A little less than a year ago, I discussed my thyroid problems over at Keeper of the Home. At the time, I was still taking medication–but I was experiencing some odd symptoms, like heart palpitations and anxiety.
A few weeks later I discovered that the doctor had prescribed me the wrong medicine!
I went off of the medicine and felt better.
However, I still suspect I may have some thyroid and/or adrenal issues. I am posting a little less this summer while I bring attention to some old content and welcome some guest posters. This will allow me to get the much-needed rest my body needs for healing!
Today, I wanted to share with you an excerpt to my post “Why are So Many Woman Experiencing Thyroid Problems”:
Up until a couple years ago, I had never heard of thyroid problems. I don’t even think I knew where the thyroid was located in our bodies. Perhaps I didn’t even know this little organ existed!
But over the course of the past two years, I’ve discovered what a powerful organ the thyroid is! It regulates hormones throughout the body. These hormones affect metabolism, growth, development and body temperature!
But, sadly, I’ve also found out that an alarming number of women–young women–are experiencing thyroid problems today.
And so I’ve begged the question:
Why are so many women suffering with thyroid problems?
