Here is the whole IG post with the details of her disease.
Raw. – So I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, along with other millions of young and older women who suffer from it. – – What is Hashimotos? -it is an autoimmune disorder that can cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. It means that my immune system makes antibodies that attack the thyroid gland. The thyroid becomes damaged and can’t make enough thyroid hormones. – – I’ve also developed goiter (enlarged thyroid). We all know that Thyroid hormones control how our body uses energy, so they affect nearly every organ in your body. – – I am lucky that I am not prescribed with any medications yet.. And TBH, I would rather heal myself in a holistic way. I have been doing my research on AIP diet and paleo diet, so I will most likely start with it after our vacation. I started cutting sugar & gluten into my diet and it is amazing that I am not really craving sweets lately. – – I know healing my gut is just the first step, but dealing with daily stress and emotional flare ups is also another thing. I really am on a huge “transition phase” of my life this year. So here’s to healing naturally and being healthy from the inside out! #hashimotos #reversingdisease #healthyfromtheinsideout🌱
