What You Say to Your Body Matters: How Thoughts Affect Health How Your Body Beliefs Dictate Your Health
In this episode I mention how I am off all medication and feel fantastic. A couple weeks after saying this I noticed some big changes in how I felt and discuss this in detail in Episode 27. The short version is that I did go back on medication but please listen to episode 27 for more information. Again- I do not ever recommend you go off your medication without the supervision of your doctor. I did this as an experiment to see what would happen since I see a lot of people talking about what would happen if they went off their meds. Results might be different for you but it is clear there is enough either damage to my thyroid or stress in my life that caused my TSH to go way up really quickly and really high which is a clear indication that things are not right. See you in Episode 27 to discuss this.
