Hello, I'm Ro. In 2016, I was officially diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease that attacks and destroys your thyroid tissue. I had been experiencing symptoms for years and went to multiple doctors and specialists but found no answers. In that time, I suffered from other autoimmune issues like alopecia arreata, arthritis and eczema. I also had shingles, something only immunocompromised people get. Finally, after receiving the diagnosis 'by accident' after a trip to my gynecologist, I embarked on two years of intense research into thyroid autoimmune disease and overall health. In 2018, I started the AutoImmune Protocol along with high quality supplements and lifestyle changes including stress management. My Hashimoto's when into remission and I felt better than ever. That same year, I finally got pregnant after eighteen months of "unexplained" fertility issues.
I hold a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University and am a Certified Integrative Health Coach specializing in thyroid health.
