everyone and welcome to my Break the chains of hypothyroidism
(also commonly called underactive or low thyroid) is a condition that
I have been living with for several years now and
in this time I had a “pleasure” of meeting many of its unpleasant
symptoms. I’m a very active person by nature, so what affected me the
most was this incredibly persistent fatigue that just wouldn’t go
away, no matter how hard I “pushed”.
omnipresent fatigue state almost completely drained my energy (and
being me I could never settle for “always being tired”) so I
pushed the limits of my body frequently to get back in my usual
you might imagine that didn’t go over so well (It never does) and my
symptoms worsened. I was exhausted, but I actually felt guilty about
resting, (thinking myself lazy) all because I used to be much more
productive each and every day before the condition.
kept buzzing and jumping from one task to another, thought I have to
do everything by myself and that didn’t go improve my situation
either. My path was leading me to a little place called Nowhere 🙂
I FOUND MY WAY OUT
story started back in 2013 after giving birth to my first child, when
my immune system just couldn’t bounce back. I spent almost a year
with a case of intense brain fog, being totally drained of energy and
stressed out of my mind when doctors finally diagnosed me
soon as I started taking my prescribed medicine I actually felt
better – for a short time. Euthyrox successfully tended to my
symptoms, but did very little to combat the actual source of my
I got pregnant again and Hypothyroidism returned with a vengeance as
my thyroid gland produced even less hormones.
back, those were really hard times for me – constantly felling
helpless, lifeless and irritable despite the increased dosage of the
medicine I was taking. Two really small children, an active family
life, I really was I challenge to say the least. My husband massively
supported me at that time and I would probably be in a very different
place If not for him. 🙂
then my children got a little bigger (as they tend to do) and I
managed to get a little of “me time” back. I started my research
and in time found solutions that actually deal with the source of my
condition, not just masking the symptoms.
but consistently I transitioned to a healthier lifestyle and my ever
present fatigue started to fade away.
I wasn’t just “fatigue situation” that got better – a lot of
other things improved too: I lost my weight, I can think clearly
without that pesky brain fog again, I have far fewer headaches, my
skin and hair are no longer so dry, tingling in my hands is no longer
there and my mood is undoubtedly, incredibly better.
I feel like I got my life back! I am a better wife, mother and on top
of that I am able to do all the extra activities that my condition
was depriving me of.
still have bad days, sure, but back then almost every day was a bad
day because of hypothyroidism. And unfortunately this is not a
condition where you just pop some pills and you get better. Pills are
a starting and (unfortunately) the most widespread point for majority
of people. And like I mentioned before they only deal with symptoms
of your condition not the root of it, which can cause serious
consequences for you in the long run.
order to improve your condition at its core, I recommend that you set
your sights on some key lifestyle changes which are actually very
cheap AND very effective – and I’ll be posting about most of them
regularly on my site.
put I want to share my knowledge and experience so everyone afflicted
by hypothyroidism can deal effectively with without wasting your time
and suffering trough non working magical cures.
