While I’ve used almost exclusively natural skincare products for the past few years since I began the pregnancy and nursing journey, I switched over to 100% clean products this year. Between learning more about the parabens and chemicals in regular products and finding out about my own autoimmune disease, the switch was a no brainer. A necessity. That being said, it wasn’t easy. I’ve amassed quite the skincare collection over the years and letting go of my ride or die products felt like a loss of much more than moisturizer and eye cream. It felt like losing a little bit of my freedom-of myself. I’m here to report it’s not as dramatic as it seems and I truly look forward to my skincare routine every morning and evening.
This is part 2 in my three part series on my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Disease. These posts are very lengthy and extremely in-depth, but since battling thyroid problems I personally have found these types of posts to be the most helpful. I pray it would spark hope in you and not fear, but as a warning I do discuss a little bit about my miscarriage. If that may trigger any fear or trauma in you, maybe put a pin in this and come back at another time. Grab your coffee, friends. Here we go.
Since discovering I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Disease in March, I’ve shared the ups and downs of my health journey and have received many questions along the way. I think the best way to share about my current standing with Hashimoto’s is to start from the beginning. Since I want to be thorough for those of you also walking through the same thing as me I’m breaking up the story into three parts-mostly to spare your eyeballs. Get ready for lots of reading, friends.
That title is a mouthful, isn’t it? We’ve been plant based for over a year now and gluten-free for longer, but after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease last spring our meals have had to be cleaner than ever.
