Medical Medium Healing From Hashimoto’s & Vitiligo
The Medical Medium website and Books, by Anthony William, have changed my life. A friend introduced me to his first book called “Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal”. I ordered the book and could not wait to start reading it. What I did not realize was that this was going to be the most important book I have ever read.
If you know me, I am a science geek. I love learning about the body, human anatomy, nutrition and how the body works at the cellular level and of course fitness. Reading every new health and weight loss book to stay on top of trends. By trade, I am a Holistic Health Practitioner as well as a Nationally Certified Personal Trainer.
Epstein-Barr & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Let me give you my health background so you understand where I am coming from. As a teenager, I was diagnosed with Mono-Neucleosis not once but twice. Then in college, the diagnosis was Epstein Barr and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I went from doctor to doctor trying to find out why I was so tired and run down. The doctors could not figure it out. Until I went to one doctor in New York City who told me to change my eating habits and put me on a regiment of supplements. After about 3 months I felt better than I had in years.
Life continued and I went on to have my first baby. When I was 9 months pregnant I lost my father, the rock of our family. Needless to say, it was a sad and stressful time. Not long after that, I lost my only brother to complications from the disease Hemophilia. My world felt out of control. You can read my whole story here.
Shingles Rash & Fitness Competitions – The Outside Does Not Match The Inside
After my third child, I was out of shape and overweight and decided to join a gym. To make a long story short I transformed my body and life. I was in the best shape of my life. I started to compete in figure competitions which entailed strenuous exercise and clean eating. But my body was talking to me and I broke out with the Shingles rash across my back. I will never forget being in the best shape of my life on stage at the prestigious “Arnold Sports Festival”. What the heck was going on!
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Throat Nodule & Vitiligo
I could feel my body starting to slow down. My energy was not where it used to be, I was dragging. How could that be I ate so well, juiced, drank green smoothies and new so much about health and nutrition. The Doctor diagnosed me with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and a nodule on my Thyroid and wanted to put me on medication. Taking medicine is not my thing. I would figure out how to heal it myself naturally.
Then one day I lost the pigment in my skin on both of my shins, across my throat, chest, and parts of my forehead, cheek, and chin. I freaked out! The areas were biopsied and the Dr. said it was Vitiligo. The answer I kept getting from Doctors was that I had an auto-immune disease and my body was attacking itself. Oh heck no I said to myself!
As you can see my body is starting to heal. The Vitiligo on my face is nearly gone and the spots on my chest and neck are starting to fade. Something I thought would never happen.
**My shines with Vitiiligo before in 2015 and after 2018 following Medical Medium
There was a great question asked by a reader. Wanting to know if it took me 2.5 years for my vitiligo to start clearing up. Here is my answer:
This photo was taken in 2015 when my vitiligo first appeared. When I came inside from spending time at the pool I saw large white spots on my shins, face, and chest. Needless to say I was a little freaked out. Immediatly I want and had a biopsy done to see what was going on. The Dr. diagnosed it as Autoimmune Disease & Vitiligo. The Dr. did not know what to do or how to cure it and sent me on my way.
I fell into a mild depression and gave up on doing a lot of the things I loved like making exercise videos and being in the public eye. I bought a lot of long dresses, and large necklaces and tried to cover everything up and live my life, thinking there was nothing I could do. Looking for help/cures online but nothing really helped or was just way too confusing.
I bought Anthony’s first book in April of 2017. It took me a few months to get on board and in the last 8 months, I have done the protocol that I list here on the blog post, supplements, healing teas, heavy metal detox smoothie and CELERY JUICE. Plus yoga and increasing the amount of fruit I am eating.
“Medical research and science are unaware that vitiligo is caused by a virus such as HHV-6 or EBV feeding on aluminum and traces of formaldehyde in the liver and elsewhere in the body, releasing an aluminum-based dermatoxin that, when it enters the skin, destroys the melanin pigments inside skin cells. This is what leads to the white spots and other discolorations that occur for someone living with vitiligo. It is not the skin’s immune system attacking the skin pigment. It is a real illness with a real cause. Aluminum byproduct can float around the bloodstream, waiting to interact with an underlying viral infection, due to something as seemingly minor as your last fluoride treatment at your dentist office (fluoride is an aluminum byproduct). Eventually, science and research will catch on to the effects of viruses and heavy metals on the skin but for now, this information is unknown.”
It did not take me 2.5 years to start seeing progress, it was more like 8 months of following the Medical Medium Protocol and being CONSISTENT.
Everyone was asking me for more photos, especially on my face so I found some. Here you can see my chest and neck where the spots are starting to fade.
In this photo, you can see the spots on my chin, left side & right side of my nose, very faintly in this photo you can see my forehead and my hairline have white spots.
Medical Medium – How I Started To Heal My Body
When I started reading Anthony William’s book “Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal I could not believe what I was reading. It was as if he personally wrote this book for me.
He explained what the Epstein-Barr virus is how it progresses in the body. It can lay dormant usually in the liver for years until a stressful or traumatic event happens (competing/weight training & death of family members) when your immune system is at its lowest and then it takes hold even deeper. For me, it progressed into the Shingles Virus, then moved into my Thyroid where my body tried to protect itself by walling off the Epstein-Barr virus creating a nodule to protect itself.
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrom
No doctor, or holistic practitioner was ever able to explain all the symptoms and why they were happening before. Except for “Spirit” and Anthony William.
My Body Was Not Attacking Itself It Was Trying To Protect Itself
My Healing Protocols With Medical Medium
Healing protocols are going to be different for everyone. Being a holistic health practitioner I was already gluten-free, eating my fruits & veggies, dairy, and soy-free. The first thing I did was to take out eggs. They are a food that the Epstein-Barr virus loves to eat! Yes, I said eat, they eat foods and love heavy metals.
In his first book, Anthony has a 28-Day Healing Cleanse & Healing Meditation Techniques that you can follow. His second book Life Changing Foods Book is off the charts amazing. It’s not a recipe book (though it does have recipes) it describes healing foods, how they work in the body, their benefits, emotional support they give and the spiritual lessons they teach.
Team Celery Juice Tank Top
This is the #teamceleryjuice tank that I am proud to wear (the writing is celery juice green). You can get one from my lovely friend @KatieMoonstone in Instagram and her website TeamCeleryJuice
1. CELERY JUICE
If I had to pick one thing to start to implement it would be juicing celery juice. It has made such a huge difference in my body. When I first started juicing it I could only do a little at a time. But now I have grown to love, respect and appreciate what it does for my body.
“Celery juice is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods because it starves unproductive bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, and viruses that are present in the body and flushes their toxins and debris out of the intestinal tract and liver”. ~ Medical Medium
2. WILD BLUEBERRIES – Heave Metal Detox Smoothie
The second food I would highly recommend incorporating into your diet right away would be WILD BLUEBERRIES. Not the kind you find in the plastic clamshells at the grocery store. Those are cultivated blueberries similar to farm-raised salmon. I get my wild blueberries in the frozen food section of the health food or grocery store. Wild blueberries are loaded with antioxidants, they have the highest proportion of antioxidants of any food on the planet. Plus they taste amazing!
Sample Day Of Healing Meals
Fruits & Veggies should all be organic if possible and budget allows.
- Upon Waking – I drink a very large glass of lemon water. This helps detox the liver.
- Pre-Breakfast – 16 oz pure celery juice. I use the juicer below
- Breakfast – Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie (watch the video below) sometimes I add a vegan protein powder
- Mid-Morning – 1 piece of fruit (apple, orange, pear or melon), celery sticks, a few dates or figs, and raw pumpkin seeds if I am still hungry. Or a banana with almond butter.
- Lunch – Large green salad with veggies, homemade dressing. A sweet potato or baked potato plain. Sometimes I will eat wild salmon with veggies.
- Tea – I drink healing herbal teas all day long to support my immune system
- Mid-Afternoon – It may be another Heavy Metal Detox smoothie or fruit with celery sticks or my favorite Raw Crunch Bar.
- Dinner – Large homemade vegetable soup, or a large green salad or a raw dish like my zucchini noodle bowl. Or try my Sweet Potato Spaghetti Recipe.
- Evening Tea – I choose from one of 4 different herbal teas that specifically help with my ailments. Licorice root, cat’s claw, nettle leaf, or raspberry leaf.
- PM Snack – Orange, apple or pear
3. Herbal Healing Teas Recommended By Medical Medium
Healing herbals teas are also a staple in my daily healing routine. Please don’t underestimate the healing benefits of herbal teas. This is a list of the teas I use. I rotate them and choose what tea is calling to me that day. You can find a whole list of recommended teas and supplements on the Medical Medium Blog. I love lemon balm and use loose leaf lemon balm and mix it with a tea bag of Cats Claw, Raspberry, Nettle Leaf or Dandelion tea.
Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie Video
Follow along and make a detox smoothie with me. This is from one of my Facebook Live videos.
I started slow with the supplements and slowly added more to my regime. I tried to list them in the order I started taking them. On the Medical Medium website, you will see all the supplements Anthony recommends. Pick the supplements that call to you and your current health issues.
Here are the supplements I use and take today.

If you are tired of being sick and tired of not getting to the bottom your medical issues. Then please make it a priority to read these books. I truly know and believe you will find the answers you have been searching for here in these life-changing books. Read them, soak in the information, listen to Anthony William on Hay House Radio, his website MedicalMedium.com & his show on the Sound Cloud App
I Had Given Up On Healing My Body
I walked away from my popular YouTube health & fitness channel because I did not have the energy anymore. Having the Vitiligo on my face and body I also did not want to get on camera anymore. My symptoms may be mild compared to yours. I know you can heal your body. Will it take work? yes. Will it take dedication? yes. But you can do it. I believe in you.
What Hashimoto’s & Vitiligo Has Taught Me
I know beyond a shadow of a doubt my family, friends and my social media family love me because I am me. Not because I have spots on my face but because I am me and that will never change. Just like you are beautiful and amazing just the way you are.
Did you know there are fashion models with Vitiligo? Visit @WinnyHarolow on Instagram. She is absolutely gorgeous!
Cover Girl makeup featured their first-ever model with Vitiligo in a new ad. My point is don’t let anything hold you back from being who you were meant to be. The world needs you and your amazing gifts and talents.
So go out there baby and SHINE, SHINE, SHINE.
