Overview
Do you have an underactive thyroid? "I'm tired. I'm losing my hair. I can't lose weight. I have bad moods and feel like crap. They said the blood work is all fine. It's probably just stress." Hashimoto's thyroiditis is the most common cause of hypothyroidism—underactive thyroid—and the most common autoimmune disease in the world. Unfortunately, it's often not diagnosed properly, and when it is, monitoring or medication are the only options offered. As a result, many people suffer for months or even years without a diagnosis, and those on medication may still feel unwell, unable to live their best life. But this doesn't have to be the case. If you have an underactive thyroid, there is much you can do yourself to improve your symptoms and live more optimally. Your life should be more than just a matter of surviving day-to-day. Empower yourself so you can start to improve—today—wherever you are on your healing journey.
