Stress and Weight Loss Resistance

Today we are being bombarded by countless stressors, attacking us from seemingly every angle; political fears, financial worries and, of course, a pandemic that has overshadowed nearly every aspect of our lives.

More than ever, we are concerned about our health and well-being and that of our families. Although we are deluged by a world in chaos, it’s important to acknowledge and remember that our personal health and fitness is key. We must start with ourselves before we can even begin to help those close to us. Remember that flight attendant who told you to put on your own oxygen mask first?  They were right. 

Trays up. Please direct your attention to the front of the aircraft.

Thyroid Effects in Females

As my clients and podcast subscribers know, thyroid health is a major aspect of the work I do at Rock Bottom Wellness.

My own journey to reclaiming my health began, in many ways, with thyroid dysfunction, which progressed into thyroid cancer in 2007. But this diagnosis was not some ominous, terminal sentence; on the contrary, it led me to dig deeper into this condition and the field of health, nutrition and well-being. And this digging eventually got me to “rock bottom,” and a place from which I could begin to help others.

Before we can look into the ways in which we can support thyroid health, it’s important to understand the thyroid itself; its attributes and function in the body, especially as it pertains to women.

The thyroid is a small,“butterfly-shaped” gland at the front of the neck. It produces a hormone that regulates a variety of functions in the body but, most significantly, controls the speed of metabolism. These disorders either slow down,...

People who struggle with food, weight and dieting for most, if not all of their life, believe that they don’t have enough willpower, haven’t found the right plan or that something is inherently “wrong” with them that they can’t lose weight and keep it off. Every time they attempt to lose weight, they never address what got them to overweight in the first place. Their mindset and limiting beliefs need to be addressed. Lasting weight loss is 80% mindset and 20% food. When people have the tools and strategies they need to transform from the inside out, they can achieve weight loss that stays off for good.

Ep 029 My Experience with Hypothyroidism Medication

When you set out to help support your thyroid function, hypothyroidism medication is not a one size fits all process. You need to know your numbers - ALL your numbers -  to really get the best treatment possible. My story actually started way before I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I struggled with so many of the classic thyroid symptoms - fatigue, dry skin, constantly feeling sick, muscle fatigue, irregular periods, and depression. MAJOR depression...to the point where my doctor, a Psychiatrist, prescribed a low dose of Synthroid along with my antidepressants. I told him, “I don’t have a thyroid problem. My tests always come back “normal.” He informed me that many of his patients see an improvement of symptoms with this combination. He was right! But I didn’t have a thyroid problem. 

 

Jump ahead about 10 years. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and due to having a thyroidectomy, needed to begin thyroid medications pretty much...
