I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease (an autoimmune issue affecting the thyroid and hormone system). In addition to hair loss and breakage, I’ve been experiencing night sweats, fatigue, low libido, brain fog, loss of appetite, and anxiety. Couple that with this little global pandemic we have going on and my stress has been through the roof. It’s been a great time!
I have begun working with an amazing functional medicine practioner to heal the hormone imbalance and work to reverse the Hashimoto’s in the most natural way possible. I will continue to write and share about my journey, in the hopes that it helps someone out there who is struggling with the same thing.
In the meantime, here are some of the natural solutions for hair loss that have been working for me.
Did you know the average woman applies over 500 chemicals to her body every single day? Or the fact that the current legislation in the US regulating the cosmetic industry only bans 8 ingredients from use in beauty products when that same number for the EU is more than 1,300? This is is not ok, my friends.
Swapping out your beauty products is an easy and inexpensive way to start ditching the chemicals in your home and loving on your endocrine system. A great way to make the shift toward more natural products is to start finding DIY recipes to replace what you’re already purchasing. You’ll find most products can be made with ingredients you already have lying around in your pantry.
I am a former elementary school teacher, turned holistic lifestyle coach and I am so glad you're here. After being diagnosed with (and healing myself from) a rare chronic illness, I now teach people how to tap into their intuition in order to make the changes they wish to see in their health, naturally. I'm on a mission to change the way we think about self-care, so we can all show up in the world as our best and brightest selves. I can't wait to connect with you!
