Lyn’s hashimoto’s thyroid story
I’d love to introduce you to Lyn as she share’s her thyroid story to help spread awareness of thyroid health issues during Thyroid Awareness Month.
Lyn was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s at 50 after increasingly debilitating symptoms during perimenopause which ultimately saw her in hospital for 5 days being told her problems were all in her head. They weren’t. She had Hashimoto’s.
As a self-confessed high-achiever, Lyn put her self motivation to work and started reading everything she could get her hands on and taking her health in her own hands. This started with taking 6 months off her high powered corporate job and before returning to work part time for another 6 months.
The first 18 months for Lyn were the hardest as she gradually started to implement changes she was learning about in her research and working with her thyroid support team (function medicine practitioner and naturopath).
12 years on and Lyn has experienced a dramatic shift in how she feels. She is healthy, vibrant and a testament to what living a thyroid-friendly lifestyle can do for you! Thank you Lyn for sharing your story with us.
