If there is an ever-growing problem that I hear about with women when it comes to their health….it is thyroid problems.

The Healing Hashimoto’s Summit is an incredible resource to learn and understand more about the condition, but better yet, what you can do to help live a better, healthier and happier life if you are diagnosed with this auto immune condition.

Before we talk about a review of the full Healing Hashimoto’s Summit, let’s define exactly what Hashimoto’s Disease really is with a definition from The Mayo Clinic website:

Hashimoto’s disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam’s apple. The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body’s functions.

Inflammation from Hashimoto’s disease, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, often leads to an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Hashimoto’s disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It primarily affects middle-aged women but also can occur in men and women of any age and in children.

Doctors test your thyroid function to help detect Hashimoto’s disease. Treatment of Hashimoto’s disease with thyroid hormone replacement usually is simple and effective.Hashimoto’s disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam’s apple.

The stats are telling us that 90% of all hypothyroid conditions are due to Hashimoto’s, and tens of millions of people world wide are struggling from this disorder–it’s STILL one of the most common yet uncommonly diagnosed diseases in the world!

Your thyroid is important to every aspect of your health. Slight imbalances can cause problems all over your body (and you may not even know they’re happening!).

That’s why it’s so important to catch a thyroid disorder as early as possible.

Symptoms range from hair loss, weight gain, depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, cold hands and feet, excessive perspiration, dryness, irritability, brain fog, skin issues, hives, digestive distress, malnutrition, heart palpitations, hormone imbalance, decreased libido, sluggishness.

The list goes on and on.

The Healing Hashimoto’s Summit 2017 is here to:

+ Raise awareness about this chronic disease
+ Help with early detection, testing and diagnosis
+ Discuss the importance of physical, mental and emotional healing
+ Advice for navigating the ups and downs
+ Share success stories (it IS possible and you’re not alone!)
+ And so much more!

Before we get into sharing our notes and then watching the review video, I want to share our best tips on overcoming thyroid issues and ultimately Hashimoto’s Disease. We have spent a lot of time learning from dozens of leading doctors and experts in health, but one of them who stands out when it comes to Hashimoto’s Disease and any other related Thyroid conditions is none other than Mr Don Tolman. Don Tolman has been helping people overcome disease for decades using the principles of nature.

He has even helped some people completely regrow their thyroid (after it was surgically removed). Crazy, right?!

I always like to believe that if someone else can do, I can too. And so can you. So here are some tips we learned from Don Tolman and have shared with our community with great success. From Don Tolman’s website:

Your thyroid depends on Iodine to function at it’s optimum capacity.

And your Doctor probably won’t tell you (and maybe has no idea) that Mushrooms contain the highest naturally occurring incidence of plant or phytolitic iodine of any food that has ever been studied – even more than sea kelp!

So eat Mushrooms regularly and you’ll be supporting the optimum function of your thyroid.

And if you’re already taking Thyroxine or any kind of thyroid drug, perhaps it’s time that you cut back on the dosage and introduce 1 cup of Mushrooms into your diet every single day – throw them in salads raw, sautee them in olive oil or add them to soups and stews!

Other amazing foods for the thyroid include Pumpkin Seeds, Sesame Seeds and Almonds because they are a great source of tyrosine, an amino acid that your body uses to manufacture thyroid hormone. – https://www.dontolmaninternational.com/blogs/blog/how-to-heal-your-thyroid

Now, our notes from the first two summit interviews that were available when we purchased the Healing Hashimoto’s Summit.

Mitch’s Notes from the Healing Hashimoto’s Disease Summit:

Talk Title: Managing Attitude, Expectations and Family Support
Featured Speaker: Dr Datis Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MS, FACN, CNS

3 key points of the talk:

  1. Why gluten free matters
  2. Impact of stress and unsupportive family members
  3. The positive influence of support from loved ones

Main Takeaways: 

  • Most people are just told they have a thyroid problem, and never diagnosed with Hashimoto’s so they don’t know what actions they need to take.
  • Theres a major disconnect between the disease process and what the patients are told from physicians
    • If not diagnosed correctly and the right actions are taken then it can lead to celiac disease, gut issues and other auto immune conditions because the immune system gets attacked
  • People with Hashimoto’s Disease are scared to share their symptoms because other people think they are crazy
  • Science is showing that having a dispute with your spouse raises something called interleukin-6 and can trigger an auto-immune response for up to 3 days, so relationships are a huge aspect to overcoming the disease.
  • In general medicine there is no cure for hashimoto’s disease, you need to learn how to live with it in remission. Which means lifestyle factors have a huge impact in whether you have a flare-up or whether your inflammatory system is calm
    • Lifestyle factors is the only way it gets managed
      • Sleep, diet, relationships, mindset
  • If you come in and play victim and have a victim mentality you cannot get better
  • Its an immune attack against the thyroid gland and has inflammation in the body attacking other areas like joints, brain, organs.

Sam’s Notes from the Healing Hashimoto’s Disease Summit:

Talk Title: Loving Yourself First
Featured Speaker: Andrea Nakayama, FNLP, MSN, CNC, CNE, CHHC

3 key points of the talk:

  1. How loss can trigger Hashimoto’s
  2. Navigating and owning lifestyle changes when single
  3. Having healthy, playful relationships when dating

Andrea went through the passing of her husband who died of cancer, just shortly after having their first child. For several years she was dealing with a lot of stress, hormonal stress from being pregnant, to then dealing with the loss of her husband, whilst raising her child by herself. With all the stress she was dealing with several years later she discovered she had Hashimoto’s Disease.

Key Takeaways: 

  • She describes it as a life long journey.
  • There may be support around, but you need to learn to be your own “hero” essentially.
  • She asked herself – what do I want from me to be my best self. (look in the mirror)
  • Mindset is key – her husband really helped her realise this as she had to watch him lose his life at 34, she saw things in such a blessing and didn’t take on the “victim” mode.
  • Learning here is to take responsibility.
  • “Opt in” mindset  – a lot of the time with this disease you can feel like the “other” and instead of finding yourself in scenarios that put you in a really dark place she chooses this “Opt in” reframe eg. Out with friends who are all drinking wine and she can only drink water, so she goes all in 110% puts the lime in her water, is in the conversation, is involved and with that attitude, no one questions it. (self judgement)
  • Find the similar ground with people
  • Take care of you – it’s not about insulting anyone, but you have to be your own advocate – (eg, When others are cooking for you, but you have a strict diet)
  • Part of the “responsibility”, people aren’t psychic, they don’t know your needs. So take responsibility, whether that’s communicating with people, or bringing your own dish etc.
  • In relationships it’s all about communication and understanding your own boundaries and then having flexibility with being able to navigate. What is the risk/reward of togetherness.
  • Dealing with Hashimoto’s Disease isn’t just one thing physically or one thing emotionally and in fact its not something you wear on your sleeve its hidden, it’s also a lot of things and different for everyone as we are all living different lives, so it’s so important to work together, have people that can support you and educating the ones closest to you and remember that you have your voice.
