Michelle Madrigal has made a big revelation about her health recently. In an Instagram post, the actress shared that she has been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease. 

“It is an autoimmune disorder that can cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. It means that my immune system makes antibodies that attack the thyroid gland. The thyroid becomes damaged and can’t make enough thyroid hormones," she wrote. 

She also revealed that she has developed goiter. Michelle said that she will opt for natural ways to heal herself. 

“We all know that Thyroid hormones control how our body uses energy, so they affect nearly every organ in your body. I am lucky that I am not prescribed with any medications yet.. And TBH, I would rather heal myself in a holistic way. I have been doing my research on AIP diet and paleo diet, so I will most likely start with it after our vacation. I started cutting sugar & gluten into my diet and it is amazing that I am not really craving sweets lately,” she said. 

She added, “I know healing my gut is just the first step, but dealing with daily stress and emotional flare ups is also another thing. I really am on a huge “transition phase” of my life this year. So here’s to healing naturally and being healthy from the inside out!”
