In this episode, I talk with Alison Marras, who shares her personal story of reaching remission from Hashimoto’s disease, along with healing SIBO and parasites.
In her mid-20s, Alison was working long hours in the corporate world in New York City, was newly married and hoping to start a family. But soon, she experienced frustrating health issues such as hair loss and digestive distress. At one point, she had lost 75% of her hair.
Despite all that, her lab tests looked normal. Finally, she found a naturopath willing to do more extensive thyroid testing, which uncovered Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune thyroid condition.
From there, she began taking steps to heal her body from the inside out, including an anti-inflammatory diet, bioidentical hormone therapy, gut-healing and reducing stress. Eventually, she reached remission from Hashimoto’s and got pregnant despite having polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, since her teens. And she finally overcame SIBO, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
Alison’s experience changed the course of her life. She went back to school to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. She’s also the author of The Paleo Gut Healing Cookbook and blogs at FoodbyMars.com. She believes your healing journey with real food can be a stress-free lifestyle filled with joy and flavor.
