There is NO tired like THYROID tired.
Vulnerability to infection is a hallmark symptom of hypothyroidism. This is not a surprise when I think about the majority of my life spent catching every cold and flu around me. Thanks to a great thyroid doctor my number of illnesses per year has remarkably reduced. While optimal thyroid treatment is key for those of us with hypothyroidism, I wanted to bring you additional information about natural ways to help you beat the cold and flu.
Thyroid Brain Fog
Pretty sure roughly 1/3 of my life has been spent standing in the middle of the room wondering what I came in here for.
Two years ago, after he kept experiencing severe eye pain that came on periodically and unexpectedly, Marc Ryan discovered he had an autoimmune disease called ankylosing spondylosis. Marc was in pain, exhausted all the time, and could barely get through the day. He was also diagnosed with the thyroid autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
Out of necessity, he had to find ways to effectively manage his autoimmune diseases so that they did not ruin his life and so that he could continue to function. Marc set out on a journey to help himself and he won.
Today Marc runs a busy practice in Los Angeles where he uses a mix of Eastern and Western medicine called functional medicine to help his clients with autoimmune disease. He is particularly passionate about helping fellow Hashimoto’s patients.
On Monday, December 1st at 6PM PST/9PM EST, Marc will be presenting a free live webinar called 5 Secrets to Abundant Energy.
