M. Butterfly: A Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Success Story

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is a type of hypothyroidism and an autoimmune disease that stops the production of thyroid hormones. This affects the body’s ability to regulate its metabolism, the process by which the body transforms the foods we eat into energy, and other functions related to the absorption of nutrients during the digestive process.

Helping M. manage her Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

When M. [not her real name] contacted me looking for help to treat her Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, we found that she was experiencing low energy, was considered pre-diabetec, and that she had been a tempting to lose weight with not much success.

During our discovery call - the first process I take when working with a new client - I learned that M. had been taking a regimen of medication to balance her thyroid for 20+ years and laxatives to stimulate bowel movement every morning. It was definitely not an ideal situation to be in.
