I get emails, DM’s, Facebook messages every day about Hashimoto’s, so today I share my insight and answers. Just remember I’m not a doctor and I’m not giving medical advice, but I can share my own Hashi journey.
Hashimoto’s Disease is an autoimmune condition that can cause many symptoms, from fatigue and weight gain to hair loss and depression. I share some of the most common symptoms in today’s podcast and some not-so-common symptoms.
Although the exact causes are unknown, accumulated evidence suggests it is primarily influenced by environmental factors like stress, lifestyle, exposure to toxins, genetic predisposition, and diet. We’ll dive deep into those root causes today.
Unraveling the root cause of Hashimoto’s in each case can be challenging, requiring testing for Hashimoto’s antibodies and thyroid hormones and various other tests.
While there is no single “magic pill” way of treating Hashimoto’s, I’ll share a holistic approach to healing.
In this Episode:
- Common symptoms of Hashimoto’s
- Not-so-common symptoms of Hashimoto’s
- What to eat with Hashimoto’s
- How to identify root causes of Hashimoto’s
- How to work out with Hashimoto’s
- What supplements to take with Hashimoto’s
“Women are three times more likely to develop Hashimoto’s than men.”
“Some other common symptoms are depression, anxiety, constipation, joint pain, and muscle aches that move around the body with no clear mechanism of injury. What does that mean? It’s not like you fell or you move weird. You just, this pain that moves you around the body with no clear explanation for that injury. Probably because it’s not biomechanical, it is coming from having low thyroid function.”
“It is a way of building nervous system resilience. It’s about doing the hard thing, picking up that heavy weight, and then putting yourself back into that parasympathetic state really quickly and effectively and strategically so that you can deal with the stress that comes up in other parts of your life when you’re not lifting.”
