first steps program
A 5-module, self-guided online program that will get you started in your healing journey to good health and living the life that you want!
First Steps teaches you how to identify the root causes of your Hashimoto's (or other autoimmune disorders) and provides you with the tools and guidance to make the necessary dietary changes in your life - all without expensive testing or supplements!
This is for you if ...
- you have an autoimmune disorder and you're tired of battling body aches and pains, fatigue, brain fog, hair loss, and weight gain
- you're frustrated that you've tried the restrictive diets, the expensive supplements and they don't seem to work
- you're committed to improving your health and look forward to living your life to the fullest again.
- you realize that there is no quick fix to healing a chronic disorder, but you're excited about taking some strategic, initial steps towards healing
Address The Root Causes of Your Hashimoto's and Start Relieving the Fatigue, Brain Fog, Weight Gain, and Other Symptoms that are making you Miserable.
If you're one of the 5-10% of people suffering from Hashimoto's thyroiditis, I don't need to tell you about the chronic fatigue, the brain fog, the anxiety and depression, the weight gain, the muscle pain, or even the hair loss - you already know about it. And you know how it's impacting your life. You just have to remember what your life was like before and the activities you were able to enjoy with family and friends - things that you're not doing now.
And I probably don't need to ask you about your frustration with medications that only help a little bit, the special diets that are too strict and take too much time and energy to prepare. And the lack of support from traditional medical practitioners, and all of the information about supplements and super foods that are guaranteed to work ... but don't for you.
Are you ready to take the first step in healing - one that is based on the functional medicine concept of addressing root causes? Identifying and addressing the root causes of a disorder is the only path to healing and sustainable good health.
One of the main root causes of any autoimmune disorder is your exposure to toxins. There are toxins in the air we breathe, the foods we eat, the water we drink, and the lotions that we put on our skin. Toxins cause inflammation that can lead to muscle and joint pain, food sensitivities and allergies, and autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto's.
Your toxic load is the total of all the toxins that you allow into your body (and some that your body produces naturally as a consequence of doing its job). We live in an increasingly toxic world and your body can be under constant stress or overwhelm if you do not create an environment in which it can function optimally. This environment depends on both your toxic load and the nutritional support you provide to all of the organs in your body.
I created this program because, as a certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, I've met so many people who can't access the personalized health coaching that could help them, but need a structured strategy to start their healing.
There is no magic pill or superfood that will cure Hashimoto's. The only way forward is to improve your body's environment and that takes some education, breaking old habits and creating new, healthier habits. This takes some time and support and my program offers that ... to those who are committed to healing their body and enjoying the activities of life again.
This program helps you create the environment that your body needs to heal and thrive by first addressing your diet - this is the most fundamental step.

Here’s what people are saying about the Healing Hashimoto's: First Steps Program
I’ve had hashimoto’s for a long time, and what I’ve learned in my own journey is that there is no medication that will magically me feel better. To feel better, I needed to make changes in my life. Dr. Sharon’s 8 week Hashimoto’s Healing program has been a complete game changer for me. I feel healthier, happier, and have more energy than I have had in years! The program is strategically designed to make it easy for you to make small, incremental changes each week that will impact your overall health. Dr. Sharon is so supportive and is there to help you through every step of her program. She does an excellent job of explaining “why” through the science that underpins these lifestyle changes and ultimately provides participants with the foundational knowledge to live better and feel better despite having Hashimoto’s. Almost a month after completing this program, I’m still living by these principles (which have just become natural habits by now) and I know I feel better because of it! Thank you Dr. Sharon!
