As I explained in a past post, I have struggled with keeping my thyroid hormone levels in check. It’s been a problem for quite some time. I would have days, and even whole weeks at a time where it was all I could do to drag myself out of bed in the morning and not crawl back in any chance I got.
I craved sugar and carbs like crazy, and kept enough stubborn weight around my middle that I was constantly being asked “When are you due?” (That’s horribly embarrassing, by the way.) My hair was constantly falling out, and my mood was all over the place. I was cold all the time, until I was enough overweight that then I was hot all the time. Despite exercising and eating well, my weight continued to creep up.
I’m sure some of you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.
I went to my doctor, who was willing to help me address the issues in the most natural way she was familiar with, and I’m grateful for that. I was put on NP Thyroid medication, and it did an ok job. I wasn’t quite as exhausted, my moods weren’t quite as volatile. All my doctor could suggest was upping the dosage, which didn’t sit right with me. I wanted to solve the problem, not mask it.
So, as I always do, I started researching.
I was already familiar with herbs, and homeopathics, and essential oils, and I came across a blend for thyroid support that I thought I’d give a try. I posted it back in this post here. As I learned more about the oils, and their amazing properties, I knew I needed to add Frankincense and Myrrh to the blend. So I did. I used the blend religiously, even keeping a little roller bottle in my pocket so I could apply it during the day.
I started noticing improvements. Getting up in the morning was getting easier. I wasn’t falling asleep at 2:30 in the afternoon while sitting up doing something. My hair wasn’t falling out. I started to believe that I could naturally support my health and not take a prescription for the rest of my life.
I was excited about this progress, and started looking at what else I could do to continue to give my thyroid what it needed.
It was about this time that I learned about and first purchased my Lifelong Vitality vitamins. I am not kidding when I say that these vitamins changed my life. These, along with doTERRA’s Mito2Max supplement, gave my body exactly what it needed. Simple as that. I still can’t believe it. A roller bottle and some phenomenal vitamins changed my life.
I have had a healthy thyroid for over a year now. I wake up in the morning when I want to. I am awake and alert and full of energy throughout the day. I can exercise without exhaustive muscle fatigue. I don’t crave sugar, or carbs. With the help of Slim and Sassy and TrimShake, and exercise, I have reduced my weight by over 30 pounds–that wouldn’t budge before no matter how hard I tried. My hair is thick and full again, and my body temperature is good. I have so much more patience for my children, and feel much more happy and vibrant.
No one has asked me if I’m expecting in almost a year.
My body is healing and my life has improved drastically. On the days when I forget my vitamins or for whatever reason can’t take them–I don’t crash. I don’t regress. I notice I don’t have quite as much energy, but it’s like a misplaced yawn or two, not a wall of crushing exhaustion.
I still have my little roller bottle, but really only use it when I’m feeling really stressed out. It seems to calm my system and give me a boost against all that cortisol.
If you are suffering like I was, PLEASE, give essential oils and LifeLong Vitality a try. I can’t even express to you what it’s worth to feel alive again–but I know I don’t have to. You know how you feel, and what it would mean to you to feel amazing. You can’t afford NOT to do this.
Here’s what you need to get started:
Mix equal parts of each oil in a roller bottle (I did 10 drops of each), and then top the bottle off with the Fractionated coconut oil. Mine was a small roller, maybe 2″ tall. If you use a larger roller, I would suggest using more drops of each oil. Use the roller several times a day, right over your thyroid area (that little hollow in your neck, just between your collarbones).
Then, take 2 capsules of each of the following, twice a day.
Before you purchase your oils retail though, be sure to learn more about your options for getting great discounts and free products. Since you’ll be taking the vitamins daily, you’ll be a great candidate for the Loyalty Rewards Program–which will earn you up to 30% back in free product credit.
Feel free to email me with your name and any questions you have. I’d love to help you start supporting your own health naturally.
In (so much better) health!
Oils for the Win!
PS Please be aware: I had these awesome results using only doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils. I do not suggest and strongly advise against using other brands. For more information on why, click here.
