality aka personalized nutrition for years and I talk about it in many of my already published books.

Bio-individuality is a fancy work for personalized nutrition.

The Power of Support for Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto Patients

 

A strong support system can help people manage the stress of their illness, both emotionally and practically. Part of life is experiencing ups and downs. Research has shown that having a support system has many positive benefits, such as higher levels of well-being, better coping skills and a longer and healthier life.  Some people react better with a large support group, while others need a smaller support system.

There are many different layers of support that people develop and create around them only help. Your support system can come in many forms—like a family member, a mental health professional, your pet, a faith-based community, a clergy member, a neighborhood, or a support group—and it will vary from patient to patient.

Each person who experiences hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s  experiences it differently.

Illness is a unique experience that each individual responds to differently and that looks different for everybody. “I feel like every person has a cup. You need to always leave room at the top and always try to replenish that cup in some way.” Support groups within the community can be helpful or in an online chat group but if you try to talk to people who are walking a parallel process like you they tend to understand better. It’s as if they have walked in your shoes.  Finding a good support system is so important.

The bottom line
Remember that a goal of building your  support team  is to reduce your overall stress level, not add to it. Be mindful of  situations that seem to drain your energy. For example, avoid spending too much time with someone who is constantly negative, critical and unhealthy behaviors. Negative people can drain your energy and bring you down.

It does take time to build a support network but it is a wise investment not only in your mental well-being but also in your physical health and longevity. Start making more friends or improving the relationships you already have. It doesn’t matter if you’re the one getting the support or the one doling out the encouragement, you will certainly reap the rewards..

How to get out of survival mode Tip #4: Avoiding Sneaky Thyroid Disruptors Sneaky Thyroid Disruptors

There are many things in your life moving forward that need to be changed where you can begin to heal. Cleaning up your endocrine disruptors is only one part of the puzzle.
#4 Let’s identify and address those sneaky thyroid disruptors

Endocrine disruptors are tricky chemicals that play havoc on our bodies. They increase production of certain hormones; decrease productions of others; intimation hormones; turning one hormone into another; interfering with hormones signaling; tells cells to die prematurely; competing with essential nutrients; binding to essential hormones and accumulating in the organs that produce hormones.
Our bodies are completely bombarded and overwhelmed with the constant exposed to toxic chemicals through the air that we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat, the personal care products and cleaning products we use.
Every Cell in your body responds to the foods you eat, the products you put on your body to the house hold chemicals that you purchase for your home. All of these things have a direct impact on your hormones and in return your hormones have a direct impact on every major system in your body. Not to mention that our body is lacking certain nutrients that heavily influence the function of every cell in our body.
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. Again, there are not one size fits all nor any magical pill to swallow when it comes to healing your hypothyroidism.
As we have all found out when your thyroid isn’t working properly it can wreak havoc on your life. Your thyroid is responsible for so many things from regulating your metabolism, making energy, adjusting your mood, helping you sleep, it even helps aid in good digestion but you see this is where you must come into play.
Like everything else in life you get back what you give.
For example, imagine a car. Its parts are specialized and they each perform specific tasks, but yet they all depend on each other. The human body is the same way. When one thing is being over worked or needs repair it puts a strain on the rest where they can’t perform their specific tasks as designed.
Did you know that it takes 26 seconds for the chemicals to enter into your bloodstream? Most commercial personal care products are full of endocrine disrupting chemicals that wreak havoc on our hormones. On average women use 9 personal care and cosmetic products per day and this can add up to a mixture up its about 126 different hormone disrupting chemicals and add this to the toxins you’re exposed to each day when you got out into the world. Over 1000 of these ingredients have already been banned in Europe but not here in the United States where our FDA has only banned 11 of those ingredients in our personal care products.
These chemicals in our body products, our food, our beverages, the vaccines and the pharmaceuticals create a breeding ground for sickness. Have you heard of gene mutation? It’s when the cells are changed by chemicals they are either damaged, lost or copied. These processed foods that are full of man-made chemicals, fluoridated municipal tap water, genetically modified foods, refined oils, herbicides like roundup, Artificial sweeteners, Vaccines and the yearly flu shot – often contain mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and MSG. Pharmaceutical medications and a lot of the Pharmaceutical medications are loaded with fluoride, OTC (over-the-counter) medications for colds, allergies, headaches, anesthetics, anti-anxiety medications, antidepressants, antifungals, cholesterol-lowering medications, chemotherapy, appetite suppressants, arthritis medications, steroids – often contain heavy metal toxins, artificial sweeteners and toxic industrial-based food dyes. Let’s not forget to mention the over use of antibiotics, antacids, aspirin, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) which completely change the environment in our gut.
So may products in the environment are laced with chemicals that are known to be endocrine disrupting, which means that they can block or mimic the natural hormones. Here is a list of endocrine disrupting things in your life that you can take control of and change.
