Five years ago, I was told that I would need to be on medication for hypothyroidism for the rest of my life. I suffered from terrible anxiety and depression since I was 18 and was told, "take this pill to take the edge off."
I met Dr. Lindsay at a Breathing Room Yoga Center workshop and my life changed. We did a very comprehensive look at all kinds of levels in my body, determined that I actually have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, and with a lot of work and care, I CAN go into remission. Additionally, we discovered that my dopamine levels were in the toilet with a reading of under six when they should be between 40-390mcg/g. She told me that no wonder I was always stressed out and full of anxiety.
Last week, we did another round of blood work and my thyroid levels are dropping into more realistic levels. I've come off all prescription anxiety medications and my dopamine levels are nearing 100. I'm down to one prescription instead of four and have replaced them with natural supplements. If it wasn't for Margot Broom introducing me to Dr. Lindsay and her commitment to education and clean living, I'm certain that I'd still be stuck in the horrific rut that I had been in for years. It is for this and many other reasons that Breathing Room Community, Yoga & Wellness Center has become an incredible home for me.
