I knew it would come to this someday! What I mean is that after listening to the following podcast, I am so convinced I am on the right road, and this interview with Dr. Peter Osborne really confirmed it, that I know I need to deliver information that is not very popular, but necessary. Are we going to be excited to hear what actually works for Hashimotos Thyroiditis? Probably not at the beginning. But after feeling relief and comfort from just knowing there are answers, it will keep us learning more about how diet can be one of the most powerful healing tools we have. What concerned me the most when listening to this podcast was the honest truth that my thyroid medication might not be keeping me truly gluten free. The filler in mine is corn. I used to be concerned about it but then after listening to other gluten experts, I just stopped worrying when I determined that as long as it wasn’t wheat, rye, barley or oat based, I was okay. But this interview convinced me that it’s time to get a compounded version that steers me clear of all forms of gluten, including that which is in corn, that might still be causing me some problems. Also in this podcast is a LOT of talk about thyroiditis and several callers asking questions I would have loved to ask the doctor myself regarding Hashimoto’s Disease. So I had to share it with you all!
Hello All! I have been nudged while reading your comments, to make a quick post about the possible other triggers to Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Although this info is a bit dated (not seriously dated however, but from last year), I feel it touches on an area that hasn’t got enough attention from the Hashimoto’s community and that is cross-reactive grains/foods. My daughter was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s last year and is in the process of getting a cross-reactive food test. I will be taking one in July so this will add some new info to our current diet (gluten free).
Although my last post on Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis was a long standing one, it was on purpose! Getting a battery of testing, preparing for a TRUE gluten free diet, and beginning to create an action plan are all good things, even if it did take many months to establish. I figure, I’ve lived this long with all these symptoms, why not make my next attempt to beat them be a good, strong one. Well, I think, with the help of my doctor, I will! Now, before I move on, I always believe a good link to exceptional material is in order when writing a new post. So, here is the “winner” this time:
