autoimmune hypothyroidismHi, I really hope you can help me. Im a 32 y/o female with autoimmune hypothyroidism and adrenal insufficiency. I acquired this through long-term use of the birth control Depo-Provera. I was diagnosed four years ago. I take Nature Throid for the hypothyroidism.
I have also developed multiple food allergies.
I have come a long way from where I was through diet and natural supplements but I was never 100% better.
I would like my life back. I was extremely active to where now I sit at home.
My symptoms consist of fatigue, dizziness, foggy thinking, forgetfulness, hair loss, and bloating no matter what I eat. I do not have thrush but I did go on a candida diet that had helped me but never fully healed me. I do best away from sugar and carbs. I cant lose weight around my waist and thighs no matter what I do.
I do have leaky gut or some sort of intestinal permeability.
My fatigue comes and goes. Some days I can exercise, other days I cant get out of bed.
My menstruation is highly irregular, heavy and extremely painful. This has always been a problem for me.

1. My main sufferings are generalized weakness and fatigue, and brain fog and forgetfulness. I have autoimmune hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, and some sort of intestinal permeability.

3. Mental sufferings are depression because I cant do the things I use to.
4. I feel burnt out and tired. I just want to lie in bed. Depressed.
5. It started after I was exercising a lot. I couldnt wake up for work and didnt care. This is connected to long term Depo-Provera use.
6. The worst time of day varies for me since my work times are not the same. Maybe midday, sometimes its late in the day. Sometimes its when I first wake up.
7. The things that aggravate my suffering is stress, not being able to fit into my clothes and generally not being about to accomplish the tasks I use to. The things that ameliorate it are sleeping, warm weather, being outside, and anything that makes me happy.
8. My sufferings do not have any relations to menses; I do feel better in the spring and especially the summer. I feel better when my mood is better so if I am somewhere where I am happy I usually feel better.

10. I am mild, agreeable, sometimes irritable and disinterested.

the rest away.
Did you take sips of this more than just two times?
After you take a dose, the homeopath has to evaluate your response,
before he can suggest when or if to take another dose - many times
people get a bit worse after a dose and then start feeling better.
