More than 30,000,000 people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder Most affected are women. Some estimates are over 50 million in US and over 200 million worldwide, and growing.

Estimates vary widely as most patients are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because doctors don't know what they are looking for.

Thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. This means that over 27 million people have one or more of the over 105 known autoimmune diseases.

Thyroid Health Recipes: 13 Ways To Prepare Brussels Sprouts


How much do you love Brussels sprouts, let us count the ways!

Brussels sprouts are absolutely in the “love ’em or hate ’em” category for sure. I tend to enjoy them once in a while.


  • The sprouts are packed with vitamins C, A, and potassium.
  • They contain two different powerful anti-cancer properties.


A cruciferous vegetable, which is bad for thyroid health… when eaten raw. And, you won’t be eating Brussels sprouts raw, so, enjoy!

      Hi Rebekah,

      I’m sorry that you might have this frustrating condition, but there are answers.

      Getting the blood test to find out if you have Hashimoto’s is helpful, but you’ll be dealing with hypothyroidism then either way.

      You’ll need to do a couple of things to rebuild your health starting immediately:
      1. DIET
      You’ll need to change your diet and take the necessary supplements to help your symptoms continue to lighten up.

      You can get started on this right away by yourself. The Thyroid Healing Diet is in my Get Your Life Back Manual plus the Checklists that will help you help your doctor help you better.
      Order here: http://thyroidu.com/bookstoreresources/my-thyroid-health-plan-manual/

      2. DOCTOR
      I don’t know if your doctor is thyroid trained, but you’ll need one for the long haul.
      If yours just says to take thyroid medication and that’s all, find a new one close to you at my site page: http://thyroidu.com/practitioners/

      Thank you for finding my site. Keep reading my blog posts for more help.

      You’re in my thoughts,

    Dear Kim,

    I am a design and branding professional, or at least I was! I am fifty one years young and have been struggling with my health, as hind sight is 20/20, since about 1999. It started with exhaustion, anxiety and depression- docs said I was depressed, then peri-menopausal. I’ve had a series of life blows in between from a car accident and loss of large clients to nursing my beloved mothers to her premature death from colon cancer.I have had thyroid tests since the ’99, always testing within range, and then finally came up with a test that showed hypothyroidism only two years ago. At that point I could not get out of bed. I am the classic person who has gone undiagnosed and suffered for years!

    I finally found myself a good doc, who also has his own book. I have improved somewhat, but still cannot get it together. I stumbled upon one of your videos and was captivated with your recommendation of another book, which seems quite contradictory to my doctors approach. Also, you’d mentioned a connection between hypothyroidism and clutter, now I can’t remember exactly what it was as I have the major brain fog!

    All this being said, I am so very impressed with you and your body of work. I know what a tremendous effort it takes to be as prolific and productive as you are as a healthy person. I do not understand your ability to power on and be productive through this experience. Kudos! I have slid from running a thriving design practice earning well over a six figure income to managing exhaustion and pain, dreaming of a miracle to regain my strength, motivation and passion for life and career.

    Thanks for showing me that my life may not quite be over and shining the lighter possibility for me again.

    Kind regards,

      Dear Elizabeth,

      I’m so sorry for all of your losses. Health conditions like this and autoimmune diseases are such thieves of lives.

      I have to remark on your statement, “I do not understand your ability to power on and be productive through this experience.” Believe me, I still have my days that are certainly not as productive as I’d like. But, I do “power on” one activity/step at a time and keep moving.

      It may have something to do with being single and self-employed! It’s all up to me.

      Yes, There is hope and you might consider a 2nd opinion from another thyroid trained practitioner if you are not better than this. You can contact one close to you from my PRACTITIONERS LIST http://thyroidu.com/practitioners/, or call my practitioners office and see how you can have Dr. Jared (#1 on the list) check you lab tests and see what else he might suggest, plus making sure you’re on the thyroid reset diet.

      My good thoughts for your best health go to you now.
