I have over 17 years personal experience with Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis. I acquired knowledge and experience in navigating thyroid medications, dosage levels, reading & interpreting lab tests and implementing a healing diet plan to reduce symptoms and heal the gut.
I understand the time, energy and emotional aspect that goes into making these types of necessary (and at times difficult) lifestyle changes. I also studied the gut microbiome, specifically SIBO and Candida, which were underlying factors in healing my gut and reducing Hashimoto’s symptoms. Read more about My Story.
I adjusted my lifestyle and prepared all meals on a specific meal plan and herbal regimen for 2 years to successfully reduce the bacteria/yeast overgrowth. Search my SIBO Diet recipes in the Recipes section.
I believe in continually learning new ideas and recipes for healing and keep myself up to date on new health trends. I enjoy learning about the microbiome and the mind/body connection as they are powerful influences for healing. View my favorite books on Thyroid, Gut Health & Mindfulness in the Shop.
With my experience of living with autoimmune disease and struggling in the conventional medicine world, I realized how important it is for me to bring nutrition and holistic health to those who are dealing with chronic illness and digestive issues. I truly believe all of my struggles and the passion for feeling healthy led me to this path. That’s why I created Mindful Thyroid Wellness Blog & Health Coaching Program to educate, inspire and nourish other women with Hashimoto’s Thyroid and digestive concerns.
