Reconnecting with goddess the goddess within as I live, learn, and love. Life presents many tests and trials we can’t let them bring us down. We have to take it as a learning experience and build our inner strengths in times of adversity. Writing helps me to connect. My posts come from my heart. I do it to clear my mind. In the process if it helps someone else who may be facing similar issues I am even more grateful. I guess in a way it allows me to live up to my birth name, Monique – advisor.

The Healer?

5 years ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a disorder in which your thyroid doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone. The thyroid regulates the metabolism so when it is under active it slows the metabolism down. We should all know what a slow metabolism causes, weight gain, infertility, and depression amongst other things. My main concern when I was diagnosed was that it could have been the reason it was so hard for me to lose weight. My doctor put me on Synthroid. I remember asking her if this was permanent. She said that I would have to take Synthroid for the rest of my life. I don’t like prescription drugs so hearing that broke my heart.
After years of taking it and having my doses increased I thought for sure that I would be stuck with that condition. After my brother passed, on the day of his funeral I turned to my favorite green plant. The one that I would normally use recreationally every now and then. I stopped taking all of the prescriptions my docs had me on. This time I smoked it for a whole year, everyday, all day while I was grieving the loss of my brother. Without it I couldn’t sleep. So anyway here we are 2 years after my brother passed. I went for a check up and my doc asked if I was still taking my meds and I told her I wasn’t. I asked if the condition could be cured. Of course she told me no. So she immediately wanted to do blood work. When my results came back, my thyroid function was perfectly normal. My second doctor didn’t believe the first so I was tested again, sure enough the results came back exactly the same. I no longer have hypothyroidism which they said couldn’t be cured:-/ I can’t say for sure if it was my lucky green plant that healed me. I have a strong feeling it was. It does have medicinal properties. I would love to see more factual research on the plant. What else can it heal?
