I want everyone of us to be able to say this!
After almost 5 months of treatment for Hashimoto’s Disease (10/9/10), my new blood tests show that it’s gone! Well, what that means is I’m just over the fence from it and just in the field of hypothyroidism again. But, that’s progress!
How’d I do it? Two things:
There is exercise, of course and other lifestyle changes, but these two are the most important. (This assuming you are already on a thyroid hormone medication like Synthroid as well).
Staying committed to a clean diet that keeps inflammation down and allergies starved is the trick.
That means: Vegetables, fruit, meat, fish and nuts. Lots of fiber from this group. Period! Lots of water too of course.
And, the big NO to: Gluten (flour, corn, grains); sugar (only Stevia); and dairy and soy (I chose to use almond milk).
If you’re feeling sluggish, fatigue, depressed, moody, low energy and sex drive, try this diet for at least 6 months to help your body get back to balance and give it time to heal. You will also lose weight doing this – a nice side affect! I lost 18 lbs in the first 5 months without trying to. (It would be very hard to gain weight on this diet.)
WARNING! A symptom of hypothyroidism is constipation. Eating this new diet will add to constipation sometimes unless you’re diligent about getting vegetables and water in early in the day and getting your body up and out for exercise.
HIGH QUALITY SUPPLEMENTS
I worked with my doctor on this and though it will be pretty much the same for most people with Hashimoto’s Disease, I couldn’t recommend what I was prescribed. But I will tell you that Vitamins D and D3 are a must.
Vitamin D and D3 is almost non-existant in our bodies with this disease, and most all autoimmune diseases, so you could start taking more of that to help you build up your system.
