In 2008, I learned I had a large uterine fibroid. I was shocked. I was a smart, well-educated and well-traveled woman yet I had never heard the word “fibroid” before. I immediately began investigating what causes fibroids and what I could do to get rid of them. What I learned started me down a path of renewed health and wellness. I changed my eating habits and educated myself on the chemicals that surround us and the dangers of endocrine disrupters and so-called “xenoestrogens.” I want to share with you my top recommendations from this research. The first 14 blog posts represent a time capsule of my learning. Looking back, I am now very grateful for my fibroid diagnosis because I truly believe I am on an amazing journey of self-discovery that might not have begun otherwise.
In 2010, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune variant of hypothyroidism. Additional research in this area has redoubled my interest in healthy living and personal development. I am happy and proud to share that in 2016 my blood work no longer indicated Hashimoto’s antibodies. I’m still at a loss as how to explain this fully. My intuition tells me that is is due to the cumulative effect of all the lifestyle and mindset changes I have made in the past several years.
