I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis months after the birth of my second child and was told that I needed a biopsy in two weeks and would need to go on a very restrictive diet and start thyroid medication. During the two weeks I waited for the biopsy, I started treating my thyroid topically with essential oils, and by the time I went in for the appointment they scanned me again and indicated a biopsy was no longer needed.
For a year after that point, I tried going gluten free, then gluten and dairy free, and finally grain and dairy free but my antibody count just continued to rise. I discovered CBD about two years ago now, and tried isolates vs full spectrum, and both have proven effective at lowering my antibody count and keeping my thyroid production within normal ranges.
I have not been on any dietary restrictions for about a year now, and my thyroid production is still within range, and my antibody count is the lowest it has been since diagnosis. While I still HAVE Hashimoto’s as my antibody count is currently around 90 (normal is >9), it is fully under control and I can live a normal life without dietary restrictions or medications.
