  • Cienna: The past 24 hours have been what dreams are made of! Yesterday I finally had the opportunity to meet @cecegetyoursicktogether in person after being friends for years. We had the most fantastic time together and I can’t say enough about what an wonderful person she is! Stay tuned for adventures together next week! Today, I received news my neurologist and I never thought I would get. About a year ago I met Dr. Goodman and had one of the worst autonomic workups he had seen. He started trying to find out what was causing my lack of breathing and hoped that maybe that was what was making my problems so extreme. The last time I saw him he put me on palliative care, told me there was a very real chance that I could die, decided to go for the diaphragm pacemaker surgery as a hail Mary(that he could only guess might help), and that the odds weren’t in my favor of making it to my diaphragm pacemaker surgery and then surviving surgery. During the diaphragm pacemaker surgery I had to have life saving measures used five times, but I made it. The recovery has been harder than any of my doctors imagined and I have a stomach disorder as a result of it. We knew that the diaphragm pacemaker making me breathe had taken me from passing out 2-3 times a day to once a month and that I am feeling so much better than before. Today we got the results of the tests that a year ago were some of the worst he had seen. My autonomic tests were so much better that I didn’t even meet the diagnostic criteria for POTS(postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) I still am diagnosed with POTS and always will be because those results can change on the daily, but for now it is the most controlled it has ever been for me. We are rechecking it in a couple months to hopefully make some treatment changes to get rid of that last episode of passing out I have a month, but for now we are celebrating a success that my doctor never in his wildest dreams thought I would have. He says that with my other conditions I still am extremely complicated and sick, but that this is one of the biggest miracles he has witnessed! Today and everyday I am truly blessed with every breath! #servicepuppiper

  • Let’s be real. I slept in this morning until 10am, took the pups for a walk with my boo @glutenfree_dad, got ready for lunch, drove a few miles, ate lunch. Then, picked up some containers for the girls room, drove home and took a long nap.

My secret talent is getting tired without doing anything... thanks to chronic reactivated Epstein Barr Virus and I’m sure some Hashimoto’s symptoms.

The truth is... it’s okay. I’m allowed to be tired after a good night sleep... and after a long afternoon nap and so are you.

It’s not easy to accept it, but it is what it is and with our kiddos visiting my parents in NY this week I’m taking time off from designing websites, from managing projects, from parenting and just spending down time with my sexy husband while kicking EBV to the curb (eventually!!). So, what’s your secret talent?

  • Things are about to get real friends… I have a love/hate relationship with my body!  Stick with me here...
.
On one hand, after a long struggle with infertility, she responded like a CHAMP to the efforts I put in (once I finally learned what she needed).. HELLO 5 babies in 7 years!  Can we say #Overachiever … so, my body gets me. She was patiently waiting for me to “get it” and when I did… BOOM! Prayers answered!
.
On the other hand, because of the myriad of LITERAL genetic issues (have you read my blog post on MTHFR… its just the beginning friends), I’ve had to fight for wellness and I CONSTANTLY battle with the unwanted pounds and clothing sizes.🤦‍♀️
.
I ONLY want to be healthy, have energy, move without pain, be strong enough to wear all the babies and toddlers, and if I’m being honest… tough enough to carry all FIVE of my children and RUN should a Zombie apocalypse ever strike🤣. .
So, I am so encouraged by all of the initiatives out there speaking of #BodyPositivity and against #BodyShaming which is almost always self inflicted.  I join with them in saying you were made to shine, to smile, to encourage, to lift, and to love from wherever you stand and in whatever body shape and size you are currently! .
At 40, what I've learned in my journey is this…  I must give myself grace in certain seasons AND then I MUST love myself enough to do the hard things!  Loving and appreciating my body is not permission to have a constant cookie cake free for all.😜 Loving my body meant doing multiple Whole30s and learning what foods triggered all my aches and pains.  It meant recognizing what it means to be Insulin resistant and why I DO NOT want to be a diabetic. It meant ridding my personal care products and home of loads of toxins! It means accepting that sacrifice is not a dirty word and is a part of life to be embraced and appreciated for its blessings! .
Bottom line… loving yourself means accepting where you are while acknowledging you can do better! Yes... I said it! We are works in progress and if you continue to do the best you can in each season (and that is the grace part), you will be even stronger, healthier, and happier in your days and years to come❤

  • {long but worth the read post}

Let’s talk miscarriage. 
As you may or may not know, I announced a few weeks ago that my husband and I had our first {and hopefully only} miscarriage. 
We told those who had known we were pregnant, and that was that. In letting those people know, more people that I had ever though also said they had experienced the same thing. 
But... saying “miscarriage” made me feel shameful. Why!? I think that women feel shame for having one. It’s like a taboo thing to talk about. Granted, I didn’t want to go on the roof and yell about my experience, but it’s nothing to hide. Yes it’s painful. Yes you have grief. But in all those emotions, you don’t need to be alone. 
Lean on your partner. Lean on your family. Lean on your friends. I ask you to not go it alone. Cry, smile, scream if you need to but don’t hide the fact you’re hurting. 
Sister, it’s a “yes, but not now” situation. 
If you need to talk, if you need someone who understands where you are at, what you have gone through, or what you’re going through, I am here if you need me. 
I am proud that my body gave me the opportunity to get pregnant, even if for a brief moment. Especially with all the issues I have going on. And I am proud to keep trying. 
See you in heaven angel child. God needed you more than we did. ❤️

  • World Thyroid Day, and it’s new meaning to me.

Diagnosis. (Long post alert, and please bare with my grammar as English was never my strongest subject in school, haha)

I try not to think about this part of my life much because honestly it was a very very dark time. Flashback to summer of 2018: I was working a pretty physically demanding job. As the summer went on, I noticed myself not being able to do as much as I used to. I was pretty well in shape, so this was a bit of a red flag for me. Suddenly, I was unable to make it through my shifts without feeling unbelievably sick. I thought I was just coming down with something and it would pass in a few days. Obviously, it didn’t. Red flag intensifies. I continued to drag myself to work, only to continue feeling faint, completely exhausted, and unable to make it through my shifts. During this time, I also discovered a lump in my chest. Queue more panic. About 4 days of leaving work early later, I broke down panicking and crying to my managers that I needed to go home and that I was sorry and I have no idea what is going on, and that I needed a break to figure things out. I thought maybe I had just overworked my body, and I’d be fine after two weeks of rest and a doctors appointment. Wrong again. I made the decision to quit my job and just focus on fixing my body. Over a span of a few months, my doctor ordered a giant slew of blood tests which all came back normal. Referral to a heart doctor, where everything came back normal besides slightly low blood pressure. An ultrasound for the lump and a biopsy, benign. I thought ok if all of these tests are coming back normal and the doctors say I am fine then why am I not improving? Am I dying of something that the doctors are missing? I suddenly could not make it through the day without having multiple insanely severe panic attacks. I couldn’t leave the house. I couldn’t drive my car. Couldn’t even go on a simple walk. I literally needed to have someone nearby at all times because I thought I was going to have a giant medical emergency since I felt so terrible and had no answers as to why.

  • Do I have to change my diet and lifestyle if I choose Natural Therapy?

It is quite likely that some modification will be required. The impact of diet and lifestyle is well documented and plays a significant role in virtually every aspect of health.

Collaborating with a practitioner identifies and thus corrects the underlying causes that trigger illness.

If you are unwilling to change you may at best get some symptomatic relief. However the practitioner will work with you and make practical suggestions that will fit in context with your day to day life.

  • Time to put these loops and sliders away! Last workout of this program and it’s so cathartic! There was no crazy transformation for the eye to see, even though I did loose 8 pounds....but, I gained so much!

I healed 3 injuries to my wrist, knee and ankle through modifications. Just this past week severe food poisoning.

My thyroid came back with a vengeance, causing a multitude of symptoms to include lethargy, joint pain, and brain fog. I was proactive and was re-diagnosed and re-medicated for my Hashimotos and hypothyroidism.

Battled severe bloat that often had me not fitting in my clothes by noon or waking up to look like I haven’t worked out in a year! #thankshashimotos

I became more proactive about what I should and shouldn’t eat for MY body, by discovering my food sensitivities. #byeeggs

We went on countless trips and events and I worked out in hotels, apartment gyms and others homes. I just stayed the course.

I’ve always continued working out, but in the past I’ve been so quick to change programs to adjust to how I feel vs. just adjusting with it! I was so determined no matter what the scale said, the tape showed in inches or the mirror showed back at me...I would finish and I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!

I’ve learned so much about my body in this 80 days, than I have in the last 2 years! I became in tune with myself and that gift is truly priceless!

When it gets hard, keep going! Lean in! Our bodies don’t come with a manual, you must be proactive. Ask questions. Find the answers. I’m so excited about this next chapter, having so much knowledge about myself that NOW is when the work really begins and I’m excited to share that journey with you! Remember you are never alone and I’m rooting for you too! 🦋 #thyroiddiseaseawareness #strongsavvysophisticated #newbeginnings

  • It’s #WorldThyroidDay. I didn’t say “Happy Thyroid Day” because I’m not yet mature enough to forgive mine for all the havoc. 🤪 Truth be told tho, I got myself to the place on the left—hellllllla inflamed and in pain and fed up with life (#hashimotos). Now I’m #glutenfree/#soyfree, 25 lbs down, replacing dysfunctional hormones and working on making peace with my body. Ironic that the symbol for thyroid is the 🦋. I never felt less free and less beautiful than when this was unfolding. But when you address it, it all kinda makes sense. To those struggling with #thyroid problems or #autoimmune disorders, you have a friend in me. 💪 XO

  • It’s #worldthyroidday so let’s talk about  #hashimotos & #hypothyroidism It is one of the most common autoimmune diseases out there. It can be triggered by environmental factors such as viral infections, chronic mold exposure, stress, heavy metal pollution, & frequent ingestion of endocrine disruptors (like glyphosate, bpa, parabens, etc)
_
The British Medical Journal study shows the range of thyroid treatment differs between academic research physicians & clinicians in the field. The authors of the BMJ study say that thyroid insufficiency shouldn’t be treated unless TSH is very high. TSH - (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone)is a hormone in the pituitary gland that increases in the blood if thyroid hormone levels in target cells decrease. However, the study excludes the fact that the diagnosis of hypothyroidism & Hashimotos arises not only on a TSH test, but several (TSH, T3, T4 in the blood, T3 & T4 in 24h urine & thyroid antibodies) along with obtaining vital info from the patient about their symptoms (collecting complaints of thyroid insufficiency - morning exhaustion, cautiousness, weight gain, etc.) & physical examination (physical signs - swelling of the lower eyelids, a puffy face, dry skin, slow Achilles reflexes, dry skin, thinning of outter eyebrow etc.).
_
Usually with Hashimotos, giving thyroid hormones might be necessary. The thyroid gland is a little orchestra conductor of almost every organ in the body. 
_
The conventional treatment with L-thyroxine/ Levothyroxine (T4) is not always the best choice bc some do not convert well to the active T3 hormone. The following are needed when treating the thyroid:
1. Combo of T4/T3 medication. 
2. Specific constitutional diet guidelines that is anti-inflammatory to help the immune system. Always good to avoid gluten & dairy
3. Mild detoxification of heavy metals & exogenous chemicals
4. Decreasing infectious load, dental infection & detoxing from mold toxins
5. Proper supplementation of: selenium, zinc, iodine, vitamin D & B12, fish oil
6. Avoiding coffee & alcohol as they decrease the absorption 
7. Sunlight exposure .

  • THREE different people asked me this yesterday. THREE. I know they don’t know the struggle. I know telling me to “get on it” is truly coming from a good place. I know they don’t mean harm, but every single time I go to my fiancé’s job I’m asked at least once about making C into a big brother. Don’t you think if I could tell you when we’re having another, I would? My go-to response is “We get married in September, so sometime after that”. But that excuse will only last so long. Then the heartbreak starts. Three years to conceive C. Three long years. No one knew we weren’t on birth control. No one knew I was diagnosed infertile at the tender age of 17. Everyone thought we just messed up and accidentally got pregnant. NO. C was a miracle. Another baby will be a miracle so I’d appreciate it if people could stop asking when miracles would happen, because only God knows. 
How do you guys deal with this? How do you respond when someone asks when you’re having a baby?

  • Getting asked for this protocol quite a bit lately, so I wanted to share it again ❤️
.
.
.
Hashimoto’s, hypothyroidism, thyroid support- these are the tools you need. A year and a half ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s- an autoimmune disease where your body is attacking itself. Yep, that’s actually possible. I didn’t know what that meant for my health, all I knew was I was so sick of being exhausted every single day, having my hair fall out, my skin being extra dry and my body aching daily. .
.
.
Before I went in for my follow up appointment to figure out what the plan would be, I did a lot of research for alternative options. Lucky for me already had these amazing tools right in my home. I went to my doctors appointment with tons of information for my doctor and she was completely on board with going this more natural route. .
.
.
Here’s what I followed daily:
-A full dose of Live Long Vitality for general wellness, antioxidant and DNA protection, energy support, metabolism, bone health, immune function, stress management, healthy hair, skin and nails, digestive health and cardiovascular health. If you have Hashimoto’s you know why Support for these body systems are so important. -In a Rollerball combine:
25 drops Lemongrass: calms the nervous systems & relieves stress 
10 drops Frankincense: supports at a cellular and DNA level
25 drops Clove: stimulates immune system 
4 drops Peppermint: stimulates limbic system
Roll over thyroid twice a day. .
In an empty veggies capsule:
2 drops Lemongrass 
2 drops Myrrh 
Twice daily. .
.
Lastly, I changed my diet. I stuck to an anti inflammatory diet. No dairy, no gluten, no refined sugar, no processed foods. It sounds like you can eat nothing, but once you do it it gets easier and you’ll feel so good! Tag someone you know that could use this ❤️ #hashimotosdisease #hashimotos #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #protocol #naturalsolutions #essentialoils #doterra #naturalsolutions #essentiallypurified #naturallyyou #wellness #holistichealth #holistic #essentiallypurified #essentiallempowered #cawellness  #naturallyliving

  • Ever watched your dog or cat or other companion animal rest?

Then you know that they stay completely in the moment and give themselves over 100% to rest and enjoy.

No guilt.

No shame. 
No self-judgment or self-consciousness. 
They don’t worry about “not being productive” or “wasting time” because they follow the simple wisdom of their bodies to rest and restore. 
When you do get the chance to rest, embrace it guilt and judgement free. 
Channel your inner cat. 💕 #restisbest #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #hashimotos

  • It started with me not being able to remember things. Like names and song lyrics I’ve been singing forever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then I felt exhausted ALL THE TIME. Extreme fatigue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I could sleep 10 hours and wake up more tired than when I went to bed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then the insomnia and night sweats kicked in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And so did the anxiety and depression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next came the weight gain (50 lbs in 2 years) even though I changed nothing about how I ate or how much I worked out.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next my face was showing more wrinkles and became extremely dry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then eyes that felt like the desert. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My voice started getting hoarse. I couldn’t sing or talk as much. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My period stopped. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then my hair started falling out in clumps! This was the last straw.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had asked my doctor for 2 straight years what was wrong with me? Every 3 months!! Why did I feel this bad at 41? I was told WELCOME TO YOUR 40’s. This is what it’s like now. You’re also perimenopausal.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I honestly went home and collapsed in my husband’s arms. “If this is what I feel like now I’ll never see my 50s! I can’t feel this bad much longer!!!!!” I screamed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Little did I know, the same thing was happening to him. He just doesn’t ever complain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I decided to get a second opinion and that doctor said “It sounds like your thyroid but your levels are normal.” as he scratched his head. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That was enough to give me some direction. Praise God that he said that thought out loud. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I spent the next year and a half immersing myself in research and study. I talked to hundreds of other thyroid patients that had the same story as me. Doctors had failed them and they had learned how to reverse their symptoms and to use better medications (with more open minded doctors) than Levothyroxine or Synthroid that just don’t help most people with actual symptoms.

  • Hey I’m back in a low impact way. It’s been 15 months since my last workout. Few important updates:
1. My hip is still jacked up. I don’t know what’s wrong. I’ve added craniosacral therapy, deep-tissue massage, 2 months of 3x/week physical therapy ($$$$), a steroid injection in my hip, a steroid injection in my SI joint ($$$$), three different chiropractors with different philosophies, and acupuncture to the list of things I’ve tried that haven’t helped. I hurt within ten minutes of walking, and after this workout today my hip’s been bothering me the entire rest of the day. 
2. I discovered I have a nightshade sensitivity so I’ve removed all types of tomatoes and peppers from my diet. White potatoes are harder to ditch but also don’t cause as big of a reaction as the other two so it’s easier for me to bend the rules. I hate eggplant so that’s not an issue. 
3. I have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which is an autoimmune disease causing hypothyroid. Cool. 
4. My “ankle sprain that never healed” pain is actually two of my foot bones are fused and there’s arthritis in the joint. Cool cool. 
5. My sedentary-ness because of my hip pain (plus my metabolism being shot after two hyperemesis pregnancies and four years on antidepressants) has caused significant weight gain, which causes additional pressure on my joints. Cool cool cool.

So hey I’m here, I’m trying to figure out how to move my body and not be in endless pain, and I can still bench the bar (I was honestly pretty concerned). #meghatescardio #girlswholift #autoimmunedisease #hashimotos #chronicillness #chronicpain

  • Anyone ever have Ovia designate special conditions for them?! I only put in “diagnosed infertility”, and I would’ve put Hashimotos in there, but it wasn’t an option. As far as I know I don’t have PCOS or Endometriosis 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
Also added my calendar because I don’t know what the hell is up with this cycle. Last cycle was late ovulation, late period, and now my period lasted 6 days (still spotting today on CD8) when usually its 4-5 days INCLUDING spotting.
