Healing Hashimoto’s and Taking Responsibility for Your Health

One of my favorite things about the work I have done all of these years with Tasty Yummies are all the amazing connections I have made, not just in the community we have all created together, but among my peers and other content creators, writers and bloggers. I have met an incredible amount of people who continuously inspire me, who challenge me to not only investigate and examine the work that I am doing, but also in my own life and health.
One of my favorite things about this podcast is the opportunity to bring all of these incredible people to you, too! To share their personal stories and to hopefully inspire you in all the ways they continue to inspire me!

Today’s guest Carly Johnson Brawner, has become a good friend of mine through the virtual space. I think we first connected on Instagram and we finally had the opportunity to meet in person a couple years back when I was in Austin for a conference
In today’s episode, Carly shares her story of discovering she had Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune thyroid disease. She shares the symptoms that became most concerning to her, the major things she did to heal her body, how she demanded testing and when she knew it was time to break up with her doctor and look for additional support. We talk through some of the dietary shifts and lifestyle changes that were most impactful to her, plus how she’s recently gotten the courage to face her fears as she has incorporated weight lifting into her movement plan and so much more.
I know you will walk away from today’s episode with some practical tips and inspiration for becoming your own health advocate, for knowing when to trust your intuition,  to take responsibility for your health and some of the first steps you can take to heal your body.
