Facing the Surgeons Knife
Facing the Surgeons Knife
I have struggled with lumps and bumps growing in my body for over 25 years and none have really caused me trouble except for the ones on my thyroid. The problem with the thyroid is that as soon as there is a growth in it the only solutions presented are surgery to remove the affected lobes, sad since my thyroid function was still 100%. My choices presented were to have the surgery or to simply live these growths. I wasn’t keen on choosing either of these options, but in 2010 I was left without a choice; the growth on my thyroid had become so large it was causing me problems, it had to be removed via surgery.
After my surgery things seemed to be on the up and up. There was no scar and my voice wasn’t scratchy at all. This meant I didn’t have to go on further medication.
Sadly this was short lived.
In 2015 I began to see and suffer the all too familiar symptoms: swelling and a lump back on my thyroid. All I could think to myself was ‘here we go again’. This let to more testing and long conversations with my Doctor, then in early 2016 it had reached that critical point again, another surgery was looming on the horizon…or so I thought.
This is when I got blessed and was introduced to Sanne from Avena, she encouraged me to to come and chat with Kameron at the office. Boy was I blown away. Kameron shared with me the tremendous power the body has inherently to heal itself. I was encouraged beyond belief. I went back home and chatted with my Doctor, he was helpful and intrigued the same way I was, together we decided on a six month trial period for me to explore this natural approach.
Let me be the first to say, this COMPLETELY changed my life!!!
I am so thankful for the support of the staff at Avena Originals as there were some struggles in the beginning but they cheered me on the entire way. Within three months I went from surgery to remove the last of my thyroid and being on medication for the rest of my life to my doctor saying “fantastic there is no inflammation there, keep doing what you are doing it’s working”. It has now been a year and though I am no longer following a vegan diet I am still eating better, keeping up with a plan of supplements and happy to report there are no concerns with my thyroid. My body healed itself thanks to these incredible supplements and the knowledge of how to use them, I will be forever grateful and a lifelong supporter of this company and it’s staff who were so supportive every step of the way.
