Are you one of the 20+ million Americans who suffer from thyroid disease?
According to the American Thyroid Association (ATA) women are five to eight times more likely than men to have a thyroid condition and one in eight women will develop a thyroid disorder during her life. Another staggering statistic is that up to 60% of those who have thyroid disease are unaware of it. (This includes hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or hyperthyroidism.)
I work with a lot of people who feel that they have exhausted all of their options in trying to figure out what is wrong with them and are not sure what to try next. They’ve often been passed around from doctor to doctor and have seen all the specialists, but they still don’t have answers. I know when I was trying to figure out my health issues, I thought no one would ever understand what I was going through. It turned out that I was just talking to the wrong people! It wasn’t until I found someone who was willing to look at the big picture rather than each individual piece of my story that I got what I needed.
