This post has been coming for a long time.
We talked about it in detail in the podcast, but I also wanted to write a blog post on this topic.
It’s a topic many of you have asked about. Hormones, hypothyroidism and insulin resistance.
Yes, you did a whole job A single podcast episode You should definitely listen but I also wanted to summarize all the points here.
Needless to say, I am not a doctor. I am just sharing my experience with hormones and what I discovered after giving birth. So obviously, consult a doctor, do your own research.
In fact, I engaged a hormone specialist, and that was very helpful. So be your teacher and stand up for yourself.
One of the best things I’ve ever done is test my hormones
Hormones: Secret Conversations
I had it like this Easy Magic Carry And a crazy birth, it couldn’t be better. So I thought my recovery would be easy. Shakir: It was not like that.
♡ Right after the baby came, I felt like I was wearing a costume. I go to experience the full body image, but I also got tired and anxious (like the sound of a doorbell sent me over the edge), and just really, really silly. It turned out to be more than just a slight postpartum anxiety.
♡ My neck was swollen This is the reason why I’m checking hormones. Someone on Pilates pointed this out to me and I just got rid of it. This woman kept bothering me to go check my level (thank God) and so I finally did. This is when my life changed and I felt very relieved to find that my thyroid, progesterone and estrogen are low.
For a two-fold approach, I also started seeing a Chinese medicine doctor. This has provided my toolbox with all the tools I need to balance my hormones and get back to being a happy, clear-minded person with energy. In fact, I go to the nutritional supplements that this doctor and my hormonal specialist gave me.
♡ Keep checking them out Because a lot of things can affect your hormones. You want to return every two to three months. It is not a single thing and writing. Even the environment also affects our hormones.
Make sure to listen to the podcast as I dig deeper into all the points above.
The point is, after checking my hormones, I went from crying and feeling anxious every day while also looking like saliva with a rat nest on its head to feeling 100%.
Sure, many women describe a kind of “fog” that you have after having a baby, but it’s not always normal. To talk about this now with some clarity makes me realize I’m not well.
So if you’re there, reading or listening, and you’re feeling depressed, anxious, tired, and atrial fibrillation and not just yourself, I want you to know that it’s normal that you don’t feel normal – but you can totally get help. It will also change your life, I promise.
