Welcome to My Thyroid Love - a blog about healing thyroid disease with a mind, body and spirit approach.
My name is Dani, I am based in London, UK and I am studying to become a Wellness and Resilience coach. I am a huge advocate for how lifestyle medicine and holistic health can help people to heal from thyroid disease and thrive whilst doing so.
I have seen from my own experience how powerful lifestyle changes can be in the healing process. I completely transformed my health when doctors dismissed me and told me there was no treatment other than a pill to take for the rest of my life with serious side-effects. If I had left it up to Western medicine alone, I don't think I would still be here today. Thyroid healing involves much more than a traditional Western approach. It requires an approach which combines both Western and Eastern philosophy in order to address the mind, body and spirit.
Self-empowerment is the key to healing.
It is so empowering to know that there are many things that we can do as individuals to look after our health that traditional medicine cannot do alone. Traditional medicine does have a place, and certainly many with thyroid disease depend on it whilst healing - but we can not depend on this alone. It is up to us to take responsibility and be 'partners' with our doctors in looking after our health. After all, you know your body better than anyone - so you should know what works and what doesn’t for you. You are the one who has been living in your body all your life!
I hope my experience of advocating for my health will empower you to do the same. You deserve to live a happy and vibrant life even if you have thyroid disease. You don’t have to put up with the debilitating symptoms forever. It is not ‘all in your head’ - you are not ‘going mad’. It is totally possible to thrive with thyroid disease or stop disease progression and even to go completely into remission. There are more and more people healing from this and so it is not a guaranteed ‘life sentence’ as many of us have been led to believe by traditional medicine.
