Do you suffer from fatigue, unexplained weight gain, brain fog, sleep disturbances, headaches, digestive problems like gas, bloating, diarrhea or constipation, or even achy joints, regardless of how dialed in you are with your nutrition?  I know, the first thing that comes to mind is your thyroid, but maybe it’s something else.  Maybe it’s the healthy food you’re eating.

Why You Won’t Heal Your Thyroid & Fatigue With a Few Supplements

Do you know somebody who’s taking six, eight, or ten different medications?  I know people who fit this description, and it frustrates us to no end.

Are Your Supplements Helping Or Hurting You?

Before Heather was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and we began to learn and understand nutrition at an entirely different level, we, like so many others, would purchase our supplements at Costco, Walmart, GNC and the Vitamin Shoppe (Amazon wasn’t as prevalent in 2008 as it is today, otherwise we would have likely purchased from there as well).  Why? Because they were …

Sometimes the universe takes you places you never planned to go, but your heart finds a peace there you never expected, and you fall in love anyway.

Is Your Liver Causing your Hypothyroidism?

Everywhere I turn, I run into a woman who has a thyroid issue. Are you that woman?  Are you the one who goes to your medical doctor who runs a thyroid panel and says you’re either “within range” with her numbers, or you’re hypothyroid.  The doctor then proceeds to prescribe you Synthroid or another synthetic thyroid medication. Heck, you may …

Diving Into The Dairy Debate: Is Dairy Good or Bad For You?

For years, our homes have been pumped full of misleading information regarding our “need” for milk and dairy by the dairy industry, their lobbyists, the federal government, and the food pyramid. “Milk, it does the body good” is what they’ve told us – but does it really? The human race is the only species on this planet that drinks milk …

Aren’t we funny how we assume if we’re not getting the natural fat loss results we want, we must not be doing enough fitness, so we’ll just do more? And when the fat loss results still don’t come, we get frustrated and move from “I’ll do more” to “why I am bothering” & stop altogether, stumping our ability to progress. Where …
