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 25+ 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, you CAN feel better.

If I can, you can. It takes time to find your unique thyroid-friendly lifestyle. It takes action.

It can be an up and down journey, but it IS possible.

I’m here to offer you positive & practical help, so you can start your thyroid journey with hope, confidence & tools!

Remember to KISS (Keep It Super Simple),

Welcome to my thyroid-friendly community!

I have written a book about it to help you and your thyroid thrive.

Please note: This book was originally published under the title Kiss & Make Up With Your Thyroid. It is the SAME book (just a new title and cover). If you purchase the paperback directly from me, you will receive the original (limited edition) print.

I host a fabulous PODCAST called Let’s Talk Thyroid

It’s a mix of my experiences and interviews with thyroid experts from around the world and people sharing their thyroid stories. If you want to get a feel for who I am and what I’m passionate about, this is a good place to start. It’s available on Apple Podcast, Spotify, YouTube or your favourite podcast listening app.

Shownotes & links are here.

I believe you feel best when you live a thyroid-friendly lifestyle!

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:


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.


I’m increasingly passionate about this.  Daily stress wreaks havoc on your thyroid.  I love using essential oils as a key part of this.


I focus on removing typically inflammatory foods but still eat lots of yummy real food.

(You’ll find lots of thyroid friendly recipes on my other website, whannabelcooks.com or in my cookbook).


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.



These are all explored in:



Suspect you have a thyroid issue? PLEASE trust your instincts and get it thoroughly checked out with your health practitioner. This thyroid basics page has an overview of what tests to ask for and an affiliate link to use a private lab if your doctor won't order them.
