Episode 227: 4 Steps to Living Symptom Free with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (Part 2)

Mar 05, 2024

Last week I shared the first two steps of living a symptom-free life with Hashimoto's. These are the steps I parsed down from 2 decades of my own trial and error, literally hundreds of hours of research, time working with a number of functional medicine practitioners, over a decade of working 1:1 with clients, and expanding my knowledge with programs like Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, Gut Honest Truth Academy, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and Functional Nutrition Alliance. 

I wish I had a shortcut when I was first...

Episode 204: Is Leaky Gut to Blame for Autoimmune Disease?

Jul 11, 2023

Listen In  

Summary 

 I was diagnosed with hashimoto’s thyroiditis (an autoimmune disease of the thyroid) as a sophomore in college. 

I got the call from my doctor while I was standing outside Mother's Market. I remember the shock hit first. Then I forcefully pushed the tears down that threatened to embarrass me in public. 

I thought it was a life sentence. Something that would keep me stuck dealing with fatigue, stubborn weight, and hair loss for the rest of my life. 

After...

Summary 

I’ve been a weight loss coach for over a decade. Which means I’ve shared my story of overcoming disordered eating. I’ve shared the story of healing my metabolism. I’ve shared the story of growing up dancing and battling with body image. 

What I haven’t shared (at least not fully) is my 2-decade-long health journey. 

For a long time I thought no one would be interested. I was told by business coaches of my past that...

Episode 122: Starch... Superfood or Super Villain?

Oct 05, 2021

Listen In

Summary

When you hear the word starch, what do you think of? Pasta, bread, white rice? Weight gain? Blood sugar spikes?

Starch has gotten a bad rap, and in some instances for good reason. The starch in processed carbs breaks down into glucose and does spike blood sugar and contributes to diseases like diabetes and obesity. 

But just like not all carbs are created equal, not all starch is created equal.

Resistant starch is starch that acts like soluble fiber in that it isn't digested in the small intestine by...

Jul 27, 2021

Listen In 

Summary

My narcissistic relationship triggered my autoimmune disease. 

Yes there were certainly other factors at play: diet, genetics, birth control. 

But for years I couldn't speak my mind for fear of retribution. For years I was on high alert, unsure what would set him off. For years I felt like I was crazy, having every word twisted and turned against me. 

My body's defenses were chronically waging war against the ever-present emotional threat and eventually turned on me, attacking my own thyroid...

Episode 60: 3 MUST DO'S to Lose Weight with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

Jul 21, 2020

Listen In 

Summary

In my early years of hypothyroidism, before I was even aware I had Hashimoto’s, I hated my body. I despised the little ring of fat around my tummy, my soft arms, and the stretch marks starting to form on my inner thighs. 

But I’m no victim, I wasn’t going to just stand there and let my thyroid dictate what I looked like. So I got to work. 2-a-day workouts were my norm, combining strength and cardio to burn off every bit of fat I could. I treated carbs like they were the enemy, waiting for me to...

So, you want to know why you're dragging and lagging, even though you consistently get 7-8 hours of shut eye...

I totally get your frustration, that used to be me. I could get 12 hours of sleep and still practically be holding my eyes open.

I was desperate for an answer. I was young, I ate healthier than most people my age, I exercised; there was no obvious reason for this chronic exhaustion I was facing. 

I was willing...
