TRACEY’S THYROID STORY
Tracey Fry from Additive Free Lifestyle shares her personal thyroid story.
When Tracey was 16 she was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid but later was diagnosed with Graves and had radio active iodine treatment. Fortunately not all of her thyroid was destroyed and she is now working with her integrative doctor to support her thyroid function.
Fortunately, about 6-7 years ago Tracey, along with her sister Jo started digging into information about food additives and preservatives and had already been living an additive free lifestyle.
Given we know how much chemicals impact our thyroid health, this got Tracey off to a flying start when it comes to managing her thyroid health holistically.
We cover topics like additive free living, toxic load, root causes, essential oils, lifestyle approach, finding a doctor, stress and anxiety.
I am always reminded that it takes courage to share your personal health story in a public forum, so on behalf of those people who listen, thank you Tracey for sharing yours.
Tracey’s key tips to her younger self
- Get in tune with your body – track, monitor. Trust your instincts.
- Question more things. Keep digging until you get answers. Knowledge is power.
