Epigenetics: Definition & Examples – Live Science
I am happy to share this wonderful update from a dear friend who’s finding amazing relief after a very long journey of reversing Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. You can follow her journey at http://www.indigofam.com.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland that covers the thyroid cartilage. This gland secretes hormones that are needed for many of our body’s vital functions. The most common thyroid conditions are hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Hashimoto’s and Graves diseases are more advanced thyroid conditions that are classified as autoimmune and have predisposing genetic markers.
The author of this post, IndigoMama, gives a great description of how she customizes self-care with the best of both conventional and natural medicine to heal her body. The idea that she demonstrates is what the field of epigenetics points to as a way to create a better body than what was passed on to us from our parents. This day in age, we need to use all the resources available to us to find the specific combination that works for each of us instead of accepting only the cookie cut out version of either kind of medicine. Only until we do this are we able to halt and reverse many of our most complicated health issues. This step-by-step journey is your best bet toward empowering your gift to heal your life.
