I know, I know. You checked the box for every single one of these yet you go to the doctor demanding your thyroid be checked just to have it come back normal every single time 🙄.
Here’s the deal. Blood labs don’t show the whole picture.
You’re probably wondering how all these symptoms can be related to your thyroid. Well girlfriend, your thyroid runs the metabolic show. When we talk about pro-metabolic eating, we are talking about supporting your thyroid, the main metabolic gland.
Your metabolism is the process that your body uses to transform food to energy that your body uses to function. The thyroid creates the hormones T4 and T3 to control your metabolism. These hormones work throughout the body to tell the body’s cells how much energy to use.
But guess what! YOU CAN HEAL YOUR THYROID THROUGH DIET AND LIFESTYLE.
I repeat. You can heal your thyroid through diet and lifestyle. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
First and foremost figure out what got you to this place. SWIPE RIGHT.
There are all types of thyroid issues and addressing patterns is key. It’s not just hypothyroidism. It’s detective work to figure out if its straight up hypothyroidism, an under-conversion pattern, cellular hypothyroidism, or a brain-based pattern.
What to do about it?
+ Make sure you get a full thyroid panel + have it interpreted by a functional doctor or nutritionist (like myself) to address findings and patterns
+ Markers to request:
Thyroid Antibodies (Thyroglobulin Antibody + Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Antibody)
Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH) Thyroxine (T4)
Thyroxine (T4), Free,
Direct Triiodothyronine (T3) Triiodothyronine (T3), Free
+ Get an HTMA. Thyroid issues will always show up on a cellular level before blood work and 9x out of 10 can be addressed with minerals + diet.
+ Check your basil body temperature. One of the easiest ways to understand your thyroid.
+ Remember everything is connected, it always comes back to your mineral status and gut health!
And most importantly, nourish those cells with an abundance of animal foods, fruits, dairy, and root veggies. And always address stress.
