  1. Your story is the same as mine! I was so sick after two years of taking levothyroxine that I felt I could no longer get through the day without a nap. I would drive home from work thinking about how good it would feel to be home and put my feet up. The anxiety, the palpitations, the brain fog, the exhaustion. My doctor diagnosed me with some type of autoimmune disease but she couldn’t figure out which one!

    I was too tired to do anything, let alone read about cures when I got home from work. Then on a day off, before I had a chance to get too tired, I looked up thyroid dysfunctions to see what other people were doing. Armour came up and I scheduled an appointment and, begged my doctor to prescribe it for me to try. Almost immediately I had my life back. That was about six years ago. But like you, I still had other issues; skin, hair, SIBO. I decided on my own try gluten and dairy free for 30 days. That lasted over a year, and I felt great. Without trying, I lost weight, had even more energy, and things looked good. Unfortunately, I didn’t trust my instincts, and slowly the occasional baked good or cream in my coffee started happening more often. While I still feel good overall, I could be better. My hair is thinning again and my middle is thicker.

    Reading your series tonight inspired me to go back to the dairy and gluten free life. Starting NOW! Thank you for that. Also, if you’ve never heard of Suzy Cohen, you may want to google her. She is a wealth of information on thyroid issues and I know that because of her, I am so much better today than I was six or seven years ago.

    I wish you continued health and wellness.

    1. Michelle, hooray!!! It’s funny how quickly old dietary habits can make their way back into our lives when we start feeling good. I’m happy you are starting to see the signs that you may need to return back to the gluten and dairy-free way of life because those are the simple changes that really work! Thanks for reading and taking the time to share your story, Michelle.
