About

Hey! I'm Adele du Rand, creator of Mastering My Thyroid!

Around here, I help other Hashimoto’s patients and people who struggle with the symptoms of a dysfunctional thyroid gland, to improve their wellbeing, increase their energy and reclaim their lives. 

I help you to make lifestyle and habit changes, and empower you with researched information to achieve their health goals!

It’s not just about taking a thyroid hormone pills.  Thyroid health, and specifically Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis health, is more than just taking thyroid hormones.  

Instead of covering the problem with a pill, we’ll work together to find the root cause and then address it.  The only way to amazing wellness and abundant energy is to create a healthy body. 

Even if you have been diagnosed with the autoimmune condition, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, you can take action to calm your immune system and even be symptom-free.   

But how do I know it works? 

Because I too have been diagnosed with the autoimmune condition, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, in 2015.  I have taken this journey myself. 

And I’ll never share anything with you that I haven’t (or wouldn’t) tried myself. 

Why I do what I do

When I was diagnosed with the autoimmune condition, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, in 2015, I was shocked, overwhelmed and scared.  I didn’t know what this meant in terms of my health, my life expectancy, and my life with my family!  There was no one who I could talk to about it.  There was no one to tell me that was going to be okay.  I remember the specialist physician telling me, after my diagnosis, to “just eat more protein and you’ll be fine”.  

I was not fine.  After being overwhelmed by Google for information on what I can and should do, I didn’t do anything for a whole year.  I was feeling so alone, and not to mention struggling with the ever-present exhaustion and the continued weight gain.  

In September 2016, I decided to do a 30-day juice challenge.  Out of desperation to feel better.  Because I just couldn’t go on the way I have been going on.  

This was the turning point in my health.  I started feeling more energy.  My skin cleared.  My brain felt awake for the first time in years!  I lost weight.  I slept through, waking up refreshed!  

Then I started to research what else I can do to be healthier.  Since then, I have made a lot of changes to calm my immune system, decrease my antibodies and increase my energy and wellbeing.  

I have also starting working with a functional medicine doctor.  This has been life-changing for me!

Now, I help other people who are ready to take ownership of their health, to create amazing results by making simple lifestyle changes, and having empowered and informed discussions with their doctors.

Talking about thyroid health

I wrote the book titled “Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis – A practical guide for the newly diagnosed to reduce your symptoms, increase your energy and redeem your life“.  This is everything I wish someone told me when I was first diagnosed with Hashimoto’s.

If you live in South Africa, you can order your copy here and I’ll have it delivered to you.  If you live anywhere else in the world, you can order your copy on Amazon!  

I break it down for you, piece by piece, so you can take the simple steps to help create incredible shifts in your health, energy, and life.

I also want to share information with other people who struggle with thyroid disease and created @masteringmythyroid on Instagram.  Please join me there!
