Last January, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism – and I had let it go for so long that I was in ROUGH shape. It took me over six months and switching a few doctors to bounce my levels back to where they needed to be to even function at all. Yet, I still felt the lack of energy, the headaches, and all of the other symptoms that come with things not being just right.
I happened upon a research article that discussed ways to bring down the antibody levels in the body. I already was taking supplements, yet this article mentioned something new – Black Cumin seed. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, and gets rid of one of the causes of hypothyroidism – H. pylori in the intestines. Looking into the Black Cumin seed further, it seemed to be something that truly helped those with autoimmune disorders. I decided to give it a try, as I wanted to feel more like myself again.
I personally chose Amazing Herbs Black Cumin Seeds, a brand that uses Vegetarian capsules and is gluten- and dairy-free. I took four capsules each morning with my coffee and breakfast. The capsules are regular-sized, and tasted kind of like pizza herbs after digesting (who doesn’t love pizza?).
Within One Month of Black Cumin Seeds Daily:
– My throat only felt slightly “full” after eating
– My foggy head started to clear
– I could fall asleep a little easier
– I only woke up once or twice in the night
– I was feeling happier each day
Within Three Months of Black Cumin Seeds Daily:
-My throat no longer felt “full” after I ate
– My thinking became very clear – multitasking became easy again
– I had very little joint aches, even after heavy lifting at the gym
– My energy levels skyrocketed – I was able to do so much more during my workday
– I lost any and all bloat in my tummy
– My face acne that had flared up after being diagnosed completely disappeared
– Waking up was easy – no more grogginess
– Falling asleep was easy
– I could sleep through the night
– I was genuinely in a great mood every day, and my moods were stable
Before I tried Black Cumin seed, I was already taking other supplements to try to naturally improve my gut health and bring my condition around. Read my earlier post to learn what I do for that. However, if you have already tried nearly EVERYTHING like I did, I suggest giving the Amazing Herbs Black Cumin a try. It is recommended that you continue to take them, even after you feel better, or else you may notice your symptoms returning.
Keep fighting the good fight, fellow thyroid warriors!
