I am embarrassed to admit that I spent not weeks, not months, but YEARS reading articles, pinning quotes, sharing links, following Instagram feeds, and reading books in an effort to crack the code of wellness as it applied to my life. I had what I have now heard referred to as “analysis paralysis.” I could tell you the latest research on paleo diets and their effect on reducing thyroid anitbodies, but do you think I actually applied any of this knowledge in practice?

The Only New Year’s Resolutions I Needed

Below are the three steps I took to stop making excuses because of my health issues… I will never forget the first time I realized my disease provided a benefit – a highly addictive one. “So what do you gain from having an autoimmune disease?”

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis & Epstein-Barr

I want to begin this particular post by making it clear that I am not a physician, nurse, or nutritionist. I am simply an autoimmune warrior who has learned to be become an advocate for my own health. I have spent more than 20 years
