In the summer of 2018, I was diagnosed with Graves' Disease which is a debilitating autoimmune disease that is caused by the malfunction in the body's disease-fighting immune system, that results in the over or underproduction of the Thyroid hormone, (Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism). Although some common diet-related disorders may result in Graves' Disease, the exact reason as to why this happens is still unknown.
The symptom management options presented to me by doctors were to have my thyroid removed and take radioactive iodine, synthetic hormones and beta-blockers for the rest of my life. These options were not acceptable to me, so I decided to research homoeopathic treatment for endocrine diseases. This research sent me on a journey of learning not only about the body and how it works but about myself. I was also connected with an amazing Holistic Endocrine Specialist, who was instrumental in my healing success.
Graves’ Disease can take approximately 3-5 years to stabilize and can take up to a lifetime to correct. As of March 2019, due to receiving the holistic treatment method which included, modifications in diet, stress management, lifestyle and mentality changes, I am thankful that I am completely Graves free!
Although this was an incredibly difficult journey, I had an amazing support system. I felt compelled to not only share my journey and my doctor with the world but to also be your support system, so that you too, can use foods to overcome this condition. Eating to live and not living to eat is of paramount importance to this mission and the success of the people.
We want that success for you too!
