Many of you may know that I had my thyroid removed several years ago and ongoing radiation therapy to repel any additional residual thyroid cancer that can represent itself in the throat area or other parts of the body.
Many people think once it is removed everything goes back to normal.. and for some it does. But for the majority, we still struggle with the day to day ups and downs of Hashimoto's or other auto immune diseases.
So today I wanted to take time to share some suggestions that I found via the internet to help with those ups & downs with Essential oils.
Essential oils of lemon, citrus, peppermint or eucalyptus also promote energy, boost your mood and reduce fatigue. Add three to five drops of the chosen oil to your diffuser, one to three times a day.
Using ginger, cinnamon, orange or grapefruit oils and add three to five drops to your bath once a day. These scents help battle low mood, tiredness and stress associated with low thyroid.
If you suspect that you may be dealing with a thyroid issue... please see your Doctor and request that they do a complete thyroid panel and a throat ultrasound first as a base line before starting on any medications.
Had the Doctor waited until the results were in from both of these tests before starting me on medication, I would not have had to wait an additional 6-9 weeks to be off the medication and start a low iodine diet before perusing additional needed tests which led to the surgery.
