Graves' Disease Success Stories

My coach has been awesome! I look forward to talking with her each week. She has helped me learn so much about my symptoms and managing food sensitivities in the few weeks I have used Mymee. It would have taken me years if ever with my doctor. She has given me insights into autoimmune, sleep, dietary relationships I would not have learned otherwise! I was a little leery about speaking to a coach each week but now I am totally comfortable talking to her and again look forward to our calls!
