While this diagnosis was hard to hear and accept, I was glad to have an answer as to why I have been feeling so unlike myself for the last couple of years, with extreme joint pain, rapid weight gain, crazy forgetfulness, intolerance to cold, heart palpitations, brain fog that was never ending, and feeling antisocial and shut down over all.
Thyroid health is very complicated and woven into many other body systems, and even though I would like to think I can manage this complex issue myself, I really need HELP.
And so I am humbly asking again for your support, as little or as much as you feel good about donating~ to help me in my journey to heal my thyroid through a combination of high powered alternative/Holistic treatments as well as using Conventional medicine when appropriate.
I need dental work to get the broken and leaking mercury fillings out of my mouth which has shown to be causing inflammation and toxicity, which isn't covered by my insurance.
The supplements I am taking are the bare minimum I need and are over $500 for a months supply already.
Much of the money raised will also be benefiting LOCAL FARMERS, since large quantities of nutrient rich vegetables and fruits are the foundation of my healing.
I'm doing the best I can with the resources we have had, and have already seen changes like the nodules shrinking a bit, and the Hashimotos antibodies lowering almost 600 points!!!
This gives me hope and inspiration that I can rise above the standard thyroid protocol of
-take out thyroid (which is essential for life)
-take a radioactive iodine pill to kill all thyroid cells in body (but don't spit anywhere or be around your kids and family, because you will give them toxic levels of radioactivity)
-Thyroid replacement for life which has a very low success rate, and in my research 95% of the testimonials say years of up and down debilitating health, weight gain of 100+ pounds inessential than 6 months, hair falling out etc.
Im committed to responsibly exploring other options before having surgery.
As many of you know, this is not my first rodeo with cancer, back in 2011 I had two tangerine sized tumors (fast growing buggers!!) removed from my breast. I declined conventional follow up treatment and carried my own torch as I used Gerson Therapy and thermography imaging as my main allies, for a wonderful outcome of 2 cancer free breasts still to this day!
I couldn't have done it without my friends and family's support, and the amazing fundraising that happened that held me up and gave me the ability to get the support my family and I needed to get through it all.
It has been hard for me to muster up the courage to ask for your support AGAIN~ but because of the myriad of symptoms that have shown up, I have needed to downsize my bodywork practice 90% and rely on my wonderful partner Jacob for support though this healing journey. Jacob is a seasonal firefighter and his last day of work for the season was yesterday, and our budget is suddenly really tight. I'd love to be able to show him the power of my community and take the pressure off of our financial concerns.
I will be posting the website for a blog I am starting with the intention of keeping people updated and share the wealth of information about TRUE thyroid health that I have uncovered in this journey.
Thank you for caring and being part of my extended family. Together we can do ANYTHING.
