    Autoimmune Thyroiditis from Fertility to Post-Partum with Dr. Jolene Brighten

    in Health

    I had a great conversation on the podcast with Dr. Jolene Brighten, ND about thyroid conditions, and how they effect our fertility, our baby's health and our own post-partum health.

    I would say that we speak the most on the subject of post-partum, as it's a subject close to my own heart, as well as Jolene's, who discovered well past childbirth that she had post-partum autoimmune thyroiditis.

    One thing I think is important to understand deeply is that our reproductive stages are linked, and minding this continuum is critical to our health as we try to conceive, carry a child, and then support a new baby.

    Dr. Brighten talks about:

    Why and which thyroid markers to test pre-conception
    How an untreated thyroid condition can lead to miscarriage and developmental deficits
    Why it's important to test thyroid markers in weeks 6-12 of pregnancy if you are autoimmune thyroid
    Why changes in our immune system potentiate thyroid imbalance after childbirth
    Which underlaying factors to consider of you have autoimmune thyroid
    Why getting support is needed for post-partum health complaints

    If you are an autoimmune mom, a mom suffering with post-partum symptoms, a woman diagnosed with autoimmune thyroiditis, or someone curious about thyroid disorders (which are highly on the rise in women,) I think you'll benefit from the info-packed interview with Dr. Brighten.

    Radio Show: The Thyroid-Gut Connection

    in Health

    In this show you’ll learn:

    How the Gut-Thyroid-Immune Connection impacts your energy and what you can do to restore balance.
    What your Gut Bacteria has to do with your Thyroid, and how to rebuild, repair, and restore your energy by feeding your microbiome
    How you can heal the Gut-Thyroid Axis  and recover from autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.


    Hippocrates said: “All disease begins in the gut.” 2,500 years later we’re just beginning to understand how right he was. And hypothyroidism is no exception. Poor gut health can suppress thyroid function and trigger Hashimoto’s disease, and low thyroid function can lead to an inflamed and leaky gut.

    Join Dr. Ritamarie as she discusses the influence of thyroid hormones on the gut.  Low thyroid hormones make it difficult to heal the gut, and an inflamed and leaky gut contributes to just about every disease there is, including hypothyroidism. Fixing the gut is often the first – and most important step.

    Dr. Ritamarie is the founder of the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology, and has over 23 years of clinical experience as a functional medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist.

    To every woman looking to create a healthy, happy home life for her family.

    in Health

    Today I'm chatting with a mother who not only had to overcome her own health challenges, including Thyroid disease and "wicked PMS", but also had to find delicious and unique ways to transform her kitchen and home into a safe and healthy haven for her whole family. Meet Cindy Santa Ana...

    "By age 25, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (an autoimmune thyroid disease). I didn’t give my diagnosis a second thought. I took my prescribed medication and assumed that feeling tired, cold and headachy was my new way of life. 

    I also suffered from frequent migraines, chronic bronchitis and low energy...

    Years later, after having two children, I became very tired all the time, had horrible allergies, frequent colds, sinus infections and bronchitis as well as frequent migraines, wicked PMS and high cholesterol. I was also about forty-five pounds overweight and was falling apart by the time I hit forty years old!" - Cindy Santa Ana, Unprocessed Living

    Listen in to hear the next part of the story - how Cindy took back her health and got her family on board too!

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Find Your Root Cause with Izabella Wentz

    in Health

    If you have Hashimoto's but haven't gone into remission (it's possbile!), then I recommend you tune into this show.  If you have a thyroid disorder, but haven't been checked for anti-thyroid antibodies, tune in as well.  

    If you have unexplained fatigue or an inability to lose weight, then listen in to learn if your thyroid may be involved.  Lastly, if you'd like to avoid autoimmune diseases in your future, come and learn more about how these diseases progress, so you can make the best choices now.

    Izabella Wentz was a young woman, newly married and professionally trained as a pharmacist, when she found out she had Hashimoto's Thyroiditits, an autoimmune condition in which the body's immune system is mistakenly attacking the thyroid gland.

    She began a passionate exploration on the origins of this disease, and began to journal her findings and self-experiments.  Her efforts got her into remission, and also produced her in-depth book, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis:  Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause.  Her book was a 2014 New York Times Bestseller in the health category.

    What she discovered was that her disease process had begun many years earlier, with symptoms like frequent colds and an irritable gut.  She also discovered the way to unwind her symptoms and ultimately halt the progression of the disease.  Check out Izabella's website here.

    Healing Hashimoto's Naturally with Jen Wittman

    in Health


    True healing begins with TLC. If you’re like me, life with a thyroid or autoimmune disorder has been a bumpy, discouraging ride. It can feel like no one is listening and that even your doctors don’t really get it. Sometimes you just want to give up. It doesn’t have to be this way. The many (many!) symptoms of thyroid, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases can be dramatically reduced or even eliminated by reconnecting to your body’s own healing ability. I know because I’ve done it and in this book, I show you how to jump start your healing so you can live the vibrant life you desire. If your experience of health care has been frustrating and impersonal, with rushed office visits, a trickle of information and an avalanche of prescriptions, then prepare yourself for something quite different. Complex problems need loving solutions. You can reverse or even eliminate thyroid, autoimmune and inflammatory dysfunction as I have done by using the powerful tools of self-love and self-care. In Healing Hashimoto’s Naturally, we delve into what healing is and how to do it. My holistic approach to healing means taking the time to know you, to address your unique mind, body and spirit to resolve disorders that many mistakenly consider “incurable.” I invite you to dive in to my story. I think you’ll see some of yourself amongst these pages.
