Do you know someone with Hashimoto's disease?

I received an email today from Food for Life where our Simple Living Toowoomba fermentation workshop will be held next month. In it was information about a free online Healing Hashimotos Summit which runs from 13-20 June (presumably US time) and I thought some of my readers might be interested.




While I personally don't have Hashimoto's Disease and don't know anyone with it apart from Sarah Wilson from I Quit Sugar ~ you can read her story here ~ according to the promo video for the summit in the US alone 53 million people have autoimmune diseases and of those roughly 22 millon have the disease which is incredible. It seems to be quite common among women as well for some reason.



It seems to be one of those diseases that you have for a while before you realise what is ailing you and some of the symptoms are weight gain, cold hands and feet, bloating, joint pains and aching muscles. So with symptoms like those, which are fairly common, I can imagine that a lot of sufferers would just put up with them before looking for a diagnosis.

Anyway, you just might be interested in registering for the summit if this subject is of interest to you as I never know who is reading my blog and at the moment there seem to be a lot of readers here from the US so a big HI to them and I hope you find something of interest here on this little Aussie blog.



For those who are wondering, I had no trouble 'downgrading' to Windows 7 and am so happy to be back with my familiar desktop once again where I can find everything. I know that eventually this PC will die and I will have to buy a new one with Windows 10 installed but I don't think that I will have the same issues as I have had with installing it on an old computer. I would have stayed with Windows 10 if it worked properly as I know I will have to get used to it eventually but it was too frustrating trying to use the computer while being signed in as a temporary user and I didn't like to fiddle too much with the settings...considering I had no idea what I was doing. LOL!

Have a wonderful week everyone!

  2. Learning new things all the time, had never heard of this disease and now I have to go look it up. There do seem to be a lot of autoimmune diseases these days, one of the girls I work with has one. Makes you think about where they all come from. I am hoping they will find that we have cut too much chocolate out of our diets in an effort to be healthy and we need to eat more to save ourselves. Hope springs eternal!!

  3. Mr.HM perhaps you can let them know about the summit. It just might help them. This post was supposed to be scheduled for later. I am a bit rusty with scheduling posts these days as I haven't done it for a while. I had better get back into the habit before I completely forget what to do ;-)

  4. Good to know the windows downgrade went well. By the time you need a need a new PC windows 10 will probably be old school and a different type of windows will be installed instead.

  5. I was watching a show on 9 life last night where they showed a house specially built with an undulating, multi textured floor,as research has shown that the feet walking on uneven various textures was a good boost to the immune system and having to keep your balance strengthens your core muscles and is beneficial to joints and general muscle tone.
    Basically this represents the path of human development when we were active and didn't wear shoes.....makes sense.

    1. Mimi, that's the thing. The symptoms are very common which I guess is why people don't seek treatment earlier.
