LIVE A THYROID-FRIENDLY LIFESTYLE &
Hi! I’m Annabel.
If you’ve got thyroid issues, you’re in the right place.
I understand how it feels to be told “just take your thyroid pills for the rest of your life, you’ll be fine”. But not feeling ‘fine’.
Over 20+ years of living with Hashimoto’s I’ve worked out how to make diet and lifestyle changes that have helped me THRIVE.
I know it’s not all sunshine and roses when you have a thyroid condition.
I get it. It’s common to feel fatigued, foggy and fat. 😩 I know I sure have.
When you are first diagnosed, it usually comes after YEARS of suffering.
You just don’t have the energy for all. the. things. 😴
🙋♀️ You might have tried a gazillion diets, blood tests, doctors.
Perhaps you’ve been told you’re just crazy or lazy (or both … it’s true, people ARE told this).
After years of this, it’s no wonder your hope for ever feeling like yourself again might be non-existent but I want to tell you, you CAN feel better.
If I can, you can. It takes time. It takes action. It can be an up and down journey, but it IS possible.
NOT SURE WHERE TO START?
HERE’S HOW I CAN HELP
WHAT A THYROID-FRIENDLY LIFESTYLE
MEANS TO ME
My health ‘philosophy’ is that thyroid wellness (well all wellness really), must take a lifestyle approach. We have to be doing little things daily over time.
The key factors that we need to incorporate & that I promote for a thyroid-friendly lifestyle are:
I focus on removing typically inflammatory foods but still eat lots of yummy real food.
I’m increasingly passionate about this. Daily stress wreaks havoc on your thyroid. I love using essential oils as a key part of this.
Loving your body not hating it goes a long way in supporting a happy thyroid and a happy life! I get it, it takes time and beautiful self-talk.
Hormone disrupting chemicals are everywhere and it’s important to reduce your toxic load. Personal care and cleaning products are an easy place to start.
