Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Amie Hornaman DCN, MsN, CFMP. She is also known as The Thyroid-Fixer, a woman on a mission to optimize thyroid patients around the world and give them their lives back using her transformation program: The COMPLETE Thyroid Fix Method (CTFM).

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 grabs your hand, gives you answers about your health that no one has told you and gives you the actual tools and treatment to fix you. That’s the transformational journey. 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.

In this episode, Dr. Amie opens up about her experience with health issues as a fitness model. Despite cleaning up her diet and exercising, Dr. Amie was gaining weight. After seeing six doctors, finally, Dr. Amie was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Dr. Amie speaks about knowing if you have a thyroid disorder and the role insulin resistance plays in your thyroid. Later, we talk about the benefits of keto and fasting when it comes to your thyroid. Tune in as we chat about berberine, toxins, and how to feel in control of your life.

[00:35] Gaining Weight and Experiencing Health Issues As A Fitness Model

  • At one particular fitness show, Dr. Amie started gaining weight instead of losing it.
  • Everybody knows their body. You know when your body is off.
  • Plus, Dr. Amie was tired, and her hair was falling off.
  • The doctor told her to eat less and exercise more. For Dr. Amie, that wasn’t possible.
  • Six diagnoses later, a doctor said she had hypothyroidism.

[04:15] How Long Does It Take For Conventional Medicine To Diagnose A Thyroid Disorder?

  • Doctors are looking at a standard lab range, which is huge. So, it’s challenging to know about thyroid problems with conventional medicine.
  • Some people see between six and ten doctors before learning about hypothyroidism.
  • Amie knows someone who saw forty doctors before she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
  • It’s different for everyone. However, if you know something is wrong with your body, then you can’t stop searching for answers.

[05:05] The Symptoms To Pay Attention To For Thyroid Disorders

  • You may have a thyroid disorder if you are gaining weight with proper diet and exercise.
  • There are other symptoms of thyroid disorders:
    • Hair loss
    • Fatigue
    • Constipation
  • Hypo is low and slow.
  • Your mood will be depressed, your energy will be down, and your ability to burn fat will be down.

[11:55] The Role Insulin Resistance Plays With An Underactive Thyroid

  • “I see insulin resistance in about 99% of my thyroid patients.” -Dr. Amie
  • The thyroid gland is the ultimate master gland of all of your trickle-down hormones.
  • If we are living a lifestyle of high carbs and high sugar, we are actually causing insulin resistance.
  • This type of lifestyle does produce a ton of inflammation.
  • High insulin levels will inflame the thyroid and cause the thyroid to not produce enough hormones.
  • Inflammation is beating up the thyroid gland.

[14:00] True or False: You Cannot Do Keto With An Underactive Thyroid

  • False!
  • Keto is by far the best way of eating for hypothyroid patients.
  • When there is inflammation, keto can be a total game-changer.
  • Keto will improve inflammation. Therefore, you can improve your thyroid production.

[20:30] Is Long-Term Ketosis A Good Idea For People With An Underactive Thyroid?

  • Being in ketosis for years without a break can lower your 3T3 levels.
  • Usually, it’s not a huge issue because it only lowers those levels a little bit.
  • Instead, Dr. Amie says to come out of ketosis everyone once in a while.
  • Break out of ketosis; that’s all you need to do.
  • Eat a sweet potato once a week. It will keep your thyroid gland active.

[28:20] True or False: You Can’t Fast With A Thyroid Issue

  • False!
  • When we're talking about the thyroid, we have to take into account the adrenal glands and cortisol production.
  • Adrenal fatigue is blown out of the water a little bit too much.
  • We do have to think about stress on the body and how it's going to affect your cortisol production.
  • You can’t deny the benefits of fasting.
  • If you wake up and you are not hungry, do not shove food down your mouth. If you wake up hungry, then eat. Your body gives you signals all the time; listen to them!

[33:00] Always Choose To Focus What Is Within Your Control

  • 80% you can control; 20% you can’t control.
  • You can control your choices and what you put into your mouth.
  • Also, you can choose what products you put on your body.
  • Make sure you limit down your exposure to toxins.
  • If you try to be perfect, you're just going to be at a standstill.

[36:00] Say Yes To Berberine: Incredible Health Benefits of This Supplement

  • Berberine works like Metformin.
  • The supplement will squish the highs and lows of your blood sugar.
  • Also, berberine has beneficial effects on the gut microbiota.
  • Lastly, berberine is beneficial to the GI tract.

[40:15] Dr. Amie Gives You Action Steps To Take Right Now

  • Get a full thyroid panel and look at it from a functional lens.
  • Eat a keto diet and fast.
  • Lastly, get restful sleep. It’s the foundation of health!
