For those interested in hearing me talk about my healing journey, I was a guest on the “Know Your Food” podcast with Wardee Harmon this week! Wardee and I have known each other for a few years while I was seeking wellness through natural remedies and nutrient dense food which I learned to make through her fabulous online classes. She was there when I went through my mercury poisoning at the beginning of my GAPS Diet journey and has continued to be a huge support through the many months of my healing through gluten-free, amalgam removal, GAPS Diet Intro and the Full GAPS Diet, to now the fine tuning of my diet for further healing. Her support has been invaluable as well as other members in her classes who offered support through her private class forums.

Hashimotos Thyroiditis: Let’s Go Gluten Free Series #5 – Hidden Gluten in Non-Food Products?

Posted by on Sep 16, 2013 in Cross-Contamination, Let's Go Gluten Free Series | 2 comments

One thing about a person who is on the GAPS Diet like I am, is almost all potential toxins are removed and that includes soaps, make-up, shampoos, etc. leaving me less likely to have a ton of info on this topic to share. But I have researched and come up with some good resources to get you started. And the more I worked on this post, the more I realized how many products I really do still use! First, let’s see if we can determine whether it’s important to go gluten-free with our cosmetics and self-care products.

Hashimotos Thyroiditis: Let’s Go Gluten Free Series #3 – What Food is Safe?

Posted by on Sep 8, 2013 in Cross-Contamination, gluten sensitivity, Let's Go Gluten Free Series | 2 comments

It’s been so long since I’ve started the gluten-free diet, I sometimes forget how confusing it was at the beginning. But I think I can help you by narrowing foods down from the root – just like we are trying to do with our Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. At the very root of the food, does it have gluten? (And remember that we are concentrating on gluten at this point, not overall diet.) This works pretty well for grains like wheat, rye, and barley, but it gets a bit confusing when we look into processed foods. This is where reading labels comes in to play. Here’s my rule of thumb: If it doesn’t say specifically Gluten Free on the label, don’t buy it, especially when first starting out. The worst thing you can do is “trust” that the manufacturer is going to plainly list gluten or wheat on the label ingredients if it’s there.

Hashimotos Thyroiditis: The Joy of Using Dehydrated Foods for Restricted Diets

Posted by on Aug 14, 2013 in Cross-Contamination, Food, gluten sensitivity, hashimotos thyroiditis, The GAPS Diet, thyroiditis, Traditional Food Preparation, Traveling | 2 comments

  Having the right tools for special treats when on a restricted diet is very helpful. My GAPS Diet has significantly improved the severe symptoms I was having from Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I say “special treats” only because when you are on a restricted diet like that of GAPS, SCD, Paleo-type diet, etc, your whole viewpoint of treats is switched from the sweet goodies of the past, like muffins, cookies, candies, etc.,  to other foods that are as convenient to grab but much better for you! Of course, they will be only convenient to grab, if you have made them in advance. That’s just the way it is when you have to make almost everything from scratch. So today I am going to describe how I have been helped tremendously by dehydrating food and snacks for myself while traveling as well as keeping myself emotionally satisfied with my diet. I have to admit, getting creative has been a by-product of a healthy diet. There may be people who will not be able to eat the same foods as what I might be showing here, however, in some cases, I have earned these foods back by the GAPS Diet. What was indigestible 18 months or so ago, I have been able to add back in, which makes these treats much more of a “treat” for me.
