5 Daily Must-Haves to Help Manage Your Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism

What to do When Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism Management with Biochemical Interventions is Not Enough

The Case: 

  • Mia has been dealing with Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism for over 2 decades.
  • Her Hashimoto’s wasn’t diagnosed until 15 years after her hypothyroidism diagnosis.
  • She’s done a great job regaining her health but recently hit a plateau and started to regress.

In my years of clinical practice, I’ve encountered countless cases like Mia’s. Despite her Hashimoto’s going undetected for such a long time, she had a remarkable journey to better health. She eliminated gluten and dairy from her diet, optimized her medication, and delved into understanding her Hashimoto’s triggers. She also addressed Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), gut health, and heavy metal detoxification. She even attended retreats focused on limiting beliefs and trauma release.

Despite her efforts, Mia saw her symptoms return including fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, and brain fog, along with rising antibody levels. She hadn’t changed her routine, so she sought my guidance to uncover the missing pieces of her health puzzle.

The Multifaceted Approach to Thyroid Health

Having worked with numerous thyroid cases over the past two decades, I’ve learned that supporting thyroid health requires a multifaceted approach. While biochemistry is crucial, it’s not the only piece of the puzzle. Mia had already made significant strides in this aspect, but there was more to explore. Just as you can’t eliminate every bacterium during a gut cleanse, we can’t address every trigger. Instead, we must focus on what we can, allowing the body to take care of the rest.

Our bodies possess remarkable healing capabilities, but they need the right environment to flourish. Often, our bodies are in a constant state of stress, preventing them from healing naturally. This is why I firmly believe that alongside biochemistry, we must consider our emotions, beliefs, past traumas, thoughts, and even our connection to something greater than ourselves.

Daily Integration of Mind-Body Practices

Mia understood the importance of the mind-body connection and had engaged in programs to address it. However, she, like many, struggled to maintain lasting results without daily integration. I shared a similar experience with a belief workshop I attended. Although I felt lighter and different immediately after the workshop, I didn’t consistently practice the techniques provided. Over time, the benefits waned, and doubts resurfaced.

This pattern can apply to you as well. Perhaps you’ve completed a course or retreat but struggle to apply what you’ve learned daily. It’s easy to get triggered by everyday stressors, from traffic jams to unexpected delays. While activities like meditation and yoga classes help, they often serve as reactive measures. What if we could proactively maintain a state of balance and relation instead of reacting to stress?

Nervous System Regulation for Enhanced Immunity

Maintaining a balanced state enables us to regulate our nervous system. When our nervous system is in check, our immune system functions optimally, even addressing triggers we may have missed. The body possesses innate healing abilities; we just need to get out of our own way.

If you’re thinking, “I’m already so busy with life,” remember that it’s not about doing more; it’s about working smarter. By integrating daily practices that enhance our ability to relate rather than react, we can profoundly impact our thyroid health, immune system, overall well-being, and mood.

Five Practices to Lower Stress and Enhance Thyroid Health

In this episode, I go into greater detail on the 5 things that you can do right now to decrease reactivity and deepen your body connection. These practices can have profound effects on your thyroid, and immune system health, as well as your overall mood and general health.

  1. Use Your Imagination Positively: Focus on what you want rather than what you don’t want. Your thoughts have a profound impact on your body, so be mindful of negativity.
  1. Choose Your Language Wisely: Shift from “have to” and “need to” to “choose to” and “want to.” This change in perspective can reduce stress.
  1. Start Your Day Positively: Pay attention to your first thoughts upon waking. If they’re negative, redirect them toward a positive outlook for the day.
  1. Practice Mindfulness: Keep a part of your attention on a specific body sensation throughout the day. This keeps you present and less reactive to stressors.
  1. Express Yourself: Repressed emotions and an inability to communicate can negatively affect your thyroid. Begin by acknowledging what you wish to express, even if it’s in writing, and work towards open communication.

Mia’s Case Study in Turning Her Hashimoto’s Around

Mia and I focused on integrating these practices into her daily life. While the techniques are powerful, they’re not time-consuming and can be seamlessly woven into your routine. The results were astounding. In just two months, Mia transitioned from feeling isolated and exhausted to meeting an amazing person, relocating to a better place, securing a higher-paying job, and experiencing increased energy. Her thyroid antibodies decreased significantly, and her T3 levels improved. It was remarkable how quickly and powerfully these changes occurred.

If you resonate with Mia’s story, know that there are ways to become aware of and address daily challenges. I’ll be hosting a workshop on this topic to help you clear anything that hinders your thyroid health and immune system. The process is easier than you might think.
