Our lymphatic system plays a critical role in immune health, is a major factor in our ability to detoxify, and helps to keep us in an anti-inflammatory state. If this weren’t enough, I’ve also realized that it impacts the health of our hair follicles and can be one of the factors in reversing alopecia.
I’ve traveled this complicated path of undiagnosed autoimmune hypothyroidism and depression that was, perhaps, misdiagnosed. And as I look back over the last 20 years through a different lens, I see that I identify with all of these underlying issues that led to the overly simplistic diagnosis of “depression.”
If you’re experiencing weight gain, sleep disturbance, brain fog, anxiety, exhaustion, forgetfulness, relationship issues, loss of libido, or lack of motivation, would it surprise you to know that these symptoms are present in both depression and hypothyroidism?
