The Highs and Lows of Thyroid Health: A Roller Coaster Ride for Many Women

Clinical Master, Nichole Hirsch Kuechle, will offer a Highs and Lows of Thyroid Health workshop, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., on March 11, at the My Healthy Beginning Long Lake Natural Health Center. Working primarily with women for the past seven years, Kuechle observed approximately 40 percent of her practice was due to thyroid health. It is shocking to hear that children as young as six years of age are struggling with thyroid dysfunction. Thyroid issues aren’t just a concern for middle-aged women any more.

Living in a perpetual state of toxicity is taking a toll on human bodies. This is happening due to the increasing nutritional deficiencies in foods, the negativity heard in conversation and the media, the horror and violence portrayed on the big screen, and in what people are using for personal and body care products.

These days, life happens mostly indoors where air is most toxic. Many people eat well except for weekends, holidays, social situations, family outings and staff meetings, leaving them feeling less than fulfilled and mostly bloated, irritable and restless.

This pace, this life, this food, these choices, add up. Picture a car in “park” with the pedal to the metal, burning rubber. That’s the thyroid. It’s burning out. It’s unhappy and it’s blaming its misfortune on other glands and organs, just hiding out hoping never to be found, for the game it’s playing is all too fun.

Join Kuechle and discover that there’s hope in putting an end to this current state of ill health.
