Sick, Scared And Desperate: A Personal Thyroid Story Of Recovery

Thyroid story

I don’t really talk about this very often, because it’s pretty painful for me to revisit this time and think about it today…

…but in 2003 which is about 17 years ago now, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and autoimmune Hashimoto’s disease right after my second sinus surgery . Finally, there was an explanation to my weight gain, fatigue, lack of energy and slow recovery after the surgery.

While this was just the beginning of my thyroid healing journey, at the same time I found myself in a fairly desperate situation:

I was scared to learn that I have an autoimmune disease and there is an ongoing autoimmune attack on my thyroid. The thought that it is an incurable life-long chronic condition didn’t seem to be real for me.

I was desperate to get better and get back to living and enjoying my life but nothing seemed to make me feel better.

I was sick and didn’t know what to do because back then there wasn’t reliable information available to patients as it is today.

And the worst… my doctor told me that the T4-only thyroid medication was my only option and I have to take it for the rest of my life and… it didn’t make me feel much better.

I spent years of researching and trying different things until I discovered what worked for me and got better. Seven long years to be exact.

But let me tell you this…

Today is different because you don’t have to become an expert, do your own research about your thyroid condition, try to figure it all out on your own and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars doing it.

There are many people who have already done this and are willing to share what works and what doesn’t so that you don’t have to make the whole process a second full-time job.

You don’t have to do all the heavy lifting and can learn from the mistakes and wisdom of others who have already experienced positive results.

And now, it’s your turn.

Today I would like to introduce you to somebody who has a very similar thyroid story just like me and so many of us.

Meet Kinsley Jackson

For some reason seven years seem to be a magic number for both of us… Kinsley was also struggling with thyroid disorder for 7+ years and it had substantially incapacitated her before she found a solution and improved her symptoms.

Here is her story:

At first, I just gained weight and felt exhausted 24 /7. But that was just the beginning.

My joints started aching so badly that I needed a wheelchair to get around…

And just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse… it did.

My beautiful hair that I prized so much began falling out in clumps due to a condition called alopecia – and it made me ashamed to even be in public.

Take a look for yourself:

All of these symptoms were due to my sick thyroid… and if you’ve been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, hypothyroidism, or any other thyroid disorder, today I’d like to share with you how I finally recovered after more than 7 years.

You see, the real difference maker had nothing to do with conventional medicine. Instead, it had to do with how I treated my body at home.

Inside my new book The Thyroid Reboot: A Step-By-Step Guide To Help Support Your Thyroid And Reclaim Your Health, I’m holding nothing back and giving you every tool to help support your thyroid.”


Her book is a new great resource for hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s disease sufferers and I’d like you to get it here for yourself or a friend who has a thyroid disease.


Because you need it.

I wish that thyroid books and resources like this that you can get now were available back 17 years ago when I was diagnosed.

The Thyroid Reboot book could save you a lot of time and frustration, help to avoid common pitfalls and safely navigate through common misconceptions about thyroid diet, health and nutrition.

It can bring a much needed mind-shift that thyroid medication is not enough to become symptom-free and live well despite living with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s disease.

The Thyroid Reboot will arm you with actionable step-by-step approach that you can easily implement into your own life.
