Let’s Talk Thyroid Symptoms:

Puffy Face + Hashimotos

No one wants to describe their face as ‘puffy’!

Puffiness around the face is yet another common sign of an under-active thyroid. The puffiness can usually be seen around the eyes, chin and neck and is a sign of fluid retention.

Apparently it can be worse when our thyroid anti-body levels are high, which makes sense to me as it’s a sign of inflammation.

This photo was taken about a year after I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. You can still see the puffiness around my eyes, chin, neck.

Let’s get practical:

🩸Get your thyroid levels tested – it’s so important to know if this is an underlying cause. Linked to this is getting our medication levels right too. This is critical this is really a symptom that needs to be addressed on a systemic level.

🚰 Be well hydrated – water is good for fluid retention.

🍸 Reduce alcohol and highly processed foods.

🥒 Cucumber and celery are great diuretic foods.

💦 Grapefruit & other citrus oils can be nice – a drop added to your water – makes the water more interesting and is also cleaning. Make sure you use doTERRA. Not all essential oils are suitable to use as flavouring.
