Your most under appreciated organ that probably needs a little TLC

Challenges with healthy thyroid hormone go frequently unrecognized by most practitioners. As a patient this can be extremely frustrating. You might find yourself (literally) losing your hair stressing out over “what is wrong with me?!”


Even if your doctor correctly identifies a thyroid imbalance, the “solution” is simply to write a prescription for hormone replacement therapy. Thyroid medication can certainly be helpful, however without working on the cause of the imbalance, most thyroid patients find themselves perpetually scrambling to find the right dose as life takes its turns of ups and downs every few months.


The thyroid gland governs so many of our body’s functions. From energy, to digestion, fat metabolism, heart rate, temperature, sleep, the thyroid hormone acts like the body’s thermostat, telling us to “turn up” or “turn down'“ various bodily functions throughout the day.

Why Thyroid is Often Missed by Most Doctors

The thyroid gland produces thyroid hormone in two forms: T4 and T3. T4 is considered the “inactive” form and must be converted by the body into the active form, T3.

The thyroid gland itself produces about 90% of thyroid hormone in its inactive state, T4. Only about 10% is in the active, ready-to-go active state (T3).

When conventional doctors look thyroid hormone, they typically only look at TSH, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, not T4 or T3. Additionally, we already said the thyroid gland itself only creates about 10% in the active form. This means that over 90% of the hormone produced by the thyroid, has to get converted to its active by OTHER organs!

Organs like the liver, gut and kidneys do this heavy lifting. Conventional blood work doesn’t “look under the hood” and lab value indicators that would make it possible to identify where the “glitch” in the whole thyroid hormone cascade lies

What Causes Thyroid Imbalance

Different people will develop thyroid imbalance for different reasons. There are 7 root cause factors that can trigger thyroid imbalance. Some people have multiple factors at play within their bodies, others only one or two.

You can take my Thyroid Type Quiz to find out which factors are most relevant for you and your unique thyroid symptoms.

-Nutritional deficiency (iodine, selenium, zinc, iron, magnesium)
-Autoimmune challenge
-Liver overwhelm (excess burden of chemical and/or heavy metal toxins)
-Estrogen excess
-Gut imbalance
-Stress overwhelm
-Blood Sugar imbalance

How to Care for Your Thyroid Naturally

Most doctors will prescribe thyroid hormone replacement therapy called levothyroxine to “treat” hypothyroidism. There are also some really great ways to support a healthy thyroid naturally and in many cases, with these changes and targeted support, many find themselves able to work with their prescribing doctor in lessening or coming off of their prescription medication over time.

  1. Eat thyroid nourishing foods.

    Foods rich in Selenium, Iron, Iodoine and Magnesium and be incredibly helpful in supporting healthy thyroid levels. You can get a free download of my Thyroid Nourishing Foods list by taking the Thyroid Type Quiz. You will get your results and gain access to this free tool and a free chapter of my Thyroid Essentials Book.

  2. Avoid Gluten

    Gluten can be extremely inflammatory for most individuals, which will often exacerbate thyroid symptoms. Additionally, most who struggle with thyroid imbalance have been found to have subclinical autoimmune thyroid at the root cause of the imbalance. Gluten has been found to be “mimicking” of thyroid tissue for the autoimmune activated immune system. This means that when gluten is consumed, the autoimmune activity can be triggered and further destruction of thyroid tissue can take place.

    It’s a good idea to avoid gluten all together when working on naturally supporting thyroid health. Again, there are a lot of thyroid nourishing foods shared in my free chapter download and on my Thyroid Nourishing Foods List that you get access to when you take the Thyroid Type Quiz.

  3. Reduce Stress

    Stress is one of the root cause factors of thyroid imbalance listed above. However stress itself can worsen all the other 6 root cause factors too. For this reason, it’s a good idea to find ways to better manage stress in your day to day life.

    Some simple stress reduction tools like a 30 minute walk daily or huffing Lavender essential oil during your day have both been proven to reduce circulating stress hormones, thereby making it easier for your body to create and respond to healthy thyroid hormone levels.

  4. Get Supplement + Essential Oil Support

    In my book Thyroid Essentials, you can get access to specific natural protocols for all the different root cause factors. If you want to get started right away with some foundational thyroid support, these are my “go-to” recommendations:

    -Life Long Vitality Pack: a vitamin pack that helps lay the nutritional foundation for thyroid wellness

    -Drink Wild Orange Essential Oil or Grapefruit Essential oil infused water tonics. These two essential oils support healthy detoxification, promote better digestion and a more balanced pH in the gut. These elements of wellness greatly impact thyroid hormone levels and overall hormone harmony.

    -Essential oils can be used to help lower inflammation in and around the thyroid, support healthy immune activity around the gland, give cellular support for the thyroid tissue itself, promote healthy detoxification and drainage of toxins in the thyroid gland and also support healthy hormone regulation. I have a blend I created to support all these elements of thyroid wellness, making daily ritualistic care super simple!
