After having my thyroid removed in 2003, I was told that it would only take about 2-3 years to level out my medication. Well...it took 15! It seems that they didn't have much information on hypothyroidism (or care) to accurately inform me how I should take my prescribed meds or to try and find other methods to deal with my issues before resorting to surgery. After many years of ups and downs with my health, I stumbled upon some interesting people who helped me research endocrine disruptors (hormonally active agents) that are found in many everyday products like health and beauty. Empowered with information, I was able to take my health in my own hands and ask those hard questions of my healthcare team. My experiences have led me to understand what it truly means to be a "product of your environment". My mission is to lead, as many as I can possibly reach, to the good, clean, natural beauty that is all around us.
