A bit about me. Aged 59, female, trying to run my business from home, live alone, no family around so find it hard to cope emotionally when unwell - it also doesnt help when you are unwell and spending too much time alone and feeling too ill to go out.
Had no real health problems until a few years ago kept getting nose and ear infections. Doctor kept just giving me antibiotics and steroids and it would clear up but then return soon after. I studied and researched and said I thought it was because of an underactive thyroid. He didnt agree. I insisted on a blood test that proved me right. Been on thyroid medication for just over a year. Get good phases and bad phases. Struggling emotionally with it. To help myself I researched what I could do to help myself diet wise. I also wanted to try to avoid dementia as my grandmother and mother got it - though I think that was due to their lifestyle.
Am now making my own distilled water, eating different, far more fibre, less processed and refined, more vegetables. Never smoke or drink and never did. Would be good to discuss it with others who take responsibility for their health.
