Today I had a super fun chat with my new friend Amie Hornaman on all things thyroid! I love chatting with like minded individuals who are on a mission to help us all GET HEALTHY and realize we can take ownership of our health to improve the aging process! As I say daily, I am on a mission to live my best life in my second half of living life! Somehow I turn 5-0 this November 5th, after being “35” for 15 years! As I reach this new age, I am going to e sharing my thoughts and lessons learned with you as well – as we know that life is not a race, it is a journey!
AMIE’S PASSION, PURPOSE AND MISSION: What is your WHY?
I’m on a mission to optimize thyroid patients around the world and give them their lives back using scientific elements of nutrition and functional medicine. After my own experience of insufferable symptoms, gaining 20+ lbs. while prepping for a figure competition followed by misdiagnoses and improper treatment, I set out to help others who I KNEW were going through the same set of frustrations and who were on the same medical roller coaster.
Amie Hornaman DCN, MsN, CFMP is a leading certified functional-medicine expert on a mission to optimize thyroid patients around the world and give them their lives back using scientific elements of nutrition and functional medicine. After her own experience of insufferable symptoms, misdiagnoses and improper treatment, Amie set out to help others who she KNEW were going through the same set of frustrations and who were on the same medical roller coaster.
She consults people around the world via telehealth/virtual appointments beginning with in depth 90- minute consultations addressing everything from lab values to nutrition to lifestyle. She specializes in clinically investigating underlying factors of chronic disease and customizing health programs for thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal dysfunctions, digestive disorders, and brain problems.
With a focus on optimizing thyroid function and thus optimizing her patients, Amie looks at each person as a unique individual and not JUST a lab value. She examines all factors that tie into thyroid dysfunction and thyroid symptoms and treats the person from top to bottom to give them their lives back.
We discuss all thing THYROID Health and CHRONIC Stress- CHRONIC FATIGUE!
- How do you actually OPTIMIZE your thyroid?
- Why diagnosing/treating thyroid patients on TSH alone is an injustice.
- What does it mean to be OPTIMAL and not just “normal”?
- How does CHRONIC Stress impact our Thyroid – and how would that dysfunction impact our ability to BURN FAT, improve athletic performance or achieve performance gains and the aging process- longevity?
- Optimal ranges and what insights the results provide to figure out the WHY and How to regain health to be fit and healthy from inside out.
- Why we need to get the full panel to see the entire pictures- plus what other labs would you suggest?
- What is included in a full thyroid panel? What we should ask our Doctors to test (get paid by insurance when you can!) and how the results correlate to other imbalances or dysfunctions – clues.
- WHY do women need to do more strength training and less chronic cardio!
