After the birth of my second child, 8 and a half years ago, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s disease. I was placed on Synthroid and over the years, the dosage kept creeping up, along with my overall weight, despite a very active lifestyle. I was not only active with teaching physical education classes, but trained for races such as half marathons, marathons, and adventure races. About a year and a half ago, I became extremely frustrated and at a routine appointment with my physician, I point blank asked him if there was anything I could do nutritionally to aid my thyroid. “No” was the response. So, I began researching. A good friend of mine had started working with Stacie Haaga with much success, so I decided to pursue food sensitivities testing and nutritional counseling. It has been a year since I began eating based on my test results and I am so very pleased. I have lost close to 20 pounds, without counting a single calorie, have decreased symptoms, such as fatigue and brain fog, and have decreased my thyroid dosage from 100mcg to 75mcg. My body is healing itself through the food choices that I am making and I’m anxiously awaiting my next round of bloodwork to determine if I can reduce my medication further! Stacie Haaga’s knowledge, support, and guidance has led me on a path to improved thyroid function and overall health. With Stacie’s guidance, you too can start on a path to healing!
