There is no doubt that the management of Thyroid disease can be incredibly complex.
Stuarts own personal experience *(Life without a Thyroid) affords him valuable insight into many of the issues that can accompany Thyroid disorders.
Issues that Thyroid sufferers may find themselves facing:
• Low self-esteem
A spiritual perspective can sometimes be a useful way of exploring Thyroid disorders and can sometimes generate powerful insights, for example: Problems with the Thyroid may be connected to our personal expression and whether or not we have the capacity to speak our truth or to make decisions!
Author of Heal your Body, Louise L. Hay (1984), suggests to us that all disease is a result of negative thought patterns and offers the following perspective on Thyroid conditions:
• Thyroid- Humiliation “I never get to do what I want to do. When is it going to be my turn?”
• Hyperthyroidism- Rage at being left out.
• Hypothyroidism- Giving up, feeling hopelessly stifled.
