Do you have cold hands, feet, are constipated, no energy, gain weight easy?

Cold hands, constipation and hair falling out are just a few of the symptoms of a very common condition that I see in my office every single day.

Have you guessed what it could be?

It’s hypothyroidism.

Here are a few more of the symptoms.

Fatique, weight gain, depression, insomnia, infertility, oversensistive to hot or cold, poor circulation, chronic pain, require a ton of sleep to function, chronic digestive problems, itchy dry skin,dry or brittle hair, edema,lose of outer 1/3 of your eyebrows.

HOW MANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS DO YOU HAVE?

If you do you may have a thyroid problem.

Generally you go to your M.D. and get your TSH checked.  If it’s out of range then you get some meds for it.  You get re-checked and see that it is in normal range but you still have the symptoms listed above.

You get frustrated when you still feel bad and can’t figure out what is going on.  Then you may start thinking is it all in my head?  It’s not.  You just haven’t had all the thyroid testing that you need to have done.  You need to get your antibodies checked to see if you have Hashimoto’s.  This is a condition where your immune system has gone awry and is now attacking the thyroid gland and starting to kill the thyroid cells.  The TSH levels will look good the whole time but your immune system is attacking a destroying the theyorid.  Thi sis what we call an auto-immune condition.  90% of all thyroid cases are auto-immune and they never ever know it.

I do 1o thyroid checks including the antibody tests to see if you have a thyroid issue and if you have Hashimoto’s.  If you have Hashimoto’s I then use strategies to help calm and balance the immune system down.  One of those strategies is to get your cells fucntioning better so the genes that turn on the antibody reaction can be calmed down.  Diet is huge!!

It’s a pretty restricted diet but it works great.  You want to calm the fire down on your thyroid.  Everytime you eat the wrong foods you are putting fuel on the fire.  Getting specific common foods checked to see if you are sensitive is another blood test we may do.  This helps tell you what those foods are.

Gettign a handle on chemical, physical, and emotional stressors is huge also.

It’s pretty cool to see people feel better, most of they symptoms decrease, and they may even lose some weight on the diet.  Most do.

If you or a loved one have a thyroid condition feel free to give me a jingle.  I just did a thyroid workhop last monday night n which we had 10 people learn about this.  It’s such a common condition and we have good success with getting good results with people.

Ok, last football game of the regualr season for the Chieftains was last friday against Ellsworth.  We took it to them and won 42-6.  Ellsworth was hte #4 team in division 4 to start the season.  Now we have New Richmond this friday and htat should be a good game.  Then it’s off to playoffs.

Hereis a great picture of Riley I took right before the national anthem  It’s my favorite one  Congrats to Meredith Nelsona nd the whole Osceola Chieftain girls golf team for making it to state.  A big way to go!!

Riley Edling in prayer.
