AKA Auto-immune thyroiditis

If you’ve found your way here I’m guessing that you’ve either recently received a Hashimoto’s diagnosis or you’ve been ill for a while and are frustrated by the fact that despite taking medication you’re not actually feeling any better. Or, you may have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and, like me your GP hasn’t even mentioned Hashimoto’s… (Hashimoto’s aka Auto-immune thyroiditis is caused by auto-immunity 90% of the time).

I was accidentally diagnosed when I took my son to see a Functional Medicine Doctor! We were discussing family history and when I mentioned that I had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism the year before, she mentioned that it was probably Hashimotos disease. My initial response was Hashi-what?

I took a private blood test (because getting an appointment at my GPs required more energy than I could muster at the time) and had the diagnosis confirmed. I implemented various simple lifestyle strategies, and took the same blood test again which showed that I had managed to put the auto-immune disease into remission.


If you’ve had enough of feeling sick and tired, I can show you the way out of this cycle which can appear in any of the following ways:

How can I help you to put that spring back into your step?

As an expert in behaviour change I can support you to take those baby steps which are required to overhaul your lifestyle.

Could you do this by yourself?

Of course you could! But it will be a longer, slower process than if you worked with a coach who’s already been through this and has come out the other side.
We’re going to start on the inside and work our way out using a structured process. Between 70 and 80% of your immune system can be found in your gut.

Key factors to consider are:

We’ll co-create micro habit changes for you, and experiment to see how you and your body react to these changes. It’s not going to be easy. You will have to put in the work, and I will support you to become the healthiest (and happiest) version of you.

I’m happy to work with your doctor or nutritionist/dietitian. Equally if you would like to work with a Functional Medicine doctor in the UK I can recommend one to you (I’m not paid any referral fees).
