HyperThyroidism Healed: Praise God!
Before meeting Dr. Jockers, I was on an unending cycle of medications and testing; medication to control my thyroid and testing to make sure the meds were not destroying my liver function. Every 6-8 weeks I visited my endocrinologist for blood work. I was told that there were only 2 options for Hyperthyroidism or “Graves Disease”, medication or radiation.
For 7 years he pushed me to have radiation treatment (which would destroy my thyroid) and take a synthetic drug to replace its function. With each push, I stood my ground and objected because I knew God made my body with a thyroid gland and it serves a purpose. In addition to Graves’ disease, I suffered without answers as to why my body was depleted of essential vitamins such as B12, D, and Calcium. After going to multiple doctors, the only answers I received were medications. My quality of life was diminished without a properly functioning thyroid as its effects on my body resulted in atrial fibrillation and extreme muscle fatigue.
I Received Hope
I received hope after meeting Dr. Jockers in Feb 2012 and gaining an understanding of subluxation and the benefits of a properly aligned spine, an anti-inflammatory diet, strategic exercises and a renewed mindset. I live about an hour away from Exodus Health Center. It was a sacrifice for my family to afford the cost of the care, gas and the healthy food I needed. However, we made a decision that my health and quality of life was more important. I began care in March 2012 and my bloodwork improved, my energy levels increased & I slept much better. I also lost 15 pounds. My MD began reducing my thyroid medication. It was such a low dose, that I decided to stop the medication altogether.
Dr. Jockers says “God who created the body is able to heal the body”. I had to soul search and ask myself if I really believed God and the journey He had me on. I believed God and the anointing He has placed on Dr. Jockers, the office and team at Exodus. After 3 months off of the medication, I had blood work done. My thyroid function was within a perfect range. My body was finally on a cycle of healing itself just as God created it. I have a role to play and I am staying on this road and pushing through whatever obstacle comes my way. I am so thankful for God placing me on the road to true restoration.
THE POWER THAT MADE THE BODY, HEALS THE BODY!
