After going over and over same things in my head since I got diagnosed I've come to the conclusion that my body has been battered over the last three years. In these three years I have had 3 pregnancies, 3 healthy full term babies and natural births. I am however no super mum and I do get stressed and I argue alot with my partner. I have gained 4 stone through first baby which has now shot up to 5 stone thanks to my lazy thyroid. My body must be so stressed its no wonder my thyroid is now underactive. However the herbalist I spoke to thinks its not forever because its only just come on within weeks of giving birth and she thinks that with natural medication alongside the levothyroxine that I could eventually be medication free. I'm willing to give it a go! She also mentioned something about adrenal function? Anybody tried a herbalist?
