Hashimoto's Thyroiditis





Red River Health and Wellness has literally changed my life. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Disease. Prior to coming here, I had difficulty functioning due to brain fog. I could not enjoy a quality of life with my husband, my children, and my grandchildren as I had no energy. I could literally feel the inflammation in my joints and internal organs. I experienced daily heart palpitations, lightheadedness, constant bruising on my body, and excessive weight gain. Insomnia plagued my body night after night, week after week, which resulted in extreme exhaustion. I tried going to several different doctors only to be told there was nothing wrong with me, and my thyroid tested in the “normal” range. On the outside, I look just fine, but on the inside, I was really struggling with my overall health.

I had literally given up any hope of finding help or relief for this condition until mid-October of 2017 when I happened to hear about Red River Health and Wellness in St. George Utah. This is a clinic that specializes in diseases of the thyroid. I called immediately to schedule an appointment. I found out they had just opened up a new clinic in Southern Nevada, which is where I live.

Talk about an answer to my prayers! I met with Dr. Jeremy Swindlehurst and began my journey to better health. After extensive tests, I started a health and wellness program customized for my personal health issues.

It is now four months later. I feel so much better! For the first time in many, many years, I am able to sleep 6-8 hours at night; I have energy and I am enjoying my life again. I have now lost over 50 pounds of inflammation off my body; my heart palpitations have stopped, and my joints no longer hurt. Thank you, Dr. Swindlehurst/Red River Health and Wellness for giving me back my quality of life. I will be forever grateful!

PS: I just did my first 5k last weekend! I've already signed up to participate with my son and my daughter in another 5K later this spring. Looking forward to a more active life in the future!
