Lori From New Hampshire Writes: I finished the Digestive Reset Program last month and have to say I am so glad I did it! It was tough for the first few days, but I quickly started feeling so good that it motivated me to keep going. Almost immediately I felt a difference in my digestion and just overall well-being. And I ended up losing 11 pounds, with no additional effort other than simply eating off the ‘allowed food list’. I had done a similar program several years ago and it was a very painful few weeks because it was so restrictive. This program was very flexible, almost ensuring the likelihood of success. Karen was such a huge help throughout the process and answered so many (countless!) questions for me. I am very grateful I found this site and for the first time in several years feel like I have some hope for recovery from hypothyroidism.
Naile From Texas Writes: Do you know what it means to me to say I've been busy? It means I wasn't tired, lazy or just didn't have the energy to post. It means I am finally feeling better and too busy to post!!! Thanks to the help from many people in the Healing Solutions For Thyroid group, I've taken my life back! Reading your posts and questions has helped me come to terms with my own problems. You all helped me face this disease and stand up to it and I thank you all!
I felt like a zombie for more than two years. I was always tired, achy and depressed. I had brain fog and my memory was terrible. I was barely able to function. If I made my bed that meant it was a good day even if I did nothing else that day. I gained 40 pounds in those two years, so much for losing weight with hyperthyroidism. There were many many more problems but I won't list them all. I was finally diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and was given Methimazole. The medication made everything worse so I stopped taking them.
That is when I turned to the internet, facebook and then this group. I kept reading articles about the Iodine Protocol here in the group so I bought a few books and borrowed some from the library and I did my research. I started the Iodine Protocol and in a few weeks I noticed a difference so I continued with it. Within a few months I noticed a big difference in my overall well being. I had more energy and my aches were slowly diminishing, my brain fog was almost completely gone. I have had four blood tests since then and everything was normal. At least what they consider normal. I don't think I have reached the optimum level for MY thyroid yet but I'm getting there. The Iodine Protocol is what changed my life!
I especially would like to thank Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame. Thank you for starting this group and for taking the time to answer everyone's questions. You are not getting paid to help us but yet you do it from the goodness of your heart. You are an angel sent to help those that suffer from thyroid issues. I wish you the best that life has to offer for you and your family, thank you Karen from the bottom of my heart.
Laurel From Maryland Writes: A shout out of gratitude to Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame, the real expert that has walked this hellish road before me . Can't walk this alone. But walking in good company. Don't know where I'd be without you .
Jennifer From California Writes: Karen's April Club Box of supplements is absolutely wonderful! After nearly a month of taking them, along with B2, my anxiety is so much better. I don't have nearly the amount of numbness in my face as I used to. Thank you, Karen!
Jim From New York Writes: Special thanks to Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame for the Healing Solutions Facebook group. I think it is truly a blessing to the members of this group. Karen spends a lot of time finding and posting very valuable information on this site that allows people to take charge of their own health issues. She donates a lot of her time answering questions people may have and is worth of great appreciation. Thank You Karen.
