As soon as she came to me, these symptoms screamed out Thyroid imbalance, so I conducted a FULL Thyroid panel test. NOTE: the issue with the Thyroid (and Thyroid testing) is that doctors will commonly only check the "TSH" - Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, if that comes back "in the normal range" you are considered "fine". THIS IS RUBBISH! The Thyroid is a complex endocrine gland and there are multiple aspects that need to be tested before we can declare wether it is in OPTIMAL or even functional health....Just checking "TSH" is LAZY and cruel to patients, and I have had enough!!!!!!!!
It is the most undiagnosed / misunderstood / unrecognised health condition we are faced with in modern times, there are thousands of people walking around Australia with a misdiagnosed Thyroid condition and suffering unnecessarily!!
What do we need to be checking, to PROPERLY assess the Thyroid?
-Reverse T3 ratio
-Thyroid peroxidase ab.
-As well as assess Iron levels, Selenium, Iodine and Tyrosine intake and deficiencies
So what happened with this client? Sure enough; her blood tests came back to me indicating Hypothyroidism (Under functioning Thyroid), answering where ALL of her key symptoms have stemmed from. Now we know what we are working with we can use the power of whole foods, nutritional support, lifestyle balance and emotional wellbeing support to get this beautiful lady back on track and feeling filled with life again.
PEOPLE: trust inner instinct! women aren't born with intuition for nothing, we have this gift of being able to tap into things to find answers, we just need to trust this and use this when it comes to our health. Don't settle for answers that "don't feel right"
Lots of love to all xx April xx
