In early 2008, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s (autoimmune hypothyroidism). After refusing the recommended drugs, my then-doctor stated with shock and raised eyebrows, “Well, you can do whatever your little heart desires.” I did just that and my Hashimoto’s is now in unmedicated remission (although I do believe that thyroid drugs have their place). I’ve also suffered from mild alopecia (autoimmune hair loss) for 35 years and after ending up becoming one-third bald in my mid-40s, I have my full head of hair back.
