Finally, some hope

I have been pretty worried the last few months. As you may remember, back in June I left a full-time job for a contract position. I have done some great work and everyone was happy with the way I managed the project I was hired to help with ....more

Book Review: The Hormone Cure by Sara

I rarely review a book before I finish reading it, but this one is compelling enough and probably would be of interest to my blog readers, so I'm jumping the gun a bit.

Gluten-free Hashimoto's experiment results

I thought I'd share this since it may be able to help someone else. After 6 years of conventional thyroid treatment for Hashimoto's, I was only getting worse. I went to an alternative practitioner, who suggested I try going gluten- and dairy-free....more
