It’s time you were taken seriously when you have concerns about your health.

It has brought me to tears the last few weeks, not just what I’m about to share, but all the stories that followed in your messages and comments on my Instagram post about this very topic.

I am a huge advocate for patient/client care and believe that the holistic approach, and the work myself and other like minded practitioners do, should be a collaborative effort with medical professionals like doctors for whoever needs care that is in front of us, it’s not one or the other.

But I wanted to share this story with you, because I know too many women who have been told their blood work was ‘normal’ and that they just have to live with it… this is not the case, and certainly wasn’t the case for my client whose story I am sharing with you below.


So this happened just over a week ago…

I had a client that just couldn’t shift weight, a few things had popped up in the limited blood work her doctor had permitted her to do, but things just weren’t working.

She was eating PERFECTLY, like I take my hat off to her, whole real nourishing foods, following protocols 100%, yet the weight wasn’t shifting and I knew there was more to the picture (another reason why testing is so important)… we have to get to the root cause.

She went to her doctor about the weight loss issue, asking to investigate this further and requested a few more bloods. To which the doctor refused the blood work, blamed her weight on assumed case of PCOS, and then told her she shouldn’t be working with a nutritionist (aka me) because we don’t know what we’re talking about – she actually said a lot worse about me but I’ll leave it out.

So I took matters into my own hands, reached out to my own personal doctor to enable her to get these extra tests done, and GUESS WHAT HAPPENED?

She was diagnosed with an AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION of her thyroid, and her blood readings were off the charts! (meaning that this has most likely been going on for a long time under the radar).

This completely explains why she’s been unable to lose the weight, and has actually been feeling progressively worse no matter how many healthy changes she made in her diet and life.


Left untreated and ignored this could’ve been so much worse, and I am so grateful we pushed and got to the root cause for her… we both knew something wasn’t right and there was more to this picture.

So let this serve as a reminder… no matter what YOU know your body best, trust your intuition, and if something doesn’t seem right, don’t be afraid to keep questioning it until you get REAL answers!

Yours in Health & Happiness,
Sheree xo
