I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease back in 2009. Here’s my story of how I reversed my thyroid autoimmune disease with diet, detox and lifestyle.
In 2008 I suddenly became very sick, and for nine months, I couldn’t find a doctor who would really listen or run any tests. They most often told me I had dry skin, handed me a tube of steroid cream and moved on to the next patient.
I had hives from the neck up, all the skin on my face and neck peeled off twice a day, my hair was falling out, and I was depressed. I spent my days and nights with ice packs on my face because my skin felt like it was burning. I cried a lot. I stopped outside activities and just stayed home.
After nine painful months, I finally found a doctor who listened, thought about potential causes, and ran tests. In 2009, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease – a thyroid autoimmune disease. The doctor offered to prescribe a medicine called Synthroid, but didn’t provide a hopeful prognosis.
