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!
I feel much more prepared to take the next steps in my already successful journey towards healing. It’s great to feel more in control over my symptoms, finally! Don’t make the mistake I did earlier in my diagnoses and believe gluten free doesn’t work, because if you’re like me, you may not have truly gone gluten free without realizing it yet. If you see this post from way back when I first started exploring gluten free, I think you can see that I suspected other grains, and other components of the diet I may not have really understood and it appears my hunches were right. And what is truly gluten free? Are all grains possibly at culprit? These are questions Dr. Osborne attempts to answer and based on my experience, I believe he is right on in most of what he is saying (from a long time sufferer’s experience myself).
Here’s the podcast:
A big thank you to Underground Wellness for continually bringing us pertinent information to help us with healing. My biggest “ah ha” moments have come from podcasts brought to us by Sean Croxton!
For those unsure if diet really helps, my only advice is to try it yourself first before making a judgment. It’s really hard to say good-bye to some of your favorite foods but when you open up your palette to new ideas, the variety of food you can eat is so much wider than you originally believed.
I have a question for all of you out there which will help me deliver more of the information you would like to read:
Do you mind a post here and there which is food related? I mean a post that talks about how to plan ahead for healthy eating and creative food ideas? I want to make sure I stay on target. I know many of you are not gluten free and especially are not grain and sugar free but would you like to include more of these choices on your menu? If so, what do you need most help with? Comment below and it will help me determine what information to include with future posts. Oh, and feel free to comment on Dr. Osborne’s interview. I found it fascinating!
