Tired of being called tired, lazy, irresponsible? Want to laugh again, join in on life again and stop spending the day in bed wishing that you could do things like you used to? Want to spend less time avoiding things that cause only you to have fatigue or pain while others shake their heads and walk away? 

Is there a magic answer? Nope. But we have answers to a lot of your questions. Knowing what is going on and why is the first step in learning how you can be YOU again.

Symptoms of hypothyroid: Extreme fatigue, depression, long sleep cycles, hair loss, weight gain, brittle nails, dry skin, bowel problems, irregular periods, mood swings, cold hands/feet, short term memory loss (aka ‘brain fart’), goiter, big tongue and more.

Symptoms of hyperthyroid: Depression, heat intolerance, insomnia, increased appetite, rapid weight loss, no periods, muscle pain or twitching and more.

You’re NOT going crazy. Your symptoms are real. Now it’s time to find out what they mean and what to do to feel like a human being again and not a zombie.

Stop by and meet some folks that have experienced many of the things that you are. Hypothyroid or hyperthyroid. Hashimotos thyroiditis or thyroid cancer. Fibromyalgia, goiter or difficult pregnancy. Once you have a basic knowledge you’re on your way to finding solutions. Stop being a victim to Thyroid Disease and bring yourself back!

Join us and share your experiences and feel welcome. Learn what your lab results mean, the correct tests to order, the best way to take your meds and your vitamins. Which supplements will help your body and which don’t. Learn about Synthroid, Armour, Cytomel, and others. Ask about procedures like thyroidectomy and RAI (Radioactive Iodine). We are great listeners and we’re here to help you avoid some of the misery that we’ve gone through.

Pull up a chair and visit with us for a while, you are not alone. Together, we can face anything!

Overcoming TD Metabolism

After years of being hypothyroid and totally frustrated with my weight, I, like nearly everyone else with thyroid disorders, blamed it on being hypo. I understood my metabolic rate was less because of hypothyroidism and that was the reason I gained.

But I've changed my mind. I'm feeling so empowered right now. It's like having a new lease on life.

I watched the special September 12th with Dr. Phil and Katie. Oh my! What they said just hit me right between the eyes. The simplicity, the logic.

He challenged America to change their point of view about food. To stop looking at it as we do now and to start looking at it for what it truly is: Fuel for our bodies.

I'd like to expand on that concept. Hold it up to the light and understand it completely, to relate it to a hypo metabolism.

I suddenly see the answer to why it is so difficult to lose weight when we become hypothyroid: We continue to eat food as we have all of our lives. But we can't do that anymore. We have to eat food as fuel, eating the amount that our bodies need to function and thrive - then stop. If we can click that switch in our brains to understand that eating more causes us to gain weight, or fail to lose weight - we will have won the first battle in regaining a healthy weight and participating in life rather than sit on the side lines watching everyone else live.

We would like to invite you to open your mind, to set aside all you have learned about diets, calories, scales and points. Join us, Feisty Wendy and Topper (aka ThyroGeek), as we explore the concept of feeding our bodies to health based on the knowledge that our metabolic rates are now less than they were before thyroid disorder hit us.

Let’s support each other as we learn how to determine our fuel requirements, how frugally our engines run, the correct amount of food to keep us running smoothly and allow our bodies to naturally adjust to the weight that is healthy for us.

Ready to give it a shot? We can't wait to get started.
