2020 Healing with Kakki Teodoro
Hello everyone! I am Kakki and I have an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto’s disease. I was diagnosed with this August 2019 when after about 2 years of discovering my hypothyroidism & PCOS, I was still plagued with fatigue, a weak immune system & continuous weight gain. Upon finding out that I have this condition, I went into a denial phase and ignored it, thinking “Okay, noted, but I am busy with my current show (Himala2019) until October so I’ll deal with this then.” Then I went on to travel to Japan, then Morocco, then back in Manila where I let myself go during the holiday season. But now it’s time to stop escaping and start healing. Completely. Holistically. From the inside-out.
“Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder in which your immune system creates antibodies that damage your thyroid gland. Doctors don’t know what causes your immune system to attack your thyroid gland. Some scientists think a virus or bacterium might trigger the response, while others believe a genetic flaw may be involved. A combination of factors — including heredity, sex and age — may determine your likelihood of developing the disorder.” (Mayo Clinic)
I’ve just started researching & studying this disease & I’ve learned that:
✅Women are much more likely to get Hashimoto’s disease.
✅You’re at higher risk for Hashimoto’s disease if others in your family have thyroid or other autoimmune diseases (my aunt has Hashimoto’s).
I’ve decided to be open about my journey and that this 2020, I’d like to take full responsibility and action to becoming fit & healthy once again.
I also realized that perhaps, I am the best person to experience this now, because in the bigger scheme of things, this will help me and my business. I have Diet Diva to help me with my nutritional needs, and now I have a new view on how people struggle with weight gain & weight-loss, which can help us create new food plans in the future.
For now, thanks for reading through this! If you struggle with something similar, message me! Let’s all help each other be better versions of ourselves Happy New Year!
