  1. Thank you so much for this video! You are truly inspiring and it is so fufiling to see that you have overcome this and are coming back stronger than ever. If you can, I’d love to see a video, maybe in one of your Q&A’s, of advice/tips on how to get that strength/motivation back to go back to class after being out for a long period of time. I have been off of ballet since August due to injury, and I’m almost ready to get back within the next few weeks, but it is so hard for me to find that motivation that I had not too long ago. It’s like I’m in such a slump from being away from ballet for so long, it’s almost as if it’s making it harder to go back? If this makes sense? Watching your video though, has given me a new shine of hope.. Thank you for it:)

  2. Thank you so much for mentioning how soy should be avoided as it causes weight gain, hormone disruption – and yet is in everything!
    My mother had thyroid problems growing up (but I think it was hyperthyroidism), so I have wondered if I have any hereditary thyroid issues. I do feel depression, muscle weakness and tiredness and put on weight super easily (especially back when I used to not read labels. I cut out soy and the weight practically fell off) given my activity level, so it is a possibility. I had no idea about the other foods you mentioned affecting the thyroid glad as well (though I do make sure to cook my spinach as it contains oxalates which cause kidney stones, and cooking destroys them), thanks for the informative video/post.

  3. I think anyone with ANY kind of autoimmune disorder can relate to this. Thanks for being so candid about this subject. So happy to hear that you are feeling like your old self again. Rooting for you!

  4. Katie, thank you for sharing this. It prompted me to get my thyroid checked and am now fighting with the doctors since I have Hashimotos but my other levels are good despite having issues not unlike yours and they want to do nothing.

  5. Katie, thank you for sharing this. It prompted me to get my thyroid checked. I am now fighting with the doctors since I have Hashimotos but my other levels are good despite having issues very similar to yours and they do not want to treat me. best of luck to you and much love.
