Meet our ThyroSister, Jenny!

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s years ago, and always felt like I was just managing my symptoms.  Earlier this year I turned 50, had several stressful events, and felt extreme fatigue, brain fog, had a rash that would come and go, and my weight was up.  We discovered I had a parasite ( Blastocyst), and in four months of changing my diet, some targeted supplements, I’ve lost 20 lbs, I’m sleeping better, the rash is gone, and my energy is up.

Meet our ThyroSister, Katy!

My periods are regular again, my energy is up, I’m not quick to judge, and I’ve lost the stubborn weight.

Here’s an update from our ThyroSister, Pam!

I lost 20 lbs. without realizing it.  I kept my focus on my health rather than the number on the scale.  I have this new pattern of living, focusing on what I want.  Not what I don’t want. I even lost 4 lbs. from Thanksgiving to Christmas!  This is amazing, because I’m a cookie girl, I love to bake, I’m known for my cooking.  I learned the secret to weight loss is getting the inflammation down.  Not counting calories or living in the gym.  I still bake, exercise, enjoy my life even more because I know I have control over my weight, because I control the inflammation.  You can do it too!

I chose to heal. I chose to get better. I chose to be happy.”

Meet our ThyroSister, Nicole!

ThyroSisters Client TestimonialDr. Labbe has been absolutely incredible to work with.  I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s a few years ago and while I was provided with helpful information from previous doctors about how to improve my symptoms, it seemed overwhelming.

When I suddenly gained almost ten pounds a year and a half ago, and couldn’t lose even an ounce no matter what I did, my vanity motivated me to find someone who could truly help me.  I am petite though and ten pounds doesn’t sound like much so that symptom often gets pushed away, but I also knew that was a sign that something was just not working right in my body.  I was also feeling very tired.  I am a mom of two little boys who are 20 months apart – throw in a pandemic and my fatigue was written off as a symptom of “mom life”.  I didn’t want to write my symptoms off because I knew that I could be thriving, but I didn’t know where to begin.

I really needed help with a step-by-step plan of action, and I wanted to work with someone who knew exactly what I was going through – after some research I found Dr. Labbe and she has been SUCH a gift.

From our very first phone conversation I felt like she truly cared – she spent so much time going over my history and my symptoms, empathizing with me, and coming up with a game plan.  She didn’t dismiss any of my concerns as frivolous – she took everything I said seriously.  The testing was tailored to me specifically, and when we spoke again she broke down every single result into a way that I could understand.  The hopelessness I had previously felt was replaced with empowerment.

I followed her suggestions regarding what to eat and took the supplements she recommended and in just a few weeks I feel so much better.  6 pounds melted off and countless other symptoms improved – I have more energy, a happier outlook, am fitting into my clothes again, and look forward to every call with Dr. Labbe.  She is so supportive and has shown me that I can achieve all the goals I have regarding my health.  She doesn’t offer a one-size-fits-all approach and instead listens to you and what you need and tailors her recommendations accordingly.  I am so grateful for Dr. Labbe, excited to continue working with her, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an approach that actually works.  Thank you Dr. Labbe!

Hashimoto’s occurs when your own immune system attacks your thyroid or other organs and glands. Since your thyroid is in charge of releasing and managing important hormones in your body, these damaging attacks can cause your body to go haywire.

Listen to how Functional Medicine can help your Hashimoto’s! If you or someone you love suffers from thyroid imbalance, contact us at 858.284.9501 or support@thyrosisters.com.

See How Functional Medicine Changed This Patient’s Life!

At 47 years old, in late April of 2012, I began losing my hair in oval patches. These pictures were taken in late September of 2012. I did the normal thing and went to my HMO doctor knowing something was not right! I had all kinds of blood tests, sonograms, and allergist appointments only to be told by my primary care doctor, “All of your tests have come back in normal ranges. Western Medicine has nothing more to offer you… You might try acupuncture.”

That was when I decided to take a different fork in the road along my healing journey. I found my acupuncturist and my first Functional Medicine doctor who worked together as a team to handle difficult cases. I became an integral part of this team. We worked together, to figure out why my hair was continuing to fall out.

We ran more comprehensive blood tests which showed that I had problems with my detoxifying systems and that I had Leaky Gut syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and 14 other tissues under attack in my body. They put me on some cleanses and gave me natural supplements to support my body. Three months later my hair stopped falling out and then I noticed the first fuzz coming in on my head!

Armed with all of this new information, the Functional Medicine clinics were able to teach me how to live a normal, happy life. I learned to modify my diet to avoid the foods my body has developed antibodies against and how to live big on all the other foods my body thrives on.

Through the help of my Functional Medicine Doctors, deciding to take control of my own health, (instead of relying on standard protocols of HMO doctors), I have regained my hair, lost 35 pounds and am able to keep a steady weight without trying! I am careful about avoiding the foods my body doesn’t like and I prioritize getting enough sleep, but I have no pain, I have my energy back, and I feel better than I did when I was 40!

I believe that sharing my story can give you hope, that you too can regain your heath, through making a real commitment to turn your health around and by working with a Functional Medicine Practitioner, who will guide you through the natural alternatives that work.

It is my sincerest wish that you will try a different fork on the road in your Healing journey.
