thyroid_healing_concepts

Meditation has been a big part of my healing journey. It calmed my anxiety when I let my disease overwhelm me. It has given me a different mindset to healing. It showed me how to properly care for myself. As well as taught me how to change my state of mind in minutes. This was very crucial for me when I felt at my lowest from my health condition. As I feel my life been so busy, meditating everyday has been pushed to the side. But I have been recently reminded that rewarding yourself for the little accomplishments is the key. So I will be starting a meditation challenge and will be posting all about it in my stories. Feel free to join in as well! #meditation #mindfulness#thyroid #hypothyroid #healthcoach #hyperthyroidism #hashimotosdisease #gravesdisease #thyroidhealing #holistichealth #powerofthemind #invisibleillness #chronicillness #meditationchallenge #thyroidisease #thyroidsupport #thyroidproblems #autoimmunedisease #thyroidhealth #anxiety #thyroidwarrior #thyroidissues #stressrelief #health #positive #holistichealing #powerofpositivity #motivation #conciousness #personalgrowth

Eggs. Gosh I love em - scrambled, poached, fried, you name it & I’ll eat it. But thanks to this food test, I’m highly intolerant to them so I’ve cut them out for the moment. . It’s a bit tricky at breakfast cos I normally eat 2 eggs 🍳 since they’re quick & easy with huge nutritional benefits but now I’m trying to mix it up a bit. . My body does feel better. I’m not sure if it’s this and the dairy I’ve cut out too. I knew my body wasn’t happy with dairy but I couldn’t help myself eating hard cheeses #bringbacktheeggs 📸 @colourandcoconuts

No sweaty “after” photo today cause this is seriously all I wanted to do when I was done. 🥴I have never lifted to failure before and I’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. Hate that my body gave out, love that I don’t question if I pushed myself hard enough. I’m SO glad I chose this program because I love to lift and I love to lift heavy. 👊🏻 — Wherever you are in your fitness journey - if it’s a place where you’re all “something needs to change, but I don’t wanna lift cause I don’t wanna get big”- girl, we need to talk! — I have a hate/hate relationship with the word “big”. It’s vague. For years I referred to myself as big because I’m tall and athletic and that’s what other people called me. You do not need to allow other people’s definitions become your own. (now go back and read that again) It took me a long time to accept my body for what it is and what it just might never be. To be honest, that’s some shit I work on daily. — I was recently talking to a girl on my team about taking flexing pictures. I love them! 💪🏻I love looking and feeling strong and that’s more than just vanity. When you’ve been through periods in life where “strong” might as well be removed from your vocabulary, you find it in other things (and people). What a beautiful gift, and what better way to repay them, than to become what you couldn’t have imagined. — Be strong. Be beautiful. Be you. 💖 — If nobody told you they love you today, I do. If you know something needs to change and you don’t know where to start, slide into those DM’s girl. 💌 — #loveyourbody #selflovefightclub #bodypositive #loveyourself #loveothers #bekind #womensupportingwomen #lift #confidentwomen #confidenceissexy #strongissexy #strongwomen #fitmom #mombod #boymom #preemiemom #gravesdisease #hypothyroidism #hyperthyroidism

It doesn’t stand for what it looks like it should 😂 But it is a complex & confusing (and more common than you think) thing to be diagnosed with, especially with the different “mutation” variants & all of the different illnesses supposedly associated with it, as well as the contradicting research out there! 🤦🏻‍♀️🎗💜 @drbenlynch has a lot of helpful information on this subject 🙌🏼 #mthfr #homozygousc677t #mthfrc677t #mthfrgenemutation #mthfrawareness #bvitamins #methylfolate #autoimmune #thyroidawareness #thyroidproblems #hypothyroidism #hashimotos #hyperthyroidism #gravesdisease #fibromyalgia #chronicfatigue #genes #epigenetics #empowerthepatients #lazzaraawarenessbrand

A few years ago I found a thing. It was completely by chance. It felt so good, so fast, I couldn’t help but latch on to it as tightly as I could. . . I wasn’t looking for a new hobby. I wasn’t looking for a community. I wasn’t looking for a new passion. And I definitely wasn’t looking for a side hustle. . . A lot of times when I talk about coaching, it may seem like I’m looking for fit chicks who wanna use their love of fitness to help others and make some extra money. And...I mean, yeah. I love those people. Coaching is a natural fit for them and they rock it! . . But you know who I’m really passionate about finding? That girl like me. The girl who knows that something is not right. That something is missing. That she’s made for more, but what? The girl who needs some purpose. Who needs something to bring her back to life. The girl who thinks that if she could just get some energy, that she would be a force. The one who knows there’s a fighter in there, under the weight and insecurities. . . When I find THAT girl...when I watch her find her strength and transform. When I see her light come on and start to shine. When her smile changes. When she starts to see herself in the way that I started to see myself... THAT’S what fires me up. . . Fitness made me, but COACHING changed me. It gave me confidence, made me bold, gave me my dreams back. And I’m always looking for women who want to find their fire, get control of their health, and then pay it forward with me! If that’s you...I’d love to connect. ❤️ No fitness experience required. Comment or DM me if you wanna chat. 🔥 . . . . #transformationtuesday

Didn’t feel too awesome on tonight’s workout tbh. But it got done!!! Squatted 95x5 and pressed 20s for a difficult 10. What’s amazing his lateral raises i can still do 20s 😂 Tomorrow I’m undergoing radioactive iodine treatment. I’m not going to lie— I’m nervous. Everyone has their opinions on how things should be handled. Fortunately I’ve talked to several people (some on here!) that have gone through it and it hasn’t affected them negatively at all. It’s the most common way to treat Graves and shoot! Pres George HW Bush got it done and Barbara Bush! After the pill i have to be isolated for a couple days to avoid exposure to others. As my doc said, it’s the presidential treatment lol. Here’s to healing 💪🏼

Don't ever feel bad for questioning your doctors diagnosis. I was told time after time that I was fine, that I was stressing too much or working out too much but I wasn't. I was told it could be a few other things but it wasn't any of those either. I spent months in the dark not knowing what was wrong, all I knew was I was not ok. Don't be afraid to ask questions, lots of questions. If you don't feel comfortable with your doctor switch to another one. I went through quite a few before I found the right one. Don't let your thyroid become a crutch, you're so much more than that. 🦋💪 . . #gravesdisease #thyroid #thyroidawareness #checkyourneck #hyperthyroidism #hashimotosdisease #hypothyroidism #talkthyroid #butterfly

It was a long but fun day with my kiddos and my momma.. headed to Rochester to see my endocrinologist... I’ve been off my thyroid medicine since October and I’m regulating myself!! My Graves Disease is in remission!!! I owe it to my fitness journey I’ve been on! So happy and hope it continues!! #nonscalevictory #gravesdisease #thyroidproblems #dayinthecity #spendingtimewithfamily

January is autoimmune thyroid disease month. #hashimotos #gravesdisease ✨🦋 . YOUR THYROID. It governs the metabolism of your body. This doesn’t just mean “weight loss” as most people tend to think, but the metabolism of your ovaries as well, and adrenals! . Bottom line, your thyroid can be responsible for many issues and symptoms that you may experience hormonally. . Heavy period? Headaches? Bloating? Fatigue? Irregular cycle? Weight gain or weight loss? . It’s not just about testing estrogen and progesterone. There are plenty more hormones that are involved in your monthly cycle. Get tested! . Ask your doctor to run a full thyroid panel on you. You have to ask because when they say they’ll do bloodwork, it does NOT check everything! Ask for: . TSH FREE T3 FREE T4 REVERSE T3 ANTI TPO ANTI TG . Knowing all of your thyroid levels and not JUST your TSH, like the doctors typically only rest, will help you navigate your health so much better 🖤 . . . #wellness #health #lifestyle #workout #healthcoach #iinspire #mindbodysoul #wellnesswarrior #bossbabe #entrepreneur #healthjourney #iinhealthcoach #motivation #wellbeing #nourish #balancedliving #cleaneats #foodismedicine #choosehealthy #holisticwellness #wellnessblogger #healthcoach #thyroiddisease #healthylifestyle #thyroid #hormones #hormonehealth

Week one of the @rawandfree challenge 😬😊 starting my new plant base lifestyle with this challenge. After about a year of thinking and reading about the effects and the benefits this will have on my Graves’ disease I’ve finally made the leap to go plant based 🥝🥕 these wee beauties were from @nadiashealthykitchen and are so delicious. If you like bounty bars then these are for you. So super easy to make as well. #rawandfreechallenge #plantbased #rawandfree #vegan #bountybar #cleaneats #gravesdiseasewarrior #gravesdisease

It's day 15 of National Thyroid Disease Awareness Month and today I'd like to discuss dairy. Like gluten, dairy sensitivity is extremely common in people with thyroid conditions. Dairy products are mucus-forming in many people and are a common cause of irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, and reflux. The protein in dairy has been found to increase inflammation in the thyroid gland and digestive tract. This limits your body's ability to absorb nutrients and heal itself. Dairy can also promote the growth of harmful microbes in your digestive tract such as bad bacteria, yeast, and fungi. The protein in dairy products is called casein and in many people it worsens autoimmune disease just as much as gluten. When we refer to dairy products we mean cow's milk and foods made from it, such as cheese, ice cream, and yogurt. Your best bet for optimum health—treat dairy like gluten and stay away at all costs! 🎗️Knowledge is Power🎗️ . . . . . . . . #EmPOWERThePATIENTS #lazzara #dreambigbeunique #thyroid #joycefornmo #fibromomblog #hypothyroidism #hashimotos #hyperthyroidism #brainfog #gravesdisease #thyroidcancer #butyoudontlooksick #thyca #endocrine #womenshealth #healthandwellness #healthcare #medical #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #chronicillness #chronicallyill #invisibleillness #invisibledisease #support #medical #awareness #empower #nonprofit

In 2016 I was diagnosed with the thyroid condition Graves Disease. Located in the neck the thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body's heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development, mood and bone maintenance. Having Graves Disease meant my thyroid gland was overactive – which explained why I was fainting all the time and why I was experiencing severe anxiety, tremors, hair loss and problems with sleep. ⁣⁣ ~⁣⁣ The photo pictured is of me (hair up) and my friend Holly in London slightly before I was diagnosed. It reminded me of a period in my life where I felt very upset, confused and angry about having Graves Disease and frustrated about not understanding what had caused it or having anyone I could relate to about it.⁣⁣ ~⁣⁣ Like anyone stumbling through their 20’s trying to figure things out - to suddenly be living with a thyroid condition and everything that comes with it was to put it bluntly - very shit. I thought I’d start sharing the things I did to make myself feel better to make others (whether suffering with thyroid problems or not) realise they aren’t alone and things will and do get better with time. ✨

Because not all transformations are physical, or about weight. On the left I just had our baby. Ofcourse, my body would reflect that. What didn't show on the outside was what a mess I was. I was selling the first house I ever bought. The house I fought to buy and was dang proud of it! I had to leave my career that I tirelessly worked for and identified with. A career that meant so much to me. I was about to leave my family,my home,my mom,my almost-everything, to move half way across the country for the first time. Because of it all, I withdrew myself from everyone, I thought it would make the change easier. I was depressed,scared,lost,unhealthy and unsure of what to do. We arrived and I knew then more than ever that i needed to make a change for me and for my family. I'm so happy I did. Sure I have lost weight and inches and actually physically am in better shape than I was BEFORE the baby. I put on a pair of Jean's in a fitting room and for the first time enjoyed it.🙌But that's not all that matters. My mental game is stronger. I have made more friends than I actually had before. I have had the courage to do things I've never done,the energy to homeschool and keep up with two kids,and the realization that even though I don't have a classroom to teach,teaching my own children is the greatest blessing. I get to call many places home. I get to see things I would have never seen. I get to go to Bible study on Wednesdays with so many amazing women. I get to actually experience life now. I'm no longer chained by comparison,the past, day to day working hours,poor health or the many other things that kept me thinking so small. If you feel trapped,there is a way out. If you feel overwhelmed, step back. If you feel yourself withdrawing, have courage to go to someone(I would be that person for anyone). Don't think small,you were made for more! 👊 #type1diabetic #gravesdisease #madeformore #fillmycup #investinyourself #showup #beautifullyandwonderfullymade #postpartum #8monthspostpartum #conquerthestruggle #bringdownyourwalls #daughterofaKing #girlmom #momlife #navywifelife #militaryfamilies #homeschoolheartschool #homeschoolmum #transformheartheadbody

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” - Oprah ^^ The word I chose for this year is evolve. Last year my life shifted unexpectedly and I exhausted myself fighting against the current. I learned that sometimes our lives just change without our consent. And it’s not fair or easy. But we adapt, we adjust, and we move on. This year I will strive to embrace each change with the faith that the plans of the universe are much greater than my own.

Every time you eat, your either fighting disease or feeding it. Having an active autoimmune disease is something I am trying to heal from, and by the grace of god I WILL get there. One of the ways I try to keep my inflammation down is fueling my body with clean, Quality, whole foods. So grateful there are great companies nowadays that make eating well on the go sustainable, and nourishing. Loaded up on tons of greens, herbs, Grassfed meat, and some of my fave bars and treats. Special thank you to all the brands below for helping me on my wellness journey, and Whole Foods for always having the best at my fingertips. Another blessing in my life is I paid off ALL my medical bills today thanks to my health savings plan at my job. #blessed #wholefoods #plantbased #eatyourveggies #farmacy #holistic #groceryhaul #tiuteam #instagood #groceries #wellness #autoimmunedisease #gravesdisease #guthealth #picoftheday #food #fitfam #fitspo @epicbar @nutpods @primalkitchenfoods @hukitchen

Not only are we both (finally!!!) going to school, but I also have a goodie set-up for myself. This past year I showered Mady with some things she’s been really wanting, and in return she’s giving me something I’ve wanted for ages: a half-sleeve 😏 • Near the end of March I will be traveling to Ottawa to get tattooed by an amazing artist. I won’t spill the beans TOO MUCH because I want to keep most of it a secret! 🥰🌿 • #Throwback once again to an October day.

Well this year is off to a pretty nice start. I can say with full confidence that as of today my Graves’ disease is officially under control (like very official)😁 This disease has knocked me on my ass a bit and it will never be completely over, but after 2 years of this crap— seeing my appearance change, the symptoms, the set backs...those days are done. If I’m not 100% I’m pretty damn close to it. I look and feel like the person I was before Graves’... I’m just me again. I realize I’m fortunate, because for most people it’s wayyy worse. And I’m VERY lucky for the loving family and husband I have for constant support. So to the small group of people who actually read this long-ass post: know your body & don’t let any of your own organs attack ya ✌🏻#sorryfortheessay #newyearoldme #meagain #atlast #loveyourselffirst 💙 • • #gravesdisease #hyperthyroidism #invisibleillness #autoimmunelife #thyroidwarrior #🦋

It is beginning to look like this year will be quite the adventure for my little family and I. 🤩💖 • I finally received and accepted an offer from @laurentianu to begin my university studies once again. This time around I will be achieving my goal of a double major: English Literature and Philosophy. 🤓 • A lot of people have asked me what I shall do with it, and to be honest? Not entirely sure! I’m thinking along the lines of perhaps being a professor or a writer. My passion has always been introspection and the written word, and I believe this is the true path for me. 🥰❤️ • And that’s not all! Mady will also be applying to university at Laurentian. She was speaking with an academic advisor, and her course of action is a little more complicated. But! Still exciting! ☺️ • #Throwback to October 2018, one of the last times I was out taking pictures. I miss the outdoors, but right now I am needing to plan, plan, PLAN! 🥴 • See my next post for more things happening this year! • • • #tentreeambassador #tentreeambassadors #livesimplelovenature #northernontario #äiti #finnish #finnishcanadian #tentree #lgbtq #lesbian #perspective #canada #ontario #gravesdisease #adhd #krist2na #greenwitch #earthbasedspirituality #witch #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #nature #leaves #snow #autumn #fall #forest #forestfloor

This was day 2.... A year ago, there would be 7 plates on eash side of the leg press for 8 reps. 1 plate a side now for 12 reps. But hey.... Who's counting. 😂 I'm going to be brutally honest and say that I was so frustrated. I couldn't help but think back to a year ago when I was healthy and strong. This is just the start and I have to keep reminding myself every day that patience and persistence is the key to success. Don't let yourself get defeated by your circumstances . Work hard to face the challenges head on. That's what's going to make the difference. #lifewithgraves #gravesdisease #thyroidproblems #nevergiveup #neversurrender #determined #workingonmygoals #teamlms #lastmanstandingcoaching #bodyculture
