How To Manage Inflammation (and Autoimmune: Thyroid)


- Replace Grains with Non-Starchy Vegetables (10 Vegetables A Day)

Vegetables scrub your system with fiber and minerals

- Have protein with each meal (Seeds, Legumes, Grass-Fed Meats, Avoid Soy)

Protein transports hormones to all cells

- Be Fat (Olive Oil, Seeds, Avocado, Coconut)

Fat (cholesterol) is a precursor to hormones

- Go Gluten-Free

The fad works for thyroid: gluten mimics the chemical composition of thyroid tissue

- Watch out for raw goiterogens (fully cook them)

Includes broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale - all cruciferous vegetables

- Go Glutathione (Avocado, Cooked Broccoli and Spinach)

Glutathione is the most abundant antioxidant in the body and heals thyroid tissue

- Fire Up the Gut

Natural plant compounds including turmeric, ginger, oregano oil, and black cumin oil have anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties to soothe indigestion.

- Practice Elimination Therapy for Food Sensitivities
