Women’s fertility is on the brain for us. Why? Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics recently reported that while U.S. birth rates have hit record lows for teens (62.9 births per 1,000 women), data is showing a rise among older women this past year. A quick overview of what was reported: Continue reading

Sometimes the mightiest things come in small packages. Enter the thyroid. The powerful gland (located in your neck) is not-so-large-but-very-much-in-charge of all performance areas of your life, from metabolism and bone growth to hair and nail production. For something we’re so reliant on, it might be surprising to know that thyroid dysfunction runs rampant in the U.S. Even more surprising is that of the 30 million that experience this abnormality, over half of those are undiagnosed.

One Woman’s Story of Unexplained Weight Gain and What She Learned Was Actually Happening

deborah_alexanderIt started 4 years ago. Within a span of one year, Deborah gained about 30 pounds. She wasn’t pregnant and she hadn’t changed her diet or workout routine.

She had always had genetically elevated cholesterol, but it began to grow even higher along with her weight gain.

What made it even stranger was that Deborah was competing on a master’s rowing team, lifting weights with a trainer, swimming, and watching what she was eating. There was no visibly apparent reason that she should have been gaining weight. Continue reading

One of the growing epidemics in the U.S. is a disease called hypothyroidism. The thyroid is an organ that influences and inevitably controls every aspect of our being. In light of its critical role, it may come as a shock that as many as 50% of the more than 25 million people with thyroid problems remain undiagnosed.

The word “thyroid” comes from the ancient Greeks and appropriately means, “shield.” The thyroid gland not only shields the body from wearing down from stress and disease, but also serves as the major catalyst for stimulating energy, muscle growth, and a clear and sharp brain. A poorly functioning thyroid, for example, will interfere with exercise by either eliminating the possibility of building muscle or causing you to cancel your workouts altogether. As for keeping off the pounds, despite hours in the gym and low caloric intake, the body will be unable to lose weight. Even under otherwise ideal performance, the body will not be able to burn fat when the thyroid slows down. All in all, how the thyroid functions either makes or breaks performance in all areas of your life.

Rachel Quotes 1

Rachel knows that real health isn’t only about how you look, or how you feel. Like the old adage goes, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

She came to WellnessFX through the FitFluential campaign already with this mindset. Still, WellnessFX “absolutely’ exceeded her expectations.

Although WellnessFX was not yet available in Massachusetts (we’re working on it!), Rachel traveled to her home town in Connecticut to have her draw. She documented her experience pretty thoroughly on her blog. Here’s a quick summary:
